Winter 2020: 2nd Impressions

Hi all, it is time for my weekly round up again.

So without further ado, let’s get the show on the road.

Darwin’s Game

So far this show has been delivering expectations. I don’t know what to expect next. Not a big fan of the character designs, but I guess I have to get used to that.

I don’t think I’m dropping this show anytime. I’m sensing some Mirai Nikki in this show and I want more of such material going on.

Hatena☆Illusion

I am starting to question this show. The story has been pretty solid so far, but animation consistency and quality is seriously deteriorating. We might be looking at an Azur Lane 2.0 right here.

I don’t think the problems will be solved soon, but I guess the bluray might see some changes? I won’t be dropping this as the story has been pretty solid so far.

But I guess I should see the manga, I love Yabuki’s character designs.

Heya Camp△

So far so good. I like the 5 min bite sizes info.

Housekisho Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei

So far this show has been delivering the goods. But very SJW-friendly too.

I don’t think I wanna drop this. It’s educational, its safe, its charismatic.

ID: INVADED

So far this show has its mystery elements, and it’s never boring to me.

The show pacing has been pretty quick so far, and I think it’s not really a good thing. Story arcs nailed down pretty much in 2 episodes.

But animation quality is probably one of the best this season besides Hanako. Music are also pretty lit, especially the ED.

Infinite Dendrogram

I think I watch this show for the sake of Ono Yuko’s cute voice. I am absolutely in love with it for some reason.

The story has been on the slow side so far, also need a bit of work to keep entertaining me.

Music is fine, animation quality is decent as well. NAZ is doing ID and this and they did an excellent job in splitting the workload thus far.

Isekai Quartet 2

So far so good. Gotta love how Naofumi catches on quick on ignoring Aqua.

But I think they interpreted Naofumi’s personality as a bit too serious. But anyhow, loving the show still.

Ishuzoku Reviewers

So far this show has been extremely provoking, and I like how ballsy they are at pushing the boundaries of showing this on TV. Just going to keep watching for the sake of the kinks and stuff.

Itai no wa Iya nanode Bougyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu

Called it, the developers nerfed her hard after that big massacre in the battle royale.

But this show is still pretty darn enjoyable. Watching a new gamer grow to the point of being way to OP is right up my alley, lowkey tingling my sadistic nature.

The music is a little bit on the weak side, but not that bad. Not dropping, having fun. Too much fun.

Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun

Ogata Megumi’s voice never gets old.

The show has its fun and action. I really love the storytelling and pacing so far. Artstyle are also still pretty solid.

Not dropping, Hanako-kun himself is the biggest reason I’m still watching the show. AOTS very likely.

Koisuru Asteroid

Very chill, much slice-of-life. I like.

This week has been rather educational as well. The OP has been great. Not dropping, I am in dire need of slice-of-life anyway.

Kyokou Suiri

This show has its mysteries, but I wish this show moves along a little faster still, despite the sudden romance developments.

Not going to drop. Decent music, nice cast, decent story so far.

Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden

So far the story is starting to feel rather bland, and that is not good news. I was putting my expectations pretty low, but I guess its not low enough.

I got a feeling Trysail is trying to sound like ClariS, making their song sound rather refreshing for the first time. Might be me being cynical.

I don’t think I will drop this, but if the show is starting to not meet my expectations, then I will start considering.

Murenase! Seton Gakuen

Yay more comedy more romance. I am still enjoying this show for what it is so far.

Tamura Yukari voicing a nude rat is kinda nice for some reason. I’m not turning into a furry, I swear.

OP was a little messy but ED was slightly better.

Either way, not going to drop the show anytime soon.

Nekopara

I don’t think I can fault this anime for anything at all. It has been perfect so far.

Despite the voice actress changes, I think I’m starting to get used to them. Animations has been pretty consistent as well. Can’t wait for more.

Never dropping.

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun T

So far so good, I really enjoy this way more than Index already. fripSide finally going back to their roots with their music.

J.C.Staff is pretty consistent with the animations but they are not exactly groundbreaking. Story pacing is a little bit slow, but I guess that’s a good thing, judging on how crazy fast Index was.

Not dropping for sure.

And that is all for the 2nd round of this season. I guess things are looking rather normal so far, nothing rather major to report, except for the worrying situation of Hatena Illusion.

This is also my last post before I go for my weeklong cruise vacation. I try to write a post on Sunday when I come back, if not, during the weekdays.


I will see you guys then!

  1. Wash your hands a lot and stay safe! Here’s to hoping no one sick is on your cruise!

    Also, Hatena Illusion’s animation is coming apart at the seams, it’s looking like they really rushed it or something.
