April 2017 anime roundup

New season, old anime. Because while I’ve tried a whole bunch of stuff this season, all the ones I’m really enjoying are sequels. Mind you, those sequels are really good so I’m not exactly complaining. Last season didn’t have much anime worth watching either, but the ones it did have were fantastic. If we go […]

January 2017 Anime Roundup
