Spring 2018: The rest of the field…

Today’s post is brought you by Mob Psycho 100 as Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama is currently writing about Arataka Reigen’s accounts of the first season, even though Reigen will flat-out fabricate it to look like he’s the main character despite the fact that Shigeo did the heavy lifting. Besides, it’s not like Arataka’s book would become a best-seller anyways, but the flip-side is that Mob Psycho 100 will have another season!

By the way, I’ve decided to drop both Alice or Alice and Magical Girl Site on my watch list because I’m getting more busy in real-life. Not only that, but Alice or Alice is too short for my taste whereas Magical Girl Site is too grimdark for a magical girl show. I’m okay with Puella Magi Madoka Magica, but Magical Girl Site is not for me.

01. My Hero Academia

Anyways, let’s start with the rest of shows airing in Spring 2018 with the 3rd Season of My Hero Academia. With the growing threat of villains ever since the Hero Killer Stain came to threaten the peace across Japan, the U.A. High School has decided to make their students ready to face those villain by sending them to a training camp. For Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, he and his classmates will have to become stronger and be prepared at all times, especially when Tomura Shigaraki and the League of Villains are about to make their move.

With that said, I’m excited for the third season because Izuku and his friends will go to greater heights this time around (except for Katsuki Bakugou) with new heroes to meet and greater challenges to face during their training camp. Of course, I’m expecting All Might to reveal his true identity and his predecessor too in future episodes.

02. Gundam Build Divers

And now, let’s end this post with Gundam Build Divers which is Gundam Build Fighters set in an alternate universe (or in the far future) where Gunpla Battles are being waged via a popular online game called Gundam Battle Nexus. So while we’ll never see the likes of Meijin Kawaguchi III, we got an equivalent named Kyouya Kujo who’s the current GBN world champion and the leader of the winning team Avalon, piloting the awesome Gundam AGE-2 Magnum. This inspired our protagonist named Riku Mikami to join Gundam Battle Nexus together with his friends.

Anyways, this is quite a departure from the previous Gundam Build Fighters series as while we have mobile suits from Gundam AGE and Gundam Reconguista in G represented on this show, but the characters scanning their gunpla and play Gunpla Battles inside pods is a nice reference to Gunpla Builders Beginning G before it was overtaken by Gundam Build Fighters. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that Gundam Build Divers is a nice change of pace after Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, so I’m hoping that it’ll be a fun time watching this new Gundam show.

But that’s about it for the rest of the shows airing in Spring 2018. One last thing, I’ll be watching WIXOSS so it’s not like I dropped that show!
