In Which I Ask, Do I Qualify for Aniblog Citizenship Now?

Tsk, looks like it's that time of year to do this post again.

So it’s that time of year again where I am legally obligated to point out how long this particular blog has lasted. It’s now reached the point where in many nations I would now be qualified for citizenship for simply being able to hold down a job and not commit any crimes that would see me deported. The caveat to that being that I’m working in the aniblog fast food joint washing dishes while others who emigrated with me are now captains of industry.* That’s enough for the depressing bits in this post (and the many other drafts that are far worse than that you will not see). Instead, I’m going to keep things simple with five things I’ve learned since this blog started.

The Week that Was February 26 – March 4

I'd write something hilarious if I was any good at writing in a faux-Glaswegian accent.

I’ve come to realize that I don’t really watch all that much during the week, and can only really be bothered on the weekends. That’s alright surely. Anyway, some different shows from last week while I continue to fall further behind on what everyone is really watching.

The Week That Was February 19-25

It was a week in which a crater and volcanoes in general became a contentious political issue.

After last week, I was always going to watch more this time around. However, I may actually have a bit less to say than I did last week. Blame Norman Cook for it if you want.

The Week that Was February 5-11

Rafael Marquez sent off in another 2-0 defeat for Mexico against the United States. Even with how much the world has changed in the last year, some things never change.

The sixth week of the year went by and I watched a bit more than last week. Overall, I’d put it at merely average, though, my opinion may actually over the course of this little recap.

The Week That Was January 22-28

This week's recap is powered by New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red ale. If you don't understand what that means, it means this isn't exactly being written sober.

The winter anime season continues, and rather predictably, it’s dropping a ton in quality. Perhaps I should have been watching more than one sequel. Anyway, here are my thoughts on what I’ve watched in the past 168 hours, presented in stream-of-consciousness (I have a hate-hate relationship with Faulkner you see).

The second week of the year 2009 in my anime viewing will probably not be remembered over the long haul. There was a sign of recovery in one show I slagged off last week, while another’s animation budget plummeted like the value of an Icelandic bank. Overall, it could probably be considered a mediocre week. Continue reading The Week That Was January 8-14
