Mel is Watching | Spring 2018 Week 7


Howdy everyone!!

Welcome back to a new edition of Mel is Watching, not gonna lie I’m surprise I’m actually able to keep with this post.

As you know I drop Persona 5: The Animation last week, not because it was a bad anime, in fact I like the story, the visual and the music, however it wasn’t able to keep me interested during the fighting scene, those scene wasn’t really exciting since the studio decide to keep the same battle format than in the video game. It it this format look nice in a video game, I cannot say the same when it come to anime. So this is why I dropped the series.

Now let’s take a look at how the watch list look this week

  • Black Clover
  • Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc
  • Darling in the Franxx
  • My Hero Academia, Season 3
  • Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online
  • Tokyo Ghoul: re

***** Warning Spoilers ~ Warning Spoilers *****

Episode 32 – Three-Leaf Sprout

I will stop guessing when that arc will end, cause which time they come up with something else to continue it. An arc that could have last 2 episode is now at four, amazing, but I should have known something like that was coming. That being said Gauche you are cute but you are a jerk I hope you eventually realize that if you want to make Marie happy, you will have to start caring about the people around her.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc
Episode 19 – Sakura and Akiho’s Lullaby

Sakura and Syaoran relation just make me smile, there are so cute together, I would like to ask Clamp to give us an official artwork from their wedding please…
Other than Sakura having a very effective attack on Syaoran heart, we doesn’t learnt much other than Sakura’s magical power are growing stronger.
With only three episode left, I really wonder how this series will end.

Darling in the Franxx
Episode 19 – When the Sakura Blooms

With only five episode left to the series, I really wonder how they will answer all the question. There is so many thing that need to be explained.
I was really happy to see that wedding, since I kind of caring only about what happen to those kid. Futoshi finally give-up and decide to give his support to Kokoro and Mitsuru, this wedding should have been a beautiful moment…

My Hero Academia, Season 3
Episode 7 (45) – What a Twist

This was an other solid episode high in emotion.
I’m still unsure about what hurt me the most about this episode, Bakugo being kidnapped or Midoriya in pain cause he couldn’t saved him. Both was really hard to watch, even if I knew this was coming. I also know what is coming next, but I’m still stress about it.
The aftermath of the attack as also hard, seeing all the student hurt was painful those poor baby.

Episode 6, SAO Loser

I like how they talk about the previous season without showing anything from the series due to the studio right.
This week we met the real life M-san and for some reason I had that feeling he would be a cutie, however I didn’t thought he will be as crazy as Pito.
In the next episode, Karen/LLENN will join the second SJ with the help of one of her friend.
This show still doesn’t have a clear direction but it seems to want to introduction something like a plot…

Tokyo Ghoul: re
Episode 7 – mind: Day of Recollection

The auction case is over, Big madam is dead, Haise took custody of Hinami over Arima since he is the one you “beat” her.
The episode was a smooth one, the member of the Quinx Squad got promoted, Toru take special lesson with Suzuya to wield knife and Haise seems to be the perfect housewife. Also I like how Haise seemed to slowly remember his past, without really knowing where those memories come from. I like who there are gradually introduced to the series.. The episode end on the very heartbreaking scene of Tsukiyama.



As the season go, I really wonder how show like Darling in the Franxx and Cardcaptor will end, both show doesn’t have a lot of episodes left but so many question that need answer.

I don’t worry too much about how Tokyo ghoul will go since we had the confirmation of an other season, hopefully they will not stop it at 2 (or 4 depending how you count) and continue cause from what I know there is still lot of thing to cover.

This is all for me!
