First, an open letter to Netflix: screw you. Nobody is ever happy about you guys getting the license to an anime, because for some reason you don’t seem to understand that anime fans like to watch things as they air an episode at a time. Literally no one wants to wait until the show has finished airing and then watch it all at once. Legal streams are supposed to combat piracy, not encourage it. I have a personal policy where I try not to watch anything that I can’t watch legally (although I do sometimes have to make exceptions for First Impressions), but I couldn’t pass up a new Fate and I wasn’t going to wait 6 goddamn months to see even one episode. For that reason, as awesome as this first episode was, out of sheer good faith I won’t be blogging it, but I’m still doing this first impression after resorting to fansubs. Seriously, screw you Netflix, get a clue already. At least don’t act surprised if people aren’t willing to wait for a show you’re holding hostage for 6 months when literally ever other licensing company in this day and age does simulcasts.
- You have no idea.
I kinda miss reviewing stuff after having a break last season, and I almost thought that nothing decent was gonna air this season either. Luckily, even though this show is far from perfect I ended up liking eps 2 and 3 of Oushitsu Kyoushi just enough for it to be my blogging show. Will it be decent? Will it be disappointing? Who knows, that’s what reviews are for.
My mad dash before episode 8 airs continues.
HOO BOY so I was without internet on my computer for about 3 weeks, and yes, it sucked. It also means I haven’t been able to watch anything since then (although every single person on the internet seemed determined to spoil things for me anyway). So let’s see if I can crank these out before episode 8 airs!
