Come and Vote!
The time has arrived once again to say goodbye to another great season of #anitwitwatches. For our fourth watch we settled on Girls’ Last Tour for a change of pace after School Days. Don’t fret though! We’ll be preparing to move on to a new show after next week. That’s where you come in! Below I’ll leave a link to our vote on Twitter where you can help decide what we’ll be watching next. Keep an eye out as we’ll be announcing the winner alongside the concluding thoughts for Girls’ Last Tour on 3/16/20.
I’ll be reviewing Girls’ Last Tour shortly after the watch concludes, so please look forward to that as well!
What is #Anitwitwatches?
This is a community initiative I started a few months ago where we get together and collectively watch an anime. Then, we talk about it on Twitter using the hashtag #anitwitwatches. The first ever watch was for Tonari no Seki-kun which was a lot of fun. You can view more information on the watch, as well as my review on Seki-kun here.
Our second watch was for Rampo Kitan which I had already written about previously, so that review won’t mention the watch at all. However, you can find all of the threads about any previous watch by searching the hashtag on Twitter or by clicking the linked #anitwitwatches right here.
As mentioned above, our third watch was for the infamous School Days! It wen’t over really well and has even lead others to watching the show some time after the watch has concluded. You can find those thoughts linked above and via the hashtag mentioned in the previous paragraph as well.
Why is X Show on the Poll?
As I mentioned last time, each show was carefully considered using a series of criteria to ensure that this activity remains fun and varied each time. Due to some oversight with the last voting round on my end and the heavy nature of School Days, I’ve elected to largely mix up the poll for this new season of #anitwitwatches. A short summary is provided below and in the actual voting thread above as well.
- Wandering Son – This is a carryover from our very first watch, it just keeps almost winning! There seems to be a lot of interest in it and I’m all for watching it. This made my Top 20 Anime of the Decade list awhile back if you wants some quick thoughts.
- Rolling Girls – A CGDCT show with just enough depth to be interesting week-to-week. Very colorful and fun!
- The Pet Girl of Sakurasou – This is a story about failure, but learning to push on even in the face of adversity. For creatives like us, it’s perfect! The show is a 24 episode one, but don’t let that worry you. It’ll work just fine 😉
- Death Parade – Lately this show has been at the forefront of discussion in various circles of mine. This has me itching to watch it, and I’ve wanted to put it on the poll anyway.
Join in the Fun!
So get to voting! I hope to see you for the next watch and would love to hear about shows you’d like to see added to the poll in the future. If you have any questions feel free to ask, I’d be more than happy to answer!
