The Princess of Snow and Blood #03 — Charlie’s Angels

  Lot of crossdressing this week. Impressions: It's definitely leaning into the soap opera intrigue angle more than the badass secret agents angle that I'd prefer, but as…

To Your Eternity #01 — Sad Boys Dying With Alien Wolves

  Maximum tragedy. Impressions: This appears to answer the question "What if we remade The Thing, but as a depressing melodrama instead of a horror movie?" An alien…

Seven Knights Revolution #02 — Icy-Hot

    I like how the powers so far are fire, ice, and grappeling hook. I was originally soft-planning to cover whichever of Dragon and Combatants was less…

Tokyo Revengers #01 — Ugly Crying

  Not so much revenge here, or even the promise of any. Impressions: There's significant irony here in what, by the swelling triumphant background music, is meant to…

Battle Athletes ReSTART #01 — Powered by Corn

  I would say potatoes, but there's no pun there. Impressions: After the last few plot 'driven' episodes today, it's weird that this one feels at least slightly paced. It's…

Shadows House #01 — THIS IS SOME GODDAMNED TASTY BREAD

Vivy #03 — Babysitting in Space

Back Arrow #14 — Giant Non-Lethal Apocalypse Cannon

SSSS.Dynazenon #02 — Enemy Band Geeks

  How nice that they're similarly melodramatic. Impressions: I think I'm okay with putting this on the bubble pending a particularly strong episode next week. It didn't do…

Backflip!! #01 — Demerits for Lack of Fidelity to Program Regulations

  Boy, that's a lot of CGI. Impressions: I looked this up on the internet, and a group rhythm gymnastics program is 2:15 to 2:30 long. This is…

Tenka Seiha

Idol Land Saga #13 — What Zombies?

  We hate our own premise. I will get to the other show today, but it's about rhythm gymnastics, doesn't air for another hour or two, and I…

Fairy Ranmaru #01 — Brought to You By Drugs

The Saint’s Magic is Omnipotent #01 — Privilege and Pretty Boys

Tenka Seiha

Odd Taxi #01 — Please Stop Saying Bruce Springsteen

Tenka Seiha

I Shaved and Took In a Runaway #01 — Upskirtapalooza

  Yeaaaaah, no. Impressions: While not quite as creepy as the other Monday show about an adult hitting on a teenage girl, this is still plenty creepy. Sure, he doesn't try to…

Seven Knights Revolution #01 — Power of Grappling Hook!

Those Snow White Notes #01 — Suddenly, SWAT
