Musings and Reflections – Fall 2018 Week 0

     A few days lately have been rather hectic and then I wanted to restart my brain so eventually it go to this point that the first week of the Fall season is already over and I haven’t even written a post about what shows I’ll watch, let alone started watching them. I probably should’ve resisted the temptation to finish all the 7 volumes of Hone ga Kusaru made. A pretty good manga, but still. Well, the season for me seems likely to be rather tiresome, at least in real life. Of course I’ll try to be consistent but oh well, time is limited and when new responsibilities arise, something must be sacrificed. Anyway. Once I started to hunt for the likely shows, initially I thought that there’s nothing good. Then I found some PVs, some staff lists, and it turned out that the season is clogged with shows that do have potential and I’d actually gladly watch them. Only the thing is that there’re also shows that are sequels or continuations and they are plenty. Eventually I found that of the my must-watch shows there’s only one that’s completely new. Well, at least there’s always a possibility to catch up with something that turns out to be good later on, and there are some clear candidates for that. Anyway.

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.
