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.

As we’re already starting the Spring season, and I’ve not watched anything yet except Digimon, I’ll just follow up all the shows mentioned in the Winter 3 Episode Rule series and link to any and all relevant articles I’ve already written on that show. Here’s a link to all of my impressions of the series I tried and which ones I kept on top of.
