Having re-watched Simoun, most episodes of Crest of the Stars/Banner of the Stars, and Marimite seasons 1-4, finally it's time to put something in this lethargic blog of mine.
Sometimes, being too selective has its disadvantages. For somebody like me who likes my shows a bit serious, without moe or harems or ecchi etc if possible, the tipping point was the weight of real-life worries. Not only did I not like to watch sad shows that would make my mood even sink further, I wanted to seek out lighter shows from my usual fare. My pickiness probably borders on elitist sometimes but this time, I was willing to take off the pet peeve goggles for a while. I do not know if this seems like lowering of standards, or if this is just me looking for something more positive from what I usually watch. I might be thinking too much these days, I'm afraid.

Happy New Year everyone! This post was delayed because I was waiting for Mouryou no Hako's last episode, and while waiting I was not in the mood to write any 'thoughtful' description about each anime on my list. But now it's finished, so enjoy!
I know it's a really, really late post. But clearing the post backlog just makes me feel so better. 😀
