I find a lot of people tend to be cynical when they look back on an extended period of time for any type of media or pasttime - they might enjoy a few things but then when they look back, they give a resounding, "Meh, overall it sucked," but I don't feel that way about the anime of 2013 at all. Overall, I'd say it was a pretty damn good year for anime, though there were plenty of duds as usual. And I will be covering a couple of those, don't worry!
Anyway, to apologize for taking so long to get started on this special reviewing event, I decided to hunker down and get the biggun out to you, the review of my Retrospective list that's arguably the best of them all, though if you feel different, let me know! Without further ado, click the link ahead to check out my review of Attack on Titan! Enjoy! :D
Attack on Titan
As for the rest of the reviews, they'll be coming......soon? I hope. ^^; I'll likely only do one or two at a time so I don't go nuts, but now that the art is out of the way, the reviews themselves should come through with less distraction. If you want to know what's coming, well, just take a gander at the art above, and you'll figure it out. ;)
Please please PLEASE click on the "Larger Version" link for the above art, 'cuz it's a giant piece and it looks so much better when you can see it bigger. I slaved endlessly on this one. Ever since Attack on Titan aired, I knew my Retrospective would have to be Titan-themed. And then I realized I'd need to draw every character in AoT themed uniforms, which caused a mini-panic attack. I don't trust my ability to draw all of that perfectly in one go, so I drew each character separately and then added them to the background which was also drawn independently. So if it looks like some characters have different outline thickness than others.....that's because they do and I slapped this all together like patchwork. >_< But I'm real happy with it. It took forever, and despite the many many mistakes I made on the uniforms, I wouldn't change a thing. ^^
