Domestic Girlfriend is melodrama from start to finish yet somehow it is a train wreck of a romance story that managed to keep me watching even while I wanted to bang the heads of all of the main characters together. I know this review is late but here are my whole series thoughts of Domestic Girlfriend.
So this one seems to be settling into the standard gag of the week kind of plot. Which makes sense given Null & Peta only has five minutes to play with.
So they threw yet another curve ball at us before the end of the tournament but we have finally gotten to curing Ruri. I have to admit it is deeply satisfying seeing all of the pieces coming together here.
Case solving Rakugo... Not sure I'm buying that but this first episode was entertaining enough if a little bit silly. I'm kind of hoping the detectives here move beyond the one note characters they portray here because otherwise it will get old fast.
Episode 2 of Ascendance of a Bookworm is as underwhelming as the first. While that's not a huge surprise, what I'm finding more of a surprise is how close to dropping this I am. I'll give it a third episode but honestly I'm not sold on Main and her quest to find or make a book.
Another sports anime potentially on the watch list this season though this one seems to be going for a more dramatic turn if the final scene of this episode is anything to go by. I guess we'll see how this goes once they actually start playing tennis.
The first episode of Assassins Pride leaves us with a lot of questions: most notably why there is no apostrophe in its title. However, despite a reasonably uninspiring first episode, I'm actually kind of wanting more of this one.
While individually both the hero and the goddess aren't exactly great, when played against one another, Cautious Hero manages to actually be kind of funny and honestly I'm enjoying this different approaching to 'heroing' so far. While not great by any means, this one is probably a keeper for the season.
Episode 2 of Ahiru no Sora may not be amazing but the general feeling behind the show is a little more positive after watching this episode. Largely that is because our main character largely just plays basketball and isn't randomly getting into fights and conflicts every other scene. It may not be mind blowing but this series is probably going to be fairly watchable if it continues along this path.
Episode 2 of Kemono Michi was more enjoyable than the first episode. The comedy is still a bit on the repetitive side but was a bit more amusing this time around.
