Finishing the best animes are like saying goodbye to a friend

I finally got around to watching Steins;Gate during Thanksgiving. And then rewatching it this Christmas season with my sister. I thought it was a fantastic show. And it gets better the second time through. Actually, I thought even the pacing seemed quicker the second time around, maybe because I was noticing things I’d missed the first time. Even though the time travel to change fate storyline has been done, and quite well actually with Higurashi and Madoka Magica, Steins; Gate still felt fresh, smart, engaging and interestingly enough, lovable.

Tsuritama is unmistakably Kenji Nakamura

Between Fate/Zero’s continuation, Tsuritama, Acchi Kocci, Sankarea and probably Hyouka (once I get around to it) I’ve been pretty pleased by the quality of the summer season. Traditionally not a very strong season. spring season (Thanks Kim. I apparently have no idea what month we’re in >_<). With that said, it’s looking increasingly like I’m probably not going to pick up a show on a weekly basis, and will probably swoop in and write about different shows randomly. Figured it’d be good for a change of pace.
