Anime Fall Season 2017: Final Thoughts

2017 fall anime

Don’t get angry with us, but neither of us finished the most recent Love Live! season yet, so bear with us, we’ll get there eventually. And since Konohana Kitan was a last-minute addition, it’s not included on the list, but it’ll probably get a review in the near future.

Anyway, enjoy our First Impressions of the fall anime season that just came to an end~


Girls’ Last Tour • 8/10
Length: 12 Episodes • Genre: Adventure, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Slice of Life

Out of the handful of shows that I picked up this season, this one turned out to be the most pleasant surprise. Whenever I see the “slice of life” tag attached to an anime, my expectations are already tempered, as I more or less have an idea of what to expect. Girls’ Last Tour has all the traits that I’ve come to enjoy from the genre, but it throws viewers a curveball in the form of a post-apocalyptic setting.

I gladly welcome any setting in this genre that isn’t a classroom, yet despite the dreary atmosphere, this never really felt too depressing. That can mostly be attributed to Yuu and Chi, whose chemistry together is perfect and I’d say that there’s just enough comedy and lighthearted moments to counterbalance the gloominess. Somehow, this turned out to be a really charming affair, and out of all of the shows I watched this year, this was probably the most easygoing and watchable one for me.

There isn’t that much to the story, though, it is intriguing how the world turned into this barren wasteland that’s devoid of life. War is hell, and by the end, the minor philosophical undertones add a little depth to the story, making this far from your average “cute girls doing cute things” anime. You’re probably wondering if there are any hints of yuri in this one, and sadly, the answer is not really. However, in my opinion, it’s still one of the better anime of the season, and out of all the shows that we’ve given scores of 8 to this season, this is probably my favorite~

2017 fall anime

Konohana Kitan

This is easily my favorite show of the season. Cute characters, a relaxing and fun story, and girls with animal ears?! Yes, please! Also, did I mention the yuri undertones in this one?

So yeah, I’m really enjoying Konohana Kitan so far. It’s yet again a show that you wanna watch after a long day of work and just relax while following the girls doing their work at the inn. Also, is it just me or do shows about young girls working at an inn or hotel always come with yuri subtext? I’m not complaining in the slightest thought~

Anime Review: Himouto! Umaru-chan

himouto umaru-chan

Anyone who enjoys anime, manga, or video games can probably see a little bit of themselves in Umaru-chan. We’ve all had those moments when watching our favorite anime, reading our favorite manga, or playing our favorite game was the most important thing in the world to us, but I’d wager that none of us can quite hold a candle to Umaru in that regard. If you think this sounds like an interesting idea for an anime, we’re of a like mind~
