Summer is the Season of Comedy: First Impressions of Chio’s School Road & Dropkick on my Devil!

This summer truly is a season of comedy. We’ve got Cells at Work!, Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro, Jashin-chan Dropkick, AND Grand Blue is on deck to air later this week.

Comedy series are great to watch weekly, though, because they’re often written a way that allows each episode to stand alone each week. This is to say, you don’t have to spend as much time or effort trying to keep up with a story that doesn’t provide weekly closure.

This season, I’m striving to keep up with the first three comedies mentioned, as well as Attack on Titan S3, Steins;Gate 0, Overlord III, and Hanebado!

Seven is a lofty goal, but I believe in myself.

At any rate, here are some initial thoughts on Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro, and Jashin-chan Dropkick.

First Impressions of Cells at Work: The New Standard for Teaching Intro-Level Biology

If you listen to the podcast, you know that I was a biology minor in college. Well, I guess you also know that now if you’re reading this post, but that’s beside the point. The point here is that I’m a bit of a science geek; naturally, I was drawn to Hatarakou Saibou as soon as I saw it listed on MAL as a summer 2018 anime. There was never any question as to whether or not I would watch this series this season. Rather, it was question of whether or not it would actually hold up for a somewhat sciency dork such as myself.

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii (Love is Hard for Otaku)

Wotakoi

I’d like to take a quick moment here to look at what is easily the best series I’ve seen involving A-1 Pictures this season. No, not Darling in the FranXX, and definitely not Record of Grancrest War. I’m talking about slice-of-life romcom Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii.

Dagashi Kashi 1&2 (Winter 2016, 2018)

Dagashi Kashi­ blipped onto my radar this past winter after I happened upon a promotional image for the second season. I thought the character designs looked pretty interesting, so I decided to give the series a try. In doing so, I ended up learning more about Japanese snack culture than I ever thought possible.

A Place Further Than the Universe

It’s always refreshing to see an original anime be talked about as possibly one of the best to come out of any given season. This is even truer for Sora yori mo Tooi Basho. It’s not an edge-of-your-seat adventure series rife with peril or action, nor is it even all that climactic in general. It is, however, objectively the best show I’ve seen so far from the Winter 2018 season, and one of the better ones I’ve seen in the last year.
