Hi, I’m Artemis McBishiehots. You may remember me from such high quality articles as All Your Honies, and it’s a pleasure – nay, a privilege – to be handing out the awards tonight for the most memorable males who graced the screen in 2015. What, you thought all my dreams would wither like dried-up flowers…
Love is over as we bid farewell to Snow White and My Love Story!, or at least until next week’s episode of Working!!! We sure did have a lot of romance in this edition of The Roundup over the past few weeks, we may need to resuscitate Marlin.
Kind of ironic that in the week that My Love Story! takes an episode off the rest of the Roundup delivers in the romance department. Both Working!!! and Snow White have us squeeing like fan girls as actual progress is made in key relationships. How revolutionary. Oh and Gatchaman Crowds Insight? Still awesome.
Don’t believe Takeo’s shirt: My Love Story!! did not do a good job this week, nor did Working!!! which barely redeems itself in its last few minutes, or Durarara!! which didn’t even bother airing an episode. Fortunately Gatchaman Crowds Insight ups the intensity and Snow White finally makes a move.
Bad news: Summer is over. Worse news: Summer season is not yet over. As you might have been able to tell from the dearth of content, the current anime load-out hasn’t really managed to swipe us off our feet. A more satisfactory review awaits you in a few weeks, but now that we’re halfway through the season already, the members of our merry crew have had more than enough time to pick their favourite anime song of the season. That is, if they even watched anything at all this season.
Gatchaman Crowds Insight makes its triumphant return after last week’s hiatus, Working!!! is still pretty great this season, and not much else. At least My Love Story! has given me and Marlin reason to keep the S.S. Team Saijou afloat… for now.
An abbreviated Late Edition this week as Gatchaman Crowds Insight takes an episode off. That makes me very sad. Meanwhile, Durarara reminds us to hate Izaya, Working tries to do a little too much for one episode, Snow White has too many flashbacks, and My Love Story might be sinking my favorite ship. At least Insight will be back next week?
Another day at the office for the Late Edition as Durarara!! keeps busy, Working!!! continues its streak of loose end tying, and Insight gives me the opportunity to get off as many “Deez Nuts” jokes as possible.
Gangsta returns to the Roundup with mixed results, Working!!! continues to make stunning amounts of plot progress, and My Love Story! devotes an episode to the rarest of anime rarities: parents that aren’t horrible people, living abroad, or dead.
The smell of animated beef patties, the hum of cicadas and the breeze from the giant monster battle occurring off-screen. That’s right, it’s the half time show! The Glorio Rabble have put their heads together to let you know what’s worth your valuable time, in a world where first episodes are high budget and mid-season turns filler if left out in…
Me, Iro, Euri, and Marlin frantically flail about as we try to fill in for Artemis while she’s away. Fortunately it’s a good week as old favorites Durarara!! and Working!!! are on their game, Snow White and My Love Story continue to be adorable, and Crowds drops the mic with some hot social commentary. Good times!
Love prevails as many of this week’s episodes feature romance to one degree or another. Whether you prefer the dysfunctional, roundabout relationships of Durarara!! and Working!!! or the more easy going vibe of Snow White and My Love Story!, there’s something for everyone. Also, Gatchaman Crowds Insight is still really good.
HEY GUYS AND GALS – Gatchaman Crowds Insight is really good, but also a solid week overall for the Late Edition. Every episode is at least decent, if not great, and perhaps most importantly My Love Story! returns to having the best header images.
We launch the Late Edition of the Roundup with Working!!!, Gatchaman Crowds: Insight, Gangsta, Snow White with the Red Hair, Non Non Biyori Repeat, and the return of Durarara!! X2 and My Love Story.
The second season of Non Non Biyori, a slice-of-life series set in a tiny Japanese countryside village.
