July’s Year of Anime entry is finally here! Excuse the mess, a lot has been happening. Princess Jellyfish seemed like a good entry for the summer, and while it delivered, it also has a ton of little criticisms and comments that I didn’t anticipate when I took it on. Let’s look into them!
September has started which means new beginnings for my Year of Anime project! I’ve developed a pretty good roster if I do say so myself. This year’s YOA project was surprisingly successful — I mostly kept up with my own plan! Here’s to another year of that. I’m doing something a little different and offering some thoughts on this past iteration of YOA, as well as a few highlights.
Welcome to a belated June Year of Anime entry! I’ve wanted to watch this show for a while since it was mentioned in a class, and this was the year to sit down and do that thing. The Tatami Galaxy has some interesting things to offer on the animation and narration side of things, so let’s see what that’s all about— a little reviewlysis, if you will, but what else is new.
I’ll be honest, I put Lucky Star on my list entirely because of its opening theme, which took over forums, conventions, and memes. I’m pleased to report that this silly slice of life show offered much more to me than I could have hoped, so enjoy a little appreciation for a job well done!
April’s Year of Anime entry came at the cost of whatever flimsy defense I had against secondhand embarrassment. Watamote is painfully relatable in ways I wasn’t expecting, very cringey, and dare I say even enlightening at times. Let’s get another reviewlysis going!
Ok, buckle up for a very passionate and detailed look at March Comes in Like a Lion! This anime hit me extremely hard when I first set out to watch it, and since Episode 1 I’ve been itching to get going and review it. Get ready for some analysis and overall thoughts!
Catching myself up on January’s Year of Anime entry, here’s Gankutsuou! I’ve heard this name thrown around a few times for its style but other than that, I went in almost completely blind. Turns out this adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo has a lot more to it than just style. Mesdames et messieurs… maintenant à l’analyse!
Here comes December’s Year of Anime entry! Welcome to the NHK has always been described to me as a classic, but I wasn’t sure what to expect from a show about a shut in, or hikikomori. Luckily, Welcome to the NHK has a LOT for me to chew on, and I thought I’d take the time to do so here. While my overall thoughts on the show are going to pop up, this review will mostly analyze what makes NHK so special, so consider it a reviewlysis!
