Yu-chan a FUCKING BADASS, AsoAso AOTS saves anime for REAL

Oh Shit what a weekend, and it all ended on the highest of notes on Sunday night when the Hanebado! train rolled through. In my case, this means Monday afternoons are amazing, when I finally make a hole in my schedule big enough to fit all this Kino. AND JUST HOW AMAZING WAS ASO-ASO THO??? But first, let us take a moment to laugh at Franxx.

I did make it all the way to the end (unlike that VEG cryshit that got DROPPED at 7), and it definitely had its moments, but those last two episodes??? HOLY FUCK Nishigori, what the hell man????

Why would you kill Zero Tsu and kill the merch sales only to reincarnate her and kill all that cred you would have gotten if you’d just clean-killed her? Oh shit, this guy literally pissed off EVERYBODY. Except Abe-sama, of course.

I think the Yurifags were happy that they got thrown a bone, but poor Ikuno still got the Dino AIDS for being gay and her replacement Strawberry HAS NO MAIN FISTING ARM. Toppest of Keks.

Enough of the dross. It’s KINO TIME. Have you seen my BADASS WIFE Yu-chan?

This episode was mostly about Yu-chan, so it’s obvious that Liden have their shit together. Finally a studio that realises that what we really want to see is JK’s eating meat after class.

There was also some badminton played, and a new villain introduced. It was a solid 11/10 effort all around, with all the conflict resolved in twenty minutes and plenty of happy vibes.

If I have one small criticism to make, it is that we didn’t get see enough of Brat-chan going on one of her amazingly funny autistic runs.

Next up, Asobi Asobase. SO MUCH GOODNESS.

I had already dropped one seasonal by Lerche on its first episode last week, and I barely got through the OP for this one, before I realised JUST HOW FUCKING GOOD THIS WAS. AsoAso is PURE pleb filter. It may be Nichijou-tier good.

This is the illustration that I was expecting from the VEG hype machine that Kyoani never delivered. Drawing with SOUL. Fuck it, have another clip.

Reaction faces for DAYS. A show LITERALLY good enough to watch with the sound off. But the story telling is REALLY GOOD too.

Asobi Asobase was so good that it leapfrogged all the Moe shit and went straight to the top of Summer Cour. It was so good that it almost made me forget that American money was quietly ruining anime. Not Fooly Cooly.

Full disclosure: [ J.K. Bully]’s IRL name is [MEAT DATO]. I’m an [leapfrog specialist] who’s keen on [ruining anime] and [hype].
