Just one winter show lingering on...

3-gatsu no Lion 15-22! the end of season one. Yes! for another season this fall. Shimada and Gotou face off while Rei deals with some school attendance issues. And after Shimada wins, Rei joins his workshop. Shimada faces and loses against the current Meijin, Souya. Another season passes for Rei. Gotta love/hate relationship with the sports/game anime. Love that they lure you in with engaging characters only to have them lose. ~9/10 rating~ for a beautifully animated anime series that wasn't too much about shogi, but more about a young boy who seems to get stuck in a dark place in his head every once in a while. The supporting characters are well-developed the show does a superb job in showcasing their struggles and triumphs. I like that I can now identify the manga scenes in this 2014 Bump of Chicken Fighter music video.

ACCA 3-12! the end. The king and prince are introduced in episode 3. There's a coup d'etat in episode 4, but not the one Jean is looking for. And he finds out that his friend was ordered to watch him and is okay with it; insert subtle BL. The pacing of this show is pretty slow, but it's intriguing and the show makes me hungry for sweets and breads. We learn about Nino and Jean's past in episode 8, but you could see the plot twist due to the color of Jean's hair. ~8/10 rating~ for a stylish, laid-back anime. I wish the production had been better, but it was one of the more unique shows to watch this season. From everyone's summary of this show before it aired, I was expecting it to focus on Jean's cigarettes. :/

Youjo Senki 4-7! The show concludes Tanya's back story as she gets her own battalion and trains them. And then catches up to episode 1's timeline. It gets a little tedious with all of strategy talk. While Tanya is an intriguing character, the show represents the war and the supporting characters rather poorly. Who is fighting who for what in particular is still unclear and at this point all the other characters are rather bland. Dropped.
