Gotham: Season 2 “Wrath of the Villains”

Now that Theo Galavan is out of the picture and the Penguin is public enemy #1, things are a mess in Gotham. So, of course, Gordon heads back to the police force. 6968

Suits: Season 5b

Well, I was wrong about Mike's arrest for fraud being a cliffhanger gimmick. The second half of season 5 of USA's legal drama finally forces the firm of Pearson Specter Litt to deal with the secret at the hart of Mike Ross' career.  6865

Gotham: Season 2 “Rise of the Villains”

After they dropped Jerome in episode 3, I left Gotham on the back burner. Now that they've hit their winter finale, I've come back to see where the show is now. 5958

Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic – Season 1

This series premiered in 2013 and the first season showed up on Netflix, seemingly, immediately. I put off watching it for a while, but I finally decided to give in and watch Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic. I was going to just do a write-up of the entire series, but the story is so heavily partitioned that I thought it best to do this one season at a time. 4680

Suits: Goodbye Donna – Season 4 Episodes 14-16

Now that Mike's secret is out in the open (at least within the firm), the last three episodes of the season worked to tie up some loose ends as well as featuring Donna. 4699

Log Horizon – Season 2 – Episodes 1-12

After Shiroe's economic wizardry in the first season, Akihabara has a problem. Put simply, the Akihabara round table doesn't have the funds they need to keep things going the way they have been. Shiroe's solution to this problem involves an obscene amount of money, more than possibly exists. Recap Shiroe heads out on the mission without letting anyone know the full scope of his plans. He leaves Akihabara taking only Naotsugu and Regan with him. As a first step he sets up a meeting with Kinjou, a representative of the Kunie clan (also called the Sacrifice clan).  With the help of Regan, the Sage of Miral lake, Shiroe has figured out that clan is responsible for the flow of money in the game/world. The source of the flow of money in Elder Tale is in a place called Depths of Palm, which is controlled /guarded by the Kunie. Shiroe had spoken to Kinjou as a pretense so that he could size him up before trying to get to the "golden whirlpool" that all the money in Elder Tale flows through. Before he leaves, Kinjou tells Shiroe that he'll have to complete a raid in order to get the gold. Most of this setup is explained in the first episode of the season, but it's a little hard to keep track of because the first episode jumps around through past, present and future. Actually there's a few episodes that are out of time or overlapping as they depict incidents that are going on

Akame Ga Kill! – Episodes 1-12

If you were to take Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple, mix it with Basilisk, and then season that mixture liberally with Deadman Wonderland, you would get Akame Ga Kill. Warning, some minor spoilers follow, but most of these reviews contains spoilers so you probably knew that already. 827
