Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka (Season One)

Having defeated the Disas, Asuka tries to return to normal, but there’s no escaping her past. Once a Magical Girl, always a Magical Girl.

What did you watch?

Magical Girl Spec-Ops: Asuka was part of the Winter 2019 lineup and one that I was particularly looking forward to, especially after how much I enjoyed Magical Girl: Raising Project. The animation looked slick and it looked to continue the strange meshing of cute and violent.

What’s it about?

Asuka was part of the Magical Nine. She was selected by an envoy from the spirit world to help humanity defeat the Disas, a race of magical monsters intent on taking over the world. They won and now things can return to normal. Not for Asuka, however, she is plagued by nightmares from the battlefield and struggles to settle down again.

With a new breed of terrorism and an illegal magical item black-market, the world governments are setting up groups to counter. The Japan based M Squad already has Magical Girl War Nurse on board and hope to convince Asuka to come out of retirement.

What did you watch?

All right, we’re already two weeks into the new season of anime and so far so good. This was the third of the three shows that I decided to watch this time around. If you’re interested, I’m also reviewing Fruits Basket and Demon Slayer: Kimetso no Yaiba. Well, that should be enough to keep any spoilers from reaching those that don’t want them, so let’s get on with this review.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Episode 2) – Trainer Sakonji Urokodaki

Tanjiro and Nezuko follow the directions given to them by the demon slayer, Giyu. On their way, they come across a shrine and the ominous scent of blood!

What did you watch?

Can’t believe I almost put this series off until they were all out. I’ve only seen two episodes of Fruits Basket and one of Fairy Gone, but I’m pretty confident that I can say this will be my favourite of the three. So, before I get to exactly why, you should know that there will be spoilers beyond this point, so this is your chance to watch it quickly and then come back. Otherwise, read on…

With the cat out of the bag… so to speak, Tohru Honda now knows what she’s got herself into, well, almost. Now, she will have to wait to see if the head of the Soma family will allow it.

What did you watch?

It’s already the second week of the Spring 2019 schedule and I’ve managed to keep myself from jumping into all the other shows that catch my eye. Admittedly, I do have several shows from the Winter schedule that haven’t finished yet, so I’ll have those to review soon as well. But then you’re not here for that, we’re talking about Fruits Basket episode two, so let’s dive in.
