Marlin finally pulls the plug on Yona, Garo gets into some pantsless shenanigans, and seriously guys the Game Gear was great as long as you had the car adapter. At least Shirobako is still okay?
Shirobako keeps getting better as it drops some hard reality on us, Garo gets super weird, and Argvollen becomes so predictable that even I can guess the plot without watching a single episode,
Shirobako cements its place as The Roundup’s sleeper hit as Marlin gives it a second chance. Unfortunately most of the the other shows continue to flounder as Yona fights pacing issues, Argevollen stays irrelevant, and I am one blue hedgehog away from dropping SeHa Girls.
Most of the Glorio crew returns this week but unfortunately it’s to a mediocre batch of episodes. Marlin and I struggle to stick with SeHa Girls among other shows, but at least Aqua and Gee have Shirobako’s interesting topic of 2D vs. 3D animation to save this week from being a total wash.
Yona gives Marlin whiplash and Argevollen goes berserk on Gee. Iro survives a Log Horizon info dump while Aqua boos and hisses at Psycho-Pass. Chris is still ambivalent on Seven Deadly Sins while I’m 100% sure about my feelings for this week’s episode of SeHa Girls.
New season, new time slot, new format, new Roundup! Marlin is sticking with Akatsuki no Yona, Argevollen has somehow survived Gee’s cutting block, Aqua is getting Toku in our anime with Garo, Timmy is still eating the Fruit of Grisaia despite our warnings, Chris is keeping the shonen hope alive with Seven Deadly Sins, and I’m content watching 12 minute long Dreamcast commercials with Seha Girls. At least Log Horizon is still cool?
Yona is a spoiled princess who is way too into her cousin. That is, until he murders her dad and takes over the throne.
Jel’s a bit busy, and because he hates you almost as much as he loves me, he put me in charge of handling the rest of our preview guide for the upcoming fall system. That means twice as much unfiltered vitriol and more unwarranted music references than you can shake a stick at, but you’ll be glad to hear that even to me, this line-up doesn’t look to be complete rubbish. We have some high-concept fantasy blockbusters in Garo and Rage of Bahamut, a couple of shounen juggernauts in the making, and the glorious return of the best kids’ show that doesn’t involve Tony Stark partying all over the world.
