Netflix has dropped a new batch of episodes of Love, Death and Robots, its anthology adult animation series of short stories mixing SF, horror and humour. Compared to its first season (reviewed here), it’s gone for quality over quantity, and that’s to the good. There are eight episodes, compared to eighteen in the first season. But six of the new ones are really good, and even the forgettable ones are technically excellent.

In 2013, the Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe took the remarkable step of appearing on YouTube to talk about Japanese food. He was addressing the nation, and the world, about Japan’s unique culinary tradition, or washoku, as part of an effort to get it rated as one of UNESCO’s treasures of intangible cultural heritage. But as authors Katarzyna Cwiertka and Miho Yasuhara point out in their book Branding Japanese Food, Abe was spinning a ridiculous yarn. Japan had been prompted, somewhat belatedly, into bigging up its classier cuisine after French food had received a UNESCO nod.

Mirai Nikki (The Future Diary) is a death game anime, in which the gamemaster is God Himself. Well, he calls himself Deus Ex Machina, and he looks like a giant-sized skeleton, but he still seems to be the right chap. He oversees a wild tournament, involving murder, torture, explosions, severed heads, decayed bodies – in short, this isn’t Ludo. You win or you die, probably very painfully and messily.
