Winter 2015 Season Wrap

Winter is over and spring is officially here! At least, that’s the case in the Northwest–sorry if you’ve still got snowūüėČ I am shocked at the number of shows that finished up this season, both one and two cours. My anime list was temporarily tiny before I started picking up new anime¬†at the start of this month.

I apologize for the delay in this post; Sakura-con always seems to fall smack on the weekend between shows ending and beginning. iDOLM@S also hung around a week later than everything else and I wanted to include it in the season wrap. The 22 shows I finished up (and in the order discussed) are:

  • Bonjour Koiaji Patisserie
  • Akatsuki no Yona
  • Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
  • Dog Days”
  • Koufuku Grafitti
  • Death Parade
  • Log Horizon 2nd Season
  • Daiya no Ace
  • Shirobako
  • Yowamushi Pedal: Grande Road
  • Rolling‚ėÜGirls
  • Tokyo Ghoul ‚ąöA
  • Sanzoku no Musume Ronya
  • Aldnoah.Zero 2nd Season
  • Kamisama Hajimemashita‚óé
  • Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu
  • Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE!
  • Yoru no Yatterman
  • Durarara!! x 2¬†Shou
  • The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls
  • Garo: Honoo no Kokuin
  • Absolute Duo
  • Junketsu no Maria

Winter 2015 Set Menu

We’re about three weeks into the 2015 winter season, and I’m still undecided on quite a few shows. I thought I wouldn’t be adding in too many this time around since the line-up didn’t impress me at a glance, but I’ve got a surprising amount clinging on to my continuations from the fall. I’ve broken my shows into three categories: watching, undecided, and ongoing. Fuller thoughts on new shows are given first, with quick summaries of my feelings on the shows still airing from previous seasons¬†following at the end. Let me know what you think is missing from my list (any why) and I’ll give it a try!

Fall 2012 Season Wrap

Blame Jormungand 2 for the delay in my response to the shows I watched for the Fall 2012 season. ¬†But don’t blame Koko, because her and her chic new haircut are just too cute.

These past few months have been a whirlwind of some really great and¬†really bad anime moments, even more so than any other of the 2012 seasons that I can remember. ¬†I also ended up backlogging a few intriguing shows that I simply could not fit into my schedule, including¬†Shin Sekai Yori,¬†Robotics;Notes, and¬†Psycho-Pass. ¬†I have heard enough positive feedback about them from others that I’m probably going to end up marathoning them near the end of the next winter season.

You’ll also notice that I cut my former use of ratings from my season wrap. ¬†Though I feel obligated to assign numbers to these same shows when I “complete” them on MAL, I have a more difficult time justifying my scores here. ¬†Sometimes a show that quality-wise would probably score around a 5, I’d personally feel like giving an 8 because of the enjoyment factor. ¬†So until I convince and artist friend or commission one to draw me some food or home-themed rating images, I’ll cut scores for now! Read on, my dear readers, and let me know what you thought of the season or even past year as a whole!

Fall 2012 Set Meal

Now a full month into the fall season, I’ve finally settled on which shows I’ll be watching from week to week. ¬†I actually would like to include a few more, but my busy schedule means that some of them will have to be reserved for a slower time of year. ¬†For now, I’ve got nine new series to add to my watch list, and boy is there a lot of fluff and romance in the air!
