Spring Season Animes 2018: First Impressions
Oohohohohoho!! Surprise! Surprise!
Its been awhile folks! Last season, I wasn’t able to make a first impression entry cuz of my very busy schedule. Right now, I am unemployed, so I have alot of time to make this entry. Ooohohohohoho. Yeeeee!!
Anyway, without further ado, here’s my thoughts for this Spring Season:
3D Kanojo: Real Girl – I had high expectations for this one cuz a friend of mine is a fan of the manga. I really thought this would be really good romance anime for this season, but…its not. The main girl is confusing AF, and I can’t really relate well with the main guy. I do like the progress of the story after the first episode. I do hope this one won’t disappoint.
Akkun to Kanojo – this anime short is so simple and very short but it delivers the story really well. The characters are really likeable. At first, I thought the main girl would be a M thats a bit ignorant to the main guy’s actions, but in the 2nd episode, I found out that the main girl knew everything all along. Damn. I love this short. XD PS: The OP song is one of my fav this season. ooohohohohoh
Alice or Alice – Woah, the level of fan-service on this anime short is…unexpected and vulgar. I really thought this would be a cute moe show. Didn’t expect the fan-service. I won’t come back for this one.
Amanchu! Advance – Uuuwwwwaaaa Amanchu continues to give me good vibes and fluffy feeling watching. Its so enjoyable, and its definitely a change of pace from the fast-paced sequels and reboots of famous and infamous animes this season. So good.
Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru! – Oh, this was the anime that got delayed. Hhhmmm…the premise is interesting. From killing dragons to killing human fellow ‘Jushikis’, this is definitely intriguing. I really like the weapon they use, a combi of sword & gun. Another thing is they look so COOL. I also like the OP song, I mean, its fripSide of course I would love it. Overall, I kinda like this one, but let’s see if I’ll change my mind later. Its still very early, I had only seen the first episode.
Isekai Izakaya – Koto Aitheria no Izakaya Nobu – Another cooking show, this time, its an advertisment type of cooking anime. Its similar to Isekai Shokudou from last year, but this one has a shorter time (only 10-15 minutes per episode) and it promotes food, specifically japanese food. Its quite interesting watching this one as I am very interested with the Japanese culture, but this anime short is definitely not a must watch.
Butlers: Chitose Momotose Monogatari – Okay. This one seems intriguing. The first episode seems a bit boring, introducing handsome characters, but the ending sure is intriguing. Gonna watch this more. PS: the Yaoi vibes seems strong in this one. Oohoohohohoh
Comic Girls – This anime is so fun to watch. I really like how they try to twist the negative aspect into something comedic. It definitely made this anime really enjoyable to watch, even though I gotta admit, some of the situations and lines of the character were too relatable. I really like the art & animation too. This is going to be a fun ride.
Fumikiri Jikan – Waaah. That was rather random and unexpected. I didn’t expect this anime short would have yuri in the end. Gonna check out more episodes.
Golden Kamuy – Damn…that was good. Like….REALLY REALLY GOOD. I already heard good reviews from the manga and some good first impressions from peepz in the community, but bruh, experiencing it for yourself is different. This anime looks mediocre, but the story and flow is so damn good. Its so intriguing and bold. Its also gore on some scenes, I totally don’t mind. Definitely gonna check this one out weekly.
Caligula – ooohohohoh!!! I THINK I JUST FOUND MY EDGY ANIME THIS SEASON. Yas!! The art reminds me of Danganronpa (even though I haven’t seen it yet, LOL). The story is the very interesting and intriguing. I also like the fact that it involves psychology, and music. Damn, this is some deep stuff. I do hope this won’t disappoint in the long run.
Gurazeni – Ooohohohoho another sports anime thats focused on baseball (first is Major 2nd). Totally didn’t expect this one (I didn’t check the synopsis, too hassle). The story is definitely different, and refreshing. In a way, we get a glimpse of what kind of life baseball pro are in. Though, I can’t guarantee that everything shown in this anime short is the real deal. I think I am going to continue watching this one.
Tada-kun wa koi wo shinai – Yas! Romance. I need more romance in my life. Lel. This sure is a cute romance slice-of-life anime. Its cute, fluffy and funny too, but I do expect more from this. I hope. I do like the sound and music of the anime.
Last Period: Owarinaki Rasen no Monogatari – Infairness, I didn’t expect this would be fun. The story is simple and a bit familiar. The characters are long likeable too, though I’m a bit weirded out by the supposed antagonists. I’ll watch this some more and see if I should drop this one or not.
Mahou Shoujo Ore – What.did.I.just.watch? This anime is one of my ‘anticipated’ anime for this season cuz of the premise, and it didn’t disappoint. LOL. This is one of the shows that is so bad and dumb, but at the same time its good in a sense that its still enjoyable. Good thing I am watching this weekly, cuz I don’t think I could survive binge-watching this.
Megalo Box – Ooohhh…now I understand the hype. Definitely a must watch, but I think I should binge-watch this instead.
Hinamatsuri – HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!!! This is so fun to watch. An Alien girl and a Mafia man, didn’t expect they would compliment with each other. This anime reminds me of Barakamon. This is so within my jam. Totally gonna check this out every week.
Nil Admirari no Tenbin – Teito Genwaku Kitan – Every season there is always an anime that is a reverse harem. For this season, its this one. Infairness, I find this new anime really good. The premise is really interesting, and I really like that I see other girls as supporting roles (THANK GOD!!). This is just my impression and I hope this anime won’t disappoint. Gonna continue to watch this one.
Sword Art Online Alternative – Gun Gale Online – My heart is ready for this anime. I got spoiled by a lot of people already so I kinda got the gist of this show, but what shocked me was the fact that the OP WAS FREAKIN’ SANG BY EIR AOI!!! WTF! I didn’t know she came back from her hiatus. T_T YAS!!! Anyway, back to the anime, I really had fun watching this one. I used to be a gamer in my younger days (early teens) and shooting games was my jam (CS, CoD, BHD, etc…you name it bruh). The story is easy to follow and its really good cuz its totally different from SAO. Definitely gonna check this one out weekly.
Mahou Shoujo Site – Uuuuuhhhhh….this is edgy. TOO EDGY.. for my taste. This is too funny. Why is there always an anime like this in some seasons. Previously was Ousama Game, now this? I just….can’t.
Uchuu Senkan Tiramisu – wut? This sure is hilarious.
Uma Musume – Pretty Derby – Ooohohohoho this is everything other people spoiled me about, yet I still enjoyed watching this one. The premise is absurd yet it also makes sense. Though I’m abit weirded out with the Idol thingy, its a bit unnecessary. Gonna continue watching this one.
Wotaku no Koi wa Muzukashii – YASSS!! This is one of my most anticipated anime in this season. I am a big fan of the web manga so seeing it as an anime feels amazing. They sure adapted it well. I LOVE THE OPENING! I also love the character designs, they surely keep it near to the original. I’m so happy. Definitely gonna watch this. PS: the promotion of other anime materials sure is not too over-the-top, don’t ya think??!?!
Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi – Hhhhmmmm…I’m abit hesitant with this. The premise is intriguing, but at the same time I’m not that interested. I do like the sound and music, its been awhile since I heard this kind of OST. I still need to see the next episodes.
Wow…thats too many.
I think I skipped alot of the famous and known sequels and reboots this season. Well, I haven’t seen their episodes yet and most of them I want to binge-watch instead. For sure in the next season, my watch list will be alot smaller. I don’t think I could keep up more with the growing number of animes.
Anyway, that’s it for now.
Thanks for reading!!
PS: more Wotaku!!
