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.
Our first batch of Summer shows hit the Roundup with several Slice of Life surprises and mecha cliché disappointments. Throw in some extreme(ly censored) violence and it’s going to be a fun summer!
In an alternate universe where Japan’s rail system is still run by the government, a bunch of high school kids join the train security force.
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.
