Winter 2018 Week 10

Another week of the anime season passes us by and we're now close to the end. Earlier today I opened the polls for best and worst of the season. If you missed it, be sure to check them out and to vote for your favourite and least favourite shows of the season. In the meantime … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 10


The Best and Worst Anime of Winter 2018 – Have Your Say

It's that time of the anime season again. From now until the 31st of March you can vote for your favourite, and least favourite, anime of the season. You can choose up to three series in both the best of and worst of the season polls. Remember, the three best shows (as voted by the … Continue reading The Best and Worst Anime of Winter 2018 – Have Your Say

Winter 2018 Week 9

Another week gone and we're closing in on the final leg of the Winter Anime season, which means next week I need to actually start the poll for favourite show of the season. I'm pretty sure I know what is going to win, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't on my watch list, but that's … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 9

Winter 2018 Week 8

And week 8 draws to a close with the weaker shows crumbling under their own weaknesses and the stronger shows consolidating what they do well. Yes, we are turning into the final part of the season and while some shows will continue on, many of these will soon be wrapping up. Which leads me to … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 8

Winter 2018 Week 7

Week 7 is an odd week for anime seasons. It is usually at this point that I experience buyer's remorse (or rather, watcher's remorse) when I think about the titles I might have picked up and some of the ones I did keep on my watch list that maybe I should have let go. That … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 7

Winter 2018 Week 6

Welcome to week 6 where we start getting serious about whether or not I made wise choices earlier in the season with what to watch and what to drop. The answer, as it is most seasons, is a little bit of both. Some shows have far exceeded expectations while others are just kind of plodding … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 6

Winter 2018 Week 5

Week 5 and I suffered from hearing the news that March Comes in Like a Lion is apparently not airing while the Winter Olympics are on. That is not good news. However, otherwise the season seems to be rolling along more or less as expected. Curious this week as to who is shaping up to be … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 5

Winter 2018 Week 4

We are now at the end of week 4 which for some shows means the first third has already passed. This has been an interesting season in that I've tried quite a range of shows. Ultimately, a lot haven't really worked out for me but there are still enough shows holding my interest. Besides, March … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 4

Winter 2018 Week 3

Week 3 and it is crunch time. For some shows I'm almost at that crucial point where I decide whether I am going to stick out the season or whether I try and cut my losses and there's a couple where that is a tempting proposition (too tempting in the case of Hakyuu Houshin Engi which … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 3

Winter 2018 Week 2

Week 2 and I am getting closer to a finalised watch list. There were a number of shows that I thought I'd give them a second episode and then I didn't really want to watch a second episode. While these might get another look later in the season, for now they are on hold and … Continue reading Winter 2018 Week 2
