The summer season is here to leave an underwhelming spring behind. I’m not gonna say a lot because I have nothing to say. Everything I actually finished was hilarious in all kinds of bad ways and everything that could have been worth a while I didn’t finish because I had no time. But now I do. Sort of. And the summer season looks pretty bad. Not gonna lie, but I still managed to drench out a handful of shows I’m anticipating.

Negima never died, and it lives on in UQ Holder, Ken Akamatsu’s (Yes, that Ken Akamatsu who knows no flops) latest greatest manga that began publishing in 2013, and has since then always been in the top ten most viewed manga in your local illegal manga reading app or website, right behind To Love Ru and Noblesse. Asamatu’s name is more effective than big tiddies, it seems.

Weekly Shonen Magazine said that they’ll announce two important things, and early scans from the magazine state news about an upcoming anime adaptation, and the transfer of the manga to the monthly Bessatsu Shonen Magazine.

This shouldn’t really surprise anyone. I’m sure many people are trippin’ on happiness right now, and although I can’t exactly relate I definitely understand the impact Love Hina and Negima had on anime fans from the mid 2000’s, myself included, who confused Negima for Gintama for two entire years before I tried to watch the former again, and kind of wanted to commit. Either way, good for you, Asamatsu, good for you, fans.

Word has it that the BD discs come with tickets straight to jail. Super Lovers made me uncomfortable in the kind of way that Black Bullet made me rant on Twitter about it, except that Super Lovers actually had (some kind of) potential if it were re-named to Super Brothers, or something. Really, this is getting a second season?

When anyone mentions the name “Mari Okada”, chances are that the first thing that pops up in our mind is going to be melodrama or Anohana, and, to a lesser extent, shows like Nagi no AsukaraMoreover, any muttering of the name Okada probably brings a lot of excruciating sighing, thirteen year olds screeching and some asshole saying that the 2006 version of Fate/Stay Night isn’t actually shit (I wouldn’t even argue with you if you said the 2015 is shit too)

But one thing we can all (sort of) agree on, is that Mari Okada is everywhere. Now more than ever, and you couldn’t avoid her even if you tried, for better or worse.

Today we look at her portofolio and history, and ask ourselves what the extent of her capabilities are, or if she uses any of her capabilities, in the first place.

And it has the most generic premise you’ve ever seen. However, it really is a collaboration through and through, because while the original webcomic is Chinese, Shangai Emon is planning the series and the director is Wang Xin, the actual production is done in Japan, it will premiere on Japanese televisionand the voice cast is Japanese.

The anime is slated for the Summer season, debuting on July 9th – chances are it’s gonna be shit, and you’re only watching because of the background. To be fair, the promotional art is pretty stylish in it’s own way, and by that I mean that the female who totally doesn’t look like she came straight out of Tokyo Ghoul wears cool clothes.

Moreover, the story is essentially about as generic as generic gets, so you can fill out the blanks. It’s about some basic common dude called Cho Soran (emphasizing how basic and plain he is) who one day gets assaulted by zombies (not! ghouls) and a beautiful, big-boobed anime lady with a sword comes to his rescue, and his life changes forever from there onforward probably.

Will you watch it? You know I will give it a chance just to see what a China/Japan looks like. From what I know and from what my 3 second google search told me, this might be the first of its kind, even if China has made (or like, tried to) anime of its own, most notably that one yaoi show that I don’t think ever saw the light of day but had some dope visuals. Anyways.

I might be a little masochistic when I admit that since I haven’t written anything in a  good rhythm for the entirety of the past school year, I found it funny to watch my numbers drop harder than the Kanbaneri hype did. Looking at it that way, it actually felt a hell of a lot shorter.

With that said, I graduated. With that said, I didn’t fall on my heels during the ceremony, and the party was spent eating chicken and drinking beer while talking about porn, and also watching my childhood Chinese friend swear she has never gotten high before, to consequently get  high and and ask me to   please take me home, Selena, because my heels hurt, Selena.

I wasn’t raised in the jungle, so I was the one smart enough to take sneakers with me knowing I’d probably snap my neck if I so much dared to think about walking on them for the entire night.

Anyway, either way, I graduated. Sort of. I still have a small (read: big) make-up exam to do in September, but that’s nothing compared to the workload of Nietzsche and Civil Wars  of my senior year.  This means I have more time than I know what do to do with it, because this year was full of set-backs, figurative hills to cross, a few close calls of mental breakdowns and sudden uncertainty over things I had never been uncertain about – but I kind of survived and I didn’t need grams of a cocaine to do it. That was a joke. I really draw the line (hah) there.

However, my graduation has been less than a week ago and I’m slowly but steadily finding my work rhythm again, because I want to do so many things that require some planning. Naturally, this blog is one part of it.

You see, I didn’t expect Anime Nichijou to turn out like this. And yeah, 5k subs might not sound like a lot, but I’ve met many wonderful people and had some wonderful opportunities presented to me that I couldn’t have gotten otherwise if it weren’t for this blog. And I plan on taking it higher, or at least try to, first of all I should probably write a lot more, then I should probably form my own identity a little better. I’m older now, I’m seventeen, I think I can handle that.

One of the first things on my list is changing the design to symbolize a new era for the blog, the design is kind of crummy right now, I know. Next I want to engage with people a lot more, and over the course of the summer, I want to start up a Youtube channel and see where it goes, amongst other things.

So, my unofficial hiatus has come to an end. Not gonna lie, I’m excited for what’s to come, and I hope you can all stick with me for this adventure, too.

(P.s: I’m absolutely lost on the anime scene right now, and literally only kept up with Mayoiga because, going back to my first point, I’m a masochist and Marx’s directorial debut Communism, the Anime is lit if you want to laugh)

I had exactly zero intentions to watch this. Mostly because it has the most generic description a person could think of, but also because I didn´t know Whitefox could make anime that isn´t actually inherently full of shit. Needless to say, I was shocked. Everyone, watch this show.

And by that I mean that DEENs inaccurately massive proportions and anatomy is back, but no one really cares because we won´t ever get to see animated dicks, anyway. In other words, I´m pretty sure I saw this scene in the 1995 Kids movie or an educational consent video once, and that´s hard to say.

My life is a comedy and this post is way too late because half these shows already debuted and, to no ones surprise, half of them are also shit. I´ll stay pressed.

Normally I´d try to make the introduction to these kind of posts a little more proper. But frankly I don´t even care anymore. A shit ton of anime is coming out, you can read the first part of my season preview, neatly titled “WIT will pay your tuition, Bones will pay your rent” here. You should probably watch Joker Game, Sakamoto Desu Ga, Boku no Hero Academia and that new WIT show if you´re basic, and Dressing Little Boys in Maid Outfits; This is why America hates us and Kissing Little Boys As an Adult; The Animation if you want to go to jail. Bye.
