Farewells are never easy, are they?  And this week we say a fond goodbye to some shows, while to others we sigh with relief and go man, I’m glad that’s done with!

I’m trying to get each week’s cover screenshot be important and reflective of a show that week rather than just repeating a shot already used in the post…  And I think once you’ve read my review, you’ll agree with this choice.

That being said, let’s hit the jump and dive straight in!

For my vote…  this short sequence was probably one of the best , if not the best, all week.  Well, maybe other than basically the entirety of this week’s episode of 3-gatsu no Lion.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s run down what I think of this week’s new crop of episodes!

Everyone’s favorite grumpy old man anime blogger returns to shout at clouds once again for another week of insight, snark, and the occasional hot take!

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s dive into this week’s reviews!

Winter 2018 – Week 7

It has been one heck of a week.  Almost-but-not quite sick for two days (when I should have been writing).  Spent most of Sunday without power due to a windstorm and Sunday night and most of Monday in a hotel.  (No power means the apartment got too cold for our guinea pigs.)

All that and a dose of writer’s block – means an even shorter and less organized entry than usual.  My apologies.

Winter 2018 – Week 3

This week, in honor of yesterday’s Baseball Hall of Fame announcement, and because of a bit of writer’s block…  my reviews are fast hot pitches right across the center of the plate.

If an anime with a baseball scene is a classic, an anime blog that makes baseball references must be up there too!  Right?

OK, that’s the only tortured baseball reference I’ll make…  Hit the jump and let’s dive right in!
