20 Question Weekly Review Week Ending 18th March 2018

So what’s new? Not a lot.

Well this is going to make for an interesting post… Then quit the small talk and let’s get to the reason anybody’s reading this—

—Nobody’s reading this. Fuah!

Huh? Ask me about something!

Oh right, so the currently airing anime? What’s good, what’s bad, what’s the same? Everything’s the same! Which is to say everything’s still good like last week and the week before!

Any highlights though? Slow Start was probably my favourite, going back to that forbidden well of teacher x student, or at least the promise of it. I probably could’ve done a whole episode post about it, but since we’re so close to the end I figured I’d just wait until the season is over and blog about the show in a proper full season review, like I’ll be doing for all the shows once they’re done.

And what other non-seasonal anime did you watch? Scorching Ping Pong Girls! Of which there will be a review coming tomorrow so no spoiling what I thought about it here! I started watching Super Sonico The Animation and, I’m kind of at a loss for words about that one, like I know why it exists, but I’m still like “why?” Also I (finally) watched the biggest anime movie of 2016, your name.

Oh! Will we be reviewing that one? Maybe…

Exciting! So what about manga? Get any? Not just manga, light novels too!

What’s a light novel? It’s like a manga but with a lot less pictures and a lot more words.

Okay, what did you get? In alphabetical order, I got Bakemonogatari 1 (LN), From the New World 1, Murcielago 2, Mysterious Girlfriend X Omnibus 1, No Game No Life 1-3 (LN), No Game No Life Please 2-3, NTR Netsuzou Trap 2-4 and Yokai Girls 2.

I had to buy a new bookshelf too! But I figured nobody needed to see a picture of that.

That’s a lot! And what did you read last week? Not as much as I’d like as I was writing more, but I read Monster Musume 7, which was a nice return to form after the previous 2 volumes were a little bit lacking. I read a chapter of No Game No Life light novel, which was as expected very close to the anime, just with a little bit more detail. And I read No Matter How I Look At It It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular 3, the reason I’m only getting to this now is because I’ve had volumes 6-11 for a while, but not 4 and 5 (for some reason they were always more expensive and I stalk Book Depository for the cheapest prices), so I had to wait until they came down in price, and they finally did so 4 and 5 should be arriving soon.

Great, and I already know the answer to this one but, get any anime merch? A whole box of it from Mandarake in Japan! You can read the detailed list and see pictures of the merch in Part 1 and Part 2 of my Mandarake Merch Madness posts.

You got more merch though, didn’t you! I did! I got a smaller parcel from Amazon Japan; I didn’t make a post about it because I figured I should save something for this post.

So go on then, what’d you get? I got two wall tapestries one for ‘Is It Wrong To Try and Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon’ and one for ‘A Sister’s All You Need’. I got a ‘Classroom of the Elite’ Airi Sakura oppai phone charm and an ‘Interviews With Monster Girls’ Sakie Sato acrylic stand. And for the irl waifu a ‘Haikyu’ and ‘Yuri on Ice’ pillow cases (still need to buy pillows for them).

I don’t know why the brand name is called ‘MOMS’.

The Victor pillow is so fluffy!

What’s the point of that ‘oppai phone charm’? I don’t know, I saw them when I was in Japan last year and wanted one but didn’t recognise any of the characters, but since then I had watched more shows and so when I saw best girl from ‘Classroom of the Elite’ I had to have it. In hindsight a silly purchase, but whatever at least I’ve got one now!

Okay now that’s all done with now, any site news? We hit 50 followers! Which was exciting, I’m very appreciative of everyone who made it possible by supporting me!

Yay! Anything else? I’m still trying to figure out how to review the 2018 Spring Anime when they start, I’m intending to watch most of the shows to start with but I don’t know how sustainable it would be to review every episode of every new show in the 20 Question Format, but I still do want to make observations regarding every new episode I watch.

Yeah, no one’s going to want to read 5 or more 20 Question Reviews every day. Hmm, I’m sure I’ll think of something.

So how would you rate the week ending the 18th of March 2018. Busy! Filled with merch! A great week in anime too, it’s exciting that all these shows I’ve been watching are coming so close to their conclusions! Let’s just hope they actually have satisfying conclusions! Thank you all for reading and have a great day!

  1. Congratulations on the 50 followers.
    For the spring season have you considered doing a couple of taster twenty questions where you cover three or four of the shows you watched until you decide which shows you intend to stick with?

    1. Hmm, it’s a good idea, I guess the only issue I have is how I’d write the title of each post, I wouldn’t want it to get too long like for example if it were 4 shows in 1 review it’d look like “My Hero Academia S3 E1, Food Wars S3E1, Persona 5 the Animation S3E1, Devils Line S3E1 – 20 Question Anime Review’. Which seems a bit excessive for a blog title.
