I’m way behind the times yet again as the Spring season has already started, but here’s a wrap-up of the past Winter.
The show of the season: ACCA
This has got the one of the weirdest shows I’ve seen in a while. I didn’t think successfully mixing conspiracy, political thriller and lazy, relaxing slice of life into a single show was possible, or that there would be someone crazy enough to even try such a feat. What’s even more baffling is that it actually worked. Given my unexpected work situation over the past months, I found great sympathy with ACCA’s laid-back protagonist being dragged into world-class political conspiracy when all he wanted was a cozy routine desk job, and facing it with an expression of dry amusement. An unconventional and interesting watch.
Runner-up: Little Witch Academia
I’m not a fan of Trigger, but LWA has been a very pleasant watch so far. Great visuals, but the story takes a long time to get moving, and Luna Nova lacks the substance and mystery that I would expect of anime Hogwarts. Looking forward to the second cour, as it seems we’re finally getting to the juicy bits.
Bellies are fine too. I really hope for a second season, and soon.
Comedies that were okay but should have been better: Gabriel DropOut, KonoSuba S2
Cute girls, little substance: MinaKama
Low brow but watchable: Akiba’s Trip
Barely below the cut: Chaos;Child, Masamune-kun no Revenge
What the fuck ever who gives a shit: Hand Shakers
Next week is shaping up to be absolute torture so who knows when I can get to enjoying the current season. Hopefully by the next weekend. Here you go with a few macro shots, cliché but fun every once in a while:
