Reminder: Re-watching A Series Is A Good Thing

I'm usually able to list the reasons as to why I liked or disliked it, my favourite parts of the show, my favourite character etc. Dialogue about the shows I've seen usually comes quite natural to me, so I normally don't see any reason to sit down and re-watch a show I've already spent time watching when I could use that time to watch a different show. There are, of course, a few exceptions...

It’s Time To Stop Judging

Judging an anime before I even watch it has been something I have denied doing in the past. "I don't do that!" I would protest when the topic would come up in conversation. Yet, having explored various series recently, I can say for sure that the past me was lying not only to the people she was talking to, but she was lying to herself as well. So, I'm going to take this as a chance to reflect on a couple of shows that I - and others - have judged a bit too much before watching.

Nice Serve!: Haikyu!! Season 1 and 2 Review

Following their success from the likes of Kuroko's Basketball, as well as their experience in producing other sports anime such as IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (to a certain extent), the team at Production I.G. have figured out the right formula for creating a good sports anime. Based on the manga by Haruichi Furudate, this volleyball anime doesn't feel like other sports anime I've watched.
