Seasonal Anime Coverage
First off, the Spring 2020 Final Rankings was posted yesterday. The only two shows I “missed” are Healin’ Good Pretty Cure and BNA and that’s because those hit streaming very late into June. Currently watching BNA and I hope to add both shows into the Rankings before Saturday, July 4 which is when Healin’ Good‘s first Summer 2020 episode airs. If not…oh well.
As for Summer 2020, First Impressions begin this weekend. Nothing is set for episode reviews but I do plan on picking something. I ended up skipping coverage last season as my top priority was fulfilling the first poll and covering Angel Beats! for its tenth anniversary. Since it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed consistently, I felt the need to play it safe. That said, it felt weird not covering anything current and I hate to say it but current stuff is more likely to secure traffic.
- Angel Beats! – Finished covering the main series but the episode reviews aren’t done just yet as there’s “Another Epilogue” and the two OVAs. Will be entirely done on July 17th.
- School-Live! – Finished. Click here for the archive page if you’re interested. I plan on covering the manga but that’s a while away. Want to take a break first.
- Flip Flappers – Started after School-Live! and I’m about two episodes in. Taking a break due to the Summer 2020 premieres and will resume on July 18th.
- Yuki Yuna is a Hero – Finished Season 1 and I’m now covering Season 2. Taking a break due to the Summer 2020 premiers and will resume on July 19th.
- Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story – This has been a low priority for me where the next post is out when it’s out. That said, I definitely would’ve preferred to be done with this stinking show last month. This is why I generally feel discouraged to catch up on episode reviews I fell behind on. Hopefully, I’ll finally be done this month.
- Violet Evergarden – Still need to rewatch the show before I get to Eternity and the Auto Memory Doll and I still plan on reviewing the latter. As I said in the last announcement post, I will be updating the sreencaps for my episode reviews.
Manga First Impressions
As mentioned earlier, I’m going to review the School-Live! at some point in the foreseeable future. In the meantime, I figure I test the waters of reviewing manga so I’m going to try a bunch of recent releases and write some first impressions posts on them. First one will be for Spy x Family which I recently picked up and really liked. The Summer 2020 premieres are my top priority however so these posts will be out pretty sporadically.
While writing in anticipation of Crown Handler would be more fitting, I am leaning towards finishing the Princess Principal re-reviews this summer. I figured since I’m rounding out the backlog to finally write my Top 20 lists, I could also take the time to revisit some favorites such as PriPri. Another reason is that I would like to finish it first before I get to Laid-Back Camp and The Quintessential Quintuplets this fall. Haven’t decided on a specific time or if I’ll crank them out weekly or all at once but this summer is my preferred window right now.
Thanks for reading!
