Did your favorite shows make the cut? What did we choose for #1 and why is it Eromanga-sensei? Read on!
If you go about doing a season preview, it is only obvious you also close off on a season review. In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which…
A bit of an abbreviated Roundup this week as Marlin is out and there’s no new episode of Atom: The Beginning for better or worse. Fortunately my two favorite shows, Sakura Quest and Virgin Soul, deliver the goods we’ve been waiting for. Bahamut fans, you already know what I mean.
We’re somewhere vaguely halfway into the Spring season again, so here we are again to tell you which opening sequences and ending themes we didn’t skip after the first episode this time around! This time around, hamburgers, holiday pictures and HEAVY METAL.
We’re into the second half of the spring season and not a lot has changed. Our favorite shows continue to tread water to the point where even the already snail paced Tsukigakirei throws in a completely unwarranted recap episode. We’ll keep holding on to hope that things will pick up eventually though, and remember, it could always be worse…
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!
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.
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.
Time has passed. Benten has gone on a mysterious journey while life returns to normal for the Shimogamo family. Everything seems to be going smoothly until one day the Nidaime, Professor Akadama’ estranged son, returns to Kyoto. With a fight between two powerful Tengu looming, things are about to change in the sleepy city. Have no idea what I’m talking about? Watch the first season.
Part 3 features the new series by Oreimo’s Tsukasa Fushimi, Eromanga Sensei, and so by default is the worst part of the preview guide. Fortunately it also features the return The Eccentric Family, which I must admit has been sitting at the top of my backlog for quite some time. There’s also an unusually high amount shows coming back this season that we we wouldn’t normally cover, so let us know if we are missing out on anything good.
If you’re a regular reader or you’ve been following our 9 Days of Glorio coverage, it’s pretty clear our writers have a wide range of opinions and perspectives – so wide, in fact, that despite using a mathematically sound voting system for our top 10 anime we somehow ended up with 11 entries! Nevertheless, our…

With Yashiro free, he goes to the only help left. As the False Eizan Electric Railway winds through town, will the brothers be able to save Yasaburo and Yaichiro in time?
The Ebisugawas continue to enact their plan as Yasaburo tries to track down the Friday Fellows and save Yaichiro.
As the day of the Nise-emon elections comes around, the Ebisugawa’s spring their trap. As Kaisei comes to warn Yasaburo, she also reveals the truth of the night that claimed his father’s life.
The Shimogamo brothers learn the truth of the night their father died. Determined to move past it, Yaichiro is determined to be elected as the next leader of the tanuki.
The boys force the Professor to go take a bath. When most anime would use this kind of set-up for sexy shenanigans, it’s played straight until Kinkaku and Ginkaku come in to deal a heavy truth to the Shimogamo boys.
