After running for shelter during a rain storm, Moriko hangs out at Sakurai’s apartment for the day. The episode is so adorable that my heart stopped and I had to be resuscitated to write this.
Ryuga finally graduates to full on Rider-dom, joining the fray as Kamen Rider Cross-Z!
HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? It’s the totally young and hip Jel here bringing you the latest anime hot takes and not fumbling to make a reference to Iyami doing his best Steve Buscemi impersonation… ANYWAY, anime was good this week, enjoy The Roundup.
Miyako’s birthday comes around and Haruto wants to hit on her. Will I ever be freed of this Sisyphean nightmare?
Both Sakurai and Moriko remember their time playing NanterSG and how important their friendship was. Sakurai creates a new character and decides to model him after the one in the previous game, hoping that Moriko will recognize him.
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.
There are three casual references to rape in this episode. This is supposed to be funny. Or titilating. Or maybe both. By resurrecting #HATEWATCH, I opened the door to a man-made darkness the likes of which have never been seen.
While Sakurai continues to sort out his feelings, Koiwai signs up for the game and asks Moriko to teach him how to play. Moriko creates an alternate starter character to help him out, but things get complicated when they run into Kanbe.
