We reach the final few episodes of season 2, aside from a few stragglers and I feel I’m making progress through this series at a surprisingly good clip. Jumping right from a trio of episodes detailing the revamped Mandalorians, we take a little side hop to focus another of Mandalorian heritage. Although at this point in the canon, who even knows if Jango Fett even was a Mandalorian or not. And Boba’s status is even more ambiguous. Doesn’t seem like there’s any eventually becoming Mandalore like he did in the old canon.
I never intended to write episodic reviews of any of the shows I’m watching this season, but after seeing episode four of God of High School, I couldn’t help myself but come on here and comment on what a weird, out of left field episode this ended up being. So I feel like this post is going to descend into more of a rant than proper review. So if you adored “marriage/bonds” for some reason, prepare to be triggered.
I’ve been watching a lot of anime these past few weeks. Some of it out of pure enjoyment, some out of the tense obligation I’ve created for myself to write a series in which I review three episodes of a new anime and decide whether I want to continue it or not. During this time, I’ve found myself jumping onto my favourite series as soon as an episode comes out, catching them once a week.
While other shows have been ones I’ve just watched back to back to back. Doing all of this, I’ve noticed that how I respond to an anime does seem to be impacted by how I consume it. In fact, there have been some shows I’ve really loved this year that I’m not sure I would have felt the same way about had I not binged a ton of it beforehand before catching up.
So it begs the question, is there a “better” way to watch anime?
