Merry Christmas 2021

Posted by DiGiKerot in Free Talk at December 25, 2021 on 1:01 am


Seasons Greetings, everybody!

It’s… sure been an entire year, huh? Believe me when I say that was entirely unintentional, but 2021 was sure a year. A year in which I mostly stayed at home and didn’t particularly want to sit typing a whole bunch of stuff whilst sat in front of the computer after having spent the entire day sat in front of the same desk for my day job, you know?

I had kind of been intending to write about Heybot, and I do have a backlog of Mikan Watch posts I could be making. I should really get to them soon.

Otherwise… I’m still watching about as much anime as I normally do, which admittedly tends to end up being not that much this time of year due to other things typically going on. The recent thing which generally sticks in my mind is the theatrical feature from earlier in the year, Pompo the Cineaphile, which you’ve probably missed in the cinema at this point if you are in the UK (though I gather has an upcoming US release). That movies a pretty good time.

Anyway, in the event that I completely forget to update again for the next year, I hope you have a Merry festive season, a good New Year, and that 2022 finds you all pretty good.

(Oh, Love Live Superstar was good, if you were really wondering what my opinions on recent Love Live cartoons were)


Merry Christmas 2020

Merry Christmas, y’all.

Guess I’ve not posted much on anything this year. You know how it is, I’m sure – much as I’d like to put it down to mostly being a busy year, it is also one I’ve mostly spent at home. This sure does mean I’ve watched a bunch of anime, but it also sure does mean I’ve been sat at my desk at home an awful lot, and at a certain point, I need to not be sitting where I do my day job in order to sit around and write stuff for the internet. I need space to unwind and all that.

Well, that, and I’ve been playing a bunch of Genshin Impact. Way too much Genshin Impact. An absurd amount of Genshin Impact.


Merry Christmas!

Because nothing says Christmas like Drive-In Tori, I guess?

Err, three months since my last update, huh? That’s… actually entirely unintentional. Certainly, been plenty of stuff I could have been writing about – SLA and my annoyance with I Want To Eat Your Pancreas, AnimeNYC, London Miku Expo and, well, just anime in general, but hey, life keeps one busy on occasion, and with age comes less wisdom than it does a perennial sense of exhaustion.

Still, I should probably write about at least one of those things still, maybe for the New Years post. We’ll see, I guess.

In the meantime, though, I hope the season treats you well, and you have yourselves a better 2019, regardless of how 2018 found you.


BW13th

Apparently it’s the 13th (scary!) anniversary of me taking up this particular, infrequently updated, corner of the internet, and because I’m terrible at remembering dates and forgot to draw anything new, I’m just posting something from my non-public images directory that only maybe six people know the context of because finishing projects is hard. I’ll leave you to ponder on the unexciting ramifications of it.

Anyway… despite best endeavours to post at least something every month, I guess I skipped August, despite the fact that I started drafting out an Otakon post-mortem (which, honestly, is mostly superficial thoughts on Release the Spyce). It was a busy month though – I was off in the US for the best part of a fortnight, and kind of been clobbered with work stuff once I got back. Next few months are going to end up pretty hectic as well, honestly – SLA in October, then Hibanacon and AnimeNYC in November. Not rest for… well, me. And I guess I do, actually, technically rest, and it’s not like I’m up to much in September.

Not that I’ve not been watching anime either, mind you. It’s been a pretty good season. I’m generally all in on the kids stuff these days – and the current Precure and Gegege no Kitaro both continue to be great on a weekly basis – but Planet With and Revue Starlight have both pretty consistently been knocking it out of the park, and the new Lupin is good, and I gather there are some other quality shows I’ve not been watching.

But, anyway, as I say, Scotland Loves Anime in a few weeks. Looking forward to Penguin Highway. Maybe I’ll actually remember to get around to writing something about it!
