Little Girls in a Big World: My Anime List For Spring 2016

Retsuko.jpg
The titular character of Aggressive Retsuko working when she SHOULD be watching anime.

Seeing as the New England weather has finally begun to feel like spring, it’s high time for hanging out with friends, soaking up the sun, and studying for those darn finals.

Or, we could just stay in and watch anime.

While I was hardly impressed by last winter’s lineup – with the exception of ERASED, of course – the current season definitely has a few shows worth looking into. I have a strong preference for anime featuring strong female protagonists, so the following list of three may seem limited to the Magical Girl genre. This is an issue I’ve had with Japan’s latest releases since, well, the beginning of their rise in popularity in the U.S. But nonetheless, Aggressive Retsuko, Flying Witch, and the third season of Sailor Moon Crystal have plenty of action and comedy to offer.

What are you waiting for? Let’s get watching!

Dalin’s Simulcast Corner – Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 18 Review

Let’s get down to business, to defeat…. the Rabbit!? Yes, it is that time again to visit the ultra dramatic and somewhat hilarious antics of Sailor Moon Crystal, where we guess based on the episode title which senshi will get some focus, and then be stolen, and ultimately ignored, at that point in the series. But maybe something different is in store for everyone’s favorite 90’s magical girl? Or maybe we’re just in for another snoozer of an episode…. let’s take a look.

Dalin’s Simulcast Corner – Sailor Moon Crystal Ep. 17 Review: All That Jupiter Love

main_simulcast_version

Ah, Toei. I think it is about time you admit something that is becoming painfully clear: You love the heck out of Sailor Jupiter. Toei, baby, it’s okay to tell us the truth. In fact, many of us love the Thunder Senshi just as much as you do, but at this point, your favoritism is becomingly incredibly, almost laughably obvious.

Dalin’s Simulcast Corner – “We’re Off To The Moon!” Sailor Moon Crystal Review

main_simulcast_version

Fan fiction is a thing, and it was something I never took too seriously, except on rare occasions. One such situation is related to Sailor Moon (duh), and it involves a set of characters that by most standards were never huge fan favorites. They had their moments of admiration, but they were no senshi or Ms. Moon. But with this weekend’s past episode of Sailor Moon Crystal, we finally get to see a fandom wish of quite a few come true.  So prepare your heart for this installment of Simulcast Corner …. it’s gonna be good.
