Watch or Drop? Is Blue Period Worth Watching?

Watch or Drop Blue Period

With two episodes available on Netflix I decided to check out Blue Period. While I'm not huge on slice-of-life anime, I'd read some positive reviews around the first episode and was interested. But is Blue Period worth watching?

Days Episode Thoughts – A Viewer’s Journey In Watching A Non-Athlete Learn Soccer

Days Episodic Thoughts

Days is pretty much the story of two characters playing soccer together. One is supremely talented and the other has never played before and isn't all that fit. That said, apparently all it takes is heart and effort because this is a feel good kind of story. Here are my Days Episode thoughts.

Cheer Boys!! From Beginning To End – A Viewer’s Journey Into Male Cheerleading

Cheer Boys Episode Thoughts

Cheer Boys!! or Cheer Danshi!! with its multiple exclamation points for no reason (I'm guessing it is just really excited about its content) is an anime series released in 2016 based on a novel about a group of college boys who decide for various reasons to start a cheerleading team.

Watch or Drop? Horimiya Anime

Watch or Drop Horimiya

With the Winter 2021 Anime Season passing the half-way mark I decided it was time to start checking out what was on offer and planning which shows I was going to watch and review at the end of the season. While it isn't the best way to select anime, I decided to go with the 3 episode test before determining whether an anime was being added to my watch list or dropped for good. This method isn't being used for sequels given I'm largely just deciding whether I'll watch them based on whether I liked the previous series (so Attack on Titan: Final Season is going to be reviewed but I won't be doing a taste test). Today I'm giving my first impressions of Horimiya.
