And here we go.
So why did Masamune win again? Partly because that face and Aki’s figure was nice but mostly because the actual winner, Seiren, is something I’m staying cautiously wary on. I like the new arc-girl, Tooru, a lot so I don’t wish for a Tsuneki-tier ending so while I liked the new episode to a degree, I’m trying to be as cautious as possible not to place my hopes in something that will never happen. On the other end, Demi-chan’s episode was par for the course, Takahashi is an intrepid student where monsters are involved and we get a funny little exchange near the end.

So if the featured image says anything, Masamune-kun won this week for a few reasons. Onihei and Demi-chan brought their enjoyable episodes, Hosoya came back in the former while the latter still had a lot of sensei to give us even though I thought it was the yuki-onna’s episode. Seiren came out with a very bitter-sweet conclusion which really fell flat on its face which really isn’t the Amagami way of going about the relationship. This is enough to place Tsuneki at the near bottom since even Rihoko’s arc or Sae’s arc felt better than this. Masamune-kun delivered some supreme cute and I appreciate how it didn’t take absolutely forever in getting the main girl dere for our protagonist. It’s nothing new, honestly, but hey, execution counts for these things and it’s a character archetype I like.

And off we continue with the proper episode counts. Now ordered by release time.
I thoroughly enjoyed this week and I think, if I haven’t thought of this before or alluded to it in any way, the featured image “rule” will determine which show won my favor in the week. Why might I have not done this before? Well I didn’t exactly enjoy every show I was watching and this is one of the few times, if not the only time, that I have enjoyed a season in a long while.
Feels real good, and there’s even better things to come so I can’t wait for that.

I made an error for including Onihei in the previous week’s recap instead of including it in this one. No worries since the new week is around the corner. It’s kind of nice to have all the shows I’m watching be decently entertaining without the usual flaws I’m so critical of but that’s probably because I force myself to watch things I know will be bad. Even without the events that occurred this episode might have been universally interesting, I’m really looking forward to future episodes.
I guess in Seiren’s case, I just want to see another heartwarming love story not only with Tsuneki, but with others. Masamune-kun is thankfully nowhere near as stretched out as Nisekoi so that’s a good thing. Demi-chan is something I’m looking forward to for that sensei on sensei romance and Onihei is something I’m definitely new with so there’s some excitement in that as well.

That moment where you try to include as many shows into the “first” weekly post but now Episode 2 is out for some of these. Well fret not, I’ll another one of these up with either new shows or stick with my guns by the end of the week.
Been a while since some other, new anime was talked about here huh? What the newer seasons make up for in not saving battle harems for me to torture myself with anymore are more “casual” series for me to enjoy instead of dealing with forced and rushed drama battle harems tend to churn out every few months. It’ll be nice to take a more casual session through this season.
So rejoice, we’re doing something slightly different. Rather, we’re back to being normal.
