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.
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.
Last week: two things I wish they did more of in Gakkou Gurashi, celebrating the rural setting of Non Non Biyori Repeat, deliberating the lack of anime voice acting roles in Sore ga Seiyuu!, and the lack of Maya Matsumoto in the finale of Working!!!.
I’ve been terrible with staying current on anime movies. As you can probably guess from how I struggle to stay on time with my TV anime and with my blog posts, you can imagine how difficult it is for me to be up-to-date on all the anime movies that air every season. And with my movie backlog continuing to grow and grow, I made a decision early on in 2014 to make an effort to watch anime movies this year… and not just the ones that air, but to go back and catch up on all the ones I’ve missed.
Oh, right, I do these kinda posts, too. This week: Kaiki bringing out the best in others in Monogatari Series Second Season, watching the OVA that connects episodes 8 and 9 in Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta, the setting feeling undervalued in Nagi no Asukara, and the true victims of torture in Samurai Flamenco “B”.
When Steins;Gate ended back in September, I did not want anymore. The roller-coaster adventure that ventured not only through time itself but every human emotion ended in one of the most perfect ways possible. Its finale was remarkable and one of the most memorable and favorable I have ever seen from an anime. Anymore and it would’ve been a drop-off of what Steins;Gate 24 was for me.
But that was then, and this is now. In the short weeks following the finale to Steins;Gate, I realized I wanted to see an epilogue in the current timeline of what Okabe, Kurisu, and everyone else was up to. What were their lives like now, I’d wonder. Well, fortunately my wishes were responded to and this OVA, the 25th episode of Steins;Gate, satisfied my craving for seeing what happens after the conclusion of episode 24.
