Secret Anime Santa 2017~ Shin Atashinchi, My Neighbors the Yamadas and Barakamon

Another year of anime I get amped up to see, another year I’m late.

There is a good reason for it this time. The anime series “gifted” to me this year was a punch to the gut that I needed. Sometimes you have to get hit low to look up! I say that because when I looked up the series recommended to me I asked, “What in the hell is this, Santa?! Get these present away from me!” Continue reading “Secret Anime Santa 2017~ Shin Atashinchi, My Neighbors the Yamadas and Barakamon”

Happy Birthday, Yukiho!

And a merry Christmas, if you’re into that sort of thing.

As a side note, there’s been quite of a bit of tooling behind the scenes here at idol notes, but nothing to show for it sadly (well, technically it is visible but neon boarders on the Twitter feed isn’t anything to gloat about). Humbug! However, you can get some Christmas action over at fellow blog site, Reverse Thieves.

As with every year, the site hosts a secret Santa event, but instead of exchanging gag gifts no one wants, participants recommend anime series that they think their selected recipient will enjoy based on their My Anime List or some such equivalent. Dozens of anime blog sites join in, then review the anime series or film that their secret Santa gifted them. Definitely join in if you have a blog yourself. Heck, you can even see the anime I reviewed last year is still on the featured header of this site!

I missed the deadline to enter for this year’s event …てへぺろ(・ω<), but it’s fun to see what other anime fans recommended and then read their impressions. You can even spot a few trends for each year– 2014 is showing a lot of love for Haibane Renmei. I’m not sure why that is, but it’s a great series. Someone also recommended Another, which is great too, but…

Although I don’t have an impression post on anime today, I do plan to look back at some highlights of series I watched this year. I hope to get to it soon, and a few other things before 2014 gets kicked out the door.

Just so this year’s Christmas isn’t a total bust at idol notes, here are some pretty fan artwork of the most angelic aidoru at 765Pro, from us to you. Enjoy!
