So if you have been reading my blog for a long time, you know that I am a big Fate fan, so of course I will be reviewing the third season of this spin-off series about magical girls collecting cards.
This doesn’t look like Fate/Stay Night through? Oh, you guys are talking about the fate there are magical loli girls, instead of the usual men and women fighting in a holy grail war? Well, I did say this was a spin-off and the third season. This series in set in an alternative where the fifth war never happen, and you need to watch the other seasons before this one. Warning, this is the darkest season yet, and this post is a huge fan biased.
“Edutainment” series, ones that both exist to teach and to entertain, are something not everyone enjoys. I think Time Travel Shoujo is the strongest Edutainment series I’ve seen to date, and could still be something those that generally don’t care for them would enjoy. This is Bill Nye of anime.It tells the story of Mari, a middle schooler, and her friend Waka as they travel to different times in our history and meet some of the most influential inventors in human history while trying to find Mari’s dad, who was missing at the start of the series. There are holes in the story of this series like the science behind time travel, or the villain motive to go after the time traveling technology. These details are annoying, but they will forced you connect the dots yourself to either accept them and watch the show or drop it.
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru (or Konobi for short) is a perfect example of an anime which technically doesn’t do anything particularly different from your average rom-com, but it accomplishes what modest goals it has with flying colours. We have a standard middle school club setting and barely any plot development to speak of; the show is simply about the everyday events the characters experience in their lives, and their interactions with each other. No more, no less. But with characters as interesting and likeable as these and some good laughs to go with them, that’s really all you need to still deliver a very funny and entertaining anime.
Saiki Kusuo no Ψ nan is a comedy slice-of-life story about Saiki Kusuo who has special powers that allow him to do pretty much anything. Yet, when you can do so much, all you want is peace, but you rarely get what you want. Continue reading →
Qualidea Code is pretty standard, but not unbearably standard. While the character designs may look generic even if it wasn’t produced by the A-1 picture and the clothing simply a school setting for a sake of simplicity in not giving them unique clothing…
The anime isn’t actually a school setting anime and instead focuses on six characters divide into three groups which run and defend their respective districts. Continue reading →
At first glance Mob Psycho 100 is another brilliant comedy written by ONE, the same author of One Punch Man, however upon further viewership, there is much more to be seen. Mob Psycho is actually a character driven story supplemented by humor, and the occasional action sequence. I recommend Mob Psycho to everyone on this planet, and encourage them to watch and to be surprised, just as I was, when they realize they are no longer watching a simple comedy, but complex character story.

The Morose Mononokean is certainly a hidden gem from this Summer 2016 season as I unfortunately made the mistake of overlooking it. If you’re a comedy fan, then this show would be a treat for you with its crude humour and running gags that are recurring throughout. Continue reading →
