2019 Year in Review

As predicted, I encountered many wonderful new (and not so new) stories this year.  I could not have predicted these would be on my list (mostly), and for the first time I’m going to include a sizable list of honorable mentions (because it’s my list and I can do as I please)! Read more

Fruits Basket Season 1: A Review-ish Thing

I considered saving this for my traditional year-end highlight list, but opted to give this show its own post because A) I have a ton of thoughts on it RIGHT NOW that I wish to express and B) I have a ton of thoughts on it which would inevitably take up no less than half of that post and still not really do them justice.  So I’m just taking some time to write said thoughts down and dedicating a whole post to it, though it’s not really a proper review.  If you want a review, here it is: If you’ve ever had the slightest interest in Fruits Basket, watch this show.  It is beautiful.

Since I’m not starting a new series this year, I figured I’d celebrate the new year with a list!  This is not a “best of 2017” list – it’s just a list of some stories I’ve encountered this year (mostly from 2016-17, but not all) that made an impression on me which I believe merit some more attention.   Read more
