Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 13 (END)

For the nth time, I guess we can finally say the adventure is just starting? In retrospect, blogging about ToZX had been quite a difficult prospect for me due to the nature of the show and my relationship with it. Though, regardless of my overall negative feedback every episode, ToZX still managed to cap its first season […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 12

Been a while since I’ve got hyped up for a ToZX episode. Episode 12 stages what is actually one of my favorite part of the game (and one of the most tedious grinds I played). With the finale arriving next week, I’m pretty hyped up for what’s going to happen next given that ToZX proved that […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 11

The fight for the title of Best Girl continues this week as Alisha displays her daunting resolve with style. Too bad Lailah’s still on the top of my list. I’ll be keeping this post short as most of the good stuff happened at the end. Anyways, it was pretty good episode, all right, and I can’t […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 10

Hey, this is actually a fairly entertaining episode! With in-jokes strewn around, even the veteran Shepherd within me is pleased to hear those familiar shenanigans again. It’s another hectic episode for our heroes, yet, in-between the hellion hack and slash and community service are little nuggets of comedic value. It has been quite a while since Sorey and […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 9

Oh, look. It’s the quest I never bothered to finish! Episode 9 is thankfully a huge improvement from last week’s lackluster performance. Though if I have to be candid, it’s starting to become difficult for me to see myself liking this adaptation than what I initially expected out of it — unless they have something […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 8

I honestly don’t know what to make of this episode. While it’s nice to have Sorey and the crew back on center stage, it would’ve been a much better welcome party if the hype the storm — and Velvet’s advertisement — built up hadn’t been so… anti-climatic and underwhelming. Yes, I get it. Again, I’m led to believe that the […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 7

I can’t bring myself to be salty about this episode considering that Berseria is giving Zestiria a run for its money. Seriously. I’m bummed out that Berseria‘s inclusion into ToZX‘s narrative is entirely irrelevant aside from being a promotional propaganda. I’m not even sure if blogging this and the previous episode was worth it because I don’t see myself playing Berseria‘s game […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 6

Umm, yeah… We’re still watching Tales of Zestiria the X, guys. If nothing else, episode 6 serves as a shameless promotion for the upcoming Tales of Bersersia game dated to release in Japan next week. While the inclusion of Velvet and her crew into the timeline of Zestiria makes sense in a business standpoint, nothing has been […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 5

From here on out, Tales of Zestiria the X enters unknown territory. What I’ve noticed whilst blogging about this show is that I’m not that blown away with scenes I already knew from the game, but rather it’s with the anime-original inclusions that keeps me hooked and intrigued with this adaptation. Thus, just like Sorey and his […]

Tales of Zestiria the X – Episode 4

EX- CA- LI- BUUURRRRRRRRRRR! Fuck yeah. Yes, I know. I’m on the wrong show. Can’t help it though — Tales of Zestiria the X went full Unlimited Blade Works this episode. Despite evidence that I’m starting to enjoy ToZX, there are still instances that prevents me to rate the show above the rest that are consistently better. Being […]
