The Week in Anime Summer 2015 #1

Yes, yes, I realize it’s the month in anime at this point.


Charlotte: Imouto is dead. Best anime ever.

Gatchaman Crowds Insight: Loving this new season. I think it’s even better than the first. A very thought-provoking and original show. Who would have thought social media would lead to a dictatorship?

Symphogear:  I will continue to believe in justice and hold a determination to fist. I wish we could move beyond whining about how we want to protect everyone. But this season’s villains are pretty awesome at least. Sadly best girl died though…


Overlord: This one continues to delight me. I love the main character especially. He tries to be a heartless skeletal creature but fails miserably. He can’t even cut off the cute hamster’s leg.

Working!!!: It’s great how the story has actually made some progress this season! Seeing as how Season 2 was just a repeat of Season 1, I thought Season 3 would be as well. So far I’ve been pleasantly surprised.

Ushio and Tora: The last episode focusing on Ushio’s father was amazing. Some of the episodes have seemed to be in a demon of the week format, but when it turns around and delivers something like that, I can’t complain.


Arslan Senki: Ugh. Anime.  But seriously, this show’s been great.

Monster Musume: It’s been really boring lately. We’re at the point where I stopped reading the manga, and for the same reason.

Rokka no Yuusha: Absolutely loving this. Great atmosphere. I honestly have no idea who the bad guy(s) is(are). I kind of suspect it’s nobody…

Gate: Still enjoying it. I feel like it’s not developing the harem aspects enough though. I’m probably the only one who would complain about that…


Aquarion Logos: Absolutely nothing.

Chaos Dragon: I’ve changed my opinion on this. At first, I thought it was way too complex without enough character depth. Actually… I was right. But freckles girl is cute. 11/10. Also, it’s pretty funny how everyone keeps trying to suicide to use the main characters power.

Ranpo Kitan: It’s shows like this that keep me watching anime. Now, I’m not sure if Ranpo Kitan is even all that good of a show. But every time I watch an episode, my driving thought the entire time is “What. The. Fuck.” After the hundreds of shows I’ve watched, Ranpo Kitan continues to surprise me. That’s impressive.

Jitsu wa Watashi wa: Taking the opposite approach to Ranpo Kitan is Jitsu wa Watashi wa, which is as comfortable as can be and not particularly original at all. Yet, I continue to enjoy it as well.

Shimoneta: Greatest anime ever.

Prison School: Also the greatest anime ever.

  1. you should really watch god eater, if you liked garo its kinda the same, no real plot but a lot of cool fight scenes

  2. Ayumi actually makes an appearance in Angel Beats, so I think it’s confirmed that she’s not coming back, even though Misa should be able to get possessed by her if she had control of her power.

    Rokka no Yuusha is great, really. As one of the few shows I’m watching this season, I was mostly bored with the first few episodes but hung on until the plot thickened because of the synopsis. And thicken it did.
    There’s a NanoDesu translation project for Rokka, up to about halfway through the fourth LN. In every single book so far, I’ve been unable to guess who was the fake.

    1. Sadly imouto came back… *cries*

      Wow, I might be tempted to read the novel. Normally I’m disappointed by these things though.
