For the longest time, the way I’ve gauged what seasonal shows I will follow is how well they get me to put down my smartphone while watching the show. I generally do this because I don’t have a ton of free time and I want use my time as efficiently as possible.
Ah Fall, it’s the one season of the year where I’m extremely busy due to work commitments. Luckily the new season of anime is here to help me cooldown from my long days at work.
I’m always super anxious at the end of each new anime season. With all the new shows ending, I can’t help but feel guilty that I’ve only been able to finish one or two shows at the end of the season.
The formula is, without a doubt, becoming increasingly stale. Thankfully, the show still has its moments of surprise that keep things interesting.
This summer anime season, I’ve found that I’ve been waiting a couple weeks to catch up on the seasonal anime I’ve been following. I’ve been doing this more often this summer season because either the shows I’m following aren’t good enough to get me to follow them weekly or they’re so good that it’s painful to wait for…
Center stage. The focal point of attention. The top star with top billing. Let the spotlight shine on my (current) anime of the season. Position zero, this is Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight!
Overlord doubles down on the mayhem as the team of Workers are put to the test. Will they survi-ha ha ha. This episode was just plain fun.
There seems to be quite a handful interesting animes airing in the Fall 2018 season. Only Goblin Slayer, the second season of Golden Kamuy, and Radiant really catch my eye. The rest seem pretty lackluster like how many of the animes this summer season feel…
Looking through my archives and document listing the series I have written about, it amazes me that I have yet to write about one of my all time favorite series, FLCL. The 2000 series gave an imaginative spin on puberty for a young man that was nothing short of an artistic piece or an absolute train-wreck, depending…
Overlord’s new arc made the world feel far bigger than before. New kingdom, new characters, and death flags, death flags everywhere!
This is (so far) the hardest review I’ve had to write, not because Banana Fish did anything wrong-in fact, it did many things right-but because of my own shortcomings.
Man, it’s sad to see that there isn’t a ton of people watching Planet With this Summer Anime season. Planet With is my favorite show this season because of how intriguing its world and writing are. Planet With feels like a breath of fresh air because it tries to show me something unique while also trying to present a…
With episode 5, the Carne Village arc closes out not with violent, overpowered spectacle, but with heart.
Even if he has to risk his life for someone he met very recently, Eiji will see things through to the end.
To be blunt, this episode bored me.
The punches, both literally and figuratively, keep coming on Banana Fish.
One of the big successes of this episode was how well it integrated Nazarick’s denizens into the episode’s plot.
Oh jeez it’s been nearly a month since I did one of these… oops.
Here are some more of my impressions of the newest summer animes. If you didn’t catch my first impressions article, you can find it here.
So far, Banana Fish is definitely one of my go-to shows this season.
