Summer 2016 Season Wrap, Part 1

Somehow I made it through this busy summer with more shows than I expected, though I did drop a handful that I had originally intended to keep, like Kyoukai no Rinne and Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE! LOVE! When I found myself repeatedly choosing other series over these to view each week, then faced the large number of un-watched episodes near the end of the summer season, I realized that I had zero interest in either. I already had my hands full with so many other series! Here is the first part of my summer season review, with more to follow.

  • Amaama to Inazuma
  • Amanchu!
  • Arslan Senki (TV): Fuujin Ranbu
  • Battery
  • Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!!
  • Handa-kun
  • New Game!
  • Planetarian: Chiisana Hoshi no Yume
  • Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu

Summer 2016 Set Menu

Better late than never, right? This is less of a start-of-the-season round-up of my choices, and more of a progress report now that we’re a little more than quarter of the way through the summer. My list is woefully long despite my crazy summer schedule that includes a ton of family and friend events in the weeks and days leading up to my wedding. I’ve only been able to keep up thanks to my daily commute which takes up almost two hours of my time every work day. There are plenty of gems this season across multiple genres to pick from, and below are my choices in alphabetical order:

  • 91 Days
  • Amaama to Inazuma
  • Amanchu!
  • Arslan Senki (TV): Fuujin Ranbu
  • Battery
  • Cheer Danshi!!
  • Days (TV)
  • Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!
  • Fukigen na Mononokean
  • Handa-kun
  • Love Live! Sunshine!!
  • Mob Psycho 100
  • Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin

Summer 2015 Set Menu

I could seriously use a honeydew melon creamsicle almost every day this time of year–Seattle is undergoing another record hot summer with days frequently climbing into the 90s. I’m an Alaskan at heart! Take away this oppressive heat!

Thankfully, we have a ton of new shows to fill the time spent cowering in the shade in front of the fan (because no air conditioners here!), along with a handful of continuing series from the spring. We’re about four-five weeks into the summer, and I’ve mostly chosen the ones I’ll be watching either week-to-week, or all at once at the end of the season.

  • Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai

Summer 2014 Season Wrap

This is probably the closest in a while to the end of a season ending that I’ve been able to finish on a timely basis and blog my final thoughts. Nineteen of the shows I’m watching finished up for the summer, with only four continuing on into the fall. The summer was full of its fair share of surprises, from Aldnoah.Zero’s and Zankyou no Terror’s endings to Nozaki-kun’s and Sabagebu!’s brilliant comedy.
