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 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.)

Winter 2017 – Week 1.5

Why week 1.5?  Well, I’m planning on posting each Monday, and after posting the last of the premiers last week I don’t want to wait a week and a half before posting week two and I wanted to get a few more premiers out of the way while they’re fresh.

So, hit the jump and let’s dive in!  Be sure and let us know how your week in anime went, the Lounge is much more about you than it is about me.

Note:  Crunchyroll is still not entirely functional…  wasn’t able to watch any shows Saturday or Sunday night.  They said, a week ago, that they were being DDOSed – but nothing since.  These leaves me behind on a couple of shows I’d hoped to talk about this week.  (And I need to get this written and posted so I can get on with housework… we had a busy weekend and the kitchen is a wreck.)

Winter 2017 – First Impressions (Part 1)

Well, now the first five shows of the season under my belt…  and things are shaky so far.  Two immediate drops, one meh, and two that might not be entirely bad.  Not a promising start, but there’s more premieres to come so I have hope.

See more after the jump, then let me know about your season so far down in the comments.
