Spring 2018: The rest of the field… 2nd Half!

This post is brought you 22/7 or Nanabun no Nijyuuni. This is an idol group created by AKB48’s Yasushi Akimoto, Aniplex, and Sony Music Records where it describes as “Idols Who Transcend Dimensions” or 2D idols in short. Then again, I feel that this group is a spiritual successor to AKB0048’s NO NAME, minus Shoji Kawamori or Mari Okada’s involvement.

While I’ve listened to their first single and it was a bit good, 22/7 needs a big push like giving them an anime series. Still, let’s hope that 22/7 would succeed in a battlefield full of anime idols vying for domination such as Wake Up, Girls! and Aqours from Love Live! Oh by the way, this is not the final roster as there’s 3 more idols, but the management forgot to assign the characters to the voice actresses. For now, you’ll have to settle with 8 idols.

01. Gundam Build Divers

Let’s start things off with Gundam Build Divers where Riku Mikami and Yukio Hikada trained with various veteran players such as Tigerwolf and Shahryar to become better at Gundam Battle Nexus. Not only that, but they formed their own force called Build Divers together with Momoka Yashiro, Koichi Nanase, Sarah (which she doesn’t have a Gunpla on her own due to her mysterious circumstances), and Ayame (which she’s spying on Riku and Yukki for unknown reasons).

I must say that the protagonists, especially Riku Mikami and Yukio Hikada, got better after the first episode. Of course, I want to see more on some of the characters such as Sarah who I feel that she’s a sentient NPC, as well as Koichi and his former team-mates. Still, their force got their first win against Rommel’s force but it’s only just the beginning of their adventure.

02. My Hero Academia

And now, let’s end this post with My Hero Academia as while the training camp went well, it all came to ruin when the villains raided the camp unexpectedly. Fortunately, some of the heroes like Izuku Midoriya and a few ones Hero Class B like Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu and Itsuka Kendou have managed to fend off villains and survived the ordeal, including rescuing Kouta, it appears that they failed to stop Dabi and his crew from capturing Katsuki Bakugou.

Well, seems that this event is a freakin’ wake-up call for the heroes at U.A. High School as they realized that they don’t save the day all the time. Then again, what’s gonna happen to Katsuki Bakugou? Will he become a villain? Still, the only thing that Midoriya and his classmates can do is to find a way to get Bakugou back without getting caught by Tomura Shigaraki and the League of Villains.

With that said, I’ll see you again in June for the conclusion of Spring 2018! And one more thing, I’m still watching Gegege no Kitaro so for those who hate this show just because it replaced Dragon Ball Super? You’re a freaking idiot!
