Winter 2014 Anime Thoughts
This time around, it will be my own thoughts on the passing winter 2014 season. Next week I'll be doing my thoughts on the upcoming Spring season, so watch out for that!
I am going to be as vague as I possibly can be within context of describing a show. I will just give a basic summary on my thoughts, and not go into too much detail to avoid spoilers of any kind!

Biggest Surprise - Kill La Kill
Hear me out on this one. I'm not surprised at all on how massive a following this show got, as it is a result of the former people who made Gurren Lagann. BUT, at least at the time I write this, I never have finished Gurren Lagann, and in fact put the show on hold after watching three episodes as it didn't interest me at the time.
But after watching Kill La Kill, I may just have to sit down and watch through it, as I enjoyed KLK, despite it being of a genre I typically don't enjoy.
Be it just the pure absurdity of a premise, the overflowing action, or just the endearment of the cast of characters, I couldn't stop watching. It was a great ride from start to finish, and I am sad to see it over.
(But there is a special coming out in September of it supposedly!)
Biggest Disappointment - Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren, or Chunibyo Season 2
To start the season, Chunibyo season 2 wasn't on my radar as I had not seen the first. But after looking it up, I decided to watch the first season and thoroughly enjoyed it. Shortly after I decided to watch the second season with high expectations.
Those expectations came to let me down however, as hardly anything progressed at all in the relationship between the two main characters. This season just felt empty and lacking, without any central story or plot.
All that said, it was a very enjoyable season for me, despite most of the shows I enjoyed being carryovers from the previous season. There were some great shows, and I still have a few more I need to watch.
My only gripe would be outside the leftovers from the fall, it was a relatively weak season.
Now I ask you, what are your thoughts on the just passed Winter 2014 anime season?
