Boku no Hero Academia Episodes 21: Advertising

Boku no Hero Academia Episodes 21: Advertising

A fairly quick episode that serves its purpose to get to the better parts.

There’s always those episodes in these tournament settings that we need to get out of the way before the real meat of it shows its face. I do appreciate that they included some of these, even if they weren’t the most entertaining, since they still add to the future developments between characters we’ll be seeing since this series actually maintains its character personalities.

So some real-life complications had me completely unable to be able to cover last week’s episode alone but to be perfectly fair, half of it was Todoroki talking to Deku. Thankfully, Shinsou’s episode wasn’t all that bad. Everytime I reread or come back to this fight I remember what his powers were but keep forgetting how Deku won and after the anime finally got here, I don’t think I’ll forget since this is a pretty important implication shown off with One For All’s ability.

Anyway, let’s get this done before I fall further behind.

Boku no Hero Academia Episodes 14-18: Mother of Recaps

Ain’t this just the latest I’ve ever been.

It’s a strange feeling I have since I actually read ahead of the series and knew what was going to happen so technically, I could have written this up way earlier. This was also my most anticipated series of the season yet me being aware of its events made me prioritize other things than watching how its scenes were adapted. Thankfully we’re here now so let’s get this out of the way so I can judge if Bahamut was worth watching or not.

Onihei- The Man, the Legend

The first day of the new season 3 months ago had me looking around a streaming site to see if any of the promotional images would grab my attention. Sure enough, I find one series I never heard about with a really distinct style to it. I Googled Onihei and was surprised to learn that this was the official anime adaptation of long running series of novels and live-action dramas that has been a part of Japan’s libraries since the 1960’s and its TV programming since 2005. I was already brought in with its distinctive style but learning of how this was the first attempts to officially animate the franchise really interested me because for how big it is, I never heard it before I watched the adaptation.

To any of you who stuck around, my feelings for this series should clear as day.

Allow me to be perfectly honest when I say I’m still not used to reviewing a series like this where it’s more for relaxation instead of portraying a plot-line or another, more direct means of taking a series in. I usually don’t watch these types of series aside from a small handful of them nor do I properly know how to address them in a way I usually do.

Demi-chan went under my initial radar of things to watch when the series first aired but I was pointed in its direction by a friend’s recommendation and I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy the experience.

Seiren- Paradigm Shifts

Seiren- Paradigm Shifts

Coming from someone who enjoyed Amagami very much, news of Seiren came to me and I instantly began to have some level of expectations for it. Given that there aren’t enough omnibus style romance shows with Amagami’s quality and level of tenderness, I was really looking forward to a heartwarming series to really tug at my heartstrings and make me feel all cozy and comfortable.

Although if any of you stuck around with me since the season’s start, you’d know that this show was the bumpiest road I’ve had in a while. So how can you mess up something so tried and true that even made Photokano at least worth watching again? Let’s get down to it.

Masamune-kun no Revenge- No Revenge

The season’s popular romcom comes to an end with a less than satisfying note. I’ve probably told my run-in with this series before the anime’s airing but I’ll go over it anyway: The first thing I saw from this series was a single panel from the first chapter where it showed Masamune’s mom and I just couldn’t bear looking at it for a bit. That was around a year and a half ago before they announced the animation project and I think there was something going on me with the time about disliking how the loli bodytype was being over-used and how it mostly lost its comedic impact.

Nonetheless, my interest in the series mostly grew back somehow. I admit I had no expectations other than Aki acting like an uppity snob and looking forward to some banter and I got exactly that for a few episodes. How were the rest? Well let’s find out.
