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

This post is a special one as I celebrate my birthday by bringing you Lime from Saber Marionette J, one of my favorite character played by the legendary seiyuu Megumi Hayashibara.

Anyways, I’ll talk about some shows airing in Fall 2018 and while I’m still busy with real-life matters, I have some time watching anime and blogging about it. Then again, I have to clear some back-logs before the end of the year such as Banana Fish and Shingeki no Kyojin!

01. Zombieland Saga

But now, let’s go first into Zombieland Saga and after the weird first episode, seems that Sakura Minamoto is living the dream of becoming an idol as her buddies have woken up from their deep slumber… Well, except for Tae Yamada who is still acts like a zombie. Hell, we don’t know who or what she really is.

In any case, the idol group Franchouchou got some fans here and there as they dabbled in various genres and other shenanigans, from rapping to participating in obscure events like the Kashima Gatalympics. Still, Kotaro Tatsumi said to them that their efforts are not enough to revitalize Saga Prefecture and really, he’s one nutcase who wants to revive a prefecture from obscurity.

On the other hand, while the rest of the girls are okay being idols, especially Yugiri and Saki Nikaido, some of them like Junko Konno and Ai Mizuno are having doubts on themselves since they’re veterans and both of them are from different eras (Junko from the Showa era, Ai-chan from the Heisei era). Heck, they have phobias like Junko Konno being afraid of heights since she died on a plane crash, while Ai-chan got scared of thunderstorms as she got struck by lightning. With that said, I’m hoping that they’ll pull ahead and become legends across Japan. Better than being zombies forever!

02. Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet

Next up is Kishuku Gakkou no Juliet as we now reached the halfway point with Dahlia High School’s sports festival. Now while it’ll be the battle between the White Cats of the West versus the Black Dogs of Touwa, this sports festival is a place where Juliet Persia wants to prove to everyone that she’s a strong woman who can lead the nation, although there’s Romio Inuzuka who wants to date Juliet amidst the hostilities between the Western Principality and Touwa.

On the other hand, there’s a power struggle within the White Cats as Juliet Persia and her allies will have to deal with Aby Ssinia, who came from a lower class together with Somali Longhaired and he really hates the nobles that he wants to overthrow them using underhand tactics. Then again, the only person who can cheat his way to victory is Chizuru Maru but let’s face it, Maru failed to do so. But anyways, it’ll be interesting to see how the sports festival plays out! However, I fear that it’ll end in tragedy!

03. Hinomaru Zumou

And finally, let’s end this post with Hinomaru Zumou as Odachi High School’s sumo club now has 6 members, 5 sumo wrestlers and a manager. But then again, they’re not a powerhouse so Kirihito Tsuji trained the other members to not only mitigate their weaknesses, but play out their strengths until they’re ready to face tougher foes. As for Hinomaru Ushio, he has a bigger stair to climb as he must become stronger in order to not only defeat the so-called “national treasures” of amateur sumo, but also become a professional sumo wrestler by earning the yokozuna title in the high school national sumo tournament.

I have to say that this show is getting interesting as Hinomaru is not the one who pushes himself to become stronger, even as far as facing a professional sumo wrestler, but the likes of Yuuma Gojo, Chihiro Kunisaki, Shinya Ozeki, and newcomer Kei Mitsuhashi are trying their utmost best to become better sumo wrestler so that they won’t become dead weight. In any case, it’ll be very interesting once they competed in the nationals.

With that said, I’ll see you next month for the conclusion of those shows airing in Fall 2018!
