Yata’s 12 Days of Anime – 2015 – #11: Sequels and Fulfilled Potential

Screen Shot 2015-12-11 at 11.12.23 PM
Pictured above, Gatchaman Crowds Insight, Oregairu 2, Noragami Aragoto, and DRRR!!x2 all aired this year as wonderful sequels, on par with or better than their originals. 2015 in general was a pretty strong year for sequels, and not just because at least 5 or more seemingly aired each season. I always appreciate a quality sequel when it comes, but to have at least one each season rival or outperform their predecessor is a gift.

Fall 2015 Season Preview

Fall is coming. Prepare for pumpkin spice everything, spooky halloween things, and jacket weather. I couldn’t be more eager for the sweltering weather to end, quite frankly.

*ahem*

Hello everyone, this is Harubro! Unfortunately for us, and for you, the For Great Justice trio will not be able to assemble to record a podcast preview of the upcoming Fall 2015 season. L-K is off doing dastardly L-K things and Yatabro is neck-deep in his first semester of college. Kind of a shame, really, because we managed to tally over 1000 listens to our Summer preview podcast, which we were pretty stoked about. Worry not though, because your consolation prize is an *extremely* hastily thrown together season preview article written and delivered at the last second by yours truly!

Aren’t you all hyped up already~? (No? Too bad.) Let’s have a look at what I think looks watchable this Fall!

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.
