I’d like to write reviews about all the shows I watch, but as a sophisticated hyperbolic discounter, I realize that’s not going to happen. To insure against the possibility of never voicing my opinion on a show, I created a one-liners page, which recently fell into disuse when I created a My Anime List account. To make up for it, from now on I’m going write Season Recap posts such as this one in which I briefly yet informatively comment all the seasonal anime I’ve watched.
