Winter 2020 – First Impressions – Part I

Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! - YAY!
What is it they say…  New Year, New Me?  Meh, not so much.  Still the same ol’ me, tendency to procrastinate and all.  But we do have a bunch of new anime coming down the pike, and that means it’s time to hit the jump and take a look at the first batch of premiers!

Anime Openings of 2019

It’s the second anniversary of my anime music playlist post… So it seems the proper time to give a modest update with the songs added from shows that aired in 2019.  Probably the closest I’ll come to a “year in anime” post.  (I’m not even trying any “of the decade” posts.)

Fruits Basket - Choosing the onigiri!

So, let’s hit the jump and look at the winners! Continue reading “Anime Openings of 2019”

A Bright Sunshiny Day! The Sunshine Blogger Award


I don’t know why I haven’t answered the many times I’ve been tagged before…  some silly reason or another.  But I felt like writing, and two bloggers have recently tagged me, so I decided to stop being silly.

Anyhow, you know the drill, hit the jump and read my answers to the questions asked of me!

Worth Reading – 10/31/2019

Cowboy Bebop - Spike Spiegel.png
New rule for Worth Reading – five entries, or end of the month, whichever comes first.  By the luck of the draw, I hit both about the same time this time around.

Somehow, I also ended up with what I think is a nice thematic collection too.  Can you guess what it is?  (I’ll reveal it at the end.)

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

Fall 2019 – Week 2ish

Getting restarted is hard folks…  But I’ve managed to write a little about each of the shows I’m watching this season.  Some great, some good, some… not so much of either.  (I mean the shows, not my writing!)

Without further ado, let’s hit the jump and dive in!

Fall 2019 – First Impressions Part I

Bananya and the curious bunch
And now it’s the post you’ve all been waiting for!  Time to run down the first batch of new shows and try to sift the gold from the mud.  And honestly, so far, it’s hard work as there really isn’t much to work with.  We’ve got far too many isekai, and far too little originality.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s run ’em down!
