Just like I did last season, I’ll be briefly covering the Winter 2019 seasonal anime that I watched but that didn’t get a full review on the site. This is not indicative of a show’s quality (for the most part) but rather a that I didn’t have enough to say about a show to write a full review. I’ll keep spoilers to a minimum but will warn if it’s unavoidable. So without further delay here’s the episodes I watched but didn’t review this week.
How Clumsy You Are, Miss Ueno (Episode 2)
Moved to ‘Watched But Not Reviewed’ but not due to a lack of quality just a lack of things to say to justify a full review. Much like the first episode it was funny and endearing with just the right amount of inappropriate humour. The second segment of the episode was undoubtedly the highlight, with Ueno’s bottom getting more than she bargained for!
Dimension High School (Episode 2)
With the exception of some minor character moments this was ostensibly the exact same episode as the previous one only with more incomprehensible puzzles (not the show’s fault, but the fault of the language barrier) and repeated jokes that weren’t even funny the first time. I made the remark that this show wasn’t bad, just “meh” but I take it back–this show has zero redeeming qualities. Dropped.
Girly Air Force (Episode 2)
Another solid–if unremarkable episode–this episode focused on Gripen and very quickly she became an endearing and entertaining character to watch. If this series is going to succeed by anything it’s going to be on the quality of the girls and their connection with the protagonist, and if this episode is any indicator it should do just fine.
Date A Live III (Episode 2)
I must have been in a really bad mood last week because I complained about the first episode a lot. This second episode is perfectly fine visually and has some compelling story beats and genuine character development–the confession scene between Yuzuru and Shido particularly was beautiful to look at and genuinely touching. I apologise for my remarks last week and I look forward to the next episode!
Bermuda Triangle: Colorful Pastrale (Episode 2)
Another show moved to ‘Watched But Not Reviewed’ status, nothing really to say other than ‘cute mermaids doing cute things’ though I do appreciate the fact this seems to be a less episodic show and instead has an ongoing story-arc which is a different ~feel~ than I’m used to when it comes to shows like this. It’ll be fun if this ends up becoming ‘a bunch of mermaids running a movie theatre’ but I get the feeling that’s not anywhere near going to be the end goal with this series.
Circlet Princess (Paused at Episode 1 due to no-one currently fansubbing)
Ame-Iro Cocoa: Side G (Paused at Episode 1 due to two-minute episode length, will resume at the end of the season)
And that’s all for this week! Let me know what you thought in the comments below!
