Weekly Shounen Jump
Now that every show has had a few episodes to strut its stuff, it’s time to tell you what we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Summer 2016 blogging schedule.
As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season . . . is what we used to say, but with 2-3 episodes under our belts, we’re pretty confident in our picks. Will some of them blow up in our faces? Probably. But this is what we’re going with.
In staff news, Zanibas is back! Partially. He was planning to do a couple of shows this season, but his new job or whatever (everyone on the RC staff seems to have just moved, gotten a new job, or both—I’m in the both + more camp) is busier than expected, so he’s going to stick with one for now and come on stronger next season. And since that one show has already all aired, Netflix-style, you can expect his post on the series soon.
In show news, I decided to discontinue coverage of Sousei no Onmyouji at the season break, as did Jig with Kuromukuro. We don’t like to drop shows as a rule, but while neither of us disliked these shows exactly, they were becoming a bad use of our blogging time. Apologies to fans of those series, though I think the shows we’re covering instead are well worth the lapsed coverage.
As for continuing shows, Cherrie is keeping Re: Zero, as is Zephy continuing with Macross. Passerby is also doing Planetarian, which, since it’s an ONA it isn’t listed on the schedule any more than Gundam Unicorn was, but it’s definitely getting coverage. Because Pa-kun is a maso like that. In manga news, Samu will be blogging the last few chapters of Bleach, and Enzo will resume covering Hunter x Hunter when it gets back from hiatus, so it’s been removed from the schedule for now.
That’s all I have for now. If there are any changes, this post will be updated accordingly. Thank you as always for reading as we geek out about anime, and geeking out along with us. Let’s have another great season!
