Another season in anime has begun. It is odd that I am starting to get used to writing about Winter in the middle of Summer and at times I forget it isn’t actually Winter but just the Winter anime season. Still, a few changes for Winter 2018. Firstly, my overview post will now come out Saturday morning instead of Sunday night. Basically nothing I watched over the weekend ever made it onto the list anyway and had to wait for the next week and as the majority of the shows I end up watching air over the weekend it just kind of makes sense to make Saturday the first day of my week and do the weekly wrap up then. Okay, I’ll probably move it again next season but we’ll try it here.
The other change for Winter that I’ve previously announced is that one of the shows airing will end up being reviewed for patrons only. Once I know what I have access to patrons will get a change to vote for the show they want and after episode three all future posts about that show will be password protected. The show will still appear on the list here but even the full series review when it is done will only be available to patrons. While I am committed to keeping the majority of my content available for all, I do want my patrons to feel they are getting something back for the support they are offering me as I continue to work towards making blogging more than just a hobby. Insert shameless self promotion here where I ask you to consider becoming a patron and supporting this site if you enjoy my content.
Right, with that out of the way onto the Winter 2018 season. Not much is out yet (understatement) but as shows become available I’ll be giving them a go. By week three I will have my final watch list (but I will probably end up changing it).
March Comes in Like a Lion Season 2 (Continuing)
The Ancient Magus’ Bride (Continuing)
Okay, I Guess
A Place Further Than The Universe (Episode 1)
This one might be really good but I kind of suspect I’m going to get bored with it fairly quickly so I may end up dropping it. I’ll give it another episode or two before I decide. Still, it is pretty charming so far even if it isn’t really the kind of thing that appeals to me.
Laid-Back Camp (Episode 1)
This is a good candidate to be moved to tried and dropped if anything else comes out. While I enjoyed the characters in this enough and there was nothing wrong with the episode, I just didn’t find it particularly interesting either.
Ms Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles (Episode 1)
I’m probably going to move this to the tried and dropped once anything else comes out. This first episode is fine if you are okay with the repeated gag of girl getting rejected in her friendship attempts and then watching girls slurp ramen. There may be some appeal I was missing but basically I was bored while watching this one. Otherwise, it is functional enough as a first episode.
