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. […]

Winter 2017 – Week 9 Impressions

All things considered, this was a pretty big week for some of this season’s front runners. Rakugo Shinjuu delivers on yet another emotionally climactic episode, 3-gatsu sees the Lion King Tournament come to a dramatic and sentimental close, and ACCA pulls back the veil and reveals some of its innermost workings which have remained hidden for so long. Little…

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…

Winter 2017 – Week 7 Impressions

Whereas last week generally offered more of the same, week 7 featured a handful of pretty significant developments and even a few bombshells between Rakugo Shinjuu, ACCA, and Little Witch Academia. Demi-chan came off a little plain with its most recent episode though still featured its usual insight into the societal implications of its characters. Youjo Senki took a week…

Winter 2017 – Week 6 Impressions

For the first Wednesday in a while, I’m actually current with everything I’m watching! With the midpoint of the season effectively upon us, I think I can safely say that the Winter season has been more entertaining than I had initially thought it would be. Though I have to imagine at least some of that is…

Winter 2017 – Week 5 Impressions

Somehow I still have yet to catch up on Little Witch Academia despite it being one of my favorite shows of the season but there was plenty of other stuff to recap. All of the seasonal front-runners continued to put up strong performances and some even climbed to new highs with their most recent developments. For the…

Winter 2017 – Week 4 Impressions

I have yet to establish a clear-cut method of which shows I’ll be recapping each week but there’s no way I could get to every show I’m watching. For the time being, I’ll just be writing about episodes that stuck out to me with some mainstay shows like Rakugo Shinjuu, 3-gatsu no Lion, and ACCA. I haven’t been able…
