Winter 2018 – Week 12, the week of endings and farewells

Farewells are never easy, are they?  And this week we say a fond goodbye to some shows, while to others we sigh with relief and go man, I’m glad that’s done with!

Yamato 2199 Group Watch – Episode 20

 

Episode 20 – Under a Rainbow Sun

Screenshot (475)This was… one hell of an episode.  One hand, it was a spectacularly directed and animated space battle.  On the other, something much more….

Hit the jump to find out what that is!

Winter 2018 – Week 11

I’m trying to get each week’s cover screenshot be important and reflective of a show that week rather than just repeating a shot already used in the post…  And I think once you’ve read my review, you’ll agree with this choice.

That being said, let’s hit the jump and dive straight in!

Hope Springs Eternal – Anticipating Spring 2018

I used the same title last year…  But what the heck, it’s only once a year, right?  Hit the jump and let’s chat about the upcoming season and what I’m planning on watching!

Yamato 2199 Group Watch – Episode 19

 

Episode 18 – They’re Here

Screenshot (450)Not an action filled episode, but a prelude to the action. Not much happens in some ways…  But it’s filled with interesting character moments, and brings past threads and events into the current context.  Most importantly, it’s setting the stage as 2199 moves towards its climax.

Hit the jump and let’s take a look!

Yamato 2199 Group Watch – One Week Pause

Screenshot (443).png

My deepest apologies, but I’m going to have to take a break this week.

Last night, one of our guinea pigs spent the night at the vet’s in intensive care…  We adopted Miss Molly mostly fully grown in April of 2012, so she’s getting pretty close to seven years old.  That’s pretty old for a piggie (80-85 in human terms?), and her health is increasingly frail.  With the problems she’s already having, last night was pretty scary, I didn’t sleep well, and my head isn’t exactly in a place for creative work.

Hopefully she comes home today (watch my twitter for updates), but the future is increasingly cloudy.  (Not helped by having another pig with inoperable cancer.)

Yeah, probably more than you wanted to know, sorry.

Anyhow, the short version is that it was one h*ll of an action packed episode…  Scott’s review, linked below, covers all that pretty well.  Hit the link and give it a read!  There’s some stuff I want to talk about, but I’ll add it to next week’s post.

Winter 2018 – Week 9

Screenshot (426).png

For my vote…  this short sequence was probably one of the best , if not the best, all week.  Well, maybe other than basically the entirety of this week’s episode of 3-gatsu no Lion.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s run down what I think of this week’s new crop of episodes!
