Winter Anime Wrap-Up: Dear Winter…I’m breaking up with you. It’s time for me to start seeing spring season.

Winter season is finally coming to an end. Most everything I was watching for winter season wrapped up this week. The only three shows I have for leftovers are Dororo, The Rising of the Shield Hero, and Karakuri Circus (which still doesn’t need 32 god damn episodes). Everyone is getting pumped for spring season because we have a lot of returning series. I touched basis on this in my What’s Coming Up Wednesday post and talked about what I’ll be watching for spring season. You can check that post out here if you missed it: https://kawaiipaperpandas.com/2019/03/13/whats-coming-up-wednesday-spring-forward-watch-more-anime/.

Y’all know how my rating system works for wrap-up post buuuttt if you are new here I will explain the deats. I state what anime I watched, rate it on a scale from 1 to 10, and simply state whether or not I would recommend it to you guys. Most of you know my recommendations have turned into me just being a smug little panda and just stating my general thoughts/opinions about the show. Come on! You guys should know my humor by now. 😉 So without further ado…let’s get to rating!

  2. I loved Boogiepop and Promised Neverland too! Run with the Wind, Spec Ops Asuka, and Kakeguriu I plan to watch this week. I’m not too much into the others, but that’s not to say I won’t try some of them if I ever get to them! thanks for the post!

    1. Run With the Wind was AMAZING! I couldn’t recommend it enough! Definitely watch that out of all of them. Boogiepop was so mind boggling and I enjoyed every second of it. I say maybe check out a few more on my list and see if there is anything else you like 🙂
