  • Given 1×11 Review: “Song2”

    Alas, we have come to the end of Given. “Song2” is a sweet, fluffy, super chill conclusion to a surprisingly angsty story. I’m both thrilled and annoyed that it was left so open-ended, but I’m so happy that I got to go on this journey with these big gay disasters. Read our before commenting. Please do […]


  • Given 1×10 Review: “Wonderwall”

    After the explosiveness of last week’s episode, calling this episode “Wonderwall” almost seems like a meta joke. “Hey, sorry for making you choke on your emotions; anyway, here’s ‘Wonderwall’.” The tonal shift is ridiculous but so well done and indicative of this show as a whole.

  • Given 1×09 Review: “A Winter Story”

    When they didn’t show a preview for this episode last week, I knew it was going to be a great episode. “A Winter Story” packed so much emotion and just so much into 22 minutes that you have to wonder how that was able to fit in such a short amount of time. Read our before […]


  • Given 1×08 Review: “Time Is Running Out”

    Time is running out until The Seasons’ live performance, and the song they intend to perform still doesn’t have any lyrics. Everyone is worried, and tempers are running hot.

  • Given 1×07 Review: “Tumbling Dice”

    “Tumbling Dice” is yet another episode where not a lot happens action-wise, but we get some amazing character moments. This kind of episode seems to be the core of Given as a series, and it excels at them. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites.

  • Given 1×06 Review: “Creep”

    I spent much of this episode trying to figure out just what the title was meant to reference. Is “Creep” referring to a person? The pace of the story? The existential dread that looms behind us all? Or are we just picking random song titles? Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content […]


  • Given 1×05 Review: “The Reason”

    I can’t believe we’re getting a Hoobastank reference in this year of our lord 2019, much less one in an anime, but “The Reason” is actually an incredibly apt title, considering the subject matter of this episode.

  • Given 1×04 Review: “Fluorescent Adolescent”

    “Fluorescent Adolescent” is an excellent example of how to achieve a lot in an episode while very little actually happens. The plot is light but the character interactions and developments are massive. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites. Linkbacks are encouraged.
