Although 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.
Despite being months overdue and embarrassingly late, the review for the Winter 2012 anime season is at long last completed. Though these anime have long since concluded and become a fragment of our cherished memories, there should be closure for these shows and that’s what this comprehensive review hopes to accomplish. Come, let’s take a moment to reexamine, reanalyze, and reflect on the anime that composed the first anime season of 2012.
This week: underwater visuals in Tsuritama, the intelligence of the Bentenmaru crew in Mouretsu Pirates, a pattern of storytelling that Space Brothers has been relying on, and thoughts on the finale to The Future Diary.
With my vacation quickly approaching, this will be my last weekly anime review of the season. I will be provide more details later but I will be gone for roughly two weeks which means it will be unmanageable to write two weekly posts, especially since I will be away from my computer and anime in general. So this is it for the weekly anime reviews for the Winter season!
With that said, this week: a minor detail which in Chihayafuru which I absolutely love, something that is missing in Mouretsu Pirates, and an anime setting where I’d want to move to.
Well, this is a bit overdue but better late than never. As like the previous seasons, after hitting the midseason point, the order of the anime in this post have been flipped meaning it starts with Rinne no Lagrange and ends with Another. Though it isn’t much, it does change the perspective by putting the anime in a different order, at least for me if not anyone else.
This week: looking for a better word than ‘pirate’ for Mouretsu Pirates, something else you can do with your diary in Future Diary, and a growing problem with the cast of BRAVE10.
The midway point in a season is about the fairest time to evaluate an anime since each show has had ample time to introduce its characters, establish its story, differentiate itself from the rest, and show enough to allow us to form proper judgment. Each show has had time to work out its kinks and oddities, too, as well as reveal its true self after spectacular or sluggish beginnings. Now that the Winter Anime season is well past its midway point, it’s time to take a moment and see how the anime we love and watch this season are performing and how they compare to each other.
