Houzuki no Reitetsu

There are also the usual Gintama, Pokemon, Naruto, PreCure, et cetera.


So what am I watching these days? I’m down to three current series. The superhero spoof One Punch Man is unexpectedly good. Osumatsu-san, an update of a gag anime from the black & white era, is sometimes very funny. It’s also sometimes gross or dumb, and I hesitate to recommend it. And there’s Calvin & Hobbes Ushio and Tora, which is everything a throwback shounen anime should be.
