Here are my thoughts on all the anime series I picked up last season – lineup is exactly the same as for my mid-season thoughts, except that I left out Hataraku Saibou!! due to it finishing only a week later. All content I’m already familiar with from the manga, so I have nothing to add.
Here’s an older game… and an older review, I’ll admit, but one I haven’t posted on here before. Bit short on time this week! 😳 Maybe I’ll use this as an excuse to check out King’s Quest II soon.
King’s Quest I: Quest for the Crown (AGD Interactive version) (2001-2009) – Point-and-click adventure, PC.
Game review time~ Another newer visual novel, though very different from Monster Prom. I seem to be favouring more casual games at the moment, though I do have plenty of old school RPGs on the backlog that I hope to get to before the end of the year!
Neo Cab (2019) – Visual novel, PC.
Winter 2021’s episode counts are all over the place, some shows are about 3 weeks ahead of others! For the sake of fairness, I’ve watched no more than 7 episodes of any of these, even where 9 or more are available. I’m looking forward to finally catching up with them all again on my day off tomorrow. 😮
Valentine’s Day. Not the most relevant of holidays for me, but if sites are going to use it as an excuse to give me free games, I’m all for it! If the following review catches your interest, anyone with an Amazon Prime subscription can grab Monster Prom from Prime Gaming until March 1st, which is where I got it. It’s also 69% off (heyo) on both GOG.com and Steam at the time of writing.
(#NotSponsored, in case that needed to be stated on a such a small, fortnightly blog). 😛
Oh, and since being able to read the text matters for visual novels, clicking or opening the images in another tab should make them bigger once again now! I swear, every redesign WordPress goes through makes that more awkward to do.
Monster Prom (2018) – Visual novel, PC.
We’re now a full month into 2021… got to admit, it doesn’t feel all that much different to last year so far. I’m still stuck working from home, surrounded by tea and snacks and anime. Hard life, I know. Anyway, it means I don’t feel too bad asking you all to look back at 2020 one last time. 😛 Here were my favourite anime series of the year:
I’d originally planned to post my Top Anime of 2020 list this week, and have most of it drafted already… but that would be my 5th list post in a row, and they’re all starting to look the same. 😛 Back to gaming instead~
Book of Demons (2018) – RPG, PC
Happy New Year, blog readers! Normally I’d make a dedicated post on the subject, but I’ve got so many overdue posts to finish already, unfinished business from 2020…
Here’s my thoughts on last year’s final round of anime offerings; the list is down from the mid season’s 16 to just 12, as four (King’s Raid, Higurashi Gou, Osomatsu-san and Jujutsu Kaisen) aren’t over yet. 🙂
Moving on to the ending themes! Which weren’t quite as good as the openings this year, in my opinion, a much easier list to narrow down.
Apparently the embedded videos I used in my OP theme post aren’t available in other parts of the world – that’s what I get for going with official uploads! I’ve tried to go with Japanese sources where available this time, on the assumption that if I can see them here, they can’t be that strictly region locked. 😛
Time once again for my usual end of year anime lists~ Starting as usual with the opening themes, but this time with embedded video! The links in the titles are to their Anime-Planet pages instead.
Here are my favourite 12 of the year, out of all the series I picked up. Feel free to judge me on my taste in music, and/or leave comments listing your own favourites. 🙂
