[Review] Tiger & Bunny 2, Part 1

It’s nothing short of amazing to me that I’ll be posting back-to-back reviews about anime sequels a decade past their original series, first Thermae Romae, and now Tiger & Bunny. Having first aired in 2011, the franchise gifted us a film in 2014, and now we’re treated to the sequel in 2022. Like the original, we’ll have a 2-cours, 25-episode second season, the first thirteen episodes of which are fully out on Netflix.

This sequel launches us right back into the action where we last left our heroes, only this time around the veterans have a fresh cast of young heroes eager to prove their worth. Opposing them are a mysterious duo of antiheroes seemingly with little purpose other than proving themselves stronger than any other NEXT, as well as a shadow organization Ouroboros.

Taste Test: A Couple of Cuckoos

Now that A Couple of Cuckoos is finally joining the rest of this season’s spring shows, we can take a look into the surrounding hype. Draggle and I briefly discussed the source material in our season preview (also releasing a bit late), and from what I’ve gathered I am to expect a whole lot of familial and romantic drama somewhere along the vein of Love and Lies. From what I’ve seen so far, this is not an inaccurate comparison.

Spring 2022 Bite-Size Menu

There’s a onslaught of anime airing this spring season and I’ve taken the time to try them all. Sounds terrifying, doesn’t it? And while I do have way more on my plate than I can handle, per usual, below I’ve listed the new shows that you should absolutely watch or at the very least try.

Note: sequels have been removed in favor of new works

[Review] My Dress-Up Darling

The creators of My Dress-Up Darling couldn’t have named this series any better, because it accurately summarizes the adoration this show’s heroine received this winter. No other girl could even compete in the light of Marin’s glittering smile and outheld hand. You’d have an easier time just going with the flow than trying to ignore her and the force of her cosplay aspirations–not that I think you should do that. I 100% support joining Gojou on this journey that is cosplay and friendship and accepting your passions.

[Review] How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom Part 2

A sadly common scene in Realist Hero

Now that we’re fully into the first and second weeks of the new spring season, I’ll be finishing up my winter reviews a bit more succinctly for my own sanity. This in between time is always a bit crazy trying to finish up one season’s shows but still stay up to date with trying all the newly airing ones. Thankfully, most of the remaining winter anime I have yet to discuss are mostly pretty mediocre, or in the case of this Realist Hero sequel, completely forgettable.
