We’re on vacation! No reviews scheduled for the rest of the week, except whatever Oigakkosan writes up. Regular service to resume next week. —RABUJOI STAFF

This morning we were heartbroken to hear about the over two dozen victims of an arson attack at Kyoto Animation this morning. The details of the attack are shocking. We extend our sympathies to their families; they are in our thoughts. You can donate to the KyoAni team here.

Dropped: Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin and Fairy Gone

I’ve run into a little issue with these shows: I just have no drive whatsoever to watch or review them. The meh has consumed me. If these were great shows like, say Made in Abyss or 3-gatsu no Lion, that would be one thing. But I have no emotional connection to either, both are marginal at best, and their flaws have been discussed in the last reviews. MyAnimeList may slightly under-rate them, but they’re still just not good enough to keep me on board, so better to say bye now than drag it out.

Note to Readers: We’ll be offline most of the weekend, which unfortunately means no fresh-squeezed anime reviews until Sunday at the earliest (unless Oigakkosan emerges from his burrow).

It’s not ideal, what with the season just starting (and frankly, kind of flagging) and a couple new shows on the horizon, but RABUJOI’s Summer Staff Data Collection Retreat is long overdue. Memories must be made!

So take care, all, and as always, thanks for reading…when we have stuff to read!
