Winter 2018 Week 11

Week 11 has come and gone and left in its wake some bitter feelings (Kokkoku) and some more promising moments (DamePri). That said, some shows maintain their solid quality (March Comes in Like a Lion) whereas other titles maintain their general lack of anything all that praise worthy (Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody). … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 11

Winter 2018 Week 9

Another week gone and we're closing in on the final leg of the Winter Anime season, which means next week I need to actually start the poll for favourite show of the season.

Winter 2018 Week 8

And week 8 draws to a close with the weaker shows crumbling under their own weaknesses and the stronger shows consolidating what they do well. Yes, we are turning into the final part of the season and while some shows will continue on, many of these will soon be wrapping up. Which leads me to … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 8

Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Characters with Green Hair

Today I am taking a look at the lovely green haired ladies of anime and I will admit this ended up being harder than expected.  While there was no doubt who was going to top my list, the other characters proved a little harder to split. Basically I was looking for interesting female characters where … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Female Characters with Green Hair

Winter 2018 Week 7

Week 7 is an odd week for anime seasons. It is usually at this point that I experience buyer's remorse (or rather, watcher's remorse) when I think about the titles I might have picked up and some of the ones I did keep on my watch list that maybe I should have let go. That … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 7

Winter 2018 Week 6

Welcome to week 6 where we start getting serious about whether or not I made wise choices earlier in the season with what to watch and what to drop. The answer, as it is most seasons, is a little bit of both. Some shows have far exceeded expectations while others are just kind of plodding … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 6

Winter 2018 Week 5

Week 5 and I suffered from hearing the news that March Comes in Like a Lion is apparently not airing while the Winter Olympics are on. That is not good news. However, otherwise the season seems to be rolling along more or less as expected. Curious this week as to who is shaping up to be … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 5

Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Interesting Anime in 2017

The final top 5 of 2017 list and this week I am focusing on those shows that I just found interesting to look at for whatever reason. Maybe they were pretty or set somewhere interesting, or maybe they were just plain bizarre, but they are shows that when I think about them I remember the … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Visually Interesting Anime in 2017
