Winter 2017 – Week 12 Impressions

Considering how tragic and emotionally ingrained several of last week’s episodes were, week 10 took a turn for the uplifting. For some shows like 3-gatsu and Rakugo Shinjuu, it was the calm following a storm and the resolution of some of the show’s climactic moments. For other shows like ACCA, this week felt like the breath before the plunge. […]

The second season of KonoSuba reunites us with the familiar yet woefully incompetent band of adventurers from the first season as they continue in their endeavors to obtain a life of luxury.

Winter 2017 – Week 8 Impressions

Hey look, it’s another week of me actually being caught up on all of the shows I’m watching. Rakugo Shinjuu, 3-gatsu no Lion, and Little Witch Academia were certainly the high-points of the week though ACCA had a particularly strong episode as well. Kobayashi-san managed to combine the philosophical introspection of human ephemerality along with the passionate sentimentality of loving something in…
