I am bored, so let’s play the fortune teller with these seasonal shows.
Folks, I am doing this just for fun. My apologies in advance if I poured salt over your favorite shows. Before that, here’s my favorite line from Danganronpa in case you are wondering how skilled I am in fortune telling.
It will end in an anti-climax. For those who are wishing for some Shin Sekai Yori level of plot explosion, please stop hoping that things will go beyond mildly entertaining at this point. So Jean has a royal blood? Can we now expect some grippling cat and mouse chase courtesy of Dowa royalties? No. The show will drown itself with dialogue. That’s all.
Interviews with Monster Girls
Well, this is kind of hard to predict given its episodic nature. Let’s just say a semi-major conflict will happen (Hikari or Satou being the center) and the show will fall to some melodramatic schmaltz that made me hate the Chuunibyo sequel.
Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen
Boy, my pet show this season showed some cracks last episode. I am betting for a Sound! Euphonium 2 level of trajectory here where it it will stumble right near the end then delivers an ending that will make my jaw drop on the floor. Yakumo will die, obviously, but not without reconciling with his long past dark self. Tissues please?
PS: A sweet bonus: Yotaro and Konatsu finally see themselves as a married couple. Kyaaa.
Kuzu no Honkai
As much as edgy this anime wants to be, I cannot help but think the ending will land on a disappointingly safe note. Yeah, Hanabi and Mugi will end as real lovers, they say. Kanae will slap some truth to Akane and that’s it! These broken people fix themselves in the hardest way possible. It’s not that bad – I am preparing myself to be underwhelmed.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans Season 2
DESPAIR OVERLOAD. SOMEONE SAVE THESE POOR TEKKADAN BOYS! KUDELIA SAVE THEM! ANYONE WHO CAN! GOD DAMN IT.
Also, Iok Kujan will live in the end, Rustal and Julietta dies and so with McGillis. I also have a nagging feeling that Mikazuki will be reduced to a lump of flesh and either Kudelia or Atra will die. I am betting for the latter, but that will be too painful to watch. Ouch.
PS: I hope this prediction goes wrong 100%. I want to see Iok slaughtered Danganronpa style! Uguu.
Sangatsu no Lion
Am I the only one here who thinks Rei will not develop as much as compared with what he was on episode one? Yeah. Shimada will lose his match, and there goes a lot of powerful introspection in the expense of moving the plot and Rei’s characterization.
Meh. The series’ jokes will be worse than before prompting me to drop the show just right before the final episode. I love Aqua a lot. Too much Darkness kills my enjoyment with it. That’s all.
Kobayashi Chi-san no Maid Dragon
Well, as per standard Kyoto Animations ending, Tohru will go back to the dragon realm (also note these emotional bombs this studio will throw). Don’t even try to resist. Then all the tears you cried before will turn to bitterness because she’ll be back as hinted in the final minutes of this show. Teehee.
