We are moving the Roundup to Fridays which means a double dose of Dragon Maid this week, for better or worse. While that show continues to frustrate me, it’s a solid week for the rest of the lineup with March Comes In Like a Lion delivering its best episode of the second half. With all these shows still being pretty good nearly halfway through, maybe this season isn’t as bad as we thought it would be?
That dumb Dragon Maid show turns into Non Non Biyori, Seiren hits the reset button, the writers of Classicaloid are on a lot of drugs, and Interviews With Monster Girls gives me yet another excuse to mention bettermyths.
More debate this week as Gee and I disagree on this season’s premier weird and awkward teenage romance anime – no, not that one, I mean the ending of Seiren’s first story arc. Also, has Interviews with Monster Girls finally hit the wall and become the dumb harem show we originally thought it would be? Join us and discuss.
Week 2 of the Winter Roundup fills in a bit as we welcome (sort of) Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid and Seiren, plus a shout out to Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu’s second sesaon. Also, Artemis and I actually disagree on something!
WE’RE BACK! Classicaloid and March Comes In Like a Lion return for the first installment of the Winter 2017 Roundup, joined by Onihei, Interviews with Monster Girls, and a new feature: The Little Witch Academia GIF of the week. We’ll have more shows next week as more second episodes air, so stay tuned.
After being the stuff of legends for centuries, demi-humans are on the long and arduous path towards integration in human society. Dedicated to distinguish truth from myth, biology teacher Tetsuo Takahashi would love to write his PhD on these “demis”, but has never met one in real life. That all changes when his new colleague outs herself as a succubus and one of his students introduces him to a girl without a head.
Let’s do a little math. 2016 in general = bad. 2016 anime = good. Using that formula and checking out next season’s shows, 2017 is looking to be a really good year. There will be some good continuing shows a few things that don’t look embarassingly bad, but as a whole the batch of new shows is looking rough. Still, it is our duty to carry on and sort through the trash so you don’t have to, and we always manage to find a few surprises. Take a look at part 1 of our Winter preview guide and let us know if you agree.
