Weekly Anime Summary – Summer 2018 Week 8

We are at Week 8 now which for me feel incredibly fast. Another month and we’ll have to say goodbye to this season. As far as this season goes it’s a underwhelming season for sure, with only comedy shows remain a high mark. Well, I’m not that fond with Grand Blue but I suppose I’m on the minority side as the manga is insanely popular, and Asobi Asobase becomes more and more of my favorite show the season. Revue Starlight comes back a big way with the revealing that could potentially change the game, and Banana Fish is still as rush as ever. Scroll down and see what the shows this week have to offer

I might move Steven Universe review into next week so that I can squeeze 2 posts for this project this weekend (it also has to do with Steven Universe’s first season is 50 episode long), because I’m thrilled to after Day 8. Day 8 will remain as one of the highlights of this 2018 Women’s Cinema Festie. Not only both films are fantastic, they’re examples of arthouse female directors at the top of their game who don’t afraid take risk and demand the viewers’ attention, resulting in films with unique voice. Both films are character study of sort. Both films rely more on visual sense than linear narrative approach. Both films are haunting and beautiful at the same time. Two films from Day 8, I present you: On Body and Soul  and You Were Never Really Here

Weekly Anime Summary – Summer 2018 Week 7

As of this moment Hi Score Girl’s sub is still unavailable, such a bitter turn for this overlooked anime. This week in anime, likewise, suffers from lots of underwhelming developments. I dropped one more show from my watch list, and maybe more if things don’t improve next couple weeks. Many of you might wonder why would I spend that much effort to watch many average shows that likely be forgotten as soon as this season’s over. Well, I don’t have an answer for that really. It’s certainly not the case of “the more I watch, the more I know” bull. It’s more that I’m still curious about anime the medium after all these years and want to find out hidden gems, or put it better, I don’t wanna miss any good show by mere ignorance. Will it burn me out eventually? yeah, probably but I’ll do the best while I’m still at this. Let’s move on from my own babble to the what you’re all here for, anime shows this week.

(Technical note: one feedback from my friend about the site was that it’s overstuffed with info. He has a point there so from now on, I’ll add the “read more” tag. Will properly edit the previous posts as well)
