Autumnal Assessment 2017

A fresh season of Anime is here.  Why not blather on to some extent about how we feel about some of these things?

Two Car Gristle: WATCH THEM ALL! The Sidehackers: the anime.
Bob: 3 Episode Watch. Three may be enough for me; I suspect it’s a one-trick sort of show.
Taishou Chicchai-san Gristle: 1 Episode Watch. “He touches his family’s sword to pleasure himself.”
Bob: WATCH THEM ALL! Bob!
Bob! What are you doing?!
Wake up, Bob!
You don’t have to watch everything from the Taisho era!
BOB!
(I can’t snap him out of it)
BOB IT’S A YAOI
Robomasters Gristle: 1 Episode Watch. STEM Bachelors of Science: The Anime
Bob: WATCH THEM ALL! This season’s 7O3X or just a sports anime with robots? I’m going to watch it all, though!
Kino’s Journey
-the Beautiful World-
Gristle: 3 Episode Watch. One bike-curious lady continues her journey
Bob: 3 Episode Watch. Still have to finish the original Kino’s Journey first, but a tentative yes!
Girls’ Last Tour Gristle: 3 Episode Watch. Desert Punk meets Casshern Sins meets generic anime design of the late 2000s
Bob: 3 Episode Watch. What if Flip Flappers was Grimdark? Or you know, more so?
Garo: Vanishing Line Gristle: 3 Episode Watch. Where the only clue is a casino in Reno across from the bowling alley
Bob: 3 Episode Watch. I could go for a good urban fantasy right about now.
Boku no Kanojo ga Majime Sugiru Shojo Bitch na Ken Gristle: 3 Episode Watch. How do I fuck better? I better read some Dr. Phil-Sensei.
Bob: 3 Episode Watch. If the show is half as fun as the title, I think I will be amused!
Dies irae Gristle: 3 Episode Watch. We’ve got spirit, how ’bout you, we’ve got spirit, end the world into goo!
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. The historical fiction concept of this magical fantasy is just worthy enough for me to sample.
Anime-Gataris Gristle: 3 Episode Watch. “We only wear pinkuu~ on Wednesdays”
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. Hoping it’s more like Genshiken than just another Slice-of-Life filler show.
Osake wa Fuufu
ni Natte kara
Gristle: NO Drinking waifu is best waifu, unless you’re on a 12 Step Program
Bob: 3 Episode Watch. It just might be the right choice if you liked Madoka’s mom as a character concept. I’m looking for con cocktail ideas.
Urahara Gristle: 1 Episode Watch. From outer space to Japan, Harajuku girls.
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. Eh, why not? There’s always that chance it could actually be the new FLCL. I’m sure I’ll know right away.
Netojuu no Susume Gristle: 1 Episode Watch. Welcome to the NHK, genderswapped.
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. Looks pretty NEET. I hope it’s more Princess Jellyfish than Umaru.
Evil or Live Gristle: 1 Episode Watch. Japan’s fantasy to curb declining birth rates
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. Vaguely relevant to modern life? Does it have shades of Deadman Wonderland? I’ll give it one chance to impress.
Onyankopon Gristle: 1 Episode Watch. Afrobeat and dancing
Bob: NO My snap judgement is to wait and see. It does have a unique look.
Just Because! Gristle: NO Watch this? Sure, but “Just Because”
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. I’ll give an original anime a chance if it doesn’t look like a total waste of time.
Children of the Whales Gristle: NO **disables Federation Space until Kirk and Crew bring more Whale Children**
Bob: 1 Episode Watch. I just have to know what drugs they’re taking.
Ousama Game Gristle: NO Didn’t we play Osama game after 9/11?
Bob: NO Is Future Diary by any other name just as craptastic? Here’s a bright idea: if your cell phone connects you to murderers, JUST DELETE THE APP!
Konohana Kitan Gristle: NO Kittypaws :3
Bob: NO I can already see the forum posts about this from that guy. Please don’t tell me that you like it, or why. I already know.
Himouto! Umaru-chan R

 

Gristle: NO Fuck this shit.
Bob: KILL IT
WITH FIRE
How about you take your Lays-and-Pepsi lifestyle and just throw yourself and your waifu in the goddamned trash?!
Omiai Aite wa Oshiego, Tsuyoki na, Mondaiji. Gristle: KILL IT
WITH FIRE
What if we made those American teacher-sleeping-with-student scandals into an anime?
Bob: KILL IT
WITH FIRE
THIS IS NOT OKAY JAPAN, AND I THINK WE’VE HAD THIS TALK BEFORE.
Imouto sae Ireba Ii. Gristle: KILL IT
WITH FIRE
Fuck this shit even more. Who does siscon, anyway?!
Bob: KILL IT
WITH FIRE
Every time I see another one of these on the schedule, I understand more and more why Japanese couples only have sex once.
Code:Realize
~Sousei no Himegimi~
Bob: Honourable Mention: When the first line is
“I want to touch you” …
Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond Gristle: Honourable Mention: Bountiful B’s Bring Boobs, Bombs, Bombastic Ballyhoo
