So, let’s hit the jump and take a look!

Everything changes… – Winter 2021 Week 4

Last of the third episodes this week…. And on their third or fourth episodes, many shows either upset applecarts or double down on their narrative. (And yes, a couple of shows earn a third episode drop.)

Hit the jump, and let’s see what happened this week!

Summer 2018 – Week 12/13 Finales

Encouragement of Climb - Two good friends
And so, the season ends…  The fall picture from Yama no Susume is appropriate, as it’s both Fall (seasonally) and the Fall anime season is underway.  (I think I’ve featured Yama no Susume as the head screenshot more than any other this season…  but my love for the show is no secret.)

Anyhow, all the finale episodes are now in the can.  Hit the jump and let’s chat about how they went!
