On my Radar for Fall 2022: Shinigami, Chainsaws, Spies, Witches, and Homoerotic Treasure Hunting

Four Years of Shallow Dives in Anime: Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragons

Every year I decide to choose a series to celebrate the blog’s anniversary. Often times this is a series that has dogged my footsteps for a long while. A series that settles in my brain and lingers there, begging for me to talk about it. I often use this time to finally dive into that show and give my thoughts, feelings and frankly, just expel it from my system.

The first year, I re-watched Shinmai Maou no Testament and made peace with the series that made me start blogging.

The second year, I looked at Chivalry of a Failed Knight, something that had haunted my mind for almost two years.

The third year, I finally watched all of Neon Genesis Evangelion and gave my thoughts far removed from the mountain of hype that fanbase had thrown on it.

This year, I come to a series that came across my desk and kept a place in my brain ever since. A show that came out during my wilderness years away from anime, yet one I am surprised I hadn’t watched until then. It’s got boobs, it’s got butts, it’s got robots, it’s got lesbians! There is no point in waiting any longer.

Welcome to Shallow Dives in Anime. This is Cross Ange: Rondo of Angel and Dragon.
