Quick look at Summer 2020

There’s nothing quite like judging a show by its premise and a short, two-minute PV.

Shows I’ll pass on

Lapis Re:LiGHTs
Dunno what this is. Probably something vapid like idols. I know a guy at work whose Slack avatar is some girl from The Idolmaster. Yeah, I don’t take him very seriously.

Muhyo to Rouji no Mahouritsu Soudan Jimusho 2
It’s the sequel to something that I’ve never heard of. I already have enough junk on my plate to catch up on.

Shows I’ll take a look at

I’m more amused by the fact that the studio behind the show is named NUT. Anyways, the PV looks okay, but it’s also 90% action. I’m not gonna get my hopes up for a deep plot. Also, I hope the girl doesn’t end up falling in love with the old guy. I pretty much dropped Arte for that reason and that reason alone.

Dokyuu Hentai HxEros
I guess if you think you’re not quite horny enough to jerk it, this show might get you there. It feels like I’ve seen this show before, though. Wasn’t there an anime where the main character had to grope his harem in order to do battle? Hell, there were probably tons of shows like that.

Enen no Shouboutai: Ni no Shou
I still need to marathon the first season, which I’ll probably do this weekend. Or next weekend. I dunno, it’s whenever I feel like it. The PV makes this look like just another mindless shounen, though.

The PV gives off retro vibes, but nothing sucks the joy outta me more than heroes fighting giant insects. C’mon, gimme something fearsome to look at. For example, Blood-C sounds cool on paper, but when you actually sit down and see the goofy-looking monsters that the heroine goes up against, it’s just so lame.

Ikebukuro West Gate Park
I tried to look for a PV on Youtube, but I ended finding the live action adaptation instead. I know nothing about this show. It probably won’t interest me much.

Kanojo, Okarishimasu
Lemme guess, the main girl starts out hating the main character, but she slowly develops feelings for him over the course of the story. But since this is just going to be a one-cour adaptation, nothing substantial will develop between them, so the romantically-inclined among us will be left with nothing but blue balls.

Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha
Ah yes, another overpowered demon lord with girls fawning all over his dick.

Monster Musume no Oisha-san
Despite my years and years of watching degenerate anime, I’m still not turned on by furries. Naturally, monster girls don’t really have a chance. This will probably bore me, but I’ll give it an episode or two.

No Guns Life 2
I felt like the first season ended randomly. Even if it was a split cour, I feel like you should try to end on a high note in order to leave the viewers wanting. No Guns Life isn’t bad, but it also doesn’t make me want to watch it. I’d be perfectly okay in a world in which it never continues.

Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan
So a guy already has a girlfriend, but he still can’t maintain healthy boundaries with other girls. Boy, that sounds like a fun watch.

Re:Zero Season 2
I never finished the first season, so I’ll try to do that first. But to be honest, I remember Subaru being super annoying, so I doubt I’ll stick around for long. I don’t care how high its MAL score is, because those people also loved Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.

Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of the Underworld Part 2
The last time I tuned in, Kirito was busy climbing a tower, and we got nothing but dull exposition and uninspired fight scenes. Also, I vaguely remember Kirito insisting that some woman combed her hair and put on make-up just for attention. Since then, all out war has apparently broken out, and the Americans are somehow involved. Ooh, how can I not get in on that juicy commentary?

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Kan
I think Hachiman sucks, so I hope he ends up with someone just as annoying. Like Yukino or whatever. Yui’s too nice for his self-sacrificing ass.

Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!
I’ve read the manga for this show. There’s nothing unique here. Basically, the love interest has really big boobs. The only upside here is that this isn’t a harem. It really is just a story about one somewhat loner guy and an annoying junior who won’t leave him alone.

Shows I definitely want to watch

Um… yeah, there’s nothing. This pantry is completely empty.

Welp, that lineup is kinda depressing. Anyways, a few shows this season ended up being delayed due to the pandemic. If I get the chance, there are two that I want to continue watching: Appare-Ranman! and Fugou Keiji: Balance:UNLIMITED. They seemed okay. And of course, I’ll still follow Tohru in her quest to end the dumb Zodiac curse.

Please refrain from posting spoilers or using derogatory language. Basically, don't be an asshole.
