Anime Weekly: Fall 2015, Week 10

I don’t know when the season turned into “Concrete RevolutioMiss Monochrome and some other shows,” but that’s about where I am at this point.

First Impressions: Fall 2015 Anime (Part 2)

Actually, now that I think about it, I’ve never had a single day of the anime week on which every single show was good (of course, I’m not counting things I didn’t even bother trying), so this is even more of a welcomed rarity. The Lord’s Day brings its blessings…
