Two new reviews for you today featuring shows that are completely different. If you’re looking for some humour and silly action check out Kavik Ryx‘s review of Keijo!!!!!!!!, a series that takes sports anime to its extremes.

Or if you want something more dramatic, have a look at AC‘s glowing review of the second season of my pick for the best anime of 2016, Descending Stories: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. Such honours are not granted lightly!

We’re back with a couple reviews from Kavik Ryx. First we take a step back to 2015 to highlight a series that many consider among the best Kyoto Animation have ever produced.¬†Hibike! Euphonium brought many of that studio’s strengths together into a powerful series.

In contrast, our second review is of a series that failed to impress, to say the least. Magical Girl Raising Project managed to bomb on several levels, and doesn’t seem to have added anything to the genre is supposedly represents.

Hi everyone! Today we’ve got two new reviews filled with youthful energy. First up is AC‘s take on Poco’s Udon World, a story about rediscovering one’s childhood with the help of an unusual little boy. See if you feel compelled to take a sudden trip to the countryside.

I also present my thoughts on the latest season of Haikyuu!! Highschool is one of those rare moments where sport can completely consume your life, as it does for the Karasuno squad. Volleyball is life and I will hear no argument otherwise!
