Anime Sunday: Winners of 2018

 

This week for Anime Sunday I’m back with a post that is very overdue. It’s my Winners of 2018 post.

TenSura: I loved the original Web Novel of this series, and seeing it animated on screen was a real treat. It had awesome pacing, excellent voice acting, awesome animation although not quite at ufotable level of quality, and an excellent plot. If you haven’t given TenSura a try yet you really ought to give at least the first few episodes a chance. You’ll most likely be very pleasantly surprised.

Emiya-san: I’m always a sucker for Fate adaptations, but the fact that this is a non action oriented series that had some of my favorite characters of all time just eating good food and that it’s animated by my gold standard studio ufotable were what put Today’s Menu for the Emiya Family on this list.

SeiButa: I found this series to be rather interesting, with just enough supernatural to pique my interest and keep it. The fact that the romance doesn’t stray into the dreaded typical Japanese Harem with a dense MC scenario (like Nisekoi, Love Hina, or any of a number of other series) was just icing on the cake.

That’s it for this week’s Anime Sunday, and I’m sorry this post has been so overdue.

Anime Sunday: Winners of Fall 2016

Merry Christmas everyone! This week for Anime Sunday I’m taking a look at the past season. It’s my¬†Winners of Fall 2016!

3-gatsu: This was a really awesome¬†series that goes into how it feels to be depressed, and it’s not even over yet! We still have another season to go through.

Yuri on Ice: This series really pushed the boundaries on Anime, and it had some amazing choreography animation. If you are getting praised by actual Olympic ice skaters you must be doing something right.

Shuumatsu no Izetta: This was a great take on the second World War, plus I’m all for having badass female leads.

Honorable Mentions:

Keijo: Keep on pushing that envelope Japan. Maybe the rest of the world won’t be so prudish if you keep doing it. Or not, still this was amusing if only for the GIFs I kept seeing on Twitter.

That’s it for this Christmas edition of Anime Sunday, next week it’ll be a new year and I’ll be looking ahead at the upcoming season.
