Toonami Roundup: 10/13/18


This week in… Toonami…

My Hero Academia episode 22: In the most predictable episode yet, Ochaco gets blown to pieces by Bakugo. How would anyone not see this coming? The only way this tournament can end is with Izuku vs. Bakugo. Unfortunately, the forced love story between Ochaco and Izuku isn’t cute like Kirito and Asuna, rather it’s about as cliche as it gets. Rating (out of four stars): **

Naruto: Shippuden episode ?: Naruto’s off singing the froggy song while Tsunade angsts over what to do about Madara Uchiha. Eventually, she figures out how to get Naruto out of harm’s way by sending him out on a S-rank mission, which is secretly just to hide him. Rating: ***

Boruto episode 3: Boruto continues causing trouble. Seriously, not much more to say about this one. Rating: **

FLCL: Alternative episode 6: The main girl “learns to love” (a la Elsa in Frozen) and as a result, saves the Earth. As glad as I am that FLCL is finally finished, this episode wasn’t half bad. Please, no more FLCL seasons. This show needs to rest in peace. Rating: **1/2

Attack on Titan episode 45: After much angsting, Eren turns into a Titan, only to be frozen and pulled out. Have I ever told you how sick to my stomach this show makes me? Seriously, this show and Parasyte are the only shows that have made me physically ill while watching. This episode wasn’t all that bad, though. Rating: **1/2

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable episode 8: This episode made absolutely no sense at all, and for that reason, it was the best show on Toonami this week. Koichi gets tormented by a girl who fell in love with him, and then wants to kill him. Then soon he’s playing Who Wants to be a Millionaire with her, with incorrect answers requiring him to eat disgusting stuff. I hope that doesn’t make any sense to you, because it makes less sense than that. It is complete nonsense. However, it is not “unintentionally entertaining,” it’s just flat-out funny. Rating: ***

Hunter x Hunter episode 115:

Best episode of the week: Jojo

Worst episode of the week: Boruto

Best character of the week: The crazy girl from Jojo (don’t want to google her name in fear of spoilers)

Worst character of the week: Ochaco Uraraka
