2022 Anime Retrospective

Yet another year of anime has ended. I can say without hyperbole that 2022 has been one of the most interesting years in anime I have encountered in a while. Would I say it is the best?

For once, there were more good or great shows than bad ones, and I can’t remember the last time that happened as of writing this.

Sometimes this can be accomplished by simply adding enough time for us to take in that they have grown together as friends before the inevitable climax. At first, I loved this friendship that Noragami presented in its first season. Now I’ve gravitated towards them in the sequel.

Himouto! Umaru-chan Review


Do you want to watch something that will smile on your face regardless of what mood you are in? Specifically, an anime that has one particular character that has the charisma and charm to make an entire series into a glorious package of fun and cuteness all by herself? Oh boy, do I have an anime for you if you do.
