Summer 2014 Anime: Halfway Impressions

20140606-212920-77360868

Summer’s really been flying by for me, and before I knew it, the halfway point for the summer anime season came by.  I guess maybe it’s not my place to say summer’s gone by too quickly since a lot of people are going back to school around this time (the perks of going to college now I guess?) but I will say the months have gone by far more quickly than I’d anticipated, and with them a whole bunch of new anime too.  Don’t enjoy the thought of some of these ending, though there are quite a few that are either two-cour or split cours so I still have a good amount to look forward to for some of these.  In any case, this season has proven to be pretty enjoyable with some series that display a lot of potential.  At the moment, I would say I enjoyed spring season’s more personally and I expect the fall anime to surpass these if they manage to live up to my expectations, but depending on how these stories progress they too could become something fantastic.  I think it’s too early for me to make any decisive conclusions about most of these series but here is my opinion on the ones I’ve been keeping up with this season: Continue reading

Spring 2014 Anime: Final Thoughts

It seems the spring anime season has pretty much come to an end, as all of my one-cours have finished and all but one of my two-cours have reached the halfway point.  For the most part I’d say the spring season was an enjoyable watch, and while there were some series I found to be pretty disappointing, there were also many others that proved to be phenomenal watches and I can definitely say that I was entertained by quite a few of the ones I watched.  Considering I have an insanely huge backlog (which, given the fact that I have Anime Expo and a trip to Japan ahead, will take a very long time to get through), it will definitely take me a while to actually get to the individual reviews for each of these series so I’ll try to give a good idea of my opinion on each one.

Spring 2014 Anime: Halfway Impressions

Oh dear, it seems that it’s already been almost a month since I made my last post.  It’ll be just a bit more before I can get back to the regular schedule of posting what I’ve wanted to for a while, but since I’ve actually picked up a pretty decent chunk of the anime this season, I figure it wouldn’t be such a bad thing to give my thoughts on what I’ve watched so far.  I would definitely say that I’ve been enjoying the spring anime and 2014 looks very promising.  While I feel the greatest of the year is still ahead, the anime from this season have been very enjoyable and there’s still lots of potential for development and improvement.  There are some that I’m not all too fond of, but for the most part I’d say this is quite a good season.  As of now, however, my thoughts are as follows: Continue reading
