It’s that time of the year again, so enjoy our First Impressions on the winter anime season that just started~
I liked the first season, so why not continue and hope for it to pick up right where we left off a few years ago? And that’s exactly what this show did. Well, we could argue about the fact that they should probably have put in a short recap of the first season, since I was kind of lost at some points when they were talking about past events. Though, the show seems to be as fun and entertaining as the last season, so I’ll surely follow this for a while longer~
I only started watching this one because I had seen a lot of screenshots on Tumblr that looked like the show was kinda interesting. Well, don’t get me wrong, I’ve only watched the first episode, but after the run of 20 minutes alone, I couldn’t stand listening to Tanya anymore, as her annoying voice drove me crazy. Funny thing is, it’s the same voice actress as Madoka (Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica) or Hibiki (Senki Zesshou Symphogear), both characters I actually enjoyed listening to.
Well, the anime itself looks okay, nothing outstanding so far, though it has potential. If it wasn’t for the fact that they seemingly put little girls on the front lines of war, as well as make Tanya—who has the most annoying voice ever—the main character, I might continue, but like this, I can’t.
Having just graduated from angel school in Heaven, Gabriel descends to the human world to further her studies… but instead, she gets addicted to video games and essentially turns into a slacker. Yeah, a comedic take on teenage angels and demons (they’re involved too) is pretty ridiculous, but so far, it’s a fun show that I’m enjoying quite a bit. You throw in the fact that HanaKana is involved (as an angel, of course), and this show looks more and more promising.
It’s an all-female cast—as least thus far—but there aren’t really any hints that there will be any yuri subtext involved, so no need to get too excited. Nevertheless, the winter season looks a little better, thanks to this show~
This anime was already on our Yuri Anime 2017 list, so needless to say, this is most likely going to compete with Urara Meirochou for yuri-ish anime of the season. Through the first episode, things look really promising on the yuri front, and even though they literally couldn’t be any more different, Tohru and Kobayashi seem to have all the makings of an excellent pairing. You have the serious-minded office worker Kobayashi and the outgoing and affectionate maid dragon, Tohru, and this odd couple of sorts is already making things pretty entertaining.
It doesn’t hurt having KyoAni as the studio behind this, and so far, this is looking like a comedy that’s gonna be a lot of fun, especially when Kobayashi inevitably starts warming up to Tohru. If things keep going the way they’re going, expect to see a review of this at the end of the season~
First off, let me say that if this were a yuri anime, I think some people (i.e., me) would be losing their shit. I loved Aoi Hana, and for the longest time, I’ve been wanting a yuri anime that takes on a more serious tone and puts all of the emphasis on the relationships, just like how Kuzu no Honkai does. With Citrus and Netsuzou Trap both coming down the pike, I think this show would be an excellent blueprint to follow.
Now, this isn’t a yuri anime, but the story still seems very interesting. We have two people who are in love with someone (their teachers), but since their feelings are unrequited, they find a remedy for their loneliness in each other. So, essentially, they are each other’s replacements, but this is more of a “business” arrangement, and both their hearts belong to someone else. And did I mention that these two teachers are interested in each other?
I think this feels more adult than your typical romance anime, so until we get another yuri anime that wants to be serious and straightforward, this might be enough to scratch that itch for me.
After seeing a screenshot of two girls face-to-face, I figured I’d take a look at this, and I thought the first episode was surprisingly good. My favorite thing about this show so far is probably the characters, especially Chiya. She’s the early front-runner for cutest character of the season, and her belly-baring habit (for herself and others) is pretty great. Kon and Koume remind me of Chiya from GochiUsa for the former and Nico from Love Live! for the latter (except she’s actually enjoyable). The final main character, Nono, is an extremely shy girl, and she’s pretty much the polar opposite of Chiya, yet she’s another cute character in a show filled with cute characters.
And did I mention that this is already looking pretty promising from a yuri standpoint? It even found its way into the OP, so it looks like this will definitely be a show to keep watching till the end. It probably won’t be the next great slice of life anime, but at the very least, this looks like it’ll be a welcome addition to the cute girls doing cute things genre, and I can’t wait to see more cuteness~
Nobody’s favorite horror anime series is back for another season, and now more than ever, the new season of Yami Shibai seems like a waste of time, even despite the fact that the episodes are only 4 minutes long. The addition of the narrator killed the atmosphere for me, and the brief live-action segments just feel weird and out of place. Ever since the first season season ended, you could say this series has been getting progressively worse, so barring something dramatic happening with the next episode, I can’t see myself watching this for much longer.
