Finished the first season of Blood Blockade Battlefront, the last episode was essentially a movie.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed it, but as someone who never read the manga but is aware Black and White are anime only characters, I can't help but feel that they might have been stealing the spotlight from the main characters. Especially since most of the stories revolving around the rest of the cast were self-contained, I'm not sure if the original manga is episodic like that or not. I do know season 2 is a much more straightforward adaptations so we'll see how that goes.

 

There wasn't a single dull moment in the show, the animation was so consistently good it was kind of shocking. Also absolutely nailed Nightow's style and visual flair, I'd say even better than the Trigun anime and movie. If Trimax were ever to be adapted, even though the franchise is so heavily associated with Madhouse, I'd really prefer if Bones were to be the one to animate it. 

Hell, as much as I like the music (especially that ED), it felt weird to watch a Nightow show without Tsuneo Imahori doing the music.  I get it's for a younger, trendier audience and the teens™ want pop music and not "the guitarist from Seatbelts" but still.

 

I should also probably get around to watching the Gungrave anime and see how it compares. I tried playing the games but... They weren't really my thing, gameplay-wise.

I saw the first two episodes and I didn't continue because I thought it would mostly be fanservice for the male character or something like that.

I finished watching Devilman Crybaby last night and despite the major problems I have with its portrayal of Ryo, it's really rather good. As a long time Devilman fan I'm pretty satisfied. So if you like Devilman like I do, or just want a cool, mega violent and sex riddled anime to watch, give it a shot.

Also its remake of the old Devilman No Uta  is a banger and I love it.

I came into this season looking forward to a lot of shows and discovered a few more, now that everything has had at least one episode I'd like to share some first/early thoughts:

  • Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card: More same old CCS with a modern flourish, she's still as precious as ever.
  • Dagashi Kashi 2: I could not finish season one of Dagashi Kashi, it looks very nice and has two amazing girls, but the pacing was dreadfully slow. I didn't really expect much from this one after seeing the art quality drop in the promotional material, but then I heard it was going to be a short, I decided to check out the first episode and it was surprisingly better than I expected. The less detailed models allows them to have more dynamic, expressive animation. The short format helped the pacing and it flowed a lot better, overall not bad. The OP/EDs kind of suck compared to season one, though.
  • Darling in the Franxx: I wasn't sure how to feel about a Mecha anime joint production between Trigger and A-1, it's got some big names involved and Aniplex is pushing the fuck out of it. First episode was very derivative, there is almost nothing original. There is potentiality, however. The MC and the other pilots in training seem very bland and uninspired, I will chose to believe it was intentional as they are expendable soldiers groomed only to control big robots. Zero Two can be the catalyst for their change/growth, on that subject I immediately love everything about Zero Two, she so far is the highlight of the show. I want to see more of this world and it's characters, even if it never becomes anything more than what it is I will continue to watch it because I love Trigger, it looks great and has my boy Imaishi as action animation director. Also the main mech has boobs, a metal skirt and a robutt and I think they control and power the mechs by basically fucking, so that's cool.
  • Devilman Crybaby: I'm not familiar at all with Nagai's work and I'm not very versed in Yuasa's shows, with that said so far I think it's great. Netflix already dumped the whole thing as they would do so, which I guess is better than keeping it hostage until Spring, but I prefer the weekly watching experience as opposed to BINGE so I have only watched a few episodes. It oozes with style and holy hell, was not expecting so much sex. A solid contender for AOTS, for sure.
  • Junji Ito Collection: When this was announced I was exited, but at the same time I know Ito's manga can never ever be properly adapted into motion, especially not with a TV anime by DEEN of all studios. I didn't have high expectations and after a few episodes yeah, it's very mediocre, it looks cheap as shit and there's nothing creative being done with how it's presented. I'll continue to watch it in anticipation of what exact stories they will adapt.
  • Mitsuboshi Colors: It's silly and cute. Three young girls have a group dedicated to keeping the peace in their city and in the first episode they purchase a replica RPG and attempt to kill their police officer friend. This will quell and satisfy my hunger. Wee Sushie liek loli rofl
  • A Place Further than the Universe: I did not hear a thing about this show before I watched it, I only did because it was literally the first episode of new anime in 2018. Two episodes in and I love it. A bunch of girls want to travel to Antarctica, against all odds, each with a personal goal. It's an original show by Madhouse written by a guy involved with Nichijou and Steins;Gate, two of my all time faves. A new character was introduced in the second episode and moments in I was absolutely loving the dynamics between her and everyone. I love the visuals, it's competently directed and composed, with Madhouse being shaky in the last few years this is a return to form. I was not expecting this, very nice!!
  • Pop Team Epic: I already talked about it a bit but the second episode was INFINITELY better than the first. There were actual original jokes this time instead of just references and I found myself laughing at them constantly. The OP was also unveiled this episode and holy shit, it's amazing. The visuals are fantastic and the song ain't too bad either, I have not fallen in love with the visuals of an OP like this since Mob Psycho, OP of the season no doubt and already a contender for OP of the year, THE YEAR. If you watched the first episode and thought "what the fuck", give the second one a try, at least the first half. Unfortunately the sound continues to be poorly mixed in some scenes, which is odd.
  • Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san/Skilled Teaser Takagi-san: A boy tries to outsmart and embarrass his female, fiveheaded friend and always fails, it's simple, but entertaining. I've read a bit of the manga but not too much. I'm not sure about the voice acting choices, it sounds like Megumin teasing Koichi Hirose, but I think I'll warm up to them. LOVE HER MASSIVE FIVEHEAD
  • Violet Evergarden: Aw shit, here it is, this is the big one, THIS is the one to save anime. Out of all the shows this season nothing was hyped up as much as this, it's been talked about for years and did it live up to the hype? Absolutely not, it has some amazing production values and polish for a TV anime, even for Kyoani's standards, but the story so far is nothing special. I like this idea of pretty girls ghostwriting formal letters for incompetent bumpkins, but beyond that premise it's got very little to back it up. Kyoto Animation hasn't made a truly great show in years, I mean they still look great, but... geez.

tOnv2KUl.jpg

In conclusion, I only watch chinese flipbooks for the drawings of girls. BUT SERIOUSLY, Winter 2018 really is one of the most jam packed seasons in recent memory, not everything I listed is a winner but there are definitely some gems here. I urge everyone to check out Crying Devilman if you haven't, and also check out A Place Further than the Universe, they're both something special. The latter especially surprised me, I think a lot of people are going to sleep on it. I'm not the most critical person when it comes to shows and this all subject to change as it moves forward, so basically, uh, anime is saved.

So I saw Episode one of Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card and the final episode of Yuki Yuna is a Hero ~Hero Chapter~. Wow, magical girl shows sure have epic shit. Also, I just finished watching Magical Girl Raising Project, and damn... I felt sorry for Snow White and Ripple. At least it does have a decent ending. Hopefully we might get a second season for this, but I don't think that's not going to happen. And speaking of magical girls, Kira Kira Precure a la mode's almost over, we're getting a new Precure on February 4th. It's called Hugtto! Precure.

Discotek surprised us with an official Osomatsu-kun sub!

That's great! For a long time the only subs we had of '88 Osomatsu-kun were subs of the Spanish dub, which was serviceable but far from perfect. I know there are a few folks around here like me who like Osomatsu-san, so if you want to check out the older shows then support Discotek, please!

I hope we can see an official sub of '66 Osomatsu-kun in the future. I find it more charming than '88 but I won't complain!

So it seems that we got a 7th Precure on Kira Kira Precure a la mode, and guess who it is? That's right, she's Pekorin and they made her adorable! She reminds me of Minky Momo for some reason. I hope the final battle episode is going to be awesome! And please Toei, make the ending have an climax ending.
