[Script] How 3-gatsu no Lion’s 2nd Season Gave Us the Best Episode of Anime this Year

3-gatsu no Lion, also known as March Comes in Like a Lion, is a show which fluctuates in quality. While it’s usually very good, it often falls back to its fundamentals, delivering an episode which is more mediocre than anything. That said, it delivers frequently enough and with enough strength that it’s managed to become one of my favorite shows this year even with some hiccups.

Winter 2017 Week 11 Recap

This week saw the end of one series, and the penultimate episodes of many more. It wasn’t as happy overall as last week, mostly due to the influence of Kemono Friends, but overall it was still a pretty great time. As the season winds down I’m shifting into other anime while preparing to marathon a few of the ones that I missed. I’m likely to watch less shows next season, but I often say that before picking up shows in the middle of the season, so who knows. Either way, I have a lot of thoughts on this week’s shows, and here they are.

Winter 2017 Week 10 Recap

This was an oddly happy week of anime, and I have no problem with that. I am worried though, since such happiness with a few weeks to go can be a worrying sign. One show finished this week, and more will be ending shortly, so hopefully I’ll be able to watch the show’s I never picked up this season once most of my currently watching shows are done. If everything goes according to plan, I’ll be watching a few less shows next season, though we’ll see as the month goes on. As always, we’ll start with Rakugo, which remains the season’s premiere show.

Winter 2017 Week 9 Recap

My birthday was yesterday, and it was pretty damn good. That’s not super important though. This was another good week of anime, and a pretty good week of writing as well. My next Why I Love It is totally done and ready to be published on Saturday. I really like this one and I hope others enjoy it as well. I’ve also got more Aria posts coming out on the same schedule, and I plan to get started on a number of new essay ideas, including a Nier: Automata essay. Look out for all that and more in the future, but for now enjoy my thoughts on this week.

Winter 2017 Week 8 Recap

It’s late, mostly because Nier: Automata sucked up a week of my time. It was well worth it, and there should eventually be a post on here about it, but it did get me a little off schedule. Fortunately I now have time to build a buffer and get back on track, but this and a few other posts will be a bit later than I wanted. Besides that I really only watched these shows this week, so what you see here is my whole anime experience for the week. Enjoy.

Winter 2017 Week 7 Recap

This was a good week. I dropped Bang Dream, less out of hatred than out of mild boredom, but I picked up Kemono Friends, and that was certainly a worthwhile trade-off. I’ve got a new project beginning with a write-up on Saturday, and if all goes well another project will be starting on Sunday. I’ve finally got a schedule worked out that allows multiple posts every week, and I’m pretty excited with my writing in general right now. My anime watching rate might go down now that I can play Nier: Automata, but I’ve got a big enough buffer now that I’m not worried. Look out for my new stuff, and enjoy my thoughts on this week.

Winter 2017 Week 6 Recap

Another late post, but what are you gonna do. My actual essays are back on track, and with luck another will be out within a few days. I plan on picking up Kemono Friends, so look out for that on the next recap. Eventually I’d like to pick up Pokemon and catch up to Yugioh as well, but Pokemon can wait and I might just start Yugioh again with the next season. Anyways, here’s my thoughts this week.

Winter 2017 Week 5 Recap

Finally, I’m on track for once. I’ve got a post waiting for its final revision, hopefully going up this weekend, and a plan for more essays on the way. My anime watching speed is picking up for real this time, and my “Why I Love It” project is well underway, alongside the shows I watch for fun. Basically, this week was great for me, and hopefully I can keep saying that from here on out. This week was pretty great episode-wise too, so enjoy my thoughts.

Winter 2017 Week 4 Recap

I didn’t write as much this week because some of what I wrote was deleted, but oh well. I managed to finish the show I was watching for my next actual article/essay, which’ll be out within two weeks. I’d like to increase my rate of posting “real” posts, but it might take a little setup to do that, so I can’t promise anything. Anyways, I hopefully will be adding Precure next week, so look out for that.

Winter 2017 Week 3 Recap

Once again fallen behind, but that’s part of the experience at this point. I’ve been working on a lot of plans in the background in that time, some related to this blog and some not, but I don’t want to spill the beans on them in fear of never completing them. I do want to get these out on the right day, but I can try to correct that next week I guess.
