Consider this a mini-review because, for better or for worse, a lot of the problems from the first cour carried over to the second cour.
Aniplex’s 2-cour “titan” Asterisk finally comes to an end and boy does it end on an extremely boring cliffhanger. As I’ve mentioned above, there’s really not much to say other than that the Bad things continued to remain bad while the good things remain good and on the latter portion, there’s not that many. So let’s get this over quickly so we can get to the full-blown stuff, shall we?
Oh, and with a bunch of series ending the past week, there won’t be recap as per usual in the final week.

Really behind on this one and for a few series, I think their finales are coming along this week. We’ll see how those end up and I’ll get the series reviews up and running appropriately. But things are all shaping up toward a resemblance of a finale, as they all should. I’m still wondering what series are going to be 12 episodes or 13 though.

Only now do I realize how spaced apart these series reviews are going to be in the next 2-5 weeks. Hundred is going to be slightly annoying since I honestly didn’t really watch too much of it to really give it a “critical” look at it like I did with the previous harems going on. I don’t even think it’s me being critical but just having a chip on my shoulder for it.
I dread to think that I might have to watch it again to actually have a legitimate opinion. Oh well, let’s continue.

Another week passes by where we cross the 3/4th line of the season. Honestly though, I’m not exactly all that excited for the Summer season since Summer in particular is rarely ever good. It’s around this time I feel the secondary arcs end and they set up for the final arcs so I hope to see some exciting stuff for next week since rushed endings more often than not ruin most series.

Late but still going through at top speed.
The good stuff get better while the boring stuff remain trite, nothing new going around here and not like I expect the boring stuff to suddenly become great all of a sudden. I also find it pretty annoying at how all the stuff I’m watching doesn’t seem to add up all that much with the “Week of [Insert Number here]” stuff I’m doing thanks to a load of stuff happening this season.
Either way, I’d hate to be behind so let’s get going.

Now we have most series hitting the half-way point of the season and I find myself legitimately liking what I’m watching with the sole exception of the two harem series (of course) but even then, there’s something to be gained from watching something you don’t particularly like I feel.
But it was an enjoyable week nonetheless, even those harems series had something going for them this time around. I’ll doubt it will last but it is what it is.

Honestly, when you watch something for six weeks but always end up just skipping through it or just not finding the need to watch it, I’ve decided to drop Cerberus.
And hilariously enough, I had enough time to actually be ahead of schedule and actually got some slightly lengthier passages in so good on me for that. Dropping a single series has given me less on my mind because of how much of a drag Cerberus was to digest. Anyways, here’s this week’s recap as we somewhat enter the halfway point of Spring.
