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!
It’s finally December and that means it’s almost 2016! Crazy how quickly the year flies by and Stilts and I have been incredibly busy this month so we apologize that this post has been delayed. A lot has been going on in the RC background, along with US Thanksgiving and of course, the end of the season/year. Anyway, I hope everyone has been enjoying the fall season.
Stilts and I have an important message after the jump…
Wow, it feels like a lifetime since I last wrote a Monthly Impression post. A lot of readers have been asking about where they’ve been, and I stopped posting them last season due to a long list of reasons, but it mainly piles up to – ”I was busy.” The other writers agreed that it was best that we take a break after running for a full year because these posts aren’t easy to compile, and they’re time-consuming. However! With that all said, Stilts and I love you guys so we brought them back and it also keeps our butts updated with anime. Hopefully you’ll get a good glance at what we’re watching this season and what you should pick up if you haven’t already and what you can keep on passing up. If there’s anything missing from this list that you think we should hop on, let us know too.
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.
You’ll have noticed a bit of an absence from our fellow writers this month and that’s because it’s been a busy time in all our lives. Whether it be moving, traveling, graduating or just working a lot of overtime, we’ve done it all so we’re appreciative that the community on RC has been so patient and understanding. With that said, the month of May came and went very quickly for us and it’s time for another monthly wrap-up. As a house-keeping note, please refrain from simply stating that shows are missing from the list. Keep in mind that we’re human and we don’t watch and blog everything. If you have suggestions, we’re more than happy to engage in conversation as to why a show is worth a peek (or maybe other readers are watching too). Thanks!
Spring is finally here and I’m so delighted that the weather has warmed up ~ I love the spring season because not only is it one of my most anticipated seasons, but the workload is generally lighter so I have more time to indulge in my hobbies. Admittedly, this season features a ton of sequels and for good reason – it just shows what a hit the original anime was. For all the new adaptations this season, there’s a lot of potential out there that I urge you to give it a shot. There’s nothing to lose by giving the first few episodes a chance and I hope our impressions below will help you decide what is and is not right for you. As always, your opinions are welcome too!
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!
February always feels like such a short month, even though it’s only missing a few days. There’s Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and despite how some people say that this winter season isn’t the best, there’s still a handful (or more) shows that interest our staff. That’s enough to keep us busy so we’re sorry for the delayed post but without further ado… Enjoy! Keep in mind that even though we’re not watching or posting about a particular series, you are free to talk about it in the comments. You never know, it might entice us to pick it up as well!
We’re already one month in the new year! I can’t believe how quickly time flies because this winter season has completely escaped me. Crazy! I don’t know about everyone else, but I live up in the North and it’s incredibly cold here so I just want to hibernate all day all the time. Thus, I haven’t been watching too many series this season but the ones I have picked up are definitely some great conversation pieces. Hopefully everyone has found something this winter as well and if there’s an anime that we haven’t talked about already, feel free to mention it in the comments. Maybe it’ll spark others to give it a try too.
