Anime Sunday: Most Anticipated Spring 2018 Anime

This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering some of the new shows that’ll be airing this upcoming season. It’s my Most Anticipated Spring 2018 Anime!

Mahou Shoujo Ore: I have no freaking clue at all about what this show is about. All I know is it’s an adaptation of a Manga and that the title makes me really interested in seeing what’s going on. For those unaware, Ore is the distinctly male pronoun used be oneself. So the fact that the show is called Magical Girl Me (with a huge male undertone) makes me curious. It also reminds of Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Which was a fairly amusing series on it’s own.

Golden Kamuy: I read the first chapter of this Manga a while back and was pretty interested. Now that it’s getting an Anime I’ll probably give this a shot. It’s definitely not for kids, as it’s got a very serious tone, but for those more mature Anime fans, this might be a good show to watch. We’ll see.

Honorable Mentions:

My Hero Academia Sesaon 3: I really need to watch the past two seasons as I’ve heard only great things about this series and I personally enjoyed the hell out of the early chapters of the original source material myself. So this is getting an Honorable Mention.

Persona 5: Again like My Hero Academia, I’ve only heard amazing things about Persona 5. I probably won’t personally watch this series until I get around to buying and playing the game. But I imagine fans of the game and Persona series in general will want to watch this.

That’s it for this week’s Anime Sunday. Any shows you are looking forward to you think I missed? Leave them in a comment below!

 

 

Light Novel Thursday: Kore wa Zombie desu ka? by Shinichi Kimura

This week for Light Novel Thursday I’m covering a fairly hilarious series, in case you couldn’t tell just from the picture above. It’s time to be become a Maso-Shoujo with Kore wa Zombie desu ka?, or Is This a Zombie? in English, by Shinichi Kimura!

Plot Synopsis:  Ayumu Aikawa is a zombie resurrected by a necromancer named Eucliwood Hellscythe after being killed by a serial killer. As he tries to make the best of his undead life, he encounters a Masō-Shōjo named Haruna and inadvertently takes her magic powers, being forced to become a Masō-Shōjo (and thereby crossdress) in the process. With Eucliwood, Haruna, and a vampire ninja named Seraphim living with him, Ayumu helps battle demons known as Megalos while trying to figure out the mystery behind his own death.

Plot: This series doesn’t take itself seriously at all, which is good because everyone needs a good laugh every now or than. That being said, it does have a plot and it does fairly well sticking to it, at least from the volumes I’ve read (Volumes 1 and 2). If you don’t mind laughing, you’ll find the plot satisfactory enough.

Characters: Ayumu is a total dork, he’s also a zombie who can utilize the entirety of a human bodies strength because he’ll just keep repairing the damage he inflicts when using that much power. Haruna is everyone’s butt monkey for a while, I actually don’t like her all that much, hopefully in later volumes she goes through some much needed character development. Yuu and Sera are both interesting characters on their own.

Art: It’s nothing like No Game No Life, but it’s alright and it does the plot justice.

Overall: If you love to laugh, or just love a good comedy series, you’ll love this one.

For those who like: Laughing, Interesting Characters, A Cross-Dressing Main Character.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, or a less than serious plot.
