I really should learn to play by my own rules. After abandoning Trigger's SSSS.Dynazenon by the end of episode 1 and not even making it through the introduction of Combatants Will Be Dispatched I was a little worried that I wouldn't make it to episode 3 of enough anime to continue this post format. Well, I was saved from abandoning Watch or Drop by The Saint's Magic Power is Omnipotent, though I didn't quite remember to stop at the end of episode 3 and snuck in an episode 4.

It was inevitable that on the back of two packed episodes we'd move to one that certainly had a lot happening but with the focus shifting to characters I'm less invested in, my overall response to this is a little less enthused (certainly less tears). Read the full episode review and share your thoughts on the episode.

Fruits Basket continues to do what it does best which is make me cry and then laugh and then cry while still smiling and then leaving me wanting more even if I am an emotional wreck at the end of the episode. This final season is shaping up to be something very special. Read the full episode review and let me know what you thought of the episode.
Having an early release of just one episode is actually kind of mean. I really wanted more Fruits Basket but I knew that this was just a one off and I was going to have to wait for April for more and yet when it popped up on AnimeLab I couldn't help but press play. So, how does the final season begin?
I had the joy of reviewing this one each week with Irina and I know that it was a definite highlight of the Summer anime season. Given is a low key boys love anime with two adorable dorks at its centre.
If you've followed my blog long you'll know I absolutely adored the 2019 series of Given and asked for more. Well, they've delivered a 59 minute movie follow up. While not quite a second season, this is one follow up I didn't intend to miss.
I went into season 2 of Fruits Basket being warned not to set my expectations too high. That was probably a good thing but to be honest there's a lot to love in this follow up season that the original anime series never got.
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.
