Spring 2019 is wrapping up in two weeks and the Summer season is right around the corner. While I’ll be busy delving into my season long look into High School DxD aptly named The Summer of Love, I will also be catching a few shows that are hitting screens during the sunshine months. I’ll also be continuing to watch shows like YU-NOand Fruits Basket. The list isn’t much now, but you can check our my initial picks after the cut!
Seriously, I want this broken down and injected into my veins. I do not do hype, I hate it, but THIS is going to be amazing if it even lives up to a third of what I think it will be. Ecchi has been in such short supply this year, ranging for decent to horribly censored. This is the great last real hope we have for 2019. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it doesn’t have to be groundbreaking. Just be good enough.
The Spring 2019 anime season is heading into the final stretch and it’s been humming along rather well. While this is absolutely a quieter season than the last few, there have been some interesting and fun shows. My thoughts after about eight episodes in are after the cut!
Isekai has been around long enough now that there is safely a “big four” in the same veins of Shonen Jump’s old “Big Three”. So what happens when you smash those four together in a high school setting? Well you have the show Isekai Quartet, and the Tune of the Week is week is Isekai’s Quartet’s opening theme: Isekai Quartet sung by the main leads of Tanya the Evil, Overlord, ReZero and Konosuba!
Welcome to the Re-Dive, where I look back at a series I have previous done a shallow dive on and give it a second look. This may be because my thoughts on it have changed, new series have caused me to have a second look, or I just feel my previous post was donkey piss and I wanted to make a better one. We are starting off today with a look at a series that I believe has gotten undue treatment over the years. After the cut let’s take re-dive into the series In Another World with My Smartphone.
I normally wait until my three episode check-in to give you my thoughts, but every now and then something comes along that just can’t wait for it. I have never dropped a series harder than I dropped this one. I can’t even find the words to describe it, so enjoy a slew of Jontron clips that accurately sum up my feelings, beginning to end, of my views of the show Wise Man’s Grandchildafter the cut.
I love Isekai anime, but I’ve made it clear on this blog and elsewhere that I feel that the Isekai genre is pissing away it’s vast potential by chasing the same plot points over and over again. Simply put, every Isekai seems to be more than happy telling the same story about a shut in NEET who becomes a god figure with his own harem, every time.
That has led to some great shows, but I feel Isekai could do more, and if they don’t try to do more with their blank check of a premise they have, then fans are going to get turned off.
In preparation for watching this seasons’ Isekai Quartet, a comedy series featuring the four most popular Isekai shows, I realized I had watched only three of them, so I quickly loaded up the fourth show in order to understand their relevance to the rest of the cast, and I am glad I did, because the show I watched is everything I needed from this genre. After the cut let’s take a dive into Saga of Tanya the Evil.
