With spring approaching, it’s time to glance at the packed spring season and some updates.
As always, this list is subject to change.
Watashi no Yuri wa Oshigoto Desu
Air Date: April 6, 2023
As expected, this is one of the many anticipated yuri-genre shows for this year, as it focuses on a high school girl named Hime who wants to protect her image. Unfortunately, she injures someone who works at a café. Therefore, works at a café while that worker recovers, which has an all-girls boarding school theme. But, of course, one girl gives a reaction that Hime didn’t expect. It’s obvious who it is when we find out.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Punch
Air Date: April 3, 2023
Studio: EMT Squared
Of course, our bear-suit-loving teenage girl and her female harem are finally back. Indeed, we will see more fun adventures and lovely yuri moments with Fina and Noa.
Birdie Wing Part II
Air Date: April 7, 2023
Studio: Bandai Namco Pictures
While I haven’t covered the second half, it’s pretty much Eve teaming up with Snake Lady to defeat the mafia and escape death. Eve transfers into Aoi’s high school to do a lot of training and prove her skills to participate in a golf tournament. Of course, Eve is pairing up with Aoi. Also, Aoi manages to get a caddy, Ichina, that kind of resembles Lily.
Of course, while there won’t be any craziness as we have seen from the first season, this show still manages to make golf exciting. So hopefully, we get some lovely moments with Aoi and Eve, along with some golf action.
World Dai Star
Air Date: April 9, 2023
This show is basically focused on girls performing in theater. While we don’t know too much, it should be interesting if it’s something like previous shows that focus on a similar premise.
Kizuna no Allele
Air Date: April 4, 2023
Studio: Wit Studio
At last, we have our VRYoutuber/VTubers show with a Kizuna Ai tie-in. Of course, Miracle wants to be like her as she attends ADEN Academy. Given their popularity in real life, I wonder how a show about VTubering essentially will turn out. We’ll find out soon enough.
Watching, but covered at my own leisure and coverage on Mastodon: Edomae Elf, Tokyo Mew Mew New 2, Cinderella Girls U149
Why Leave Twitter Plug
As expected, Twitter has faced many outages since I left in December. After the end of April, the Mastodon instance I created for the Anime Blogosphere, wider Japanese-media content creator sphere and fans of Japanese media will turn 6 months old. Yes, it’s been that long.
As expected, I have repeatedly urged people to rebuild their following elsewhere. After all, many service disruptions and things are not working on Twitter, given the skeleton crew and the unhinged CEO. Once Twitter finally collapses, which it will eventually, if you haven’t rebuilt elsewhere, you might find it harder to do so. I have voiced my frustration recently over some people unwilling to rebuild elsewhere.
I advise doing so now on Mastodon so you don’t lose your connections and urge your friends to do the same. Suppose you are on Mastodon Social (the big official instance). In that case, I recommend moving your account to our instance since that instance has gone down from becoming overloaded.
Also, there are smaller servers that block big servers like that. Not to mention, it’s harder to connect with other Anime Bloggers on such a big instance as the local and federated timelines are useless given how fast it goes. You are missing many features, such as themes, emoji reactions, extended post limits, Anime-themed emojis, a Twitter-like frontend, etc. You may also find some people on Mastodon that are or were on Twitter.
If you haven’t already, you can join us at https://sakurajima.moe, and if you need instructions on migrating your account, they can be found here. If you need help with regaining access your account, feel free to reach out. You can also find a good amount of anime bloggers there on the local timeline as well, which is a benefit of migrating your account over there.
Lastly, WordPress recently added a Mastodon share button, which everyone should add. You can do so by doing the following.
- Go to the WordPress.com dashboard, go to tools and click Marketing.
- Click the Sharing Buttons tab
- Click the “Edit sharing buttons.”
- Click on Mastodon to make it active. You can reorder as you wish. The Mastodon share button should appear in your posts
There’s not much to report regarding life updates as I’m trucking along. Either way, I’m close to completing WaniKani Level 51. Thus all the Kanji needed for JLPT N2 within a few weeks. I may finish all the Kanji in a few months, although the vocabulary is different.
Feel free to share what you plan to watch in this packed Spring season in the comments.
