Welcome to the Tenth #Anitwitwatches!
As winter comes into view and we move closer to the end of the year, it feels fitting that the 10th watch will be bringing us there! Not only that, but to my surprise, you all picked a winter themed anime: Kanon (2006). Hope you are ready for some tears, but don’t worry, like most Key stories things tend to have a positive spin by the end. I hope you’ll look forward to this (often overlooked) show! The watch begins 11/16/20.
Below you’ll find information on what the watch is as well as the schedule for the tenth season of #anitwitwatches. Thank you to everybody who has participated in the past and all of you who will be joining for the first time with this series!
What is #Anitwitwatches?
This is a weekly community event meant to bring folks together to revisit old favorites and discover new shows. It’s meant to be something you can get as involved in as you want, there is no pressure to participate every week or every watch, but we’d love to have you to share in the experience and discuss the shows we are watching all the same!
I was inspired to do this after seeing the “rewatches” that people do over at Reddit in the r/anime sub. Since I interact with a lot of you guys on Twitter, I thought it would be the perfect place to do something similar! That said, even if you do not have a Twitter you can still join in by posting any content via WordPress, YouTube, or whatever suits your fancy. If you do, be sure to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can share your wonderful creations!
For everyone else, simply watch the episodes for the week based on the schedule below. Make sure to use the hashtag, #anitwitwatches when you do, and that’s it! Discuss with the other folks participating, create content, and generally just have a fun time!
This next show was chosen based on YOUR votes, so let’s get to the watch schedule.
Kanon (2006) Schedule
As is our norm, we’ll be taking a short one week break before starting Kanon (2006). This is to give folks a brief break before jumping into a new show. I checked dates and there was no reason to take time off for Thanksgiving or Christmas, so there will be no additional breaks in this period. We will be keeping the Monday time slot for this watch after careful consideration and feedback.
If you have not done so, you can see where you can watch Kanon (2006) for free, and legally, by using because.moe. Unfortunately, I cannot realistically check all regions but I aimed to make this as accessible as possible. That said, I won’t stop you from doing what you need to in order to participate. The more the merrier!
Here are the dates (all Mondays) and the episodes for each:
That’ll make this watch 10 weeks long. I hope you’re excited to watch this one and I look forward to all the excellent discussion!
