Winter Anime 2016 Mid-Week Thoughts

Prince of Stride: Alternative

When the winter anime season started this year, I followed 15 series including the leftovers from previous season. And then I dropped the total to 13 series after a weeks. I kept watching the 13 anime series until now, but of course not all episodes have been absolutely fun.

As usual, some series will have good episodes and then some bad ones. It’s the overall premise of a series that keeps me going. Anyway, I’m here to write about some of the series I’ve been following this season thus far.

Hoshiko’s Criteria For Anime On-The-Go

Konata

“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.

5 Favorite Slice-of-Life Series

Hyakko

As some of you may know or noticed, I’m a huge fan of slice-of-life series. Nothing makes me happier than to unwind with some lighthearted, fun series that usually are slice-of-life. Slice-of-life in anime refers to series with little plot and character development. More often than not, the series are filled with comedic moments.

You probably already know that, don’t you?

Anyway, the list below is my favorite slice-of-life series, not arranged in any particular order.

Hoshiko’s Best Anime 2012

Jormungand

My annual best anime post has returned! Strangely though, I have hard time writing this post. It’s almost as if the anime this year is not that memorable. That’s not a good sign. Granted, I was drifting in and out of what I call the “anime mode” (indulging in anime) due to work-related projects. Still, it shouldn’t be hard to recall a good anime right? Right??

Anyway, the list below consists of anime completed this year. So it means, the anime could’ve started during Autumn 2011 but completed Winter 2012.

Super Exciting Fall Season 2012

It definitely helps to have sequels that lighten up my mood in the upcoming anime season. Big names like Bakuman, Hidamari Sketch and Jormungand are some of the series I look forward to. Having said that, there are few new series that caught my attention. Needless to say, it’ll be a very busy season for me. And that hasn’t even include the ones that aren’t on my list, the ones that I’ll need to sample the first few episodes before making my final decision. Oh boy, oh boy…

Without further ado, I shall now reveal my list! And the full anime list can be found here.
