Say goodbye to the spring season as we say goodbye to SNAFU and Plastic Memories. It won’t be pretty. But hey, at least the good shows are continuing!
Jel delivers his eulogy for Mikagura School Suite and says sayonara to Ninja Slayer, but sadly not Plastic Memories. Meanwhile just about every other show is going for the Baker’s Dozen on episode count or continuing to next season, so it seems reports of the Summer 2015 Roundup’s demise were premature.
It’s the penultimate Spring 2015 Roundup as our shows prepare for their finales or mid-series climax. Dogakobo’s offerings continue to fizzle out, SNAFU gears up for a possible strong finish, and for better or worse My Love Story, Ninja Slayer, Moe Nagato, and Arslan begin to burrow in for next season.
Let’s hope the various Roundup shows are saving up some time and money for their final episodes as a whole lot of them got beat by the ugly stick. I’d expect that kind of thing from Ninja Slayer but when even Plastic Memories looks bad, something must be up.
My Love Story!! and Plastic Memories deliver the Dos and Don’ts of good romance stories while Mikagura School Suite has apparently fired their stuff and put the main character in charge. CUT! Seriously, who wrote that episode…
Maybe it’s the incoming Summer heat getting to us or I’m still coming down from the high of Sound! Euphonium episode 8, but a lot shows this week felt like they were just going through the motions. Fortunately the Bromance of My Love Story!! and the unique fantasy of Arslan can still hold things down while the other series aren’t at their best.
My frustration with Dogakobo grows as other shows like SNAFU and Arslan quietly do their thing and do it well. Maybe I chose the wrong shows this season? Also, My Love Story MIGHT have a lawsuit on their hands after stealing the Rocky training montage music.
