The Roundup: Winter 2018 Cute Anime BATTLE ROYALE Round 6

Love is in the air as School Babysitters and Takagi-san double down on their romantic plot lines.

March Comes In Like A Lion: Episode 38

Rei gets informed by the worried chairman. Even well after the match, he is consumed by the euphoria from his match with Souya, but Nikaidou’s return snaps him back to reality. Most importantly, the Kawamotos teach us how to make the best soft-boiled eggs and it is the best combination of good cooking and cuteness ever. Come fight me, Sweetness and Lightning.

How to Keep a Mummy, School Babysitters, and Takagi-san all do the “sick day” episode in the same week, which feels strangely appropriate as I’ve been fighting off a cold myself. Fortunately they were all pretty solid, which is more than I can see for Sanrio Boys and Mitsuboshi Colors this week. Will either of those be our next victim? Let’s fight it out.
