Yuusen Shoujo Chapter 7

Another two months, another new chapter of Yuusen. Translations were the reason for the delay this time, as is usually the case. I no longer have a translator for this series; however, the next few chapters are very, very easy to translate so I'll probably do those myself. The series will be ending in this month's issue of Dengeki Daioh, at Chapter 14. I hope to be able to finish the series soon, so don't worry, I'm not dropping it. Can't say the same for a lot of readers though, since Chapter 8 iswell, it'll be released soon enough so you'll get to see for yourselves.

Irrational and Irrefutable Assumptions About the Winter 2014 Anime Season

Coming into this season, I didn't think much of the following three shows. Hell, I didn't even know one of them existed until I saw people talking about it on Twitter. Turns out two of these three shows are pretty decent. Such a shame that the third is one of the worst first episodes I've ever experienced.

Ranking all of the past Winter Seasons till 2000

Over the years, even when I just started blogging, I've seen enough people get tired of anime, claiming that anime in the past used to be so much better. I remember that I kindof saw their point, however there were plenty of awesome series to keep me watching. However, after the current state of the season so far, I really do long for the anime of the past, and they seemed so much more diverse.

However, the big trap with these statements is to over-glorify the past. "Yeah, the past used to be so much better, in my days blah blah", so you need to be careful with these kinds of statements: you forget the boring parts and only remember the things that stood out. So because of that I decided to take a good look back at the past winter seasons. I'll rank all of them, but I'll talk about them in chronological order. For each picture, I'll use a picture of the series that turned out to be the best, by the standards I hold today.
