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.]]>

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.]]><![CDATA[Report for the week of November 6-12, 2016]]>Sat, 12 Nov 2016 18:28:25 GMThttp://chanotaku.com/home/report-for-the-week-of-november-6-12-2016Anime 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.]]><![CDATA[Report for the week October 30-November 5, 2016]]>Sat, 05 Nov 2016 16:30:24 GMThttp://chanotaku.com/home/report-for-the-week-october-30-november-5-2016Anime 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.]]><![CDATA[Fall 2016, Report 1]]>Sun, 30 Oct 2016 15:44:41 GMThttp://chanotaku.com/home/fall-2016-report-1Very special to watch
1. March Comes in Like a Lion, episodes 1-4 (Very good) - I continue to really like it.

5. Occultic;Nine, episodes 1-4 (Decent) - Still messy, but it is starting to take shape.
6. Natsume's Book of Friends 5, episodes 1-4 (Good) - Still emotive and effective, more narrative driven.
