Quick Look: Third Week Roundup

Per usual I have fallen behind because the weather is nice out, and that of course means I remember I own a house and with all the snow gone, it’s reminding me HEY YOU FAT FUCK, YOU HAVE SHIT FROM LAST FALL TO CLEAN UP! Fuuuuuuuck. Being an adult sucks. I also have one more First Look post coming out tonight, but forgot to save the screens I was going to use to Dropbox because reasons. So expect that too.

Ranked from highest to lowest in lowercase q for quality. Not to be confused for capital Q QUALITY which is something entirely different.

  1. Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darou ka
  2. Hestia. Just, Hestia. An Eina is fine too.

  3. Shokugeki no Soma
  4. It’s everything I expected from a real successor to the Yakitate legacy. The only way this can possibly get better, is if Gordon Ramsey makes an appearance and tells them all they’re fucking shit.

  5. Highschool DxD BorN
  6. A Koneko arc is fine too, but Issei pulling off the double-doorbell for BALANCE BREAKER? I mean, this fictional man is the hero of gentlemen everywhere.

  7. Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha ViVid
  8. Third episode is fucking where?

  9. Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
  10. It’s delightfully charming in ways described by my upcoming First Look review, because comedic body swapping can still be funny.

  11. Owari no Seraph
  12. I thought I might not like this because of the heavy undertones of Shingeki and Guilty Crown present, but once again, Hayami Saori shows up in her other show of the season to lend the perfect voice for Hiiragi, and all is right with my world.

  13. Plastic Memories
  14. Strong opening episode, decent second episode, still need to watch the third, but I am going to call this now, manly tears by the end of this show.

  15. Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu
  16. Strong opening episodes, but predictably once Haruhi enters the picture, it just stops being about Nagato and being about Haruhi, and she is 200% more annoying this time around than last. Hopefully they tone her down a bit in the coming episodes, because I quite liked the smaller cast dynamic as it was working before.

  17. Re-Kan
  18. Decent premise, but slower-paced among other shows this season. Predicting that it shifts from ghosts and spirits to CHU-CHU-KISS.

  19. Houkago no Pleiades
  20. Drift turning in the skies, on a dime, Macross-style. Great visuals, but being the late starter, not a lot to sample yet.

  21. Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken
  22. Short show, so I can’t say it hits higher than here, but it’s still a good watch.

  23. Denpa Kyoushi
  24. I’m not sure I can take any more of the pretentious hipster in this guy, he makes me look good, plus it seems far too scatterbrained, but I guess something happens soon, so it’s on-notice.

  25. Kyoukai no Rinne
  26. Not a strong opening episode, feels too much like Bleach trying to mix a little InuYasha into it with some schooldayzzzz charm in it. Also on-notice.

That’s your quick roundup for the week. Now where is my third episode of Nanoha, the one fucking show I want to watch all season?
