The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful. Here are the last six from the new season:
Listen – Episode 1 of Sunday Without God from Studio Madhouse with the opening “Birth” by Eri Kitamura. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.
Listen – Episode 1 of il sole pentra Ie illusioni ~ Day Break Illusion from AIC with the opening “traumerei” by LiSA. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.
Listen – Episode 1 of Silver Spoon from A-1 Pictures with the opening “Kiss you” by miwa. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.
Listen – Episode 1 of Gatchaman Crowds from Tatsunoko Production with the opening “Crowds” by WHITE ASH. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.
Listen – Episode 1 of Danganronpa: The Animation from Lerche with the ending “Zetsubosei: Hero Chiryoyaku” by Suzumu feat. Soraru. It is streaming on Funimation.
Listen – Episode 1 of Stella Women’s Academy, High School Club C3 from GAINAX with the opening “Shape My Story” by Anna Yano. It is streaming on Crunchyroll.

I feel like the mysterious Danganronpa character will most likely turn out to be some sort of law enforcement officer. I think that the characters have the odd stacked against them, so they need a character like her on the show to turn things around a bit.
For me, the show’s not great. I’ve only seen one episode, but these characters seem like they should all die.
I just figure a detective character is a good mentor for the main character as he seems super mediocre so far.
Danganronpa is sort of teetering on our stay or drop list.
Most of the summer season has fallen off for me. I take one look at most of them, and can’t be bothered.
