Winter 2018 Anime I’m Covering

Welp!! Its a whole new year of anime and its looking like this year is gonna be pretty great for anime.

All of these I will be attempting to follow unless I lose interest in the series completely. 1.…

Trixie’s Hidden Treasurers #1

What’s more valuable, your future or your present? The first anime in my new segment called Trixie’s Hidden Treasures poses this very interesting question to the audience in a unique way. I’m alluding to the never talked about underrated show C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control. The show’s premise is that there is another world where people wager their future for unimaginable amounts of cash in the present. The battles take place with personas that represent the future that is on the line. If this concept alone interests…

Masamune-kun’s Revenge Episode 4 – Makabe is kind of dense

Last week Makabe ended on fairly good terms with Adagaki even after being knocked flat for pulling the old “I heard a scream in the female dressing room and as a male, I’m going to charge in and most undoubtedly get socked in the face by my female counterpart” routine, so this week he does a little bit more research on how to win a maidens heart. Naturally he is bookmarking good lines out of shoujo manga because honestly, who wouldn’t. Although he ends up picking the creepiest lines ever…

First Impressions: Scum’s Wish

  Have you ever watched two trains on the same tracks headed for a collision?! I hadn’t either until I watched the first episode of Scum’s Wish and let me tell you it gave me the emotional impact of the former statement. Actually it was more like 5 different trains all headed for each other head-on. You are probably wondering, “that bad of a show huh?” You’d actually be mistaken it was probably one of the best first episodes I’ve seen this season. Between the masterful art direction, animation, the stellar voice…

This is the girl he has come back for to exact his revenge. Makabe is not without his own faults. The fact that he…

Interviews with Monster Girls Episode Three (with Ep. 1-2 breakdown)

First off I will give a disclaimer that this may be one of those series that was created just for people like me, who tend to get hyped up for a show that has really quirky and zany side characters. So far I have not been disappointed. The main protagonist in this series is Takahashi Tetsuo a biology teacher at a high school with a fascination for the same things I have a fascination for. People who are outside of the norm, that have interesting quirks and personas. He’s always…

Yuu runs into Fuuka Akitsuki (literally) and in pure anime fashion Fuuka clocks him for looking at her panties. The story continues and Fuuka ends up being in the class…

Seiren

Seiren Every new anime season always seems to have a slice of life romcom, and every season i waggle my proverbial tail like a dog seeing his master after a long day of being at home alone when i tune into the first few episodes. That show this season is “Seiren” a show much like another one of my personal favorites “Amagami SS”. Like “Amagami SS” this show is broken up into arcs based on each of the three heroines with four episodes each for each heroine you get a…
