Wrapping up the spring season with part 2 of my (shorter) reviews! In part 1, I covered Uchouten Kazoku 2, Anonymous Noise, and Tsuki ga Kirei, which were fantastic if unfocused, forgettable with some good moments, and surprisingly beautiful in turn. This time I’ll be looking at arguably the two biggest series of the season, one of which had started in the winter – Little Witch Academia and Attack on Titan 2.

These will be a little longer than last time as there’s more to talk about – especially in Attack on Titan 2’s case – but they still don’t come anywhere close to my 3000+ word review of the original Attack on Titan!

I’m trying a new review format out! Instead of lengthy, analytical essays I’ve decided to go for something hopefully more concise and to the point. Honestly, the long ones were wearing down on me, becoming some massive obligation in my head that took too long and stressed me out – especially when I only really wanted to convey a couple of points or a few feelings about a series. So now I’m just getting to the point! I’m worrying less about justifying everything I write and instead just capturing the core of my perspective.

So let’s get started! In this first post for the spring 2017 season, I’m looking at Uchouten Kazoku 2, Anonymous Noise and Tsuki ga Kirei.

OK, I lied.

I said winter season reviews would come out, and then they didn’t. I would say blame Persona 5 (a perfectly valid target) but there’s more to it than that.

I simply don’t have the time, energy and enthusiasm for the long-form reviews that I used to. And I worry they’re getting formulaic or whatnot. So for spring, I’m going to be trying something slightly different: I’ll be creating posts collating 3 or 4 (depending on season size and how much there is to say) concise reviews in them, instead of the detailed analyses I have been doing. Because I do still want to share my thoughts on feelings on what I’ve watched, but not 1500+ words worth at a time. Hopefully the reviews will come out more focused and to the point too!

So we’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, here’s what I’ll be picking up for the summer, which has actually already started even if I haven’t watched anything yet!
