Week #1 – Spring Anime 2017

Week #1 has arrived with this Spring anime season. What’s in store this week?!

As always I’m live reacting (though typing it out to be posted later) to each episode I watch and going over what happens in each episode with the occasional quip and joke here and there. So for those trying to avoid spoilers, this entire article is full of them!

NOTE: Because I lost so many shows to Anime Strike (more on them Saturday…) or not being on anything at all, I’ve added a couple shows to the list that I didn’t green light in the preview post.


Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

Our story takes place in a magical academy where the school uniforms forgot to cover girls’ stomachs. We start off with two girls, Rumia and Sistine, two girls who are a little sad that their favourite teacher retired. They nearly get trampled by a guy who they deal with pretty quick and then tries to flirt with the two after. He’s quite the asshole. Oh and he’s the replacement for that teacher. Apparently he’d completely under-qualified for the job as well and on top of that, he’s lazy as fuck, the first class he wants to just be a self-study class. According to the school Glenn doesn’t even have a license to teach, but he was recommended by the top magician in the academy, Celica. She’s more than willing to take all consequences for anything that happens, she must really see something in him. Back at class, they’re shocked by what’s going on, like this must be a joke. Sistine’s had enough, about to go off on him when the bell rings and he’s gone. She needs healing afterwards…which is feeling up Rumia while they’re changing. Oh and he walks in on them changing and doesn’t even try to apologize. Dejected afterwards, Sistine really doesn’t know what to do now. She tells us her goal in unraveling the secrets of the sky castle above them, but Glenn interrupts that too. She starts getting coy with him and he tells her to just come out with it. But he feeds her before she can talk. We see afterwards how this job came to be, basically Celica was going to kill him if he didn’t take the job. That’s it. Sistine then comes out with it, that her father has stroke around the academy and could fire him and he’s happy to hear it. However he touched her hand, so she challenges him to magic duel. All right, who’s placing bets on him knocking her clothes off by the end of the battle? If he loses, he has to teach them properly…but if Sistine loses…well we don’t know. The rules are set, they can only use one spell. And she beats him in one shot. And then again. And again. And again. But he’s not accepting the loss and terms of losing and runs off. 

THE GOOD

  • This show is absolutely hilarious, Kazuya is a riot
  • The concept is really interesting, I wonder how it’ll actually turn out as we go forward

THE BAD

  • Okay I know this show must have been clearly designed for ecchi, but what the fuck is with the tops of these uniforms?!

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Alice to Zouroku (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

This first episode is double the length. Kill me…

A blonde girl is walking out in the middle of a forest and it appears someone is after her. She appears to be some sort of research subject, seemingly capable of magic. Another magic user who possesses two giant arms as a familiar of sorts, she leaves to go after this girl and upon finding her, demands to return with her, but she refuses. However it seems she exhausted all her energy and passes out. She’s then saved by another magic user who also has a shield in her possession and a lance soon thereafter. She tells the girl to jump to a town and cause as much commotion as she can…for some reason. This woman knocks out all the surveillance in the area and even makes part of a bridge disappear, in order to allow the blonde girl to escape. Her name is Alice (shocking!) and is called the “Red Queen” at times, there are a number of Wonderland references early on here. We see a few more ability users potentially, the token small quiet girl and twins. The team continues to try and find Alice, arriving in Shinjuku. We then flip to an old man who made something for…maybe a yakuza boss? He leaves and comes across Alice in a convenience store, apparently she’s been there for hours. She uses her power to identify him and EVERYTHING else in between. She tries to make a deal between the two of them but he’s not playing around, so she just jumps and disappears. Though when she realizes she’s in trouble, she tries again with him. They’re suddenly under attack by the twins and a chase ensues. They try and try (well Alice tries, the old man wants out), but eventually crash. The sisters want her to return to the facility and claim they all can’t live in the outside world, but Alice believes differently. They’re about to shoot Alice when Zouroku intervenes…but gives all three of them a smack and a scolding. They’re all brought to the police station, but Alice soon teleports out not long after. The sisters are pulled out by someone as well, likely a person higher up than the police that heads this research facility. The old man’s released as well and finds his car repaired perfectly, likely Alice doing it. All the pictures and videos are suddenly erased of the incident, all traces are gone. As if it never happened. He takes that car and scraps it, feeling bad karma from it. At a restaurant, she appears before him once again. She explains a little bit of what she and the others are and claims she will make him her servant. That doesn’t go over well with him, but upon learning how long it’s been since she ate, he treats her. Apparently food is the source of their power. She tells him how she intends to destroy the facility she escaped from and wants his help. She gives her real name, Sana, but that’s really all she knows, that Sana may not even be her real name. He then tells her she can stay and eat, but she’ll work for him as well and she’s not allowed to use her powers, that her actions around him could’ve had severe consequences had she encountered someone far more dangerous. We see men meeting about the current situation and how it’s pertinent they get Sana back, as if she’s the most powerful of all the users. Back with Sana and Zouroku, they arrive at his place of work, where he tends to a lot of flowers, which naturally amazes her. We then flip to that yakuza guy, who’s giving this flower gift to his girl, perhaps to propose? Finally, our heroes have returned home and she passes out immediately. It’s likely he reminds her a lot of his granddaughter, hence why he’s allowing this.

I sat through the 40 minutes of play and honestly, I think this show is going to be a fantastic one for the audience it’s intended for. The audience however, isn’t me. I was pretty bored through most of it, waiting for that big hook to pull me in, but it never came. It’s very fantasy, magical girl, those kinds of anime and that theme just doesn’t seem to work with me. So I won’t be pursuing this one further.

THE GOOD

  • I like the character designs, especially with the “villains” and especially the twins
  • The initial relationship between Sana and Zouroku is quite entertaining to watch

THE BAD

  • Nothing hooked me, I just sat and stared for almost a full hour
  • The car chase scenes were brutally animated, oh my god it was hard to look at, it was so badly animated

Episode Score: 3/5 ***DROPPED***

Clockwork Planet (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

Ugh…the world was already destroyed? You’re gonna have to do well to get me out of this cliched hole. Someone repaired the planet somehow, making a world solely comprised of gears. Then we’ve got helicopters and robots fighting people. The leader is being smug and the others are yelling at each other, this show is already at its five minute warning with me. Oh, the real leader is a gothic lolita who speaks like she’s a god…four minutes. Wait…is the master this smug kid?! …Three minutes. A month prior, that boy wants to be a clocksmith like the person who created the Clockwork Planet to begin with, but he sucks. He demands a sign and a coffin literally drops into his place. Inside, that gothic lolita girl. Two minutes, by the way. 

All right fuck it, I fast-forwarded a bit to see if anything interesting happened and it’s all so cliche it hurts. Like I wanted to turn it off almost immediately, man it’s beyond my taste in anime…and I have an admittedly shit taste!

Episode Score: DNF ***DROPPED***


Eromanga-sensei (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

Masamune not long ago had a new little sister from I’m assuming a second marriage? But since that day, she holes up in her room, he hasn’t seen her face since. He’s a high schooler but also writes light novels. Apparently an incident happened a year ago that caused Sagiri, his step-sister to hole up in her room. He talks about the erotic art that one person has been drawing for him ever since he started, but has yet to meet this person. You know EXACTLY where this is going. With a friend, Tomoe, he gets upset over someone making fun of his autograph style, which turns out to be Eromanga-sensei, the person who draws his art. He goes home to watch Eromanga-sensei live streaming and talking trash about Masamune’s choices in writing. However, when Sagiri shows herself on camera with a mask on, she fails to leave the note Masamune left on her food tray out of the shot. He tries to deny it, but it gets worse. She forgets to turn her camera off and starts undressing out of the camera view, but he knows what could potentially happen. He bangs on the door to tell her and then she finally opens the door and he sees her for the first time. He asks her about her identity, but she denies it. When he says her art is erotic though, she gets pissed off and resumes hiding in her room. He meets the next day with his manager who gives him an envelope that really implores him to talk to Sagiri and reveal he’s the writer of the novels she’s been drawing for. She opens the door and whacks him good with it, but offers her to come into the room. She asks how he knew who she was and tells her he saw the meal with his note. She had a feeling he might’ve been the author, after all his pen name is the exact same as his real name, but thought maybe it was just a coincidence. Then they fight over the whole ‘erotic’ thing, but eventually calm down and talk about their time apart in the past year. The incident we learn, is their mother passing away, because of course dead parents. She lost her will to draw, but upon seeing someone streaming and enjoying it, she started doing it as well and loved it too. It appears that Sagiri was potentially his first fan too. He wants them to be family, but for whatever reason that stirs Sagiri to want him out of the room, she suddenly gets real cold, even when he thanks her for drawing a novel completion congratulations piece for him. 

THE GOOD

  • The show has some real promise, the potential comedy and adorability with this show is very high

THE BAD

  • The problem is this episode for a comedy is way too cold and depressing, it really needs to get its shit together
  • Seriously anime? Sagiri and her mother move in and Mom dies almost immediately?! Come the fuck on with the dead parents bullshit already!

Episode Score: 3/5

 

 

 


Granblue Fantasy the Animation (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

Two girls are fleeing from someone, Lyria and Katalina are their names. A man has a jewel that seemingly controls the one in Lyria’s possession, until it suddenly breaks out of the case and explodes, sending Lyria out into the forest deep below. We revert to our hero Gran with his friend Aaron. A tiny dragon Vyrn shows up as well, obviously the mascot of the show. They all see something fall out of a flying battleship and into the forest beyond, obviously being Lyria. Apparently they hit a point where they’re supposed to not go any further, but when does that stop a hero? They find Lyria unconscious and wake her up and the introductions begin. She asks about Katalina but of course they know nothing and now the soldiers arrive to take her back. So he fights them. They shoot a flare, which Katalina, who’s very much alive sees it as well and runs for it. Upon being surrounded, she arrives to help them and they escape for now. Katalina thanks the two for their help, but won’t tell them anything specific about what’s going on. He offers however to help her to the airship she’s got set for the two of them, not wanting to leave this halfway. They come across more soldiers harassing civilians and they help them along the way, though the civilian warns Gran that he’s playing with fire if he’s getting involved. Then the big boss arrives to say hello and has summoned a five-headed dragon. Guess Gran’s literally playing with fire now and is mortally wounded. Like a giant wound in his chest. Vyrn is crushed and Lyria loses it, her powers activating and giving herself to Gran to bring him back, but the man stops her with the jewel before she can finish. Oh wait, he’s alive now, did she actually finish? So they summon Bahamut, because why wouldn’t you just summon the dragon overlord? 

THE GOOD

  • I can already see a leader in the sexy girl running with Katalina, she is gorgeous
  • FUCKING BAHAMUT!!!

THE BAD

  • The animation is real rough, throws me off at times

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 


Hinako Note (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

Hinako appears to be in Tokyo for the first time, likely a country girl.

(PS: Wow I feel bad for the voice actresses trying to sing this song. It’s a fun song, but holy crap it’s a mess of time signatures!

She’s now lost trying to find the place she’s staying at. A police officer spooks her and apparently it makes her activate the “scarecrow technique”, which just appears to be a pose similar to one that she does when she’s nervous. She finally finds the place, a lovely young woman manning the bookstore she’s apparently staying at. She eats paper and her name is Kuina. Apparently she loves books so much, she wants to eat them? Never change, anime. Upon getting to her room, there’s a maid in there! This is bullshit, I want a maid too! Mayu is her name, she’s not a maid, but loves wearing the clothes. They go downstairs into a connecting coffee shop that Mayu works at. Hinako talks about wanting to overcome her nerves, moved by a theater performance, so she wants to become an actress. Problem though, the theater club shut down the year prior to her arrival. So now Hinako’s in a bad spot, she’s going to a school where the only reason she wanted to go is gone. Even worse, she realizes she has to work while staying at the apartment and can’t figure out how she’ll do it with her nerves on full display. The girls decide to show her around, taking her to a park not far from the apartment. They stop almost immediately for Kuina cause she’s hungry. Then at the park, for some reason a bunch of people come over to her and just stare, so scarecrow activates once again. They finally come across a theater troupe, that’ll get Hinako going. A friend of Mayu and landlord of the apartment, Chiaki is among the theater troupe. She’s got a really nice butt, that is all, back to the anime! Even Hinako’s got the hots for her. Chiaki reveals the club isn’t dead, but on hiatus as their advisor is gone. She suggests Hinako start a troupe with the girls at the apartment. Let the insanity ensue!

THE GOOD

  • The randomness and cuteness mixture is on full display here
  • We’ve got some real cute girls in this show, Chiaki the top one thus far

THE BAD

  • Even I have to admit this show can get a little overbearing and off the beaten path at times, there’s literally almost no focus to the show

Episode Score: 3.5/5

KADO: The Right Answer (Ep.0)

SYNOPSIS

We kick things off in an intelligence bureau in Tokyo where Shun and Kojiro are on the move to deal with negotiations to purchase land for some sort of hall. They both think something’s a little weird about this and Kojiro has taken a liking to the factory they’re buying out for the construction of this hall. They go drinking afterwards and others join. They guy wanting this building constructed is usually a do-nothing sort of guy and this plan has been 20 years in development, so why’s he suddenly pushing for this? Kojiro takes the drunken Shun home and starts researching on the technology the factory has been working on. Kojiro has something going on with him, he’s constantly making paper animals. Meeting with another man, Kojiro asks him to set up meeting with a Science Council member, likely for his interests in this tech. The man then shows Kojiro an offer to be a cabinet consultant, but his mind is already on the next position he’s getting in Foreign Affairs. He then does meet with a man of scientific knowledge and gets him on board to help out the factory quite possibly make a breakthrough in tech. So he’s taking the risk and thinks it can be done in a month. A month later, zero results, so the cabinet member wants to go himself. Upon arrival, it appears they have finished it successfully. The estimate market for this breakthrough is 100 billion yen, at least a billion dollars. Now at the airport, the two men are flying out somewhere and there’s a strange portal in the air, a giant cube appearing from it and engulfing the plane. THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED HERE?!!! 

THE GOOD

  • The first 18 minutes were interesting, very lighthearted
  • The last 2 minutes have me extremely interested in what the fuck just happened!!!

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about

Episode Score: 4/5

Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine (Ep. 1)

SYNOPSIS

So we’re all about a royal tutor and a bunch of young male princes. Yup, now I’m waiting for how many yaoi teases the show tries. Heine is the one chosen to tutor the king’s sons, in the event something happens to the one currently set to be the new king. Oh dear, even the guards are pretty boys, this is going to be a haven for people. Heine arrives and is stopped immediately, because he’s short as fuck and mistaken for a child. They’re shocked to learn he’s the royal tutor. Their mother arrives to bring him in and we learn they’ve gone through a lot of tutors very quickly. Upon meeting them, we see why, the tutors probably get arrested for immediately trying to bang all four of them. Oh wait, they’re just all crazy. Leonhard’s a prick, Licht is an over-the-top flirt, Bruno’s the prim and proper intelligent one and Kai is the tough, quiet one. All four don’t want him around, so it’s clear why so many left, they were shunned and hated. So he just ignores them, but Leonhard insists they’ll fight. Licht leaves because he has a girl to fuck (probably), but is interested in an interview afterwards. Bruno just walks off, leaving Leo alone with Heine, who drags him to his room, much to his dismay. He asks him questions pertaining to why he hates him so much. Upon letting it slip that he hates certain vegetables, we see an adorably embarrassed prince after being called out for his childishness. He finally admits that he hates teachers because they don’t pay attention to him…and make him study. Even the word makes him try to run. During said run, a book falls and Leo really wants it back. It’s a personal diary. Leo tries to pass it off as someone else, but Heine immediately calls his bluff and starts reading out passages out the window until he’ll take the test. Hating every second of it, he does the test. It appears Leo has trouble socializing, appears to be quite shy when it counts. After leaving him, Leo wonders if maybe Heine’s not so bad, after all he didn’t laugh at his dairy entries. A maid returns with cake and a note from Heine, thanking him for the hard work. He’s cheating with cake, clever bastard. Bruno is up next week. 

I really like this show, despite it’s clear male-dominant BL nature. It’s very silly, over-the-top, yet well grounded. Hopefully this’ll last all season at the same pace.

THE GOOD

  • Heine is a very cleverly written character
  • The boys are all quite interesting, Leo and Licht the obvious standouts
  • The facial expressions and silly movements are so perfect

THE BAD

  • Nothing to report this week, loved this first episode!

Episode Score: 4.5/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Renai Boukun (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

So it seems a shinigami is trying to convince a boy to kiss someone or else he’ll die. Huh, now that’s something. Seiji has a Kiss Note, a book like the Death Note, but if you don’t kiss someone in 24 hours, you’ll die…huh? The girl dies, not him? She forces him to help her out, so he kisses her…except that doesn’t work that way. By writing two names together, they will kiss within 24 hours, but because she wrote him name accidentally, he now has to kiss someone in 24 hours or she’ll die AND HE’S A VIRGIN FOREVER!!! So now it’s time to try and find someone for him to kiss. He’s got Akane, a big-breasted girl on him mind. Guri apparently isn’t invisible and causes Akane to overhear the two kissed and now she’s pissed off and intends to kill him, or instead tries to kill Guri, but she can’t be killed normally. Y’know, normal circumstances. Oh and her shorts are pulled down the entire time this is happening. Akane is beyond psychotic…she’s awesome! She loves Seiji so much, she’ll kill anyone for him. Ah, a yandere, how I’ve not had one to watch for a long time. Somehow in the commotion, they kiss, Guri finishing the pairing in the book. She declares that anyone paired together get married eventually. Then Guri transforms Sailor Moon-style into an angel.

Try to keep up, folks.

She’s a cupid of sorts, but then Guri writes her name in their pairing as well, because she’s into him now too, mostly because she’s a shit angel and wants to learn more about that feeling. Akane tries to kill him, but by being paired with Guri, he’s immortal too. Now living at his house with him, she’s got a device brainwashing his folks to believe they’re lovers, thus they must live together. WHAT THE FUCK?! IS THAT A CAT WITH A HUMAN FACE?!!! Yes it is and it’s name is Coraly, a supervisor angel borrowing the family cat. Back at school, Akane resumes stabbing him (out of love) and another girl seems interested in him now. Coraly explains the two humans are now technically angels and thus have to work, now connected to Guri. If she fails, they’ll die and go to Hell. Seiji is level-headed with writing couples in the book, so Coraly thinks he’ll get Guri out of her BL ways, at least it no longer being the only thing she does. That girl from earlier falls down the stairs into his arms, upset at him still (they didn’t kiss) because she thinks he’s cheating on Akane. She steals the notebook and Guri ate too much candy, so it’s him alone going after her. She clearly wrote something in it and the two fall off the rooftop. Akane sees this thinking there’s now another girl involved, but she can’t kill her either, a barrier around her. She’s been trying to write her name in the book, but can’t because she isn’t an angel. Yuzu’s her name and Akane tries once more, though Seiji stops her by simply calling her by her first name. Oh…Yuzu wants Akane…oh my! WAIT, THEY’RE SISTERS?!!! 

Again, keep the fuck up with me! XD

She’s upset because she thinks Akane is being drawn in by the book, but nope Akane’s just crazy…in love with him. So Guri just writes her name with them, now a foursome. So they have to kiss…but she trips and gets Seiji instead. Now Akane has to kill her sister over and over again. 

Holy fuck this show is amazing/really hard to summarize!!!

THE GOOD

  • What can’t I say? The comedy is so random and perfect, I can’t get enough of it!
  • It’s like Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, but even funnier and then mixed with a crazy ecchi comedy!

THE BAD

  • Nothing I can possibly say that’s negative about that first episode, my sides hurt though…maybe that counts?

Episode Score: 5/5

Sakura Quest (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

A girl believes that maybe, just maybe she remembers being royalty? She’s applying for a job and is constantly failing to find one. She’s a country girl trying to make it in the big city, but not having a good time getting there. It’s to the point she’s struggling, pretty much no money. Then she gets a call from a model agency she worked for once with a job offer from a client requesting her. She’s heading to Manoyama, as a “Queen” for a tourism board. Along the way, she bumps into a really hot tomboy looking girl. Upon her arrival, she finds out the name was mixed up…with a woman who died 8 years ago! Yoshino eventually steps in, still offering her help and they accept. She starts meeting people officially, Shiori the girl helping her out earlier. Kadota is the grumpy old head of the board, Yamada and Mino two of the other boys. It appears Manoyama is a farm town in desperate need of people coming in. The Kingdom of Chupakabura was apparently formed years ago as a mini independent state that for whatever reason brought tourist attention. The boom ended however and the money well dried up. It seems like a show of sorts, which may explain Yoshino’s memory of being “crowned”. Later in the night, the two girls talk about things, Yoshino admitting she’s not crazy excited yet, being back in the country again. The log cabin she’s staying in though is gorgeous! There’s also another girl here, that tomboy from earlier. She’s the “manager” of the building, least she claims. She also tells Yoshino she’s stuck there for a year…a fact no one seemed to mention to her until now. Her hands are tied now, signed on the dotted line. She tries to run away, but the buses are done for the night and a pretty boy with a ukelele and speaking in riddles convinces her to get off…by being weird. She then finds the Chupakabura which is totally fake, but she’s dumb and runs until Shiori fakes being in danger. Annoyed, she just clocks Kadota who’s in the costume. Apologetic, his wife admits he’s going about revitalizing the town the wrong way, but asks her to at least stay the night before she runs home. Shiori drives her back to the dorm where she leaves Yoshino feeling like for the first time in a while being wanted. Oh, but the dorm’s locked so she goes to her kingdom until morning. It’s upon looking around there she finds an old picture of her being crowned, she was their 100,000th guest. So now her curiosity is piqued a little bit.

It’s close to being on notice after one week, but I want to see what the show really comes up with, there’s definitely some intrigue here. So we’ll see next week the direction I go.

THE GOOD

  • I love the animation style here
  • The girls…are freaking gorgeous, all of them!

THE BAD

  • The first episode was a little boring and really light on the comedy, I wanted more

Episode Score: 3.5/5

Episode Score: N/A ***DROPPED***


Tsugumomo (Ep.1)

SYNOPSIS

Kazuya’s your average dumbass boy in high school who “accidentally” gropes girls when waking up from bad dreams. He’s also weird and keeps his dead mother’s obi around him and sniffs it, because it “comforts” him. I’m already not liking the main character. Then he’s attacked by a wig. The obi transforms to protect him, a girl sealed inside. She gets upset when he doesn’t remember her and kicks his ass too, along with the wig and the girl it’s possessed.

The anime’s having a real shit start, but trying really hard to make me like it by having Naomi Oozora who voiced Satania last season in Gabriel Dropout as Kiriha, the blue-haired girl helping Kazuya.

She claims Kazuya as her underling before dealing with the wig-possessed girl. The wig apparently possessed the girl due to her feelings for Kazuya. Oh, it’s a crossdressing boy, oh dear. Kazuya returns home, confused by what happened. He has another nightmare, but finds the girl sleeping in his bed. She’s pissed after being suplexed off his bed when the older sister comes to investigate. She gives him his first task as her servant…buying him sweets. Even worse, when he returns from dinner, he finds his room a mess and she’s in the bath, because of course she is. But she doesn’t freak out, just wants her back scrubbed. There’s also dick talk. Yup. It’s officially bed time afterwards and she insists on sleeping together. Because of his idiotic obsession of his mother’s obi, keeping it around when bathed and slept, she feels like it’s perfectly normal for her to sleep and bathe with him. Maybe it’s something more, who knows.

The problem is I have zero desire to watch further. The show is just ecchi cliches, the setting of youkai fighting each other really doesn’t do much for me and honestly, I feel really weird seeing a girl that sounds like Satania in an overly-sexualized role. I’m not caring much about this show and on top of that it just feels weird.

THE GOOD

  • Hearing Satania’s voice again made me reminisce last season
  • The ecchi was relatively good in the bath scene and props for not half-assing it and hiding Kazuya’s nudity

THE BAD

  • Nothing’s all that interesting plot-wise
  • The jokes are all overdone cliches, even the randomness of it comes off forced

Episode Score: 2.5/5 ***DROPPED***
