Is it just me, or did Iroduku get a whole lot better this week? (Not that it wasn’t good before!) All that and more coming up… So hit that jump and let’s dive into this week’s shows!

Of all the myriad ways I’ve been introduced to anime over the years, I recently found myself thinking back on the times when I could thank (or blame) an AMV for turning me on to a new series. Maybe I already had my eye on that show for a while and just needed that extra nudge to finally go watch it, or maybe I had never heard of the show at all before an AMV came along and introduced me to it. A long time ago, Derek offered to let me write a guest entry here if I ever felt like it, and I decided it would be fun to take him up on that offer and share some of my favorite AMVs that have led me to try new anime.
Hey folks, Derek here – just wanted to thank long time reader and commenter WingKing for his work in creating the Lounge’s first ever guest post! (And hopefully not his last.) If anyone else is interested, hit me up via the Contact link. With that, I’m going to get out of the way – take it away Wing!
So grab your All Might action figure and get ready, because it’s time to watch some AMVs after the jump!
Bloom into You was… just wow this week, the strongest episode this week and arguably of the season so far. Tsurune finally premiers, and doesn’t wow me at all. All this and more after the jump!
We say goodbye to Titan as it goes on hiatus and to a couple of other shows as they hit the drop bin… But here was also some darned good episodes this week. Hit the jump and let’s chat!

Like most of us, I don’t obsess over stats. Doesn’t mean I don’t pay attention though. Checking them today (when I should be working on tomorrow’s post) I found pleasant news indeed. Sometime in the last couple of weeks, my total views and visitors for 2018 blew past the total for all of 2017!
Even more surprising… I was convinced that my output was down for the year. But with almost all of a quarter left to go, I’m closing in on last year’s total.
(And when I went searching, I did not expect to find an AMV using a disco era song… But there it is. So you get to watch an AMV rather than a disco era music video.)
Just for today, it’s an open bar here at the Lounge! Drinks are on the house!
Wow… it’s been a busy week… The rest of the season premieres, plus a bunch of shows start to expose their true colors in the second episode. And of course, we got Asuna in badass mode! It’s been a good week! Hit the jump and I’ll run down my week!

Welp, here’s the first batch – Run with the Wind, Reincarnated as a Slime, and Girl in Twilight. Hit the jump and let’s chat!

And so, the season ends… The fall picture from Yama no Susume is appropriate, as it’s both Fall (seasonally) and the Fall anime season is underway. (I think I’ve featured Yama no Susume as the head screenshot more than any other this season… but my love for the show is no secret.)
Anyhow, all the finale episodes are now in the can. Hit the jump and let’s chat about how they went!

Y’all now how my brain works by now… should be doing one thing (like working on the seasonal posts that are soon due), but it insists on working on something else. Anyhow, welcome to the first edition of Worth Watching – a new feature here at the Lounge exploring the world of AMV’s. More on that at the end of the post, first let’s hit the jump and watch some d_mm good AMV’s! Continue reading “Worth Watching – A new feature!”
Busy, busy week at shows set up for the final arcs and penultimate episodes! Hinata and Aoi reconcile, Harakuna gets amped up, and Hanebado is… well, once again Hanebado.
All that and more after the jump!
