It’s interesting how many of my featured screenshots this season have come from either Iroduku or Tsurune… Probably because both shows keep leaving a deep impression each week.
Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s chat about those two and the rest of the shows I’m watching this season!

Whew! Two weeks to catch up on (again)! Sorry for the delay, but I had my hands full with the Thanksgiving holiday. (A full week of dancing on the culinary high wire without a net – I love it!)
So, let’s hit the jump and get right to it!

Well, on top of having a bit of writer’s block, last week was also my birthday… and I wasn’t going to push myself and struggle to get something out on my birthday. And then of course, the writer’s block persisted into this week.
So, this entry covers two weeks and is once again in the “grumpy old man goes for speed” mode… Sumimasen!
So, hit the jump and let’s run down the past two weeks and my mid-season thoughts on each shows. Any guesses as to which ones get dropped?

Is it just me, or did Iroduku get a whole lot better this week? (Not that it wasn’t good before!) All that and more coming up… So hit that jump and let’s dive into this week’s shows!

Of all the myriad ways I’ve been introduced to anime over the years, I recently found myself thinking back on the times when I could thank (or blame) an AMV for turning me on to a new series. Maybe I already had my eye on that show for a while and just needed that extra nudge to finally go watch it, or maybe I had never heard of the show at all before an AMV came along and introduced me to it. A long time ago, Derek offered to let me write a guest entry here if I ever felt like it, and I decided it would be fun to take him up on that offer and share some of my favorite AMVs that have led me to try new anime.
Hey folks, Derek here – just wanted to thank long time reader and commenter WingKing for his work in creating the Lounge’s first ever guest post! (And hopefully not his last.) If anyone else is interested, hit me up via the Contact link. With that, I’m going to get out of the way – take it away Wing!
So grab your All Might action figure and get ready, because it’s time to watch some AMVs after the jump!

Bloom into You was… just wow this week, the strongest episode this week and arguably of the season so far. Tsurune finally premiers, and doesn’t wow me at all. All this and more after the jump!

We say goodbye to Titan as it goes on hiatus and to a couple of other shows as they hit the drop bin… But here was also some darned good episodes this week. Hit the jump and let’s chat!

Like most of us, I don’t obsess over stats. Doesn’t mean I don’t pay attention though. Checking them today (when I should be working on tomorrow’s post) I found pleasant news indeed. Sometime in the last couple of weeks, my total views and visitors for 2018 blew past the total for all of 2017!
Even more surprising… I was convinced that my output was down for the year. But with almost all of a quarter left to go, I’m closing in on last year’s total.
(And when I went searching, I did not expect to find an AMV using a disco era song… But there it is. So you get to watch an AMV rather than a disco era music video.)
Just for today, it’s an open bar here at the Lounge! Drinks are on the house!
Wow… it’s been a busy week… The rest of the season premieres, plus a bunch of shows start to expose their true colors in the second episode. And of course, we got Asuna in badass mode! It’s been a good week! Hit the jump and I’ll run down my week!
