The short version: all of them are out.
I’m putting all three of these series on blogging hold, though I’ll be keeping an eye on them at least for a while. Amnesia is just a little too slow, a little too ensnared in the VN format and a little too preposterous for me. Tamako Market, as much as I gave it a chance to prove otherwise, is pretty much a Cute Girls Being Cute show with no desire to be anything more. Not an especially egregious version of one, but one nonetheless. And MMY can’t seem to decide whether it wants to be taken seriously as a commentary on social development or just be a silly fanservice series, and can’t quite pull off either.
It sucks not to be able to blog shows that have obvious broad appeal to the readership – two of them, anyway – but unless something changes quite significantly with any of these series I’d be faking it if I kept covering them. All these being equal I’d pick a show that most of the blog’s followers are watching over one they’re not, but this is not one of those equal cases. I’m disappointed because each of these series has elements that I like, and a résumé that makes me want to be a fan – KyoAni shows are always rife with possibility, Brains Base is my favorite studio at the moment and I had especially high hopes for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. As the sign says, “It is what it is”…
