Summer 2016 – First Impressions, Part Two

Welp, looks like it’s time for the second wave of new summer premieres. This one’s a pretty questionable crop, frankly – sweetness & lightning is fantastic and Cheer Boys!! is perfectly reasonable, but outside of that, we’re looking at a whole bunch of middling-to-poor genre pieces without all that much to distinguish them. There are still a fair number of premieres to come, but things are looking a little dire at the two-thirds point this time. But hey, you get to read my increasingly despairing reviews either way, so, good deal!

One thought on “Summer 2016 – First Impressions, Part Two

  1. “Tsumugi is brought to life through vivid character animation and wonderfully appropriate voice acting (like in Barakamon, Tsumugi is handled by an actual child voice actress).”

    Endō Rina – who voiced Hina on Barakamon. 🙂
