We’re into the second half of the spring season and not a lot has changed. Our favorite shows continue to tread water to the point where even the already snail paced Tsukigakirei throws in a completely unwarranted recap episode. We’ll keep holding on to hope that things will pick up eventually though, and remember, it could always be worse…
Can you believe the season is already half over? It sure has gone by quickly, and maybe that’s not a bad thing as I feel like many of the Roundup shows continue to underperform. I’ve nearly given up on Atom: The Beginning but I’m sure Sakura Quest, Bahamut, and Little Witch Academia will be in top form eventually. And hey, at least Tsukigakirei didn’t make me rage this week!
A dangerous new Creation appears, and each side of the conflict wants her on theirs.
While waiting for their airship ride home, Willem and the girls meet a lycanthrope woman who is seeking help from the military. A local gang is threatening to assassinate her father, who is trying to pass a bill supporting the rights of disfeatured people in the city.
Sometimes a show comes along that just deserves to be eviscerated. Perhaps it showcases the worst of anime’s stereotypes. Perhaps it takes an interesting premise and ruins it with befuddling plots or infuriating character arcs. Perhaps you think a show should literally be labelled a war crime by the Geneva Convention. That’s where the HATEWATCH…
We’re nearing the mid point of the season and even the best shows like Sakura Quest and Rage of Bahamut seem to be spinning their wheels a bit. I’m not too concerned but I do wish they’d get on with it already. At least Nina is providing me with an endless supply of faces to use for The Roundup header images.
Our heroes are dragged before a government subcommittee to explain what the dickens has been going on the past four episodes.
Weeks have passed with no news on Ctholly’s mission. Willem is anxious but continues to keep up with his work. He escorts Tiat to the hospital for a check up. She is awakening to her powers and needs to begin her training.
