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.

Musings and Reflections – end of Fall 2018

     Yeah, not much to talk about this Fall season. At least for someone who has been not the most active person around. Yeah, other stuff occupied me quite a bit, and episode reviews (and even them late) definitely weren’t of the highest class. Deliberately wrong choices during the start of the season (yeah, I’m a completionist) didn’t make the situation better, so I was stuck with shows I didn’t really care about much. Well, got only myself to blame. Anyway, these several holiday days were a relief, both from other stuff and from not watching likable enough anime. I’m sure I’ve missed not a single good show, but so far I think only Zombieland Saga and Bloom into You might be something I think could be interesting. But let’s return to stuff I did watch. And by the way, Attack on Titan ended during this season, but 2 episodes isn’t anything to write about, especially since the general quality remained the same as earlier. But enough of that.
