Anime monsoon season has arrived again, beginning with the usual torrential downpour of mediocre cartoons. The season is starting a little slow so far, but that’s really just an issue of scheduling – most of the shows I’m looking forward to have yet to premiere, and those that already have either matched or exceeded my expectations. First episodes aren’t always trustworthy, of course, particularly when it comes to animation quality, but I certainly haven’t been suffering too much!
So far, the only shows I’m planning on personally continuing are Izetta and possibly Magical Girl Raising Project. As usual, you can check out the full list of shows over at the preview guide, or my own scores with individual review links below!
Izetta: The Last Witch – 4.5/5
Touken Ranbu – Hanamaru – 4/5
Magical Girl Raising Project – 3.5/5
Bloodivores – 3/5
DREAM FESTIVAL! – 3/5
Magic-Kyun! Renaissance – 2.5/5
Tiger Mask W – 2/5
