2018 summer anime first impressions

So what do we have here? Yuri title of the season? Check. Super cute characters? Check. Disturbing story? Check.

Wait, what?! So the ones who already read the manga knew what was coming. For others, it might have been a huge shock. I usually love shows with some shock value. Ones that lead you into believing they are something different and then just hit you with what they truly are, like Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica, or in one way or another, Asobi Asobase, too. Now add in some yuri and it should be the perfect combination, right? But somehow, it’s not quite.

As much as I love this type of show as well as age gap, and, of course, yuri, I guess the age difference here might be a bit too big or rather, one of them is simply too young for me to actually get into this and find it okay. On the other hand, from only having watched the first episode and having read about three chapters of the manga, the love shared here might be a little more on the sisterly side, but do correct me if I’m wrong.

All in all, I am surprised of how well the adaptation turned out so far. I might not be the biggest fan of the story, and I might as well not really be there for the yuri in this one, but I’ll definitely stick around to see where the story goes from here.

Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai • 6/10

Oh, what a guilty pleasure this was… I was constantly torn between seriously not liking it for it’s over the top ecchiness and the ridiculous and kind of out of place singing scenes that happened almost each and every episode, and simply enjoying it for the fun it provided and also the yuri that more or less also stayed a constant element of the show for its whole run. I guess I can’t say I’m fully satisfied with its yuri content, even though we did get quite a lot, though that shall be part of my full review that we’ll post after the current tournament has ended. For now, let’s just say I expected some more in the yuri department, even though we definitely did get quite a lot~

Okay guys, I know this show is bad. Very bad, to be honest. We won’t get much plot, what we get might not make any sense, and the whole show will simply focus on girls with big boobs in skimpy clothing fighting girls in even less clothing with even bigger boobs.

Let’s just move past the fact that it’s just not gonna be the best show of the season and focus on something else, because what this show will feature is yuri content, a lot of it actually, if what the first episode had to offer will be continued—and I sure believe it will.

So far, it really all reminds me a little of Valkyrie Drive, just without the yuri romance, and funny thing is, I’m actually enjoying it. Not such a big surprise to some of you, I’m sure, but I personally didn’t expect that. So I guess this means this show is going to be my personal guilty pleasure of the season~

Fall 2015 Anime Season: First Impressions

Time is seriously going by so fast lately. I feel like it was just yesterday when we did our last round of First Impressions for the summer season.

Well, no point in complaining, since I feel like this season surpasses the last one by far, especially in the yuri department! So here are our first impressions on some of the shows of this current anime season. Enjoy~

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??
Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life

Yes, yes, YES! I was waiting for this one for a long while, and it’s finally here!
Time to enjoy watching the daily lives of our favorite group of adorable cafe waitresses. The first episode alone already made me realize how much I was actually missing this show. It’s not only the characters, but the whole feeling that this one gives you while watching. Also, did I mention that I love their cute outfits and the whole town they live in. It’s so peaceful, it’s just calms me down.
