Over the years short anime have kind of become my thing. I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for them but it’s only in the last few years that I’ve switched to “watch nearly every short every season” mode. Because of that there are naturally some gaps through which shows which are extremely my sort of thing have slipped. This year I filled one of those gaps. Despite Straight Title Robot Anime; one of my favourite series ever being a part of it I had previously missed out on the rest of the gdgd series.

Recurring feature time! In previous 12 days runs I’ve used day 6 to highlight a few of the most interesting short anime to air during the year, it’s a good tradition so lets keep it going.

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

Some of them were really great, and some fell flat for me at least. With that said let’s just dive right into the roundup. Continue reading “Spring 2018 Shorts Roundup”
This is actually being written in a somewhat timely manner for once? Wonders never cease.
Sadly this season was pretty thin on the ground in the shorts sphere, there weren’t that many to start with, and only four actually got picked up for streaming. But on the plus side they were fairly consistently decent, and in some cases pretty great, so it could be far worse. Continue reading “Winter 2018 Shorts Roundup”
What do you mean we’re halfway through Winter already? I guess I should stop procrastinating then. With that in mind let’s get to Fall’s batch of shorts. Continue reading “Fall 2017 Shorts Roundup”
So this time last year I decided to change things up a little and use day 6 to highlight some of the shorts that stood out in 2016. Given I’ve made shorts my thing at this point, it makes sense to turn that into a yearly thing. Since I’m now posting about every short in the roundups I’ve decided to give awards to a few series that I feel stood out for specific reasons.
