Episodic Observations

This page is still under construction and will slowly have material from older seasons added to it.

Here I will cross-post my thoughts on episodes as I watch them, some have proper write-ups interspersed with random observations made throughout the episode. Some organization is present in some, but these aren’t write-ups written post-episode and thus are less formal. More recent seasons are at the top.

2014:

Summer

Most shows will only get first episode notes, a couple more post-episode only. Next to no full-episode notes this season.

Akame ga Kill! – First Impressions and focusing on style.

Aldnoah.Zero – Full notes or post-episodic.

Barakamon – First impressions

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei!  – First impressions, heavy on slice of life moe and prettiness.

Glasslip – First impressions, standard P.A. Works romance drama affair. 2nd episode mini-editorial.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal / Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal – Bi-weekly. Post-episode only? We’ll see.

Shirogane no Ishi: Argevollen / Silver Will Argevollen – First impressions only for now.

Sword Art Online 2nd Season – Editorials, random notes? We’ll see.

Tokyo ESP – First impressions, and post-episode notes, for now.

Tokyo Ghoul – Horror show, might get post-episodics on a semi-regular basis.

Zankyou no Terror / Terror of Resonance – Full notes, probably.

Spring

There’d be considerably less notes this season, mostly first episode impressions or post-episode notes. Edit: That was the hope.

    HxH please. I found it got really good after the first or second season, where actual plot and characterisation started happening… And all the epic antagonists start appearing.

      Well, even if I watch it, no way am I getting through so many episodes with episodic notes, were I to watch it it’d be 4-10 episodes at a time, and zero notes :P
