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:
Writing these takes an awfully large amount of work, though I suppose that’s mostly due to how many shows I’m watching, so I only have myself to blame. Anyways, this was a pretty good week for anime. I should be watching Kizu Part 2 by the time this post comes up, so next week should start off well. I’ve been rewatching all of Monogatari for an upcoming essay, but it’s taking a bit longer than I expected so there might be a long break between my soon to release essay and the Monogatari one. That’s enough talking about my plans for now, let’s look at this week’s shows:
Seeing how many shows I’m watching this season(16, and it’ll be 17 if I pick up Keijo), I figured now was as good a time as any to start writing about shows weekly. Making dedicated posts is too much work though so I figure I’ll just do a weekly recap. Weeks start on Mondays by this schedule, so Week 2 goes up to October 16th. Series will be ordered based on my current ranking of them. No pictures this week as I hadn’t decided to do this yet, but they should be here from next week on.
2016 has been a good year to be. One of my top 10 shows, Amanchu aired this year, we got more Aria, and I’ve given an 8 to at least one show every season, which is far better than usual for me. Fall doesn’t look quite as good as Summer, but it has plenty of great-looking shows, and I plan on starting nearly every non-sequel. I’ve narrowed down the list of shows I’m checking out to the ten I’m most anticipating.
