Summer 2018 Anime Discussion

Recommended Posts

So, I just watched the first episode of Happy Sugar Life and dag all I can say is that is so far a faithful adaption of the manga, with all that entails.
Shits only going to get more fucked yo.

HANEBADO! is one of those shows that have a slight yuri vibe to them and makes you wonder whether it tries to be one or if it's just your warped mind giving subtext that isn't there.

Although the protagonist's mother seems to be a lesbian? And her best friend told about her that she's not interested in boys? It could be read in a few ways though.

It's also a rather fine show so far. A bit over-the-top, as every sports anime is, but it's getting better over time. ^_^

I've so far checked out five of the summer premieres:

How Not to Summon a Demon Lord:

Overall it's good enough so far (only watched the first episode). It's nothing outstanding, but the jokes are funny enough and the fanservice is good enough...though I can't help but feel I'd be enjoying this more if this were an eroge since then it wouldn't have to hold back on the harem and H stuff at all.

Angels of Death

Only watched the first episode. This one's just okay; the mystery around the girl and the place she's trapped in has me curious, but other than that I'm not all that impressed so far. The twist with the doctor was obvious from the get go and admittedly the guy with the scythe looks more silly than scary.

Harukana Receive

It looks nice, but admittedly the sports aspect isn't really appealing to me that much. The moment the anime started hinting one of the girls used to play volleyball but doesn't anymore the first thing that popped into my head was "Okay, who died?" and sure enough at the end of the episode... Also I get the main appeal for this anime, in fact it reminds me of this little sum up of the main reason people watched Baywatch:

Cells at Work

Watched episode 1 and 2. This may be the best of the bunch as I'm liking the wackiness of this show be it the character antics, how something mundane like a cut is portrayed as affecting the characters, or how the villains of episode 2 get beaten.

Angolmois

Watched the first episode and I liked what I saw. The premise and main cast is interesting, the animation's nice, and I really like the opening (gives me an old samurai film feel, though considering that and the historical event this is centered around I'll be surprised if any characters survive at the end of this).

I've only checked two series so far.

First is Grand Blue. Like any other adaptation of a comedy manga, I think it doesn't flow as well as in anime form. It's like they don't give it time for the joke to "settle in", when you start laughing the show already moved on, everything moves too fast. But I said the same about Prison School, and that turned out pretty good. At least they get it right the weird expressions and overall zaniness of the series. The didn't even cut their retarded alcohol consumption habits, so much they had two warnings of "don't attempt this at home!" :wahaha:  Best chapter is this week, that'll decide everything.

Second was Banana Fish. Ignored by a lot of people for being a "series for girls", because it was published in a shojo magazine and it have a cast of only males, I went to see and found... only gang violence and tragedy and more tragedy. I'm really behind times for thinking that "for girls" means it's a sappy romance, dear god, it's quite dark. How was this published in a shojo magazine in the 80s???? I'll need a moe series to watch on the side, I can see this will leave me devastated. :komari:  I could watch Free, since sports bros is healing enough for me, but I'm one season behind.

Personally, I'm watching:

  • Grand Blue: Didn't expect much from the adaptation, but it's pretty decent. We shall see if the anime manages to make the show justice, since it's one of the funniest manga ever.
  • Overlord III: More Overlord.
  • Hataraku Saibou (Cells at Work): Probably the anime of the season. Everyone's already in love with it, and it's indeed pretty good. A doctor even made a thread on Reddit talking about the first episode.
  • Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro: Another surprise! I expected it to be quite dumber, but the show's actually quite entertaining.

All hail the Platelets, which the show actually has scientific reason to make lolis and shotas, due to how small they are.

Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro so far is the only show that's mildly amusing. Everything else new is boring me to to tears. I'm going to end up watching the least new shows this season than I have in about 5 years, and it's not for lack of time. Even hataraku saibou is actually not really that entertaining beyond the platelets being cute with its complete lack of any story (plus I know physiology backwards so I'm not learning anything.)  Please don't lewd the platelets.

I'm having a lot of fun with Happy Sugar Life. Had some Mirai Nikki vibes here and there, though with a slightly different angle to its storytelling approach. Not much to say about it so far since I only watched one episode, but it's been a pretty wild ride!

Not sure why I went in expecting anything different from a video game adaption, but Satsuriku no Tenshi is a definite flop. The pacing is bad enough for even me to notice it, there's almost no psychological tension where there should be, and even Okamoto can't save the character he's voicing from looking stupid. I couldn't stomach more than 14 minutes of this anime, so I'll be giving it a pass.

Grand Blue is fairly amusing! I've heard good things about the manga, and it does seem to carry over pretty nicely in the adaption from what I've seen so far on the first episode. The facial expressions in this anime are top notch!

Episode after episode, steins;gate 0 is improving over and over, this episode 14 was excellent, and even by altering events that happened in the VN, it gives a way more coherent and cohesive story, in my opinion.
