Anime watched: This was a busy week. I rewatched The Vision of Escaflowne with the new Funimation dub. This show is definitely a classic. And while I admire its ambition, general production values and stunning backgrounds, I continue to not like Escaflowne enough to want to buy a physical copy. I also had time to watch Hundred, which is a cliche action/harem-y title, but I enjoyed it.
Anime watched: I rewatched Code Geass with my Funimation BD's. For a while I have heard that this anime is dumb and not any good. I disagree with that, but in this last rewatch I saw more flaws in the writing. Still, Code Geass remains one of my favorite animes. I also had time to watch the second half of Kuromukuro. And even though it has some nice moments, the conclusion was disappointing.
Anime watched: This was yet another slow week, but I finished checking out the new anime series that most interest me. I should post my lineup for Fall tomorrow.
Anime bought: Funimation's CE BD set of Code Geass.
Anime watched: Another quiet week. I want to be busier next week and hopefully find exciting Fall shows.
Anime watched: This was another relaxed week. Some of my simulcasts have ended already, and I am starting to look forward to the Fall season.
Anime watched: This week I rewatched Sound of the Sky. This is a very special show for me, and the moe, occasional existentialist stuff and atmospheric production values continue to hold up well. I also had time to watch High School Fleet. And it is a cute girls doing dangerous things show that starts bland, but it improves over the course of it.
Anime watched: This was mostly a light week, but I did have time to watch Castle Town Dandelion. And it is not a good show, but it has some charm and touchy moments.
Anime industry: Of course the big news is Crunchyroll and Funimation forming a digital and physical distribution deal. It is too early to see how this can change things within the North American anime industry, but I hope things work out in a positive manner for all involved.
Anime watched: This was a very busy week. I watched the two seasons of Chaika: The Coffin Princess with the English dub. And, like with past rewatches of other series, I like Chaika even more than after my first watch. It is not a spectacular anime, but it is solid all around. I also watched my DVD copy of Chuunibyou REN with the English dub; my attitude towards it remains pretty much the same.
Anime bought: Sentai's BD of Chaika Avenging Battle and Sentai's DVD of Chuunibyou REN.
Anime watched: There is not much to report because I did not watch any full series this week, but I did finish watching Barakamon with the English dub. I like most of the characters from Barakamon, and the premise is fun, but I still don't like it enough to want to own it on disc. I plan to return to my regular weekly reports next week.
Anime watched: I apologize for the belated report; I had internet issues. Last week I watched Kurokami. This time I noticed a few more problems than in my previous watches. I also dropped it down in my like rankings a few spots. Do not give me wrong, I still like Kurokami a lot. I am even planning to buy the Sentai BD release because the Bandai Entertainment BD's I own were kind of badly authored. Also, today I watched my BD's of Blood Blockade Battlefront, and I keep being in love with it.
Anime bought: Funimation's Limited Edition release of Blood Blockade Battlefront.
