Can you believe the season is already half over? It sure has gone by quickly, and maybe that’s not a bad thing as I feel like many of the Roundup shows continue to underperform. I’ve nearly given up on Atom: The Beginning but I’m sure Sakura Quest, Bahamut, and Little Witch Academia will be in top form eventually. And hey, at least Tsukigakirei didn’t make me rage this week!
A dangerous new Creation appears, and each side of the conflict wants her on theirs.
We’re nearing the mid point of the season and even the best shows like Sakura Quest and Rage of Bahamut seem to be spinning their wheels a bit. I’m not too concerned but I do wish they’d get on with it already. At least Nina is providing me with an endless supply of faces to use for The Roundup header images.
Our heroes are dragged before a government subcommittee to explain what the dickens has been going on the past four episodes.
Everyone sits around for a whole episode and speculates on the rules governing the situation. For no particular reason, they turn out to be completely correct.
It seems #HATEWATCH is catching on as Re:Creators was bad enough for Iro to handle separately this week (stay tuned) and I’m quickly losing interest in Atom: The Beginning’s glacial pacing and flat writing. Marlin and I also almost turned on our favorite sleeper hit Tsukigakirei, but fortunately the rest of the Roundup is good enough to keep us motivated.
The slow but potentially good Atom: The Beginning joins the Roundup along with season 2 of The Eccentric Family, which has already proven its quality. Most everything else passes the three episode test save for Re:Creators, which Iro and I are still watching for some reason.
