Writing this because it is preferable to CAD dispatch planning. Logistics will make anime real. Them containers, man.

Winter 2016 Season Closing Thoughts

365868i7865

It’s been a long time, my dear few readers who still remain. To be straight, I’ve been struggling recently with a lot of things, and it seems I can’t find a peace of mind to write about anime, even though I am following the seasons the best I can. My normie years are now long gone and it doesn’t look like I’ll be leading a steady life until the middle age or so. But that’s how things go, life is a zero-sum game and sometimes you wind up below the red line. Anyway, here’s the past season in review.

A Complete Concrete Revolutio Timeline

header 1

Concrete Revolutio is a delight. It’s one of those rare shows that takes chances, is written well, and has the staff and budget to put its good ideas into practice. It’s a sprawling story of origins and conspiracies and relationships stretching over many alternate history years. But as much as I love the time-skips and constant shifts in temporal perspective, even I have to admit that there are times where it was easy to lose track or to fail to connect important plot points. But through a rewatch and copious pen-and-paper notes I’ve managed to help put everything into a better and more complete perspective for myself. So I thought I’d share. This post is a chronological outline of the major events of the show’s first cour/season. With the second half of the story about to start in a few days, I hope that you’ll enjoy this alternate recap and analysis.

Midseason Update: 6 More Weeks of Winter Edition

bokumachi feb

Yeah, well, despite what the local rodent says winter’s come back with a vengeance here in Pennsylvania.

So we’re about halfway through winter season and I haven’t sat down to compose anything longer than my periodic Twitter rants about why Gundam Tekketsu/IBO is so very, very bad. But fear not, for now I’m finally on it! Been a busy¬†month and a half relocating to my¬†once and future city of Pittsburgh but now that I’ve moved and done a bunch of riajuu things it’s time to get back to what matters. So, some quick thoughts on what I’m watching (and what I need to get to watching already. Sorry, Rakugo.)

Closing Thoughts on Gakusen Toshi Asterisk and Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry – The Final Duel

lga

For me, this season largely profiled itself through these two ridiculously similar shows that shared the setting, theme, genre, character types, plot structure, and even the damn broadcast time. Seeing how they measured against one another each weekend was probably the single most entertaining thing that happened outside Concrete Revolutio. But the question stands: Which one emerged victorious from this 12-episode slugfest? Let’s have a look.

Well, those golden days of being blessed every week with a fresh episode of Watamote are long gone, but at least Osomatsu-san put up a good effort by depicting what the merry ol’ Christmas is all about. Hold on to your butts, gents, it’s going to be fun for the whole family!

Fall 2015 Impressions Round-up and Watchlist

en voi hyvin 2

My “Group assignment” face at this point.

I guess I’ve sat on my ass for long enough. I underestimated how intense university life would be, and over the last few weeks I’ve seen projects upon projects piling up on my desk. Most of which are “group” ones, which means that two guys do the work, two others slack off, and one puts up a radio silence before delivering a pile of incomprehensible garbage 30 minutes before the deadline. They sure love to whip the freshmen around these days. But unlike in the summer, I’ve at least had plenty of time to watch stuff, so my list isn’t as sad as it was back then.
