Flip Flappers – Episode 13 (END)

I seem to have entered a love and hate relationship with Flip Flappers. I love it for the myriad of reasons I’ve written about — with some of which still stuck in my head yet to be voiced out — and I hate it because, well… I think it’s more apt to say that I […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 12

I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the last episode of Flip Flappers. I won’t dwell on this too much, but yeah episode 12 is a storyboarder’s nightmare. There certainly were parts wherein it’s starting to get good, but then the next instant you will find yourself abruptly shown a different storyline/scene instead of capping […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 11

But I still need you, Salt! Please, run away with us! Thank you for being with me all these years. Blegh. For the record, I watched this episode 3 (and a half) times, as well as episode 4 because why the hell not. That’s an indication of how disturbed I am with this swing of […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 10

Hopefully, Flip Flappers won’t close its curtains without a good bang. Rather, I hope Flip Flappers would prove my gut feeling wrong: that its finale is going to be second only to Euphonium‘s burgeoning emotional climax. While my fears were founded from the thought that we would be left with a discombobulated mess of an ending, […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 9

A departure from its usual rendition of quirky and cryptic Pure Illusions, episode 9 takes us into a straightforward yet equally fun presentation. I want to applaud Flip Flappers for its ability in making a setting simple, all the while keeping ample nuances to make it interesting and enjoyable to watch. The vast swath of white from this week’s Pure […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 8

8 episodes in, and Flip Flappers doesn’t seem to be running out of ideas. In fact, I feel like revelations are having an adverse effect in making this show even more obscure. While this episode lacks in symbolic depth as with its previous counterparts, episode 8 makes up for it with sheer sakuga display. I’m not really […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 7

If anything, this week’s Flip Flappers is a game changer. That’s not to say I understood any of it though. Episode 7 felt like we’ve been thrown back into square one. Like literally, cause if you’ll remember, one theory about Pure Illusion is it being Dante’s Inferno/Hell and Yayaka’s “joke” made me skeptical whether or […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 6

After all the praises and admiration I gave for Flip Flappers, I think it should be fair of me to say now that it’s definitely Anime of the Season. I feel like writing an essay is a more appropriate option when it comes to talking about Flip Flappers. Every episode has its own distinct charm and personality that […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 5

I did ask for something Corpse Party-ish for this episode, but I wasn’t expecting I’d actually get it. Let’s be real. Fall 2016 is one of the strongest season there is in recent memory, and its 5th week is one of the best I’ve seen in a while. I usually tweet weekly rankings for the lulz and […]

Flip Flappers – Episode 4

Wow. That episode sure went fast. I’m glad that Flip Flapper‘s sense of adventure doesn’t limit itself only within the Pure Illusion worlds. This episode was meant to be a breather, an opportune time for us to get to know the characters outside their millieu, yet even the laid-back and ‘down to earth’ moments still has […]
