Maybe #2 (Akudama Drive, Moriarty the Patriot, Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina and MAGATSU WAHRHEIT )

A little similar to my ‘Abandoned’ posts I thought I’d do a second ‘Maybe’ one – though this time it’s doubling as a seasonal sampling kinda thing, I suppose 🙂

So I’ve seen episode one (or two) of each of these four shows and have yet to decide which I’ll keep going with. Well, it’d probably more accurate to say, which I’ll watch weekly, which I’ll save for later, and which one I’ll do write-ups on episode-per-episode.

(As I mentioned before, I don’t think I can keep up with reviewing two seasonal shows each week).

Akudama Drive

I’ve been hoping that there would be a science-fiction/action show this season and Akudama Drive seems like a cyberpunk feast when it comes to the visuals – though I’ve chosen a deceptively happy split second from the episode.

This feels like it will be way over the top, though at this incredibly early stage I don’t yet have a reason to get invested with most of the cast.

Moriarty the Patriot

As this is a detective show, I’ll probably give it a shot at least for a few more episodes. The idea that Holmes’ nemesis was once fighting for the unfortunate is fun, so I enjoyed this opening episode.

Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina

I think this will be more generally cute stuff amongst episodic storytelling, more so than say, something like Kiki’s Delivery Service or Little Witch Academia – which certainly doesn’t disqualify it for me.

However, two episodes in and I think I’ll save this to watch every now and then, rather than each week.


I quickly got a sense that this would have a large scale, from the opening shots, and there is a lot going on – in a good way. I could probably watch this weekly but maybe I won’t write about it each time, to manage my time better. (Based on a video game, which doesn’t automatically mean it will be a poor show by any means).

Anything caught your eye for this season? (There are a few shows on CR that I can access (just not so easily via web, compared to if I had the app) but I haven’t listed them here).

  1. I have Magatsu Wahrheit on my list of to-watch shows, but will probably wait until nearer the end of the season so I can binge it.

    At the moment, I’m just going to follow DanMachi 3 and Iwa Kakeru!: Sport Climbing Girls. It’s tough because I want to watch everything, but I need to find the balance between reviewing and writing fiction.

      • It’s a hard one actually. I’m feeling like I’ve let Fire Force down by not covering season two, but I figure I’ll do some arc posts once it’s finished. Then I see all the new titles and everyone talking about them and start to question what I’m doing.

        The biggest thing that’s helping though is being able to get posts ready we’ll ahead of time which is nice and means I can do a couple of seasonal shows and not feel pressured to get the posts out in time, especially as once I’ve set a schedule I hate to miss it.

  2. Well as I said with my backlog being as huge as it is, I’m not watching anything new this season. I really want to clear some stuff up before starting with new stuff. Despite some things that have already caught my eye, and are tempting me to watch them, I’m resisting that temptation at the moment😂😂

  3. Journey of Elaina looks pretty interesting. Has that adventure slice of life feel to it just based off of your screen cap and the title. I’ll probably watch that first once it finishes airing.
