I wasn’t the biggest fan of this season, though I feel like I say that every season. I always think that a season is going to be horrible and I’m going to have to write a majority of “Avoid Watch”. I don’t know what it is about my negativity that makes it seem like I’m anti-anime or some stuck up snob, but I really should give things a better shot. Thankfully the anime that I was looking forward to actually ended up meeting all my expectations. Even the ones that I wasn’t too fond of seem to be heading down a pretty good path. I’m a little afraid that I have far too many anime to watch that I wont have time to review everything, but I’ll try my best! I haven’t forgotten about Summer 2013 so don’t worry guys. As usually I’ll be color-coding all the titles with worth picking up, on watch, and dropping.
