Now we get to the second part of this 2018 Anime Summary. This can be seen as individual awards, where I will pick the Best, and the Worst, as well as Runner-Ups. It will divide as Individual awards, Production Awards and Character Awards. Get on board for a tour around the town now, shall we?
Like a cold you can’t get rid of, the new season has begun. As tradition, I tailed down all these first new, non-sequel episodes and gave them some quick impressions the moments I finished. This Winter season proves to be a season with no real surprise. It’s certainly the fewest shows in term of quantity for quite a while, and shows that supposed to be stand out are doing a pretty good job.
