Week # 11 – Fall Anime 2018



Week # 11 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!!!***


Radiant (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

  • Zoned out, that’s a first for this show!
  • They’re finally going out and doing quests, which means we’re finally seeing some arcs forming. Grimm being the first to really have a mystique about them.
  • I’m shocked during all this, pissed off Melie didn’t come out, especially when Mister Boobrie was smacking the shit out of her.

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 4/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 4/5 | Action – 4/5

OVERALL SCORE: A (88%)


Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

  • The progress with Sakuta and Mai’s relationship is super adorable. They’re such a good couple.Kaede’s finally making progress! That line though, “whoever marries Big Brother will get Kaede too.”, that’s hilarious. Cause y’know there’s weebs who would go gay just for a shot at Kaede.
  • [14:10] Are those markings on Kaede new, or the old ones resurfacing?
  • [21:10] I don’t remember if I have all year, but if that’s the case, this is the first time I’ve near-cried all year. Why did something so trivial work here? Because they played the scenario for 11 episodes and made every character important, lovable and gave enough rope for us to attach ourselves to and become a part of it.
  • However, our journey with her isn’t over. An old classmate appears and Kaede doesn’t remember her. That’s when Sakuta tells us that along with all the horrible markings Kaede got, it’s very likely her version of Puberty Syndrome erased her memories of those years, because they were so hard on her.

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 5/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 4/5 | Drama – 5/5 | +1 for making me nearly cry

OVERALL SCORE: A+ (100%)


That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

  • Naturally two girls have to fight over a slime who transforms into a genderless (though feminine) human. And of course one of them is bad at cooking.
  • I’m loving Gabiru way too much.
  • Gobta can now go Super Saiyan so he doesn’t have to eat Shion’s cooking.
  • So it appears that at least for now, the goal is to kill the Orc Lord. I imagine with us only being at the halfway point, this won’t be the rest of the series, rather a stepping stone to the Demon Lord that affected Shizu.

OVERALL SCORE: A (88%)


UzaMaid! (Ep.11)

THOUGHTS

  • That’s not fair, showing Misha and her mother together. They’re so cute that it once again makes me hate the dead parent trope.
  • I actually enjoyed Yui this episode. They relaxed a little bit on her annoying shenanigans.
  • So was Misha legit going to throw her two friends aside because they accidentally went in her mother’s room? Sensing that, Tsubame took the hit for them? Real talk, why didn’t Misha get some therapy after her mom passed? It’s not like they couldn’t afford it.

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


Radiant (Ep.10)

THOUGHTS

  • [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!

OVERALL SCORE: B (76%)


Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.10)

THOUGHTS

  • 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.

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 4/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – N/A | Drama – 5/5

OVERALL SCORE: A+ (95%)


That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.10)

THOUGHTS

  • 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.

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 4/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 4/5 | Action – N/A

OVERALL SCORE: A+ (90%)


UzaMaid! (Ep.10)

THOUGHTS

  • 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?!!!

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


Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

  • There’s no doubt this silver-haired boy talking to them is dead. He did say “It’s been so long since I’ve talked to someone.” after all.
  • I’m getting mad 18if vibes from this episode. Granted, I don’t think the overwhelming darkness of that show will be present here.
  • I’m not getting the symbolism, nor the message the show’s trying to deliver here…

Interest – 3/5 | Writing – 1/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 1/5 | Cuteness – 4/5

OVERALL SCORE: D (56%) 


My Sister, My Writer (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

  • [1:12] Hahahahaha! She thought he legit loved her!
  • Ah, the cliche “Bitch rival challenges newcomer to competition where if newcomer loses, they give up” situation. Gee, I wonder how it’ll end? Of course Suzuka will lose and the show will end four episodes early.
  • [13:01] …Suzuka is going to be really, REALLY fucked up when she finally has her first time…whether it’s with Yuu or not.
  • Admittedly, the show’s getting to a point where it’s dragging along. It has good days and this day was okay, but the second half just plain ol’ sucked. The entire school festival was just awful.
  • I know it’s only four episodes to go, but the show really needs to be careful, I’ve got a history dropping shows just before the end out of sheer frustration.

Radiant (Ep.7)

THOUGHTS

  • Poor Doc. The tentacles claim another victim.
  • Melba got coffee right too soon, I think.
  • I enjoy pissed off Melie waaaaaaaaay too much.
  • OH MY GOD THE SQUID IS THEIR FRIEND, HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Interest – 4/5 | Writing – 4/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 4/5 | Action – 3/5

OVERALL SCORE: A- (80%)


Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.7)

THOUGHTS

  • With Shoko still being a 7th grader and not aging the same as Sakuta, I’m learning now not to get too guessy with these plotlines, because they’re so hard to figure out. For now, we’ll just see what happens.
  • THE HELL?! TWO FUTABAS?!!!
  • So are Futaba and Shoko potentially experiencing the same phenomena? Just Shoko has a younger version?
  • [21:38] Why did Kaede just freak out because of a phone ring?
  • I’m not sure what’s going on just yet, but one could assume it’s just Futaba’s manifestation of what she thinks Kunimi would be attracted to, for him to want to go out with her. As for Shoko, I have no idea yet. They haven’t shown their hand at all with her.

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 5/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 3/5 | Drama – 3/5

OVERALL SCORE: A- (84%)


That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.7)

THOUGHTS

  • [05:35] WHAT THE FUCK, DUDE!!! THEY JUST HAD SHIZU KILL A CHILD!!! I don’t care Leon made her do it, that’s fucking not cool!
  • Once again, can we stop it with anime playing a more casual, funny game for a period of time AND THE SUDDENLY GETTING SUPER VIOLENT AND EDGY?!!!
  • I do not care if this is supposed to push the villain at us, they could’ve done it without murdering that child. Perhaps Pizu, the monster, but the child? Absolutely uncalled for.
  • -1 point for unnecessary child murder. And an extra -1 point for doing this 7 episodes into a show that has basically been absolutely positive and happy until now.
  • I love how Rimuru is extra pissed cause all the buildings got burned just after all the work they did.
  • As expected, even Ifrit isn’t much of a challenge. To be fair, he’s usually one of the first Final Fantasy summons. He can’t be THAT powerful, right?
  • So with Ifrit imprisoned, would this mean that Shizu is no longer under its control? Does she even have the ability to fight anymore, especially with her fire attacks?

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 3/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 2/5 | Action – 5/5 | -2 points

OVERALL SCORE: B- (72%)


UzaMaid! (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

  • You know I’m enjoying myself when I watched the entire episode without writing anything.
  • Midori and Tsubame really are gelling so well together.
  • I’m also really happy that I still get to see short-haired Midori as well, she’s so damn pretty.

Week # 6 – Fall 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’!

NOTE: You’re going to notice a few timestamps in my notes. These are just specific moments in episodes where I think of something that I feel is important. I don’t know how often I’ll put these stamps down, or even if I’ll keep doing them. But this is just so you guys know where my head’s at during a specific moment, like if I’m calling something before it happens, right or wrong.

Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

  • [0:30] I’m already really sad because I’m now aware the fairies are gone for good.
  • This new girl is extremely fucking annoying right now.
  • [21:45] I went through this entire episode with nothing to say. It was pretty damn boring.

Interest – 3/5 | Writing – 1/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 1/5 | Cuteness – 5/5

OVERALL SCORE: C- (60%) 


My Sister, My Writer (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

  • Standard beach episode stuff, y’know, sunscreen, walking in on showers afterwards, all that jazz. I know it’s intentional, but man it’s way too cliche.
  • Mai actually stepped it up a notch this week. Her swimsuit still sucked, but that moment with her at night in just a long shirt? Damn…
  • Also, Ahegao wins swimsuit contest #2. She’s the only one you’d consider to be “hot” that time.
  • Really? A writer never thought to “become” the character before?

Radiant (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

  • [4:49] No reason to show a mark on her leg, eh? Can’t have anything to do with her curse or anything…
  • Of course Melba’s puppet is her father. Why wouldn’t it be?!
  • Naturally it makes sense that they need pissed off Melie to teach Seth.
  • Well, Yaga’s gonna be Alma 2.0 for Seth. How many whacks to the head per episodes will he give, I wonder?
  • [21:54] I can’t help but see a tiny hint of romantic interest from Melie…

Interest – 4/5 | Writing – 3/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 3/5 | Action – N/A

OVERALL SCORE: B (75%)


Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

  • [6:15] I’m pre-calling it now, since seeing the TV with the date again, the time loop is about to begin again, once the two “break up”.
  • YUP! There it is.
  • I don’t think Tomoe’s lying, she’s acting perfectly in sync. Even a great actor can’t do that.
  • Oh she is lying? How could she possibly re-enact everything to a tee? I mean, I’m not shocked that she in the end fell for him, but still, I’m hard-pressed to think both could act so well.
  • Tomoe really hit me hard there at the end, crying because she knew she couldn’t win against Mai. Give the writers credit for pulling this arc off, because it wouldn’t have worked at an emotional level for me if Tomoe wasn’t so easy to like. If she was a bit of a brat, I’d only be happy that her arc is ending. Instead, this arc ends perfectly with me feeling extremely sorry for her.
  • I DID NOT EXPECT THEM TO GO BACK ALL THE WAY TO THE BEGINNING!!!
  • -1 point for the inability for me to believe both Tomoe and Sakuta could repeat lines verbatim and act perfectly in sync to days gone by beforehand. NOTE: This would’ve been an A+ episode had I not been so annoyed with this. A real shame, because the writing of this arc was so damn good.
  • Even weirder, every day repeated the same way after that, just without the lie with Tomoe.
  • Is there something about this Shoko girl? If we saw her already, I’ve forgotten.
  • *Google searches…* OHHHHHHHHHHH!!! HIS FIRST CRUSH!!! I FORGOT ABOUT THAT!!!

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.6)

THOUGHTS

  • Well! It looks like I found a potential waifu this season in Shizu!
  • I hope those other three adventurers aren’t ones we see too often. They’re quite annoying.
  • Unsurprisingly, Shizu’s from Japan as well, but a Summon rather than a Reincarnation. And she appears to be from either World War 1 or 2. I want to assume WW1 based on the buildings, but who knows.
  • Why do I get the feeling she’ll be forced to fight Rimuru towards the end of the season? SHE BETTER NOT DIE OR SACRIFICE HERSELF!!!

THOUGHTS

  • Oh no…Tsubame has a friend. Oh?! She wants Tsubame and not Misha? Go on…
  • Oh great, she’s a masochist too. Good lord this show is going to be even more fun.
  • [11:55] I’m fucking dying!
  • She is so fucked up too, my god those two together…
  • Y’know, I really, REALLY like how she looks with short hair. She’s still royally fucked up though.

Week # 5 – Fall Anime 2018

Week # 5 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!!!***


Between the Sky and Sea (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

  • This is getting really dumb. Maiko literally refuses to participate in training because she can’t bear to wear the swimsuit. And Makoto apparently can’t hold her breath long. Yet she survived that training drill?!
  • Ohhh…childhood trauma when she nearly drowned one time. THEN WHY IS SHE TRYING TO BE A SPACE FISHER?!!!
  • Ugh…the sexist bullshit again. This episode is trying really hard to make me want to drop it without a warning.
  • More sexism. Makoto wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a swordsmith, but women can’t according to him.
  • This has been a terrible first half. This show has less than 10 minutes to recover, or it’s gone.
  • I think I’m so annoyed that I’m cherry picking everything now. Like Ruby constantly calling things “fuper sun”.
  • It’s really obviously that swordsmith store was a picture they put into a Photoshop filter. That was not drawn.
  • WHY IS THE TRAINING CENTER NOT BUILT IN CASE THE WATER RISES LIKE THAT?!!!
  • …Okay, they actually fooled me with Rika being a trap.
  • But it’s not enough. The frustration these past few episodes have done, it’s not acceptable. The really terrible “conflicts”, the forced fights between Namino and everyone, the terrible Ruby puns, it’s all adding up and no amount of Makoto bathing is going to solve it. Originally I was going to put this show on notice first, but two terrible episodes in a row and only adding more problems onto the list of things I didn’t like already, it’s just too much. I like the voice acting a lot (except Ruby), but man this show is so full of holes that swiss cheese doesn’t look that bad.

Interest – 2/5 | Writing – 1/5 | Design – 3/5 | Comedy – 1/5 | Ecchi – 5/5 (only because of Makoto)

OVERALL SCORE: F (48%) ***DROPPED***

 

 

 


Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • The “spell with deep love” stuff is boring and overdone.
  • Even the spiders are adorable…
  • So are we to assume that black-haired banished fairy is the Princess’ father?
  • I’m really sad that this is likely the last time we see these characters. C’mon, at least bring Meneraiah along!

Interest – 4/5 | Writing – 4/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 4/5 | Cuteness – 5/5

My Sister, My Writer (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • The new girl, the voice actress. She adds nothing except being crazy too.
  • Mai’s suspicious. Of course she is, all it takes is usage of 1% of your brain to figure out something’s amiss.
  • The swimsuit contest went terribly. Mai wins basically because Suzuka looked meh, Sakura looked like trash and Ahegao didn’t even fucking try.
  • The longer this show goes, the more I wonder how much longer until Suzuka just loses it and jumps into his bed at night.

THOUGHTS

  • So the Macho Man Randy Savage finally exists in anime form, eh?
  • The hell is with the crazy debt from the start? Am I playing Animal Crossing again?!
  • Okay seriously, what the fuck is with all this money costing shit?
  • Oh. So they have massive political and military standing. That works.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

  • I’m finding it ironic that the girl who Sakuta ended up kicking the butt of, the show is clearly showing us she has a really nice butt.
  • Tomoe is really frustrating. The whole “I need to be fully involved at all times so no one hates me” kind of girl is really irritating.
  • I’m shocked Sakuta could fight that jock.
  • Is it any surprise Tomoe is falling for Sakuta now? There isn’t enough heavy drama obviously, so now we need potential love triangles and ideas of cheating! *sarcasm*

Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

  • Just a quick thought here. I’m going to take this off the weekly list, not because it’s bad, in fact I still really like the show. But like a lot of shorts, I’m running out of things to say with the show and there really wasn’t anything this week that I felt I needed to splurge about. So to post this show every week with just a score, I dunno it just looks lazy, so I’d rather just tell you to WATCH IT and not make it seem like I’m just flippantly putting up a score, as if I don’t care about the show.
  • But seriously, watch it if you haven’t already. It’s like Japanese Adult Swim material. It’s awesome!

Interest – 3/5 | Writing – 3/5 | Design – 3/5 | Comedy – 3/5 | TBD

OVERALL SCORE: C- (60%) ***DROPPED (BUT IT’S STILL GOOD!)***


That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.5)

THOUGHTS

  • Well Vesta’s clearly a villain, there’s nothing redeeming about him when it comes to his ridiculous grudge against Kaijin.
  • In the end, Vesta loses everything, as he should have. Despite his acknowledgment, there’s no forgiveness.
  • Kaijin and company are exiled, so they will join Rimuru back to the Goblin Village. Shame, no more Elves for them.
  • Or not, as the King is sending what looks like a sexy as fuck Elven assassin to follow them all. He compares Rimuru to Veldora. If only he knew…

UzaMaid! (Ep.5)

  • This Yui girl is annoying as fuck.
  • Of course this show has an old pervert get arrested.
  • Not gonna lie, this sports day skit is really, REALLY dumb.
  • Turns out this show can have a bad episode.

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


Between the Sky and Sea (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • I actually agree with Namino for once. Ruby is fucking irritating as all hell.
  • Okay, Namino being a real bitch is kinda starting to get old.
  • The fact this entire episode was made solely because Ruby doesn’t like fish…that’s a real waste of an episode.
  • Beach episode with lack of swimsuit variety. -1 point.
  • I’m gonna be completely honest here. Three episodes in, I was excited. This episode? Really annoyed and bored. Show’s in real danger now with me if it doesn’t start just having fun again. Not on notice yet, it’s earned an extra chance after a good start, but man do they have a hill to climb now.

Frankenstein Family (Ep.4) *On Notice*

THOUGHTS

  • The episode just…ends. What the fuck?
  • Everything was okay at best, I had an interest in what they might find in the lab, but now with the addition of a completely random stoppage to the episode, there’s no saving this show. It needed a great episode and was barely able to concoct an okay one.

Interest – 3/5 | Writing – 2/5 | Design – 4/5 | Comedy – 1/5 | TBD | -1 point for random ending

OVERALL SCORE: F (45%) ***DROPPED***


Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • I’m in love with the purple-haired fairy.
  • I’m pretty sure the princess is same voice as Umaru. A brat through and through.
  • Let’s go beyond that, I’m pretty much okay with banging any of these (of age) fairies.
  • Episode ended abruptly. -1 point

My Sister, My Writer (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • Don’t have a lot to say with this episode, was pretty average.
  • Other than Mai and Ahegao trading “I’m sexier than you!” poses in costumes, most of this episode was pretty forgettable. A loooooot of talking.

Radiant (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • Melie’s a glorious idiot, Doc’s just a loud idiot. Y’know, like Seth.
  • Oh? She has a second personality? I love it.
  • I’m not sure how well the three will mesh together yet, but I’m certainly interested.
  • Not to mention, them already having foils we will likely see for some time is great progress.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • The interactions between the two are getting better and better.
  • Oh dear, now we’re in a time paradox.
  • Ass kick girl is back with her own problem. Naturally it affects Sakuta and not Mai (well…least not until Tomoe falls on top of him).
  • These situations are becoming very complicated now that time is being used as well.

Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • My girlfriend was dying watching this show, she works in customer service, so she 100% identifies with the ridiculousness and bullshit pushed upon workers to be overly upbeat and smiling so hard their jaw hurts.
  • Me? It was all right, nothing too special. Also there was basically no second act, so nothing complimented the first act.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • I just finally noticed this show is 24 episodes, not the traditional 12. Really happy about that, because this show so far has been well-paced and really could use more time.
  • I continue to enjoy how Rimuru has no idea just how strong he is and ends up scaring the shit (this time literally) out of everyone.
  • ELVES!!!

UzaMaid! (Ep.4)

THOUGHTS

  • Hahahaha, she adopted three of the hamsters as well. They’ll make “fine” guards.
  • The play date actually went better than I expected it would.

Week # 3 – Fall Anime 2018

Week # 3 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!!!***


Between the Sky and Sea (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • Pancakes are the way to the soul. Fact.
  • I don’t know if they’re intentionally trying to make me hate that one guy so much that I want to beat his face in with a frying pan…but it’s working.
  • I don’t like how they technically cheated/lucked into winning the challenge. They should’ve done what they were seemingly about to do, Haru using her silliness from earlier in the day as a way to distract and eventually catch the fish.
  • Ruby’s a terrible spy.

Frankenstein Family (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • The show is getting more and more boring.
  • The “racism” angle they’re taking is kind of irritating. Perhaps it has more to do with how I look at this show as a comical, light-hearted slice of life and I wasn’t expecting this much drama.
  • The show’s gotta step it up. I’m not getting nearly enough from it. Considering I like the post-credits segment with the voice actors better than the show itself, that’s a real problem.

Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • Gee this “male” mayor couldn’t totally be a girl with a voice like that. eh?
  • And this “male” mayor took offense to women being called weak?! What a strange coincidence!!
  • OHHHHHH?! THE “MALE” MAYOR TURNS TO BE A WOMAN?! NANI?!!!

My Sister, My Writer (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • To have someone even more fucked in the head, with Mai…the show’s only gonna get crazier.
  • Suzuka’s trying really hard to be #1, but Reika, the editor…she’s not even trying and she’s winning handily.
  • Poor Suzuka. Because of Ahegao’s doujins, now there’s a ton of other things she wants to do with Yuu and can’t.

Radiant (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • Y’know, it took me until this episode to notice that Alma lost an arm.
  • The hatred against sorcerers story is getting tiresome, they need to lighten up a bit on that narrative.
  • I’m impressed how they put together a meaningful 3-episode intro before Seth leaves for his own journey. Seeing both Seth and Alma in tears as they parted actually A, made sense and B, was pulled off perfectly.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • The idea of even Mai’s name being erased from his book in insane.
  • I’m admittedly really starting to like Rio.
  • I wonder if Mai took a chance having him remember one key piece of information on his midterm as a way to remember her, even when the syndrome takes effect after he falls asleep.
  • Poor bastard, goes from one rumour to a total embarrassing memory that everyone will remember.

Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • I’m literally being battered with the confusion stick with all the sales rep talk.
  • *insert French joke about the guy being so scary, but every joke about the French is about them being cowards*
  • The over-the-top shitty English and now French is killing me.
  • I’ve gotta say, this episode wasn’t the greatest, but I’m getting the sense that this will be a show that won’t take too much of my time, gets its shit in, and will either be okay or absolutely hysterical. This week? Not the latter, unfortunately.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • Just the idea of him healing all the goblins and spitting them out. So he healed them…but gave them all concussions. XD
  • Oh my god, that goblin girl is hot…I’ve almost forgotten about Goblin Slayer now.
  • I like how this show is running thus far. It’s very much like Log Horizon, in how they’re starting with basic essentials and working their way forward.
  • I also like how Rimuru isn’t even truly aware just how powerful he is.

Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc and the Alchemist Knight (Ep.3) *On Notice*

THOUGHTS

  • The reunion with Richemont was way too “OH HELLO THERE!!!”.
  • -1 point for almost-rape, because this show has to be edgy too!
  • I’m unbelievably disappointed with this show. The potential to be a really fun action-packed anime with sex appeal was an easy take for this show, given the cast of characters they have. But instead they fall victim of trying too hard to do two things at once. They want to be sexy and edgy. They don’t mix, folks. I don’t care what anyone says.
  • All they had to do was back off a bit on the “OMG, SO MUCH HORROR!!!” and this show would be fine. A great show? No, but passable for sure.

Zombieland Saga (Ep.3)

THOUGHTS

  • It’s been three episodes now. The format has not changed. The first 15 minutes suck and the last little bit is pretty fun.
  • Except this episode, the concert was plain, didn’t have any real funny moments and kind of just…was there.
  • If with each episode I feel more and more bored, what is really left? A bunch of cute girls? Any show can have that.
