Fall 2020 – Week 5/6 – The mid season gut check issue.

The last week has been… tumultuous to say the least. I try and keep the outside world separate from the blog, but that’s not always possible. Either way, it’s the middle of the season, and that means it’s That Time. What time? Hit the jump and let’s find out!

Worth Watching – Silver Spoon / Weird Al!

Between a regular commenter talking about the manga coming to an end, watching quite a few favorite episodes, and an upcoming Anime Playlist post… Silver Spoon has been on my mind the last couple of weeks.

So, because it’s what I often do, I headed over to YouTube to seek out AMV’s, and came across this gem:

I have to admit, this left me laughing. The maker matched the animation clips to the words really, really well. (They even matched the lip flaps.) Instant bookmark, instant fave, and I just had to add it to my Worth Watching list and share it here.

Give it a watch and enjoy!

As always, feel free to comment here, but be sure and let the original maker know if you enjoyed it.


Also a quick note on this/next week: This week is crazy with IRL stuff… We’ve got plumbers coming in for a leaky hot water heater, and I’ve got to take my van to the body shop because I dinged it up on a lamp post… And my wife has been on staycation, so I’ve not been that motivated to work on the blog. So, I’m going to be skipping this week and covering all the penultimate and finale episodes next week.

Also in work is the Fall 2020 anticipation post, hopefully a Looking Back post or two, and an Anime Playlist post or two.

As if things weren’t crazy and stressful enough, this week turns it up to 11! Anyhow, I watched a few anime since my last post, and I’ll do my best to say at least a little about them…

Also, some surprising parallels between Sword Art Online and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Curious to know what you think.

Hit the jump, and let’s get to it!
