Now that every show has aired several episodes—and then a couple more, while I took my sweet time putting the post together—it’s time to tell you what we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2016 blogging schedule.
As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season . . . is what we used to say, but with multiple episodes under our belts, we’re pretty confident in our picks. Will some of them blow up in our faces? Probably. But this is what we’re going with.
In staff news, you’ll notice that I, Stilts, the person who is writing this post, is not blogging this season. (Zephyr neither, but that’s not news. Also, he smells.) What the crap is going on, you ask! (Stop yelling.) Well, as I mentioned on the couple of shows I did intro, I’ve been dealing with four jobs as of late, and I badly needed to limit it to only three. I would have preferred RC not be the one I had to step away from, but since it neither pays the bills or underpins my entire self-esteem (must . . . write . . . books . . . FASTER!), it was the natural choice. Plus, exhaustion was making me rather moody, which doesn’t make for great blogging.
So, that’s why. But fear not, for I shall not be gone long! (Or fear well, if you don’t like me. Haters gonna hate, etc.) How can I say that with such confidence? Because KonoSuba is back next season. Duh. Like I’m gonna miss a chance to write about that.
In show news, Zephyr and me stepping back for the season has left us with fewer shows covered than I would prefer, though our new kouhai Pancakes (Pan-chan, as I call him—not to be confused with Pa-kun, who is Australian instead of Canadian, and therefore equally deserving of ridicule) is picking up the slack nicely, so kudos. Now don’t get cocky, kid, or I’ll feed you to the sharks.
Note to self: get sharks.
Anywho, that’s all I’ve got for now. Maybe we’ll end up picking up another writer soon-ish, or maybe not, though either way that’s an issue for future us to deal with. For now, all that remains is to enjoy a bunch of anime together, and possibly some pie. Or ice cream? I think I have ice cream. Ice cream it is! (And anime.)
- 10/28: Thanks to a little help from his friend (and our newest kouhai), Enzonon will have time for another series after all. Ajin 2nd Season is receiving coverage!
