Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Nine

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

The calm before the storm, in a sense. One of my shows took a week off, at least five will be ending before the end of the month, and bringing with that a wave of finales. I will then need to figure out what on Earth I want to keep track of next season all over again.

But for now, things are familiar, and the conclusions juuust far enough over the horizon.

Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Eight

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

Some other bloggers have already been floating the specter of season previews for fall coming up, which is kind of surreal when you get to thinking that means I and many others also will end up trying to hammer out some kind of personal end of the year lists by the time that final calendar year season wraps up.

One thing at a time though, by all means.

Really, I’m just looking forward to fall so I can go back to my “Autumn Anime” header in these posts. I appreciate the alliteration a lot.

Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Seven

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

Hanamonogatari has also seen its full airing, as mentioned in the first week of this season. Also as I had brought up there, I would not be covering it in these posts because by it being a five episode simultaneous release, it would probably be better served just getting its own space than being crammed in here with one off episodes of everything else.

Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Six

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

Halfway through the season, and thankfully that means some of these productions will be mercifully drawing to a close in relatively short order.

Some good stuff will also end up getting board wiped in that future process too through, which means I should value my time with them while I still can.

This post is a day later than it normally would be for my usual schedule, but personal circumstances delayed it coming together sooner.

The only series this impacts would be Tokyo ESP, which has already aired a new episode in the time since. I do not see this causing a significant enough issue to push the post back any further, so episode six of that production will be covered next week as it normally would be.

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: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Four

This Week: Barakamon, Free! – Eternal Summer, Mobile Suit Gundam-san, Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!, Space☆Dandy Season Two, and Tokyo ESP.

A surprising three shows this week end up with prominent birds in their screenshots. Two of which are penguins, and another being an Angry Birds gag involving the Principality of Zeon’s most prominent user of red mobile suit paint.

I feel I should grant featured image rights to Gundam-san this week, should I want to avoid having that face call to have my residence pelted with crazed avian creatures.

Hangers: Summer 2014 Anime, Week Three

This Week: Barakamon, Free! – Eternal Summer, Mobile Suit Gundam-san, Rowdy Sumo Wrestler Matsutaro!!, Space☆Dandy Season Two, and Tokyo ESP.

As it goes, I realized Matsutaro has never had me use it a featured image before. Even the likes of Pupa and Coppellion managed that on separate occasions, and our salty sumo wrestler is in a far better show than either of those!

Shave free then, Sakaguchi. Shave those pandas free.
