It’s one of longest Roundups yet as Gee catches up with two weeks worth of Kino’s Journey and Marlin makes a surprise appearance. Most notably though, March Comes In Like a Lion delivers one of its best episodes and reminds us why I had it as an anime of the year contender. More of that please.
I feel like this ship is slowly sinking as many of our Roundup shows continue to be slightly disappointing. Not bad mind you, but flawed enough to dampen our fun. I mean, how else do you explain Classicaloid employing talking dogs and me not really enjoying it? At least Blood Blockade Battlefront is in top form and I think Anime-gataris has finally won me over, and it seems Just Because is doing well enough to join us this week. What’s everyone else think of the season so far?
At the start of the final semester of his second year, Eita returns to his hometown after a four year absence and reunites with his childhood friend Haruto. Meanwhile, their classmates have concerns of their own — ranging from clubs risking disbanding to unrequited loves.
The fall season is full of sequels both new and old, as well as a LOT of idol shows. Part 1 of our guide is headlined by the return of 2015’s smash hit Mr. Osomatsu and… well not much else, at least at first glance.
