[Nine] Fool’s Gold

The buzz around Re: Creators fell off pretty quickly after its halfway point at the start of the summer season and by the end of its runtime I could count the number of people I knew that were still following it on one hand (myself included). With how flawed the show was, I could see why so many people decided not to continue with it but as a story centralized around creators and the creative process, with a focus on encouraging would-be creators to well, create – I personally found a lot of enjoyment in watching the series to see what it wanted to say to relative newcomers like myself.

Spring 2017 – Final Thoughts

I honestly can’t believe that we’re already at the end of the season but here we are 12 weeks in and the summer season is closing in quick. I wasn’t entirely sure if I had time to do this for spring, but with a 4-day reprieve in between the summer semesters I’ve found a little bit of time to get back into writing. Luckily things haven’t been too busy for anime so I’ve managed to finish a good amount of shows – and some real good shows at that.

Irreconcilable Differences

Episode 8 of Re:Creators made waves in my corner of the anime community in a way that I certainly didn’t expect. The show’s one hell of a spectacle which is not a surprise given some of the big names on staff, but Re:Creators delivers from its action-oriented, wide-reaching production, ideas that are honestly really interesting. The show doesn’t spend too much time dwelling on these things though and I honestly can’t say for sure that the show has a concrete message, but it’s still fun to speculate. This episode in particular ended off in such a way that one could simply write it off as shock factor, but I’d like to think that there was a little more meaning to its explosive end.

Just about all the premieres have completed their run by now and so, I’m back with another impressions post! I hope everyone’s got their fill of shows this season; I for one am very happy about the turn out this time around. I’m following a couple more shows than last season but in general, I’ve been enjoying the one’s I’ve picked up a lot more than in the past season. That begin said, there are a couple shows that aren’t quite up to par, which is a little sad to see.

Any-who, there’s a ton of shows that I got around to watching this week that I want to talk about so let’s get started.
