Summer 2019: 2nd Round

Hi hi, back for seasonal posts today.

This week, I think my intend to drop list becomes slightly more clearer than last week. Shows have become more and more epic, and also become more and more stale at the same time.

Well, lets get the post started, we ain’t got all day.

Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo.

After watching the 3rd episode, I don’t think I will like this one.

I like the setting, the concept, but I wish the story had a little more drama. Okada Mari wrote this show, but I honestly think this show is rather weak with the execution.

Well, she has been known to be rather slow during the first half, then throw everything in durinng the 2nd half. But I highly doubt this would actually happen. This show is only 1 cour and slice-of-life, and rushing things will probably ruin the show.

If I drop this, this would be the 2nd show from Okada Mari I dropped… (first one was NagiAsu, but I eventually finished it.)

I’m going to watch another episode and see how things goes, but things are not looking so bright here.

Granbelm

This show looks okay if I watch this show like its a tone down version of Release The Spyce.

I wish this show has more things going on, it really lacked the fun factor and comedy. I like the characters, but there is so little going on after 3 episodes.

Might drop, I don’t know. It did look promising, now I just find it rather stale.

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka II

Not going to lie, despite hating the first season, this season is shaping up to be even way better than I thought.

The pacing is definitely way better and faster than S1. I don’t think I have a reason to drop this show anymore.

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator

This is REALLY good, it expands a lot on Accelerator and I loved it.

The new character designs are also a big plus. Sometimes I feel that Last Order lacked that “key character” cuteness during Index and Railgun and this show literally fixes it.

The OP still gets me, I love it. No way I’m dropping this.

Joshikousei no Mudazukai

This is definitely a spiritual successor to Nichijou, I swear.

The stupidity, the references, the gags, I love everything about this show. Even the OP lyrics don’t make sense.

This is a pretty good stress reliever. I recommend this show if you are looking for more retards in anime.

Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Ni-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki desu ka?

Personally, I am enjoying this.

I’m just pretty much enjoying this show for being so ballsy with the concept and setting. The story or fanservice doesn’t really matter. Just gonna enjoy Kayano Ai’s voice looping in my head at night.

Machikado Mazoku

This is pretty chill.

I really love this show. Another show with a bunch of dumbasses on it.

Well, nothing much need to be said, not dropping this for obvious reasons.

Uchi no Ko no Tame Naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru Kamo Shirenai.

I love this. The “taking care of random kid in the woods” vibe keeps on coming.

No reason to really drop this, I’m enjoying this show every step of the way.

Maou-sama, Retry!

I am starting to have some doubts in this show. I thought this one had a slightly more serious vibe, but apparently no.

The comedy is all over the place, the story is starting to derail. I will keep this one on a close lookout and decide to drop it or not.

Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?

So far so educational. I really like the additional teacher, this is gonna spice things up a lot.

Not dropping, just enjoying every single thing about the show.

Isekai Cheat Magician

So far, I am not really thrilled about this show. The world building is TOO DARN LONG.

I wish they could just kick things off and put it up a notch. I’m starting to feel that Myth and Roid is a bit of a waste in this show.

Will put this on my watchlist of drop.

Kanata no Astra

I am not really enjoying this show at all. The visual distractions, the overly enforced gags, the unstable pacing.

I really don’t know about this. A lot of people are enjoying this apparently, but I guess I’m different.

Apparently 3DCGI are rendered in 16:9 while normal scenes are rendered in 21:9. I guess they outsourced certain things here and there. I’m rather nitpicky with such things so I find it a pretty bad distraction.

Next week, I will see if things changes. Gonna put this in my drop list.

Sounan desu ka?

2nd educational show of the season.

The story flow is definitely a lot better now, I think I can keep watching the show at this point.

No drop, the girls are definitely enjoying themselves being lost at the moment.

Tejina Senpai

Another dumbass show.

No drop, Senpai is like my spirit woman.

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou

I got this strange feeling that this show is gonna use the entire cour to tell a story about how he escape the dungeon.

I like the darkness of the isekai tone, but I wish things can pick up the pace a little bit. It is starting to slow down for some reason and I don’t really like it.

Watchlisting this show.

Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e

This show is actually on a decline, to be honest, but it has been meeting my expectations as I saw it coming.

This show slowed down its pacing a lot, but I think its bearable. The “killing one monster per episode” format may be rather generic, but at least we are getting action at nearly every episode.

I don’t think I’m dropping this show.

Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga

I really like this history show.

Hanamori Yumiri as Kichou is such a perfect fit. Story wise, it is looking to be pretty solid so I’m not gonna drop this. Studio Deen is nailing this.

I love history too much I guess.

Kawaikereba Hentai demo Suki ni Natte Kuremasu ka?

Is this show trying to nail all the closet kinks?

Well, I’m not complaining but damn, this show really escalated quickly in 1 episode. I genuinely don’t know if I love this show or not, but I don’t hate it either.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2

Well, things are going well as planned, so yeah.

No drop, too much fun.

Naka no Hito Genome [Jikkyouchuu]

I really like this show a lot.

Despite the No Game No Life-nature of the show being a little bit underwhelming, this show still have decent amount of action every episode. Nothing much to nitpick.

Onuma Shin’s comeback work is pretty nice so far at least.

Enen no Shoubutai got postponed this week out of respect for the KyoAni Studio 1 fire, so they will return next week.

That’s all for me today. This week changed pretty drastically, to be honest. A lot of shows just literally turned to the worst in just one week. I don’t because I was emotionally disturbed due to recent events or the shows really did go downhill. But yeah, next week will finalize which show to drop and which show to keep watching.

I will see you guys next week!
