What a feast this season is turning out to be. Non Non, Rokka no Yuusha, Gakkou Gurashi, Himouto and Gate are all series that I’ve kept or caught up with over the past couple of weeks, and all are series that I’ve been thoroughly enjoying. I wonder if there are more out there that I haven’t got into yet that will reach similar levels.

Apparently the manga version of Gate is a gorefest? If anyone knows whether or not the light novels are the same I’d be interested to hear. If not, I’ll probably look into it myself. I’d rather not buy something like that, but I want to buy this series…

The other series I mentioned above are all definite to-gets.

Danchigai is becoming thoroughly enjoyable, too. This is largely thanks to Satsuki, who is a definite candidate for best character of the season.

I’ve been going through and enjoying Working!! as well, but I don’t think I’ll catch up to the currently airing one before it finishes.

For every upside, though, there is also a down.

Suzakinishi… Yeah. It was never anything much. And it never got anything more.

Aoharu x Kikanjuu was probably as much a case of me not feeling like watching it at the time than anything else, although I wasn’t particularly enjoying it anyway.

Prison School was… uncomfortable. I couldn’t even make it to the start of the main story. Disliked the characters and the setting and the way things were going. That’s as far as it goes, though – just dislike rather than outright loathing which it could have been.
