Spring 2017 – Week 8

Despite being busy, I did manage to catch up on most shows, and even managed time for a couple of mini marathons.  (And dropped one show and added another.  I never learn.)

Once again, I have way too much to say about Sakura Quest…  I know I said I’d take a break, but it keeps giving me so much to chew on.  I even say some nice things this week!

So, let’s hit the jump and talk about this week!

Spring 2017 – Week 7

clannadx1

My apologies, but there’s not going to be a post this week.  Not to worry, I’m alive, healthy, and caught up on everything but SukaSuka.  But a crazy busy week last week, a busy weekend, and writer’s block yesterday and insomnia last night left me hopelessly behind.  (OK, to be honest, I often procrastinate – and this time it bit me in the butt when I hit a roadblock and ran out of time.)

I’m posting because the goal this season is to not drop off the face of the planet like I did last season.

The next two weeks might also be a bit thin.  We have plans Memorial Day Weekend (we traditionally spend it geocaching).  The following weekend, I’ll be taking part in the Kitsap Medieval Faire which will essentially be four straight long days Thurs-Sun.  (But I get to hang out with my fellow history and culinary nerds!)  So both weekends, it’ll be a bit rough to stay caught up, let alone get any writing done.

Drop a comment, let me know what you think of your shows this week!

Some favorite anime scenes.

Some while back, there was a meme going around on Twitter where folks were listing off their top ten anime episodes.  I decided to make a full entry here at the Lounge instead, and somewhere along the line it morphed from favorite episodes into mostly favorite scenes.  So it goes I guess, once you start writing you never know where the Muse will lead you.

Anyhow, hit the jump and take a look.  Let me know what your favorite episodes and scenes are down in the comments!

Spring 2017 – Week 6 and some midseason musings.

So, what do we have this week?  A little more on Sakura Quest vs. Shirobako (and why I think Sakura has improved greatly this week).  Some thoughts on which shows stand where at midseason.  (Time for the mid-season gut check!)  Plus the usual weekly thoughts on what I’m watching…

Spring 2017 – Week 5

A day late between getting distracted by various things and not being well on Monday (the day I normally do the bulk of the work on my weekly entry), my apologies.  That being said, let’s hit the break and see what happened with various shows over the last week…

In the Background – Tomoya’s Figures.

Last night, we were watching the latest episode of Saekano and the figures on the shelf behind Tomoya’s shoulders caught my eye.  Because I’m currently avoiding the writing I should be doing, I took screenshots of them and identified all but one….  To make an excuse for wasting the time, I wrote up a blog post!  :)  :)

Anyone care to chime in and identify the Figure In Red?

Mystery solved thanks to WingKing!
