Between the Sky and Sea episode 6: Still not in space

At long last there’s a second Scottish anime character

Week six and I’m starting to wonder if this lot will ever actually do any space fishing. On the plus side the show finally broke free from the Namino black hole; she only half started a fight this time!

Between the Sky and Sea episode 5: Questionable Life Decisions

How I feel watching this at this point

Does that post title refer to the contents of the episode or my decision to keep blogging this thing? Why not both?! While not quite as utterly good will destroying as last week this episode’s trajectory didn’t change a whole lot really. On the plus side it saw the return of the show’s distinctive style of extremely inefficient problem solving, so that was fun at least.

Between the Sky and Sea episode 4: Going in circles

I’m going to level with you folks; this show isn’t very good. As much as I’m trying my best to give it a fair shake the anime seems determined to undermine any goodwill it manages to build, this episode in particular managed to throw that small level of positive feeling right out the window. With that said I’m committed to blogging this thing and I’ve finished far worse stuff out of sheer obstinacy before. So let’s talk about the episode.

After last week’s frenetic premiere, Between the Sky and Sea slowed down a little this week, taking some time to establish more character relationships and a clear early series goal for the cast. It still managed to be low key absurd though. Continue reading “Between the Sky and Sea episode 2: No Space Fishing Occurs”

Between the Sky and Sea episode 1: What?!

I’ve wanted to give episodic anime blogging a try for a while ago, but never find myself watching something that felt suited for it. But, since this season’s been kind enough to feature a show that feels right, it would be remiss of me to pass the opportunity up. So let’s get this train rolling and look at the first episode.

Summer 2018 Shorts Roundup

 

yama178.jpgWell that season sure flew by. It certainly doesn’t feel like I’ve gone another 3 months without writing anything.

This season’s shorts had one unusual thing in common. With a single exception everything was a sequel or a continuation. As such it’s a lot of “if you liked this already it’s still good” for the most part. But enough preamble. In the spirit of the swiftly passing season let’s get right down to it.
