The seasons change, the calendars change, and yours truly is also changing the way they write preview posts. I go through my top picks for the season, and why.
"December Sky really needs an hour or so more"
"it is not the kind of cerebral television you usually see, even if it’s tremendously good fun"
With most anime at their midpoint, I take a look at how each is stacking up (and try not to gush too hard!)
"The journey of Galaxy Express 999 uses the sheer length of the series to leave a genuinely important impact on its main character"
"while it doesn’t offer more than the ticket price, RobiHachi is a darn good time"
"This episode has other priorities, but it is a bit thin on character and story at the moment"
"feeling of intrigue bubbling beneath surface-level genericism"
"AXZ is constantly trying to tell two stories at once, but the more connected story is vaguely told and treated as an excuse"
"The only thing RobiHachi guarantees is the wildest of rides, and, with this much chemistry, it's a ride that’s absolutely worth giving a shot to"
