Catching up with anime
The end is on the horizon for the summer anime season, and that is evident in some of the current series. Here's a recap of this week's new anime episodes.
Alderamin on the Sky Episode 8
Anime News Network said, "Overall, the series seems to be on an upward trend." Read more.
Amanchu! Episode 7
The Fandom Post said, "This is, by far, the most slice-of-life episode of Amanchu yet. I enjoy watching the students and their antics from the viewpoint of their teacher, for once. Mato-sensei is the sort of teacher you wish you could’ve had in school, one who understands exactly what her student’s needs are and is willing to put in the time for them. She also makes me wonder what her life outside of teaching is like. Although, that sort of goes for all of these characters, we’ve seen very little of their lives outside of school. I hope the show touches upon that at some point." Read more.
Bananya Episode 8
The Fandom Post said, "The small expansions on the world have been interesting as I’ve wanted to see how others react to Bananya and his family, but it’s still something that just feels a little weird. The stray cat outside wanting to get in is an amusing kind of danger that’s introduced here that has its moments but feels a little incomplete, like they weren’t sure what to do with it and just padded it out instead. It has its cute moments with Bananya enjoying the warmth of the sun but there’s little to really get in sync with beyond that." Read more.
Battery the Animation Episode 7
Anime News Network said, "The show continues to progress at its usual mild pace." Read more.
Cheer Boys!! Episode 7

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School: Future Arc Episode 7
Anime News Network said, "Even with a one-episode vacation from the main plot, Danganronpa 3 has me on the edge of my seat." Read more.
Dragon Crisis Episode 7
The Fandom Post said, "The truth behind Ai and her master is revealed just as Rose arrives to add a little dragon love to it all." Read more.
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Episode 21

Mob Psycho 100 Episode 7
The Fandom Post said, "In a world full of spirits and the supernatural, the only ones who can deal with them are those with powers known as psychics. Self-proclaimed psychic Reigen Arataka operates as an exorcist for a living but in reality, possesses no powers at all." Read more.
Naruto: Shippuden Episode 473
The Fandom Post said, "Chakra — whose energy connects this world to those beyond — allows Obito to leave Rin’s side for a moment and appear in Kakashi’s inner psyche. Obito gives him his Magekyo Sharingan and leaves with a parting wish that Kakashi become the Sixth Hokage." Read more.

Sweetness and Lightning Episode 8
Anime News Network said, "The idea of embracing something from the past while putting your own spin on it really suits this show." Read more.
Taboo Tattoo Episode 8
Anime News Network said, "The show hasn't lost the plot so much as it's buried the plot in the backyard, hoping that it can make enough noise and spectacle to distract people from the suspicious odor of a decomposing narrative." Read more.
