As may be obvious by now, it doesn’t seem like I can keep up with blogging an anime this season after all – which is a disappointing decision to have to make. There’s a lot of interesting shows this season – especially Eizouken! – to the extent that I hope I still have time to do a round-up post at the end of the month, but trying to fit the reviews into my schedule has been causing me a lot of stress.
It’s been pretty difficult to figure out how to juggle reviewing on top of other things, because I do like doing it, and I like keeping this blog active. But I’m basically left with no other choice than to make some big changes to my reviewing process in order to streamline it. It’s something I plan to see if I can try out for the next anime season (which is already next month!).
Basically what I’m thinking of doing is paring the reviews right down to much shorter pieces of my thoughts and opinions and maybe removing the synopsis part entirely. The result will be that the reviews are shorter and quicker to write – which would also mean I can do more of them. The tentative idea is to do a weekly post with a bunch of thoughts of all the shows I’m currently watching. I haven’t decided if the First Impressions will also be pared down – that’s a decision for each reviewer individually.

At any rate, it’ll be getting a test-run soon. I’m sorry to anyone who genuinely enjoyed and will probably prefer my longer and more in-depth reviews, but it’s the choice between  having any updates and having no updates at this point.
(But maybe I’d make an exception for Case Files season 2 if/when it happens.)

Would they really be moeronpan reviews if they weren’t fashionably late? Gonna try to make this short and sweet so I can get up to date!

Welcome to the blog, girls.

Sorry for the wait on this one! Unfortunately, I didn’t have a lot of time this year so there’s a bunch of shows I didn’t get to see – and stuff like Beastars which was being held hostage by Netflix and not legally simulcast. But we did still get through a decent amount of the year’s offerings, so it’s time for the 2019 autopsy!


Before we start, here’s the usual set of disclaimers:
Disclaimer 1: Again, none of us watched everything that aired this year, so bear in mind that our individual picks are more drawing from the pool of ‘what 2019 anime I watched this year’ rather than ‘what 2019 anime aired this year’. It’s entirely possible that there are a number of fantastic  (and terrible) shows we never got the chance to see that deserved awards in one or more category.
Disclaimer 2: These are the opinions of the reviewers and some of these opinions may only be based on the first episode of each show.
Disclaimer 3: This feature is purely for fun and if you disagree with any of the views of any of the reviewers that’s perfectly fine, and you’re even welcome to voice your disagreement for the sake of discussion in the comments…just don’t be a moron about it.
Disclaimer 4: There’s spoilers, it’s kind of hard to avoid it – particularly for ‘best scene/episode’. Because of this, we’ve decided that from 2019 onwards the ‘Best scene/episode’ reviews will be at the end of the feature, so anyone wanting to avoid the spoilers can read the rest first and stop there if they want to.

So without further ado, let us begin the Moeronpan Anime Awards, 2019 edition! (more…)
