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.
One of the best feelings of this past year of anime has been the general feeling of joining and being a part of the anime community. Not only has the whole processes been inspirational and motivating, I’ve met so many people with similar passions who express their affection in immeasurable ways and have deepening existing friendships as well. It is truly one of the best things about anime of this past year.
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.
