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 #18 (June 13th, 2014): there’s no “I” in team, and there’s no creepy monster in my mirrors anymore

Summer’s here!  And that means that I have more time to watch anime and read more manga!  Why?  It’s not because I’m out of school, I’ve been done with that forever.  It’s because my kids aren’t in school, so I don’t have to waste time picking them up and because I can get more sleep.  I don’t have to wake up four hours after going to bed to take care of business!  Couple that with the time I plan on spending at the beach and drinking more beer, and I’m thinking that I’m going to be in a much better mood over the next couple of months.

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 pt5 (December 6th 2013)

December 6, 2013 1 comment

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)

November 29, 2013 5 comments

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…
