The Wrap-Up: Winter 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.

Scum’s Wish Episode 8

Scum’s Wish Episode 7

For both Moca and Hanabi, going on a boring date with an insufferable jackass turns out to be the perfect antidote to their twisted pride. Whether that’s a good thing, however, that’s a whole other question.

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

We’re past the halfway point of this season already, which means it’s once again time to pick our favourite anime song of the season. With JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure absent from the lineup for the first time in what seems to be forever, the path is clear for a larger variety of songs to be featured, most of which from shows probably no one’s even watching.

No Scum’s Wish Coverage This Week…

… Because for the sake of my own mental health, I need to take a break from coming up with metaphors for how perverse watching this show spiral out of control makes me feel and getting angry at people on the Internet for still defending Ecchan. See you next week, if I haven’t died from vicarious shame by then.
