All Things Must Come to an End
This collab with Yomu has been a ton of fun! Watching Art Club each week has given me something extra to look forward to, as well as providing me with some unique ideas for articles. If you want to check out everything so far for episodes 1-11, you can do that here. Be sure to head on over to Yomu’s place and thank ’em for putting this thing together. Today I’ll be tackling a few themes from the list, which includes reviewing the anime on the whole. Let’s dive in on this final installment of the Art Club collaboration!

This is NO Classic
Throughout this collab with Yomu, I’ve stated multiple times that Art Club has been a show with some pretty big ups and downs. The show really does feel fairly average, occasionally peaking to just slightly better than that. Of course, Collette temporarily brings the show to a 10/10 when she’s on screen, though that is but a fleeting moment. So it really shouldn’t be any surprise when I say, Art Club doesn’t hold a candle to classic anime, but that’s OK.

Sometimes, it’s the Small Stuff
This time around for the Art Club collab, I decided to tackle a core theme. Usually on Yomu’s theme list, I take an episode specific one, but this time I went for an evergreen as we begin our way to the homestretch. This show has had its ups and downs, but the small things are what have largely made Art Club watchable. As such, that’s exactly what I’ll be talking about for today’s episode.

Seriously, click that above. That’s what plays through my head when I picture Collette.
For whatever reason when Yomu put up the themes for this episode the Collette ones didn’t get taken. Seeing that Yomu is also a big fan of resident best girl, I thought it would be a cryin’ shame if the not one, but TWO Collette centered themes went abandoned. Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to explain my favorite two moments featuring the lovable foreigner. Continue reading “This Art Club Has a Problem! – Collaboration with Yomu: Episode 9”
Character Growth is Important
In most shows, characters learn and grow as it goes on. That’s a great thing! Today I’ll be looking at how each character has changed in Art Club! for episode 8’s theme. With just a couple of episodes left, surely the signs of change can be seen in each character… right? Continue reading “This Art Club Has a Problem! – Collaboration with Yomu: Episode 8”

It’s finally time folks! The premier event YOU have been waiting for. Imari V. Usami, who will win Subaru’s heart?

My money is on Usami, the underdog.
That’s right folks, Usami seems to be the fan-favorite underdog here despite her horrible odds at 50:1! With that, let’s review these contenders statistics and recap the standings so far. Continue reading “This Art Club Has a Problem! – Collaboration with Yomu: Episode 7”
Secret Messages in Art
We are roughly halfway through this collab with Yomu now. Art Club! has had some ups and downs but it has been consistently enjoyable once it got over a bit of a hump at the start. This episode we got introduced to a new character, a lady Otaku who grabs Subaru’s attention. Tsk, tsk, Mizuki, you should have just taken some interest in his hobby when you had the chance, I mean he offered to lend you this cool thing he liked but you turned it down for being, “a boy thing” which was pretty stupid. Anyway, this episode I’m actually talking about the secret whispering of the art featured this time around. What shall we uncover? Continue reading “This Art Club Has a Problem! – Collaboration with Yomu: Episode 6”
Last week we took a short break from the collaboration here with Yomu so we could get the Showcase posted. However, we are back this week with episodes 4 and 5. You can check out all the themes and such for episode 4 here, and for episode 5 here. I chose a more unusual theme for episode 4, “liquids” and for episode 5 we’ll be talking about my favorite moment with Collette!
