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.
An abbreviated Roundup this week as some of the Glorio Crew is on the run. Iro narrowly avoids disappointment with Log Horizon, Gee hangs out with Shirobako, Aqua is appalled again by Psycho-Pass, and I’m mildly amused by SeHa Girls return to watchability.
Yona gives Marlin whiplash and Argevollen goes berserk on Gee. Iro survives a Log Horizon info dump while Aqua boos and hisses at Psycho-Pass. Chris is still ambivalent on Seven Deadly Sins while I’m 100% sure about my feelings for this week’s episode of SeHa Girls.
New season, new time slot, new format, new Roundup! Marlin is sticking with Akatsuki no Yona, Argevollen has somehow survived Gee’s cutting block, Aqua is getting Toku in our anime with Garo, Timmy is still eating the Fruit of Grisaia despite our warnings, Chris is keeping the shonen hope alive with Seven Deadly Sins, and I’m content watching 12 minute long Dreamcast commercials with Seha Girls. At least Log Horizon is still cool?
