Now for one of my obligatory seasonal anime questions: which shows this Spring season have surprised you with how good they are?
Also feel free to discuss shows that are just plain good, whether that was a surprise or not.
For me there were a lot of shows that I was looking forward to this season, looking at past questions, you should be able to figure out a least a couple of them. But instead of focusing on them, I want to write a little about a show I wasn’t expecting to be good and yet, I have found it to be one of the best of the season so far.
That would be Bakuon!!, for a show that at first glance just appears to be yet another “cute girls doing [fill in the black] cutely” show, it managed to surprise me in just how well executed it is and how much the writer must love motorcycles, but totally understands why the suck at the some time. Most of the best moments of the show remind me of conversations between fans of anything talking shop and how quickly that can devolve into an argument.
If you have ever watched Top Gear and wondered what it would be like if Jezzer, Hamster, Captain Slow and the Stig were cutie anime girls, you now have your answer.
The last question:
If you have any ideas for future questions of the week feel free to leave them in the comments, otherwise, see you next Friday.
