Hello, and welcome to All Your Aquas, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard-earned cash on. This week it’s a bumper crop of our favorite blogging pal.
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.
Our heroes investigate a grisly murder at a creepy lakeside ghost house.
Mira tries to beautify her own little chunk of Kyoma’s pad and gets friendly with the local scamps.
Kyoma and Mira investigate the phantom thief known as “Loser”, infamous for repeatedly failing his heists.
In the future, humanity has created machines called “coils” that tap into “Dimension W” to produce effectively unlimited energy. Our technology-hating hero and his robot girl sidekick search for illegal, unlicensed coils, probably running into all sorts of trouble along the way.
The second part of our Winter 2016 Preview has a whole lot of game adaptations with Divine Gate, Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation, and Dogakobo attempting action again with Luck & Logic. There are a few unique looking shows though, with Shouwa Era Rakugo (someone please come up with a better title) looking like something for the grown-ups to watch and Dimension W attempting to appeal to us unworthy foreigners.
