What you are reading here is the beginning of this blog’s 500th post. I worked it out so amazingly well that it falls dead in the middle of another bunch of posts and so it will be buried for weeks on end. So in that spirit, I’ve decided to do a list of my top anime. The humiliation won’t last all that long because of when this is scheduled thankfully.
It’s now getting toward the end of the season. It should be the very moment when the shows I watch improve vastly to leave an impression on me as a member of the audience. Instead, it was a week where everyone was tripping over themselves to be the next show to crap the bed. Only 2 shows get any real credit this week. As for terribad, it didn’t happen this week because nobody can be arsed without my fantasy football opponent nor a certain aniblogger based in Northern Ireland. Maybe next week for that. As for the lack of Lagrange, it’s not dropped…yet.
This week on the weekly recap that seems to be running out of steam each time I write it, there is the usual combination of currently airing and catching up on older shows. This week’s features a classy show of the type featured at The Classiest Anime. As for anything else going on the the world around here, there hasn’t been much beyond my slow, slow attempt to play through Persona 4 for the first time and my propensity not to save often enough. On that sad note, it’s time to get this thing back underway.
It was one of those so-so sort of weeks here in this part of the world. Actually, for certain people from this part of the world, it was a massive week. However, for me, personally, nothing of note. Anyway, it’s on to another one of my weekly recaps where my mountain of factual errors, ridiculous opinions and a general lack of taste serve as the source of entertainment…I think. So on with what I watched.
Some changes to the title of this series of posts as it never actually was accurate due to Space Bros coming out so late on the Saturday here. As far as quality, it wasn’t the best week. It did, however, allow me to catch up on a certain show that ended up featuring in my comment for Kevo’s weekly Anime Power Ranking post. Perhaps I should catchup on more during the week since I have this massive gap from Sunday to Thursday without anything to watch.
And so another week passes in this rather ordinary summer. The weather has thankfully been cooling off. On the other hand, the new season of my other fandom has kicked off this weekend. That could mean the end of these weekly recaps even though they feature the only shows other people are watching since episode 4 proved to be the ragequitting point of Koichoco for a good number of people. So here is how they turned out:
In light of the fact that there still is no Koichoco for another week, I have to submit you to another one of these weekly recap posts. Hopefully that should go away once the corporate sponsorship orgy taking place in the British capital finishes up and everything returns to normal. So to kick this off, I did not watch anything beyond the currently airing, and terribad was a very special live-action movie called Ninja Terminator. Thanks to Shinmaru for the recommendation on that.
Since there was no Koichoco episode to write about this week, I figured now was as good a time as any to revisit the weekly roundup posts that were never popular here in the first place. Why would anyone go here for this stuff anyway, but I digress. Summer typically isn’t a good season for me to watch lots of series and I don’t think I missed out on much from last summer. Combined with the fact that I evidently have an extraordinarily bad history of voting in the Anime Power Rankings which I have been tracking my own votes throughout the year, I could throw in running rankings as I do these posts if it becomes a regular feature.
The start of summer (or winter Southern Hemisphere folks) brings with it plenty of things. Where I’m at that means heat, humidity and ridiculously inflated utility bills in a quest to maintain some adequate level of comfort. On a much more relevant note, it also means another new season of series to watch. I think in the past, the summer season has largely been dismissed as inferior to the spring and fall seasons. So I decided to look back 5 years to see what came out of that summer. Continue reading
Unlike yesterday’s post, there’s a large number of things I did watch in this season. There’s a wide range consisting of things like cynical marketing ploys, a poor man’s School Days, several visual novel adaptations and yes, more Minami-ke. Continue reading
