Normally we’d be starting our weekly roundup about now, but as I was getting that organized I noticed a pattern: nearly every new anime worth watching is a cute, innocent slice of life and/or comedy without a whole lot of substance. I don’t mind writing about one or two of those every week, but honestly any more than that would be too much. So to spice things up, we’re going to grab all these sweet and friendly shows and pit them against each other in a fight to the DEATH. Yes, I present to you The Roundup: Winter 2018 Cute Anime BATTLE ROYALE edition!
Each week I will watch every cute series on our list. The best show that week will be safe for the following week. The worst show will be dropped, never to be spoken of again. It’s that simple. So who are the early favorites? Who will get cut in the first round? Start placing your bets now, and we’ll see you next week.
