On my Radar for Fall 2019: The (Mostly) Three Episode Check-In!

The Fall season is chugging along and it has been a rather surprising run so far. With several great shows that are picking up the slack for a rather off year, though after the all around banner one 2018 was, perhaps we are just being a bit too hard. Either way it’s been almost three episodes now for most shows and I’m here to let you know what my thoughts are! I’ve added a few more to the list as well so join me after the cut!

Quick Thoughts on: Kaguya-Sama: Love is War Season 2 Announcement: Excellent…..

That’s a very good touch….

Image

Surprising in only the fact that it has taken longer than expected. Kaguya-Sama: Love is War joins the already impressive line-up of shows with a second season coming. This is a great thing, and again, it is shocking that it has taken this long. Love is War was a show that I almost dropped at the start, but has ended up not only being my favorite non-ecchi show of the year, but the current front-runner for my anime of 2019. It was an absolutely stellar show with awesome comedy, fun characters and a wholesome romance that was light on melodrama and heavy on the antics. Coupled with a catch theme song and more memes to shake as stick at, it was a given that we would return to this world sooner than later.

If for some reason you haven’t watched this show yet, absolutely go give it a look. It is so far the only anime from early 2019 (aside from Date A Live III) that has stuck in my mind. It is really that fucking good. I can’t wait to watch more if it and see the mind-games between our two leads continue.

Hensuki: Are you willing to fall in love with a pervert, as long as she’s a cutie?: Yes, yes I would.

I’ve said this at least have a dozen times, and I’ll keep saying it. 2019 has NOT been a good year for ecchi. Aside from a clear lack of ecchi and fanservice shows in general, those that we have had have ranged from the decently ‘eh’ (Date A Live III), the forgettable (Nobunaga’s Sensei), the overly censored (Why are you here Sensei?), and depending on who you ask, the disappointing (Two-Hit Mom). It just hasn’t been a good year, but to be fair, 2018 has been a hard act to follow with the double whammy home runs of How Not to Summon a Demon Lord, and High School DxD Hero.

However hope is not lost, and there is actually a series in 2019 that isn’t only a great ecchi, but it is a reminder of just how fun ecchi can be. After the cut let’s dive into the series Hensuki: Are you willing to fall in love with a pervert, as long as she’s a cutie?

YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World Second Cour: Buy the Visual Novel Remake on Sale NOW!

Takuya and YU-NO fuck.

They do. It’s in the visual novel, they have whole conversation and then go straight down to bone-town. I just wanted to get that out there, cause they cut it from the anime series, the bloody cowards. Oh and Kanna is his daughter and he fucked both her AND her Mom.

Anyway, after the cut let’s talk about the second half of the anime adaptation of the legendary visual novel: YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Second Cour: Gourmet Hamburger

I have made it clear on this blog that I do not engage in “hype.” The truth is is that I hate hype. I loathe it. Too often hype leads to unrealistic expectations, and those expectations, when confronted with the reality of what a show is, it can lead to disappointment and worst of all, fan backlash.

Getting exciting for things is good, but placing all your hopes and dreams on a single show often never works out. Sometimes it is best to take a step back, let the “hype” die down and then examine a show and your feeling towards it.

So yeah, after the cut let’s take a dive into the second cour of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Lord El-Melloi II Case Files: Rail Zeppelin Grace Note: Spinoff High and Spinoff Low

Famous series and popular series are no strange to the concept of the ‘spin-off’ and that very concept has had a very sketchy record. In the west, there has been some successes: The sitcom Frasier which spun off from Cheers was wildly successful, the Arrowverse, probably the best thing to come out of DC comics in the last decade is pretty much all spin offs from one show about a B-tier super hero. However there have been also considerable clunkers, with things like Joey, AfterMash and several others never being able to recap the magic of its parent series.

For anime it is a bit different, but there is still that checkered history. Boruto is doing decent as a successor to Naruto, and A Certain Scientific Railgun is considered it some ways even better than its first series Index. Yet there have also been mixed bags, and we come to one of those today. After the cut let’s take a dive into this seasons Fate series, and spin-off Lord El-Melloi II Case Files: Rail Zeppelin Grace Note
