Summer 2019: Third Round

Hi hi, I’m back for another seasonal post.

After this week, I will write another one during the mid-season, probably in about 3 weeks or so.

So I said last week, quite a few shows are on the verge of being dropped, but after this week, some shows managed to save themselves, some didn’t.

So let’s get this long post over with.

Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou

I think I will drop this. It’s not bad or anything, but I got a feeling that I will be disappointed by the end of the season.

The pacing is questionable, the loli placement is just way too convenient. I really got a feeling this show is going to spend a cour telling a story about him getting out of the dungeon before he can actually get his revenge. The loli also made things looked more on the generic side.

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka II

This season, I have to say, really changed my impression of the season totally. But if I dropped the first season, I will miss out on this one. J.C.Staff need to fix their priorities.

I wouldn’t say I enjoy the show yet, but it is a lot more entertaining thann the first season, for sure. The pacing is a lot more faster, things are developing the way I hope it would be. So yeap, gonna watch this till the end this time round.

Isekai Cheat Magician

I don’t know about this show personally. The title did raise my eyebrows, and the intro scene did gives off a pretty good feel about the show, but as the show develops, I’m starting to have my doubts.

The show’s world building and introductions are pretty darn slow. I wish they can pick up the pace a little next week. Not going to drop this one as I still have a tiny bit of confidence left in the show being about to stand on its two feet.

But if things still keeps going downhill, probably dropping this show by mid-season.

Naka no Hito Genome [Jikkyouchuu]

Not gonna lie, this show wasn’t as entertaining as I expected, but I still enjoyed the show.

The characters are actually pretty lovable, Nazuka Kaori’s character especially. The games are pretty stupid at times, but the end story after every game is pretty nicely wrapped. Hopefully this show will pick up eventually after this week.

I won’t drop this one, it’s never ever considered.

Maou-sama, Retry!

Starting to doubt this show’s ability to be able to tell a compelling story. I pretty much watch this show for the sake of Ishihara Kaori’s voice/character and Blonde Rem.

Tsuda Kenjiro’s voice is sounding a little more comfortable after this week, not sure whether he did change his pitch or because I got used to his voice. This show did show a lot of potential and promising during the beginning, but now things start to look rather stale. With Tomatsu Haruka joining the cast, it did buy some time for this show, but not for long.

I will think about this one and see if the story improves, if it doesn’t, probably dropping this one mid-season.

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator

Last Order really grows a lot on me this time round. The character design revision really feels pretty darn good.

Definitely not dropping this, Accelerator’s anti-hero characteristics are finally shown at its full extent here. I really love this, the new necromancer is also looking to be annother solid character. Sad that its only 1 cour, I guess this is a soak testing season, if the response is good, they will make more. I think this show has a pretty high chance of having another season.

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

People are taking this show WAYYYY too seriously. Like how many shows have you guys watched already. How do you expect such high developments on a show that is supposed to be a time killer.

Personally, this show is within my expectations, not going to drop this one ever.

The interactions between mother and son is pretty darn cheesy at times, I never felt so much entertainment in such relationships.

But honestly, what kind of developments are you guys expecting? Incest or what. Like relax, stop putting such high expectations on shows that are pretty much on the surface level is obvious that the show is going to be very nonsensical.

Tejina Senpai

This show is too much comedy for me to drop. Not dropping, Hondo Kaede’s voice is extremely nice to listen to.

Joshikousei no Mudazukai

Can’t drop this. This show keeps making me look retarded after every episode.

Akasaki Chinatsu really is clutching here. Toyosaki Aki’s monotone voice has reached new heights. I really love this show. Whoever haven’t watched this, this is the Nichijou of 2019, you really need to watch.

Enen no Shouboutai

They are back after that one week break

Well for a 2 cour, this show is developing even faster than the others. As for the story, it is developing pretty nicely, not what I am expecting, but damn this show is getting pretty good.

The “alternate universe” Bakugo is growinng on me slowly and I love him. Not gonna drop, especially when the plot pacing is developing pretty nicely for a 2 cour.

Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo.

I was thinking about dropping this last week, but for some reason this show picked up its pace this week, and now I don’t want to drop this anymore.

The coming-of-age theme is slowly growing on me, I think this plot will mature pretty nicely if we give it time.

Okada Mari’s work, I was actually scared that I will be dropping her work for the first time, but eventually she came back. The story is getting more and more relatable for me as a guy even though its talking about a bunch of girls.

Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga

Kichou cute, Nobunaga handsome, what is there for me to complain?

This show is going on pretty nicely so not dropping. History student needs to finish his history class.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2

Not dropping for obvious reasons.

The romance is getting a pretty big boost this season as both characters are starting to be clear about what they want and who they love.

This is getting sweet. So diabetic that I want more.

Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?

Not dropping. Educational, a show based around protein and a potential One Punch Girl in the making.

Machikado Mazoku

My stress reliever of each week, can’t drop, won’t drop..

I like how stupid the devil is, not my kind of comedy, but I like how her mother is just constantly throwing shade at her.

Kanata no Astra

I am lowkey thinking about dropping. The overly forced comedy did tone down this week, but I don’t know what is there to enjoy when the comedy is executed wrongly.

I think I will wait till mid season. This show is a one cour and the pacing is all right. Characters are lovable in their own ways. The visual distractions is minimized a lot this week.

But yeah, till mid-season.

Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e

Not dropping yet, but yeah, story is starting to degrade at a pretty slow pace.

I still have some level of confidence in this show. He is definitely not gonna find the damn traitor in this season, but hopefully they will pull off a good climax.

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

Well this show took a pretty dark turn this week. That bully case is pretty darn relatable at some point.

I wish this show didn’t take such a dark turn within 10mins, too much for my heart to handle. Not dropping, Latina is best loli this season.

Granbelm

I am going to drop this one.

It has a lot of Release The Spyce vibes, but it lacks comedy and charisma to keep my attention span going.

I like the “midget” mecha vibe, feels like Kannazuki no Miko, but just plain mediocre.

I like the cast, it looks pretty darn solid, but it really lacks the charisma that Release the Spyce, Yuuki Yuuna had. It is extremely barebones, pretty stale and really really really slow.

I actually felt good that I’m dropping this show, because every episode is starting to feel like a pain to watch.

Kawaikereba Hentai demo Suki ni Natte Kuremasu ka?

This show had pretty good art direction, pretty promising concept with the goal of hammering down everyone’s closet kinks, but I’m dropping this one.

The kinky nature really intrigues me, but after that the show had pretty much nothing else to offer. The voice cast is also pretty darn solid here, it is such a pity that the show was so underwhelming.

I really love the character designs, general art direction, probably one of the more eye-pleasing ones of 2019.

Plot was slow and dreadful, the individual character arcs wrap-up so far has been a mess. I should save my time and rewatch Shimoneta instead.

Sounan desu ka?

I really love this show. I can’t drop this.

The story cutting is a LOT better than the first episode, there is a certain flow now. I can’t wait for more. The girls are all lovable.

So yeah, that’s it from me this week. Dropped 3 shows in total so far, but also putting a few more shows on watch, will consider whether to drop them during the mid-season.

My next seasonal post will be during mid-way of the season, probably 2-3 weeks from now, I will see whichever week I’m free to write.

I am on my way to completing Nichijou so expect a review sometime soon, not going to promise a date first, hopefully by the end of the week.

As for August, I’m intending to watch Bunny Senpai movie as it’s coming to my place, not going to guarantee that I’m watching as life is getting busy, I will inform you guys on Twitter if I’m watching for real at a later date, when I can book the tickets. Weathering With You is coming to my place by end of September, that will be a guarantee watch for me.

A lot of things happening by the end of the year so I’m pretty glad.

I will see you guys soon.
