Summer 2015 – Act 1 Update

Hey, folks. Summer was looking like one of the weakest anime seasons in recent memory, but Haru and Yata found a few things worth sticking with past first impressions week. With another month under their belt, how many will continue to make the cut this time?

(Hopefully a lot, because…)

By the way, although it’s been almost one year since this site’s inception, we’re still changing things up a bit and trying to work out some kinks.

At the moment, we’re going with this title format for future monthly updates, but if you have any suggestions, comment and let us know!

First Impressions – Summer 2015

Ah, summer. The nice fresh air, vacations and road trips, unbearable heat…bugs…work…nevermind, why go through that when you could stay in and watch fuckin’…anime? Haru and Yata watched a handful of pilots (only pilots) from this first week of the summer season and are here to tell you their thoughts. God Eater isn’t out yet, and I think that’s the only notable thing not included here. The outlook on this season going in was that it would be carried by a few sequels and we weren’t expecting much out of the new shows. Some surprised us, if only barely, and some raised the bar. Hell, Haru and Yata even disagreed about multiple things for once! What’s worth watching and worth moving on from already? Us bros give you the low-down on summer 2015.
