With all the recent posts, I didn’t want to clutter the front page with more impressions, but I haven’t forgotten about June’s finales. This wraps up our spring season and I’m sad to see it go because there were honestly some gems in here that I enjoyed more than I expected. As a whole though, there’s plenty of opportunities for future sequels here and some of them have even been confirmed already! That’s something to look forward to in the future. In the meantime, let’s take a step back and talk about ones that finished up in June. Love to hear what everyone liked/didn’t like and how their spring season went compared to their expectations.Continue Reading "Monthly Impressions – June 2015"
「さよならコンクール」 (Sayonara Konkuuru)
The performance to get Kitauji High School to Nationals has finally arrived, and what a note it was to end on.Continue Reading "Hibike! Euphonium – 13 (END)"
“As Many Times As It Takes”
After a bit of a delay, we finally get the final episode of Kuroko no Basuke.Continue Reading "Kuroko no Basuke 3 – 25 (END)"
「いつかまた巡り会えますように」 (Itsuka Mata Meguriaemasu Yō Ni)
“I Hope One Day, You’ll Be Reunited”
In a story like this, can there be a happy ending?Continue Reading "Plastic Memories – 13 (END)"
Just when you thought you’ve seen everything. This is how an ending should be done.Continue Reading "Sidonia no Kishi: Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki – 12 (END)"
「俺は白石が好きだ！」 (Ore wa Shiraishi ga sukida!)
“I Love You, Shiraishi!”
In a way, it was all worth it just for that ending.Continue Reading "Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo – 12 (END)"
As is appropriate for this kind of story, they all lived happily ever after.Continue Reading "Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works – 25 (END)"
Ghosts, friends, smiles, warmth, & girls holding hands. This picture says it all.
A slice-of-life with ghosts. What could have easily been a gag anime with a tinge of yuri became one of the more contemplative, meaningful, and life-affirming series of spring—even though a large part of the cast was already dead.Continue Reading "Re-Kan – Life-Affirming Ghost Stories"
Funnily enough, this isn’t really a fanservice/ecchi anime…
Who would have thought it… Punch Line actually made sense in the end!Continue Reading "Punch Line – Panties Will Save the World"
“The season was a success, guys. Let’s go get drunk.” And so they did.
It didn’t start out especially stunning, but the foundation was solid, and with time it began to distinguish itself from other magical-fantasy-action-harem anime. It’s more than an adventure; it’s a myth in the making. It’s a hero’s tale.Continue Reading "DanMachi – A Mythical Hero Rises"
I feel like this second season cheated us a little bit.Continue Reading "Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken 2 Sure-me – 13 (END)"
「なによりとびきり好きだから」 (Naniyori Tobikiri Sukidakara)
“Because I Love You More Than Anything”
Coming back to where everything started, I suppose it’s rather fitting that our final episode would be mostly in England.Continue Reading "Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic – 12 (END)"
「いつでも、いつまでも！」 (Itsu Demo, Itsu Made mo!)
“Any Time, For All Time!”
Well that was a lackluster ending to what was, up until the last few episodes, a pretty fun season. TNK fumbled at the finish line, and they only have themselves to blame.Continue Reading "High School DxD BorN – 12 (END)"
As we’re all getting pumped up for the spring season, let’s not forget to reflect on the winter shows which recently ended. This post has been delayed (partially due to me) because we wanted to get all the shows wrapped up before doing our final impressions. This is reflective of most of the series our writers have finished this season and hopefully we can give you a good idea of shows you’ve missed which we thought were worthwhile. If there’s anything that we missed, please feel free to discuss those shows below and maybe it’ll give us some suggestions of what we should catch-up on. With that said, happy spring everyone! Hope it’s warm where you are!Continue Reading "Monthly Impressions – March 2015"
The more you look at Kamisama Hajimemashita, the deeper it gets
