Toonami Roundup: 5/20/17

toonami-2016

This week… in a very unimpressive Toonami…

Dragon Ball Super episode 19: The insufferable training of Goku and Vegeta continues, while Frieza gets wished back by the Dragon Balls. A few humorous moments perk this one up. Rating: **1/2

Dragon Ball Z Kai episode 118: Mr. Satan is hanging on by a thread, while Eighteen and “Mighty Mask” go at it. Then Eighteen blows “Mighty Mask”‘s cover, and Trunks and Goten are disqualified. Eighteen vs. Mr. Satan… not sure who I want to win! Rating: **1/2

Attack on Titan episode 30: With its overdramatic flashback sequence along with Eren and Mikasa acting stupid as usual, AoT fell back into its old ways during this episode. There was some good stuff with Christa and Ymir that kept it from being a bad episode, though. Rating: **1/2

Tokyo Ghoul episode 8: Can this be over already? The Tokyo Ghoul experiment is an abject failure. Rating: *1/2

Hunter x Hunter episode 52: Get used to episodes like this. This is probably the best Hunter x Hunter is going to have to offer once we get into the Chimera Ant arc. Long, thought-out, drawn-out battles. This is actually good stuff compared to what we’ll see later, even though it seems like a letdown from better battles we’ve already seen. Rating: **1/2

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn episode 20: Laplace’s Box is opened. Basically it says that you have to disregard everything that has already been said and throw that out of the window. Anything to prevent a war, right? And somehow, 96 years ago, they knew to write exactly what to say that would be enough to stop this war. Four years until the end of the Universal Century, but it’s felt like four years just going through this series. Rating: *1/2

Naruto Shippuden episode 158: Kakashi dies. What a shame to have such a major character killed off. That’s it for him, I’m sure. We shall never see Kakashi again. His time with us is over. There will never be another Kakashi, that’s for sure. Rating: **

Ghost in the Shell episode 13: A silver medalist in Olympic boxing goes up against Batou in a battle that put me to sleep, literally. The question is, what year did he earn the silver medal? In 2020, in Tokyo? After all, this series is set in 2030; maybe that’s when. Rating: *1/2

Best show of the week: Hunter x Hunter

Most surprisingly good show of the week: Dragon Ball Super

Most disappointing show of the week: Ghost in the Shell
