Hoshiko’s Criteria For Anime On-The-Go


“On-the-go” because it’s the list of anime I’ll bring around whenever I’m on the move. I’m pretty sure viewing experience is extremely important for all of us as anime viewers. Some of us love big screens, awesome sound system to enhance the experience while some chooses to be simpler, okay with any size of screens and time of the day.

I used to be very particular about how and when I watch an anime. The weather can’t be too hot, the monitor has to have the perfect brightness, etc. It’s a bunch of stuff I made up to enhance my viewing experience. And to a certain extent, I still held on to those beliefs. However, ever since I’m constantly on the move due to my work, which by the way, explains my absence from blogging, I’m a little more flexible these days.

Relaxing with A Channel

Like it or hate it, it’s your call. I know there are a lot who got sick and tired of slice-of-life anime. For me, all I can say is it depends on how the series is delivered.

A Channel, to me, did a great job. If you’re looking for an anime with substance, there isn’t any here. But if you’re looking for an anime to unwind, here it is. A Channel is one of the good ones out there. I know it’s hard to compare now that slice-of-life has become repetitive across different anime titles but I really enjoyed this one.

Anime Summer Season 2011 Is Coming!

Soooo…Spring Anime 2011 season is coming to an end. How has it been for you? I picked up Moshidora and A Channel as planned here. Along with those two series, I picked up Hanasaku Iroha and Hidan no Aria as well. Just to let you know, I haven’t seen any of the latter two series’ episodes since the sixth episode – which is why there isn’t any Hanasaku Iroha post lately. I intend to continue with it, just thought I should gather a few more episodes first.

The other day, I was reading the Summer Anime 2011 list and have roughly decided what to follow. It has become a habit.

What Are You Watching This Spring?

I’ve seen the list circulating around before the winter season even begun. At the time, I didn’t bother to check it out simply cuz I’m still in the winter season mood. Besides, the list sometimes changes so why not check it out when it’s almost time. Now the time is here. Check out for yourself what’s in stored here .

To be honest, nothing really excites me this coming anime season. There are quite a few sequels, and I’ve only watched Kampfer’s first season. I’m not planning to watch Kampfer Season 2 though. I didn’t like the first one for obvious reasons. I remember thinking Kampfer Season 1’s first episode was really cool, and it all went downhill from there.

While I’m curious what will you be watching and why, I should probably share with you what I’m planning to watch.
