AniFriday Issue #19 (June 27th, 2014): Chaotic Neutral vs. Neutral Evil

 

Had to adjust my AniFriday schedule a bit, even if it meant pushing back the post a whole week.  I just couldn’t allow to call this series AniFriday, and all my posts go up late on a Saturday night… Damn you JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure!  But I won’t dwell on that.

I will say, it feels great to be in a groove with a couple of series again.  Tokyo Ravens is fun as hell, Chaika is damn near my favorite thing to watch right now, and even though Stardust Crusaders has been a little stale for a bit in my opinion, it’s still better than most shounen battle material I’ve watched or read this year.  As for the manga, I’m pretty much hyped for everything except for Umi no Misaki, and you’ll see why.  I don’t know what it needs more of.  Perhaps more tits and/or plot – wait!  That’s the same thing isn’t ?!

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

  • Stardust Crusaders ep12
  • Tokyo Ravens ep18
  • Chaika the Coffin Princess ep4
  • Naruto ch681
  • Bleach ch585
  • Hunter X Hunter ch342 – 344
  • One Piece ch750
  • Team Medical Dragon ch105
  • Umi no Misaki ch6

AniFriday Issue #15 (May 23rd, 2014): Victory Through Anti-Hype

I dare say that I’m almost getting back on schedule.  I may be two days late posting this (killing my thought out defense that it’s Friday somewhere when I post these), but at least I’m almost regularly watching anime and reading manga now.  I’m still in the process of figuring out where I’m at in regards to the current anime world though.  In the process of doing this, I’ve tried taking up a little show called Captain Earth.  Let’s see how this goes, because I’m not exactly in the mood for a super robot show right now.

AniFriday Issue #12 (February 14th, 2014)

February 13, 2014 1 comment

It’s been a little bit more than rough past couple of weeks.  So I have to be honest.  I havne’t been much in the mood for anime.  All I’ve craved is peace and quiet.  Instead, it feels like there’s a chaos demon following me around.  Still, I haven’t given up.  I may be terribly behind on my anime, but I haven’t given up.  Instead, I’ve focused on taking time out of my day  to read a little manga.  So forgive me if this AniFriday is not only late, but a little bit manga heavy.  And there’s no lovey-dovey stuff in here either.  I’ll save the Valentine’s or anti-Valentine’s posts for later.  For now, here’s what I’ve been up to during these annoying winter storms and my own personal “blue” period.

Here is the material I’ll be covering this week:

  • Nourin ep2
  • Wizard Barristers eps 3 & 4
  • Sakura Trick ep2
  • Naruto ch663 & 664
  • Bleach ch567 & 568
  • Hajime no Ippo ch1040, 1041 & 1042
  • Team Medical Dragon ch96 & 97
  • Mission! School ch1
  • Umi no Misaki ch2 Read more…

Unfortunately, this is going to be a very light week for me.  Had some family issues, and it pretty much kept me from keeping any sort of schedule.  To be fair, just staying in the house was a challenge.  That said, I can’t go without watching or reading anything.

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

  • Wizard Barristers ep2
  • Pupa ep2
  • Naruto ch662
  • One Piece ch735
  • Bleach ch565
  • Teppu ch3

Hey guys!  AniFriday is in full effect this week!  I was actually able to hammer out a lot of diverse anime selections, though it may be a month  or so before I’m able to narrow down what I’m keeping and dumping from this huge list.  All I can really say about that is that I picked up new shows, even though I said I wasn’t gonna do that.

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

  • Tokyo Ravens ep13
  • Sakura Trick ep1
  • Super Sonico ep1
  • Nourin ep1
  • Pupa ep1
  • Chu2koi ep6
  • Yamato 2199 ep3
  • Wizard Barristers ep1
  • Naruto ch661
  • Bleach ch564
  • One Piece ch734
  • Team Medical Dragon chapters 92 – 94
  • Teppu ch2 Read more…

AniFriday Issue #8 (Janurary 3rd, 2014)

Happy New Year guys!  The year of 2013 is behind us, and it’s time for everyone to move on to bigger and better things.  Well that’s the idea at least.  In truth, it takes effort to move forward and dump the baggage you’ve become so comfortable with.  Even a burden can seem like a welcome comfort when it’s all you know.  The easy thing about this medium and the commitment to it is that you don’t have to stick with anything.  The same applies to me.  I could dump a series at any point, though I do make it harder for myself by believing there’s some sort of commitment that comes with watching a series.  That’s a reason why some of these shows on AniFriday have kept getting commentary and coverage.  It’s silly, but that’s why right now, I’m especially happy to dump some burdens.

On the flip side of that commitment, I’m going to attempt to have more diverse coverage of manga in these posts as well.  So I hope all that are reading enjoy the small extra bit of commitment I’ve given to these manga.  Not just shounen and seinen, but shoujo, sports, josei, fantasy and maybe yuri will hopefully all get representation at some point.  Think of it as a sort of New Year’s resolution for AniFridays.  Now then, let’s get started on 2014.

AniFriday Issue #7 (December 20th 2013)

December 19, 2013 1 comment

This has been a tiring and hectic week for me, but it has also been a week with one of the best moments of my life.  Sunday my sister graduated from the UNC Chapel Hill!  I don’t know what her major is, I think it has something to do with some holistic medicine, witch doctor mumbo-jumbo.  But that doesn’t matter right now.  I’m intensely proud (and a bit jealous) of her.  And if she gets to read this (because I didn’t really talk that much that day), I wish her all the happiness in the world, and a good job, too.

Now then, onto the anime and manga commentary.  Here’s what I’ll be covering this week, in order.

  • Tokyo Ravens ep11
  • Ms. MONOCHROME ep12
  • Valvrave ep22
  • Coppelion ep12
  • One Piece ch732
  • Naruto ch659
  • Bleach ch562
  • Team Medical Dragon ch90
  • The World God Only Knows

Oh, and in case you’re wondering about the change in titling for these posts from being named parts to issues; I’m attempting to go with the magazine theme I love so much.  I know this is a blog, but humour me.  This is a hobby after all, I’m gonna f*ck around and experiment any chance I get.
