Anime Winter 2018 Season Review: Part 1

I have not written many posts on the past season, but I managed to keep up with nine anime.*  Yes, that’s one more than I noted in my mid-season review and two more than I started with.  This season displayed good quality overall.  None of the following shows fell below three stars.  At the same time, none rose above four.  I thought that Kokkoku: Moment by Moment might have broken into the masterpiece or classic range, but it did not do enough with its unique cast and setting.  The plot slowed down after the first third of the show, and not much really happened over the course of twelve episodes.

Anyway, the following season review will be broken up into two parts.  The first part includes the bottom four.  The second part will include the top five.  I hope to have that out tomorrow.

Sake 3

The creators probably intended for real persons to be named, but all of the movie stars I would name are well past their prime or deceased.  (I’m a huge fan of old movies.)  Also, my dear readers are likely more interested in anime characters than, say, classic stars of cinema like Sophia Loren.   Considering the wide range of personalities among anibloggers and that 82,380 female anime characters now exist according to Anime-Planet, these “top hotties” posts tend to be more interesting than one would initially think.  May my choices encourage you to check out some of the anime in which these heroines star!
