Top Winter 2015 Plan-to-watch Picks

The irregular Kawaranai Mono writer, miharusshi, makes her comeback! I’ve pretty much made this segment, “Top <insert season and year> Plan-to-watch Picks”, an excusable excuse to write here in cladinblue’s aniblog. Since it’s mid-December, Christmas is just around the corner, and fall anime season is about to end, it’s time to place our bets for the next season. Just to simplify things, next season is Winter 2015 according to Taiga (I don’t really like writing it as Winter ‘14/’15).

Speaking of winter, Winter 2014’s Gin no Saji 2, Noragami and Nisekoi were my top favorite shows. But the OVAs that came out around that time were sweet treats. We got to see Natsume and Nyanko-sensei again in Natsume Yuujinchou OVA: Itsuki Yuki no Hi ni, two years after the long absence of the TV series. Ginko returned to lead us to a world of wonders in Mushishi Special: Hihamukage, which served as the hope for all the fans for sequels (which were realized this year, too!) since the first TV anime aired in 2005. From that special, we all saw how much the art style has changed. I personally like all the changes!

Anyway, please do check out the upcoming shows. The following are just some of the sources where you can browse the list of new shows: Neregate |AniChart | LiveChart. Continue reading

The Summer 2014 Anime Classes

[HorribleSubs] Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.31_[2014.09.01_20.26.29]

How many times have I used this screencap?

We did it for the previous season. Why not do it every season?

With summer ending, it’s time to do this again. I actually forgot about previous season’s post but miharusshi reminded me and suggested we do it every season going forward. I’m cool with that so here it is! Continue reading

Top Fall 2014 Plan-to-watch Picks

So, yeah. We’re doing this on a regular basis. I rarely post in this blog (Sumimasen!), but at least, for now, I have come up with a reason to post something. 🙂

I assume that We all know that autumn is a visually sentimental season, exploited by writers and artists to bring out raw human emotions. Last year’s Fall line-up was really good (at least, for me), and I enjoyed most of the shows that aired that time. Can we expect this upcoming season’s lineup to be as good as last year’s? Naw. The season doesn’t have to do with how excellent or mediocre the anime would turn out. Nevertheless, we can always be hopeful of what this season has in store for our entertainment us. 😉

Just to be consistent with the post for Summer 2014, I used the same sources (Neregate | AniChart | LiveChart ) for choosing my top picks, although there’s no guarantee that I can faithfully follow their episodes weekly. It’s important to note that with AniChart and LiveChart, the links above may not work anymore once we enter next year, 2015.

Alright, I somehow managed to write some introductory paragraphs. 🙂 Let’s move on to our lists. Continue reading

Top Summer 2014 Plan-to-watch Picks

It smells like summer.

Spring 2014 is heading its end. Only one month is left for the airing anime TV series that we’re currently watching. One month is a kind of long duration, but when it ends we realize that time really flies by so fast.

Let's keep our sanity, shall we?

The heat can drive people crazy, if not just lazy. Let’s keep our sanity, shall we?

The Spring 2014 Anime Classes

As this anime season comes to an end, but without waiting for it to just end first, we classify this season’s class of anime  into their respective classes.

“Wow, the author thinks he’s punny.”

DEKKAI UPDATE: Added a list from a soon-to-be new writer for this blog.
