It’s that time again as I watched…..well, more anime than I should and yet I even said on Twitter that I was doing too much or at least not as much as most people but still.
Yeah, even in the new decade, I’m doing a lot of these.
And you know what? I’m probably going to end it on here as I’ll catch Isekai Quartet 2 on simuldub on Funimation like last year and I have 4 last picks to go as always, so let’s go!
OH, and the first three are on Crunchyroll.
SCIENCE FELL IN LOVE, SO I TRIED TO PROVE IT // Zero-G
Plot Summary: What happens when a science-inclined girl and boy who are deeply passionate about research fall in love? An intelligent woman named Himuro Ayame who is a science graduate student at Saitama University happens to ask fellow science grad student Yukimura Shinya out. Of course, there’s no logical reason for this love! But as a science and engineering major, not being able to logically prove love would mean that those feelings aren’t real, and they’d fail as a science student. With that in mind, the two drag everyone else in the lab into trying various experiments to prove love actually exists.
First Thoughts: So remember Kaguya-Sama last year and how it was about love but in the most unconventional way and this one….yeah, it’s in that department as well only dumber. Mainly because it’s science graduate students trying to find some logical scientific reason why Himuro is asking out Yukimura. It’s also one of those cases of the guy being absolutely oblivious to the subject of love and also drag the other people in the lab in this and one, particularly Kanade, wondering the hell is wrong with this dude. Having watched the 3 episodes it premiered with, the show is fairly watchable. It has some good moments of some genuinely cute moments and some humorous bits, too. It’s not a pale imitation of Kaguya but more of the older and more confused sister of it.

A DESTRUCTIVE GOD SITS NEXT TO ME // EMT Squared
Plot Summary: High school student Koyuki Seri has a disposition for whipping out witty retorts… but hates people who wait for those retorts! Much to his dismay, he had caught the eye of Hanatori Kabuto, who suffers from a terrible case of delusions of grandeur and everything about him could warrant a retort. Seri swears that he will never utter a retort about Kabuto, but he just can’t hold back. Not to mention, there seem to be even more strange people gathering around him…
First Thoughts: I don’t think I ever saw or notice anything Chunnibyou and I probably still won’t get it but I know I’m probably going to still not get it because it’s basically about some delusional dude that loves to cause a ruckus and apparently he’s on this other guy Koyuki and he’s bad juju around him. I don’t blame Koyuki for wanting to get far away from him. I don’t know. This show is just…..really not doing it for me and you know what? I’m not getting it the time of day and I’m…..yeah, it’s dropped.
IN/SPECTRE // Brain’s Base
Plot Summary: Both touched by spirits called yokai, Kotoko and Kuro have gained unique superhuman powers. But to gain her powers Kotoko has given up an eye and a leg, and Kuro’s personal life is in shambles. So when Kotoko suggests they team up to deal with renegades from the spirit world, Kuro doesn’t have many other choices, but Kotoko might just have a few ulterior motives…
First Thoughts: Well, damn, an eye and a leg to get some powers, eh? And this guy has been through hell with breaking up with his girl although that whole thing didn’t really give it much for me to be concerned considering the turn around on this guy and how much better the show became when his true power was shown. But yeah, this show is…. OK. Just plain OK. Makes an interesting yokai tale this season but not one to be top.
LOW-MEDIUM PRIORITY WATCH
TOILET-BOUND HANAKO-KUN // Lerche // FUNIMATION
Plot Synopsis: Kamome Academy is rumored to have many mysteries, the strangest of which involves the mischievous ghost of Hanako-kun. When occult-loving high schooler Nene Yashiro accidentally becomes bonded to him, she uncovers a hidden world of supernatural beings. Now the two of them are conspiring to keep the peace between student and supernatural—that is, if they can only stay out of trouble themselves.
First Thoughts: Well, it’s not shit, so that’s good news and yet, it’s just…..a’ight, I guess. The whole mystical fairy-tale visuals and style are amusing and all but this girl Nene is now bounded by this toilet ghost and he’s trying to make her stick around as she wants to find love and get free from this but hi-jinks ensue and it’s fine. It’s serviceable and cute, especially with it involving toilets. It’s not the best of the season or even one of the best. Yuasa got that title locked for the rest of the season.
And that is it for Time of the Season Winter 2020!!! Thank goodness! I need to work on some projects of mine, especially one thing that I’m excited to write about.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and no, really, I’m very excited of what I got planned in the future.
