I recently responded to a comment on “On Anime Criticism” that got me thinking. Often, when I talk about reviews and criticism, people assert that it’s all just opinion.
I can’t possibly disagree more.
So, it’s the beginning of the season, and we all know what that means: It’s once again time for a cascade of “First Impressions” articles all across the anime blogging community. People are giving their initial reactions to the first episodes of the various anime that are starting to air.
Every season, part of me wants to join in, but I don’t.
