A bit of a disclaimer: Not a general Fate fan, but do not appreciate what was put out in recent years...with the exception of standouts like Ufotable's adaptations of F/SN and UBW. And just like last year with A-1 Pictures' Fate/Apocrypha, it has gained notoriety with people whom are disinterested from the insane amount of characters to the wonky action scenes...but hey, now it's Shaft's turn to take on the toll with Fate/Extra Last Encore, based on the game of the same name, and granted, I only read the original Extra manga so opinions differ.

For now, I would say that this series still has some read more

Yup, who would have thought that it's one of the most hyped anime to start off 2018 (besides Violet Evergarden). With the standard of 2-cour shows, I cannot stress this enough: The starting screentime somehow starts off misguiding people about what the show is and its plot, but slowly as the series progresses it gets better with more understanding, and that is the result of Darling in the FranXX, the first of Studio Trigger's 2018 collabs (in this case with A-1 Pictures), although most of the staff involved have past experiences from Gainax (which have done well-known mech shows like Evangelion and Gurren Lagann).

The most anticipated sequel to one of the best shounen manga is here, and it comes back with a vengeance, this time facing the good vs. evil trade of the Seven Deadly Sins vs. Ten Commandments (Demon clan)!

Following Season 1's events at the end where Hendrickson was defeated by Princess Elizabeth's eye-roaring magic, he comes back for another way to defeat Meliodas and his gang with the Ten Commandments, and expect this to be an action-packed whole-goodness sequel that can surpass Season 1 in every way!

The characters themselves need no introduction (if you've read the manga or watched Season 1 by the same studio, A-1 read more

I'll honestly admit, as bland as this show goes, it is decently entertaining to know the character interactions are always centered around having alcohol, as in different types while giving teaching lessons about them. Unfortunately, it also bores me to tears sometimes.

Story:
A trope of women in different age groups and occupations, lamenting over their work conditions and then pouring them over alcohol. And yup, that's the summary, just great. Thankfully this series are 12-min episodes otherwise the boredom sets in really quick.

Characters:
The 4-lady crew:
Energetic Michiru Amatsuki whose new interest is drinking beer and resting on top of the problems of the cast.
Sisters Makoto (younger) and read more

Remember last season's Juuni Taisen? Everything about it is replicated here, a game about who is superior, just presented tremendously better than the former. And I'd hate to admit, this show's trash, full of ecchi scenes and whatnot, but it's what I'd like to call, it's so bad it's good.

Story:
The story of Killing Bites is similar towards the disregarding of Juuni Taisen: people-hybrids known as Brutes, fighting over in a competition called the Destroyal, in an effort to see who emerges the winner of the game, and so, "The ones with the sharpest fangs will win", let the game begin!

Characters:
On one hand, main MC college read more

This might be disinteresting, or in the lines of Toji no Miko, a good story plot that moves too fast for it's own good, that breaks the flow of the story and becomes far too convoluted to the understanding of many. As such with Winter 2018 2-cours, the worst record for 2-cour starts.

Story:
In a post-futuristic world where androids known as hIEs are created as a means to collide with the human world, these artificial beings are a measure of far superior AI human technology, and when that threatens the future of humanity, creating corruptions around the city, our MC 17-year-old Arato Endou encounters Lacia, an read more

Despite the name of this series, it's NOT just about tonkotsu ramen BUT rather it's a setting in Fukuoka City, where the Hakata region is filled with 2/3 civilians and 1/3 hitmen, and so sets the story for this series.

On a sidenote (Episode 4), we finally know that Banba's favourite pastime is baseball, hence this series' name: Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens.

Story:
In Hakata where people exist in the form of spy hitmen, there exists a cross-dressing Ling Xianming, who like any other hitmen, go after their specific targets for revenge and whatnot...until his sister Ling Qiaomei joins the fray when the mayor's family abducted amd killed her, read more

In this series, follow Hakumei and Mikochi, 2 girls of height 9cm tall, living in the forest and their daily lives that give them the purpose of living a tiny life.

The story setting is pretty much like last season's Girls' Last Tour with the episodic setting and no set story, all you need to know is that the stories revolve around their daily commune with each other and the people around them, and from a manga adaptation, it is well presented.

The world of Hakumei to Mikochi or Tiny Little Life In The Woods is quite lush and good-looking as expected of Lerche's quality when it read more

Another SoL-themed anime, and really gotta love this show to bits, alongside Gakuen Babysitters, in the form of toy-ish mummies and babies respectively!

Story:
As typical as the parents aren't around at home, Sora Kashiwagi, a high school student, receives a lifesize mummy coffin from his adventurous dad, only to realize that it houses a small adorable mummy called Mii-kun, along with a thick instruction manual on how Mii-kun works (like it's insane that Mii-kun NEEDS so much instructions)! But the charm of it is really how it boils down to the interactions between Sora and his friends along with Mii-kun and the other critters.

Characters:
So Sora X read more

This series is just pure bliss. I honestly couldn't remember when was the last time I've watched another anime had this idea (probably more than a decade ago or didn't exist), but it was the icing on the cake that did it for me.

Story:
17-year-old Akira Tachibana, once a quiet but prolific track and field member, but due to her knee injury, her niche was brought to an end. Working at a family restaurant to get her life up and running again, comes the admiration and love to the restaurant manager, 45-year-old Masami Kondou. Yet knowing that this divorced man has a son to bear and read more
