Totally not Aoi-chan.  We swear.

Anime News Miscellany – 3/30/17

Three (anime related) things that happened yesterday and which I wrote up brief commentary on while not working on my season summary.  Fortunately, Maid Dragon is stretching into next week so I can justify giving myself a few more days to work on it.

After the jump, Ghibli, Gundam, and Amazon…

Nausicaa

Hope Springs Eternal… Looking forward to Spring 2017.

A new anime season is like the opening of baseball season.  There’s a great feeling of anticipation.  Every show you’ve looked forward to is excellent.  There’s no disappointment…

With that in mind, hit the break and let’s take a look at the shows I’m anticipating in the coming weeks.  (And a few thoughts on how I’m going to blog the upcoming season.) Continue reading “Hope Springs Eternal… Looking forward to Spring 2017.”

Winter 2017 – Week 12. The finales begin…

Well… a busy, busy week as we swing into the penultimate and final episodes of the season.  Some shows close out strong, other just slink across the finish line…  and a couple just drop out of the race entirely.

Hit the jump and see what I thought, then let me know your thoughts down in the comments.  (Really the comments aren’t just about responding to me, they’re all about you and what you think!)

Rebuilding…

img_2001_1

Accidentally deleted my customizations yesterday, and didn’t realize it until this morning…  When I was restoring them I took the opportunity to fiddle a bit with the look.  (Specifically, I’d never changed from the default font and hadn’t really realized how awful it looked.)  I still have to repair some bits (like the links), but the sidebars are back.

What do you think?

Anyhow, thanks to the helpful Happiness Engineers at WordPress I also now know how to preview new themes without deleting my existing one.   Hopefully in my abundant spare time, I’ll get a chance to faff around with some new themes and develop a better look…  I picked this theme in kind of a hurry and I’ve never really been actually happy with it.

Speaking of abundant spare time, time to stop fiddling here…  There will be a lack of happiness in the domestic section of the Lounge if I don’t get the kitchen cleaned up and the potato salad for tonight’s dinner started.

Winter 2017 – Week 11, getting caught up, some thoughts on 3-gatsu no Lion, season finales.

With the insane go-go-go seven evenings in a row behind me, and despite Crunchy once again misbehaving on weekends, I’m mostly caught up.  This week, catching up on weekly series, some thoughts on March comes in like a Lion, a little bit about my non-anime hobbies and why I’m only caught up on shows my wife and I are watching…

So, fresh cup of coffee at hand and my animusic channel playing on Pandora, let’s get right into it.

March-01

Winter 2017 Week 9 – Gomenasai!

Got busy, didn’t have time to watch let alone write, and so missed a week…  Then was mostly caught up, but didn’t want to write because I wasn’t caught up…  around and around in self-reinforcing cycle.  Bad.

Gomenasai!  I should have at least posted a note or something, and will do so in the future.  You the reader can’t discuss weekly if I don’t post something each week.

Anyhow, let’s get caught up up and move forward…
