Weekly Japanese Pop Culture Thread (August 1st, 2018)

Hello folks! Welcome to this week’s Japanese pop culture thread. This week, we’re spotlighting Asobi Asobase, a slice-of-life comedy manga series about three very stupid high school girls who get into ridiculous shenanigans. An anime series by Studio Lerche based on the manga premiered this season. Don’t be fooled by the pastel colours and soft lines; I’ve been told this is basically KonoSuba minus the RPG trappings. I haven’t started watching it yet, but I did read this character description from Wikipedia:

Maeda (前多)
Voiced by: Ryōtarō Okiayu
Hanako’s family butler. Due to being probed by aliens, he is capable of firing laser beams out of his butt.

I guess I have to watch it now.

What have you been up to lately? Seen anything interesting? Read something cool? Played something mind-blowing? Heard a new song that you’re dying to share? Let us know in the comments!
