「ワグナリア戦線異状なし」 (Wagunaria Sensen Ijou Nashi)

Okusama ga Seitokaichou! – 01

「生徒会長の嫁ぎ先」 (Seito Kaichou no Totsugi-saki)
“The Student Council President’s Married-into Family”

A lot flirty, a good bit ecchi … and yet, the short format makes even this simple story seem simultaneously rushed and lethargic, denying us the time it takes to properly enjoy the antics. At least for this first episode.

A slice-of-life with ghosts. What could have easily been a gag anime with a tinge of yuri became one of the more contemplative, meaningful, and life-affirming series of spring—even though a large part of the cast was already dead.

DanMachi – A Mythical Hero Rises

“The season was a success, guys. Let’s go get drunk.” And so they did.

It didn’t start out especially stunning, but the foundation was solid, and with time it began to distinguish itself from other magical-fantasy-action-harem anime. It’s more than an adventure; it’s a myth in the making. It’s a hero’s tale.
