Worth Watching – Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid / My Best Friend

Miss Kobayashi and Tohru
This lovely AMV popped up in my YouTube recommendations yesterday – and I just had to share it as soon as I could.  Just today I’ve watched it about three times, even when I should have been doing other things.

Heavy on the feels, and with the video very nicely synced to the audio, it’s very definitely Worth Watching.  I especially like the fast cuts during the drum parts right before the refrain – inspired!

My notes & votes – the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2018 – part 2/3

It’s that time of year again! Crunchyroll is asking us, the users and viewers, to choose what anime are worthy of awards in a large span of categories. I thought I’d write up what I’m voting for and why for your amusement.  This post covers the second group, which we’ll be voting on next week (01/29-02/04).

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!)

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…

Winter 2017 Week 5

Another week in the life..  Some shows progress, some regress, others tread water.  Demi-ChanMiss Koyabishi, and Konasuba were especial delights.

All this, and a look at the first episode of Cyborg 009: Call of Justice after the break!

(The opening to the 2001-2 series, one of my favorite series and favorite openings.)
