This is a compilation of my MAL episode discussion posts for the first episodes of the summer season. Listed in order of highest to lowest first impression score.

Still have to watch: Hamatora s2, Tokyo ESP, Nobunaga, Rokujouma, Sengoku, Space Dandy, Francesca, Sabagebu


Barakamon - It was fantastic. I expected this show to be good since it was announced and it went even beyond my expectations. Heartwarming and deep with strong Gin no Saji/Wolf Children/Usagi Drop vibes, which is great. This is my favourite non-sequel of the season so far. 5/5

Zankyou no Terror - Very strong first episode. OST is fantastic, atmosphere is too. Seems like this will be my Sidonia of the summer season - a serious show with mind boggling events and awesome directing. HERE WE GO! 4.5/5

Free! - Perfect way to start off this season. Wednesdays this summer will be a splash. Fun jokes, nice set up. The OP/ED are fantastic as usual. I like the OP a bit more because Tatsun sounds gorgeous. 4.5/5 Enjoyment: 5/5 

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun - Great. Went in with literally no expectations and got a blast out of this episode. It said shounen but this would appeal to any shoujo fangirl like myself. Great cast. Loving Nakamura Yuuichi, the newbie seiyuu that voices Sakura, and also Miyano Mamoru!!! I actually like the female lead, because she's adorable and Nozaki is cute as well. 4/5

Ao Haru Ride - God bless the art. It's perfect. The watercolours are great. I'm just really afraid my score will be biased (lower) because I can't really get the sensation of watching it blind because I already know what's going to happen and most likely, the anime won't go further than how much I've read. Anyway, Yuki Kaji fits Kou pretty well. I'm still dying to know who's gonna voice Touma! Solid adaption so far. Cool stuff. Lovely. 4/5

Tokyo Ghoul This is made by Studio Pierrot?! WTF I thought it was IG or Madhouse or something. Stunning animation and visuals!! The music is really solid as well. Love the ED (technically OP) theme. Anyway, it's a very solid first episode. I can see this turning out to be super good. Love the premise too. 3.75/5 (because it's not quite a 4!) #PupaDoneRight

Aldnoah Zero - Pretty good so far. The OST is great, the visuals too. It was a bit boring for the first half but when they introduced the people who were gonna attack the princess, it made it a lot better. 3.5/5

Shounen Hollywood - It wasn't too bad, but I felt it was too realistic for a fun idol show. This kind of episode should be placed later on in the series for more of an impact and it should have started off like Free! which was more light hearted and fun in general. Either way, I'm interested to see how this goes. I love the five seiyuu individually but they all sound really similar, in timbre and range. They're all the high pitched singers, except Ono Kensho who balances it out. I liked Utapri's cast more because it was so diverse. The animation and OST were pretty great, but the character design was too realistic for anime. 3.5/5

Akame ga Kill - I think this is more like Akuma no Riddle plus Shingeki at the moment, with a sprinkle of Mirai Nikki. Either way, it was pretty cool even with the pandering elements mixed in. As someone who went in blind without knowing what this was about, it was quite fun and unexpected. This is gonna be the NGNL of this season, most likely unless Zankyou no Terror manages to throw in pandering and fanservice. 3.5/5

DRAMAtical Murder - Not bad so far. I like the plot and technology. A bit confusing for a non-game player like me, but I'll get used to it. 3/5

SAO II - I really like the whole murder mystery thing going on, but the explanations were definitely too lengthy. Anyway, looking forward to more. It definitely is better than that shit first arc in season one already. 3/5

Glasslip - I expected a bit too much out of this show. It's kind of lackluster and boring throughout, even more than Tari Tari which at least had some conflict going on and the music. The art is nice, but character designs aren't the best. Well, it's still the first episode so I'm not giving up at all. Nagiasu started out like this too so this might be a great show over the next few weeks. 3/5

Majimoji RurumoIt was okay. Kind of fun, but the comedy doesn't really do much to me unlike Yowapeda. However, the ecchi isn't as bad as I expected so that's good. 3/5

Rail Wars - Cool show. It's interesting even with the unnecessary fanservice. I like the setting and premise although everything else is weak. 2.5/5

Sailor Moon - I don't know how Usagi's seiyuu sounded back in the past, but now it just doesn't work and you can hear how old the voice actress really is. Anyway, it wasn't as great as I thought it'd be as a non-original-watcher, but decent and I'm looking forward to more. I expected it to be like Please Save My Earth because people compared the two. I like the art for the boys. They're quite handsome. But for the girls, I find the eyes too big and hair too big as well. Oh right, that CGI is gross. 2.5/5

Argevollen - I remember when Sidonia made me into mecha again....And this series just tramples over that thought. I'm very disinterested and almost fell asleep throughout the first episode. However, I'd still like to give it a chance. 2.5/5

Kuroshitsuji s3 Average filler episode. Nothing else. Hoping for better next episode. 2/5

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!? - Was average at best. Nothing special other than another Nanana/supernatural harem. Will continue watching for a few more weeks. 1.5/5

  • Listening to: zankyou no terror ost ayyy
