Hey all, sorry that this was such a belated first impression review. (I at least managed to get the review out before the second episode aired, whew!)

With that out of the way, I have to be a bit frank about my current situation. I admittedly feel a bit burnt out on anime reviewing. I am also planning to move into a new place fairly soon, and am still juggling work and job searching on top of that. These factors make me very reluctant to take on a show to review and blog all the way through to the end. I simply don’t have as much free time as I used to. There are still a few anime episodes I need to check out before making my final decision, so there is a chance I may stick to reviewing something but just make my posts much briefer. However, if you don’t see me around in the next couple of weeks… then that basically means I’ve taken a break. Don’t worry–I’ll still be back by the end of the season for another big round-up review post no matter what ends up happening.

The lady pictured in this screencap is actually the main character’s MOTHER if you can believe that.

In this week’s Blend S review, Ariana takes a silly anime way too seriously.

I should just make this screenshot be the entire review.

At least we’ll always have Sachiko, still the best anime mum.

My last FI of the season. If you’re wondering why it took so long for me to do this review, it’s because this is a 3:30 minute anime and I make it a rule not to review one episode of an anime short unless it’s over five minutes.

Get this piece of garbage out of my face.

I still have no idea what Ekuu is supposed to be but his design’s grown on me.

Very nice animation, but… please kindly tell me what the hell is going on.
