What Anime is Killswitch Currently Checking Out? April 7th edition

Published by:

I decided to give people a peek at the shows I’m watching on a weekly basis instead of the ones that I can shotgun marathon because they’re already finished shows. 3 of these shows will be on the list for a while since they’re current shows but the other spots will be open.

First up is Assassination Classroom. I went to check what’s selling in Japan so I can compare and contrast with some ideas I had and then I found this one. Print media is slipping but Assassination Classroom is still holding strong.

The show is about an alien who has come to destroy the planet, like he did to the moon. He is giving the people of Earth a chance to survive but it all depends on kids who are the lowest class in school. They’re not delinquents, except for one but they don’t test well. They’re Earth’s last hope and no one outside of this classroom knows it. Continue reading

Mysterious Girlfriend X (Nazo no Kanojo Ekkusu)

Published by:

Mysterious Girlfriend X… I’m honestly at a loss here. It’s not the worst that I’ve seen but wow, this one really was hard to get through.

I don’t like to kill plots for people or give spoilers, it’s a review not a book report on the show, but in this case it’s really the basis for the whole show. The show revolves around one central theme. Drool, tasting drool, giving drool, desiring drool. It’s really just…bleh.

Tsubaki, the main protagonist, seems like an ordinary kid until a new mystery girl transfers into his school. She is just a strange character from the very beginning but has everyone’s attention, especially Tsubaki. When class ended one day, Tsubaki found himself with her in the classroom. She was face down on her desk, drooling. This is where we find that he has an obsession with drool, he wakes her up and when she isn’t looking, he tastes her drool on the desk. Continue reading

The Comic Artist and Assistants (Mangaka-san to Ashisutanto-san to)

Published by:

The Comic Artist and His Assistants is another series of short episodes. There are 12 episodes but each one runs about 10 minutes or so not counting the opening and ending credits. The series is based around a perverted, otaku, manga author named Yuki who seems to want to fall in love with everyone close to him, especially his assistant Ashisu. Plus his desire to draw panties is another prevailing storyline here but he takes it a step further than just that. Ashisu, is put into awkward situations and is forced to cope with Yuki’s behavior.

I picked this one up thinking that it might be different and show the actual life of a mangaka. It does show it somewhat but exaggerated and of course hastened because the show is not very long. If they decided to lengthen it, they have all the parts needed for something decent. But it looks like a production committee one-shot. Continue reading

Scrambling…

Published by:

Feels like forever ago when I thought this thing would be done. Astra Etherium: Adventures of a Space Bounty Hunter in Space is moving into the final stages (I thought it was there before but some issues came up.) The game really was supposed to be much simpler but then we added speech, had to change art, went through several music people…it just kept going on and on and on. It will feel like a weight lifted off my shoulders when this thing is finally out there. Hopefully someone out there likes it. Hopefully more than one.
