Spring 2014 – Week 10 Anime Review

inugami_san_to_nekoyama_san-09-yachiyo-suzu-aki-panic-comedy-chibiBack whenever these episodes of anime aired: how detailing the background characters in Isshuukan Friends represents Kaori’s growth as a character, wondering if Adashino-sensei is Ginko’s only friend in Mushishi Zoku Shou, being frustrated with the expositions in No Game No Life, and why I’m going to miss Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin when it’s over.

12 Days of Anime (2013) – Day 7 – Anime Away from Home

zetsuen_no_tempest-23-hakaze-bikini-swimsuit-pool-relaxing-water-light-boobsAlthough I have watched anime away from home prior to this experience, it was always a momentary event.  Whether it was watching an episode of Kare Kano in Italy in 2002 or bits and pieces of Nichijou while in Tokyo in 2012, I’ve experienced watching anime away from my computer or my TV.  However, prior to this year, it had always been just an episode or parts of an episode.  I also was not taking screenshots or blogging my thoughts on these episodes either.  So when presented with the challenge of moving away from home for 3 months, from August to October, I wondered how my habits of watching anime and blogging anime would be impacted.

12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 11 – Joining the Anime Community on Twitter

medaka_box_abnormal-08-onigase-nekomi-twitter-cell_phones-comedy-friendsAlthough I officially joined Twitter on Christmas Day last year, it was 2012 when I discovered the bustling, chatty and sociable anime community there and began to frequent the service on a regular basis.  In my entire first year of blogging, I failed to capitalize on the dynamic resource that was Twitter which supports a lively community of numerous anime- and manga-fans.  Most other anime bloggers have accounts and use the media platform as a means to communicate with each other.  So throughout 2012, I began to use the service to connect with other anime- and manga-fans which had an unfathomable affect and influence on how I watch and appreciate anime.

Summer 2012 – Season Review

So, yeah, the Summer anime season ended quite a while back, but it’s never too late (or is it?) to provide my final thoughts, opinions, assessments, and evaluations on the various anime that aired over our warmer, sunnier months.  We’ve had plenty of time to watch and enjoy these shows and now it’s time to assign their final scores before they become little more than fond or funny memories or entries in our detailed anime histories.  So, just how well did every show do according to my personal preferences?  It’s time to explore and score the 2012 Summer anime season one last time!

Summer 2012 – Week 10 Anime Review

This week: outshining the Sengoku characters in Sengoku Collection, thoughts on the commitment to its plot in Tari Tari, an inability to grow-up in Space Brothers, and what I wish we saw more of in Hyouka.
