Part 2 of our guide features the much anticipated anime adaptation of The Promised Neverland and… not much else.
Part 1 of our guide features the latest version of Osamu Tezuka’s Dororo, a return of sorts for Boogiepop Phantom, and the latest isekai trash called Rising of the Shield Hero. There is also a show with a talking cat so it can’t be all that bad.
Following hot on the trail of our season preview podcast, Aqua, Iro, Zigg and Marlin have an in-depth look at the upcoming anime season. In this second and final part, we give our two cents on, amongst others, the new season of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Trigger’s foray into adapting tokusatsu, a show that desperately wants to be Princess Principal, and Kyoto Animation’s rare return to TV anime.
Following hot on the trail of our season preview podcast, Aqua, Iro, Zigg and Gee have an in-depth look at the upcoming anime season. In this first part, we give our two cents on, amongst others, the spiritual successor to Tiger & Bunny, a new project by the creator of the Zero Escape games and a clash for the ages between the two biggest light novel adaptations in anime history.
We’re deep into our First Looks but there are still a few shows we need to preview before they air later this week. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like things are going to improve… Part 3 of our guide is headlined by… uh.. UHHHH… P.A. Works is doing an action show? That’s all I got. I hate to have to ask this, but is Summer 2018 the worst season of the GLORIO era (since 2012)? What do you think?
Part 2 of our guide is a bit less grim if only because it contains less actively offensive content than Part 1. Cells at Work! looks like a fun, creative comedy and Planet With gives us an excuse to bring up cult favorite manga The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer. Other that? Meh. Please tell us we’re wrong and something here is worth looking forward to, and we’ll be back for Part 3 soon.
We tried to warn you on the podcast: the Summer 2018 anime season is looking a little rough. I don’t want to be too negative because we always finds shows that surprise us, but part 1 of our guide features forced sex changes, magic mind control slavery, big sister/little boy fetish stuff, and of course, lots of bouncing anime boobs… so yeah, we will have to look for some silver linings here. Let us know if there’s anything you think might actually be good, and we’ll see everyone for Part 2.
