My (Twitter) reactions to the first episodes of the Fall 2016 season

October 16, 2016

As before I'm collecting here all of my tweeted reactions to the first episodes I've seen (in the order that I saw them).

  • Izetta episode 1: Now that's how you start an (action) episode and make me like the characters. And want to see more, of course.

  • BBK/BRNK episode 13: It's back, it's fun, and I liked seeing the core cast again. We'll have to see where this storyline goes, of course.

  • Brave Witches episode 1: I guess that was okay, although it's nowhere near the standard set by Izetta. I suppose I'll watch the next ep too.

  • Flip Flappers ep 1: This was nice but it wasn't stunning, & Papika is a character archetype that often irritates. Still, solidly promising.

  • Drifters episode 1: I think I'm supposed to be interested in these people and what's happening to them, but I'm not in the least.

  • March comes in like a Lion episode 1: That was a solid & understated drama, with a lot more implied than said. I definitely like it so far.

  • Sound! Euphonium S2 episode 1: There was a bunch of setup here, but it was compelling all on its own. And then the festival, wow.

(A → instead of a ♯ means that the tweet has further discussion.)

I haven't yet watched Girlish Number, which is getting praise, or Fune wo Amu. I may watch either and update this with my first episode reaction. I so far feel that Yuri!!! on Ice is out due to its setting, even if it's apparently very well done and well made.

(I know, March comes in like a Lion also has an ordinary life setting. It gets a special exemption because I loved Honey & Clover and I'm willing to see if the author's magic works a second time.)
