Afterwards, I will provide brief comments(If any) regarding the shows based on the rating given. The simulcasts are arranged based on their final episode simulcast date.

The Fire Hunter Season 2:

Japanese Dub: 7.5/10

Honestly, I really like the traditional artwork as well the style of their storytelling as it stands out from the other anime for this season.

My Instant Death Ability is Overpowered:

Japanese Dub: 7/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): This show felt like your typical Isekai that has a very OP character which makes his battles very on-sided. The story was good but lacks depth as well as felt very plain. The only thing keeping the story alive was just the MMO RPG elements used in the series. The character development was at its bare minimum where we don’t learn very much about the characters in the series. Overall its just an average Isekai with an overpowered character.

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): This is quite an interesting BL especially when I did a little background check that there is a live action drama before this animated series came out. The story was excellent was we get to see the main character and his friend obtain this special power only to learn that someone was into them as well as reading other people’s thoughts by simply touching them. The character development was excellent as we see our characters continue to grow as they faced many challenges to achieving their goal. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into BL.

The Wrong Way to Use Healing Magic:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): I thought this show was going to be your typical Isekai with an overpowered hero who overpowers the enemy with his attacks however that is not entirely the case for this show as involves a healer which we don’t normally see. You could say this show is where the healer is a berserker. The story was excellent as we get to see the challenges faced by our healer as he is forced to join the rescue team as well as endure the ridiculous training regime. The character development was also excellent where we can our main character and his friends continue to grow as they meet new people and overcome challenges. Overall, its an excellent show for those who want a different approach for an Isekai anime.

Mashle: Magic and Muscles Season 2:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): They really delivered for the 2nd season of this series as Mash faces more challenges and enemies while on his mission to become a divine visionary. The story was well written as we witness Mash continue to face backlash for simply being in the school by both the seniors as well as the general public. The character development was good as we see him continue to grow during the exam as he faced more opponents as well as new enemies. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into anime involving magic with a hint of comedy.

Solo Leveling:

Japanese Dub: 9/10
English Dub: 8/10
Comments(If any): I was a bit skeptical at first because it vaguely looks like Sword Art Online, however once I started watching, I was proven wrong and mind blown by the show. The story was excellent as we get to see the brutal fate and challenges by our main character as he tries to earn enough money for his mother’s treatment by participating in raids despite his lack of strength before that dramatic turnaround. The character development was also excellent as we see accelerated growth of our main character after he experienced a reawakening which gave him more to work with. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into action/fantasy anime Can’t wait to see what they will bring for the 2nd season.

The Dangers in My Heart Season 2:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: /10
Comments(If any): I’m actually quite glad this series got a 2nd season where we finally reach full circle at the end of it which gave it a satisfying feeling. The story was well written as we get to see more challenges faced by both of them as they journey through their 3rd year while trying to reach a point where they can confess their love for each other. The character development was excellent as we witness more ups and downs throughout their journey with some of them being emotional moments.

The Witch and the Beast:

Japanese Dub: 8/10
English Dub: 7/10
Comments(If any): At first, I though this show would be your typical vampire show but not with this show as involves an interesting journey to achieve the goal while facing challenges along the way. The story was excellent as we get to see our characters investigate each incident for clues in achieving their goal while overcoming challenges. The character development was also excellent especially with Guideau whom saw the most growth given how much she distrusts Ashaf at the beginning. Overall its an excellent show for those who are into fantasy like show with a bit of detective-like work and a bit of vampire elements thrown in. Can’t wait to see their journey continue if 2nd season gets the green light.
