Winter 2019 – Weeks 4/5 – the time skip edition.

Had a bit of writers block last week…  But fully expected to spend the last few days getting caught up.  I mean, we were going to be snowed in, what else did I have to do with my time?

My car on Tuesday…

Turns out that being snowed in (which up here is virtually never more than overnight or a single day) for four days isn’t as much fun as it sounds…

Either way, I’ve been remiss in writing and posting and didn’t want to go any longer without saying something.  Plan is to work instead on next week’s Mid-Season gut check and overview (already in work) to get back in my groove.  (I have really had a hard time hitting my stride this season.)

Anyhow, I’m caught up through Wednesday on my viewing schedule, so feel free to drop a comment and let’s chat!

Winter 2019 – Week 3

Aahhh! Week three, most shows are starting to hit their groove and/or make their big reveals.  It’s also the week of the (in)famous “Three Episode (or Madoka) Rule”…  (I should write more on that one day.)  That’s when a lot of folks decide whether or not they’re going to stay with a show.


How did this week fare for me?  Did I drop anything?  Hit the jump and let’s find out!

Worth Reading – 01/26/2019 – Your Name, Yorimoi, and more… 

Kimari on the edge of her great adventure!

Lots of good stuff this week!  It’s pretty much impossible to sum up in a simple cover blurb, so I’m not even gonna try.  (Yeah, that’ll get you to the article won’t it?)

Let’s hit the jump and take a look at what’s Worth Reading!

Winter 2019 – Week 2

Given the choice between ever-increasing stress because I’m late…  or pushing out something that’s not quite complete…  I’m going with the latter on the principle that if “no publicity is bad publicity” then “no blog post is a bad blog post”.

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

I know, I know, I’ve been remiss in getting these out regularly but here in 2019 I’m making a push to get more feature content out.  And in this issue of Worth Reading we have some really good stuff.

So, let’s hit the jump and take a look at what’s Worth Reading!

The wordpress anime awards 2018: Ladies and Gentlemen, the results are in!

The fans have spoken and we have listened! The results of the first ever WordPress Anime Awards are in!

Honestly, I’m surprised and pleased at the broad range of shows represented. Some were the ones I suspected, others were a bit of a surprise… But it does show that anime fandom isn’t monolithic and does like a broad variety.

Of course, it goes without saying that I’m pleased the fans recognized Yorimoi! :)

Anyhow, check ’em out and let me know your thoughts down in the comments!


Hello everybody,

What better way to start the year then with a look back, or more precisely the results of the first ever anime awards that were held on WordPress. After a careful selection by a wonderful group of performers: Cactus Matt, Derek Lyons, Marthaurion, Matt Doyle, Jon Spencer, Karandi, Star & Luna, BiblioNyan, Lethargic Ramblings, Ano Nora, Ty-chama, Mech Anime Reviews, itsaanimething, and myself, our intrepid ringmaster the great and wonderful Ayano presented all the categories to you in this  amazing post. After that all of you voted for your favorites for which we all thank you so much! But alas, the carnival closed at the stroke of midnight on december the 31st 2018. However, the carnival has one last trick up it’s sleave, and that’s presenting you with the results of your votes. Before…

Just for fun – my anime viewing history, 2018 version

I posted the first version of this graph back in 2017, and just on a lark decided to update it.  It seemed I watched an awful lot this year, but the numbers don’t lie…  This was actually a pretty slow year compared to some others.

If you keep track (I know not everyone does), what do your numbers look like?

Fall 2018 – Week 12 / Finales

Whew!  Made it – last day of the year, last post for this season.  As usual, the finales are a mixed bag.  Some good, some OK, some…  well, frankly, meh.  Hit the jump and let’s run ’em down!
