- Tabimachi Late Show – Tabi Machi Late Show will have a theme of “goodbyes and journeys.”
- Nijiiro Days – The cute boys doing cute things genre is usually a miss for me, but oh, how I wish it wasn’t! Unless sports are involved, boys-focused moe shows tend to fall flat. These guys straight-up do nothing in a club that prides itself in how much it’s not an actual, functioning club with any activities. The main hook here seems to be that one of the guys has a crush on a girl at their school, and all his friends endlessly mettle in their relationship (or lack thereof). Want a cute, shoujo show with guys goofing off? This is a perfectly relaxing show to chill to. I just can’t say it’s for me. At all. (Overcooled)
