Archive for category 2011 Autumn
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.
Say, whatever happened to my episodic posts on Shinryaku!? Ika Musume? Well, it’s sad to note but these past couple weeks have seen a significant reduction in my amount of freetime meaning something had to go. And well, Ika Musume just happened to be the unlucky one. That doesn’t mean I stopped watching the show, just I can’t type up my thoughts, analyses, or tangents on Ika Musume every week like I have been. Instead, it’s going to be included in my weekly reviews meaning you’ll see it here from now on. There is a slight chance that it may go back to episodic posting once I have more time but for now, it’ll be a part of these posts.
This week: a surprisingly emotional iDOLM@STER episode, the lone person who cares about the truth in UN-Go, and a spotlight on Taichi in Chihayafuru. Oh, and the order of anime in this post has flipped, so now it’s reverse. Yippee!!
