The Catch-Up: Fall 2017

After The Wrap-Up and The Roundup, it’s time for The Catch-Up! Because it’s a bit silly to write a ‘first look’ post on shows that aren’t technically new, The Catch-Up gathers our brief impressions on new seasons of returning shows and reminds readers what we thought about their earlier installments. Join us as we answer such important questions as “Will Blood Blockade Battlefront still be good without Rie Matsumoto?”, “Will ClassicaLoid still be good without the great Bach-sama?” and most importantly, “Will the Glorio Blog still be good without Aqua’s weekly struggle with Love Live Sunshine!!?” We reserve the right to change our answer to any of these at any time.

First Look: Just Because!

At the start of the final semester of his second year, Eita returns to his hometown after a four year absence and reunites with his childhood friend Haruto. Meanwhile, their classmates have concerns of their own — ranging from clubs risking disbanding to unrequited loves.

The Wrap-Up: Summer 2017

If you go about doing a season preview, it is only obvious you also close off on a season review. In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which shows let us down the most. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Summer 2017

Bad news! Summer is over! Good news! That means we’ll be telling you about our favourite anime songs of the season again! Scant consolation, probably, but hey, since when is that our job? Regardless, we have another diverse lineup for you, with gratuitous sex jazz, spy prog, minimal hip-house and a dash of fairy pop. All of these are totally real genres. Look them up.

Our Two Cents: Forgotten Gems

Sometimes a show manages to find a place in our hearts even when it’s been denied access to the collective consciousness. In the first instalment of our new monthly feature, Zigg, Iro, Aqua, Gee, Euri, and Artemis throw in their two cents on which all-but forgotten anime they still hold dear.
