Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou (Attack on Titan Junior High)
“Attack on Titan, but everyone’s chibi and in middle school” is the kinda joke you’d bandy around with your buddies for an hour or two after a couple drinks. But it gets much less funny when there’s real time put into it. 3-minute episodes would be tolerable, but a series of 12 17-minute videos? Eh…
Owari no Seraph S2 (Seraph of the End S2)
The first season sucked and the second does too. But I guess it definitively answered the question of “Will fujoshi watch something just cuz it has pretty boys in it?”
I just finished up a marathon of the first season, so I’m prepared to say this is gonna be 100% better since we don’t have to deal with another 6-episode marathon of Yukine being a whiny shitbag.
And it only comes at the cost of watering down Bishamon’s character like it was that fucking tap-water-and-cola “Long Island” I had at AMC last week. What a bargain.
Dance With Devils
It’s like Diabolik Lovers, but with less rape, better incest, and a cooler outfit for the MC. So yeah, it’s still mediocre, but at least it ain’t setting the human race back a century.
Don’t take Comet Lucifer’s placement in the meh section to be a heavy knock against the show. Rather, the first episode consisted of so much setup that it’s impossible to tell if the payoff’s gonna be worth it just yet.
I am actually gonna be a bit bullish on this one and say that it may end up being one of my favorites this season. Give me an episode or two before you ask me why, cuz I don’t want this to end up being another Galilei Donna situation.
Gakusen Toshi Asterisk (The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water)
The only thing that makes Gakusen better than Gakuen is… uh… I dunno, I guess I just like it more.
Gentlemen, I like war. And onee-sans. God, if only the show had something happen in the first episode, I could rate this higher. Japan, plz. I need my lung cancer.
Mobile Suit Gundam – Iron-Blooded Orphans
Engrish courtesy of bad ripping by HorribleSubs.
It’s a Gundam that doesn’t have 00 in the subtitle, so yeah, it’s probably gonna suck. Just hasn’t given me a reason to take much of a stance on it yet. ~_~
The entire first episode was spent pissing all over common tropes & popular anime. While that was enough to moderately impress me, I am quite worried that this series won’t have much to go on in subsequent episodes. Please, prove me wrong, Japan.
K – Return of Kings
Young Black Jack
Though YBJ is objectively trash, its formulaity is somewhat comforting. It’s basically the junk food of anime.
