This week I returned to my routine and watched a lot of anime. I first watched my recently purchased BD's of Gurren Lagann. I do not love this show as I used to, but I still really like it; I especially like its energy. I then rewatched SNAFU TOO!, but I did not like it as much this time around. Finally, I had time to watch The Great Passage, which to me is now the best anime series from 2016.
After an almost one month long hiatus I have caught up with my simulcasts from Fall 2016. I also took at this new weak Winter season. And because of that I am only following seven shows that hopefully will retain my attention throughout the season. I should be able to rewatch something this upcoming week, and I should also do a write up of the 10 best anime series from 2016.
Anime watched: This week I decided to give A Certain Scientific Railgun another shot. I ended up watching the two seasons, and even though some thhings were not that well made, I liked the show overall and felt satisfied. I kind of want another anime season made.
This will be my last post for a while because I will not be able to blog for the next few weeks. My next post should be the final report for the Fall 2016 anime season.
Anime watched: This week Crunchyroll added some dubbed titles, and I decided to check Please Teacher! out. It turned out to be a pleasant title. After that I wached Please Twins! It was less solid and enjoyable, but the ending was satsifactory.
And idiot me realized that I did not do a weekly report for last week. I actually rewatched one of my favorite shows in Darker than Black. And I will say that it continues to hold up for me. I still wish there was more anime of it made, but I doubt it is going to happen.
Anime watched: I finally watched Anthem of the Heart, and I liked it enough to have bought a BD copy of it. It is a movie made from the creators of Anohana, and I definitely saw the similarities and overall vibe. I watched my Funimation's copy of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, and I was more satisfied with it than the first time I watched it. Finally, I started watching my Viz's copy of the first half of Sailor Moon S; I am enjoying it so far.
Anime watched: This week I rewatched Toradora! And yep, I love this anime. I had a great time watching this very special title, and I am so happy it has an English dub. I still consider this series to be hands down the best anime romantic comedy and possibly the best school-centered anime.
Anime watched: This week I watched one of my most beloved anime series in Anohana. Its themes and emotions probably resonated more within me the first time I watched this show (some five years ago), but I continue to really like it and enjoy it. I also considered watching the follow up movie, but the series left me pretty satisfied.
I do not have anything really important to report this week.
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.
