Spring 2018 Weekly Roundup: Week Two – I Am Thou, Thou Art Tired

So we’re already into the second week of Spring anime! After all those First Impressions posts (which I kinda fell down on towards the end… there’s so much stuff and I got sick halfway through the first week!) I already feel exhausted. To keep myself from watching too much stuff, I need to be more picky about what I will and will not continue. I’ve already dropped a handful of series that showed promise in their first episode due to not delivering fast enough, and I expect that to continue over the next couple of weeks. For brevity, I haven’t included anything where only the first episode is out, because I have already covered those in excruciating detail!

So, what second episodes have I watched this week? What did I love, what was just okay, and which series have I had to ultimately say goodbye to? See below to find out!

Spring 2018 First Impressions: Cute High Earth Defense Club HAPPY KISS! – Boys Don’t Get Any More Magical Than This

Time has passed since the original Earth Defense Club protected Binan High School, and now their names are just a legend. Kyotaro and his friends have taken over their old club room, but little do they know that they’re about to take over their mission to protect the Earth as well! When Karls, a prince from another planet called Honyala Land with the ability to turn into an otter, mysteriously appears one day when they’re bathing and gives them the power to transform into Magical Knights, the group can’t quite believe what has happened. They will need to get used to using their new powers quickly though, because an enemy group of knights called Edelstein that look suspiciously like the student council are determined to defeat them!
