The year is over and done, and with it came a lot of great and not-so-great anime. Although I was not able to watch everything, I would like to talk about the different ones I managed to see. However, this list is too big, so Part 1 will be for Winter and Spring, and Part 2 will be for Summer and Fall! Hit the jump to find out my thoughts on everything I watched for Winter and Spring of 2016!
Well, time for the last article of 2016! With 30 minutes to spare! This article is about a manga-turned-anime that I had just found out had become an anime about 5 hours ago. Watching the first few episodes, not only do I find it more entertaining than I figured, but also a very romantic and dramatic take for an unrequited love between two girls. More after the jump!
I don't typically do more than one article on a particular subject, but this is one I've thought about for a while. Being the apparent highlight of the season for most people, Yuri on ICE!!! continues to captivate others in its final episodes. Unfortunately for me, the anime has gone from decent to sub-standard. But one of its saving graces is also a point against the anime, and that is Yuri Plisetsky just being a more interesting character than Yuri Katsuki. More after the jump.
It's pretty common in the world of anime critique to see shows that are obviously bottom of the barrel.

Not only that, but it almost became not terrible. Find out just how after the jump.
Welp, had this blog for a couple months, time to get a little ballsy. One Piece, compared to the other two of the Big Three, seemingly has more going for it. Unfortunately, that lends to a lot of people considering it to be unfaltering and perfect. While I do like the show, I can't help but notice the nuances and problems that persist with this juggernaut of a series. Read how after the jump.
One of the heavy hitters for this season comes in the form of Yuri!!! on ICE. The tale of a men's figure skater fighting to be on top again, Yuri Katsuki finds his way with his new superstar coach Viktor Nikiforov. So what do I think of it? It's...pretty okay, and pretty gay. More after the jump.
With a new Anime season comes new heavy-hitters and continuations. Also what comes with it is the trademark totally-not-porn show that sneaks its way into the season. Fortunately "Keijo!!!!!!!!" is a stupid, honest, and surprisingly enjoyable not-porn show with a good deal of action and laughs. More after the jump.
