Summer 2018 in Review

Looking back at this season, I am still agreeing with a lot of things I said in my mid-Summer anime commentary. I do think that from a perspective of shows that appeal to me, this season isn’t as strong. If there are a few shows to watch, a season is good. Still, Spring 2018 was…

Summer 2018 Anime at the Half Way Point

I’m just going to be honest here. I have dropped four shows since I’ve written my first impressions. -Holmes of Kyoto was a little too bland, didn’t have enough mystery, and a filler episode of Lupin the Third: Part Five did what this show couldn’t while being engaging. -Chio’s School Road was funny, but an…

Summer 2018 First Reactions

My original plan was to wait until Attack on Titan Season Three premiered before writing this, but I don’t think anything about that show would be a first reaction anymore. A lot like My Hero Academia, I think most people would know whether they are in with the franchise or not by now. I personally…

Spring 2018 in Review Part 1

Hi Everyone. Since most of the shows that I am watching have ended recently and I have some stragglers still hanging around due to breaks, starting late, or having recap episodes in the middle of arcs, I am splitting this list into two parts. This one is going to be significantly longer in the amount…

Heaven’s Feel Part 1 Talk

Hi everyone! Last Thursday, I went to the movie theater to see the first part of Heaven’s Feel (Presage Flower). I know that it was released a while back and was even in theaters way before now, but this is the first chance that I got to watch it. Until recently no theater near me…

Toonami 6/2/18: FLCL Progressive Premiere and Dragon Ball Super

I know, I know. There are a lot of interesting shows airing on toonami recently, but I’ve seen all of those shows. Hunter X Hunter (2014), My Hero Academia, Lupin, and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure are series that I love, but I have already fallen in love with the Japanese voice cast of each of those…

Last Week in Space and Mechs: 6/4/18

After last week’s build up, this week was a bit let down. It started with no new Legend of the Galactic Heroes, but every other series reached a low point if you could call it that. No new episode of Darling in the FranXX either, so there are good sides to that as well. Still…

Spring 2018 Anime at the half way point

The more that I watch things from this season, the more that I like a lot. Out of the shows that I selected to watch this season, I don’t think that any of them are bad. Some of them are a little disappointing, but they are completely watchable, and I don’t feel like dropping them….

Spring 2018 First Impressions

Why are there so many series airing this season? It’s completely unfair for every other season that is going to air shows this year. I won’t say all of them are on that abounding level of awesome that goes beyond some of the shows that aired last season, but there are some that are legitimately…

Winter 2018 in Review

Here we are again, people. Caught in between two anime cycles again. (Or if you are a Babylon 5 fan, in between the tick and tock). Winter 2018 was a solid season, despite the questionable first impressions I had. Even without the shows that carried over from the season before it, there are seriously great…
