Week # 6 – Summer Anime 2018

Week # 6 has arrived with the 2018 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!!!***


Angels of Death (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

Well, she’s finally gone. Though apparently so is Zack, via his own self-inflicted wound. What a confusing episode, there’s a lot of explaining that needs to be done now. Rachel was carrying a loaded gun the entire time, so we’ll be getting some crazy backstory at some point, Zack in his drug-induced rage somehow (and for some reason) turns the scythe on himself and thus brings masochist bitch out of hiding and in the end, ends up dying. I don’t think this was a plan either, so it really begs the question as to what the fuck possessed both Zack and Rachel to take the steps they did. I’m just waiting for the supernatural shit to happen now with Zack, cause he can’t be dead yet either, right?

THE GOOD

  • Finally ending the Cathy arc
  • Rachel has some intrigue to her now

THE BAD

  • I’m so bloody confused…

Episode Score: 3/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Cells at Work! (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

A good episode this week, though a little too much time awarded to the kiddy cells part of the episode. I loathe anime where there’s a lot of crying, so this episode really started to annoy me after a while with little RBC growing up. It was still fun, but had its real irritating moments. The second half on the other hand offers an interesting episode next week, where it appears we’re actually dealing with cancer cells. Not to mention of course another female cell in my body that I’m apparently sexually attracted to now. What is it now? Four? Five?

THE GOOD

  • Really liked the NK Cell
  • Intrigue going into next week, something this show hasn’t done yet

THE BAD

  • A little too much crying on little RBC’s bit

Episode Score: 3/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Chio’s School Road (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

Fun, but quite uncomfortable. Madoka was, uh…yeah…I mean don’t get me wrong, it’s funny that she’s BEYOND overly aggressive with other girls, but they held onto it a little too long and to mention the old, homeless guy that got arrested for molesting girls too. Yeah, that might’ve crossed the line a little. There were still funny moments though. The second half however, kinda crap.

THE GOOD

  • Some funny exchanges in the first half

THE BAD

  • Very uncomfortable moments with Madoka and the old molestor
  • Crap second half

Episode Score: 2.5/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Harukana Receive (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

A fair ending to the match. As expected, Kanata was just tiring her opponents out and thus they made their comeback and won in straight sets. I think I would’ve preferred though for the two to end up winning in a third set, thus giving the other girls a little more to hang their hats on. Either way, they never progressed further and it appears the push for the second half of the season is getting the girls to qualify for nationals along with Emily and Claire.

How much you wanna bet it means having to beat Narumi and Ayasa?

THE GOOD

  • Decent ending to the match
  • Progression from both Haruka and Kanata
  • Claire. Just Claire. Holy shit!

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 


How Not to Summon a Demon Lord (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

Welp, magic sensing apparently has to be sexual, Shera’s brother wants to pump a baby in her and Jesus H. Fucking Christ this show just needs a hentai adaptation already, because it clearly wants to be just that. That last little bit with Rem and Shera…my god.

Other than that, yeah…crazy incest-desiring brother and a lot of sexual tension. That sure was an episode!

THE GOOD

  • Rem. My god…
  • Finally getting a villain

THE BAD

  • I need a headset at all times when watching this show now

Episode Score: 4/5

 

 

 

 

 

 


Island (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

I’m pretty much convinced at this point that everything we’ve been told up until this point and any other legends we hear as things go on, will just be that, legends, fairy tales, stories. With Rinne “remembering” that Setsuna is not actually the “real Setsuna”, all this does is make me think they’re pulling the Firewatch strategy here and making a giant mystery that actually leads to something completely unrelated to the entire mystery. I’m still waiting to hear about how soot blight syndrome isn’t actually a real thing, I personally figure her father died of a heart attack after the stress of him finding his very young daughter seemingly in the company of an older man, which…

Holy shit. I have a really dark theory now. There’s no way I’m right on this, I don’t think the show will turn that dark in the end, but hey, why not have fun in making up crazy theories? What if this Setsuna was actually a predator who brainwashed Rinne with all these crazy legends and such to keep her from running away from him and her father was just trying to save her after he realized what this man was doing? There’s so much else unanswered mind you, like Setsuna’s origins before waking up, Kuon’s past, not to mention why she looks so pissed off in those moments during this episode. There’s a lot still going on and we’ll just have to wait and see.

THE GOOD

  • Continuation of my curiosity with this whole mystery
  • Sara bluntly asking sex-related questions

THE BAD

  • Kind of random how they just reveal Setsuna isn’t the real one

Episode Score: 3.5/5

 

 

 


Overlord III (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

A better episode, though I think next week will be more when things start to turn around more, as we get back into the fold with Ainz and company again. It was nice to see Enri and Nphi confess to each other, they were very smart in how they handled the troll alone, but I will admit that I didn’t like how the show basically glossed over the goblins killing that undead troll, we were just left to assume they won handily after being so threatened moments before. But yeah, can’t really say much more, as I’m waiting to see how these two get brought into the full plans of Nazarick.

THE GOOD

  • Better episode for Enri and Nphi

THE BAD

  • A little rushed through the fight, goblins won without us seeing the victory

Episode Score: 3/5

 

 

 


Yuuna and the Haunted Hot Springs (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

I think at this point I need to stop being so surprised with how much fun I’m having watching the show. All the characters are lively and fun to watch, the comedy is really good, the ecchi is top-notch and most importantly, no episode is falling flat or boring me. This week we get a way around the problem of Chisaki not being able to see Yuuna and that turned out to be a really cute and endearing episode, whereas on the flip side we got the absurdity and in some ways, downright stupidity of Nonka and her manga career in the second half. Both were very enjoyable skits, though if I had to pick one, Chisaki’s half was just a little more entertaining in the end, but both were fantastic.

THE GOOD

  • Both skits were top-notch
  • Chisaki continues to make a good case for a character that needs to be added to the inn

THE BAD

  • Nothing to complain about

Episode Score: 4.5/5
