I never intended to write episodic reviews of any of the shows I’m watching this season, but after seeing episode four of God of High School, I couldn’t help myself but come on here and comment on what a weird, out of left field episode this ended up being. So I feel like this post is going to descend into more of a rant than proper review. So if you adored “marriage/bonds” for some reason, prepare to be triggered.
I wasn’t originally intending to do episodic reviews of any shows this season, but what with My Hero Academia over, I needed something new to occupy this slot, or I would when I used to have more structure to my weekly uploads. These day I’m just chucking stuff up whenever. I mean, you’re getting a Saturday upload this week. It’s outa control!
Today, I’m going to talk a little more in depth about episode 4 of pretty much the only new seasonal anime still airring, and pull my hair out as I keep asking I’m not sure are meant to be asked of Tower of God.
Y’know, when this started, I was not expecting Fire Force to become a show about corrupt corporations and uncovering government conspiracies. With all the religious overtones and fantasy trappings of the characters and the setting, at the very least I can praise it’s capacity to surprise me.
In this episode, we really start to get into the weeds of Special Fire Force Company 8’s role within the greater Fire Force, and see just how this rag-tag, underfunded operation have a seemingly impossible role in comparison to the other seven companies that precede them.
