Good day, oh boy, it is time for that final verdict on which show to watch or not…
Oh boy, another long post.
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Raihousha-hen
This show has definitely exceeded my expectations. I feel like this has already surpassed the first season in terms of entertainment.
How did they manage to pull this off? I really wonder, this season really made season 1 extremely boring now.
But yeah, never dropping this ever, this is just too fun to watch. Hikasa Yoko voicing a playful character is extremely refreshing.
Hanyou no Yashahime
I am going to put this out here, Moroha is extremely annoying. Okay mini rant done.
But generally the show so far feels pretty slow, kind of like Inuyasha in that sense, but since the show isn’t going to run as long as Inuyasha (I presume), I wish they could pick up the pace a little and go straight into the action instead.
But not dropping, this week finally delivered some of my expectations.
Assault Lily: BOUQUET
The eye candy of the season. I think the show has definitely over achieved for the first 2 episodes and now all that hype and expectation kind of tapered off.
But I don’t think I would drop this, I am still enjoying the show, but not as much as the first 2 episodes. I am putting my expectations high in this show.
Majo no Tabitabi
This show’s episodic format has proven to be extremely fitting. A lot of Kiki vibes and I love it.
To be honest, wasn’t expecting this much darkness in some of the episodes.
But definitely not dropping, Hondo Kaede managing to carry the show on her own, is pretty darn impressive.
100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa Tatteiru
A little disappointed with this one.
Was hoping they continued with the “Throwing team members under the bus” story vibe, now it’s slowly crawling into the territory of generic isekai.
But I don’t think I will be dropping it, the girls are cute, story is somewhat entertaining.
Time killer so I’m not dropping.
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka III
Okay, this is setting a pretty high bar for themselves.
I don’t think I need to say a lot here, but this show definitely here to stay.
I really wish that this show can last all the way till the manga finishes.
The story has a lot of bittersweet elements. (sweet for a lot of people, a little bitter for me) But this show is taking its time so it feels a little slow. The one step per episode feels.
Its not boring so not dropping. I wanna see how this marriage pan out.
Probably my closest way to understanding marriage life.
Adachi to Shimamura
I was actually kind of like “meh” for the first episode, but now, as the romance is starting to spice up, this show is starting to pick up its pace.
Now there is another potential lesbo couple so I am extremely stoked.
I really cannot wait for more. Not dropping. Me dropping a yuri show? Pfft please.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou
GODDAMMIT THIS SHOW WAS A SCAM.
AND AHHHH ITS MOVING SO FAST AFTER EPISODE 2.
NOT DROPPING, MUST. KEEP. WATCHING.
Strike Witches: Dai-501 Tougou Sentou Koukuudan ROAD to BERLIN
Oh great, looks like the Berlin operation got delayed till the end of the season. Not gonna lie, I thought they are going down to make this show a war of attrition. But I guess we are back to fanservicey, slow-paced in base slice-of-life.
But yeah, not dropping, I waited for 8 years.
Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou, Aruiwa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seisen
Not so much of the Boarding School Juliet vibe, but I guess it has its twist.
I wish there is more romance into the mix, at this rate they are not gonna start dating till the end of the season, I would be EXTREMELY disappointed by then.
But not dropping, still waiting for the romantic blow.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear
Definitely one of the good shows for me to destress.
I don’t need to say much here, not dropping. This show fun to watch, even with that OP MC element.
Dogeza de Tanondemita
THIS SHOW IS MY LIFE NOW.
Maou-jou de Oyasumi
This one is definitely dedicated to the ones with crappy hard beds. Oh wait only I have hard beds? Dammit.
But yeah great show, a lot of unexpected twist for a simple quest of having to be able to sleep better.
Not dropping at all. Never.
One Room: Third Season
Yay dream fulfilled
Not dropping. Closest I can get to get a girl to converse with me.
Iwa Kakeru!: Sport Climbing Girls
Yeah, this show is definitely meeting my expectations.
Not dropping, watching girls climb seems pretty hot.
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? BLOOM
Definitely the best season thus far, and we are only 3 episodes in.
Amazing character design refinement, vivid color palette, amazingly timed comedy.
I love it. Not dropping, we need Chino to go to high school.
Kamisama ni Natta Hi
This comedy is nostalgic, I really love it.
Not dropping, way too much fun to drop. But I am a little puzzled with the direction the story is heading towards. I guess we have to wait for the surprise.
Senyoku no Sigrdrifa
Was a little underwhelmed by the first episode, even with that 45min length, but as the show progresses, I’m just gonna take this show as a chill one than an actual action combat show.
Not dropping, girls cute, voice cute, soldiers cute.
I feel like MAPPA are trying to be Trigger really hard, its not a bad thing, but they are trying a little too hard.
Trigger has a flow in their comedies that no one really can simply just replicate. MAPPA lacks that flow, so their comedy feels a little too sudden, no buildup and sometimes I do forget to laugh… or maybe its a moment I should laugh?
But overall, the show is actually okay, not gonna drop it.
Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko
This show is lowkey depressing to be honest.
I am actually enjoying this show, in a very pleasant way. Time to stop expecting any action elements and transition into slice-of-life.
Not dropping, its an actual joy to watch.
To be honest, I have zero idea where this story is going for.
Comedy is like the key element of the story, and so far it is not delivering anything at all?
The character designs and the versatility of the voice actresses are currently carrying the show hard.
I am contemplating about dropping, I feel like they are all missing the comedy on purpose just to deliver that final blow at the end.
Munou na Nana
Simply put, Among Us anime.
Not dropping, it is just constantly spicy every episode. Okubo Rumi doing an excellent job.
Ochikobore Fruit Tart
I am absolutely in love with this show. So far everything about the show has been great.
The music slaps, the character designs are lit. The character personalities just blends in well.
Not dropping, I am enjoying this show a lot more than usual.
So that’s it for me, looks like I am gonna keep my 25 shows to myself. Holy crap, this is a lot and damn I feel old, I am unable to keep up with the posts since this post takes a lot of time to write.
Next seasonal post will be mid-season and upcoming reviews will be a little bit more Japanese dramas, because Netflix keeps giving me a lot of Japanese dramas lately and I just kept binging.
I will see you all then!
