It’s time, once again, for first impressions! I haven’t been active at all since the Summer 2017 first impressions, and to be honest I’m not sure I have the time and energy to go through with a full set of first impressions this season, but I am going to try! I made the mistake of picking up around 25 new shows again, so it’s going to be a difficult task to write about all of them, though.
A tale of two orphaned boys who grow up together in a fantasy world. Yuno is calm and collected, and a prodigy when it comes to using magic. Asta is hot-headed and loud, but he has no magic powers to speak of. Once again, and I feel like I’ve said this dozens of times in the past, these characteristics are not very novel concepts. However, there really is very little new under the sun, so I won’t perform a final judgment of a show just because the characters are walking cliches. Well, in the end there were a whole lot of other parts of the first episode that also felt very cliched, to the point where I figuratively rolled my eyes basically every minute.
