Summer 2016: The rest of the field… 2nd Half!

This post is brought you by Kouhei Inuzuka and his lovely daughter Tsumugi from Amaama to Inazuma. This series is similar to Koufuku Graffiti where Kouhei goes on a culinary journey after his wife has passed away.

But thanks to Tsumugi-chan and Kotori Iida, Kouhei Inuzuka is getting better at cooking as he’s motivated to give his daughter a chance to eat yummy food. I have to say, TMS Entertainment is awesome of making this sweet anime series!

01. orange

I’ll start with orange as Naho Takamiya is trying to rescue Kakeru Naruse from his eventual demise 10 years from now. Unfortunately, Naho has made a critical mistake as inviting Kakeru together with her friends has caused his mother to commit suicide, which affected Kakeru so much that he’s wanting to end his life in order to join his mother and apologize.

Yeah, Naho’s first action was the most regretful that she did and I’m worried that it’ll go downhill from there. Now, the only thing that she can do is to prevent Kakeru’s suicide from happening. On the plus side though, there’s a hint that Hiroto Suwa got a letter from his future self, so it seems that he’ll help Naho on changing Kakeru’s fate!

Apart from that, Telecom Animation Film and TMS Entertainment are doing great leading up to the halfway point. Let’s hope that they can keep it up until the end!


Moving onto TABOO TATTOO where Justice “Seigi” Akatsuka met Brad Blackstone, Bluesy Fruesy’s partner who went to Selinistan only to betray the kingdom afterwards. Speaking of BB, he’s training Seigi-kun on using Void Maker properly so that he’ll not get devoured by the Source.

One more thing, Aryabhata has arrived to Japan as the princess wants to recreate the world in her image via controlling all 4 tattoo ruins. Of course, the United States doesn’t want a middle-eastern kingdom to become the second superpower, so America will launch an invasion towards Selinistan just to show the kingdom that they’re number one in the world!

Yeah, this anime is getting complicating now that both powers wanted to show who’s number one. While there would be some comedy bits here and there, watching TABOO TATTOO can be a mood-whiplashing experience!

03. Mob Psycho 100

Next up is Mob Psycho 100 where this is the time where Shigeo Kageyama shows that you cannot mess with him nor his family. So while he displays powerful psychic powers once his emotion levels such as anger and sadness has reached 100%, this is the time where Mob shows the most terrifying power of all when he’s unconscious.

In fact, this ???% mode was first used when Mob passed-out while trying to save his brother Ritsu from thugs. Unfortunately, the ???% mode proved to be dangerous that it destroys anything and now he even drains psychic powers too like Teruki Hanazawa, where his cockiness bite him in the ass after abusing his own powers.

With that said, Shigeo Kageyama doesn’t want to use his psychic powers much as he wants to focus on building up his body to impress Tsubomi Takane, although he’s still clueless on what’s happening to his surroundings.

04. B-Project: Kodou*Ambitious

Let’s move onto TM Revolution and MAGES’ B-Project where Tsubasa Sumisora did a great job fixing problems to some of the members, even though most of them are pure luck. And while THRIVE, MooNs, and Kitakore are competing to see who’s the best, having Tsubasa-chan as their A&R helped them unite with a common goal!

Of course, it’s not like B-Project will have a smooth success as Tsubasa-chan will try to help them in dealing with scandals, stage mishaps, and smear tactics in a daily basis. One more thing, nice seeing Takanori Nishikawa making his cameo appearance!

05. Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE: 0096

And finally, here’s Gundam Unicorn as the series moves to its final stages where Full Frontal and the Sleeves will use the Laplace’s Box to create Side Co-Prosperity Sphere, where the Spacenoids will have economic benefits without Earth’s influence. Basically, the space colonies will become richer at the expense of Earth, which will lead another conflict just like the previous wars of the Universal Century.

Of course, Banagher Links and Audrey Burne will try to stop Full Frontal from reaching the box as they want to open it and share its contents towards everyone, something that the Earth Federation and some higher-ups from the Anaheim Electronics will do everything to destroy Laplace’s Box. While I won’t expect new footage, watching Gundam Unicorn again is making me excited!

With that said, I’ll see you again at the end of September for its conclusion!
