SERVICEABLE SWORDPLAY | Katana Maidens Mid-Season Impressions

The first video is the episode hosted on YouTube; if it's down due to some bogus copyright claim, hit the jump (i.e., click Read more below) and watch the second video instead.

Katana Maidens, Toji no Miko, Kanami Etou, and all related characters and intellectual property belong to Studio Gokumi, Funimation, and any other person or entity they belong to not explicitly named here. This video is a review and uses clips to illustrate our points; it is Fair Use by law and in practice in both Canada and the United States of America. Questions/concerns should be directed to tfgtg2@gmail.com with the subject line "Re: Katana Maidens Anime Rave reviews."

The following video is in WebM format. Why? Well, WebM videos render way smaller (like 70% to 90%, no joke) than MP4s and are still broadly compatible. Chrome and Firefox will play WebM videos; Safari and IE/Edge will not, nor will iPhones/iPads with ANY browser (blame Apple for that one). You can also download the video to play in VLC or some other media player. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

  1. This got removed from YouTube while I was literally in the middle of watching it.

    Before I watch the rest, I'm gonna bet you never even used any Audio from the show.

    1. And I left this comment so quickly I didn't even see that there isn't a non YouTUbe upload.

  2. For me the non YouTube video worked on Chrome but not on Firefox.

    I was right, you never played any audio form the show. How did this get taken down?

    I think everyone sounds great in the Dub, the second core has Monica Rail sounding the most.... Mature she ever has.

    I get being annoyed by Yuri bait, but I'd still rather have that then no Yuri at all. Which is often the only choice we have since the Japanese government does interfere in the Anime industry. From what I hear Darling in the FRANXX is pretty transparently a government mandate.
