Holy Shit, there are a lot of shows this season! Honest-to-god, 2018 has been an amazing year for anime so far well, aside from last season Last season was a little dry you had a few good shows here and there But this season is looking a lot better. We’ve got some promising new shows along with some fan favorites I know we’ve been waiting ages for the return of. That’s right boys after all this time, it’s finally back. The King has returned… It’s time… for Taiwanese fucking puppets! If you’re waiting for a punchline, there isn’t one… The show is actually awesome. Un-sarcastically. How do I say that without sounding sarcastic? Why??? Why d’you keep doing this, Japan??? This what you think we want?!?!? This is what you think we deserve!??!?!?!??! Because we said we liked Ero-manga sensei?? Is it our fault? Is it my fault?!??!?!?!?! *SOBS* OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE?? It’s like if Eromanga Sensei and OreImo had a secret incest baby yes, a fucking, deformed, incest baby they disowned, so it got raised by All you need is a sister until it grew up and got kicked out for taking off the Kiss x Sis I mean, I’m all for trash, but at least try to give me high grade, biodegradable quality trash not this low effort shit This ain’t no wincest, this is PUT-IT-IN-THE-FUCKING-BIN-CEST And I’m gonna need to see some ID from you! I see nothing wrong with that. Now before we really get stuck into it, there are many high profile shows this season that leads me to believe that many of you are gonna skip in the sports anime but trust me, there are a few to actually look out for: Run with the Winds is a new Production I.G sports anime, and if there’s one studio I trust with Sports anime, it’s Production I.G This feels like the Haikyuu spirit has truly been passed down with a much more character focused sports show even though it’s just about running, this time. with some beautiful animation and a cast chemistry I already like, I trust I.G to pull through with this one. Kyoto animation is also back with some more boys This time with a bit of Archer Free!. We’ve got a modern sumo anime. That is pretty fucking hype. I mean, you know Hype as two fat dudes slapping each other about can be NEW SWORD ART ONLINE, BABY! OH, YEAH. GIMME THAT YOUTUBE CASH honestly The first 20 minutes of this opening episode was a decent Fantasy setup that actually drew me in and got me invested in the world and everything that was happening, that it made me step back and ask, aww, shit is this… is this actually decent? And then five minutes later, is gracious enough to answer me with: AHAHA IT WAS JUST SWORD ART ONLINE ALL ALONG YOU WERE ACTUALLY INVESTED? *laughing coffin* Ever since Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online AKA SAO A hyphen GGO AKA Fort Stay Nite, I can’t help but laugh a bit that the franchise realizes the one way to make SAO better is to completely disconnect itself from everything its previously done and that seems exactly like what this new season is doing it’s like they just put a hard reset with new worlds and characters. And because of it, I’m actually intrigued where this new SAO goes, even if it still has the same edgelord Kirito in it Get some help. I’m not gonna dwell in this because I’ve already added my piece of the Goblin Slayer controversy Well, kinda I know must’ve been confusing to some of you because I wasn’t being very sarcastic in it But just to round out my thoughts I can see why Goblin Slayer is popular I do. If anything it fits in the space for people bored of the safe standard fantasy setting that became oversaturated through the Isekai genre. Even if the initial hook was based purely on shock factor. So yeah we’re just gonna have to wait and see if Goblin Slayer has more to do than just slaying goblins because we’re gonna have a new… …scale or I’m actually have it made digitally where it’s on a scale of Goblins, you know, is it charging into a goblins nest, hacking them to pieces or is it just going? You know around the goblins. Is it kissing goblins? even though you still stab them you get him a kiss or is it catching him in bed with a goblin? And then the final scale is gonna marry a goblin Speaking of Isekai there was a point last year When I thought isekai was gonna die down, but somehow it got even worse I swear this point people are just going to anime companies at random words they picked out the Hat like P R E G N A N C Y in another world I like it wait… you…you serio– Conception is about a guy gets transported to another world and has to get a bunch of women pregnant in order to Save the world. That is the premise. I am not lying I am not quite sure who needs to be fired more: the person who made this concept or the person who approved this concept just tell me what the point of this anime is Because you know if you wanted to make a hentai just make a fucking hentai that’s obviously what you want this to be and you know, I’d probably actually watch it if that was the case, but sometimes Somehow you get a stupid idea that works That Time I Got Reincarnated as A Slime is exactly what it sounds like and I’m pretty sure the premise came from the same creative process but somehow he has an infectious charm that just draws you in you can tell a lot of love and care has been put into this you have a world that is apparently Normal for other people to get transported to it Yeah A Tsundere dragon that’s not CG, animation is on point you find yourself actively cheering for this fucking slime to kick some ass and Find his harem of slime-loving pussy. It’s just an entertaining show god fucking damn it I thought I was done with isekai at this point What is this, Radiant? More like really ain’t Fairy Tail I’m kidding. It was just a joke. This is nothing like Fairy Tail. Okay, don’t kill me It was just a shitty comparison joke, and I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it What I meant to say was: What is this, Grey Clover? Fucking Netflix adaptations, man ANIME IS SAVED! Once again by Trigger for like the 20th fucking time now I don’t know. What does anime even need saving from anymore, themselves? I’ve got to be honest when I first saw the CG in the trailer for Gridman, I was like, Trigger Why? why would you betray me like this? butt Having watched that, I was reminded that this was meant to be based on the classic tokusatsu genre and the clunky CG actually captures this feel Perfectly because it feels like these could be costume characters, but just given a very shiny new lick of paint I absolutely love the art, atmosphere, and direction even if it can sometimes be a bit weird. Character designs get an S… S plus… S plus size… it’s just the perfect homage to tokusatsu, even if you didn’t grow up with it as a kid, I do highly recommend it And see, for all you getting confused why there are so many S’s in the name, The S is for those of you who are uninformed, Actually stand for Superhuman… If there’s one thing that drew me to the show from the get-go wasn’t the moe, wasn’t the high school It wasn’t the action spy thriller. It wasn’t the moe high school action spy thriller. It’s this funky ass soundtrack, man Oh, let me jam to this for a second Then we have this show with two cute girls talking about how they’ve never liked any boys and you know I didn’t know what the show was gonna be about when I started watching this cuz they um, They they really didn’t make it obvious. But, I gotta say the art looks really really pretty though I really don’t know where they’re gonna go with this one Could really be about anything Weird flex, but okay. What is this? A Monogatari/Oregairu ripoff? Yeah Okay, been there done that gonna take more than a simple bunny girl to impress me, guys. Oh, cute You’re ready trying with this dialog aren’t you? And um oh. Oh no I like the girl. Ohno I like the guy. Oh no I’m invested Wait. No. No, you didn’t prepare me. It’s it’s it’s only episode three. You’re not allowed to do this No, you didn’t give me time. I wasn’t expecting this No! Not the feels train anything but– I like this show I really like this show. The writing, the banter, the chemistry It just all took me by surprise because when I heard the concept I was like, All right, I don’t get it But whatever But before I knew it, I was invested as hell in these characters and I gotta say Monogatari vibes aside It’s got the most refreshing character relationships I’ve seen in anime in a very long time Mostly It has to remind me that it’s anime somehow right? God damn this anime looks beautiful. I mean, Jesus just look at these backgrounds
(Makoto Shinkai, is that you?) and to top this off, we’ve got a magical time-travel aesthetic feelsy show from the director of Nagi no Asukara with a dash of nostalgia bait?
