Artemis is out this week so I’m doing my best to hold down The Roundup on my own. So sit back, relax, and enjoy our weekly wave of feel good comedies, with a side of me ranting about Twin Star Exorcists for possibly the last time.
We’re dropping shows all over the place and I’m still mad at Twin Star Exorcists, but The Roundup carries on. I have accepted Bakuon!! as our lord and savior, Luluco and Joker game are doing there thing, and Tanaka-kun and Three Leaves, Three Colors (we need a good short name for that) just make you feel good.
Ryougo and the Seita dorm crew head out for a routine exorcism, but it turns out to be more than they can handle. Rokuro is left with no choice but to ask Benio for help and the two set out to save him.
Another round of cuts and me raging about Twin Star Exorcists earlier in the week will have The Roundup looking a bit thinner, but fortunately the return of Sakamoto and a solid performance from the rest of the line up keep things positive.
Benio begins attending school with Rokuro and causes a stir among his classmates. While his buddies go off to investigate a large impurity, Rokuro decides to hang out at an amusement park with his long time friend Mayura.
Seems like Spring is going to be the season for relaxing with some fun, light hearted comedies as they pretty much dominate The Roundup. I am OK with this. Even so, a couple shows are already in danger of getting the axe, can you guess which ones it will be?
Impurities from the parallel world of Magano have been slipping into the real world and only powerful exorcists can stop them. Two of these exorcists meet seemingly by chance – a boy who has given up on his training and a girl who has sworn to destroy every last impurity in Magano.
Part 2 of our guide features some potential big hits in the visually stunning Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and the shonen mass appeal of Twin Star Exorcists. Throw in some super cool pre-war era style with Joker Game, a healthy dose of urban fantasy with Bungou Stray Dogs, and some absurdist comedy with Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto, and this season is looking pretty good… well, except for Netoge, which could turn out to be one of the worst show in years.
