Hangers: Autumn Anime, Week Three

This Week: Kill la Kill, Nagi No Asukara, Miss Monochrome, Coppelion, Monogatari Series: Second Season, Non Non Biyori, Gingitsune: Messenger of the Fox Gods, and Gundam Build Fighters.

Many folks I know ascribe to the notion of a “three episode rule” when it comes to selecting what to keep and drop around this time of the season. The productions have had some time to stretch their legs, jog a few laps, and we get an idea of who may or may not be making the varsity team.

Much like many fantasy sports groups though, I don’t use such trap doors to get myself off of a sinking ship, so none of these shows I am following will be traded away regardless of how enjoyable or terrible they are proving to be.

Hangers: Autumn Anime, Week Two

This Week: Kill la Kill, Nagi No Asukara, Miss Monochrome, Coppelion, Monogatari Series: Second Season, Non Non Biyori, Gingitsune: Messenger of the Fox Gods, and Gundam Build Fighters.

You know, I told myself I wanted to try and give a go at weekly thoughts on currently airing shows for Fall season. Vary things up a bit, and give another column outlet outside of the usual backcatalog spelunking.

But much of what made it on my list to follow airs at odder points for a Wednesday posting schedule this go around (and Pupa is currently a nonstarter in search of an air date), so it looks like many of these thoughts will come days after airing. No chasing the Day And Date dragon. And That’s OK.

Hangers: Summer Shutdown 2013

This Week: Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, Watamote, Silver Spoon, Attack on Titan, Monogatari Series: Second Season, Miss Monochrome, and Uchouten Kazoku

While we’re into October, Summer anime season for 2013 has now officially closed up shop for the year and it’s time to lock all the toys back in the box and do at least a little light clean up before we have company over for Fall season and get everything strewn about right and proper all over again.

These passing thoughts are not presented in any particular order, aside from my favorite series of the Summer, which I would like to save my goodbye for until the end.
