12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 8 – Giving a Forgotten Anime a Chance
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Anime on December 18, 2012
Much like last year’s Day 8, when I wrote about sticking with a bad anime to find it somewhat entertaining and certainly worthwhile, this post will be able an anime I never gave a fair opportunity to when it aired in the past only try it now and find it enjoyable and definitely worth watching. It serves as an excellent reminder of the potential gems and stars among the forgotten or ignored anime of seasons or years bygone. Resting in obscurity or uncertainty, these anime were rejected or dropped due to flawed research, lacking prospects, evolving tastes, time constraints, or for whatever reason we decide not to watch an anime. However, when the opportunity appears, taking another chance with these anime may completely reverse our opinion on it simply based on the fact that we actually are watching the anime rather than just speculating about it. For me, that anime is Yuru Yuri, an anime I gave a second (or first?) chance to in 2012 and have loved it ever since.

Autumn 2011 – First Week Impressions (Part 1)
Posted by avvesione in 2011 Autumn, Anime, First Impressions on October 4, 2011
This post examines C3 CubexCursedxCurious, Working’!!, Phi Brain, and Kimi to Boku.
The first bunch of shows for this Autumn season have aired and everyone is busily sampling what each have to offer. The first week of a new season is always the most active and pivotal since this is the time when people begin to decide whether to stay with an anime for 12+ weeks or not. Many allow each show to have two-to-three episodes before passing judgment but not me. One episode is usually enough to influence me one way or the other, so let’s see how these first few shows performed.
