Summer 2019: Mid Season Thinking Stuff

Hi hi, I’m back,. I know I have been slacking off a lot lately. But work makes anime marathoning harder than it seems.

I am currently watching a show I have been putting off for almost 5 years.

So we finally mid-season. I don’t know why, but this season feels like a lengthy one.

But one thing for sure, this season is pretty unstable. I dropped a lot of shows, and then they picked up their momentum after I dropped them. Lowkey disappointed, but I wish they could have played their hand sooner. I will rewatch some of those dropped shows when the blurays releases.

Well, let’s get the list going as they are still pretty long even though I dropped a lot of them.

Danmachi S2

I really hated S1, but I am loving this season a lot, I wish S1 was as entertaining as this. They are relying less on Hestia and bring actual plot devices and story to drive the whole show. I like this.

The plot development is faster than before, yet more entertaining and action-packed. I think I can finish this season without struggling like the previous season.

Can’t wait to see how this show is going to end.

Isekai Cheat Magician

So far, so mediocre.

The only thing that drives me to watch the show now is pretty much Myth and Roid opening. I really want to point out the character designs of the 2 main characters. They look EXACTLY the same if you remove the hair. Eye color, facial shape, everything. Are you sure they are childhood friends and not long lost siblings?

But yeah, it was a painful half season to watch. If this show doesn’t pick itself up by the next episode, I’m dropping it.

Naka no Hito Genome [Jikkyouchuu]

I feel like I’m the only one who loves this show. It has been delivering expectations for me. It does lack in context on the world building, but things are starting to make sense.

The character interactions are cute, Nazuka Kaori’s character is extremely lovable, despite being a lowkey yandere to the main hero. I don’t think I can hate this show, I will finish this.

Maou-sama, Retry!

I’m starting to not like this show, but the girls are so lovable. I can just watch the show for the girls, but I wish the story could have picked up a little more.

I might finish this show, I might drop this show, I don’t know. But most likely I will be able to finish this one.

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator

This show might potentially be AOTS for me. It’s been awhile since we saw Accelerator being serious.

This week really did its job. I love it, kind of sad it’s only one cour, I wish this show could last for 2 cours like the others.

Definitely finish this one, I really like the Necromancer a lot too.

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

I don’t know why people are dropping this show. Like what are they expecting? Actual incest or what? People just expects a show too much nowadays.

I still love this show for what it is. It can be rather educational as it reflects on what kind of parents exists and what should they do to fix themselves. But one thing to note is that I am starting to feel sick of Kayano Ai’s voice here. I don’t know why, I don’t find her voice as attractive as during the first few episodes.

Definitely finishing this one.

Tejina Senpai

Probably the most consistent show this season. Every episode so far delivers and non of them has underdelivered anything.

Definitely finishing this show.

Joshikousei no Mudazukai

The most retarded show of 2019, but damn I really love it. I cannot drop this, way too many laugh out loud at Starbucks moments for me.

Enen no Shouboutai

I was actually unsure in the beginning, but now I can confidently say that I am enjoying this show. I also recommend this show if you are unsure of picking this one up.

Girls are lovable, pyrotechnics looked pretty amazing, story is panning out way better than I expected. Pacing is a little slow though, but it is a 2 cour

I will finish this two cour.

Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo.

I was skeptical about the story at first, but everything suddenly changed momentum in ep 4.

I am not really enjoying this show like everyone else, but it is a pretty nice show for what it is. The sexual references is pretty damn open, and I like it. I wish more shows can stop avoiding such things and be open about expressing about the sexual jokes.

Not going to drop this one, Okada Mari is going somewhere with this show, and I want to finish it.

Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga

I love history shows, Kochou is perfect. I have nothing to complain but to finish this show.

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2

This show isn’t as funny as the first season, but it is extremely sweet and heartwarming to watch.

I think its a pretty nice change of pace, and I’m sitting here waiting for the romance to bloom.

I will finish it no matter what.

Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?

So far so educational. Extremely attractive fanservice and now we have a One Punch Girl in the making.

This show has been rather consistent, and I like how things are going with this. Not dropping it for obvious reasons.

Machikado Mazoku

This is pretty damn enjoyable for what it is.

I love the poverty, I love the dumb moments and also the boobie moments.

Not dropping this show ever.

Kanata no Astra

I don’t get how this show is entertaining people. I am also contemplating about dropping the show.

I really need advice on it, like I don’t get why people are enjoying this. If you guys like this show and want to educate me, put it in the comments below or @ me on Twitter and give me reasons why I shouldn’t drop this one.

Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e

I really love this show. It was dropping standards for about 2 episodes, but things picked up again and I love this show again.

I like the betrayal and entanglement of the plot so I won’t be dropping this. But I don’t think I can really recommend this show to anyone.

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

I really love this show.

It’s a simple, no-frills, heartwarming show of raising up an orphan by a single foster dad. Anyone who hate this show, probably hates kids or parenting so yeah.

Not dropping for whatever reason.

Sounan desu ka?

It got off with a rough start, but now it became to one of the consistent shows this season.

Girls are cute, personality just matches with one another.

I really wish they get rescued anytime soon, but the manga isn’t over yet so that is impossible.

So that wraps up my mid-season thonk.

My general impression of this season? This is probably one of my most disastrous Summer season in a long time. Picked up bad shows, dropped the shows that got so much better after I dropped them. My sensors are definitely off.

Next seasonal post will be the wrap up. I am actually more hyped about the next season more than this season now. I personally can’t wait for October.

Next post will be on Aobuta movie, I managed to watch it yesterday (at the point of this writing). A little spoiler, this movie lived up to the hype, and you guys should watch it.

The post will be out tomorrow so stay tuned. Don’t worry, as usual with my reviews, it will be spoiler-free.

That will be all from me today. I will see you guys tomorrow!

  1. I liked season 1 of Dan Machi, but season 2 is definitely a whole lot better. No argument from me there! 😊
    Like you I’m really enjoying Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e. No idea what it is about that show, but it just got something that is highly entertaining. Everywhere I look people are raving about Kanata no Astra. It’s actually very refreshing to see a different opinion for a change. I haven’t got access to it in my country, so I can’t judge it yet 😊
