Weekly watching roundup – Spring 2016 week 13 Final Week

Final week as in still lots of things to finish over the coming week, which will still be my priority over trying out new series over the coming week. Lots of comments, so I’ve stuck them below a read more tag.

I watched the Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun OVA whilst the internet was down (one of several things that caused me to watch less anime this week). First time I’ve watched an episode illegally in a while. This OVA was certainly different – the whole anachronistic Edo-era setting took me totally by surprise. And was great fun to watch, while somehow managing to mirror the actual story of the series.

Mayoiga – A weak ending to a not overly impressive series. It was worth the watch, I guess, but the resolution at the end felt seriously weak, and there were various things along the way that don’t quite seem right. Plus the fact that there were characters that they went through the bother of introducing and who then did precisely nothing for the rest of the series. Still, like I say it was worth the watch, being an interesting series rather than the gripping one that it initially presented itself as.

Asterisk – now that’s more like how you do an ending. I was a bit confused as to why they were going beyond the end of the festa at first, but now having seen the end of the series I think it’s better that way. At the time of writing (after finishing the series, not on posting this on the blog) there are 62 days until the scheduled release of the first volume of the series in English. I look forward to getting it.

Two stand out series of the week.
The first is Kiznaiver. I could see that the series was the one that had potential, but it just wasn’t using it in the earlier episodes. All that changed in the three episodes I watched this week, though, as it finally got into its stride.

The other is Sansha Sanyou, which I had been a long way behind on. I wasn’t intending to catch up by that much, but when I reached the latest episode I found myself disappointed that there wasn’t more yet. That speaks volumes about the series…

Anyway, about another 80 episodes still to watch, and some series are about to end. Well, technically some already have ended, but I haven’t finished them yet.

Placed on hold:
12-sai.: Chicchana Mune no Tokimeki

I placed 12-sai on hold. It’s the only one of this season’s watches that I can’t watch legally, so I just wasn’t watching it.

That leaves about 110 episodes to watch over the next 3 weeks before the next season starts. Reckon I can do it?

Dropped:
Onigiri
Big Order (TV)

KochinPa – How much can be done with a 15 second long anime? Actually, a surprisingly large amount. So long as you don’t try to develop some sort of plot line and instead stick to light hearted comedy, 15 seconds really isn’t all that restrictive. In fact, there are things you can do with a 15 second long episode that can’t be done with a longer anime. Which is something KochinPa did a lot of. In fact it seldom did anything else. I’m not sure it did anything to advertise whatever it was that it was supposed to be advertising, but who cares?

I had stopped Hundred for so long because I was convinced it would go downhill from there. I was right.

Dropped Onigiri because I just don’t get anything. Big Order was dropped due to a certain event in the second episode. If you watched it you probably know what I’m talking about.

Finally started everything that airs this season. Not watched many episodes, though. However, I’ve almost finished what I need to do, after which I will theoretically have plenty of catch-up time.

Endride – Whoever wrote this really shouldn’t be writing stories. Or at least not publishing them. And that’s not something I say very often.

Onigiri is back on the not yet watched list as it’s now available on Viewster.

Re:Zero and Netoge going from strength to strength, with both looking like being a long way above anything else from the season.
