There are times when you need to look at yourself in the mirror and ask, “is this worth it?”. That is what Wotakoi and Tada Never Falls In Love have made me ask the past few weeks and I’m afraid my answer at this point is “no”. Fortunately the rest of the Roundup shows are still pretty good, with Hinamatsuri in particular keeping its hot streak alive from last week and Amanchu somehow getting WEIRDER.
We’re already half way through the season and there’s a lot to look forward to as our Roundup shows pass the midpoint… well, unless you’re talking about Tada Never Falls in Love and Wotakoi, they might not survive much longer. ANYWAY, Hinamatsuri dropped one of the best episodes of the year this week and Amanchu! is taking a shocking turn that at the very least has us intrigued, so there’s certainly plenty to talk about.
This week proves I still know nothing about anime as the shows I was anticipating like Tada Never Falls in Love and Wotakoi are getting worse while the surprises like Real Girl and Last Period are getting better. Not sure if that will still be the case by the end of the season, but what I do know is that Hinamatsuri is still very good and you should watch that if you’re not already. Please.
HEY KIDS, welcome to another edition of The Roundup! While I come to terms with the fact that Pikari’s muppet face is terrifying out of context, enjoy another batch of anime episode reviews. Spoilers: Hinamatsuri is really good, Tada-kun is really bad.
We’re back! The Roundup returns to its regular format with Real Girl, Last Period, Steins;Gate 0, Tada Never Falls In Love, Wotakoi, Himamatsuri, and Amanchu. No fights to the death this time, just good ol’ fashion anime mini-reviews.
Tell your friends. Tell your enemies.
This episode is dedicated in loving memory to the Golden Kamuy anime.
Two friends who haven’t seen each other since middle school coincidentally end up working at the same office. They discover they are both still huge nerds and should probably date.
We survived the first week of the spring ANIMEPOCALYPSE, now let’s take a look at what’s coming up next week! Part 3 of our guide features the adaptation of popular cooking manga Golden Kamuy, a show with a cute dragon that turns into a fighter jet, and the long awaited return of classic mecha school comedy Full Metal Panic. Personally I’m betting I’ll be more into the show about adult nerds falling in love at the office, but either way we can say there’s plenty of things to watch.
