Our second week of previews, this time featuring more alcohol! Slurry Joseph aside, IRL news features more Fire Emblem Heroes, Overwatch, and a bit about a broken dryer. Then in industry news we learn that Dragon Ball Super is coming to an end, and that now is a good time to be in Tokyo if you want to get into the anime industry. At last the previews come around. Andrew brings us a story of young girl falling for a much older guy and hot boys doing attractive boy things, Joseph meanwhile has a female honey badger killing things and the second season of an anime about Japanese snacks.

  1. Heyo!
    Thanks for responding to my comment on the show. Made me think of one more thing about the show that I think are worth mentioning. The background art is absolutely gorgeous and really makes Academy City feel alive and vivid. Another reason I had a hard time dropping the show. A story set in a setting this well designed couldn’t be bad, right?
    Does Railgun keep that up by any chance?

    As for your previews:
    I’m following Killing Bites myself and so far it’s a dumb action show about busty girls fighting in their knickers. While this normally isn’t my style, I still find it entertaining because it doesn’t try to pretend its anything else. It’s loud and proud about being stupid and sometimes that’s enough.
    Also, honey badger girl has the same VA as Aqua from Konosuba. I still can’t wrap my head around that.

    Finally, isn’t Love is Like After the Rain more of a Josei (targeted towards adult women) more than a seinen (targeted towards adult men)? Might’ve just been a slip on your part.


  2. Hello good sir!

    No problem, I enjoy covering community interaction on the show, though I feel the need to type a response message earlier because of the week delay between recording and posting. I’ll form a more concise answer but in short yes, I think especially with season two, the personality of Academy City as a setting shines through in Railgun.

    Fair enough, I guess it’s sort of like how people watched Keijo in that regard.

    Yeah, now that you mention it, that was an error on my part. I think the reason I made that fuck up is because it’s listed on MAL as Seinen. Should have known better since I give MAL shit for it’s tags all the time. So yeah, my bad.

    Thanks for your comment
