Great, and now that I’ve answered all your questions, let’s dive right into… wait, the Winter 2017 anime season started already? I guess we can skip the Season Preview and jump right into the First… oh, it’s over now? Wow, that’s uh… well, better late than never, right? Anyway, here are my reflections from the recently completed Winter 2017 anime season.
Every season has its defining features. Autumn, for example, is known for its bountiful harvests and leaves falling to the ground. Likewise, every anime season has its distinguishing characteristics thanks to the anime that air within its interval. Sometimes, anime seasons are bountiful, like an autumn harvest, and others are barren, like the trees after shedding their leaves. What type of season will Autumn 2016 bring us? Let’s take a peak and see what we have in store for the final season of 2016.
Hopefully all the shows are okay, fa la la la la la la la la.
But we know that’s not realistic, fa la la la la la la la la.
Then again, I am pessimistic, fa la la la la la la la la.
Look below for my Summer preview, fa la la la la la la la la.
Berserk, Zestiria, and Amanchu!, fa la la la la la la la la.
Looking pretty good with those, fa la la la la la la la la.
Wait, what’s with all these fujoshi shows?, fa la la la la la la la la.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness. It was the Spring Autumn of hope, it was the Winter of despair. Or rather, it was the Autumn 2015 anime season, it was the Winter 2016 anime season. Never have I seen such a stark, significant contrast in the types and content of anime between consecutive seasons, but we’re following up arguably the best anime season in recent memory with quite possibly the worst. If you haven’t checked, now might be a good time to see why I am so crestfallen with the anime airing this winter.
Let’s start 2016 with a proper farewell to 2015. Before we look forward to another year of anime, we should look back on 2015 and reflect on what made it one of the best years of anime in recent memory. There were numerous anime and characters that were incredible, dazzling, brilliant sensational, influential, and monumental in 2015, and today, I want to take a moment to provide my thoughts and opinions on the 15 most significant anime and characters from this last year. Come, take a look and re-experience why the anime of 2015 are so remarkable and unforgettable.
The way most people realize that it’s the beginning of autumn is that the days begin to grow shorter, the air begins to feel cooler, and the trees transition into a palette of warm yellows, oranges and reds. But for me, the only way I realize that it’s the beginning of autumn is when the autumn anime season begins! And yes, with the start of the Autumn 2015 anime season this week, it’s time again to look ahead to this new season of anime and project, speculate, and guesstimate which anime we should watch.
