A Decade of Anime – 2018

Here we are at 2018 and it honestly feels fairly recent. These anime have had less opportunities to be rewatched but I still have a great list of titles to choose from for my favourite from the year. Be sure to share your favourites.

Run With The Wind Series Review

They'll take your emotions for a run. For those who followed my episodic reviews you will already know it took me awhile to get into this series. The opening episodes, while there were some really pretty animations, didn't really grab me as we set up a fairly standard team sport anime. We had Haiji, the … Continue reading Run With The Wind Series Review

2019 Winter Anime End Of The Season

Now that the Winter season is mostly over, this is where the anime ended up on my list. The Reader's Poll results will be announced later today.

The Final Wind

Run With The Wind Episode Review Title

Run With The Wind Episode 23 - The end has come and while it is sad to see this anime leave my watch list it is one of the rare few anime that seemed to realise exactly how many episodes it had to tell its story and it used them well. Not outstaying its welcome, this one has finished where it needs to.

Run With The Wind Episode Review Title

Run With The Wind Episode 21 Review - While not as powerful as episode 20, episode 21 delivers what we've come to expect and that is a consistently good story with some fairly impressive character work.

Run With The Wind Episode Review Title

Run With The Wind Episode 19 Review - I'm seriously loving how they've built up this team over the series because we're in the event, and despite having zero interest in running, I just watched three guys run one after the other for twenty minutes without looking away (except when I had to pause it because I was crying and couldn't read the subs). Yeah, Run With The Wind is good.

May The Wind Be At Their Backs

Run With The Wind Episode Review Title

Run With The Wind Episode 18 - So much happened this episode and yet somehow it didn't feel rushed over. It felt like everything happened exactly as it needed to in order to bring us to the starting line. Though of course, they can't let us finish without a little bit more drama.
