The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 6

We’re into the second half of the spring season and not a lot has changed. Our favorite shows continue to tread water to the point where even the already snail paced Tsukigakirei throws in a completely unwarranted recap episode. We’ll keep holding on to hope that things will pick up eventually though, and remember, it could always be worse…

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 5

Can you believe the season is already half over? It sure has gone by quickly, and maybe that’s not a bad thing as I feel like many of the Roundup shows continue to underperform. I’ve nearly given up on Atom: The Beginning but I’m sure Sakura Quest, Bahamut, and Little Witch Academia will be in top form eventually. And hey, at least Tsukigakirei didn’t make me rage this week!

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 4

We’re nearing the mid point of the season and even the best shows like Sakura Quest and Rage of Bahamut seem to be spinning their wheels a bit. I’m not too concerned but I do wish they’d get on with it already. At least Nina is providing me with an endless supply of faces to use for The Roundup header images.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 3

It seems #HATEWATCH is catching on as Re:Creators was bad enough for Iro to handle separately this week (stay tuned) and I’m quickly losing interest in Atom: The Beginning’s glacial pacing and flat writing. Marlin and I also almost turned on our favorite sleeper hit Tsukigakirei, but fortunately the rest of the Roundup is good enough to keep us motivated.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 2

The slow but potentially good Atom: The Beginning joins the Roundup along with season 2 of The Eccentric Family, which has already proven its quality. Most everything else passes the three episode test save for Re:Creators, which Iro and I are still watching for some reason.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 1

Despite what you may have read in our first looks at the spring season, we do still like anime! We’re kicking off the next Roundup with Sakura Quest, Tsukigakirei, Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul, Re:Creators, and the return of Little Witch Academia. Who knows, maybe we’ll even add a few extra after we catch more second episodes. Stay tuned.
