Fall 2010 Lineup

It feels so good to close a lineup, but I know I cheated a bit because I took on an old lineup. These are all the anime of Fall 2010 I reviewed, and it’s a pretty short list. I think there are eighteen anime in it, and it’s a small number compared to current lineups. Spring 2014, the last lineup I tackled, had 33 anime it so I really played it safe with this lineup. Still, it feels good to accomplish a short term goal and get a good pace in watching/reviewing anime. Hopefully I can keep this pace going as I try and go back to the current lineups. It’ll hurt though, but I’ll see if my body can take it.

It’s been a very productive year for me, both as TPAB and the normal guy behind him. I’ve gone very far in both my professions: a teacher and an anime writer, and I hope I can keep going forward from here on out. I take it one step at a time, and it does give me good results if I just keep on doing what I’m doing. As we head into 2016, I do want to thank all my readers for the great support. I know I’m not as active as I used to, but you guys still clicked on the reviews I do churn out. Thank you very much. This 1000 anime journey of mine has been a rough one so far, but I am still enjoying it. I can see 500 reviews in the small horizon, so I just gotta keep on trudging.

As always, the shows are grouped by score for easier consumption. For a quick explanation: 9s are highly recommended ones that are entertaining through and through. 8s are solid shows that I’d recommend, because the viewing experience is something I find enjoyable. 7s are good shows, but there are some faults that affects the overall product. 6s are decent shows with great positive aspects but also noticeable negative ones. 5s are boring but still good enough to be entertaining if you’re patient enough. 4s are bad shows, but a special niche audience can still find it doable. 3s are boring and bad. 2s are something I consider an abomination. There you go, I hope you all enjoy.

Psychic Detective Yakumo Review

This is review number three hundred and thirty five. This anime is part of the Fall 2010 lineup. The anime I’ll be reviewing is called Psychic Detective Yakumo or Shinrei Tantei Yakumo. It’s a thirteen episode anime about some stuff involving ghosts, and there’s also a hot guy in it. I mostly rant in this review though, so let’s just read on.
