Say goodbye to all the high school related titles as School Live, Prison School, and Classroom Crisis come to a conclusion, as well as a “see you later” to Miss Monochrome as we’ll see her next season.
Polar opposite reactions this week as we rave about School Live’s stellar penultimate episode and I finally let out my bottled up rage I’ve been carrying from 12 episodes of Classroom Crisis. Sadly, it’s not even the last episode.
I must be in a bad mood today because nearly every Early Edition show delivers this week and yet I still find reasons to complain. School Live pays the price for all the fun it had last week, Ushio and Tora asks us to peep game, Miss Monochrome goes virus hunting, Prison School adapts the funniest chapter of the manga, and Classroom Crisis actually has people making out. Should be good times, right?
Artemis returns (woo) just in time to join me and Marlin in trashing School Live’s pool episode. I’m sure that will just be a one time thing, but my growing hatred for Classroom Crisis is a real, weekly event. At least I have a new crazy Miss Monochrome theory to work on?
The Early Edition gears up for the final stretch of the season with School Live and Prison School delivering late season twists. Miss Monochrome remains great but sadly, Classroom Crisis is bad again.
A bit of a slow week for School Live and Classroom Crisis, but Ushio and Tora has a fight on an airplane and Miss Monochrome has a bizarre, vaguely inappropriate relationship with an anthropomorphized battery. ANIME!
A strong week for the Early Edition as School Live reveals the fate of our favorite teacher, Miss Monochrome exposes the seedy underbelly of the idol industry, and Classroom Crisis continues its slow crawl to respectability. Also, Prison School has boner jokes? OK, I went one bullet point too far.
Can you believe the season is already half over? Fortunately our Roundup shows are still going strong with School Live! leading the pack in the Early edition. Even Classroom Crisis is starting to win me over somehow, with a solid enough mid point episode to keep it off the chopping block.
It’s summer fun time in the Early Edition of the Roundup! Classroom Crisis is already resorting to the beach episode (pun intended) and School Live! spends a fun afternoon at the mall. No violence!
Things are looking grim for the Early Edition as Chaos Dragon becomes our first casualty of the season and many of the other shows aren’t quite up to par. Ironically we have School Live confirming it is, in fact, the darkest timeline and Prison School turning out to be quite funny. Who’d have guessed that?
50% of the Roundup Early Edition shows now have “School” in the title as we add the deliciously dark School Live! and the eccentric Prison School. OK fine one of them is actually “classroom” but close enough. Meanwhile, Chaos Dragon, Ushio and Tora, and Classroom Crisis trip up a bit but hey, Miss Monochrome is still great!
Hachimitsu Academy is one of the most famous all-girls schools in Japan, known for both its high pedigree and strict rules. Kiyoshi Fujino along with Takehito “Gakuto” Morokuzu, Shingo Wakamoto, Jouji “Joe” Nezu, and Reiji “Andre” Andou are the first male students ever admitted to Hachimitsu. But when a series of perverted incidents ends up with them incarcerated in the school’s private prison, their willpower and desire for freedom will be put to the test.
Part 3 of our Summer 2015 Anime Guide is basically a formality for me to talk about my most anticipated show of the season, Gatchaman Crowds Inisght. Hopefully the surreal, colorful look at life in the Social Media Age will be the sequel we never knew we needed. As for the rest of it, well, despite what Gee tells me about Prison School I can’t say we saved the best for last. But, who knows? Maybe Bikini Warriors and Pillow Boys will turn out to be new anime classics! Take a look and let us know what you think looks watchable.
