3 Episode Rule – Moriarty the Patriot

3 Episode Rule is a series in which I watch the first three episodes of a new anime and decide whether to stick with it or drop it based on those three episodes alone.

Man, where have all these anime been all year? I’ve been bemoaning how sparse the offerings have been all year and now the fall season seems like the quarter that just keeps on giving. And once again I’m here; thankful I forgot to cancel that Funimation subscription six months ago.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Revisited – Part 27: Pitch Black (Part 1)

As I get into season four, I realise that a lot of these episodes are coming in four-episode blocks.

But I’m just glad that it feels like we’re ending 2020 on a high.

Of course, that’s just based off me watching the first three episodes of these shows. Said gun jumping seems to have happened anyway, there’s still plenty of time for them to all muck it up.
