Musings and Reflections – Winter 2019 Week 4

     I guess this one goes just for the record. Being a whole week late with episode reviews makes them pretty useless. I guess reading (and not watching) Boogiepop and somehow getting tangled into rewatching both Cowboy Bebop and Black Lagoon stole a lot of time…

One phrase impressions

Boogiepop wa Warawanai – I guess I warmed up a bit.
Sword Art Online: Alicization
– Alice shows some class.
Dororo –  Underdeveloped, but fine, really.

Musings and Reflections – Winter 2019 Week 1

One phrase impressions

Boogiepop wa Warawanai (Ep. 1) – Underwhelming to say the least.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai (Ep. 2) – The story sort of kicks in but also sort of doesn’t..
Sword Art Online: Alicization – Ugh, exposition upon exposition…
Dororo –  MAPPA knows how to deal with historical anime, apparently

Musings and Reflections – Winter 2019 Week 0

     A new year, a new season, a new hope. The last winter proved to be incredibly rich with a number of great shows that could be enough for the entirety of a pretty decent year. This time I’m not as optimistic, but the selection is still varied enough (even with the heap of second seasons and stuff). I guess I’ll be rather cautious this time but at least one show should be definitely good. I hope.

Musings and Reflections – end of 2018

     Yeah, the final post of the year, no matter that it’s already 2019. It’s hard to remember all the things that happened during the last 12 months but it seems like the year was eventful enough, with all the appropriate ups and downs. For example, finally getting your driver’s licence doesn’t happen that often (I hope), nor taking a break from reading posts (I also hope that). As with some previous years, I took a look in MAL and what do you think – 14 anime of 2018 now have a place in Top 100. In 2016 the number was 16, and in 2017 – 15. It would be fun to make a probabilistic prediction until when Cowboy Bebop will remain in the list. I guess there’s still some time until the list is completely changed, since after two years there’s only 9 2016 anime left. Still too much for my liking though. The multitude of Gintamas doesn’t deserve so many high places, at least in my book.
