Musings and Reflections – Summer 2018 Week 4

     Yeah, I’m a week late. Long story short, there have been some semi-avoidable troubles with the Internet but everything’s back to normal so just for the record before I jump right into catching up with week 5, here’s week 4.

Shingeki no Kyojin 3 – Shouting: the Anime is back!
Hanebado! – Sports anime starts being about sports.
Yama no Susume 3 – Weird, as there’s only school stuff.
Banana Fish – Prisons are awfully uninviting places.

Musings and Reflections – end of Spring 2018

     A bit late but oh well – that happens sometimes. On the other hand, it might be a good idea to be late since it provides possibility to extend the period of time certain shows are talked about and remembered. Recently I watched the OVA of Violet Evergarden. It was pretty good but will it resurrect any interest about the show? Probably not. And Violet Evergarden deserves at least that. Anyway, that was Winter, and this is a post about Spring. The mention of Violet Evergarden also has another point because it as well as some other Winter shows were more enjoyable than the majority of what Spring had to offer. Weird. But I guess it happens. Similarly to the last season this time I also picked up several shows that weren’t initially on my radar, so I think I watched pretty much everything that could interest me (except maybe Megalo Box) or be pretty good and non-sequel. Still, I doubt that many of these shows will be remembered after a even a month or so. But let’s get going.

Musings and Reflections – Summer 2018 Week 0

     This Winter was exceptionally good – I (and probably many others) had plenty of enjoyment watching Violet Evergarden, Sora yori mo Tooi Basho, Yuru Camp and, very unexpectedly, Koi wa Ameagari No You ni. Apparently, the year had pretty much exhausted its potential as during Spring the only memorable show for me has been Hisone to Masotan, and even it had enough problems not to be among my absolute favorites this year. What does Summer bring? Apparently, not that much, but also not so little. I guess quality-wise it’ll be somewhere between Winter and Spring – there’re some interesting upcoming shows, but, as always, there’s also enough generic stuff. Well, at least the sheer amount of possibilities grant that for anyone there should be at least one likable enough show. I hope. So, what will I watch?
