Project #284.5: Summer Anime 2018 First Impressions

Hello everyone, welcome to the side blog the blogs between the blogs. Well, June is here which means summer vacation has officially begun for everyone out there unless you’re in summer school in which case my heart weeps for you. As always with summer comes new anime and today I’m here to give my first impressions on what’s in store for us next month. There wasn’t that many anime I watched from the spring line up. Most of the anime I’m currently watching is leftovers from the winter season. However, I will admit there were a few animes I enjoyed in the spring such as Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi, Lupin is always fun to watch, My Hero Academia, Food Wars, SAO alternative was surprisingly good, Highschool DxD is always enjoyable, Tokyo Ghoul and Persona 5 have been okay I guess, and I’ve really been enjoying Golden Kamuy. Each character is interesting and the chemistry between Sugimoto and Aspira is great. So with that said, these are my first impressions of the summer anime of 2018.

List here:

Attack on Titan S3

Starting with everyone’s most anticipated anime to watch this year, Attack on Titan is coming back and if you’ve watched the preview video that’s all the reason you need to excited. Watching it.

Focuses on two dancers named Ai and Machi with Machi being a better dancer and considered a genius thanks to the Aguu, palm size entities who grant talent to those who hold them. One day, Machi becomes Seamstress, the people who Aguu and Ai becomes a Savior a group of people who fight the Seamstress in order to save Machi. Not sure about this one so it’s going in the Maybe folder.

It later gets revealed the rest of the tenants are also supernatural. Watching it.

We’re getting a good number of OVAs and movies. There’s going to be an OVA of Golden Kamuy, Violent Evergarden, Kekkai Sensen, Dies irae, and a few others. On the movie front we have My Hero Academia, K, Nanatsu no Taizai, and another Pokémon movie just to name a few.
