My notes & votes – the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2018 – part 3/3

It’s that time of year again! Crunchyroll is asking us, the users and viewers, to choose what anime are worthy of awards in a large span of categories. I thought I’d write up what I’m voting for and why for your amusement.  This post covers the third group, which we’ll be voting on next week (02/05-02/11).

A quick update!

Just a quick note to let folks know what the next week will look like…

  • I’m still plugging away on my season review for last season (Fall 2017).  It’ll be late, but by gum I’m determined to actually get one out this season. Look for it over the weekend! (He says, crossing his fingers.)
  • Considering the overall schedule, it looks like Wednesday is still the best day for my weekly post.  So, look for a post next week with the balance of the Winter 2018 premieres and the second episode of everything else.
  • However, I don’t want to be a week behind on A place further than the Universe like I was on Konohana Kitan last season…  So for the balance of this season, I’ll be bailing early on my usual Tuesday social night so I can watch it with my lovely wife.  (Watching it without her is only an option in extremis.)
  • One week, I will end up a week behind because I’ve still got the Tuesday late night photoshoot coming up.  (It keeps getting postponed due to weather.)
  • The Yamato 2199 Groupwatch post will still be on Friday.

Thanks for reading, thanks for being patient!

A quick post to wish everyone a happy New Year and to look forward over the next week or so…

  • The normal weekly Wednesday post will be delayed until Saturday or Sunday for two reasons:
    • I want to include the YuYu finale.
    • If the weather holds, I’ll be out very late Tuesday night on a night photography shoot with the photo club. We’re planning on light painting a lighthouse up at the north end of the County.

This is an experimental light painting I did a few years back:

If you click through on the photograph there’s more about my process and tools.

  • Depending on how things go, I should have a Winter 2018 anticipation post up Wednesday or Thursday

In closing a New Year’s Eve haiku I wrote a few years back:

final breath
witching hour tolls
new year

Happy New Years!

Fall 2017 – Week 9

Well, here we are…  Most shows moving into their final arcs and starting to build towards the climax.  Some are doing their own things, but that’s OK too.
