Fall 2018 – Week 10

Irodoku - Hitomi's Mother

It’s interesting how many of my featured screenshots this season have come from either Iroduku or Tsurune…  Probably because both shows keep leaving a deep impression each week.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s chat about those two and the rest of the shows I’m watching this season!

Fall 2018 – Week 5/6 & Midseason review

Tsurune - Teamwork - Episode 4

So, hit the jump and let’s run down the past two weeks and my mid-season thoughts on each shows.  Any guesses as to which ones get dropped?

Fall 2018 – Week 3

Bllom into You - Yuu accepts Touku

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!

Fall 2018 preview – This almost fits into a tweet.

OK, it’s not quite that bad…  But with everything else I’m working on I do have to admit to being sorely tempted to just leave it at that.

Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s take a look at my picks for next season.
