Winter 2017 Final Thoughts

Welcome back, everybody! Spring’s already encroaching on the end of the winter season, but when it comes to jotting down some thoughts about anime, we’re better late than never. It also couldn’t be helped that Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid didn’t wrap up until a couple hours ago, so while we’re kinda down to the wire here with the seasonal overlap, what would be the point if we didn’t include all that we enjoyed? And what a surprising season it was, with several speculative picks taking off strongly, a couple solid sequels under its belt (2017 truly does look to be sequel heaven), and even our first 10/10 rating in about 2 years. What took that crowned spot? Where did everything else we watched stack up? And most importantly, what’s already contending for the most ridiculous surprise of the year? Kick back and read on as Yatahaze, Catche, and Harubruh run down their winter 2017 final thoughts.

Winter 2017 First Impressions

Hey everybody, welcome back to For Great Justice. Coming off a strong fall 2016 season, there seemed to be one thought front and center as the anime community approached the start of the new year:

“Ugh, this looks bleak.”

And while for the sake of getting some kicks, we’re bound to agree with that to an extent, there are also some gems in the rough this season worth keeping an eye on. The rest of the world may be entering a scary, unforeseen era which has partially inspired an ongoing scandal within the anime-osphere too, but here at For Great Justice, things remain the same as ever. Below, Yata writes far too much, Haru watches stuff but isn’t able to jot anything down in time, L-K is still floating in the aether somewhere probably, and newcomer Catche makes his return. This first impressions round-up is a bit slimmer than usual, but the world’s mitigating circumstances and a generally below-average season seem like worthy explanations. What’s worth watching? Read on and find out!
