The spring season is upon us! Maybe my expectations are low, but it’s been a fun start so far. We’ve had controversy (my quota for reading the word “rotoscoping” has been filled for a decade), insanity (Valvrave throwing out every ridiculous twist under the sun), comedy, drama, tons of sequels and even the world’s first time capsule anime (Sparrow’s Hotel was clearly buried in 1993 and unearthed 20 years later). Are there any standouts among the pack? Do the best look extra good because they’re surrounded by mediocrity? Or are there some true gems gleaming in the rough?
