Summer 2017 Anime First Impressions part 2: Compulsive Gambler, Welcome to the Ballroom, Made in Abyss, Shoukoku no Altair

With the usual disappointing start to the anime season, where for some reason all the truly bland stuff is stuffed into the first few days of the month, we’re now into the meat of the latest anime season where the delicious filling lies. There’s some good stuff here is what I’m saying.

Summer 2017 Anime first impressions: Touken Ranbu, Clean Freak Aoyama-kun, Knight’s and Magic, and Restaurant to Another World

Spring 2017 anime hot takes

This was going to be First Impressions but since episode 4s are already starting to appear I figured Hot Takes would be better.
