The Roundup this week is dedicated in loving memory to The Professor from Sakura Quest. Rest well, sir.
We add GAMERS! to the Roundup, another charming show that sounds terrible on paper that I will probably never convince another person to watch. It’s good, I promise!
With first episodes spanning over three weeks, we’re a bit late firing up the Roundup this season. But hey, we’re here now to talk about Welcome to the Ballroom, Restaurant to Another World, Fastest Finger First, and Kakegurui, plus catchup with Sakura Quest and Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul. Let’s do this!
Keita Amano is stunned to discover that the beautiful and popular student council president is an avid gamer. She scouts him for her video game club, and after meeting all the club members Keita must decide if he wants to join.

Kyou is a shut in who can barely speak above a whisper, but he’s so passionate about song writing that he posts his music online. A fan asks to meet him for a collaboration and to his surprise it turns out to be an elementary school girl. The girl and her two friends ask for Kyou’s help to set up a concert for their ophanage.
Haruto wakes up in a surreal dream world ruled by a powerful witch. Really weird stuff happens but sadly it makes more sense than you would think.
