What I watched in Winter 2019

Another season of anime is behind us! We are already one-quarter into 2019… Just as I did at the end of the Fall 2018 anime season – I’m gonna go through all the anime I’ve watched in Winter 2019, be it seasonal, non-seasonal, or a rewatch.

Last winter was my favorite anime season to date, with series like A Place Further than the Universe, Yuru Camp and Violet Evergarden all airing at the same time. Can this year’s winter season compare to that? Make your own conclusions as I will list the anime I am most likely to watch in Winter 2019, based on their PV, synopsis and genres. Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari (MAL link) This is an anime whose first episode I have already seen, as it has pre-aired at the end of December. The first episode is 45 minutes long. It’s an isekai with a twist – the main character has been falsely accused of assault and is known by the world for all the wrong reasons. He lacks the thrust of others, and lacks Continue reading…
