Anime Backcatalog Reflections

Anime series, films, etc which have concluded their runs, and various thoughts I had on a recent visit. Sometimes these are re-watches, though often I am plucking something out of my backlog.

Posts made here prior to October 2013 will no longer be listed. Those posts contained multiple anime in the same post, and are of a shorter length and lower standard. But I will continue to let them exist in the larger archives for those who want to seek them out.

Episodic Anime or Currently Airing

Individual episode remarks I made about shows as they were airing week to week.

They sometimes make interesting time capsules.

Girls’ Frontline, Episode One: The Seed
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Two: Wake Up
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Three: The Echo
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Four: Silence 01
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Five: Silence 02
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Six: The Message 01
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Seven: The Message 02
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Eight: The Kindling 01
Girls’ Frontline, Episode Nine: The Kindling 02

Years ago, I used to bundle up all of the episode notes into singular posts after a season was over. This was make it easier for readers who wanted to read about a single show after the series has already concluded.

Over time, individual episode posts became far too long to make this feasible.
