Whew! Made it – last day of the year, last post for this season. As usual, the finales are a mixed bag. Some good, some OK, some… well, frankly, meh. Hit the jump and let’s run ’em down!

Fall 2018 – Week 3
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!
