I discovered this is very specific a moe point for me.
Lately I’ve been kind of avoiding my computer unless it’s during my two days off on Wednesday and Thursday. For the rest of the week, if I can’t watch it on Crunchyroll on 360 (though dang I really wish they had an Xbox One app) then I don’t watch it. I also can’t watch any Funimation stuff because the app isn’t available in Canada.
It does make writing this post a little difficult (and that’s why the Summer post was so delayed) but hey, that’s just how it is.
This is a bit different from the norm since in the end I only watched two other shows besides Tokyo Ghoul and that one got a big rant. Ao Haru Ride could have got a big rant too because it was bad but EH.
SATB 22 is coming early next week because I’m lazy.
There is one sports series I really, really like. Chihayafuru. I love Chihayafuru. I haven’t yet read the manga but perhaps I will, one day, when it finishes. Assuming we’re living in the very sad world where a third season really doesn’t happen.
This is perhaps the opposite of Chihayafuru. In terms of sports and main characters.
Well Chihaya is a josei and this is a seinen so there are those differences there and even ignoring the different sports, Natsuo and Chihaya are total opposites.
But I brought that series up for a reason. I thought it was interesting that the two sports series I ended up liking feature two unconventional sports. Keep your cycling and basketball manga, I’ll take the good karuta and mma stuff.
Me when realizing how dumb this show was.
Tokyo Ghoul gets it’s own special post because it was just too long to fit in the regular final impressions post. Which is weird because I didn’t really have any strong feelings about this show. Then the ending happened and everything before that was meaningless to me. Now it’s just trash.
I think I went into this expecting too much. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great. Not as great as I had hoped, anyways. As someone who has visited the 人外×少女 tag on pixiv for a long time (and as expected there is a TON of this series in it now), I thought the idea of a series that was this tag embodied would be pretty awesome! So I guess that’s just why my expectations were so dang high.
But hey I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt. Nine chapters isn’t very much, after all.

I won’t do this for each round but it’s just that I normally do predictions before hand and I didn’t get a chance to this year. So I figured I would wait.
So far this year hasn’t been super thrilling, mostly thanks to
shit Saki. Nico and Honoka were knocked out in the first round which was a shocking party upset but thanks to the stupid Loser’s Round, they’re right back in again (more or less). And plus my Saimoe hopeful lost by one vote so really why do I even CARE.
But whatever, I’ve been paying attention and here’s what I’m thinking so far.
