If you live in the US, chances are at some point today you’ll be super tired after stuffing your face with food and looking for a way to get out of talking to your family. Sounds like a good time to join the Roundup and talk about anime instead! Even better, there’s some really good episodes this week including what’s for my money the best episode of Osomatsu season 2 yet. So shake off that food coma and get in here.
This is literally the most disgusting thing I’ve ever watched.
Moriko learns she showed up on the wrong day for her date with Koiwai so she has dinner with Sakurai instead. Misreading the situation, Sakurai backs off and Moriko still goes on her date with Koiwai the next day. Also, Marlin joins us this week and I try to subliminally sabotage his argument with my choice of screencaps.
It’s one of longest Roundups yet as Gee catches up with two weeks worth of Kino’s Journey and Marlin makes a surprise appearance. Most notably though, March Comes In Like a Lion delivers one of its best episodes and reminds us why I had it as an anime of the year contender. More of that please.
Itsuki finally ends up where he belongs, a prison cell fit for war criminals.
As Moriko prepares for her date with Koiwai, she decides to meet up in-game with Kazuomi, the boy at the convenience store. Yuta is still not convinced that Hayashi is Moriko, but he can’t ignore his curiosity.
As GLORIO’s official Type-Moon fan as well as a SoCal local, I was legally obligated to attend the USA premiere of the newest UFOtable Fate project, a film adaptation of Heaven’s Feel, the original visual novel’s third and final route. Or, to be more accurate, the first of three film adaptations of Heaven’s Feel. So, naturally, I bound and gagged fellow crewmember Gee-Man in my passenger’s seat and braved the infinite perils of downtown Los Angeles to discover if it was all worth the wait.
I feel like this ship is slowly sinking as many of our Roundup shows continue to be slightly disappointing. Not bad mind you, but flawed enough to dampen our fun. I mean, how else do you explain Classicaloid employing talking dogs and me not really enjoying it? At least Blood Blockade Battlefront is in top form and I think Anime-gataris has finally won me over, and it seems Just Because is doing well enough to join us this week. What’s everyone else think of the season so far?
