The spring anime season has taken off to a fantastic start, with a handful of outstanding shows including My Hero Academia, Megalo Box, Hinamatsuri, and several more. Out of the new shows, we saw the return of the eccentric mad Houoin Kyo- I mean, Okabe Rintarou in a heavy-hearted follow-up to Steins;Gate.
