Suzunoki Rin

And, at last, we have the mid-season impressions of the season! First however, I must point your attention to the Kumamoto earthquakes that have devastated the island of Kyuushuu in southern Japan. I can only help in my very small way to pray for them and ask that others pray or even send help to them, even if it is a very small gesture. They need all the support and help they can get.

KonoSuba - Aqua

And after an extremely long break of not doing this due to life, games, and other reasons, I guess it is time I bring back some of my impressions in order to let you know how things stand for the season.

Read on to find out how each series stands after the usual 3-episode test.

Velvet Winter by Cait

The new year is upon us, and with it brings the traditional end of the last season of anime. However, going by usual standards, I suppose winter is the first anime season of the year for most. Once again, the conventional thoughts surrounding winter anime seasons apply, in the sense that it usually has fewer shoes for people to watch, both in total and among the chosen. Will it be so once again this year?

On The Popularity of Assassination Classroom

Koro-sensei

Koro-sensei, the seemingly unbeatable target and arguably the real protagonist of the series.

Earlier this year, in my winter 2015 anime season preview, I mentioned that among the most popular of series that I, and I am sure many others, were looking forward to, was Assassination Classroom. 暗殺教室 (Ansatsu Kyoushitsu, hereafter referred to as AK) had extremely huge hype surrounding its animation release thanks to the manga. One of the reason I purported back then for such a large following might be the idea that, well, students do sometimes dream about being able to kill their teachers, and what better premise than an environment where you are supposed to do just that?

However, as I continued watching the series, I have come to a different conclusion. In fact, this post is perhaps long overdue, for my first ideas regarding a more possible reason (in my opinion, at least) were formulated around episode 3. I have allowed the idea time to mature, and I have come to firmly believe, indeed, that what I have thought since then is the real reason why this show is so well-liked. Indulge me, please.

A belated Happy New Year to the readers of NTP! It has been some days since the start of the year, and as of this post, the new anime season has actually already begun.

So without further adieu, let us jump into 2015 with the winter season anime.
