1. A full year of suspensions

    In the time-honored tradition of never dropping anything, but suspending series forever, there were more in the year since Flying Witch fell flat on its face.

    Planetarian: Seen 3. It's very short, but it's basically the suffering porn, like Grave of the Fireflies, which I dropped 2/3 in too …

  2. Comic Girls

    What do you watch when nothing else goes on? There's always a CGDCT nowadays. And for an empty season's fodder, Comig Girls do not disappoint (h/t DiGiKerot). I just wish they didn't make poor Kaosu to cry so much. Her self-doubt and imposter syndrome are familiar and even endearing …

  3. Death March kara

    In the past year or so, my intake of anime was trending down steadily, being displaced mostly by the isekai manga. I literally went to a pirate scanlation site and searched all manga with "isekai" in the name, as well as "dorei", "tensei", collected the results, and been busy reading …

  4. Uma Musume 01

    Remember how bloggers said that we had cute Producer and cool Producer, and we needed a passion Producer? We have one now, albeit in a wrong show and called "Trainer".

    When Trainer was checking Special Week's thigh muscles, he should've also checked her heart and lungs. A missed opportunity!

    Silence …

  5. ReLIFE OVA

    Thanks to a passing notice at Smug, I was made aware of the 4-episode OVA that came out for ReLIFE. It includes the rest of the story, and by necessity it is quite terse: it covers more manga than the original 13. For example, the disappearing money part was cut …

  6. Tsurezure Children

    There wasn't much to blog about this, but most importantly -- it was good: a very nice and proper adaptation of the outstanding manga. The art was just as good as the original. They cut out some of my favourite couples for the lack of space, but I can understand that …

  7. The Thin Slicing is back!

    After several lackluster slicings, Jason kicked it out of he park:

    Pop Team Epic is the Millennial divide anime. Seems like the more Millennial you are, the more you’ll like this show while the more Gen X you are, the more you’ll scoff as this being a homeless …

  8. Ishii's Airplane

    I'm watching Girls Last Tour 06 and one thing bothers me about Ishii's airplane: it's far too large for the mission. She wanted to have a range of 2,000 km, or about 1,080 nautical miles (nm). But that is a range well within reach of a relatively basic …

  9. Draggle on Hakumei to Mikocchi 01

    Remember the much-anticipated adaptation that Ani-nouto called? It is out and someone is disappointed:

    I found this extraordinarily boring. I was hoping for something like Strange Dawn, but nope. It’s a barely animated kids show about little people getting along well with each other. Zzzzzz...

    At this point it's …
