Spiritpact is another one of those Chinese cartoons pretending to be an anime. It doesn't make any sense and it's overall pretty bad. I put more effort into this post than the studio put into the show.

Rilu Rilu Fairilu a lesson for children in the follies of totalitarianism? Or is it trying to brainwash kids into finding it acceptable? The entire concept of the show is about the working class fairilus being kept under close watch by their all-powerful, all-seeing godking Gaul. The main character dares to defy her mental conditioning and oftentimes attempts to escape into the human world. But the godking keeps preventing her, telling her how great Little Fairilu is. So it's hard to say which way the show is leaning. Will Lip be able to achieve her dream of mating with a human? Or will the all powerful Gaul prevent her escape?

Kemono Friends was originally developed by fifth-grader Tatsuki Shigenori using a Playstation 2 for a school biology presentation about different animals and their habitat around the globe. However, due to a DVD mix-up, Father Shigenori accidentally brought the project into his work at the Tokyo Broadcasting System and broadcast Kemono Friends all over Japan. Rather than admitting the mistake, TBS quickly hired the twelve-year-old Tatsuki and his two classmates to animate, write, direct, and voice-act eleven more episodes of Kemono Friends.

March comes in like a lion but out like a lamb. Completely unlike this lamb of a show. You know what's even more boring than shogi? A show about shogi. Main character Rei Kiriyama is sad about stuff. So he spends the entire show moping about. When he's not moping, he plays shogi. He's a professional shogi player. That's apparently a real thing.

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 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.

Usakame. The show follows four girls who attend Usakame, a rival school of Teekyu gals. The TQ girls (including our favorite alpaca-lover Marimo "Panty Eater" Bando) make a cameo appearance for a practice match against the RabbitTurtles. After all, they need to stay in fighting condition for the next season of Teekyu (which we all hope is soon!).
