Fukumenkei Noise – 01

「ぼくたちは、ほんとのこころを、かくしてる」 (Bokutachi wa, Honto no Kokoro o, Kakushiteru)
“We’re Hiding How We Truly Feel”

I feel like I always say this, but it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged a shoujo romantic/comedy/slice-of-life, and I think I need more of these in my life for some feel-good anime.

Roku de Nashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records – 02

「ほんのわずかなやる気」 (Hon’no wazukana yaruki)
“Just the Slightest Bit of Motivation”

RokuAka has an identity of it’s own somewhere in there, but still feels grounded in much of the tropes that come with magical fantasy light novels.

Tsugumomo – 02

「図書室と幼馴染」 (Tosho-shitsu to Osananajimi)
“The Library and the Childhood Friend”

GRANBLUE FANTASY The Animation – 02

「旅立ち」 (Tabidachi)

Kabukibu! – 01

「こいつぁ春から……」 (Koitsu ~a haru kara……)

Hinako Note – 01

「とくぎは、かかしです」 (Tokugi wa, Kakashi desu)
“My Talent is Being a Scarecrow”

I think I may have found a partial replacement for the slice-of-life void that last season left in my heart.

Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul – 01

「Red Dragon」

The changes to the world are interesting. The characters are better than they’re not. It’s not totally there yet, but it has my attention.

Sakura Quest – 01

「魔の山へ」 (Manoyama Eh)
“Off To Manoyama”

Sakura Quest isn’t a show I’d recommend to everyone, but I must admit that there’s a spunky charm to it that managed to capture my attention before its first episode came to a close.
