We have a serious, nuanced, and mature discussion about the serious, nuanced, and mature anime of the Spring 2022 season.
Shinpei Ajiro is returning from Tokyo to his island home in Wakayama prefecture to attend the funeral of his childhood friend Ushio. Although Ushio supposedly died while saving a young girl from drowning, there were bruises around Ushio’s neck, making the exact cause of her death questionable. Meanwhile, doppelganger-like entities are supposedly haunting the island, and Shinpei keeps experiencing visions of a deceased Ushio asking him to save her younger sister Mio.
Another anime season is upon us! We chat about the Spring 2022 season, featuring a lot of romantic comedies and the resurrection of ancient properties like Tiger & Bunny and Black Rock Shooter.
