Fall Anime Wrap-Up: New Year, New Anime

Goodbye 2018, hello 2019! Fall anime season has finally come to a close (well…for the most part anyways). We are all getting ready to say goodbye to 2018 and getting hyped for 2019, mainly winter anime season. In this week’s What’s Coming Up Wednesday post I will be sharing with all of you what I’ll be watching for winter season. This time around it seems my watch list is quite smaller than previous seasons but that is par for the course! I won’t spoil too much since I already pre-scheduled that post ahead of time. I think some of my choices will be a surprise and some of my other ones wont be. Guess y’all will have to wait and find out on Wednesday!

You guys are here for my scores of fall anime season. You all know how my wrap-up rating system works by now (and if you don’t you must be new to my blog!). I simply state what anime I watched, rate it on a scale from 1 to 10, and say whether or not I would recommend it (but at this point it has turned into me making commentary/remarks on the show in general XD). Fairly straight and narrow. I don’t want to make a super long intro for this post so let’s get started!

As the wonderful Mr. Porky Pig would like to say, “That’s all folks!” Fall anime season is officially in the books. This season was also quite small as well! I think I am getting better at picking and choosing which shows will keep my interest/which ones might turn out to be duds. It’s better than trying to jam a shit ton of shows in at once just to say that I watched them purely for the sake of watching them. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Especially in 2019. What were some of your favorite shows for fall season? Which ones stood out the most and which ones turned out to be disappointing? I didn’t think I was going to enjoy SSSS.Gridman as much as I did! Definitely made it into my top 10 anime of the year (although we won’t acknowledge the kind of terrible CGI in the show….ahem). I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their Sunday! And if you live across the globe I hope you ring in the new year with happy thoughts and a happy heart! ❤

  1. I enjoyed Bunny Girl and Giblin Slayer. World in Colours was cool too, although it started to fizzle out towards the end.
