Spring Anime 2018: First Impressions Part 2



I never originally intended to give this anime a shot for the simple reason that I think boxing is a barbaric sport. After watching TheAnimeMan’s video on this anime I decided I would give it a try at least as see what my initial opinion of it was instead of immediately writing it off. Although I still hold the opinion that boxing is barbaric I’m intrigued enough to see how this show pans out. I’m honestly shocked by the art style of this series because it looks old on purpose. I’m fascinated with the fact that it’s 2018 and they’ve somehow managed to make this show look like an old, nostalgic Bebop style anime with all this new technology. I do enjoy the grimy, dirty, graffiti ridden aesthetic of the overall scenery of this show as I find all the details aesthetically as pleasing.

Cute High Earth Defence Club Love Happy Kiss


I’m already loving this anime after just one episode, then again this is my guilty pleasure anime. I found it interesting that the new series have kept the same school setting and there were jokes about the “defense club (LOL)” sign. I don’t expect this to the anime of the season but I’m happy about watching it nonetheless.

Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi


This one gave me real Kamisama Kiss vibes. Whilst the concept of being practically sold off to an ogre for marriage as payment (which thankfully Aoi refuses) for a massive debt is a questionable concept that does anger me so as a female it’s an anime that I will stick with and see where it goes. The art style looks great and I do enjoy anime themed around yokai. Odanna seems like he is going to be a bit of a pain but I’ll see how things develop.

Tokyo Goul:Re


Considering I have been waiting actual years to see this and I didn’t think Crunchyroll were going to add it for the U.K. I can say I’m rather excited about Tokyo Ghoul:Re. I know many people are apprehensive about this one after what happened with season two. I think i’m honestly just so curious to see this series at this point that I’m not really bothered about what happened previously. I don’t super high expectations for this one but I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes.

Thanks for reading and I hope you’re having a great day!

  1. I loved everything about Happy Kiss. It still had the same humour and thankfully the guys seem to have their own personalities. The enemy of the week had me in stitches too, even though I felt bad when he ran away crying at the end.

    I’ve heard great things about MegaloBox, but I really hate boxing (and MMA) so I don’t know if I’d be able to enjoy it. We’ll see, maybe when the show is over I’ll check out the reviews and then decide from there.

    1. Same! I’m really excited about Happy Kiss! The enemy was hilarious and yeah same haha.

      Yeah me too, I honestly cannot stand the sport but I thought since everyone seems to be loving it I would at least give it a chance and see what happens. Like you I don’t know if I’ll get much enjoyment out of it!

  2. Happy Kiss was surprisingly good. I liked the first season of Cute High etc but the second season was a bit bland. Hoping this new group can remain entertaining but the first episode was promising.

  3. I think the deliberately rough aesthetic of Megalo Box is awesome. It’s cool that they’re recapturing that 90’s-esque feel. Helps that it’s an anniversary project, I guess. Sports series can be so…for lack of a better expression, hit or miss. I do have cautiously high hopes for this one though. Also pseudo-interested in Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii.
