It's that time of the season again! Here are my seasonal choices for Winter 2020. What are you watching next season? Do we have any in common?
Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin (or Midnight Occult Civil Servants) is a supernatural mystery anime that aired during the Spring 2019 season. Produced by LIDENFILMS (who also produced Koi to Uso and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo), the series follows the latest recruit of Shinjuku Ward Office's Nighttime Regional Relations Department - Miyako Arata. If you're looking for a show that's quick-paced and has lots of fighting scenes, this isn't the show for you. It's also not the show you're looking for if you want a show with the greatest animation you've ever seen. However, Mayonaka is a show that's still underappreciated for what it is - an easy-to-watch supernatural mystery show.
It's been an entire year since I've last done a "What am I watching?" post and that's because I've been avoiding seasonal anime so I could catch up on my backlog a little bit better. This all changed with The Promised Neverland, though and, admittedly, having something to look forward to watching every week really did wonders for my mood as well, as trivial as that sounds, so I've decided to get back into the swing of seasonal anime! Woo!
In the light of day and in the dead of night, mysterious horrors await in the darkest shadows of every corner. Ito Junji: Collection is a compilation series of horror stories that were originally written by Ito Junji - a popular mangaka known for his stories and art style, often making him one of the most talented horror creators. However, perhaps I should have just gone for the medium it was intended to be enjoyed as.
Although I had some doubts, it turns out Death Parade is a show like no other. It's entertaining, sure, but it also makes you think deeply about, well, everything. Purgatory is where Death Parade is set, albeit taking the form of a bar called QuinDecim where the dead come, not only to drink cocktails, but to be judged by the arbiter. Should they go to the void? Or, should they be reincarnated?
I, like many other girls who were a teenager during the time where Twilight and Vampire Diaries were at their peak, have a soft spot for vampires. Ever since that craze, I've always been partial to some vampire fiction. And, well, Vampire Knight was no different. The question is, can humans and vampires co-exist?
Gakkou no Kaidan is the creepy tale of the lives of two siblings - Satsuki and Keiichirou - and their newfound friends as they try to survive the school's ghosts.
This week, we’re looking at a genre with less options than most, but the characters have plenty of options... That's right - it's the harem genre.I've mentioned a couple of good harem shows already in my Anime For All series but, with a post dedicated to the genre, what am I recommending this week?
This week, we're looking at another popular genre, but one that a lot of you are probably familiar with already - fantasy.
Like, for example, the drama genre, the fantasy genre has endless possibilities, making way for lots of great storylines. Match this with some great characters and some nice animation and you're good to go!
I know, I need to finish 2017's anime first. But that's not realistically going to happen. I'll get through them at my own pace - a quicker pace than usual due to me picking out less seasonal anime than I have been doing in previous editions of this. (See, I'm sticking to my blogging resolutions already!)
