So close to the end of the season, Garo, Log Horizon, and Shirobako set up to continue through Winter. Thankfully this does not include SeHa Girls which does little more than give us this week’s bizarre header image.
Video games rule this week as SeHa Girls manages a rare decent episode and Log Horizon shows us its actually about mutual respect between people with different opinions. Also, Garo and Shirobako are still good.
The lineup is thinning out as we approach the final few episodes of the season, but The Roundup is still going strong! Psycho Pass is conspicuously missing (more on that a bit later today), Garo reminds us that Rage of Bahamut isn’t the only rad show by Mappa this season, and Iro gets to yell DEEEEEEEEEEEN for the first time in a good long while.
Marlin finally pulls the plug on Yona, Garo gets into some pantsless shenanigans, and seriously guys the Game Gear was great as long as you had the car adapter. At least Shirobako is still okay?
Shirobako keeps getting better as it drops some hard reality on us, Garo gets super weird, and Argvollen becomes so predictable that even I can guess the plot without watching a single episode,
Shirobako cements its place as The Roundup’s sleeper hit as Marlin gives it a second chance. Unfortunately most of the the other shows continue to flounder as Yona fights pacing issues, Argevollen stays irrelevant, and I am one blue hedgehog away from dropping SeHa Girls.
Most of the Glorio crew returns this week but unfortunately it’s to a mediocre batch of episodes. Marlin and I struggle to stick with SeHa Girls among other shows, but at least Aqua and Gee have Shirobako’s interesting topic of 2D vs. 3D animation to save this week from being a total wash.
