With only few weeks until the official end of summer, it’s time to take a brief look of what shows I plan on watching along with future plans. As always, the shows I choose to watch are subject to change, especially since the list is small.
Studio: White Fox
Air Date: October 2015
As you can tell from my review of the first season, I have to admit that the show is very enjoyable for what it is, a show about cute girls doing cute things at a café. I kind of regret not watching it when it aired last year since I enjoyed every moment of it, especially the scenes with Sharo and Rize. From the hints from the first season, it looks like there will be another character and I wonder how she will be like. We’ll see very soon.
Studio: Doga Kobo
Airdate: October 6, 2015
You think that this would a second season, but it’s not. This is basically a spinoff of Hidan no Aria, which I covered in 2010. I have to admit that while it’s your typical Kugimiya Rie tsundere JC Staff show. While it’s nothing special, I still enjoyed it for what it is.
In this spinoff, the main character is a female student named Mamiya Akari who idolizes Aria. Considering the main character is not a male makes me wonder about the yuri potential since Kinji has a very minor role and hardly interacts with the girls from what I heard. We’ll see.
Welp, it looks like I don’t have any other shows that I plan on watching. If you can suggest some that I should check out that I would find interesting since two shows is hardly anything. If I see anything interesting, I will add it to this list.
Life and Site Updates
Currently, I’m doing fine where I am working. As usual, I’m learning some new software and database related things. Aside from that, if you have paid attention to the news lately, the government might be shutting down if Congress doesn’t pass a budget. Since I work for the federal government, this will leave me without a paycheck due to furlough next month unless Congress averts it. In short, some things I want to review and such video game wise will have to wait since I have to pay my living expenses first unless they pass a bill giving back pay. We’ll see what happens in September if I have to resort to doing that, which of course will push back the Love Live Movie review since I plan on buying the Blu-rays instead of watching it in theaters.
Speaking in which, I have decided that I will not be watching Love Live Movie right away. While I will be in New Jersey on September 12th, I don’t feel it’s worth seeing it on theaters since the ticket will probably cost about $12 and the theater is not exactly close since it’s in central Jersey. This means that I have to drive 45 minutes to get there in addition to driving four hours from south-central Pennsylvania. Since I am focused on getting the complete set of the Idolmaster Cinderella Girls on Blu-ray, I may as well hold off until it releases in Japan in December. In other words I will be reviewing it in January and hopefully by then, it will already be premiered in theaters worldwide.
Lastly, I am been increasingly frustrated by how my blog is going. Aside from my traffic dropping 20% more, which is absolutely ridiculous thanks to Google messing around with my search traffic along with them not removing the false DMCA claims yet, there is a recent drop-off in interactions (comments and likes) and page views on recent posts. It’s very discouraging to look at these numbers and I wonder to myself if it’s worth putting the effort into these posts since hardly anyone reads them these days, which of course somewhat adds to my stress. This is something that shouldn’t be worrying about because I enjoy sharing my thoughts about Anime and anything related. Not to mention, I’m probably the only one that nobody asks me questions, which also adds to my sorrows, especially with the possibly of a shutdown.
Hopefully this trend is temporary since I don’t want blogging to become a chore. If you have any suggestions on how to improve so I can turn this situation around, don’t be afraid to tell them. Aside from that, feel free to share what shows you plan on watching this fall.
