Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Four

This Week: Barakamon, Free! – Eternal Summer, Mobile Suit Gundam-san, Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!, Space☆Dandy Season Two, and Tokyo ESP.

A straggler from my summer season list managed to find their way to the house party this past week (the barely cognizant M3: The Dark Metal notwithstanding), so let’s check in and see how (or if) everyone is enjoying themselves.
