Spring 2017 – First Impressions, Part One

The season’s in full swing now, so it’s time once again to take stock of where we’re at so far. With six shows released as of today, things are playing out pretty much by the script – My Hero Academia has the same issues the first season did, Alice & Zoroku is the most promising new property, and nothing else is really worth mentioning. Titan is still Titan, but I’m not really at a point where I feel obligated to watch the crossover hits anymore, so I’ll probably be skipping that one.

As usual, you can see a list of my scores so far below, and click on any of the titles to link to their full review pages, or just go to the overall review page here. Have at it!

Alice & Zoroku – 3.5/5

My Hero Academia 2 – 3.5/5

Attack on Titan 2 – 3.5/5

Granblue Fantasy: The Animation – 2.5/5

The Laughing Salesman – 2.5/5

Frame Arms Girls – 1.5/5

One thought on “Spring 2017 – First Impressions, Part One

  1. For me the biggest appeal of Alice and Zoroku is the gruff old guy. However I kind of feel like the rest of the show sort of clashes with him. Even something as simple as the little girl’s character design.

    I’ve read that the producer for Granblue Fantasy wanted to use Gran and Djeeta (the game’s male and female player avatar characters) as co-leads but the source material’s publisher refused because they wanted to maintain the “boy meets girl” aspect of Gran meeting that mcguffin girl who looks like an idolmaster character. I wonder if such a co-lead dynamic might have made the series a bit more interesting -or if it might have ended up being annoying.
