Sometimes, I can make posts in a reasonably timely manner. Sometimes.
I asked a few people on ask.FM for post ideas and Alex told me to make a post on OTPs. In theory I should make one for all time my best OTPs (like a top 30 or something), but that would require too much thinking and work, so instead I am just going to focus on this season.
Unfortunately, this is a pretty terrible season for season. Oh well, hearty sailors make do, I guess.
Hey, did you think I had given up on the big three, err two or something? I probably should have, many years ago, but well, here we are. At least One Piece wasn’t total crap.
Hello, there. There was a little bit of stuff I didn’t get to put in my regular 12 Day posts, so I am going to shove them in here just because I can.
Rage of Bahamut or Shingeki no Bahamut was a very good fantasy anime. When it aired, everyone was surprised by how the adaptation of a card game could have such a great first episode. The first couple of episodes did a great job capturing everyone. The anime changed a little in the second half (to the chagrin of many). It went from being a fun adventure to a more somber save the world kind of story.
This shift appears to have upset several folk though I didn’t mind it too much since some of my favorite, individual scenes happened in the second half. More importantly, the anime as a whole featured a great cast, some nice action and all around genuine fantasy greatness.
Garo is really, really good. It had a short, slow patch, but even then I found it thoroughly enjoyable. It is still ongoing and given what I have seen of it in W15, it may very well make it to my 2015 (this post is still technically 2014!) 12 Day list as well.
The Fate series has already been featured twice (1 & 2) before in my 12 Day posts, and it will be featured a third time for 2014 and likely a fourth for 2015 as well! It should be obvious by now, but I like this series a lot.
Unlimited Blade Works Part 1 was a lot of fun, but there actually isn’t much to say about what what was in it (most of the heavy plot stuff will supposedly happen in the second half).
Amagi Brilliant Park was well, uhh brilliant. It wasn’t the greatest show in the last decade or even the greatest in 2014, but it was still really good. I think in terms of overall quality, it might have been the most consistent show in 2014. Granted, the drama over Latifa and her memories was unnecessary, but eh, what can you do.
I am not going to bother sorting this anime into memorable or most memorable and instead, I will just list things.

For my eight or ninth 12 Day post, I generally do something a little different. I have talked about retro anime (anime that didn’t air that year) I watched, blog adventures and a greater appreciation of music.
This time around (2014), I feel like I came to a slightly better understanding of my own taste in anime and I figured that given the absence of anything else to talk about, I’d just talk about my own perfect taste in anime.
Barakamon is a true gem. I’d definitely rank it as one of 2014’s best anime. It was both heartwarming and hilarious.
(So, uhh as for what happened, well there is an explanation in bottom of this post. I am sorry for being tardy and terrible!)
