Ok, so first and foremost, I don’t know what is going on with KonoSuba Season 3. Episode 2 of Season 3 also got leaked and as far as I know, there is no change in the official release date of the series. Yes, I have seen it already but I will avoid talking about it just to avoid trouble. So putting that aside for now, we can talk about the animes that actually came out in the first week of the spring 2024 season.

And, I have to say, I think we’re off to a great start already. This is just the first week. We still haven’t gotten into the meat and bones of the season. Now, I already made individual articles discussing a few anime on this list. So you can go check those out if you want a more detailed review of the episode. There is one anime that I didn’t talk about in a dedicated article but episode 1 still blew me away. I am talking about Go Go Loser Ranger. I am saving my first impressions article for it for next week. But man, the first episode was good.

So let’s talk about that and a whole bunch of other first episodes that came out this week. This is the first week and the official beginning of the Spring 2024 season of anime. And here are my favorite episodes from this week! Let’s get started!

The Irregular At Magic High School Season 3 Episode 1

I love the fact that this episode opened with a narration from Miyuki. In my opinion, Miyuki is one of Saori Hayami’s best performances. She is Miyuki and it is hard to imagine anyone else voicing her other than Saori Hayami. So anyway, a narration from her opening the episode immediately reminds you of what the series is like and pulls you back in. Now yes, I did have my issues with this episode as I talked about in my dedicated episode 1 review.

But I still think that the episode was enjoyable. I like how the episode spent time exploring everything that has changed after Season 2. We also have a whole bunch of new characters because of the new admissions in the school. And a few of them already seem interesting. The most interesting scene of the episode has to be the last scene though. Of course, it is meant to tease the upcoming events but I am still curious as to what exactly it means. Oh and lastly, the new opening theme is also a banger. This show simply doesn’t miss when it comes to opening themes.

Spice and Wolf Remake Episode 1

To be honest, this episode turned out to be much better than anything I expected. Now sure, I like Holo’s old design more but I still do think that this episode was great. It singlehandedly made me more optimistic about the remake overall. The structure of the episode was quite different from the original episode 1 and I think it does a few things better than the original episode 1 as well.

Right off the bat, the episode opens with a rather spoiler-y scene, which I won’t elaborate on even though I know what it is. In my opinion, it was a good foreshadowing and served as fan service to people who know about it. Aside from that, I that the remake explores the culture of the village more and Holo’s reasons for wanting to leave the village are also clearer in the remake. Regardless, it was a great episode, different from the original, and yet still had the same strengths. And frankly, that is all I want from the remake.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Episode 1

One of my most anticipated anime of the spring 2024 season. And sure enough, the first episode was pretty damn good. I like how we open with the immediate aftermath of Season 2 and Rimuru’s fight with Clayman. I wish we learned a bit more about the other Demon Lords in that scene but the scene itself was still pretty good so I don’t mind it that much.

And then later on we switch to Diablo’s perspective and see how he has been handling things in the Falmuth Kingdom. And boy is he brutal. I love how Youm and the others were scared af of his aura whenever someone badmouthed Rimuru. That was funny. And then he shows how cunning he is in dealing with the nobles. I am curious to see how things in the Falmuth Kingdom go after Diblo’s ultimatum… I am sorry, I meant “peace treaty”. Entertaining episode as we’ve come to expect from TenSura.

Go Go Loser Ranger Episode 1

I was looking forward to this anime but man, I didn’t expect it to be this good. Right from the first shot, the animations blew me away. Watching the trailers is one thing but it really makes me happy when animes manage to keep the same animation quality for the actual release. That is not all though. This episode does a perfect job of establishing the current status quo of the world. And since the anime is pretty much Power Rangers, it also comes with a similar amount of cheese in certain scenes.

And I think things like that add to the charm of this anime. So what if the Power Rangers were corporatized and used their fights as a “show” to entertain the public and make money? Well, you’d get this anime. Again, as I mentioned, this anime does an amazing job of establishing the current state of the world, and the MC’s motivation stems from the current state of things which is even more important. A good plot supports good characters and vice versa.

Lastly, I am curious if Suzukiri knows about D’s true intentions or not. I feel like I am going to love this anime hehe.

That is all for now!

This was an amazing week overall. We had the awesome Wrestlemania 40 Night 1 yesterday, I am writing this article only a few hours away from Night 2. And then kicking off next week we will have legendary Raw after Mania. And it is not just wrestling, we have some awesome anime coming out next week as well and as I just showed, this week was filled with awesome first episodes as well. What a great start to April and the Spring 2024 season in general. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
