Week # 9 – Fall Anime 2018

Week # 9 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!!!***


My Sister, My Writer (Ep.7)

THOUGHTS

  • It’s very obvious that with the problems the show is having, the quality is dropping even further. 
  • I think at this point too, I’m already drawn towards dropping the show, as the episodes have been getting worse and the stink around the show is prevalent.
  • As this episode comes to a close, nothing changed. Though I’m not sure there’s anything this show could’ve done to save itself. The content just isn’t there, the initial interest I had is gone now that they’ve shown they had nothing in their hand. Shame.

Interest – 1/5 | Writing – 1/5 | Design – 1/5 | Comedy – 1/5 | Ecchi – 2/5

OVERALL SCORE: F (24%) ***DROPPED***


Radiant (Ep.9)

THOUGHTS

  • It was nice to see how Dragunov isn’t a total villain and is actually pretty likable, especially compared to other Inquisitors.
  • See…now the next time they all face off again, I won’t know who to cheer for.
  • I know I didn’t write much, but I really enjoyed this episode.

OVERALL SCORE: A- (84%)


Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.9)

THOUGHTS

  • Completely zoned out of typing for this review.
  • I really identified with this episode. The whole “my sibling gets more praise than me” angle really hit hard with me.
  • The show keeps finding unique problems that I don’t expect. Mai disappearing, time not passing, two Futabas, now body switching. 
  • I wonder what’s in that cabinet…

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.9)

THOUGHTS

  • I got completely lost in the episode that I forgot to write anything here as it was happening.
  • We’re starting to see the extent of Rimuru’s power, yet I feel like we’re nowhere near serious Rimuru yet. I don’t think he’s even remotely tapped into Veldora’s power yet.
  • The scene where Rimuru was checking out his body double may be the funniest moment all season.
  • Based on the cover image, I imagine the ogres are the other key piece of the party with Rimuru. Basically the entire picture is Rimuru, Shizu, goblins and ogres.

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

OVERALL SCORE: A+ (92%)


UzaMaid! (Ep.9)

THOUGHTS

  • Well, we know Kumagoro values his life more than Misha’s, leaving her when that maid could strike.
  • ISN’T TSUBAME A GODDAMN JSDF SOLDIER?!!! I was sure she’d just find him instantly.
  • Ah, so it was Yui’s sister that took him.
  • Then the second half is Yui-central as well. Booooooo.

Week # 8 – Fall Anime 2018

Week # 8 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!!!***


Merc StoriA: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle (Ep.7)

THOUGHTS

  • I should’ve put the show on notice last week, but I’ll say it now, if this arc is just as boring by the end as the last one was, I’m dropping the show. It can’t be this boring two times in a row and get away with it now.
  • I think what really has done this show no favours is that it had such a good start with really interesting and fun characters and then brushed them aside as they moved to a new arc. Meneraiah through the fairy arc, the mayor that turned out to be a boy in I believe the second episode, they were fun to watch and then they all left. Since the fairy arc, each episode fails to deliver the same feeling and especially hasn’t produced a single character I’ve remotely gravitated towards.
  • I’ll be honest here. The main cast does almost nothing and that’s why the great side characters really pushed the show. Yuu is boring, Merc gets old really quick. Toto is cute, but a mascot character doesn’t drive a show. The main cast isn’t much to begin with, so when the side characters are even worse, the show is held to the lowest quality possible. 
  • A show like 18if had a similar setup. The main character wasn’t interesting at all, it was the short arcs and characters within them that pushed things forward. This show managed to do that for the first few episodes, but now it has not only failed, but failed tremendously. I honestly don’t have any drive to watch the show, it’s more like I’m forcing myself to do it. So you know what that means…

Radiant (Ep.8)

THOUGHTS

  • God damn it, those dumbass sorcerers are back. The Bravery Quartet.
  • And their underwear is magical? Of course it is.
  • So we learn the reason Seth power isn’t working properly is because he thinks his gloves are where his Fantasia gathers, when in reality, he’s one of few who uses his bare hands, thus labeled a heretic. So Alma protected him by giving him gloves to wear.
  • Poor Doc. I’d feel sorry for him, but he’s kinda a bit of a prick…

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.8)

THOUGHTS

  • We’re gonna need a Futaba bath counter at this rate…
  • Why is it always raining heavily when you need to chase after someone?
  • It’s amusing watching both Futabas say there’s only room for one of them, when it’s so obvious that they are each half of one Futaba. One leaving would eliminate part of what makes her special.
  • [21:52] I thought she was calling Kunimi, not herself. Damn that came out of nowhere.
  • So with Futaba done now, I imagine we’re now back to Shoko? I’m already guessing the last few episodes will deal with Kaede, as her problem isn’t gone either.
  • [Post-Credits] Who the fuck is the blonde girl?!

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.8)

THOUGHTS

  • [11:50] WAIT?! DID SHIZU JUST FUCKING DIE OUT OF NOWHERE?!!!
  • Well, Rimuru’s got his human form now.
  • I will admit, it’s a little bit of a throw off how emotional the three adventurers are about Shizu. For all we know, they’ve known each other about a week at most. 
  • We basically had an entire episode that ended the life and then mourned a character we’ve known for what? 3-4 episodes? Don’t get me wrong, I like Shizu, but this is the type of episode you throw for a character who has been around a loooooooooooooot longer.
  • So…new villain? Can’t say I have any reason to have feelings about him. 

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 2/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 1/5 | Action – N/A

OVERALL SCORE: C (65%)


UzaMaid! (Ep.8)

THOUGHTS

  • We got robbed from having swimsuit Tsubame and Midori…
  • I knew Tsubame somehow had Misha’s underwear. No one’s getting close enough to stealing those under her watch.
  • Now Tsubame’s missing underwear, I was sure it was Midorin. But the hamsters being the culprits was definitely funnier.

Between the Sky and Sea (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • Haru is so fucking lazy…and yet I can’t stop loving her!
  • The sexist part of this storyline is extremely irritating. But it’s working, so they’re doing their job.
  • Sixth and final girl next week. It’s like I have this feeling she’ll be really good and help them nab these three tuna they need.

Conception (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Okay…she reveals she’s pregnant and then they’re transported to another world. You’ve got minutes to save this absolutely random bullshit.
  • This is really…really cringy…
  • Blah blah blah, our world is in danger, we need you to save them, even though you have no fucking clue what’s going on. This is fucking stupid, I’m sorry but this kind of plot only works if I’m interested from the get-go, which I’m not, so…BYE-BYE!!!

DID NOT FINISH – ***DROPPED***


DAKAICHI -I’m being harassed by the sexiest man of the year- (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • Sweet Jesus, they’re really trying to see how close they can get without actually showing anything, eh?
  • REALLY? THEY’RE GETTING COVERED IN HONEY?!!!
  • At this point, I have to declare this show too much for me. This has zero to do with it being yaoi, it has everything to do with how aggressive the show is with its romance. I’ve obviously never really looked into BL, so if this is what every manga, light novel and anime is in this genre, sweet fucking Jesus, they call us harem lovers perverts?!
  • I don’t actually hate this show. Truth be told, if not for the excessive over-the-top make-out sessions, I’d probably keep this show. There’s a real dynamic between the two guys that is hard not to like. But when a harem guy like me is even going “Wow, you’re overdoing it with sex.”, you’re pulling attention away from the rest of the show and it’s now become too much of a distraction.

OVERALL SCORE: D- (52%) ***DROPPED***


Frankenstein Family (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • Every time Tanisu mentions he’s a normal human, I’m convinced there’s something even more unique about him that we’ve yet to see.
  • All five play off each other really well, though I will admit that I’d love to see a little more than just someone causing trouble and them collectively having to fix it. I really want to see more comedy with it.
  • Because of this, the show is waning. Not quite “On Notice” material yet, but it’s in danger of getting there.

Jingai-san no Yome (Ep.2) *On Notice*

THOUGHTS

  • I still don’t know what the fuck I’m watching. This is beyond weird, not to mention it’s so short I don’t even have time to adjust to what’s going on before it’s over. Yep! Done!

Ms. Vampire Who Lives In My Neighbourhood (Ep.2) *On Notice*

THOUGHTS

  • I absolutely zoned out during this episode. That’s a terrible sign. It’s kinda shocking actually, considering it’s a moe show and I’m usually good with that. But I think it’s trying too hard, honestly. That’s probably the best way I can explain why it’s bugging me.
  • Well…and Akari’s kind of annoying…

My Sister, My Writer (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Already folks! Haven’t started the show yet, who’s taking the over-under on this one being a massive ecchi incest anime?!
  • A minute in, I think I’m taking the over…
  • All right, we’ve got censor symbols! I’m winning for sure!
  • Also…THAT GIRL HE WORKS WITH IS WEARING A SKIRT SHORTER THAN HER PANTIES AT HER FUCKING JOB?!!!
  • Oh? He adores an author? It won’t totally turn out to be his little sister… *sarcasm*
  • Close, she’s a new up and comer writing imouto light novels. That was the other option.
  • So it’s A Sister’s All You Need, but she’s the massive pervert.

Radiant (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • I’m blown away how interested I’m getting in this show. And even more interested in how the MC isn’t annoying me. In fact, I freaking love the guy!
  • It’s good that we have foils right off the bat for him and Alma to deal with, in the Bravery Quartet.
  • I wonder how they’ll explain how Seth can deflect that level of power. My crazy theory, is he’s somehow part Nemesis himself.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • The random girl at the park was hilarious, hope she’s a lot more integral later on.
  • It’s to the point now that Mai appears to be completely invisible, even her mother no longer knows who she is.
  • Now it’s even weirder that people at school still remember who she is. Makes it perfectly obvious that Rio is on the money with the school be the central cause of things. But the real question is what and why?

Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • I really like this anime. It’s half the length, moves fast, gives me a little insight on something I know almost nothing about and it’s not insulting my intelligence either.
  • Now with a little more structure, especially in knowing where every character works within the bookstore, everything makes a little more sense.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • My thoughts are that the black-haired girl in the picture is actually Veldora, so I’m waiting for that moment.
  • It’s nice to see goblins and not have the desire to throw up…
  • I’m still a little put off that we haven’t really met that many people yet after two episodes. It’s not a big deal, but given all the faces we see on the image above, you’d think we’d have seen one of them by now.

Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc and the Alchemist Knight (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • Okay, really? Is the milk cow nickname necessary? I really like this girl’s look, why you gotta ruin it?
  • I really, REALLY want to drop this show just because they slaughtered all those fairies and showed the blood. It’s Episode fucking 2, why are you trying way too hard to be a little edgy?
  • Really good action towards the end, loved crazy Jeanne.
  • I’m putting the show on notice, even though I really enjoyed the action in the second half. In my opinion, you cannot have a show where you give a female character a terrible nickname like “milk cow” because she has large breasts and then minutes later show 2 fairies dead in little pools of blood following that. That’s fucking ridiculous. You don’t violently kill moe.

Zombieland Saga (Ep.2)

THOUGHTS

  • At this point, I really REALLY like Saki and that’s it. The others right now are not really fleshing out. Pun intended.
  • The comedy is there for sure, but it’s coming at the very end with these concerts. The journey to the concert both episodes thus far has been boring and nonsensical. This time around, it’s not hiding as easily.
  • I still enjoyed the rap battle between the two, but the 15 minutes before it just weren’t great.

Week # 1 – Fall Anime 2018

Week # 1 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: There’s a new format coming with the weeklies this season. For a little more information and reasoning behind this change, you can check out my post from Friday here.

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


Between the Sky and Sea (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • The concept itself sounds like the dumbest thing ever. No more fish on Earth so now they have space fish tanks. And when they allow women the right to space fish too, the first six are all moe teenagers. This show is either going to be amazing or absolute garbage.
  • The other odd thing I’m noticing is that even though they have more rockets than ever it would seem and they have fucking fish tanks in space, technology doesn’t look any different.
  • I’m hoping this show doesn’t suck now, only because I’m already falling for Makoto.
  • It’s a little dumb seeing the inherent sexism against women in this venture. I mean we know it’s not in the past, so this kind of crap isn’t really believable.
  • The show’s humour and light-heartedness is infectious but man oh man are the over complicating things with the ships, rocket pods, God app and all this other stuff.
  • As annoying as Haru can be, she can also be extremely hilarious too.

DAKAICHI -I’m being harassed by the sexiest man of the year- (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • This is really the first heavily blatant yaoi anime I’ve ever watched. And admittedly it’s a little uncomfortable. Not because it’s yaoi, but because it’s very much the same level of discomfort I got from Citrus. It’s the initial psuedo-rape that really set me off and continues to do so as the show basically goes from 1 to 10,000 in an instant.
  • It’s also the idea that we have no knowledge of what Takato’s sexual interests are, as he fully admits that Junta stole his first kiss (HOW IS THAT HIS FIRST THOUGH?!!!), thus there’s no history of his sexuality. So for him to go from nothing to letting a guy presumably fuck him is insanely fast!
  • Aside from that though, the show has a certain charm to it. The two work well together and it’s sort of an interest dynamic between the two battling it out to be on top, which if Junta wins means he’ll get to be on top in another way, but y’know…
  • However, because of the discomfort, I’m doing the same thing I did after episode 1 of Citrus, I’m putting it on notice. And it’s almost a mirror image, as I actually liked the main character of that show, much how I like Takato as one of two leads.
  • It’s also REALLY bothering me how they have the neck drawn with lines along it. That requires docked points.

Interest – 3/5 | Writing – 3/5 | Design – 2/5 | Comedy – 3/5 | Ecchi – HOLY SHIT!!!(5)/5

Frankenstein Family (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • NOTE: This show appears to have already aired and Crunchyroll is just putting it up. As of right now they have 10/12 episodes up. Because this just randomly appeared, I thought it’d be a show to add to the weeklies anyway. So I’ll watch one episode per week.
  • There’s a massive slice of life vibe to this show, though it also comes with the dysfunctional family trope AND also has no parents to be found. So there’s also that struggle that at times during the episode I wasn’t enjoying too much.
  • Snow looks like a more adult Hope from Final Fantasy XIII. That’s VERY ironic.
  • Ashise is an over-exaggeration of how my girlfriend loves the little things. She totally agrees.

Goblin Slayer (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • I’ve heard stories before watching this episode of how things really start here. I’m worried that it ain’t going to be pretty…
  • Well that didn’t take long. So they aren’t skipping out on the violence. This is already really uncomfortable for me.
  • NOPE! Rape angle, I’m out! I’ve watched Grimgar and it’s grim, this is downright brutal for the sake of being edgy. Fuck right off!
  • NOTE: Because of this show and the reactions I’m reading online, this is something I’m going to have to address, either in a video or a blog post. Haven’t decided yet. But stay tuned!

Himote House (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • The animation is painful…
  • And I gave up after 3 minutes. My eyes hurt, the show is literally random as fuck and reminds me way too much of Tesagure, which is notoriously one of the few shows I ever rated a 1.

DID NOT FINISH – ***DROPPED***


Jingai-san no Yome (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • The hair and eyes of the main character hurt my eyes.
  • The OP for this anime is EXTREMELY catchy…
  • Wait…that was the episode?! I didn’t look to see that it was a 3-minute short. There was nothing there?!!!
  • I’m tempted to drop this show just on the basis that it literally gives you nothing as a first impression. But I’m so weirded out by what the show is (and the OP was really good), so I feel like I have to see one more episode, just for the sake of curiosity.

Ms. Vampire Who Lives In My Neighbourhood (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Oh good, a supernatural loli yuri anime!
  • The longer this anime goes, the more I wonder where everyone’s parents are. They’re acting like these girls who look like they’re 12 are grown adults.
  • I’m waiting for the comedy to come. Beyond the moe, there honestly isn’t that much here.
  • This show is going to be passable by a lot of moe lovers here, but I don’t see much potential in this at all. Going to give it one more episode to see what it does now that they’ve established things, but I’m not expecting much. The girls are too young and it’s very creepy (not even counting Akari herself) how hard they’re playing the yuri angle with these girls.

Radiant (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • This show sounds cliche as fuck, so it needs to really do something cool in this first episode.
  • Well…the OP music is really good…
  • It’s actually pretty light-hearted and not insulting in the way it’s selling Seth as a character. He’s not your typical shounen character that I usually get immediately turned off by

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • I’m identifying with Sakuta. He’s like the bitter part of me through high school, watching everyone act like their shit doesn’t stink, when in reality it smells worse than the sewage below.
  • It’s really strange how they’re having this other story of Mai being unable to be seen on certain days is VERY odd. I wonder if this will actually be explained?
  • This show as I watch further has great potential. The low-key nature of the show’s characters really make the show stand out.
  • So it would appear there’s definitely something paranormal going on with this show. Mai being invisible to people at times, both Sakuta and Kaede getting injuries from things they didn’t see. It’s very curious.
  • NOTE: For now, I’m using the ‘Mystery’ tag as one of the grades. This may not last, depending on how the show goes.

Space Battleship TIRAMISU Zwei (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Against my better judgment, I decided to take a peek at this show’s second season, despite it getting really bad towards the end. And honestly? This wasn’t that bad.
  • Subaru’s himself again, completely fucked in the head when not in his cockpit. Isuzu is about the same, unfortunately, still an annoying brat kind of guy.
  • Interested to see what their father is like, now that we’re starting to see him.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Y’know, other shows where the guy dies and ends up in the world, it’s unusual for the person to die a hero…well and also become a slime.
  • The 8-bit music in this show is making me so nostalgic and happy!
  • The absolute silliness of this show is as infectious as the show is confusing at this point.
  • Oh my fucking god, the dragon’s a tsundere!
  • I’m admittedly a little disappointed that this slime hasn’t met anyone human at this point.

Ulysses: Jeanne d’Arc and the Alchemist Knight (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • I like the vibes I get from the show. It’s funny, cute, serious, grim and everything in between.
  • OMG, the fairies!!!
  • I feel like they ran through a lot of the story way too fast…but if it means we get more time between Episodes 2 and 12, I’m all for it.
  • Um…how did he go seven years trying to make an elixir and not realizing it?

UzaMaid! (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • You know this show has my attention when I don’t type a thing until after it’s over.
  • Of course there’s a dead parent involved in this story.
  • Good lord the over-the-top pervertedness of Tsubame is amazing!
  • She and Misha are gelling so goddamn well. Gonna be real hard to keep these two from losing the Best Duo/Couple Award this year at this rate.

Interest – 5/5 | Writing – 5/5 | Design – 5/5 | Comedy – 5/5 | TBD | *-1 point for dead parents*

Xuan Yuan Sword Luminary (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Right off the bat, I’m getting vibes of past action anime that I drop the first episode because it starts a major conflict without explaining anything to the audience.
  • I’m not understanding the flashbacks. They appear like they’re supposed to mean something, but I have zero information to go on.
  • All right, I’m done. I lost absolute focus when the girl just gets attacked by a “snake demon” that suddenly exists and she falls into a hole where she seems to gain some sort of power that summons something to fight the demon and…oh my god I’m so lost and uninterested.

DID NOT FINISH – ***DROPPED***


Zombieland Saga (Ep.1)

THOUGHTS

  • Jesus H. Fucking Christ the intro! If this show ends up being terrible, I’m going to be so disappointed!
  • So all the girls are zombies? Got it.
  • And they’re going to be idols somehow? Okay.
  • THEY’RE BABYMETAL WITHOUT THE LYRICS?!!! I’m in!
