Entry #22: Sora yori mo Tooi Basho (SoM/A 2018)

place farther in the universe 5

Let’s see what I watched during the Winter season of 2018:

Violet EvergardenKoi Ameagari, and the Basilisk sequel, which I never finished. Two decent shows, but nothing super substantial.

It’s not really funny, especially when there are points in the series where it feels genuinely serious in its tone. Those points are what make this series worth watching. (more…)
