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 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.

Musings and Reflections – Fall 2018 Week 10
