So, season started, and it’s pretty much how I expected it to be for now: Lots of “wat?”
Let’s start with the good stuff: Owarimonogatari, One Punch Man, Young Black Jack and Utawarerumono.
No complaints about any of these, Owari ep1 is probably my favorite episode of those 4, even though OPM was really good too, and Owari’s OP… so good, might be my 2nd or 3rd fav Monogatari OP
About Owari, I’m not exactly sure what Ougi’s goal was here, since it was obvious that she was the one who locked Araragi in there, but what does she gain from Araragi dealing with his guilt about Sodachi?
Also I liked how this entire episode was presented (even visually), with how Ougi subtly “threatened” Araragi, and how this entire episode was a solvable mystery including the ‘who’, ‘how’ and ‘why’, which I didn’t realize until Ougi said “I challenge all you readers”, I thought this was just another of Monogatari’s usual subplots^^
If this keeps up it should be on par with the first 3 seasons, don’t disappoint me Nisio Isin and shaft!
OPM was a rewatch since I already saw the niconico version of ep1, so I don’t have a lot to say about it, other than it looks even better in HD (niconico was toaster-quality), Madhouse doing a great job with the animation, I hope it stays this way and doesn’t pull an Overlord towards the end
Young Black Jack looks pretty interesting, but people in 1968 were useless^^
I can’t say much about Utawarerumono’s plot since I don’t know the VN or the prequel-anime, but the setting looks interesting and I think I’ll try marathoning the prequel-anime around tuesday/wednesday
Then there’s all the other stuff, the meh-est being Concrete Revolutio, Heavy Object and Lance n’ Masques, with Concrete Revolutio being by far the weirdest thing I’ve seen this season, it has everything: aliens, magical girls, gods, mechs, superhumans…^^
Not sure what to think of Comet Lucifer yet, its setting looks really cool, but I’m not sure if it counts as fantasy of scifi since it kinda fits into both… we’ll see
And finally the shorts, nothing really outstanding there, but short enough to keep watching them I guess
There’s still a bunch of shows that I wanna watch on the way, including some promising ones, more on that next week or so when I’ve seen them all
