Hello readers and welcome to a new series on my blog, I’ve decided that midway through each month I’m going to let you guys know what I’m watching, whether that be currently airing anime or if I’m sitting down and to finally watching a series I have not watched yet or rewatching an old favorite of mine.
I have admittedly not been watching as much as I usually watch this month due to… well those who follow me on Twitter will know I have been having so much fun playing Final Fantasy XV with all the lovely photo’s courtesy of Prompto that I have been sharing!!
Here we go with what I have been watching in the month of December!!
First off let’s get the most obvious one out of the way, I am of course still watching Yuri on Ice and I am loving every moment of this Sports anime!! I love underdog stories and that might have been what drew me in and like many others I have also loved the fanservice but if I am completely honest there is one other element to this show I am loving more than any other. I’m going to call it right now and say that Yuri on Ice has my favorite anime soundtrack this year and believe me that is saying something especially comparing it to another series I am watching this season. Hearing the songs for each performance of the skaters gives a glimpse into the personalities of the each performer which is so much fun!
Speaking of music the second series I have been loving in the current season has to be Classicaloid an anime I have not seen a lot of people talking about. As soon as I heard the opening tot he series I was glued to my seat with this hilarious slice of life comedy series that has brought back some of classical music greatest genius’s. My favorite character by far is definitely Beethoven, his obsession for Gyoza is pure hilarity and the music for this series, as a lover of classical music myself (I’m just full of surprises) the premise of this series was enough to peak my interest and I have to put this down as a must watch, plus I love the art style which somewhat reminds me of the opening to Gosick.
Both Keijo!!!!!!!! and Gakuen Handsome are definitely what I would call ‘Guilty Pleasure’ veiwing this season, but they have been so much fun to watch I just could not find myself dropping them. The level of self awareness within Gakuen Handsome’s each short episode has me losing it laughing every single time.
Girlish Number is an anime with a premise that did intrigued me on the first watch, but I could not find myself getting into it and the same I can say for Occultic; Nine, Flip Flappers, Cheating Craft and Scorching Ping Pong.
Older anime I have picked up to finally get around to watching this month include Anisava and Ojisan and Marshmallow and I have been re-watching Saint Young Men for the upcoming review.
I have also since having access to Yugioh on Crunchyroll been chilling out some days and just binge watching the original yugioh which I have been a fan of since I was teenager and it has been cool watching it uncut and subbed! I plan to eventually watch all the Yugioh on Crunchyroll.
I’ve also finally finally got around to watching Dragonball Super and I cannot wait to watch more of Goku and the gang!
And that’s the anime I have been watching this month, is there anything I have dropped that you think I should give another chance or have you been watching the same shows as me? Let me know in the comments below!
