Summer 2019 Season
Overall this was pretty disappointing season for me. But I wonder if it was because the season itself was bad or if I made it seem relatively bad by rewatching some older shows which were really fun. Continue reading “Summer 2019 Anime Wrap Up Review and extras”
Gonna be a short one today I suspect. There were only a handful of shows I watched and only a handful of those were actually worth watching.
There was an obvious trend this season of shows having interesting premises and good opening episodes but then falling off a cliff towards the end. Hardly a new thing but for whatever reason there was a higher than normal amount of it amongst the things that I watched. Continue reading “Spring 2019 Anime Wrap Up Review and some extra stuff”
I enjoy how as each season passes I have less and less enthusiasm to write in anything approximating a reasonable timeframe.
As seems to be a recurring theme, a fair chunk of shows in this season had interesting premises or ideas but then ended up kind of dissappointing. So consistently so that it’s not really worth dividing up good/bad among the things I did watch. Continue reading “Winter 2019 Anime Review”
Because I have the pleasure of living interstate from all my family, I am in the incredibly lucky siutation that I can do whatever I want during the Christmas+New Year holiday/”shut down” period. And because I spend 50 weeks of the year working like a madman, this year I decided to spend it doing as little as possible and watching anime. Notably, I decided to test out the AnimeLab platform. Which is fine as far as streaming platforms go. If you want “legit access” to anime I’d put it above crunchyroll.
Anyway I watched/rewatched a bunch of fantastic shows and have some thoughts about them. Some more than others: Continue reading “Extra- Christmas and New Year Backlog!”
I’m only about a month late but whatever. Fall 2018 was a fairly uninspired season- chatting with a friend yesterday I literally couldn’t name a single show I’d watched without referring to my notes. Continue reading “Fall 2018 Anime Round Up”
It felt like I watched very few shows this season, so looking back at what I had apparently watched was quite a surprise. Here’s some thoughts: Continue reading “Summer 2018 Anime Review”
For the weekend of August 14th-15th 2018, I got to go to SMASH– the Sydney Manga and Anime Show. Have been to every one of them since… 2014? 2012? Saw them at the old Sydney Convention Centre, Rosehill Gardens and now Sydney’s new ICC. Well, the Exhibition Centre part of the ICC (as opposed to the Convention Centre which I assume the ‘CC’ part of ICC stands for) Continue reading “SMASH 2018- TL:DR it was fine but 2019 could be great”
Unfortunately, as they more or less say in Jurassic park, life finds a way to get in the way of watching anime.
Specifically, I was away with family no internet for about four months so started the Spring 2018 season super late. That being said, I somehow managed to catch up and finish all the shows worth watching. So here’s some thoughts that definitely follow the same format as my other wrap ups: Continue reading “Spring 2018 Anime wrap up”
What a season. So many shows that I’ve watched with one eye while writing emails and doing other admin paperwork. Thank *deity* that I’ve been pretty sick the last week and thus at reduced mental capacity and able to tolerate some of the shows I persisted in watch.
Here’s my category by category breakdown. Definitely the same categories I used for previous seasons. Continue reading “Winter 2017/2018 wrap up”
The Winter 2017/2018 anime season is half done so it’s worth doing a stocktake on where things are at. I was planning to do this at the 3 episode mark but found that literally half the shows were still ‘Maybe worth watching’.
