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!

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.

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.

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.

Hello, and welcome to the newest edition of that article series where I tell you what you’re missing and should be watching for currently airing anime. This week is Kado: The Right Answer, or Seikaisuru Kado, a show about a negotiator working with a trans-dimensional being bearing gifts of incomprehensible power for a selfish race like humanity.

Why You Should Be Watching: Quan Zhi Gao Shou

Hello, and welcome to another rendition of Why You Should Be Watching, where I tell you what anime you shouldn’t miss this season, since I watch too many anime and want to share them all with you. Today I’ll be talking about something a little different from usual with Quan Zhi Gao Shou, or The King’s Avatar, a show that actually isn’t an anime, but a genuine Chinese cartoon inspired by the anime artstyle!

Sound interesting? Of course it does, so go check down below the break to read more!

Why You Should Be Watching: Sakura Quest

From the creators of Shirobako comes another in what hopefully will be a long line of cute adult women doing cute adult things, Sakura Quest, this time with a small town rejuvenation spin on the genre instead of the previous “how to make anime” series.

Trust me, it’s more interesting than it sounds at first glance, and I’ll tell you why below the break!

Why You Should Be Watching: Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

  

There comes a time in every person’s life when the story you’re creating reaches its inevitable conclusion, when the characters you’ve come to know and love and watch grow through their adventures finally reach the peak and retire from all this world-saving business to watch over the next generation.

In Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, we get a glimpse into what that next generation is and how it will tell its own, new story; and so the cycle begins anew.

You can check out my thoughts on this series below the break!
