AniFriday Issue #21: July 11th 2014 (it’s gonna be a very busy, very loud summer)

Oh man!  Summer season is here!  And like furniture store or car lot with a crazy owner, I’m trying to clear out all the old inventory as quickly as possible.  I should change the borders of my blog to wacky, wavy inflatable flying tube men to get the full effect across.  That said, I’m still enjoying what’s on my plate at the moment, even if I’m anxiously trying to get through it to move on to new projects.  I’m getting the feeling that I really will miss Tokyo Ravens and Chaika when I’m threw with both shows.  Each is showing more heart than I was expecting in their own unique ways.  Other shows I’m watching are only going further down the road towards their crazy realm of bullsh*t – I’m looking right at you Stardust Crusaders!  And other shows say they’re ending, but it really feels more like their last world tour, as opposed to their last concert, Bleach and Naruto – I’m now staring at both of you!

Here are the anime and manga I’ll be covering this week, in order:

  • Stardust Crusaders ep14
  • Tokyo Ravens ep20
  • Chaika the Coffin Princess ep6
  • Ao Haru Ride ep1
  • Hajime no Ippo chs 1055 & 1056
  • Naruto ch683
  • Bleach ch587
  • Team Medical Dragon ch106
  • Teppu ch5

AniFriday pt6 (December 13th 2013)

December 13, 2013 5 comments
 

Man, it has been a tiring week.  It’s not easy for me to keep up with all this anime.  And I can’t help but think I’ve brought this upon myself.  I mean, if I would actually not f*ck around and watch everyone of these shows consistently every week, then I wouldn’t have to worry about these long tiring “catch up” sessions.  Then again, there’s something to be said about the joy of watching a show in spurts like this, as if I were renting an anime DVD from Blockbuster or the old local video rental place back at home.  Ah!  Memories!

For now, I hope you guys appreciate the effort and attention to detail I’ve put into watching and analyzing these shows.  At this point in the season, and the year, I’m really learning to appreciate what has been a very interesting year of anime.  A surprising year.   And maybe even in this post here, that only covers mediocre to average anime I’m currently watching could have moments that are memorable, or that perhaps will last and reverberate forever throughout anime history.  It’s unlikely as hell, but it could happen.

This week I’ll be shaking up things a bit by adding manga to this AniFriday post, because… well because “why not?”  The name AniFriday doesn’t really mean anything, I can barely get these out on time, and I’m pretty damn sure someone’s already using the name Manga Monday somewhere.

Here are the series I’ll be covering in order of appearance:

  • Valvrave eps 18 – 21
  • Ms. MONOCHROME ep11
  • Tokyo Ravens ep10
  • Coppelion ep11
  • Naruto ch657 & 658
  • One Piece ch729 – 731
  • Bleach ch560 & 561

If anyone knows a way for me to link to different sections within a blog post to make this quicker, I’d appreciate it.  For now, enjoy the presentation! Read more…

AniFriday pt5 (December 6th 2013)

It feels good to get this done.  I survived bad and inconsistent internet, no internet, bad holiday driving, and a list of chores responsibilities and errands, just so I could get a chance to watch these shows.  It may seem a little too grand for the subject of watching anime weekly, but as a hobby, I take this surprisingly seriously.

Here are the shows I’ll be covering this week in order:

  • Tokyo Ravens ep9
  • Coppelion ep10
  • Ms. MONOCHROME ep10
  • Valvrave ep17
  • Kyousougiga ep1 Read more…

AniFriday pt4 (November 29th 2013)

Here we are.  I’ve finally made it back to the world of blogging anime and animu for fun and hobbies.  And it feels good to be back and productive.  For this week, I’ll be a bit more focused on fewer anime, as I’m in the process of making up for a three week deficit on multiple anime.  Here are the anime I’ll be covering in order of appearance.

  • Tokyo Ravens eps 6-8
  • Coppelion eps 7-9
  • Ms. MONOCHROME eps 7-9

Fear not, there’s more to come.  And that includes Valvrave as well.  For now, let’s see if these three shows are still worth watching. Read more…

I’m expanding AniFridays and making a few changes as well.  Ars Nova will get the weekly single blog post treatment from now on (hope I don’t regret that), while Valvrave is now joining the AniFriday group.  Also I’m adding Hajime no Ippo: Rising and Gundam Build Fighters (since people keep asking me if I’m watching it) to the group as well.  Hope you guys enjoy.

This week’s anime in order of appearance.

  • Valvrave ep16
  • Tokyo Ravens ep5
  • Ms. MONOCHROME ep6
  • Coppelion ep6
  • Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova ep5
