2015 Summer Anime Conclusion

So I said I’d watch some anime this summer, and I even reviewed a few of the first episodes. Unfortunately, I couldn’t follow up with episode 2s, but here’s a summary.

maxresdefault Ore Monogatari!! is a popular and critically acclaimed manga. It won the 37th Kodansha Award for Best Shoujo Manga and was nominated for two others. An anime adaptation is coming out this season, and to a much, much more positive reception than I hoped… that is, when it’s not eww shoujo cooties eww. I’d imagined that after the niche status wore off a more critical discussion could take place — I was wrong. Sorry for the horrible unsubtle reference, but I think we need to have that discussion, and I’d rather start it sooner than later. (more…)
