Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu – On the average anime high school student

Not a single psychic power between the lot of them.

Since it’s so easy for anime to be out of this world, it’s easy to overlook the down to earth.

Haruchika ~Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru~ – Tackling the Issues

While not perfectly told, Haruchika had the audacity to try and be different.

Haruchika never had the best execution, but it tackled issues that many anime would shy away from or would be ignorant enough to ignore.

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku Wo! – 10 (END)

「この理不尽な要塞に終焔を!」 (Kono Rifujin’na Yousai ni Tsui Homura o!)
“A Final Flame for this Over-the-top Fortress”

KonoSuba proves that it can do thrilling action, thank you very much, but it’s going to crack jokes all the way through. The anime industry also proves that it’s not entirely daft. Second season confirmed!

Tabi Machi Late Show – Stories of Nostalgia and Melancholy

Short-form anime just keep getting better.

People often say it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for. That’s certainly the case with Tabi Machi Late Show, which came from nowhere and proved to be an ambitious little show that deserves more attention than it has received.

Monthly Impressions – December 2015

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with friends and family! We’ve been busy preparing for our routine beginning-of-the-year posts and we’re starting off with our last Monthly Impressions. If you haven’t already read our November Monthly Impression, I give a much more detailed explanation there. We hope you enjoyed these Monthly Impressions which we’ve been carrying on for more than a year now. We hope to use up this time to give you guys bigger and better things in the future. Anyway, here’s a quick peek of how the fall season ended and surprisingly, it was much better than I anticipated. With a ton of sequels and what people thought was going to be a mediocre season, it ended up exceeding my expectations. I hope you all found a little bit to enjoy as well and get ready for next season!

WORKING!!! – 14 (END)

「ロード・オブ・ザ・小鳥遊」 (Roudo obu za Takanashi)
“Lord of the Takanashi”

It’s rare for anime comedies to get three seasons, an hour-long finale, and reach a natural conclusion – yet WORKING!! is a rare sort of series, I suppose. It feels good to see it end like this, yet sad to see it end at all.

「櫻子さんの足下には…」 (Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa…)
“Under Sakurako’s Feet…”

In a surprising and belated turn of events, Sakurako-san ends with a prologue – showing us what could (and perhaps should) have been the very first episode, rather than the last
