Because this season I’m watching more shows but reviewing less of them week-to-week I figured it’d make sense to at least let you all keep tabs on my brief thoughts on each episode. Just because a show is here doesn’t mean it’s any less good than any other show, it just means I didn’t have enough to say about it to justify a full review! Also, I’ll try and refrain from spoilers where possible but will give warning if I do need to post a spoiler.
Space Battleship Tiramisu Zwei (Episode 4)
Probably one of the funniest episodes for a long time (and easily in the second season) the part with Isuzu and the woman in the bar with his subtle escalating ‘douchiness’ was an absolute laugh riot!
Banana Fish (Episode 15 & 16)
I don’t have much to say about these episodes, they were good quality and entertaining but also ~kind of~ ludicrous and over-the-top which was enjoyable in its own way but also distracted from the more serious subject matter.
Ms. vampire who lives in my neighbourhood. (Episode 3)
Sophie Twilight goes to school! This episode is adorable (as expected) but also surprisingly heartfelt as we learn more backstory for Sophie and the fact that she lost her family after turning into a vampire and that she’s been more or less alone for the 350+ years since then. I just want to give this little vampire all of the hugs!
Boarding School Juliet (Episode 3)
We’re introduced to a new character in the form of Princess Char who is ~obsessed~ with Juliet and is it wrong that I was totally shipping Char and Juliet? Not that Romio isn’t a worthy love-interest of course. I don’t know why I like this show as much as I do, its not usually a genre I’m interested in but I guess the conceit of this story is pretty timeless.
The Girl In Twilight (Dropped At Episode 4)
I almost didn’t watch this episode and I’m almost annoyed I did. I didn’t hate this episode, the Western setting was at least ~mildly~ interesting but honestly I just didn’t care about anything that happened except for the two brief fan-service moments. And even for me that’s not enough to continue watching a show. Maybe one day I’ll return and binge-watch it, but for now I’m just so disappointed at how far this show has fallen from the potential it showed in the first episode that I can’t bring myself to watch anymore right now.
Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Episode 3)
There’s not much to say about this show but I do think its endearing and entertaining and even informative. Plus it’s pretty damn funny too!
As Miss Beezlebub Likes (Episode 3)
*sigh* Watching the first five minutes of this show was such a chore I was ~certain~ this would be the last episode and I would be dropping it. But much like Episode 2, the side characters make this show worth watching. They’re legitimately fun and interesting people–unlike our main “romantic” duo of Beezlebub and Mullin who are so dull that I could fall asleep. I’ll keep watching in the hope that this becomes more of an ‘ensemble comedy’ rather than the boring ‘romantic comedy’ it occasionally feels like.
Zombie Land Saga (Dropped At Episode 2)
And that’s the week of anime I’m calling ‘Week 3’ if you have any more questions about these episodes and specific thoughts I had on specific scenes, leave me a comment below!
