Fall 2018 – Week 5/6 & Midseason review

Tsurune - Teamwork - Episode 4
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?

Guest Post: The AMV Made Me Do It

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!

Fall 2018 – Week 3

Bllom into You - Yuu accepts Touku

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!

Fall 2018 preview – This almost fits into a tweet.

OK, it’s not quite that bad…  But with everything else I’m working on I do have to admit to being sorely tempted to just leave it at that.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s take a look at my picks for next season.
