Spring is here, which means that it’s time for the best holiday that has been turned into corporate marketing that isn’t Christmas. It’s Holi!
Not as much action this week; all shows are entering the final stretch, more or less. This means more plot is revealed and things are being set up for the future.
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.
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, […]
This week is the Oscars, which means around the country, people are cramming in their last chances to have social media bragging rights over whether they watched all the Oscar-nominated movies before the Oscars broadcast.
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.
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.
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 […]
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.
Oh man, everything is wonderful and terrible. The Internet hate fuel cycle has been in overdrive this week thanks to #OscarsSoWhite making the rounds, allowing us to add names to our Celebrity Shitlist.
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 […]
The new season is here. Heavy Object and Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans had new episodes and I added a few new shows: ERASED, Ajin, Active Raid, and Hai to Gensou no Grimgal. Some of the new shows might be dropped after a few episodes if they don’t “click”.
We all hoped he’d be immortal on Earth, but alas, David Bowie returned to the universe this week.
No anime review this week, because of the New Year and shift to the Winter season and me not having the time to watch anything. So I’m going to talk about what I will watch instead.
End of the season means shows are ending. Fafner Exodus season 2, Owari No Seraph season 2 and K: Return of Kings all reached their ends. Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Heavy Object will stay around for the winter season.
