How goes it? SO MANY OF MY SHOWS ARE ENDING AND I AM FULL OF FEELS.
Okay there, Mr. Caps, settle down, compose yourself… I’m good, I’m fine, I just have so many emotions!
Right so did you want to talk about them here? Well I’ll keep full season reviews to their respective posts, and of course I’ll have a run down of all the Winter 2018 anime in a seperate post at the end of the month, but I can talk about episodes on their own…
Well okay then, how was the seasonal stuff this week? A Place Further Than The Universe wins best of the week, and it wasn’t even it’s finale (that comes next week) it was so raw and open and emotional, I was a wreck. I don’t care who you are or what kind of anime you like you need to watch that show. Slow Start teased Eiko x Teacher for the last time (but hopefully not the last time—if you know what I mean). Everything else was as expected.
Oh and didn’t Marchen Madchen come back from it’s hiatus? —I don’t want to talk about it!
Cool, so th— Wait! I almost forgot Dagashi Kashi 2, damn this show keeps going from strength to strength, it started out as this silly show about Japanese snack foods and has slowly but surely morphed into a compelling character drama, yes I said drama, things got pretty damn dramatic here, but I’m still pissed off it’s a 12 minute per episode series instead of 24 minute one like the first season.
—Kay… So what other anime did you watch? I started watching a bunch of other Winter 2018 anime that I, for whatever reason didn’t start as week-to-week shows, so basically playing catch up! I started Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens, Kokkoku and The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! I have very complicated and varied thoughts on all these shows, but that will have to wait ’til I review them! Also I started Amanchu in preparation for its 2nd season that starts soon!
Busy busy! But lovin’ every minute of it!
So any anime merch this week? Did you see the week before? No… no merch for a while.
Fair enough, what about manga then? *exceptionally high voice* mmm maybe just a little!
Uh-huh… how many then? Okay, so maybe like twenty—
TWENTY! I thought you were unemployed?! And I thought you were SHUT UP!
Ugh, fine just tell me what you got… Right, so: Bloom Into You 3 & 4, Dragonar Academy 1, The Flowers of Evil Omnibus 1, How To Build A Dungeon: Book of the Demon King 2 & 3, Hybrid x Heart: Magias Academy Atraxia 1, Kaguya-Sama Love Is War 1, Magicka Swordsmen and Summoner 2, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid 1-4, Murcielago 3, Nameless Asterism 1, No Matter How I Look At It It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular 4 (finally have all of them!), Shomin Sample 3 & 5 (2 & 4 should be here next week), Testament of Sister New Devil: Storm 1 and Val x Love 1.
Yikes! You weren’t kidding were you?! I never joke about manga; serious business.
Uh-huh. And what manga did you read? *nods* I read, Bloom Into You 2 which keeps getting better. I’m really looking forward to how far their relationship goes! I read Dragonar Academy 1, which was great fun but I’m just annoyed that I only found out after that volume 3 is next to impossible to get a new copy from ANYWHERE online. Also a couple more chapters of the No Game No Life light novel, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid 1, yes the anime is better but I just wanted more of this adorable and hilarious series in my life. I also read No Matter How I Look At It It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular 4, top quality as always and I read Testament of Sister New Devil: Storm 1 which wasn’t as smutty as I was hoping lol.
You perv… Hey, at least I can admit to it!
I don’t think that’s a good thing… But at least I’m honest!
Mmm… Anything else? Uh, I don’t think so.
Site news? Not as such, just gearing up for Spring 2018 anime season, but I’ll have a full post about it at the start of April once it’s announced which streaming services everything is airing on.
So how would you rate the week ending 25th of March 2018? Emotionally not so great, there were a lot of ups and downs, but with regard to anime and manga it was terrific! Thank you for reading and have a good week!
