Hypnosis Mic: Division Rap Battle – Rhyme Anima – Good

(HypMic)

tl;dr: Gay like [K]

Japan has been taken over by girl power, and all weapons have been banned. If that wasn’t bad enough, now all sexy boys been banished to the outskirts of Tokyo, cuz it’s hard to be a lesbian if Juto Iruma’s around.

This is the future that liberals want.

But all these boys are, like, rambunctious, y’know? They wanna fight! And in HypMic (I gotta hope this is pronounced Hype Mike instead of Hip Mick), there’s a solution: the hypnosis microphone. Developed by Kaiba Corp., this tool allows for sick rhymes to deal real damage in rap battles. And you know our boys are battlin’.

Time to lay down the beats with beats
Spoiler:

Fansite: https://hypmicen.wordpress.com/

Manga: https://slugtranslation-hypmic.tumblr.com/

Director: Katsumi Ono (Some Symphogears, Some Yu-Gi-Ohs, Girly Air Force)

Animation Production: A-1 Pictures (Aniplex)

Musics:

Japanese rap is great because none of the words mean anything.

Anime Trailer:

Enamored of the concept and characters I may be, but I’m not expecting the show to be anything truly exceptional. That being said, I only care about how much Drunk_Sage will enjoy a show while watching it, and I’m expecting a fair bit of enjoyment here.

In Japanese, dumb translates to fun.

 

 

Love Live! Nijigasaki Gakuen School Idol Doukoukai – Okay

(Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club )

tl;dr: Love Live at its most generic.

Spoiler:

Director: Tomoyuki Kawamura (Mitsuboshi Colors… which I need to finish, Kamigami no Asobi, Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai)

Animation Production: Sunrise

I stopped caring about Love Live when the mobage came out and it forced me to come to terms with how dogshit I am at rhythm games.

The show will probably be fine, but if it aspires to anything more than that, it’s not yet evident.

 

 

Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka III – Excellent

(DanMachi S3)

tl;dr: Honestly, fuck anyone who doesn’t like DanMachi. And I mean in the snuff kind of way.

Spoiler:

Manga/LN: Why bother reading when you could watch them tiddies bounce?

Director / Animation Production: Hideki Tachibana & J.C.Staff (Having done DanMachi S1 and S2, I am convinced they can do no wrong)

Season 1 was a masterpiece of happy-feels shounen. And I’m tired of letting people pretend like S2 wasn’t just as good. How do you not fucking get what DanMachi is?

You got a good dude doing good things in a world that’s not so good. Fucking simple. I read the top-rated review on MAL and it boiled down to three points:

 

“It’s predictable”

There aren’t any shounen I’m aware of with a prostitute rescue arc. But hey if you were sagely enough to see that coming, I’m sure you totes knew the main takeaway would be “prostitutes are people too” instead of “even whores can find Japanese Jesus”. Great observation!

“I read TVTropes once and it says all the characters are generic”

The more aspects to a character there are, the more tropes apply. What the fuck are you looking for?

“All women are sluts”

Okay, I think I understand the demographic of people who don’t like DanMachi now. I can smell the smegma through my screen.

 

This new season features Bell saving a cute monster girl and getting assfucked by society in the process, as is the DanMachi standard. I am 100% in.

 

 

King’s Raid: Ishi wo Tsugumono-tachi – Meh

tl;dr: Beefus swing sword. Mage girl wobble magic.

Spoiler:

Manga: N/A. This is mobage trash.

Director: Makoto Hoshino (UtaPri3, Damepri)

Animation Production: OLM (Pokemons), Xebec Sunrise Beyond (Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise)

I was watching the trailer but then I got bored, and I imagine that’ll sum up the King’s Raid experience.

I’ll let Twitter beta test this one, but there’s way too much shit this season that I actually wanna watch for me to gamble on rigged dice.

 

 

Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken (2020) – Meh

(Dragon Quest: Dai’s Great Adventure)

tl;dr: Dragon Quest The Animation

Spoiler:

Manga: I dunno, I downloaded it. Check Nyaa, unless they caught the covid too.

Director: Kazuya Karasawa (Directorial debut)

Animation Production: Toei Animation (The End of Evangelion, Kanon, Clannad Movie)

Dragon Quest is the Applebee’s of RPGs: if anyone says it’s good, you’re legally allowed to kill them.

The kind of people who spent their childhood playing Dragon Quest grew up into the kind of people who listen to podcasts and watch streamers.

The manga wasn’t awful, from the volume I read, but it wasn’t anything worthy of a time investment.

 

 

Munou na Nana – Great

(Talentless Nana)

tl;dr: 

Spoiler:

Manga: Just download it from Nyaa: https://nyaa.si/view/1284056

Director: Shinji Ishihara (Fairy Tail, Log Horizons, and some gay shit, but not in the good way)

Animation Production: Bridge (Fairy Tail Final/2014, Nanatsu no Bitoku, and we’ll pretend that’s it)

 

This is so up my alley I’m gonna save a fortune in prostate massages.

Look, if the tags alone don’t sell it for folks, they’re just gonna have to live life knowing they’re normie scum.

But not you, right, dear reader? You’re one of the chosen ones, like the Jews or the Nazis. And I will always love you regardless.

Cheers to happy viewings~

 

 

Iwa Kakeru!: Sport Climbing Girls – Good

(Hang On! Climbing Girls)

tl;dr: Sports ecchi based around competitive wall-climbing.

Spoiler:

Manga: Yeah there’s a manga, but you can’t see the sweat in real time so who gives a fuck?

Director: Tetsuro Amino (Arslan Senki, Macross 7, Shiki, Gundam Zeta/Turn A, the complete works of Shakespeare, and now this)

Animation Production: Blade (Chinese stuff)

Ladies, let’s agree to be gay for a second. Fellas, let’s pretend to be straight for a second.

This is the kinda show puberty was made for.

 

 

Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko – Bad

(Kami-Touchy the Bad Place)

tl;dr: Posting bail after getting charged with possession of child porn, a Californian computer engineer named Roberto downs a bottle of sleeping bottles and drifts off into death.

Luckily for him, a handful of goddesses from another world are facing a dire under-population problem. Whisking him off to their realm of magic, he discovers himself reincarnated as a 9-year-old boy in a land where the children are able to conceive, but adults cannot.

The goddesses set upon him a trial: impregnate 100 girls before the year is done, or be banished to the shadow realm!

Will our protagonist be able to use his years of expertise to lure children to his bed? A light-hearted tale of romance and rape is about to begin!

Spoiler:

Manga: Linking to the LN or manga would be illegal, so I won’t.

Director: Takeyuki Nanasa (Debts of Desire, Classroom of Atonement, Private Sessions)

Animation Production: Maho Film (UchiMusume)

They are really treating this subject light-heartedly.

 

 

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: Raihousha-hen – Literal Fucking Garbage

(The Irregular at Magic High School: The Jungle Book Arc)

tl;dr: “What if we had an immortal, invincible main character whose sole personality trait was that he lays prone while his sister bloodily rides his dick?”

Spoiler:

Manga: Who cares?

Director: Who cares?

Animation Production: Who cares?

I despise Mahouka, but I would hate wasting my Friday night on thinking about the show even more. So we’re just gonna move on.

If you want good examples of OP characters, think Saitama from One Punch Man and Izayoi from Monadaiji-tachi. Tatsuya is insufferable.

 

 

Maesetsu! – Bad

(Soccer Club Friends)

tl;dr: The next project from the dude who did Lucky Star.

Spoiler:

Manga: Just started; couldn’t find scans rip.

Director: Yuu Nobuta (Same dude who’s doing Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear this season, and that sucked)

Animation Production: Studio Gokumi (Tsurezure Children, Yuuki Yuuna, Kinmoza), AXsiZ (they’ve yet to make a tolerable show)

The PVs were unvoiced so have an OP instead of a trailer:

If that didn’t turn you off the series, nothing will. I am retroactively dropping Lucky Star two grades for this.

 

 

 

The Shorts – Varies

  • Rail Romanesque – Meh

    • This is an adaptation of the loli VN that hasn’t been banned from Steam yet cuz the morality police only speak American. Cute girls doing cute things is the worst genre, so I’m skipping this.
    • TL Note: I don’t actually skip shorts cuz they’re easy as fuck to put a +1 on my MAL and I hear once you hit 10,000 series watched, Jesus gives you your virginity back.

 

  • Inu to Neko Docchi mo Katteru to Mainichi Tanoshii – Bad

    • If your full-grown dog is smaller than a football, it ain’t a dog. Avoiding this out of principle.
    • TL Note: Again, I’ve willingly subjected myself to awful things just for the e-peen. Like, I’ve watched everything made in Japan before ’41. Did I make judicious use of the fast forward button? Maybe, but don’t let the e-cops know.

 

  • Kaeru no Pickles: Kimochi no Iro – Bad

    • I’m gonna be bold here: frogs suck.
    • …I’m gonna walk that back a bit: anime frogs suck.
    • Real frogs are cool.

 

  • Eternity: Shinya no Nurekoi Channel ♡ – Meh

    • Any time literal porn is accepted as “real anime”, another series is added to my watch list. Like, it’s gonna get a 3/10, but fap material you don’t have to hunt for is the dream of the lazy.

 

  • Himitsukessha Taka no Tsume: Golden Spell – Awful

    • If you like the garbage they put on Adult Swim, you’re still not the target audience for this cuz you probably speak English.

 

 

 

tl;dr

I gotta pump more of these out like a Catholic, but first: gin.

I’m gonna pretend that’s not vodka.

 

After the gin: Part 3/4. So much fucking stuff airing this season… Pray for me. ;_;

    Fujoshi bait shows aren’t my thing. However, some josei wish fulfillment show, I’m totally down for that shit. That being said, this looks ridiculous enough to be interesting. Esp if they focus more on going over-the-top with the concept than having a cohesive story.

    DanMachi S3
    Whats wrong with whores? It’s not like a girl’s going to see any action from the MC in any of these shows. Though the lack of Loki on the “cover” art isn’t helping. The show never really “did it” for me on the whole but I’ll probably put it on as background while grinding my gacha games.

    Climbing Girls
    Why do they have to keep insisting on putting in some lame story in these things. Just make a show about some fit girls doing some new physical activity each week with the show consisting of them getting all hot and sweaty as they exert themselves with nice camera angels and the appropriate amount of moans, sighs and grunts. Learn from Hentai and give the people what they want without all the bull shit.

    Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
    How dare you speak ill of ‘Second Coming of Jesus: The Anime’! I kept waiting for the story to get interesting, but then I realized my Dad lied about going out for a pack of smokes.

    Thank you for your insightful commentary.

    • Nothing wrong with whores. The point I was trying to make is how Japan is so ~egh~ over the possibility of their waifus getting cummed up. Take a look at Kannagi for an example of that; pretty sure that’s the only reason Aisha said that line she did at the end of S2.

      Foxgirl-chan is fucking fantastic.

  2. I think “meh” is being extremely generous for Rail Romanesque. I don’t think I’ve hated a show that quickly before, especially one ostensibly involving trains.
