The Great Passage

The Great Passage is about a bunch of boring people doing the most boring thing in the world: Making a dictionary. The main character's biggest hobby (other than making a dictionary) is staring at people taking the escalator. He eventually falls in love with his land lady's granddaughter for no reason other than "she lives in the same building." After writing a 10 page love letter (half in Chinese) they decide to get married. I guess even though the woman knew she was way better and way more interesting than him she decided to settle because the dating scene was too hard. The eye-catch of each episode is a bunch of dictionaries talking to the audience. It completely destroys the mood and adds nothing to the show. Apparently dictionaries across the Pacific all have names and different words in them unlike ours which are all just called "The Dictionary" and simply have all the words in them.

Cheating Craft

Cheating Craft is one of many Chinese cartoons inexplicably showing up in the Fall 2016 season. And, like everything else made in China, it's a poorly made pile of poo. This Chinese anime epitomizes the Chinese signature design of ripping off something else while making sure it makes no sense. It's like someone over in China saw a battle shonen and decided to try to make their own. If you enjoy building with Legu bricks and eating Laye's potato chips then you'll love Cheating Craft.

Bungo Stray Dogs

Bungo Stray Dogs is all about re-interpretations of famous Japanese authors. So that means you'll be lucky to have heard of any of them. Taking these writers' stories and turning them into superpowers (like an Atsushi Nakajima who turns into a tiger or a Kenji Miyazawa who is Not Defeated By Rain when he's hungry) the show definitely seems to try too hard to be clever. But it can't be too bad since there's this guy with ridiculous sunglasses and scarf holding a lemon. Maybe I need to brush up on my Japanese authors, since I don't remember coming across any lemon-wielding wordsmiths.
