Check-in Station Year in Review: Winter 2013 (the Warmth of Companionship – and Subpar Anime)

January 2, 2014 2 comments

With my Christmas post, I’ve already started my recap series for the year that I’ve dubbed End of Year Faffery.  My love of  British culture, and love the phrase “faffing about” is the inspiration behind this.  But don’t get the wrong idea.  Though I’m playing with concepts, presentation and ideas all the time on this blog; I’m seriously going through this blogs journey in anime throughout the entire year of 2013.  And I’m of course starting with the first season of the year, the Winter season.  After all, this blog is named the Check-in Station. It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to not not check-in at the end of the year with everything I’ve discovered, and experienced in world of anime.  Please enjoy, as I take on my journey through the year of anime, 2013.

I’m picking up people’s recommendations left and right . First it was for a shoujo.  This time it’s a recommendation for something more dramatic.  I’m a huge fan of Noir.  I’ll defend that show like a rabbid hound.  So I’ve had people recommend series like Gunslinger Girls and Phantom for years.  I just never picked them up because I had no interest in expanding my horizons.  I was very satisfied with the series, and thought that I didn’t need anything else.  But then again, what kinda anime fan doesn’t watch more anime?  I finally cracked and have added Phantom to my queue.  AndI’m not disappointed so far.
