Funomenal First Impressions: Anime Season Summer 2016

Trying out a new jam for this season: instead of having a two-parter half-season overview, I will write up a first impression post one week into the season and pick out a few shows worth talking about for a condensed half-season overview. As for the end-of-season write-ups…I’m not sure about them yet, since I tend not to complete shows on time before another season starts up.

I will be adopting the overview’s rating system, but for the first impression, only shows that I have made clear conclusions for will be given a rating.

Now, with the introduction out of the way, these are the shows I’ve taste-tested thus far.

Bonus Commentary: Fall 2015 titles that didn’t make the cut

Hi again, people.

It pains me to admit it, but I’m just one man, helming an entire blog and its gigantic promises of entertaining and insightful content. There’s also the issue of me being a relative new-comer to the world of anime and Japanese media (a disease; so to say; that infected me, whilst I’m still weak from a heavy dosage of year 12 finals exams and university enrolments at the tail end of 2014). There will be a life story upload on that, on a later date.

(Actually I do…this Senpai NEEDS to get noticed)

Like I said, Fall 2015 is a season dominated by sequels of well-known franchises, many of which I’ve never consumed before in my life. Add the ever-present issue of my personal tastes (another blog topic potentially in the pipeline), there’s bound to be popular titles that I failed to follow and analyse, or dropped from this season. So I figure I will add a little commentary on some possibly notable shows, that I didn’t cover in my initial Fall 2015 overview.

But first, some disclaimers: By no accounts, were all these shows avoided, missed or dropped because I thought them to be either shit to begin with, or not worth my precious time on this planet (I don’t think that way). The more likely reasons are of course, stated above.

Well then, without further ado, let’s punch in some letters.Read More »
