This post is brought you by Kyoto Animation’s adaptation of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid.
It was a good ending and I enjoy both Tohru and Kobayashi-san’s bonding throughout the series. Heck, even Kanna Kamui is so cute that Riko Saikawa always breaks her hives every time Kanna touches her!
01. My Hero Academia
Let’s start with My Hero Academia as the second season has arrived, but Yomiuri TV picked the series up after Mainichi Broadcasting System retired the NichiGo timeslot (which is stupid for their part) and yet it’s still alive and kicking with Izuku Midoriya getting stronger in preparation of inheriting All Might’s mantle!
Still, I hope that the second season will be amazing as new challenges will face Izuku and his friends, all while taking on the League of Villains as they pose a threat to All Might and the rest of the heroes!
02. Frame Arms Girl
Now for those who watched the anime adaptation of Konami’s Busou Shinki toyline back in 2012, look no further than ZEXCS and Studio A-CAT’s Frame Arms Girl which spun-off from Kotobukiya’s Frame Arms model kit line. Anyways, the story revolves around a girl named Ao Gennai where she must take care of her first FA Girl named Gourai through battles and other menial tasks.
While I could say that this show might be a Busou Shinki ripoff, Frame Arms Girl has some differences here and there like having a carefree female protagonist being exposed to the world of plastic models, especially when it packaged with an action figure where Gourai told her about assembling parts carefully and such. As for the animation, it looks okay but I feel that I’ll just have fun watching it instead of taking this show seriously.
03. Sakura Quest
Moving onto P.A.Works’ Sakura Quest where Yoshino Koharu, a country girl who had a hard time finding jobs in Tokyo, suddenly becomes a queen of a mini kingdom of Chupakabura in which sits at a town of Manoyama. And believe me, that town is so barren that old folks are struggling to make ends meet without a flock of visitors.
Anyways, this show is one of those who are promoting a town somewhere in Japan. But as far as I researched the town of Manoyama, it doesn’t exists nor has an equivalent. On the other hand, it reminds me of Non Non Biyori when it shows the countryside, yet Sakura Quest doesn’t show the beauty of it as Manoyama is currently a ghost towm. Still, I’m hoping that Yoshino would help revitalize the town even if she’s gonna do it for one year!
04. Fukumenkei Noise
Next up is Brain’s Base adaptation of Fukumenkei Noise where the story revolves around Nino “Alice” Arisugawa who is not only reunited with her childhood friend Kanade Yuzuriha, but also found her first crush Momo Sakaki after disappearing when she was a child. While she strives to improve her singing, Nino is conflicted on whether to choose Momo or Yuzu.
Anyways, I have to say that the studio did a good job on this adaptation so far. Then again, I wonder how will this love triangle play out as Nino has a crush on Momo, but Yuzu has some feelings for Arisugawa. It’ll be filled with angst and drama in future episodes, but this show looks good!
05. Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria
And now, I present you the spin-off of DanMachi called Sword Oratoria where it revolves around Aiz Wallenstein and her Loki Familia!
Gotta say that J.C.Staff made a thrilling start to this spin-off, but of course I’m interested to why Aiz became one of the best swordsman that Bell Cranel was inspired by her to become stronger. With that said, I can’t wait for this Sword Princess and her party on their adventures!
Anyways, I end this post with Kemono Friends. For a CGI anime based on a discontinued mobile game, Kemono Friends has a deep plot to it as Serval and Kaban (or Bag) are finding out what’s going on at Japari Park which it got hit by a Cerulean outbreak.
Now while it fascinated most of the viewers who watched this show, seems that Nexon might plan to bring back the game due to it’s sudden popularity! With that said, I’ll see you in the middle of May…
