I’m SO excited for this. And the best is that we will also get a second season (Sword Oratoria is a spin-off). I had so much fun with the first season, and was even wondering about reading the light novels. But I’ll stick to the animated version I guess.
I had totally forgotten that The Seven Deadly Sins: Revival of The Commandments (Nanatsu no Taizai: Imashime no Fukkatsu) was premiering on Netflix today! It was a very welcome surprise, considering just yesterday I said I wasn’t watching any anime at the moment.
When the second season (not considering the 4 episodes “thing” as a season) was airing on TV, I was too busy to watch it and decided to wait until it was available on Netflix. Now, I have 24 episodes to watch! OK, one down, 23 to go.
I didn’t see any reviews and comments on it, and I just hope it’s as good as the first season.
Suzuka Nagami is a beautiful third-year middle school student who has excellent grades and is the student council president. She wrote a novel about a little sister who dotes on her older brother, and the the novel wins a light novel award. After they discuss the matter, Yuu is the one who debuts as a proxy light novel author instead of Suzuka, under the pen name Chikai Towano.
Anilist may not be so popular and well known as MyAnimeList (MAL), which every anime lover already knows about. MAL is THE site when it comes to find information about anime, manga and light novels. But since it went down for some days and returned lacking a lot of features, many users changed to AniList, Kitsu or some other option.
This is a light novel adaptation that is going to air during the Fall 2018 anime season: Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai. It still doesn’t have an English title and it being made by CloverWorks studios.
Synopsis: There’s a rumor about a mysterious phenomenon call “puberty syndrome.” For example, Sakuta Azusagawa is a high school student who suddenly sees a bunny girl appear in front of him. The girl is actually a girl named Mai Sakurajima, who is Sakuta’s upperclassman who is also a famous actress who has gone on hiatus from the entertainment industry. For some reason, the people around Mai cannot see her bunny-girl figure. Sakuta sets out to solve this mystery, and has he spends time with Mai, he learns her secret feelings. Other heroines who have “puberty syndrome” start to appear in front of Sakuta.

The Sprint 2018 anime season had some interesting titles, but with my college program starting, I couldn’t watch as many as I would like. In the end, I settled for one new title, and two continuations.
Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online (MyAnimeList)
I didn’t watch the original SAO, but when this was announced it got my attention. I had fun watching it, and I recommend it if you have spare time. Now that I finished it, I think it’s entertaining and interesting, but nothing special.
Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara – Toutsuki Ressha-hen (MAL)
Although at the beginning I though this story arc was a little too over the top, I still enjoyed watching it a lot. In the end, it was kind of more-of-the-same, but we learned a bit more about the characters backgrounds, and we saw some development too. And of course, the battles are still fun to watch. It’s only a shame that the season ended without finishing the story arc.
This is one of my favorite recent anime, and I doubt there’s any anime fan that doesn’t know about it. I’ve seen many different opinions on this season, but I really had fun watching it and on my opinion it was a good season overall. Maybe not as great as the previous ones, but the story and the character development that we had along the season, and the last few episodes were SO GOOD that compensated it’s faults, at least for me.
Do you agree/disagree with my opinions or have any recommendation from this season? Leave a comment, I’ll appreciate!
Last week I got addicted to Kim’s Convenience, a show about a Korean family that runs a convenience store in Toronto.
I’ve watched the first episode a few months ago during my flight to Toronto, and although I’ve liked it at that point, it didn’t catch me. But this week I watched a few more episodes with my wife, and I’m totally hooked. Sadly, we already watched everything and have to wait for season 3 😕
I also started watching Yuru Camp, an anime about… Camping. I’ve watched the first 3 episodes and so far I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s so cozy and heartwarming! As for cartoons, I’m enjoying the new Ducktales, and did catch up with Steven Universe (OMFG WHAT WAS THAT EPISODE!!!)
Yesterday I also started watching the last season of The Americans, one of the best TV shows I’ve watched these last few years. If you didn’t watch it yet, please do it! After I finish i, I plan on watching Glow’s 2nd season, quick premiered on Netflix last Friday. And with my wife, I’m starting Ozark. I’ve been curious about it since the first trailer, but never watched it.
And you, what are you watching right now? Leave a comment!
I’m going to Anime North tomorrow, and I’m very excited to go, as this is going to be my first anime convention outside of Brazil. If anyone else is going on Sunday, you can contact me on Twitter and we can meet there. My username there is @geek_astronaut.
