The Wandering Witch – Learns the Drop Rule
Welcome, all, again. I'm very excited about this month's review(!), having chosen to finally discuss March Comes in Like a Lion. In truth, I've been saving this one, letting the series ripen and develop before presenting its review. I am a passionate fan of slice-of-life, and I could not ask for a better balance of allure and unease, stoicism and wistfulness.

The Wandering Witch — Gets Left for Last
Welcome, all, again. We've begun a viewing season chock-full of magical girls and witches, and so--especially with October bringing Halloween--I just had to pick one such series for review. So I went right to what promises to be one of the best of the lot, Izetta: The Last Witch.

The Wandering Witch – Joins the Family
Welcome, all, again. I've decided to make good on my threat, so I'll be reviewing 91 Days, one of those often-referenced-but-seldom-seen "instant classics." That's right, they really do exist!

The Wandering Witch – Gets Scientific?
Welcome, all, again. We will in this column discuss one of those series acknowledged here last time for their beautiful artwork and strong stories--Alderamin on the Sky. Admittedly, this season has been characterized by unusually detailed artwork and attentive--dare I say, sometimes overly attentive--character development in a surprising number of shows. Even so, Alderamin on the Sky is special.

The Wandering Witch – Visits an Empty Restaurant
Welcome, all, again. I am incredibly excited about this season's offerings(!), a number of which seem to strongly emphasize artistry in both story-telling and visuals. But I am especially enjoying Sweetness and Lightning (sweetness & lightning on Crunchyroll.com), a show which explores the adaptive nature and strength of family.

The Wandering Witch – Cheers on the Bike Club!
Welcome, all, again. Even as this rather hit-or-miss viewing season winds down, I manage to remain impressed with the quality of certain programs. And one program that deserves special mention before it rides off into its sunset is the motorcycle-themed BAKUON!!

The Wandering Witch – Gets Shorted (Again)!
Welcome, all, again. As with the last few viewing seasons, we are once again being introduced to some fun new shorts. And, personally, I'm a huge fan of the style. Shorts offer a quick hit of anime when it might otherwise be difficult to fit in viewing time, or when you just don't have the wherewithal to watch a full-length episode.

The Wandering Witch – Flying, Frying, and Desperately Trying
Welcome, all, again. Let me begin by admitting that I have been completely overwhelmed by the choices this season, and have not had the chance to watch even half of what I wanted or planned. That said, I love what I have seen!

The Wandering Witch – Gets ERASED?!
Welcome, all, again. This is proving to be a glorious viewing season, with offerings for fans of all genres. I absolutely love KONOSUBA-God's blessing on this wonderful world!, a comedy/fantasy wherein a newly deceased youth coerces the goddess juggling his soul to accompany him to a world seeking heroes; likewise Ooya-san wa Shishunki!, a comedy short about a middle school landlady and her tenants.

The Wandering Witch – Tries New Things
Welcome, all, again. This is my first column of the new year, so it seems like an appropriate time to try something a bit different. Instead of straddling the viewing season change with my normal backward glance, I want to discuss some shows that have already impressed me.
