Spring 2014 ~ Abandoned Factory viewing list
April 2, 2014
The first episodes of the new anime viewing season are being aired over the next couple of weeks, so it is time for a site update. As I mentioned in my preview, I have just a couple of shows I’m interested in this season, with Ping Pong: the animation foremost amongst them. I also revealed that I am building an anime-blogging robot, named Alpha, to assist me with the reviews here at the Abandoned Factory, which means I will be able to pick up a couple more shows.
The final list for Spring 2014:
|Kindaichi R||April 5||Alpha|
|No Game No Life||April 9||Alpha|
|Escha to Logy||April 10||Alpha|
|Insufficient Direction||April 10||Joojoobees|
|Ping Pong||April 10||Joojoobees|
|Mekaku City Actors||April 12||Alpha|
I added Mekaku City Actors, and No Game No Life, because I thought they would be good shows for Alpha to watch. Mekaku City Actors is a Shaft production, and No Game No Life is Madhouse, so despite the fact that I don’t think I could stand to sit through the subject matter, they might be interesting shows visually. Insufficient Direction is a late add; I just think the premise (living with Hideako Anno) is a funny one.
Shows listed as being covered by me (Joojoobees) will actually be covered by both of us.
I probably will post sporadically, and Alpha’s reviews will begin later in the season, since she is still under development, but is intended to provide context, not episodic impressions. That being said, I’ll probably post something as soon as I have it, as part of my process of bringing her perception and analytic faculties online.
Happy anime viewing everybody!
** Update April 6: moved Insufficient Direction to April 10, which seems to be the Tokyo premiere; I think the earlier date was a premiere station that has early access to certain shows.
