Archive for the ‘Spring 2017’ Category

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.

So I am working on reviews from last season, but it’s very on-off, not helped by varying distractions (Dark Souls 3 DLC, card games, Persona 5 soon enough, etc.). It was a good season though! Rakugo S2, Gabriel DropOut, Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, the end of 3-gatsu no Lion (S2 hype!), and the starts of Little Witch Academia and KiraKira Precure A La Mode!

This season has actually already started, so I’m a bit late to the party on this (it snuck on me – technically speaking, the winter season hasn’t finished yet!), but aside from the first episodes of arguably the 2 biggest shows of the season there’s nothing much to talk about. Something tells me that this will be a season with few real surprises, mostly because the most anticipated shows are sequels and thus represent a somewhat known quantity.

And on that note, here’s what I’m picking up:
