Artemis is out this week so I’m doing my best to hold down The Roundup on my own. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our weekly wave of feel good comedies, with a side of me ranting about Twin Star Exorcists for possibly the last time.
We’re dropping shows all over the place and I’m still mad at Twin Star Exorcists, but The Roundup carries on. I have accepted Bakuon!! as our lord and savior, Luluco and Joker game are doing there thing, and Tanaka-kun and Three Leaves, Three Colors (we need a good short name for that) just make you feel good.
Another round of cuts and me raging about Twin Star Exorcists earlier in the week will have The Roundup looking a bit thinner, but fortunately the return of Sakamoto and a solid performance from the rest of the line up keep things positive.
Seems like Spring is going to be the season for relaxing with some fun, light hearted comedies as they pretty much dominate The Roundup. I am OK with this. Even so, a couple shows are already in danger of getting the axe, can you guess which ones it will be?
The year is 1937 and Lieutenant-Colonel Yuuki has formed a team of spies, none of whom have a background in the military but all of whom are highly trained and skilled in the arts of manipulation. Known as the “D Agency”, these antihero agents are tasked with conducting various operations in the midst of – a possibly fictitious version of? – the second Sino-Japanese War.
Part 2 of our guide features some potential big hits in the visually stunning Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and the shonen mass appeal of Twin Star Exorcists. Throw in some super cool pre-war era style with Joker Game, a healthy dose of urban fantasy with Bungou Stray Dogs, and some absurdist comedy with Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto, and this season is looking pretty good… well, except for Netoge, which could turn out to be one of the worst show in years.
