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.
Yu Otosaka has the power to possess any other person for up to five seconds. Using this ability to ogle girls, exact revenge and cheat his way into a prestigious high school, he quickly grows into an insufferable asshole. However, his life of luxury quickly turns sour when the student council catches wind of his chicanery and transfers Yu away to the neighboring Hoshinoumi Academy, a school for superpowered teens such as himself.
The Glorio anime preview continues as we thread ever closer to the upcoming summer season. In the likely event that part one featured nothing for you to be excited for, this half of the lineup provides more limitless potential with the unlikely resurrection of Working!! and the even more surprising return of Dragon Ball to your television screen. For fans of even more screaming, Key is unleashing Charlotte, their first original anime project since Angel Beats!, while God Eater takes up the mantle of this season’s obligatory video game adaptation. Also present are an obligatory shoujo romance, an obligatory light novel adaptation about being stuck in a video game and the obligatory results of frenetic lobbying by the International Association of Teratogynophiliacs. It all sounds so uninteresting, it’s almost as if anime itself is telling us to go outside. But hey, if you’re excited for something, be sure to let us know.
