Spring 2015 Final Thoughts — Post-Mortem Retrospective

[FFF] Death Parade - 01 [354391BE].mkv_snapshot_00.51_[2015.06.30_23.49.37]

Imagine the scene. Me, with my expensive uniform and dashing hair, behind the counter as always. I, Decim, am working at my extremely classy bar. It’s downtime, no customers around. My assistant makes me a delicious burger for lunch, but I am interrupted before I can eat. The ominous rumble of the elevator and the heralding ring of the bell announces that patrons have arrived.

Spring 2015 Status Update: Week 3

You know the drill from last week. I realized talking about twenty-ish shows every week, now that first episodes are out of the way would result in way too long of a post, meaning I’ll be giving extra space to to titles I have more interesting things to say about, but only a short note for others.

Spring 2015 First Impressions: Part 3

Yes, this is coming out earlier than expected. It turns out that Ninja Slayer is just a 15 minute bi-weekly short, and it would be unwise to delay everything else a few days just for that since all the other first episodes have already aired.

You can check out part one and part two of my first impressions here. Continue reading Spring 2015 First Impressions: Part 3
