Winter Anime Wrap-Up: Winter Doesn’t Last Forever, But Anime Series Sure Do

Moshi moshi my beautiful pandas!

I feel like it has been FOREVER since I have written anything for you all. That’s probably due to me still working during all this COVID-19 situation. That…and maybe my lack of motivation right now XD #sorrynotsorry

Today I am here to bring you my Winter Anime Wrap-Up. Winter season is finally over and we have made our way into spring season.  How is everyone enjoying spring premiers? Seems like we have some good series on our hands! I’m pretty stoked about Appare-Ranman and Balance: Unlimited. I’m still kinda bummed about a few of the series being delayed due to COVID-19, but everyone’s health and well being is what really matters. We will get to see the others soon enough!

If you are new to KawaiiPaperPandas you can check out my anime scoring changes here: if you aren’t feel free to skip down ahead to see how I scored everything for winter season!

Can’t believe I took on another 16 shows lololz I am now only a few anime series away from hitting the big 600. What was your favorite show from winter season? Obviously mine was Dorohedoro. I know Netflix got its claws into the licensing for it so some of you haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. It will probably be out in a few months kinda like how Beastars took a hot minute to arrive. That it going to do it for me today. I will try to work on a new Top Ten Tuesday post asap or maybe some other blogging venture when I have the energy. Have a good day, evening, or night wherever you are in the world. Remember to always stay kawaii and cuddly my pandas! MUAH! XOXO
