Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Five

This Week: Barakamon, Free! – Eternal Summer, M3: The Dark Metal, Mobile Suit Gundam-san, Space☆Dandy Season Two, and Tokyo ESP.

In a quality of life upgrade for readers, I made a new category over the last week, where I collected my previous episodic opinions on shows as they were airing and placed them with their series friends. The goal is to make things a lot easier for folks to read past opinions from these posts without needing to flip through a dozen or two separate pages, which is especially helpful if someone only picks up a show after it has ended.

So, if you ever wanted to refer back to my longer Ping Pong The Animation write-ups from last season, experience my pain of Pupa all over again, among many others as they were in their weekly formats here, now you can!

Given that my other categories have Things I Can Find In My Closet naming schemes, the section is merely called Notebooks. While I backdated these entries so as to not flood the blog in the present, going forwards I will merely publish these as shows or seasons end. M3: The Dark Metal lacks one for now due to insufficient previous material, and Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!! has an uncertain series length I am willing to wait a few more weeks before collecting its prior write-ups together.

By the same token, I wheeled this out two months ago without an announcement, but while I am here: There is also now an Index page and related sub-pages, which contains a much easier to navigate collection of lists and links back to previous material across all the categories on this blog.

Ideally these enhancements make for a more convenient reading experience, especially with the number of posts in the archives.

Now then: TV shows and stuff!

Hangers: Spring Anime, Week Thirteen Season Shutdown

This Week: The World is Still Beautiful, Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!, Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara, M3: The Dark Metal, and Free! Eternal Summer.

Post publication was put on pause due to power failure. Please accept this image of Haru as a merman for the inconvenience.

Last week of the season then for the weekly shows! Much like I did the previous Winter season, I may opt to make a final little roundup after this for various other Spring productions I watched, but did not write about. You can be on the lookout for it early next week then, lest I get sucked to far into the Summer season prep-work.

If you have been reading these weeklies as they happen this season, I certainly more than thank you. If I did not happen to pick up anything you were more interested in however, that is OK too! Summer season is about to cause all kinds of shakeups, as my plate will basically be cleared, and as of right now I have not firmly decided on what I actually want to tackle from it.

So there is, in the end, always next time to look forward to.

Hangers: Spring Anime, Week Eight

This Week: Ping Pong The Animation, The World is Still Beautiful, Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!, Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara, and M3: The Dark Metal.

I watched a few other airing series in passing this holiday weekend so I’m not as swamped with everything I’m putting off at the end of the season!

I will throw in an extra comment only for M3: The Dark Metal though, given the lower attention that show receives around the internet.
