Just for fun, each season I look back four years to see what I was watching back then and talk about what I thought of it then and now. Since it’s Winter 2019, that means it’s time to look at Winter 2015 and cringe (or not) at what I watching way back when.
Hit the jump and let’s travel back in time to Winter 2015!
The Quintessential Quintuplets is easily one of my favorite shows this winter. With a charming cast of characters and its own enjoyable twists on the classic harem formula, it’s tailor-made for fans of romantic comedies. Not to mention anyone who enjoys shipping wars, because the series reveals in the first scene that our main character, Futaro, will marry one of the five Nakano sisters, and actively encourages viewers to pick sides. Of course, we don’t know yet which lucky sister will capture Futaro’s heart, because what fun would that be?
To help untangle this romantic Gordian knot, I present my objective, utterly unbiased, and strictly scientific analysis of each sister’s chances of becoming the lucky bride, along with some bold predictions for how their stories will end, win or lose!
Disclaimer: this is based entirely on the first seven episodes of the anime, and contains mild spoilers for those episodes. I haven’t read the manga, but I intend to start as soon as the anime is over.
Had a bit of writers block last week… But fully expected to spend the last few days getting caught up. I mean, we were going to be snowed in, what else did I have to do with my time?
Turns out that being snowed in (which up here is virtually never more than overnight or a single day) for four days isn’t as much fun as it sounds…
Either way, I’ve been remiss in writing and posting and didn’t want to go any longer without saying something. Plan is to work instead on next week’s Mid-Season gut check and overview (already in work) to get back in my groove. (I have really had a hard time hitting my stride this season.)
Anyhow, I’m caught up through Wednesday on my viewing schedule, so feel free to drop a comment and let’s chat!
Aahhh! Week three, most shows are starting to hit their groove and/or make their big reveals. It’s also the week of the (in)famous “Three Episode (or Madoka) Rule”… (I should write more on that one day.) That’s when a lot of folks decide whether or not they’re going to stay with a show.
Given the choice between ever-increasing stress because I’m late… or pushing out something that’s not quite complete… I’m going with the latter on the principle that if “no publicity is bad publicity” then “no blog post is a bad blog post”.
That being said, let’s hit the jump and dive right in!
