General discussion (not specifically a review) of a series not available yet in Region 1, but subtitled by fans and released on the internet.

Update on the Season (and me)

Well, I’ve had a lot of time to watch anime this season, for reasons I’ll go into later. Not that I’ve taken major advantage of it; this season is definitely sub par. Does it still reek? I’d have to say … Continue reading
