Week # 10 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!!!***
- [05:10] Can’t have a shounen anime without rich snobs claiming to be the best at something.
- So he sucks at magic, but racing? He’s fine.
- I’m truly wondering if that debt is ever going to go away.
- I guess we’re finally getting Halloween Face aka Grimm next week. All right, a real fight!

- Zoned out again. This show’s really good at doing that.
- It feels almost sacrilege seeing Kaede sans panda pajamas, doesn’t it?
- So basically the two of them simultaneously wanted to be the other out of jealous or envy? That’s…convenient.
- I feel like them transforming literally hours after the ultimate “fuck you” moment in Mai being the one to get Nodoka’s mom to smile, it was a bit of an early switch flip. Should’ve gone one more episode, I think.
- The sound when they transformed back to their proper selves was kinda gross.
- Well shit, looks like Japan TMZ found Mai’s boyfriend.

- Zoned out again.
- I’m unsure whether the orcs being named and turning half-human is a good or a bad change to their look. Though I will admit, Benimaru looks pretty damn sexy now…
- The Lizardmen all look fine except for that one girl. The hell were they trying to draw here?!
- I’m curious if the named Lizardman is potentially a human soul. They certainly gave time to his inner thoughts and he has a pretty distinct personality.

- It continues to annoy me that such a funny show has to run a dead parent angle as well. Seeing the depression on Yasuhiro really isn’t fun.
- She sure is a dumb kid at times, eh? Doesn’t help when Yasuhiro spoils her like he does.
- [18:09] WHY IS SHE MONOLOGUING TO THE BEAR?!!!
