The Wandering Witch Examines the Monster Girl Doctor
Welcome, all, again. This last was a slow viewing season for me, with my favorite genre (slice-of-life) severely underrepresented. Only three new shows managed to catch my interest, and one of those was quickly jettisoned. So today we'll look at Monster Girl Doctor, an homage to the throwback idea that anime exists solely for awkwardly needy, nerdy otaku who spend all day fantasizing about girls

The Wandering Witch and The Misfit of Demon King Academy
Welcome, all, again. Since last my last column appeared here, Corona-chan swung by briefly (I tested negative, thanks!); my profession has been even further vilified; and Memphis regressed from Phase 2 back to Phase 1, devastating the local economy. All of which segues nicely into a discussion of The Misfit of Demon King Academy

The Wandering Witch Warns Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!
Welcome, all, again. We are transitioning from a particularly bountiful viewing season, and one of my favorites was yet another anime about anime, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! Here we witness passion and drive yoked to the creative spirit, simultaneously explored in a variety of ways--including the resounding slap of Machiavellian diplomacy and manipulation.

The Wandering Witch as Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl
Welcome, all, again. I recently raided my backlog of series-to-be-watched and pulled out 2011's Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl--literally pulled it out of my DVD collection, where it's lingered for who knows how long, now? It was time.

The Wandering Witch Witnesses the Ascendance of a Bookworm!
Welcome, all, again. A new viewing season is upon us, with generous offerings in a number of genres. Today's topic, Ascendance of a Bookworm, is an isekai story focusing much more strongly than usual upon the protagonist's adjustments to the mundane elements of her new existence (although her sudden youth probably precludes any more assertive role).

The Wandering Witch Reminisces with Gunslinger Girl
Welcome, all, again. As regular readers will know, I tend to gravitate towards slice-of-life series. However, I might seem to some to be a bit generous with that designation, including series that obviously belong to other genres. My own position is that most living things--works of art included--have multiple facets to their being, thus enabling me to focus upon some aspect others might overlook.

The Wandering Witch Declares If It’s for My Daughter, I’d Even Defeat a Demon Lord
Welcome, all, again. Today I'm excited to discuss the new fantasy/slice-of-life anime If It's for My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord. To be honest, I had only heard of this as a light novel series; I didn't even realize that there was an anime version planned.

The Wandering Witch Flies High with The Magnificent Kotobuki
Welcome, all, again. As we settle into a new viewing season, today's subject will be the just-concluded The Magnificent Kotobuki, which might surprise regular readers who know how much I normally dislike CGI animation. (And new stuff in general. But, hey, I'm old and grouchy. And I've earned it, too!) Now, don't get me wrong--CGI animation can come in very useful for particularly detailed images, especially of a mechanical persuasion.
