I wish I could say this blog wasn’t dead, but working life has left me a dried husk of a man I used to be and I struggle to find energy for any pastime activities. But I have been keeping up with the season the best I could, and here are the results.
I’m way behind the times yet again as the Spring season has already started, but here’s a wrap-up of the past Winter.

That’s it for the x girls doing n things comedy duo. These two played a significant part in keeping at least a bit of my sanity intact while riding my soon to be trainwreck of a career. Lately all I’ve been hoping for is falling into a coma and waking up in September when this hell is finally over. Nothing good has ever come from following ambition, but I just don’t seem to learn that lesson. Thank god I still have my Japanese animes.

I live blog! The last season of 2016 saw me watching the least amount of any season I can remember. Moving back to my once and future(?) adopted hometown of Pittsburgh has made 2016 a great year for me, even as the world outside lights itself on fire. And part of that has meant some less time for anime lately, and I fell below the amount of shows I’d like to keep up with this last season. That said, I don’t think there were any contenders for my Top 5 list in the winter season anyway. For me, this year was fairly front-loaded in terms of the shows I enjoyed the most. But a few others deserve mention too.
Girlish Number was along with Flip Flappers the most entertaining show in the past season for me. But I already wrote a good deal of what I had to say about the show some weeks back, so for starters let’s have a little review.

I wasn’t sure what to expect of Stella no Mahou exactly, because its setting had promise to take on at least three different paths: Light school club comedy, a healing type cute girls coding games and eating cake, or a more down to earth depiction of doujin game production using elements from the former two. Turns out the show itself wasn’t too sure either.

I was actually hoping it would keep going a little longer, but all good things come to and end, like my sister’s marriage. Mahoiku seemed like a poor man’s Madoka attempt, but turned out to be among the most entertaining shows on my seasonal list along with Girlish Number and Occultic Nine.
