Saving the worst for last.
In this week’s installment… The New Year may be already upon us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take one last look at the end of this season. In this volume we have two surprise contributors, one welcome and one… well let’s just say they should have worked on it more.
Tis the season for zombies, vampires, blood, and vomiting or at least that’s what this week’s Roundup episodes would have you believe.
We sink our teeth into a whole lot of vampire action this week with Dance With Devils and Owarimonogatari exploring their respective backstories. That’s not necessarily a good thing. At least we always have Osomatsu-san and Miss Monochrome around to keep us amused.
On a very special episode of Mr. Osomatsu: Jyushimatsu learns the joy – and pain – of falling in love. It’s also one of the best episodes of the year. This is not a joke, I am totally serious.
We’re halfway through the Fall season, somewhat, maybe, so we’ve heard the theme songs of this quarter’s anime enough to decide which one we like the most.
Osomatsu tries to handle a murder mystery and it goes about as well as you’d expect, Dance With Devils takes itself slightly less serious for like 30 seconds, Miss Monochrome discovers the bonding power of Swan paddle boats, and after 8 episodes of behaving Owarimonogatari has to let out its pervy side a bit.
