Another manga bites the dust:

Sakura Trick is ending on August 16th at eight volumes.  Translators have covered halfway through volume six before giving up on it.  So for us Sakura Trick ended 2.5 volumes ago, but this just puts the nail in the coffin.

There wasn't any plot progress in the manga after the anime ended.  Jokes, new characters, love rivals, but no relationship progress.  It actually felt like the relationships were going backwards and becoming less serious/loving than before.  So I'm not sorry to see Sakura Trick go, it didn't feel like it had anything left to say anyway.  But who knows, maybe in these untranslated volumes things picked up again.  That's why it's so frustrating to only be able to read halfway through a series.

I think it's time to hit the panic button, though.  At this rate there won't be any manga left.

Hell Girl Season 4 is just like the previous Hell Girl seasons, eerily so after all this time.  It's fine for what it is, but the basic premise of the series is so stupid that it's hard to get excited about yet another season.  This is the last series joining the weekly rotation, which currently sits at 23, in this order of anticipation per incoming episode:

1.  Tenshi no 3p
2.  Dragon Ball Super
3.  New Game S2
4.  Fate/Apocrypha
5.  Action Heroine Cheer Fruits
6.  Princess Principal
7.  Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e
8.  Knight's & Magic
9.  Koi to Uso
10.  Sakura Quest
11.  Kyoukai no Rinne S3
12.  Gamers!
13.  Kira Kira Precure a la mode
14.  One Piece
15.  Made in Abyss
16.  Isekai Shokudou
17.  Bolt
18.  Re:creators
19.  Nana Maru San Batsu
20.  Isekai Smartphone
21.  Jigoku Shoujo S4
22.  Ballroom e Yokousou
23.  Shoukoku no Altair
