Summer 2016 Week 13

This is my last overview for Summer 2016. I know some shows still haven't finished but next week I'll be posting my first thoughts on the Autumn season shows as they start rolling out (though from the looks of Crunchyroll and AnimeLab I may be a little short of shows this season - I say … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 13

Summer 2016 Week 12

So here we are in the last weeks of the summer anime season. Some shows will be wrapping and others still have a week or two to go. That said, I am starting to check out the upcoming shows to see what I'll be following in the Autumn Season (it is still weird reversing the … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 12

Summer 2016 Week 11

Week 11 and it is the home stretch. After last week's rather ho-hum performance from so many shows, it seems like some of them were just saving up for this week. Other shows are taking the interesting approach (though one that is common in the anime world) of continuing to derail as the end draws … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 11

Summer 2016 Week 10

Are you excited for the end of the season? So I know Days is continuing on, haven't heard about the others but most things should start wrapping up soon. Let's see what they can deliver in their final episodes. Meanwhile, most of the shows I've been enjoying throughout this season delivered okay but not awesome … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 10

Summer 2016 Week 9

Here we are in week 9. This week has been a real mixed bag with some shows dropping the ball entirely (or tossing it away) while other shows have really gone forward full steam ahead. I'm starting to look now to see what is ending in a few weeks and what is continuing but there … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 9

Summer 2016 Week 8

Here's week 8. Wow, I can't believe how fast this season is flashing by. It really feels like it was just yesterday when I was trying out the first episode of so many anime and having to decide what to drop and what to follow. I can't say I made the best choice in holding … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 8

Summer 2016 Week 7

Week 7 is always a bit hit and miss. Some shows go into serious filler mode while others start barreling into a climax whether they are ready for it or not. There are the rare few shows that actually manage to make a good showing though (D Gray Man Hallow is just going from strength … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 7

Summer 2016 Week 6

Step right up, we've made it to week 6 of the Summer anime season. I'm going to be honest and point out that a number of the anime I'm following did not really amaze me this week. We're at that point where they are consolidating points and characters rather than impressing the audience. That said, … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 6

Summer 2016 Week 5

Yay! We've made it to week 5. Our shows are hitting that mid-way point that always begins to show which ones are not built on a solid foundation as flashy opening sequences fade away and actual characterisation and plot take hold. There definitely hasn't been much movement on my list this week. Before I get … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 5

Summer 2016 Week 4

It's the end of week 4. This is kind of a tipping point because usually I won't drop a show if I've gotten this far into it (that isn't to say I won't drop a show after this, but the likelihood is that I'll just keep watching it and wondering why I didn't drop it). … Continue reading Summer 2016 Week 4
