Welcome to 2016, everybody! We may be a couple weeks into the winter season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still put out a belated first impressions and early Act 1 thoughts article! Instead of two separate posts, we’re combining them into one this time around, with Yata and Haru running down what we enjoyed or didn’t care for from the start of this year. Are any of the inevitable fantasy light novel adaptations watchable this season? Will pure CG ever be respected as a form of animation? And most importantly, does fan favorite ERASED meet the hype? Answers to these questions and more ahead on our early Winter 2016 Thoughts. Let’s do some animu justice, people!
Hey, folks. Summer may be rapidly approaching its end, but as far as anime is concerned, these summer shows are just ramping up for the homestretch. Yata and Haru are back again to bring you some updated thoughts on the summer season with two out of three months complete. We’re making do with what we have in this slim pickings season, and some stuff we didn’t think much of at first is proving to be surprisingly consistent. Who’s still going with what? And how is everything faring with one month to go? All this and more on our second mid-summer update!
Hey, folks. Summer was looking like one of the weakest anime seasons in recent memory, but Haru and Yata found a few things worth sticking with past first impressions week. With another month under their belt, how many will continue to make the cut this time?
(Hopefully a lot, because…)
By the way, although it’s been almost one year since this site’s inception, we’re still changing things up a bit and trying to work out some kinks. The midseason update articles used to be awkwardly titled with fractions, but it’s about time for that to change. At the moment, we’re going with this title format for future monthly updates, but if you have any suggestions, comment and let us know!
Yeah, so we’re a little late, but we’re back nonetheless! L-K’s been busy with stuff and Yata had limited time this week, so this will be a less extensive and less diverse post than our previous mid-season write-ups. You’d think we would get it out before now, but hey, such is life. No write-ups for Ore Monogatari or Punchline this week, though Yata is still watching them (and they’re both 5/10s for him). Again, sorry for the delay.
Hey, folks. It’s now May, and one month into the spring 2015 anime season, For Great Justice is back to bring you our thoughts on this season’s best, worst, and most irritably average shows. Long story short: start watching Blood Blockade Battlefront.
Just a note: this will be Yata’s last article for at least a month and a half, as he’s going to be moving halfway across the country to go to college and that will understandably take up a large amount of his time and attention. Haru and L-K will be back for the Second Third Thoughts article over this season at the start of June, and hey, who knows, maybe we’ll even do a mid-season podcast or two with the whole gang.
Anyways, spring! What’s worth keeping up with? Read on!
Another month, another time to catch up on the season’s shows with Yata and Haru. I think we can confidently say that this winter has been one of the better winter anime seasons in a couple years, with plenty of worthy fall carry-overs and an above-average number of fantastic new shows, many of which people are severely underrating. You tell ’em, Nozomi.
A couple weeks in to the start of 2015 as the year promises to be a busy but fun one, Yata and Haru are back to bring you updated thoughts on the season’s new anime and some enjoyable carry-overs from the fall season. Yata especially has plenty of catching up to do since he’s a chump and his schedule didn’t permit enough time to write up his conclusions on last season. That’s life though. Things happen…and sometimes things don’t happen, but this thing is happening. What are the frontrunners? What did we try to give a chance but drop? Let’s run ’em down.
Side note, we meant to post this yesterday, but the Super Bowl got us distracted, hence being one episode behind on Maria and Yurikuma. Bear with it.
Hey folks, it’s us again. I think we’ve decided to do these write-ups every three to four weeks or so, for what it’s worth. Now that the fall season has settled into its groove , Yata and Haru are here to run down how a handful of shows are faring. LK will show up eventually. Maybe. Who knows at this point? Oh, and we wish you a happy Thanksgiving and all that. Try not to overeat. Spend your time watching the great stuff you’ve been putting off for so long, and if your opinions happen to align with ours, fantastic.
“It’s the end of the first quarter and the Great Justices have a 14-0 lead over the Rest of the Anime Blogging Community. Spectacular touchdowns by this great duo.”
Not really, but it never hurts to dream, right?
Haru and Yata run down what they’ve stuck with past the season pilots, as well as address two shows carrying over from the summer season. Here are our thoughts on fall, one-fourth in.
