Check-in Station Year in Review: Spring 2013 (Where the Biggest and Best Come to Play)

January 9, 2014 4 comments

Welcome to the wonderful Spring season!  The season of juggernauts –  literally!  The more I heard about this season in previews, the more excited I got.  The Spring season was the reason I still looked forward to watching modern, new anime.  So without further hype and hyperbole, I’m gonna tell you the story of the Check-in Station’s journey through anime’s Spring of 2013.

Check-in Station: Mid-Season Review (Spring 2013)

This has been quite honestly, my most successful season since I started blogging.  I’ve watched several anime before, but I wasn’t attempting to write about all of them on an episode by episode basis.  Even better yet, I used to just watch a series in bulk.  I’d either get a DVD or find a batch of files and watch until I got tired, or I ran out of material.  The only time that ever backfired was when I was watching the original Code Geass (why would they have a six month break between episode 23 and the end of the series?!).  Now I’m watching seven (maybe eight) series at the moment, and their pretty much all to the halfway point.  So instead of doing a “Check-in” post on all seven, I’m gonna give the run down for the majority in one post, right here.  That way I can get on with whatever other projects I’m working on at the moment.

Now then, let’s get started.  I’ll do this in whatever random order I choose.  I will not be assigning score or rank.  I will just be assigning opinions. Read more…

Railgun season 1

It’s funny how I have the hardest time talking about shows I love, at least in this format. it’s like I’m afraid that I can’t be objective or something. Or maybe A Certain Scientific Railgun is just one of those shows I have trouble explaining my enjoyment of. The original series actually aired right around the time I started this blog (Hey, I have a history! Cool!). And embarrassingly enough, I didn’t have much to say about it, even though I absolutely loved it. Sure, many thoughts came to mind afterwards. Thoughts like how when the show stayed on task, stayed focused on the source material it was damn fun and riveting. But when it didn’t do that it was borderline boring and tedious. I loved the silly, yet still intense detective work. I loved the fights that would give the X-Men a run for their money. And I enjoyed the characters most of all, especially the polarizing Kuroko. Oh how I could have a chance to restate my feelings initial feelings on that series. Well now that we have Railgun S, I can try again. Think of this as my redemptive attempt to portray my love for Railgun. Read more…
