Here we are, the year that started the blog and had me watching more anime than ever before. Also the year with two of my favourite anime ever that both aired in the same season (yeah, I cheated on my own rules for 2016 but it was so worth it). Be sure to give a shout out to your favourite anime of the year that was 2016.
The Morose Mononokean season 2 episode 11 review is over on Irina's blog today. Be sure to go check it out for cute one legged birds with ear wings.
While we aren't quite half-way through the Winter anime season, I'm just taking a moment to take stock, look at my watch list, and I'm trying to predict which of the shows I'm watching will actually hold out until the end of the season to be my favourite. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you are watching, what you've dropped, what you think will be anime of the season, and what you think is going to fall apart.
The Morose Mononokean is back and Irina and I have decided to come together to cover this season. Check out our first post over on Irina's blog: The Morose Mononokean Season Episode 1 Review.

Continuing on from last week where I looked at my top 5 favourite female yokai, this week we have my top 5 male yokai. I must admit, my first draft had a lot fox yokai on the list and even the revised version hasn't really fixed that issue. Apparently I like foxes. Anyway, as always, … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Yokai
Having covered some of the best from 2016 I kind of felt I should look at the shows that weren't necessarily bad but ended up being disappointing before I move on to non-2016 specific lists. Actually, this was probably the hardest list to write because there were just so many shows that had so much … Continue reading Tuesdays Top 5: Disappointments from 2016
Overview: Ashiya Hanae picks up what he thinks is a bag on the side of the road, however it turns out to be a yokai who becomes attached to him (quite literally for awhile). Desperate to be free of it, Ashiya turns to an exorcist (who turns out to be a class mate). Now, Ashiya … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Series Review
Review: The episode is called 'The End' and while it certainly ended the crisis with Ashiya's vision it didn't really offer any other insight or resolution. That and they kind of just gathered every character together and used their emotions to solve the problem. Really? Anyway, the final episode ends much the way the show … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 13
Review: For the first time this series has decided to actually take a problem seriously and drag it out. While it almost seems certain that everything will be fine by the end of next episode, it was nice to see the characters we've met over the season rallying to solve Ashiya's problem. And Fuzzy clinging … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 12
Review: I feel this episode would have had far more impact if my internet connection hadn't continuously dropped while trying to watch it. As a result, I saw the episode in 2 - 5 minute blocks with a lot of frustrated waiting and reloading in between. The episode picks up from last episode and we … Continue reading The Morose Mononokean Episode 11
