Hey everyone! It’s been a while, and it’s been really quiet around here, but thankfully the quiet should end, as starting from here on out, we’re trying more of a classical approach to blogging, with everyone having a timetable. It’s pretty open to change as this is our first time trying it out, but here’s what it looks like it’s going to be.
On Sundays, Dusk will post about Mekaku City Actors On Mondays, Justin will post for Gokukoku no Brynhildr Also on Mondays, Doofus will post Haikyuu! Following on, Doofus will post for Baby Steps on Tuesdays. We’ll have a gap in the week, where myself (Alex) will post for Isshuukan Friends on Thursday. Kryn will be doing No Game No Life on Fridays.
Mimi will be returning for Mushishi Zoku Shou, but it’s currently unknown exactly when she’ll be posting, so expect this to be updated soon! It’ll be stickied at the top of the page until the timetable actually gets rolling, so happy reading!
Baby Steps really is a sports series for both those with and without interest in tennis. Not in the sense that one can enjoy the series regardless of knowing the sport, which is still true, rather that Baby Steps really goes through the points needed to build up and show the sport each step of the way. It’s something which both understands its sport, and goes through the effort (and time) to show it. And that’s pretty great.
Being one of the most hyped up shows for this Spring season, both by its preexisting fanbase and by Aniplex’s masterful (regardless of how annoying it is) minimalistic marketing, it’s almost unsurprising to see how divisive the reactions to the first episode were. The reasons are a little less easy to pinpoint, though, but a big part of it is perhaps how SHAFT didn’t bother at all with making this accessible for newcomers.
So beautiful. Sign me up for this world, please? No Game; No Life was quickly placed into my top 3 to watch this spring purely because of its art style. I’m a sucker for it. I’m browsing previews, and before I actually read about any of them, I choose based on art. It rarely fails me. In this case, it definitely hasn’t.
