The Annual Anime Awards – 2014

Hey, everyone! Sorry we’ve been a little slow in such a busy time of the year. Instead of running down the year’s best shows on a show-by-show basis, we thought of something a little more unique. A little more flashy. A little more fun to do. Yes, that’s right, Haru and Yata have come up with 33 categories and brainstormed who and what deserve these prestigious (?) anime-related awards from the year 2014. There are a lot of repeated winners – after all, this is to recognize what we thought were the best of the best and the worst of the worst, and as the saying goes, the cream rises to the top.  We agree a lot, though occasionally we felt it necessary to deviate from each others’ opinions. Below are our award winners and explanations. Have a blast reading, and if you’d like, feel free to comment with your own winners.

HALFWAY THOUGHTS – FALL 2014

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 dangerous to go alone though. Take this:

First Quarter Thoughts – Fall 2014

“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.

First Impressions, Fall of 2014

Ah yes, the fall season of 2014 has begun and with that, a ton of fresh new anime for us to sort through. Seriously, this season is jam-packed with shows, and Yata and Haru have sifted through the vast majority of them. And this third guy, L-K? He will appear before us one day. He’s had his hands full figuring out this podcast thing for this season’s preview, which is sort of….late. But we’re still figuring this out and not everyone checked out the same things as one another, we’ll get there when we get there! Without further ado, let’s get going.
