KonoSuba Season 2: First Impressions

I loved season 1 of KonoSuba when it came out last year. The plot never took itself seriously, the characters were funny and it was just fun to watch. It was a great parody on the Virtual Game genre made famous by Sword Art Online, amongst others. Well, season 2 is here and Kazuma and his merry band of companions are back for a new adventure, this time with Kazuma being deemed a criminal.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans – First Impressions

Gundam 1

Ask any anime fan to name a Mecha anime and chances are the Gundam series will be one of those answers. For a very long time, Gundam has been synonymous with the Mecha genre. The series has expanded its popularity through video games and body kits. In all honesty, this is actually the first Gundam title that I am watching; I’ve heard about the others but never watched them. From what I’ve watched so far, I am getting a sense that this one will be more darker in tone compared to the others, which is a good thing in my opinion.

A Return to That Galaxy Far, Far Away…

This past weekend I was one of the many participants in the Star Wars Battlefront BETA (Apparently 9 million people took part in the BETA, according to EA). Star Wars has always been something special and important in my life so, naturally, I got very excited to try out the game before it released. After blasting Imperial scum and not finding the droids we were looking for, here are my initial impressions of Star Wars Battlefront.

Concrete Revolutio – First Impressions

Concrete 1

Going in to this anime I really expected a lot from it: the plot sounded interesting, it’s produced by Bones (one of my favourite studios since Eureka Seven) and the art style was quite fascinating and different. Sadly, Concrete Revolutio failed to deliver in its first episode. The plot was actually quite confusing and the events being played out didn’t make much sense.

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk – First Impressions

Asterisk 1

Futuristic Academy Fighters (yes, I made that up now) seem to be quite a popular choice of genre these days, especially in shounen anime. This one is no different: new/transfer student entering an academy where everyone fights each other to determine who’s the strongest of them all. Main character shows potential to be very strong but we have yet to see his full power. While Gakusen Toshi Asterisk adds nothing new to the genre, it’s quite entertaining so far.
