Ah, winter break and a season of anime wrap up at the same time! Again, I didn’t have anything I was actively watching from previous seasons carry forward into this one.

Haikyu — Smudge watched the first series of this a year ago, and she talked me into watching it and the new series when it restarted. It’s good; volleyball is not a sport that I ever got into (well, that’s almost all sports), but it’s very well done, with good characters.

Utawarerumono: The False Faces — Our group really enjoyed the original series, and I was looking forward to this one. The beginning was fine, and started looking like there could be a good story, but then the second half turned into a bunch of character introductions, and tying into the first series. It looks like there’ll be another season, and I hope the plot gets into gear.

Beautiful Bones — It wasn’t until about episode 3 that Smudge became impressed with this one, and had me start watching it. And it certainly does get better as it goes along, and they start dropping some of the overly-dramatic touches.

Heroic Tale of Arslan — I’m still not caught up to this, but I’ve seen partway through the second season now, and I’m continuing to like it. I do wish the novels would come over here though.

One-Punch Man — Smudge recently went for Hulu’s new commercial free subscription, and immediately found this. It’s a very silly superhero farce, and I’ve only seen about half of it so far, but it’s been very good.
