「たまこラブストーリー」 (Tamako Rabusutourii)
“Tamako Love Story”
I once said that what Tamako Market lacked was romance, and that it didn’t make good on its potential by bringing real change to its characters’ lives. Now, with Tamako Love Story, they’ve done that. So the question becomes—did they succeed?

Another Monthly Impressions post brought to you by the RC staff! This one’s a little different though. Given that it’s the end of the summer season (Noo! Summer is over!), these impressions will be a wrap up of our thoughts for this season’s shows. For all the readers that have been asking for our impressions of how the season compared to our initial expectations, this is where you’re going to get that information. If you wanted to get more thorough insights, most of the series will have their own finale posts available on the site as well. With that said, most of the anime I’ve seen this summer have been delightful and I can’t wait to get on to fall in… a couple of days!

Space Dandy may not have been the series that many had originally hoped for, but this misfit creation shouldn’t have been any different.

「かえってきてうりしか」 (Kaette Kite Urishika)
“Glad You’re Back”
I’ve tried writing this intro sentence about a hundred times now and I can’t seem to find the right combination of words to create a accurate enough sentence describe my feelings about this final episode. All I can say for sure though, is that this finale was absolutely fantastic.
