Although Mahouka has ended, I expect a season two in a few years. Argevollen is back with much quality and a new mecha. Sword Art Online hasn’t completed its arc, which was really decompressed. One new show for the fall season is Gundam: G Reconguista. It’s trippy. Next week will have more new shows.
Captain Earth and Aldnoah Zero ended this week. Mahouka has one more episode to go. Argevollen had a break, well, a recap episode, and Sword Art Online is staying for the fall. Luckily for me, this fall season seems to be a big one, so I’ve got plenty to choose from to replace the ending […]
We’re almost at the end of this summer season. Mahouka is starting to rush things out to finish its plot in time for the finish line, and it’s really a good result, but much better to read the novel translation on Baka-Tsuki. Captain Earth had an expected plot twist with Puck. Argevollen had its best […]
There was a lot of talking this week on all of the shows. It’s like it was Let’s Talk week. Mahouka took it really slow despite only having a few episodes left to finish the current story arc. I guess the battles are going to go fast. Captain Earth delivered what was more or less a filler episode from […]
Shows are cruising toward their endings or mid-season finals. Mahouka was action-packed this week; in fact, it had two fights against the same enemy in a single episode. Captain Earth had a weird ending moment. Argevollen was, once again, super slow. The direction of that anime is lacking. Aldnoah had the best episode I’ve watched of […]
Mahouka got serious! Erika is scary in that mode. Captain Earth had some fighting against Asteroids and more stupid Salty Dogs. Argevollen‘s plot is still moving at a snail’s pace, but I guess building the maybe-bad guys is a good thing. Aldnoah Zero was hard to watch, poor Slaine. Sword Art Online had more emo Kirito, hopefully […]
I dropped Re: Hamatora this week because I don’t like where it is going that much. For the rest, threads are picking up. Argevollen succeeded in having the worst and best animations of its season in a single episode. Mahouka shows that kids can easily be bullies to adults. Captain Earth has people doing stupid […]
Once again, some nice action and plot development this week. Somewhat normal weeks for the almost-ending shows like Mahouka and Captain Earth. There was also a lot of plot exposition, maybe a bit heavy-handed in some cases. Actually, that’s one of the annoying thing in recent anime: heavy-handed exposition. It just doesn’t flow that well, […]
There was action this week, lots of action. Mahouka had a Tatsuya rampage. Captain Earth had anAustralian Outback rampage. Argevollen had a Unit 8 rampage. This is a lie, mostly off-screen, most of the episode was Jamie running as per the title: “Run, Jamie!” Aldnoah Zero had the Martian Vlad going on a rampage. Sword Art […]
Mahouka and Captain Earth are trotting slowly toward a conclusion, although it’s a bit unclear where both are going. Argevollen is still going too slowly plot-wise. It’s not a bad show, it just lacks “oomph” in term of direction. Aldnoah Zero and Sword Art Online II are the most awesome shows currently and Re Hamatora […]
We got nice action this week in Adlnoah Zero, Sword Art Online II, Re:Hamatora, and Mahouka. In contrast, Captain Earth and Argevollen were slow and somewhat boring. After this week, Aldnoah Zero is quickly becoming my favorite show due to its beauty and fabulous plot.
I’m really liking the new shows I picked for the summer season. Aldnoah Zero is so far building up to be awesome in all aspects. Sword Art Online continues to be an awesome critique of online gaming. Argevollen might be the weak link, but it is still building, though much more slowly than did Aldnoah. I […]
The summer season has started, which brings us two more shows, one is another mecha that has war drama all written over it and the other is Sword Art Online that returns for a second round. Mahouka continues on with the magical competition and Captain Earth ramps up the romance drama.
The summer anime season is almost upon us. I actually started one new show called Argevollen, but the rest is coming next week. This week was the finale for Black Bullet, but Captain Earth and Mahouka are staying for a few more weeks.
Nobunaga the Fool and Knight of Sidonia ended this week. Sidonia‘s ending was much better than Nobunaga. Black Bullet takes a dramatic turn, Captain Earth introduces a new enemy, and Mahouka is still having kids doing magical tournaments and the plot doesn’t move as fast as it should.
