I know, I know… Theoretically I’m on hiatus from weekly postings, but I couldn’t resist a few observations.
Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) Season 3 Part 2 – Episodes 56-57
After 56 episodes of waiting, we’re finally in that d*mm basement… And what we find there is like nothing I could have ever imagined. My head is still reeling over all the implications. Two very interesting ones: First, there’s now a potential second claimant to Historia’s throne. Second, the name of her friend/protector in the Scout Regiment takes on some interesting significance.
Fruits Basket continues to be a basket of feels each week. How does it manage to accomplish in a few minutes what other shows would take a week or two to build up to?
Senryu Girl (Senryuu Shoujo) Episode 11
Each week I just fall in love with this show all over again… Part of it is Nanako, but I have to admit to sneaky admiration for Eiji’s characterization. Like this week, when the doofus completely misses the import of putting a ring on her ring finger! The show has made it abundantly clear he cares for Nanako, so he’s not the typical oblivious anime protagonist. He’s just clueless and dense in an endearingly clumsy way.
Any thoughts? Feel free to share them down in the comments!
I wouldn’t say the Queen is one of my favorites bands, but I do enjoy a great deal of their music. And of course, it’s always fun to combine two things I enjoy.. So, as promised when I posted the Maid Dragon AMV, here’s a collection of anime AMV’s that use Queen for their music.
This should be fun and different! A little while back, there was a thing going around on Twitter about making a Bingo card with your favorite anime theme songs… And I’ve decided to turn it into a bit of a contest here at the Lounge.
There’s a ton of Boku no Hero Academia AMV’s out there, almost all featuring Deku, or Bakugo, or Todoroki. When she is the subject, Ochako is almost always paired with Deku and it’s all about the shipping…
This is patently unfair. As we saw in the second season, she’s a person in her own right with her own motivations and goals. That’s why I’m pleased as punch to share this AMV, which puts Ochako Uraraka right where she should be – front and center in her own story.
As always, feel free to comment here or there… If you enjoyed this AMV, be sure and drop by the video’s page on YouTube and support the creator by giving a like or leaving a comment.
Honestly, I think it’s time to pull the plug on weekly coverage this season… Ever since my hiatus (due to family emergency) back at the beginning of the season, I haven’t been able to get my feet under me… And after the press of a busy holiday weekend and the upcoming Medieval Faire the prospects for doing so before the end of the season look increasingly dim.
Not to worry though! I’m not going anywhere. I’m going to spend the time working on some feature content… I’ve still got this season’s Looking Back post, some tag posts I’ve been meaning to get to forever, and a five part special to finish. (Which I think you’ll like!) I also have a long awaited update to my anime playlist post.
I’ll be busy and I won’t long be absent from your screen. Look forward to it!
