Log Time General Podcast #12 | Beginning of Winter 2018 — Winter’s Laid-Back Anime

We bust out of the beginning of the Winter 2018 season with some ridiculously solid shows to help us start the year out right. We all pretty much melt over the sheer level of comfy coming from shows like Yuru Camp and Hakumei to Mikochi, we get into the fascinating but puzzling A-1/Trigger collaboration Darling in the Franxx, discuss our hopes and fears about Violet Evergarden, and almost pass out because we had so many dang good shows to talk about this season.

Log Time General Podcast #11 | End of Fall 2017 — The Gems of the Season

This podcast, we crawl out of the Fall 2017 season battered and bruised from the year behind us, but come up with some heavy-hitters and anime of the year contenders! We go deep into (read as: gush for what seems like hours) Just Because! and its incredible subtleties in storytelling, finally talk about a genuinely good 3DCG show a la Land of the Lustrous, check out a few other solid picks for the season, and we almost kill Matt and end the podcast over an almost-pun.

December 2017 / January 2018 Monthly Content Round-up

Hi, all! For our last round-up post, we kind of switched things up a bit, focusing on posts of our own from the blog that we really enjoyed from 2017. However, there was a lot of great content that came out in December, so we felt that it would be a huge shame if we just passed over the month altogether. To fix that, we decided to do a combined post for December 2017 and January 2018, and man were there some solid picks for this one. Get ‘em while they’re hot (from the last two months but hey they’re still warm in our hearts)!

The Backloggers 3rd Anniversary – Continuing the Rocky Journey

With 2017 finally coming to an end, I hope everyone is enjoying the start of a year, ready to put last year behind us. We’re already in the midst of the Winter 2018 season, and I can already tell that 2018 is gonna be a blast! Here at the Backloggers, we have some things we want to celebrate, some things to apologize for, and some things we want to announce, and what better time to do all of those things than on the 3rd year anniversary?

Yep, our blog is still alive and we’re glad to say that!

December 2017 Post Round-up: A Self-Reflection of 2017

Hey all. General Tofu here, and I’m back from the dead! For our December monthly round-up, we decided to do things a bit differently. 2017 has been a bit of a dumpster fire in some respects, and we really wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate some of the great things that came out of this year, including both shows we enjoyed, as well as posts we wrote and are pretty proud of. For brevity’s sake, we each have selected three shows each that aired this year (and one that didn’t) that we highly recommend, as well as three posts from our blog this year that we want to signal boost a bit, so help us ring in the new year with some good anime recommendations and some sweet Aniblogger content!

Log Time Podcast #29 | Origin: Spirits of the Past Discussion — A Vast, But Empty Land

This week, in our first cast covering solely a movie, we take a look at Origin: Spirits of the Past. We discuss the fascinating world the film begins but ultimately fails to flesh out in any deep way, the gorgeous animation and feel of it, and how we can’t help but feel like we’ve seen this film’s individual parts elsewhere.

Important Blog Update and November 2017 Monthly Content Round-up

Hey everyone, Mythos here.  November went by and you may have noticed a lack of updates on our part.  It’s funny, the three of us started this blog specifically because we enjoyed talking with each other about anime so much, we wanted to share our thoughts and talk to others about it.  Sadly, we’ve been pretty mute, haven’t we?
