The dawn of 2013 means the beginning of another new anime season, the Winter 2013 anime season to be precise. Seeing as we’ll be spending the new few months with a number of these anime, it’s time to look ahead and examine these new show as a means to prepare for the upcoming season. With a number of charts, lists and impressions already out there, here’s my personal take on the Winter 2013 anime season.
Now that I’ve arrived back home from Japan, I can resume blogging about random tangential posts on the various anime I watch. But before we dive into the finales for Nisemonogatari, Guilty Crown, and Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam is a post I intended to have published while I was on vacation but it wasn’t completed in time and left for when I returned. Starting the trend of answering 50 questions was AceRailgun (I recommend you check out his blog) and quite a number of other anime bloggers have already done similar posts since. I meant to have this up weeks ago but it kept getting delayed and was never completed until now. So here are my answers to the 50 questions!
Before embarking on another year of anime and adventures, we need to give a proper close to 2011 and give the year of anime an appropriate review. While the four seasonal reviews provide all my detailed thoughts in a timely fashion, the structure of this post is to give a ranking for the anime of this year, the characters of this year, and a few extra tidbits to recognize this wonderful year and show appreciation it for all it has done.
With the calendar of 2011 crowning our comically overfilled garbage bin following the holiday celebrations, there’s no better time than the present to take a moment (or however long it takes you to get through this mammoth of a post) and reflect on the anime from this previous Autumn, the final anime season of 2011.
Hope you all had a merry Christmas and are enjoying the holiday season. This is the final week of the Autumn season, so this is the last weekly anime review for now. Expect the same format to reappear in the 2012 with a slew of new anime and a few favorites from this season to carry over. This week: Maya in Working’!!, that crazy and random fight between beasts in UN-Go, bonding with Chizuru in Ika Musume, and an appropriate but ambiguous finale for Penguindrum.
I don’t ever recall watching an entire anime before just because of one character but Makoto Kikuchi from Idolmaster did just that. So she’s getting Day 6 all to herself on my 12 Days of Anime.
