Falling forward – looking ahead to Fall 2020.

2020 has been like a million years long, but summer is almost over… And that means it’s time to look ahead to Fall! There’s some potential to be had, so let’s hit the jump and run ’em down.

Worth Watching – Silver Spoon / Weird Al!

Between a regular commenter talking about the manga coming to an end, watching quite a few favorite episodes, and an upcoming Anime Playlist post… Silver Spoon has been on my mind the last couple of weeks.

So, because it’s what I often do, I headed over to YouTube to seek out AMV’s, and came across this gem:

I have to admit, this left me laughing. The maker matched the animation clips to the words really, really well. (They even matched the lip flaps.) Instant bookmark, instant fave, and I just had to add it to my Worth Watching list and share it here.

Give it a watch and enjoy!

As always, feel free to comment here, but be sure and let the original maker know if you enjoyed it.


Also a quick note on this/next week: This week is crazy with IRL stuff… We’ve got plumbers coming in for a leaky hot water heater, and I’ve got to take my van to the body shop because I dinged it up on a lamp post… And my wife has been on staycation, so I’ve not been that motivated to work on the blog. So, I’m going to be skipping this week and covering all the penultimate and finale episodes next week.

Also in work is the Fall 2020 anticipation post, hopefully a Looking Back post or two, and an Anime Playlist post or two.



Summer 2020 – Week 10 – Smokey skies edition

As if things weren’t crazy and stressful enough, this week turns it up to 11! Anyhow, I watched a few anime since my last post, and I’ll do my best to say at least a little about them…

Also, some surprising parallels between Sword Art Online and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Curious to know what you think.

Hit the jump, and let’s get to it!

Summer 2018 Week 8 – the open mic edition.

It has… been a week. What with one thing or another, it’s been a busy week. And I haven’t managed to finish my blog post… Which kinda sucks, given that I’ve actually managed to maintain my pace this season.

Anyhow, I am caught up through yesterday (Deca-Dence), so feel free to drop a comment with your thoughts on this week. My apologies, and I’ll be back next week, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!

Anime Playlist – Yuuki Yuuna franchise

Should be working on X or Y, but my brain wants to work on Z – an anime playlist post. Specifically, on the Yuuki Yuuna franchise. Fine, fine, it’s one I’ve been especially meaning to get to sooner rather than later… So, hit the jump and let’s get it going!

Asuna and Yuuki - Sword Art Alicization

Looking back – Summer 2015

Once again it’s time to look back at past seasons, pondering on what I thought then – and what I think now.  How many shows have aged like cheese, and which ones have aged like milk?

Hit the jump and let’s travel back in time to Summer 2015!

Summer 2020 – Week 5

Deca-Dence - Katsuragi's Reckoning
It’s been a week… But, we’re here again. It’s also the mid-season gut check, where shows that aren’t making the grade get tossed overboard. There’s really only one candidate this season, and anyone who’s been reading knows the show and it’s probable fate…

So, let’s just hit the jump and dive right in shall we? Continue reading “Summer 2020 – Week 5”
