Also, I didn’t mention this last post, but I’m listing these impressions by the order of which ones I saw first.

(P.S. Feel free to comment, g-guys. I’m not t-that lame, am I?)

Mega End of the Year Podcast – Part 2 – Summer/Fall Seasons

Hey, it’s the second part of our mega end of the year podcast with your overly boisterous blogger, Deadlight, along with all the returning guests, Flawfinder (Standing on my Neck),

Deadlight’s Best of 2013 Anime

Er, h-hey readers of Frog-kun’s wonderful anime blog. This is that one guy from that one obscure and not as w-wonderful anime blog, Deadlight’s Anime Blog (took me forever to think of that title. Clever, don’t ya t-think?)
Even though I lack the charismatic, c-charming, creepy and all around brilliant personality of Frog-kun, he asked me if I could take over his blog for a while. Guess he said our humor was alike…
*Wipes away sweat and looks down at note cards only to drop them*
Uh, anyway I’m just here to fill the time while he’s out partying in the Philippines and hopefully I can entertain you readers rather than alienate you. S-so, uh, for the next few weeks  expect a couple first impressions of the Winter season, a mega end of the year podcast I recorded with 8 other bloggers and maybe an editorial. I don’t know. But to start things off, I guess I’ll post my favorite 2013 anime and also the waifu of the year so you can kinda get a look into just how shit my taste is. I’m not including anime that aired in 2012 and just finished their run this year. And, uh, without further ado, let’s get to that list…
Please don’t kill me. Read the rest of this entry
