Why You Should Be Watching: Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul

Welcome to another edition of Why You Should Be Watching, this week with a holdover from last season, Shingeki no Bahamut: Virgin Soul. A sequel to Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis from 2014, this show follows the adventures of Nina, a dragonfolk woman, as she makes a life in a city under the command of a king bent on subjugating demons and gods beneath humanity’s iron heel.

If that sounds interesting to you, check out my thoughts on the show below the break!

Why You Should Maybe Be Watching: Gamers!

Bonjour, and welcome to another stirring edition of anime I think You Should Maybe Be Watching, an example of my endless ambivalence to the more lackluster shows of the season that still have gems of goodness hidden within. Tonight my guest is Gamers!, a series about a group of people who, surprise surprise, are gamers, each with their own reasons to play the medium we all know and love, though there is a romantic comedy element to the show, as well.

If that sounds like a fantastic time to you, or you’re one of the two people (hi mom!) who just love reading everything I write, take a look below the break!

Why You Should Be Watching: Isekai Shokudou

There comes a time in every Why You Should Be Watching when I come to the conclusion on whether or not the article I’m going to be writing will be nearly long enough to be worth posting. In other words, today’s editorial was supposed to be Tsurezure Children, but since it is a short-form show, there really isn’t that much to say about it.

However, I will be doing a video on it later this week, along with Aho Girl, so I did want to mention You Should Be Watching those two shows and you’ll find out more about that on my channel this Wednesday when the video releases.

So without further ado, today’s Why You Should be Watching is going to be Isekai Shokudou (Restaurant to Another World), a show about a restaurant in our world appearing in a fantasy world every seven days!

Why You Should Be Watching: Made in Abyss

It’s time for another week of Why You Should be Watching, where I recommend, or try to steer you away from, currently airing anime. This week I’ve got a really good one for you: Made in Abyss. If you’ve ever wanted to see what putting small children in astoundingly dangerous situations with the possibility of madness being worse than death is like, this might tickle your fancy!

Why You Should Be Watching: Fate/Apocrypha

Fate, Fate, Fate. Everyone knows the series if they’ve been anywhere near the anime fandom for any amount of time, and this latest in the franchise is more, more, more of everything you loved and hated from the first series.

Fate/Apocrypha takes place in an alternate reality where Fate/Stay Night never happened, and instead of the Free For All of 7 Servants and their Masters of Fate/Stay Night, there’s a 7v7 Holy Grail Team Deathmatch.

Check out my thoughts on the anime below on Why You Should Be Watching it!

Hello, and welcome to another installment of the popular Why You Should Be Watching series, fresh off a week break between seasons to bring you more reasons why you should be filling your limited hours on this earth with good, old fashioned anime.

Check it all out below the break!

Why You Shouldn’t Be Watching: Sword Oratoria

Today, I bring you another Why You Shouldn’t Be Watching with a heavy heart, because I very much wanted to like Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria. It had all the makings of a great companion series to the original, but sadly lost its footing in the wake of strange creative choices that differ from the manga in big ways.

You can find out why what those are and why the anime adaptation is so bad after the break.

Caught in the Croswynd: Youjo Senki and the Dichotomy of Cute Killing

Youjo Senki is an anime that, at first glance, seems incredibly at odds with itself when you consider the contradiction between its setting and main character. But while the show’s plot is ridiculous on the surface, this series still manages to work surprisingly well when translated to the medium of anime. Having a cute, little girl tasked with the killing of soldiers in a pseudo-World War I Europe is a dichotomy that is strangely fascinating to watch, and more than a little addicting once you give it a try.

Take a look below the break to see the rest of my write up on this wonderfully sadistic show.

Why You Should Maybe Be Watching: Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records

Hot off the heels of last week’s Why You Shouldn’t Be Watching: Eromanga-sensei, I’m bringing you yet another spinoff of my Why You Should Be Watching series, this time with Why You Should Maybe Be Watching: Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records.

This anime is about a magical instructor with a dark past teaching kids who find him nothing more than a lazy bastard… but there’s always surprises in anime.

Maybe find out what those are below the break!

Why You Shouldn’t Be Watching: Eromanga-sensei

On this cursed day, I come to you not with an anime I would recommend, but one I, with great sincerity and aplomb, suggest you do not watch under any circumstances. Eromanga-sensei is here, and incest is most certainly not wincest.

You can find out why below the break.
