Spring Anime Wrap-Up: Aloha beaches. Grab your piña coladas and sunnies…cause this list is a H.O.T one!

It seems everyone has a lot of mixed feelings about this spring season. Personally, I quite enjoyed this season, but you can’t win them all! Was it as good as last years? No, but there were some great shows and I still have to rate them on a scale from one to ten. Oh the life of an anime blogger!

I’m happy that summer season is a bit smaller this time around. It feels like we are getting a bit of a breather. Fall season is going to be quite large and I need some R & R before it premiers. I’m currently in the middle of watching summer premiers, as well as working in Toradora! into the mix. I believe I currently just finished episode 7 and I am making my way to episode 8. Taiga is definitely my spirit animal! I love her dropkicks and eye pokes XD

As I have stated before, if you have been following me for some time you know how my wrap-up rating system works. If you are new you can check out my previous wrap-up post here (so you can get a general idea of what I’m talking about): https://kawaiipaperpandas.wordpress.com/2018/03/28/winter-anime-wrap-up-we-came-we-saw-we-watched/.
