You’re probably wondering why I didn’t do a preview or anything. Well I had this month long job where I had to be out of the house 15+ hours a day. Try doing that for a month straight with no breaks, it’s a backbreaker. So I didn’t want to write anything at all. Hell, this blog was bare for a while right? Still didn’t finish posting stuff from last season. At least I can do a midway post.
Let’s start with my favorites from this season, Erased, Phantom World and Dimension W.
Erased (Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi) – It has time travel so of course I jumped in. The main character, Satoru, has the power to jump through time, one that he doesn’t realize he has until he jumps back several years. So Satoru tries to fix the things in the past that took some very important people from him.
Dimension W – This one will become the first broadcast dub to air on US TV since it’s going to be on Toonami as soon as Akame Ga Kill ends this week. In 2036, a 4th dimension is discovered and with it comes renewable energy. The energy is harvested into these reactors known as coils. Fast Forward to 2071 and a huge conglomerate New Tesla Energy corners the market which leads to illegal coils being made. This is here Kyoma comes in, he’s a “collector”. Collectors are out to collect illegal coils but he’s a throwback, he’s a progress hating loner who wants nothing to do with coils. One day he comes across Mira who an android powered by coils and the 2 end up becoming partners much to Kyoma’s dismay. I hope they don’t turn Mira into pervert bait. This one has a Cowboy Bebop feel to it if you ask me. Needs more than 12 episodes. I think I just wrote my preview/review for this already, just need to add some sauce and let it simmer.
Phantom World (Musaigen no Phantom World) – It’s from Kyoto so of course the quality is there. In a world where phantoms are now walking around freely, there are students tasked with getting rid of them or putting them at peace. The main character Haruhiko actually has a genie looking phantom who is always with him. Along with Mai (Seems to be this season’s hot girl), Reina, Koito, and Kurumi, Haruhiko and the girls find ways to make sure the phantoms are at peace. Wish I was a teenager in Japan if they fight phantoms, fly, ride in mechs and all that other stuff. Continue reading
