Another season is done and dusted and I’m really not sure how I feel about it. Maybe it’s just the ongoing COVID pandemic upsetting subconscious emotions (although we’re doing pretty well in Australia compared to other places) but this season felt weirdly unsatisfying. Not that things were bad but that things were really incomplete. And I found way more interest in several random shows I picked up apropos of nothing.Continue reading “Autumn 2020 season review.”
Summer 2020 Review and COVID Recap pt3
Another season done and the endless pandemic makes the concept of time increasinly less relevant and hard to follow. Would be nice if there was more great stuff to watch.Continue reading “Summer 2020 Review and COVID Recap pt3”
Winter 2020 Season Review and General Round Up
I feel that every anime season I say “this was a pretty bad season” or, at best, “this was a mediocre season” but this season seems to have been particularly disappointing.
For the first time since I started watching seasonal anime (circa 2013?) there isn’t a single show that I picked up from the season and then enjoyed watching all the way through. The handful of shows I’m still watching are either sequels (and even then I’ve dropped some sequels) or are shows I’m watching as a joke (because they are bad). Like normally I don’t start writing these reviews until three weeks after the season has finished. But I’m starting this one nearly two weeks before the next season starts. Madness. In particular I’m shocked at how many shows I got more than halfway through and then just stopped watching. Continue reading “Winter 2020 Season Review and General Round Up”
Spring 2019 Anime Wrap Up Review and some extra stuff
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”
Winter 2019 Anime Review
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”
Summer 2018 Anime Review
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”

MadFest 2017 Bonus- Film Screenings wrap up/review
So I went to MadFest. It was ok (if I’m being generous).
But concurrently there was a series of five films being screened which was on paper part of the event but in practicality was effectively a separate event. Which I had to pay for so I have some skin in this being worthwhile this time XD. Continue reading “MadFest 2017 Bonus- Film Screenings wrap up/review”
