Week #11 – Summer Anime 2017

Week #11 has arrived with this Summer anime season. What’s in store this week?!

Just like every week, I’ll be watching my selected shows for the season and giving my brief feelings on the episode, along with things I liked and things I didn’t like. So let’s get a’watchin’!

***WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW!!!***


18if (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

All right, here comes the convoluted mess, folks! I’m reserving judgment right now because I have an interest in where this goes, but man oh man I’m not sure how I feel about the sudden revelation that Earth is a giant dream world created by Eve, as in Adam and Eve.

Here’s the crazy information dump I’ve gathered from this episode:

  • The entire world is a dream by Eve
  • If she wakes up, the world therefore will be gone, thus everyone dies
  • Apparently this is one route, which has been caused due to her anger with Haruto “tampering” with the ten witches he’s saved thus far, minus the one who passed away of course
  • The other route has her waking up and saving the world, turning it into a full dream world where anything is possible

Now here’s assumptions I’m making:

  • Lily says the only way to stop everything is for Haruto to kill Eve, but I am suspect of that because that would be too easy, right? Who or what is Lily, really? Could she possibly be the devil tricking Haruto just like he/she did to Eve?
  • This guy who hates the Thorn church, I have my suspicions that he’s either Adam, trying to keep the world in balance, or the devil, trying to destroy it
  • Haruto could also be Adam, having lost all memories of himself or the dream world altering his memories. I don’t believe there’s any possibility of him being the devil

Either way, I’m intrigued and hopeful that the final two episodes don’t rub me the wrong way in the same manner that KADO did.

THE GOOD

  • Very intriguing reveal and thought-provoking mystery surrounding everything

THE BAD

  • Way too much filler with the ten witches being shown to us all over again
  • Reminding me about the third witch, I’m still upset

Episode Score: 3.5/5


Aho Girl (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

Look, I don’t even care that much about the Ruri part and not even the Yoshiko turning into a badass bitch and beating up the most hardcore punks in town, watching Dog go around and save everyone like the fucking badass he is, that was what sold me on this entire episode. What a freaking riot that was. Okay, Yoshiko going all fight school was fun too, BUT DOG!!!

…That is all.

THE GOOD

  • DOG!
  • Badassery over no bananas…

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about this week

Episode Score: 4.5/5

 

 

 


Centaur no Nayami (Ep.11) 

THOUGHTS

Not much to speak of here, a lot of sketches with the kids this week, nothing really of note either. A search for someone prettier than Manami, which is granted a very difficult task indeed, that was the fun section. What I didn’t need was 10 minutes of flower and shape studies, was extremely bored during this section. I felt like this week was me watching an episode of anime Teletubbies and that ain’t quite that interesting and ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS considering two weeks prior, we had a Holocaust episode.

THE GOOD

  • Lot of cuteness in the episode

THE BAD

  • Very boring first half with flowers and shapes being tossed around, I don’t watch anime as an educational tool

Episode Score: 2.5/5


Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

Oh my god, Francesca is basically Korone from Demon King Daimao, but even more of a pervert! So this episode was entirely set for the harem to reach limitless potential now, as we were revealed that Yumina offered Linze, Elze and Yae the chance to also be Touya’s brides, thus the harem lives on forever. None of them have accepted at this point, but because of Francesca’s “programming”, she kissed Touya for a genetic sample and that was enough to snap Linze and force her to play her own hand and be the first official loving kiss on Touya. I’m curious what Episode 12 for this show actually looks like, assuming it’s the final episode.

THE GOOD

  • Francesca is such a great character for stirring up shit
  • Leen and Yumina both calling out the girls on their harem-esque nature

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about this week

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Jikan no Shihaisha (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

Well the end is nigh and for two characters once again, their demise comes way to quick and way too easily. Blaze winning like he did was the one that really set me off, he basically got his shit pushed in the entire fight and then magically has a set up to win. At least Mina’s makes some sort of sense with her being a descendant of Chronos! Also side note, holy fucking shit Mina is scary when she’s angry. As for Kiri and Victor, I had a moment where I was unsure if Kiri was going to survive, but now with Victor seemingly getting over the past and understanding the present and future is far more important, he should be fine now. The villain is quite interesting I have to admit, I wish they’d spent far more time showcasing him.

THE GOOD

  • Mina is scary as fuck and it was enjoyable to watch
  • Main villain in very interesting

THE BAD

  • Side villains killed off way too easily

Episode Score: 3.5/5

 

 

 


New Game!! (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

Well despite so much getting better, the worst possible thing is happening during the final episode. Kou and her glorious pantsless-loving self will be leaving Eagle Jump to pursue a new venture. Now is it 100% set in stone? Of course not, they could always have her stick around, but as a realistic representation of the gaming industry, I feel it has to happen. Granted it needs to come with Rin finally confessing to Kou before it’s too late, otherwise I feel the payoff will not be what the majority of viewers want to see. The rest of the episode was fine, Nene and Tsubame sort of got along, Momiji and Aoba are not really changing much though. There’s nothing too special beyond the Kou revelation and nothing else really stood out either.

THE GOOD

  • Really heavy revelation in Kou leaving the company
  • Cute bits with Momiji playing the role of new Hifumi

THE BAD

  • Beyond the Kou revelation, there wasn’t anything else of note in the episode

Episode Score: 3.5/5
