As a way to get into the groove of blogging we will now take a look at the winter anime season.
I find it funny that I in the preview post said I would not end up watching a lot and instead spend my time plowing through my anime backlog. By now I should know that I will never be able to not pick up one or two more series than initially planned, but considering how calm this season has been… it baffles me that I picked up so much. Very surprising indeed.

What first seemed to be an exciting anime season turned out to be a fairly lacklustre one. So far even the best series have yet to bring out any “wham” episode. While it may be sort of early into the season, there is no excuse for any of the series to not have some kind of hook that grabs me. Sure, I am interested in them, but I would not call myself excited.
You are happily watching your favorite ongoing anime when suddenly you are faced with an episode preview that clearly shows that there will be a recap episode next week, whereupon you become filled with disgust and curse the anime studio which dares to put a new and fresh episode on hold for the sake of a simple summary.
This is something that most likely has happened to everyone at least once and each time you let out a big sigh. Why do we even have these recaps? Can they be any good? In fact, are they even needed these days?
With school soon over, there will be plenty of time for good weekly scheduling for blog posts. As the situation stands today, I cannot say I am very proud over the results, with tons of posts one month and barely any in another. The following summer will be a lot of fun in return, I can assure you!
But now, it is time for my impressions of the spring 2012 season! Hope you enjoy it! Continue reading →
Halloween is upon us and so are the fall 2011 impressions. So far, it has been a rather lacklustre season, with the big meat named Guilty Crown failing to live up to its initial expectations. At least it seems that we have a few unexpected shows that are starting to leave bigger impressions on me with each episode. If you want to find out my thoughts, read on! Continue reading →
