Thoughts on 2018's Spring Anime Premieres, Part 2

In case you missed yesterday's post, I did terrible about keeping up or even starting anime last season. So to motivate myself to start all the anime I'm interested in this season, I decided to write a post that turned into two about my thoughts on the first episodes of each show. There's so many I want to watch this season! For the most part, I can tell by the end of the first episode whether I'll like an anime or not. I've only found a couple I'm meh on so that makes me happy! So today I'm talking about the second set of premieres I watched and what I thought of them.

Yotsuiro Biyori
 Premiered: April 10th on Crunchyroll

Guys! Yotsuiro Biyori is the most chill anime ever! It's about four guys running a tea shop and that's the whole show. It sounds too simple but it's SO good! Plus, it's super relaxing to watch! Although, it made me super hungry with all the anime food porn. 😅 And three of the main characters are voiced by the actors who voice Victor Nikiforov, Midoriya Izuku, and Nozaki-kun! This anime made me super happy and I can't wait to watch more of it!

Space Battleship Tiramisu
Premiered: April 2nd on Crunchyroll

I really wanted to like Space Battleship Tiramisu, but this anime is just not for me. For such short episodes (~7 mins), the animation is great and the mechas are cool but that's where my appreciation for it ends. The humor and the main characters grated on my nerves. I'm not going to continue with this one.

Butlers X Battlers
Premiered: April 11th on Crunchyroll

Butlers X Battlers was... something. Overall, the episode was pretty meh till the last few minutes. It was a poorly executed episode for a premiere not to mention confusing. I'm a bit disappointed because the premise sounds so cool. The characters were interesting. The main character comes off as kind of a dick but the other characters seem cool especially Holmes, Watson, and Hikari. I'll give it another episode or two to catch my attention before I give it up.

Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku
Premiered: April 12th on Amazon Prime

Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku was one of my most anticipated animes of the spring season and the first episode was so great! It gave me serious Recovery of an MMO Junkie vibes but with different kinds of otaku and not just gamer otaku. I loved it! The characters are great so far! And I already kind of ship one of the romances. I'm really excited to watch this one this season and learn more about the characters! Also, the opening credits were glorious!

Premiered: April 8th on Crunchyroll

Okay. I'll be honest. I'm still not 100% sure what Caligula is about but I'm totally intrigued after watching that first episode! It's looking like it's going to be a sci-fi/horror psychological thriller and a bit of a mindf*ck set around "the world is not as it seems trope". And I'm totally here for it! I can't wait to see what happens next!

Libra of Nil Admirari
Premiered: April 8th on Crunchyroll

The first episode was mostly setup but I can tell that I'm going to dig Libra of Nil Admirari. It has cursed books and it really embraces that it's a reverse harem anime. That end credits was something else. 😅 The characters look like they're going to be fun. Plus, I'm really interested to see where they go with the story. I'll definitely be continuing this one!

So that's all for my anime premiere thoughts posts! I wasn't able to get to Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Matosan and Last Hope (Juushinki Pandora) because Netflix doesn't have them uploaded yet. I'll be posting my impressions for both of them in my Spring Anime Twitter Thread if you want to see what I think when I do get to watch them.

What shows are you watching this season?
