My anime diary: A Place Further than the Universe & Smile Down the Runway

I suppose I’m not the only one turning to the comfort of their anime backlog right now? I don’t feel like I have much patience at the moment and would much rather digest a finished story than be left hanging by one that’s still on-going.

Anyway, I figured I’d watch Smile Down the Runway since it seemed like a series with good reviews that I’d overlooked in the Winter season, whilst A Place Further than the Universe, one of the most beloved anime of the past few years, needs no introduction. Why did I wait so long to watch it? I suppose I needed to be in the right mood, and 2020 is definitely that!

Here’s my brief thoughts.

Listeners episode 1 anime review

Listeners is a welcome return to the imagination of writer Dai Sato. Just like his Eureka Seven, Listeners is an adventure in a desperate post-disaster world, a world set to be remade by the triple threat of music, love and giant robots!

The Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED episode 1 anime review

A fun and satisfying debut that feels in many ways like a throwback to late Nineties anime like The Big O and Cowboy Bebop, albeit with a less masculine and more homoerotic subtext for the Noughties.

The chaotic story of a responsible Dad that’s also a pervy ecchi manga artist.

Gleipnir episode 1 anime review

Gleipnir’s first episode pings between being a fascinating psychological thriller and a creepy erotic comedy. It starts weird and only gets weirder.

Sing “Yesterday” for Me is an easy anime to love and, quite frankly, I fell pretty hard for it.

Wave, Listen to Me! episode 1 anime review

In Wave, Listen to Me!, we’re dragged into Minare’s world: the world of a hungover and bitter adult, looking to regain some momentum in her life and ranting into the void whilst she waits.

Tower of God episode 1 anime review

In whatever medium, Tower of God is a messy story, filled with anachronistic touches, that’s somehow still quite addictive.

Winter 2020 anime season: a final say

The snow outside is melting, the birds are singing and the flowers are blooming. Ever so quietly, even as the world feels like it’s frozen in time, Spring has crept up on us guys, and with us now on the eve of another wave of new anime, I thought it would be fun to rundown how I ended up fairing with the Winter season.
