Summer ’09 Anime: Last Call


Oh god, I’ve been letting Expo Expo dust over. D:  All the series that aren’t continuing on into the fall season are over now,  and I think Summer ’09 was one of the better seasons for a large quantity of quality shows, which is in stark contrast with the “meh”-ness of the current fall shows.  Spoilers ahead obviously…

Anime Update: Rough Draft Style

Spring 2009: The Good & the Okay


Somehow this season feels slumpy to me.  There are a bunch of good shows but not in a way that leaves me pining for the next episode.  It’s more like “That was enjoyable, I’ll watch more of this when I don’t have anything else to do.”  On the other hand, I’m always ready for the next Eden of the East episode.  But maybe I’m just burnt out from almost ten years of anime. Anyhow, these shows are well-done, but each have little quirks that personally distract or bother me.
