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: Tada Never Falls In Love – The Colour of Rainbow is Rainbow

Mitsuyoshi Tada encounters a strange young foreigner not just once, but several times, while on a quiet outing to take some photographs. The young woman, Teresa Wagner, is a massive fan of a historical drama called Rainbow Shogun, and bases all her knowledge of Japan on this one fictional show. After a few more chance encounters than is strictly reasonable, Tada brings her back to his grandfather’s coffee shop to keep her from getting into any more mischief until her travelling companion can come and pick her up. Not long after they finally part ways Tada discovers that she will actually be staying in the hotel next door for the foreseeable future. What are the odds? Life isn’t going to be peaceful for Tada for much longer…
