Wow! Already, we've hit the end of the year. By the time next Sunday rolls around, it will be 2015. I figure it makes sense to look back on the past year. What was your biggest surprise show, both good and bad? I'd have to say for me my biggest surprise was Nisekoi. Yeah, it followed a lot of rom -com stereotypes, but it followed them very well and was one of the most enjoyable shows for me this year. As for disappointments, I'd have to say Mekaku City Actors, ironically produced by the same studio as Nisekoi (Shaft). At the time of watching, I enjoyed it, but really as I look back it was a confusing mess, which is a shame since the vocaloid songs it is based off are HUGE in Japan. What about you guys?
This week, we had a couple of reviews, Psycho-Pass 2 and Shin Sekai Yori. There was also an excellent round-up of some under appreciated shows from the past year, and a glorious gift from FruityDrinks. As a side note, I would also like to point out that the legal anime streaming site Crunchyroll is now on the WiiU (bwahahahaha Lizard Squad can't stop me from watching anime on my video game consoles!).
