The bodies are piling up as we approach the mid-point of the battle. A Place Further Than the Universe continues to intimidate the competition, but the fighting is fierce between just about everyone else. With Ms. Koizumi and Laid Back Camp slowly winning me over and School Babysitters always managing to pull out last minute saves, the next few weeks are going to be rough.
How to Keep a Mummy, School Babysitters, and Takagi-san all do the “sick day” episode in the same week, which feels strangely appropriate as I’ve been fighting off a cold myself. Fortunately they were all pretty solid, which is more than I can see for Sanrio Boys and Mitsuboshi Colors this week. Will either of those be our next victim? Let’s fight it out.
Contenders School Babysitters and Takagi-san hit their first missteps, we still can’t decide a good short name for A Place Further Than the Universe (I’m partial to South Pole Girls), and most importantly, we pick up a corporate sponsor!
Ten cute shows drop on an adorable little island…
Kashiwagi Sora lives at home by himself, though his dad regularly sends him gifts from abroad. The latest in a series of strange and supernatural deliveries is a mummy from Egypt. It’s kinda cute.
THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE
Yes, I know new shows are already starting and we’re already putting out first looks, but there are still a few shows to preview. Part 3 of our guide is headlined by Darling In the FranXX, a big name collaboration between Trigger and A-1 Pictures. We also have yet another Fate project, this time in the hands of the infamous Shaft director Akiyuki Shinbo. Will they be good? Maybe not, but definitely worth keeping an eye on.
