Week # 5 – Spring Anime 2018

Week # 5 has arrived with the 2018 spring 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!!!***


Amanchu! Advance (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

Well other than the identity of the Jet-Black Mermaid (which was fucking retarded!), the episode was pretty good. Futaba’s still improving, hits a wall for a moment, doubts herself initially, but gets back up again and resumes her progress. We also get to meet Hikari’s younger sister, who I feel oh so sorry for. This episode was one of the more diving intensive episode, which can be a pro or a con, depending on things. It’s a mixed bag for me this time around, as there was some good shots and moments, but it also dragged a little bit as well. Still can’t complain all that much though.

THE GOOD

  • Futaba continuing her progress
  • More new characters with Hikari’s sister getting involved

THE BAD

  • Diving scenes dragged a tiny bit

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Butlers X Battlers (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

T’was a decent episode. The over-the-top butler battle was fun to watch, seeing Hotaru get all pissy cause the Headmaster has the hots for sister was fun, all in all it was a good episode. That blonde bitch was a bit irritating, but hey, you gotta have someone to get pissed off at eventually, right? As for the plot, it seems we’re starting to get some real progress here, as J’s bracelet appears to reveal a code to something. Now the question becomes what’s next and in fact, are we eventually going to see a villain of sorts, or is this the status quo all the way through?

THE GOOD

  • Butler battle was quite entertaining

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about

Episode Score: 4/5


Comic Girls (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

And once again, when the season continues to get bleaker and bleaker, this show comes out and just blows me away. Yes, the first half was basically a swimsuit episode, but man was I surprised with that second half. Given the show’s subject matter, I wasn’t expecting a yuri relationship to appear like this, but given how things have worked out so far, it makes perfect sense for Koyume and Tsubasa to have interest in each other. The real question is, does Tsubasa have those same feelings or is it more of a sisterly relationship she sees with Koyume? Either way, I’m glad to see the show take a chance at developing a relationship that’s more than just friends and/or colleagues.

And because I do this every swimsuit episode, drum roll please! …Oh right, blog post, no sound effects. Ahem! The winner of this week’s swimsuit episode is…TSUBASA!!! I mean come on, stripes and that flat stomach. She was perfect. Koyume is second, losing out the top spot because I’m not so big on frills, Ruki is third, not because of her flat chest mind you, her bikini was just very bland. And I’d say Kaos gets fourth, but she’s disqualified due to being too adorable to actually constitute as a competitor.

THE GOOD

  • Swimsuit episode
  • VERY interesting relationship forming with Koyume and Tsubasa

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about

Episode Score: 5/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Hinamatsuri (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

I can’t believe I’m saying this when so much of the episode was centered around Hitomi, but I think I’m going to have to put this show on notice. For a comedy, the jokes just aren’t hitting. Like ever. After the first couple episodes, it’s completely gone, like the well has dried up. Hina isn’t funny at all now, Anzu’s just annoying and Hitomi is just being put in the same situation again and again. Like unless I want to look at Utako for a couple minutes each episode, the amount of things this show is offering to me, it’s lessening every single episode.

THE GOOD

  • Hitomi did her absolute best to try and sell this episode

THE BAD

  • Every joke missed, nothing felt funny at all

Episode Score: 2/5 

Status: On Notice


Last Period: Owarinaki Rasen no Monogatari (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

I have to admit, this show really shows the idiocy of people who win the lottery and was really starting to piss me off as the episode continued on. People overspending, becoming the snobby folks they once hated. People just throwing money at the problem, or giving away money too generously, not realizing how fast that money will actually go. All of it was quite frustrating and the one that pissed me off the most was the line that basically translates to “What’s the point of having money if you’re not going to spend it?”. People like that are the most insane out there.

The other downside here is how am I supposed to like Liza or Gajeru after this episode. I was already halfway to Wiseman and now there’s literally zero reason to want anyone other than Wiseman to win. At least Haru has the sense to save his money and not be a fucking moron about it.

THE GOOD

  • Wiseman actually being good

THE BAD

  • I have zero reason to like Liza or Gajeru now

Episode Score: 3.5/5

 

 

 


Mahou Shoujo Ore (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

I don’t like meta episodes. They’re not funny.

THE GOOD

  • N/A

THE BAD

  • N/A

Episode Score: Blegh/5


Space Battleship Tiramisu (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

Subaru spends the entire episode eating rice and slowly taking off his clothes. What the fuck else do you want on this show?!

THE GOOD

  • Naked Subaru is best Subaru

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 


Tachibanakan Triangle (Ep.5) 

THOUGHTS

The same point has reached for this show as many others. I love this show, but I can’t profess how much I love it again and again, because there’s not a whole lot you can do with a 3-minute short here. Actually, this episode was pretty lacking, not to mention I found the entire premise meh, because I hate the fishnet-ridden outfit that Iori had on in this episode.

But yeah, show’s still awesome, but I think it’s time that it goes off the weekly, thus eliminating all the sub 5-minute shorts.

THE GOOD

  • Same good ol’ hijinks

THE BAD

  • Iori deserves better than that shit outfit

Episode Score: 3/5

Status: Watching on own time
