I am leaving this summer anime season a teeny-tiny bit unsatisfied. Nothing majorly wrong…I just felt like my attention was elsewhere this time around. I did end up dropping and I also put quite a bit of anime on hold because my heart just wasn’t into it. I felt like I should complete the shows I was die hard fan-girling over and knew I was going to finish…everything else can just wait. I know some of you guys were also feeling this way. We had previously discussed it on one of my Twitter post a few weeks back. I still feel the same then as I do now. I am hoping with the seasonal change I’ll get back into the swing of things! I am trying to keep my watch list a bit shorter for fall season. I hate when I overindulge or over do it with my watch list. Sometimes less is more!
Now that summer anime season is coming to a close I decided to fit an older series into my schedule before we kick-off fall season. I am currently watching Sakura Trick! Very kawaii, very girly, and also very gay. I love it! I should be able to blast through it since it is only 12 episodes long. Anyone else trying to squeeze some last minute things in before the new season? I also FINALLY got to watch the Bungou Stray Dogs: Dead Apple movie and OH MY GOD was it EVERYTHING!!! I am oh so happy that I got to see it. Maybe I’ll write a post about it sometime next week. Also, the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes movie was so much fun! I thought it was a great addition to the franchise. It wasn’t perfect, but it was damn awesome to watch. #PlusUltra

That is a wrap for summer anime season! Welp…I started off with wanting to watch 21 shows and only ended up completing 13. That is quite the difference if I do say so myself. What shows did you drop or put on hold to watch at a later time? Is there anything you won’t be going back to in the foreseeable future? What was your favorite show of the season? Let me know all of your thoughts and feelings in the comments section below! Thank you so much for joining me my pandas. I’ll catch you all on the flip side 😉
