Summer 2017 Anime Premiere Masterpost

I watched so much anime over the last two weeks, readers. More than I think I’ve ever tackled during the start of a new season. You may recall that I reviewed a handful of titles for Anime Feminist during the Spring season. That handful rocketed up to a whopping seventeen titles, running the gamut from pretty awesome to huffing the fumes of existential despair.

I’m including bite-sized impressions here, and links if you want to check out the full coverage. Happy reading!

[Link] “KADO: The Right Answer” Should’ve Been a Dating Sim

Nobody seems to know what to make of KADO: The Right Answer, and that includes the production team. Like the anisotropic, KADO’s dimension beyond our own universe, the show contained multitudes: it was a deliberately paced political thriller one minute and a twist-laden character drama the next; its visuals shifted between traditional 2D animation and CG, the latter of which ranged from downright stunning to “average ATLUS game;” and while it was just sort of okay sci-fi, it eventually revealed itself to be way more engaging as a gender-equal harem show.

[LINK] [Review] Seven Mortal Sins – episode 1

sins 5

….So this is one of three shows I’m watching past the first episode this season. 

The prideful archangel Lucifer disobeys God and is cast into the lowest level of hell as a fallen angel. On her way to hell, Lucifer happens to meet a high school girl on Earth named Maria, who helps her. In hell, Lucifer meets Leviathan, and Leviathan explains to Lucifer about The Seven Deadly Sins, the seven demon king rulers of hell. After The Seven Deadly Sins seal Lucifer’s powers, Lucifer goes on a journey with Maria and Leviathan to defeat them.

I may have blacked out while writing this review. It’s all a blur.

Guri is an angel with a mysterious item that turns any two people who kiss into a couple. She appears before a high school boy named Seiji Aino. However, there is a yandere high school girl named Akane who loves Seiji.

I feel as if I have been on a journey, readers. I would like you to accompany me on it, that you may truly understand my feelings.

The opening credits attempt to provide a warning for unwary travelers, crash-zooming into the breasts of one love interest while providing us a loving close-up of the other’s panties. Because it is a generous series, it makes sure we see these highly rendered undergarments from both front and back, while the opening theme poorly attempts to mask the drill coming towards the viewers’ skulls.
