Fall 2017 Rundown: Week 4

Fall 2017 is still under way, and still shaping itself up to be, by far, the best season of the year. With an enormous selection of truly quality shows, and a bunch more that would have been the quality shows in previous seasons this year, I have been absolutely inundated with trying to keep up …

Inuyashiki Last Hero: First Impressions

Here we've got another show this season rendered mostly in 3d, at least the character models, anyways. The premise of the story is that Ichiro Inuyashiki, a 58-year-old man who looks far older than his actual age. With a family that hates him, working a low-wage job, Ichiro is diagnosed with stomach cancer. Waiting to …

UQ Holder: First Impressions

Who here remembers Mahou Sensei Negima? It was one of my favorite shows, back in the day; a great somewhat ecchi harem show that evolved into an amazing Shonen-type battle Anime. UQ Holder is a sequel to Negima, set in the same world, just many years in the future. I've been following the UQ Holder …

Girls’ Last Tour: First Impression

Wow, Made in Abyss season 2 came out REALLY quickly! I'm impressed! Ok, no, it's not Made in Abyss, but Girls' Last Tour is giving me pretty similar vibes. We've got chibi explorers, a beautifully, wonderfully detailed world, a fantastic first episode that avoids and info dump and leaves us wondering, wanting to know more …

My Girlfriend is Shobitch: First Impressions

Alrighty, here we go. Here's a show that's giving me serious vibes similar to My Girlfriend is a Gal; as in, a show that's trying too hard to be Ecchi and funny, failing at both, and forgetting there's supposed to be a story somewhere along the way. I will admit, I did enjoy this somewhat …

Land of the Lustrous: First Impressions

Let me preface this by saying that i've never seen an Anime rendered in 3DCG come out of Japan that i've actually truly enjoyed. They've all felt clunky, or out-of-place, or ugly, or just plain bad. Land of the Lustrous might change that. I was somewhat skeptical going in, but I quickly found myself looking …

Evil or Live: First Impressions

This might surprise a lot of people, but... I actually didn't enjoy the first episode of this show very much. I thought it was trying far too hard to be dark and edgy, the dialogue was imbecilic, the character designs bother me, and the whole basis of the episode felt like some wet blanket trying …
