Musings and Reflections – end of Summer 2018

     If there was a poll about the length of the summer  – the anime season as well as in general – how many people would say that it was kinda short? One of them clearly would be me. Of course, summer holiday is a always something pleasant, and pleasant things never seem to last long enough. I remember a joke about how to explain the relativity of time to basically anyone – “Do you think that 5 mins sitting on a chair and sitting on a stove last as much?”. Dumb jokes aside, I guess I’m more or less satisfied with the shows I watched. None of them were truly stellar, though Hanebado started very strong and the second episode of Attack on Titan was simply magnificent. On the other hand, there were no huge disappointments either. Out of everything I missed, I think about maybe checking a pair of oddballs – Planet With and Revue Starlight. Cells at Work looks like a show that gets repetitive quite soon but it also might get a chance. Everything else doesn’t look that important or relevant to me.
