Anime Elimination Tournament – Winter 2017 – Week 10

I can’t believe this season is near its end.

This is the first time I actually manage to follow some series weekly. I’m quite proud of myself.

This week’s ranking:

1. Gabriel DropOut & Little Witch Academia
3. Kuzu no Honkai
4. Masamune-kun no Revenge



It seems she doesn’t like it.

I really liked this anime so far, but one has to be eliminated from the tournament. Masamune-kun no Revenge is about (as you can tell from the title) the revenge of Masamune Makabe against Aki Adagaki, a childhood friend who rejected him because he was fat. Masamune suffered a lot and so he decided to become an handsome boy and make Aki fall in love with him to break her heart soon after. The anime is basically a comedy slice of life with some romance here and there; I’ve really enjoyed it, I like the characters and the facts depicted and I laughed a lot. It worsened a bit during the last episodes, but I still find it enjoyable enough. Do I recommend it? Yeah!

I was mildy excited for this anime. There wasn’t much info around, I only knew it was a seinen with an historical setting. The story is about a Heizou Hasegawa, known as Devil Heizou, the chief officer of the safety department. This show has an episodic format; each one focuses on a different story, with lots of flashbacks involved. The action scenes aren’t the most important part of the story. It focuses a lot more on the characters and their relationship with each other, which is nice.Some of the episodes were really entertaining and that’s how it managed to be at this point in the tournament. The graphic quality isn’t amazing, actually it’s quite poor, but it’s effective since this show focuses more on the plot than on the art.

Do I recommend it? If you’re a fan of the genre, then yes. If you don’t like historical dramas, then, this anime might not be for you.

Anime Elimination Tournament – Winter 2017 – Week 8

Establishing a ranking is getting more and more difficult with each passing week. I’m going to regret each anime that gets eliminated at this point.

I don’t really know which anime I liked the least, actually. Each one was pretty good in its own ways, but there needs to be a decision.

Here’s the ranking:

  1. Gabriel DropOut
  2. Little Witch Academia
  3. Kuzu no Honkai
  4. Masamune-kun no Revenge
  5. Onihei
  6. Fuuka

Bye bye, Fuuka.


A generic screenshot for a generic show

Haruna Yuu, the main character of this anime, is an introverted boy who spends a lot of time on Twitter. One day, he meets Akitsuki Fuuka, who is your typical bright cheerful girl. Fuuka loves to sing and pushes Yuu and other people to form a band with her. Fuuka is a big fan of Hinashi Koyuki, who happens to (conveniently) be Yuu’s childhood friend.

Predictably, an awkward love triangle develops. Perhaps not even that, since it seems that Koyuki is the only one conscious of her own feelings. The show was pretty interesting at the beginning, but the lack of character development made it quite boring already. At the end of episode eight we are left with a cliffhanger: maybe something is starting to develop… but I had enough.

Basing on the previous episodes, I fear that whichever cue won’t be developped as well as I wish it to be, and the anime that are still in the game are all quite good, so there is a certain level to keep  by now.

Do I recommend it? Actually, yes. It’s by no means a bad show; don’t set your expectation too high and it should be a good anime to spend your free time with.
