Uh, what aspect ratio or dimensions did you use for your super images? Because these are displaying perfectly, and I'm still trying to figure out how to make super images display properly on my blogs.

Otherwise, this blog is awesome!

Loving the variety in your list. If you included quick reason or justifications for some or all of the games, I'd love to showcase it on the next GB Spotlight.

Huh, I almost entirely disagree with your award recipients, but hey, there's nothing wrong with that! Discussing anime is funner when you don't agree with people. Overall, I think this year was weak in regards to anime. Few shows exerted creative excellence, and the ones that did were based on pre-existing properties. My major impressions with some of your categories are as follows:

  • I have never been a fan of Trigger's directing and storytelling style, and found everything they did this year bad or disappointing.
  • SSSS.Gridman isn't a great story, and part of that stems from the overall cast feeling weak and the action set pieces coming across as Trigger pulling ideas from a playbook. I get why people like the show, but if you go in wanting it to be more than the sum of its parts, which is an issue I have with everything Trigger makes, you'll end up disappointed. It also does not help 50% of the show involves the camera panning up Rikka's skirt or zooming on her lower extremities.
  • I think any "Biggest Surprise" anime award should go to Netflix as a distributor. They have increased their anime portfolio and the quality of their shows is improving.
  • Zombie Land Saga is awesome, but it's is incredibly uneven in parts. The cast is great and deserves a better script with more consistent pacing and comedic situations that play to their strengths.
  • Golden Kamuy is a solid candidate for worst adaptation. I gave a similar award to Fist of the Blue Sky: Regenesis because its CGi is just straight up nightmare fuel.
  • I still do not know if Pop Team is an actually good anime or if it is just a meme factory.
  • I refuse to watch Goblin Slayer out of principle and do not care if it gets better.
  • This is the only good thing to come from Darling:

No write up again?

Well fuck me for not being able to listen I guess...

Sounds like there will be one "Mega Article" at the end with all of the winners:

@jeffrud: So uh... I get it might not be the time to bring this up, but I have to ask if this blog series will ever discuss the insanity that is Namco's "United Galaxy Space Force" canon?

I want to just say that regardless of the empowering message this game may contain, I support and stand by unions and their right to collectively bargain.

As such, I refuse to play this game.

And I thought I was the only one who had long-winded impressions about the state of the Final Fantasy series. I think the major problem here is Square has a horrible system in how they divert their revenue. Reports suggest most of their revenue now comes from mobile and FFXV, but they are funneling those sources of income into poorly managed "tent pole" projects like the FF7 reboot. So, their mobile and online games only get easy to develop expansions.

Maybe that new FF11 version will be cool. Or probably not because they'll rebalance everything so its easy and boring.

I don't want to cause this blog to go in a tangent, but are they actually rebooting Final Fantasy XI? Is that a real thing?
