Overreactions – Week 10 Winter 2016

(Weekly Review)

 

  Thanks to my being in vacation this whole week, even something I normally do for fun–writing about anime–seems monotonous. However, I started these weekly reviews as a goal of writing on a scheduled weekly basis, and since there is only 3 weeks left in the winter 2016 anime season it would be silly to toss a self imposed rule to the side in place of a blank mind free of the stresses brought on by the many obligations of my everyday life… Oh dang, I almost just talked myself out of writing this.

 

We can only work with what we got, and we’re all prisoners of the moment here so let’s overreact!

Overreactions Week 6 Winter 2016

Mini Anime Reviews

 

  My lists of shows I am watching has really transformed throughout the season–just as it usually does. Half way through the season I am usually pretty set, which I think I finally am now. I have dropped what I’m gonna drop, and I have scoured the poles to see if any shows I didn’t start at the beginning of the season are worth my time. After seeing what Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash as well as KONOSUBA – God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World have been doing in the polls, I have decided to give them a shot. So far I have really been impressed with what I’ve seen. Both have a similar setting (probably the most popular setting there is right now) but go in entirely different directions, and both do what they are trying to do fairly well.

 

  We’ve now burned through half the season for most the shows so I feel I can say this is a fairly average season. So far one has stood head and shoulders above all other shows, but there quite a substantial amount of legitimately good, not great, shows this season. So far on MAL 36% of the shows are rated 7+, 13% are rated 8+, and only 2% are rated a 9+ (in other words only a single show!)

Overreaction:  Good lord ERASED is good… It is taking every fiber of my being to not search out the source material to this show! I just want to know the whole story so badly! Especially with the announcement that the Manga is about to come to a conclusion. As bad I want it, I will not deprive myself of this exciting ride ERASED has been taking me on.

Overreactions Week 2 Winter 2016

Overreactions

 

   The Winter 2016 Anime season has hit the ground running setting the tone for what looks to a another promising year! There’s something for everyone this season. Whether you’re into magical high schools, wild fantasy worlds, or epic time travel mysteries!

   OK… I might be way too positive/optimistic seeing that it’s only two weeks into the Anime year, and I might be full of it when I say that the year looks promising but hey! I’m only human right!? While there are a couple really promising original and anti-trope shows this season, most of what we have is what is to be expected. Shows built around Fanservice and the same old anime routines…
