Top 19 Anime I Watched in Fall 2017 & Winter 2018

I have not watched many anime in Fall 2017 and Winter 2018 mainly due to the events that happened in Summer 2017, where I decided to kick myself out of the anime community. For Fall 2017, I only watched 7 full-length anime and no shorts. For Winter 2018, I watched 8 full-length anime, three shorts, and a stand-alone OVA. So what I did is I made a list of all the anime I watched during those two seasons. That brings the total to 19 anime on this list. Continue reading

Initial D First Stage First Impressions

In 2011, I stumbled across an LOL Internet compilation. The song used in this old meme was called Running in the 90s, and I loved it! I then became obsessed with Eurobeat music for some time. I then learned a little about Initial D, the anime series that used this song.

Fast forward to 2016, when Initial D/Deja Vu memes were becoming popular. I was already into anime by 2016, and I kind of wanted to check out Initial D for myself. A year later, I got into cars. I can name some 90s/early 2000s Japanese sports cars off the top of my head. As someone who got into cars and loves watching anime, I absolutely needed to watch Initial D. This is the 3rd TV anime from 1998 that I’m watching, meaning I’ve watched more TV anime from 1998 than any year from 1999-2004. Continue reading

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. Final Thoughts (Season 1)

The Disastrous Life of Saiki K is about an overpowered boy with pink hair and psychic powers named Saiki Kusuo. While these powers might be amazing, it only brings him with inconveniences. He just wants a simple life, so he keeps his powers a secret to many. However, being surrounded by quirky people prevent him from living a life of peace and quiet. After watching this anime, I can conclude that this is the best short anime I’ve watched, which should not be a surprise. Continue reading

The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done! Final Thoughts

The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done is an anime about shogi, a Japanese board game similar to chess. It follows a boy named Yaichi Kuzuryuu, who is bestowed the title of Ryuo. He then finds a 9 year old girl named Ai Hinatsuru in his apartment. She wants to be his disciple after seeing him play shogi and then practicing shogi like crazy. This anime was more complex than I anticipated, but I still liked it. There will be spoilers in this article!

Yuru Camp△ Final Thoughts

Yuru Camp has become one of, if not, the best Iyashikei slice-of-life anime I’ve ever watched. Very few anime can be as comforting as this one. The great outdoors is a great place to relax in, because you’re away from all of the business that goes on in cities and towns. Many people use the word “Comf” to describe Yuru Camp, and I like it. There are some spoilers about the story. Continue reading

SLMOE’s Anime Watching: Week 11, 2018 Recap

The eleventh Sunday of 2018 has arrived, and that means I get to share my experiences on all of the anime I watched. Because last week was Spring Break, I decided to watch a ton of anime. My progress has been slow during most of Winter 2018, because I recently faced many personal struggles (more on that in a future blog post).

When compared to the six weeks leading to Spring Break 2017, I watched about 42% less episodes within the past six weeks. Because of this, I could breeze through more anime without feeling too much burnout unlike what happened last time. This week, I watched Gosick, Slow Start, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., GochiUsa, Ro-Kyu-Bu!, Air, Hidamari Sketch, Serial Experiments Lain, Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc, The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!, and Yuru Camp. That’s right. I watched 11 anime series this week! Continue reading
