Hey guys, here’s an unusual Cloudy Says but today I wanted to talk a bit about the winter season in general. This season throws us a pretty unusual selections of anime in general and after watching quite a few of the pilot episodes and dipping my toes in a variety of genres (some genres that I don’t even usually touch) I think I can safely say that this isn’t going to be a really high point season for me.
Sure there are tons of great additional seasons coming out for a lot of the pre-existing series and franchises, however in terms of new series, a lot of it falls short and many series won’t be getting as much attention due to popular hype over shows like Kuroko no Basket, Durarara and Tokyo Ghoul (all well-deserved hype) I might add.
So I thought to myself, what should I do this season? Should I focus more on manga? Or hauls? Or rants? Perhaps photography? But before I make any final decisions for this upcoming season I’d like to touch base with all of you who are following my blog or watching my videos… what new shows are you guys watching?
My current anime series include… Death Parade, Absolute Duo (tentatively depending on the fan service), Binan Koukou Chikyuubouebi Love (for the hilarity), The Rolling Girls, iDOLM@STER, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, Shirobako and Akatsuki no Yona (reviews currently backlogged due to new series). You guys already know where my tastes generally lie judging from previous seasons and the list above.
Now, if there’s any new shows that are awesome that I might have missed, please let me know in the poll and also remember to vote for what series you’d like to see reviews or videos on since there are two polls below…
January’s been a pretty hectic and crazy season for me. I flew back from Hong Kong and immediately had exams after I returned to the UK… not to mention that the second academic term for me starts literally the day after my exams finish…
As a result I dropped behind on a few pilot impressions which I apologize for missing some or posting late. However, I did realize that many of the series just didn’t particularly jump out at me. Some are too ecchi for my taste or the art style differs from my usual preferences. If all goes well throughout the season, you guys can probably expect Manga Mondays to return because I am REALLY trying to plan in more time for manga. I know I say this a lot but this season I am really going to make those MM videos come back. It’s always on my mind after all… Aside from that, one video will be coming every week ehh sometime during the week whenever I find time between all my commitments to school and extra-curriculars.
Once again, the blog post will be updated regularly and as frequently as possible because I am foremost a blogger I think… and blogging does really help me unwind. Aside from that, thank you all for checking in with me for this month’s update and I will talk to you guys very soon in my next video or blog post.
What are you pondering today?
