Lifesong begins his mid season cuts, Argvollen and Rail Wars surprise Gee and Timmy respectively, and I try to convince myself that this week’s Sabagebu! is scathing social commentary.
Glasslip and Argevollen heat up plot wise and fan service-wise respectively while Sabagebu proves it’s both funny AND environmentally conscious. Who knew?
We hit the midpoint of the season and the entire crop of great comedies are still going strong. Locodol finally ends Sabagebu’s header image streak and no matter how frustrated he gets, Gee is still watching Argevollen and Aldnoah.Zero.
Casual murder continues to dominate this season as Akame ga kill! throws up death flags everywhere, Sabagebu! loses a few good men to some deadly toilet humor, and Locodol kills off some… chocolate tanukis?
Battle lines are drawn again over Aldnoah.Zero, Rail Wars! has even less trains and more boobs than usual, and Sabagebu! manages to make “may the force be with you” jokes funny again.
Our weekly coverage fills up as we (or should I say Lifesong) add a few new shows. Opinions continue to be split on Aldnoah.Zero but the flurry of oddly named upstart comedies stay unanimously entertaining.
Izumi Sena is born into a family of actors but has no desire to pursue acting himself. As he enters his first year of college, he’s a hardcore otaku that wants to be a manga artist, even though he has no talent for it. All of that changes when a chain of coincidences pairs him up in a commercial with the hottest young actor in Japan… oh, and he just happens to look stunning in makeup and a dress.
Part 2 of our Summer 2014 guide is headlined the provocative Terror in Resonance, one of the most bizarre premises ever with Railway Wars, and a few returning series like Persona 4 The Golden Animation… wait, that’s a remake? Already? Throw in a few MORE pretty boys (this time dressed as girls) and the Summertime fun continues.
