Jel, Gee, and Marlin take a look at the upcoming shows for the winter season, including a new show that may be a successor to the classic space opera series we can’t shut up about, Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
Jel, Iro, Gee, and Aqua go way overtime as we reluctantly say BYE BYE to the very solid Spring 2018 anime season.
In our final Roundup of the season, we say goodbye to Real Girl (for now), Hinamatsuri (for now?), and Amanchu. Enjoy them while you can, next season is looking rough.
It’s business as usual for all the Roundup shows, despite the fact that there’s only one episode left for most of them. I will also have to start preparing for life without any new Hinamatsuri episodes to look forward to.
Remember about a year or two ago when Samsung had to recall the Galaxy Note 7 because there was a chance the battery would explode? Last Period did an entire episode about it and I don’t feel like I can talk about anything else that happened in The Roundup this week. Well, that and the Kamen Rider cameo in Hinamatsuri.
It’s an extra large edition of the Roundup as things get weird and we have a lot to say about it. We we were already deep into Amanchu’s bizarre fantasy turn but I was definitely not expecting Last Period to bring up North Korea and Japanese rearmament. Yeah, it’s that kind of week.
We’ve trimmed the fat and the Roundup is looking a bit leaner, but we’re making up for quantity with quality. Steins;Gate 0 hits us with some major twists this week, Last Period delivers its usual hard hitting social and political commentary, and Amanchu! continues its baffling descent into madness. Oh, and of course Hinamatsuri is still REALLY GOOD.
