As it seems to be the case, tryouts is a hectic part of the season. Falling behind on episode reviews is nothing new to me but what is driving me crazy is that I had to put a couple of projects on hold for a bit to keep up with what’s new and current. Right now, I got a few episodes of Banana Fish and the Princess Principal dub/re-watch to catch up on, not to mention I need to finish my coverage on Magical Girl Raising Project. It sucks though it could be worse. It could be Fall 2017 all over again where I was eternally behind. Hopefully, I can tackle Winter 2019’s premieres more smoothly.
Oh but enough about my first world problems. We’re three weeks into the season so let’s see what’s made the cut so far.
Episode Reviews (Subject to Change):
- Bloom Into You (Ep. 3)
- The Girl in Twilight (Ep. 4)
- Goblin Slayer (Ep. 3)
- Iroduku: The World in Colors (Ep. 3)
- Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (Ep. 3)
- SSSS.Gridman (Ep. 3)
A standalone post on SSSS.Gridman‘s third episode will be out ASAP.
Bunny Girl Senpai I almost locked for Episode Reviews but eh, let’s first see how the next arc pans out before I make a final decision during the midseason.
The Girl in Twilight I’ll admit is an odd possibility. It’s hardly my favorite but gah, it’s so strange and still very entertaining so who knows. The plan was to originally save Eps. 3 and 4 for a Lightning Round but I might actually write separate posts on each of them. They’re so wildly distinct from each other.

Hopefully you’ll have time to get back to PriPri and MGRP – you’re doing so well on those!

Thanks, Derek. Really appreciate it as always!
I’m hoping to get PriPri back up to speed this week. I wish I got Ep. 4 out last week but as usual, life gets in the way and the newer shows must take priority. I suppose timing doesn’t matter much considering that the show has already ended but still. Oh well, I’d rather make it something I can be proud of rather than just bang it out.
After that, I’ll finish MGRP. Being stuck with just two episodes left is agonizing. The last time I felt this way was with Girls’ Last Tour which I left off on Ep. 8 out of 12 (it’s maybe worse though since I’ve yet to finish coverage for that show).
