Fall 2017 Grab Bag: Sangatsu no Lion, Mahou Tsukai no Yome, and Animegataris

I kinda want to put together a weekly runthrough of the other shows I'm watching. I probably won't have too much to say about each of them, so I'm thinking it would be better if I just did a single post.

3-gatsu no Lion S2 Episode 1

It feels good to have this show back (especially given that I've read the manga for this season mwahahaha). This season pretty much starts where the previous season left off, with Rei teaching shogi to the members of the new Shogi/Science Club. It's nice to see Rei finally making some school friends closer to his age.

When it shifts back into the pro shogi scene, it's an interesting look into how the high-tiered players tempers themselves during the game to gain any possible edge. Overall, the episode looked really good, and I have to admit that the opening animation was pretty nice visually.

Mahou Tsukai no Yome Episode 2

Well, this series is still nice and warm. This week's episode kinda goes more into the magic of this world. I had forgotten this part. Personally, I've always found the idea of splitting magic and sorcery to be unnecessarily confusing, but I don't remember it being a big deal in this show. I think it's just that the terms are used too interchangeably in media.

As a final point, I really liked the episode, but I found the last scene to be a bit forced as a cliffhanger. The preceding scene would have been fine as a stopping point, but it seemed more like Elias intentionally started the next task just to force some tension in the ending. But what can you do?


Honestly, I've been having way more fun watching this series than I was expecting. The basic premise of an anime club is pretty standard, but the references scattered within the show are insane. I've been having a good time figuring each one out. Past that, the characters so far seem to cover a decent spread of anime fandom. I think the conversations so far might be interesting to many bloggers I know because they're the kinds of topics I see discussed in posts a lot.
