As you can tell, I haven’t written anything for ages. So yeah. Hi everybody. Hope you missed me.
Well anyway, in case you haven’t been keeping up to date on twitter trends and recent anime series, at the end of Tamako Market, KyoAni released a semi-cryptic trailer with amusingly enough, nothing but Yuuta pinching Rikka’s cheeks and the message: “Contract Renewed”. Reactions to this possibly being the announcement of a second season have varied from “OMG YES I LOVE THAT SHOW SO MUCH YEAH” to “FUCKING HELL SUCK MY DICK YOU FUCKING MONEY-GRUBBING CUM-GUZZLING SHIT OF AN ANIMATION COMPANY! FUCK YOU.” Here’s my take on it.
Having read part of the manga, Spice and Wolf Season III has been my favourite show of the new season thus far. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha sees the return of the much-beloved duo of protagonists voiced by Ami Koshimizu and Jun Fukuyama, yet the departure from the world portrayed in manga and novels to screen has been rather surprising thus far. Upon first glance one might assume that the anime is made by one of the major animation companies, but it’s produced by ARMS, creator of such highly acclaimed anime such as Queen’s Blade or Night Shift Nurses, as well as what I dare say may be their first serious anime adaptation….by their standards anyway.
People sometimes tell lies, imagine a completely different fantasy world, dream about the distant future, or invent a lover’s relationship that only exists inside their heads. This process repeats from the day we are born until the day we die. Forever and ever. It is depressing. It is shameful. But it is dear to us. “
To show that I’m truly unrepentant and beyond cure, I’m starting Day 1 with a post that has nothing to do with anime and is completely meta! How exciting!
“If something’s not real, it’s not real!”
Dawn of the (Walking) Dead (Fish).
This actually sums the show up pretty nicely.
