Mostly about the weekend, but also about anime.

Omake Gif Anime - Demi-chan wa Kataritai - Episode 13 [BD] - Summer Festival Fireworks.gif

Wow – the 4th of July holiday has really messed up my writing schedule.  My lovely wife took most of Monday off, which made it essentially a four-day weekend.  We got a ton of much-needed chores done (yay, new bookshelves in the bedroom!) but we also had fun and ate well (YAY! for having a new grill!!).  The best part was the strawberries…  Fresh from a local farm, we served them over homemade cheesecake and made strawberry ice cream.

Nothing matters but the weekend 
From a Tuesday point of view…

 

But I digress…   We’re caught up on premiers and I plan on getting out my first overview post today or tomorrow.  The Atom finale is this weekend, so Mon or Tues I’ll get the final post for Spring 2017 up which will also catch up other ongoing shows.  I’ll also be talking about the special ep of Demi-Chan which aired over the last weekend.  (If you haven’t seen it, Crunchy has it, go watch it!  It’s very good.)  The season wrap-up post should follow shortly thereafter.

Other digressions, and also some stuff about anime, after the jump.

Spring 2017 – Week 12

Two finales this week, plus all the continuing shows!  Lot’s of thought on Re:Creators too.

Let’s hit the jump and talk about this week, and what’s upcoming with the season change.

Spring 2017 – Week 11

A busy, busy week in anime…  The final arcs of the season are in full swing, and most shows have turned it up to 11.

One of the fun things this week – seeing and writing on Bakugo’s character.

Let’s hit the break and see how the week went!

Spring 2017 – Week 9

Still a little behind after the rush and madness of the Faire last weekend…  But I managed to watch and write up the majority of the shows.

Hit the jump and let’s dive in!

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

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!

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…

Spring 2017 – Week 4

As usual for this point in the season, many shows are wrapping up their first arc or presenting the characters with their first serious crisis.  Hit the jump and let’s take a look at how the week went!
