This took out a bit longer to get out than I expected it to, but oh well. This season is a bit weaker than last, and I’m starting with about as many shows as I ended with last season. It’s a season much more oriented towards comedy and SoL, but after last season’s much more drama-focused and cerebral anime, I’m happy to have a lighter season. Aside from that, I’m working towards getting out my next Why I Love It post out by the end of the month, and hopefully a few other posts as well. Without further ado:
Not much to say. Got that Monogatari post out which makes me feel accomplished. Top 10 of the year coming out either on the 31st or 1st. These posts are continuing into the new year, but it might be weird since there’ll be a bit of a break before the winter shows start, but I’ll figure something out. Enjoy.
This post is a bit later than usual, mostly due to my penchant for falling behind on weekly anime, but it’s finally done. In addition, my post on Monogatari is finally done and typed up, and only needs a pass or two more alongside image additions to be published at long last. I took way too long on it, to the point that I just didn’t care about it for a few weeks, but I’m very happy to have it close to completion. Now I just have to work on a Simoun essay and 2016 top anime list. The only rest I get is due to procrastination it seems.
The year’s really rounding out now, and it’s going strong. I’ve put on hold or dropped nearly two-thirds of what I started this season, but what I’m left with is very solid, and I’ll still enjoy many I go back to. I remain convinced that this is the best season I’ve ever seen, and nothing could make me happier. Other than, of course, the fact that I finally finished writing my Monogatari essay. It’ll take some editing, but I can at least promise now that it really will be out soon, and having that weight off my back makes me feel great. Enjoy.
Not much to say this week. The season is slowly approaching its close, as I’ve put on hold more than half of what I wanted to watch this season. I need to marathon some of them over winter break, but yeah, good week. Keep Flip Flapping.
No Sangatsu this week, which is a major shame. In brighter news, I finally managed to actually motivate myself to watch anime again this week, and so I can finally stop procrastinating my anime watching, which should force me to actually get my Monogatari post out. It’s been a while since I posted an actual essay or article, but I’m eager to do so, and if I continue to actually be motivated to watch anime now, I should have a lot more posts coming soon.
This week I put Fune wo Amu on hold. The show just isn’t really my kind of show, and put me off in a few too many key ways for me to keep watching it during the season. Like the rest I intend to get back to it, but who knows when. Other than that this week was fine. I want to put out non-recap content, but I’m really struggling to watch more anime than my weeklies right now, and the manga I’m reading are for a long term project that I’m nowhere near completing. Pokemon Moon is taking up my life which doesn’t help. Anyways, let’s look at this week’s shows.
This was quite a bad week for me, perhaps for obvious reasons, but I don’t want to dwell on it. I’m in a bit of a slump in terms of watching anime right now. I run into these about once a year, but now that I watch more weeklies it’s a bigger problem. For that reason I’ve put Drifters, Keijo, Occultic;Nine, MahoIku, and Izetta on hold for now. I do plan on finishing them, but right now I can’t motivate myself to do so. Other than that this was at least a good week for anime, so there was at least one plus to being awake this week.
I fell behind this week, but thanks to a four-day weekend I managed to pull through and catch back up. I’ve spent a lot of the last week formulating plans for writing projects that could take months to complete due to the necessary research, but it’s fun to embark on new adventures. For now I’ll just work on writing my Monogatari article and keep delivering these recaps. Enjoy!
This was quite a good week. The season continued to be strong to the point that the number of shows I’m watching is a burden, but it’s a blessing as well as a curse. I got a lot of my Monogatari re-watch done and should be finishing that up this week. I love the series, but it’s so dialogue-heavy that trying to watch it successively can be a bit of a slog. Kizu part 2 was great as expected. Anyways, here’s the shows:
