Filler Post 2

No real structure to this post. I’m also planning on copying this post over to the new blog to give it more stuff.

Let’s start out with Hitori no Shita: The Outcast, a series that wasn’t part of the chart I used in my Summer Preview post. Normally, I would just ignore it and move on with my life, but it actually fits my style a bit, so I guess I have to mention it. The show is based on a Chinese webcomic about people with supernatural powers. The synopsis seems to suggest a zombie-focused series, but it also makes it sound like those aren’t the main enemy…like the zombies are just a mechanic to get the main character into the plot. Or it could be a manifestation of my own hopes because I really don’t think I can handle another zombie series.

I’m not too familiar with the common themes of Chinese series, but the manhua that I have read tend to be darker and more gruesome than the Japanese series I read. I don’t know whether that’s my own personal bias or an indication of the medium as a whole. Take it as you will. I mean…the series certainly sounds like it should be interesting.

Random ReLIFE

Another announcement for this week was that the entire 13-episode run of ReLIFE is going to be released at once, rather than the typical weekly release format. I still have no idea how I’m supposed to react to this, so I’ll just do the gut reaction. I’m someone who doesn’t like feeling “behind”, so my first impression is “I’m going to watch all of the episodes within the first week after they release”. However, this makes blogging rather complicated. The current plan is to still blog ReLIFE weekly as I would a normal series, but I’m starting to think it might make more sense to cross it off the list of airing series and just release a single-post review on the series after it comes out (maybe two posts, one spoilerific and one spoiler-free?).

  1. You just managed to convince me to watch Hitori no Shita The Outcast D: Why???? D:

    Watching ReLIFE will probably be difficult for me in this format since I usually tend to prefer watching things weekly. Maybe I’ll be able to trick myself into thinking one comes out each week or something and just DLing the episodes then…

      well, i have a history of binge-watching stuff not airing, so i should be good. i usually like watching stuff weekly because it keeps me consistent, but i can do it either way, honestly…

  2. ReLIFE is kind of hard to classify because technically it’s come out in Summer 2016 but pretty much everyone is done watching it before the other anime have even come out. By the end of the season will anyone even remember it?
