There were a lot of explosions this week. Things blew up in Iron-Blooded Orphans, Heavy Object, and Ajin. Explosions were aborted in Active Raid; the bomb didn’t explode. ERASED had no explosion, but it was still a nice episode. Read More Weekly Anime Review

A slightly less action-oriented week for my shows — well, outside of Heavy Object, which had an action-packed arc finale. Iron-Blooded Orphans was more about setting up the new arc on Earth. Active Raid focused on Haruka, who is a lot more into trains than fighting people. ERASED tread on old grounds. Ajin had some fighting, but it focused more on who Kei is.

Heavy Object, Active Raid, and Iron-Blooded Orphans were full of action this week. Ajin and ERASED had setup episodes for their next arcs; both were more psychological than physical tales this week. Read More Weekly Anime Review

Plot, plot all around. We learned a bit more in Active Raid, Ajin, and ERASED. Heavy Object started a new arc with lots of new characters. Gundam moved to another part of its story and presented a whole bunch of new characters too. Read More Weekly Anime Review

Erased‘s plot is moving on; seems like we are going toward a conclusion half-way through the number of episodes the show is supposed to have. This is somewhat strange. Heavy Object had Qwenthur increase his “feats” again. Active Raid has Unit 8 not causing catastrophic damage for once. In Gundam, Kudelia made her choice and Ajin is mysteriously missing. I dropped Grimgar. Read More Weekly Anime Review

ERASED and Ajin are probably my favorite shows right now. Active Raid and Heavy Object are still funny. Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans isn’t that bad, although very formulaic. Hai to Gensou no Grimgar might look very pretty, but that show is moving at turtle speed. Read More Weekly Anime Review

ERASED might be my best show of the season. The pacing is very good and the suspense well done. Heavy Object continues to do what Heavy Object does. Iron-Blooded Orphans shows that Tekkadan is family, again. Active Raid is rather fun to watch even if the whole thing doesn’t make much sense. Hai to Gensou no Grimgar has only another episode for me to stick with it despite the pretty pastel colors. And finally, Ajin might be my second best show of the season. Read More Weekly Anime Review
