Anime in Spring 2016

Boku no Hero Academia
Fun shonen action anime. Opinions seem to be mixed on this, but I enjoyed it well enough, and liked it well enough to watch season 2. Ochako best girl.

Sakamoto desu ga?
Cute comedy by the director who directed Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou and a lot of Gintama. Great comedic timing, great emotional timing. Good jobu. The lasting impact of it is low but it’s a fun ride while it lasts.

Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?
Really loved it. A-Ko is mai waifu would marry. Really fun romance anime that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Flying Witch
Absolutely beautiful–a dream to watch. Slow moving and incredibly atmospheric. Made me want to fly away be witch and grow a garden. The director (Sakurabi Katsushi) hasn’t done anything else I care about (other than animation director on the Utena movie) and oh fuck, that Tsukihime anime. I think he definitely made up for that huge fuck up with the loveliness that is Flying Witch.

Uchuu Patrol Luluco
It’s Trigger. If you like Trigger, you’ll like that. Beautiful animation, fun characters and a great time. If a little impressionless to me. But I have shit taste who cares. With co-directors, Imaishi Hiroyuki directed Panty & Stocking and Kill la Kill, and Amemiya Akira directed Inferno Cop. If you like Trigger, you’ll like this.

Kuma Miko
This show is a fucking mystery. It’s fairly pretty, definitely has moe through helplessness appeal. Rage inducing ending but otherwise it’s fine.

Super Lovers
Please don’t fuck your adopted brother. Just don’t do it. I can’t front, it was pretty okay. Fujoshibait to the extreme. Director directed Log Horizon and Fairy Tail before? This is mysterious. I will be watching season 2 though.

Macross Δ
Cute fun girls and mechs. And protoculture. It’s cool.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal Season III
It’s really cute. The savior of Sailor Moon Crystal I guess–I don’t know if the art style suits it. I want my 90’s shoujo art. It’s fine though. Female director is cool though, Kon Chiaki also directed Golden Time, BL series Junjou Romantica, and Nodame Cantabile Finale. It was pretty okay.

Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou 2nd Season
Pretty. Director Mizushima Seiji also directed Mobile Suit Gundam 00. I didn’t really like the storytelling format but it was definitely trying to be unique and it kind of works, so kudos.

Kyoukai no Rinne 2nd Season
Great. I fucking love this shit. Takahashi Rumiko’s art style is so beautiful rendered in a modern way in this series. Season 3 please I need it.

Honobono Log
Cute and pointless — but cute. Really short episodes on cute couples. Good way to waste an hour.

Nuwa Chengzhang Riji
Literal Chinese cartoon. A harem full of guys, an interesting art style and humor. Kind of feels like bootleg anime but still fun. Shout out to the brave subbers literally doing it on YouTube. God bless.
