I’ve been really enjoying the last month of brand new summer anime. There are shows that I knew I would enjoy. But there have been some fun..and not so fun surprises along the way, too. There are several shows that I thought I wouldn’t care for…but actually do! And ones I was looking forward to but was disappointed. Let’s discuss a couple, and then I want to hear from you! ❤
Surprise! God Eater. While I highly anticipated it, the first episode was pretty bland. Thankfully, it improved during the second episode due to a character death (always makes things interesting!) and the third episode had great fighting eye candy! The show went from “I could drop this and not care” to “wow, I definitely need to tune in next week”.
Disappointed. Classroom Crisis. I anticipated this show because I like near futuristic settings. But I almost died. of boredom. during that second episode. I have never seen so much narrative exposition in one episode before. I generally do not mind some narrative–its one way to get a world and its rules set up fast. But that…that was too much of too much.
So how about you? Any Summer shows you were looking forward to but found disappointing? Or how about a show you thought you wouldn’t care for and then really liked? Surprise me! 😀
