Seasonal Review: Winter 2021 (Part 2)

Here we go, new anime season round two. Other anime I have missed are also getting their second seasons this… season! Namely Cells at Work! and THE PROMISED NEVERLAND, so that’s fun. I’ve also been spending time playing catch-up with other shows (namely Ninjago as of when I’m writing this), and also potentially preparing to start doing something with my life again (!!!!????), namely tutoring for a bit before I likely fuck back off to college in the fall (hopefully!). This post covers anime that premiered between January 9th and January 13th.

Seasonal Review: Winter 2021 (Part 1)

So, welcome to 2021. The actual start of the new decade, probably. Seven or so years from the year 2038 problem. This anime season starts while the thought of Funimation’s imminent acquisition of Crunchyroll looms over my head. Hopefully I don’t have to explain why the nigh-monopolization of anime streaming is bad to you. I’m not going to get into it anyways, because I’m exhausted by life. (Really ideally anti-trust bullshit will stop it from going through, but I’m not optimistic. If it didn’t stop Disney acquiring Fox, why would it stop this? sigh) Anyways, here we go. This post covers anime that premiered between January 4th and January 8th. (There were a lot of advance premieres this season, but I’m going to count all of those starting from their “actual” start dates.)

Review: Hiveswap: Act 2

Man, it’s a shame that recently the only media I’ve singled out for review lately are ones that filled me with enough ragedisappointment to complain about it in a blog post. Hm, maybe next post should be me loveposting about Barbie & The Magic of Pegasus or something. We’ll see.

Anyways, Homestuck‘s had quite the muddy track record, hasn’t it? This is really only the latest mediocre disappointment in a decade-long media franchise. So, this post will go into the overall history with Homestuck and its related media, what I liked about the game, the glaring issues with the game, and finally just my minor nitpicky grievances that are annoying but basically nothing compared to the major problems. So, here we go. Be warned, most of the review will contain light spoilers for what little plot the game has.

Seasonal Review: Fall 2020 (Part 2)

Welcome back gang! I did an attic crawl and decorated up the house, and also bought candy at CVS yesterday. It’s spooky season! Celebrate responsibly. Trick or treating is probably a bad idea. Cosplaying at home is fine. Anyways, this post covers anime that initially aired from October 5th through October 13th.

Seasonal Review: Fall 2020 (Part 1)

So, you know how last season only had about 12 premieres due to all the pandemic delays? Well, this season has a RIDICULOUS amount of premieres as a result of that. (Though most of them are shorter anime or second seasons, which I do not cover in these reviews.) Perhaps its a good thing that I’m a temporary NEET for once…?

This post covers anime that initially aired from October 1st through October 4th.

Seasonal Review: Summer 2020

This anime season in terms of new premieres is much more sparse than previous seasons, due to a combo of 1) anime from last season that started airing but then had to go on hiatus and got pushed back until this season to finish and therefore pushing back other anime that would have aired during those times, and 2) anime that was planned to premiere but got pushed back until next season or later due to pandemic complications. What we got left with was uhhh a fair chunk of ecchi. So this is fun!! Overall there’s only about a dozen new anime premieres this season.

Seasonal Review: Spring 2020 (Part 2)

Here we go, part 2. I have 89 emails informing me of recent edits to wiki pages since March 29th I’ve been too scared to try and sift through. This post covers anime that initially aired from April 5th through April 13th.

Seasonal Review: Spring 2020 (Part 1)

So, last time my seasonal review got delayed simply because of procrastination. This time, it was because OUR FUCKING INTERNET WAS BROKEN FROM MARCH 29TH TO APRIL 9TH. Very LOVELY timing especially since I WENT BACK* TO SCHOOL ON MARCH 30TH (*”back” meaning “oh hey its time for online classes and pacing yourself good luck”). This among, uh (gestures widely), meant that I was a little bit slower on the watching uptake than usual. I was able to watch SOME anime on my phone using our temporarily boosted cellular plan, but it’s not my favorite way to watch it. Just above watching on one of those in-seat screens on an airplane, I think.

Anyways, while I’d actually uh, finished watching all of the anime covered in this post for a whiiile now, I didn’t get around to banging out my thoughts until now, so. This post covers anime that initially aired from April 1st through April 4th.

Review: Interspecies Reviewers (異種族レビュアーズ)

It has come to my attention that I overlooked an anime during my last seasonal review, one that has since gained quite a bit of notoriety. It’s quite embarrassing that I overlooked such a hit!! As such, I am now quickly rectifying the situation before I release my Spring 2020 reviews in the following weeks.

Here we go!
