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.
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!
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…
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…
