Wrapping things up but ensuring we've got some sequel bait, Tensura 2 Part 2 didn't really end with a bang but all things considered it ended as well as it could. Be sure to read the full review.
Seirei Gensouki has brought its season to an end. Kind of. Maybe. It was the last episode at least and MAL says it is done. That pretty much nothing felt different about this episode to any other and things are as open as they've been all along probably doesn't make much difference to the overall review of Seirei Gensouki at this point.

I really enjoyed the comedy harem My Next Life as a Villainess so was genuinely excited to dive into All Routes Lead to Doom! X this season. Discussing the episodes with Irina and Crow also seemed like it would be a highlight. And yet, as the season progressed it became clear that lightning wasn't going to strike twice for this harem isekai. Be sure to read the full review.

Post sponsored by Crow's World of Anime. Mahouka Koukou no Yuutousei has Miyuki literally take to the air for its penultimate episode. It is a wonderful celebration of magic that pretty much skates over the sabotage plot in the background. Still, pretty. Be sure to read the full review.

Fight, fight, fight!!! Okay, we finally get Rimuru and friends vs Clayman and puppets and I wonder if the power of friendship triumphs manipulation? That said, there's a few brilliant moments to be found this week in Tensura 2. Be sure to read the full review.
Seirei Gensouki has Rio learning the hard way that things don't stand still while you are away. Which is kind of nice that Claire's life has continued despite his absence even if things aren't going so well. Be sure to read the full review.
I really don't like when stories have characters behave in illogical ways and then later try to build some kind of motivation behind it that makes it all make sense. It doesn't change the fact that their actions were kind ridiculous. So it is with Duke Carmine in Realist Hero and honestly all of the people standing against Souma more or less just fell apart this week. Be sure to read the full review.
