Hi, I’m Artemis McBishiehots. You may remember me from such high quality articles as All Your Honies, and it’s a pleasure – nay, a privilege – to be handing out the awards tonight for the most memorable males who graced the screen in 2015. What, you thought all my dreams would wither like dried-up flowers…
Jel kicks off our annual year end tradition of recapping our highlights (and sometimes lowlights) of the year by sharing a few of his favorite moments of 2016.
Tis the season for zombies, vampires, blood, and vomiting or at least that’s what this week’s Roundup episodes would have you believe.
We sink our teeth into a whole lot of vampire action this week with Dance With Devils and Owarimonogatari exploring their respective backstories. That’s not necessarily a good thing. At least we always have Osomatsu-san and Miss Monochrome around to keep us amused.
On a very special episode of Mr. Osomatsu: Jyushimatsu learns the joy – and pain – of falling in love. It’s also one of the best episodes of the year. This is not a joke, I am totally serious.
Osomatsu tries to handle a murder mystery and it goes about as well as you’d expect, Dance With Devils takes itself slightly less serious for like 30 seconds, Miss Monochrome discovers the bonding power of Swan paddle boats, and after 8 episodes of behaving Owarimonogatari has to let out its pervy side a bit.
Pretty average week of mid-season episodes save for Dance With Devils pulling out its most amazingly ridiculous song yet. Can I write about it without referencing Ghost Trick or Tokyo Jungle? I guess not.
