Anime August: The Plan


The third year of Anime August means I can call this a regular feature, right? Looking back over my previous years, I have a habit of being overly ambitious with how much anime I’m going to watch over the month – much like my targets for the yearly challenges, maybe I need a big dose of realism next year?

This year I’m going to pick 10 series and 10 movies to watch and work my way through the lists, I think that will be manageable. As always, I’m going to say I’m going to review the things I’ve watched, but will I? Who knows.

Here are my lists!


  • IDOLiSH7 Third Beat!
  • Kaguya-Sama Love Is War (first season)
  • Run With The Wind
  • Bartender
  • Made In Abyss
  • O Maidens¬† In Your Savage Season
  • My Love Story
  • DAKAICHI – I’m Being Harassed By The Sexiest Man Of The Year
  • WAVE!! – Let’s Go Surfing!!


  • Only Yesterday
  • In This Corner Of The World
  • Penguin Highway
  • The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
  • Ni No Kuni
  • Bubble
  • Violet Evergarden: Eternity and The Auto Memory Doll
  • The Tatami Galaxy
  • Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
  • Lu Over The Wall

I think these lists feel quite varied, and I’m looking forward to cracking on!

2021 challenges, Anime

Anime August (Again!)


We’re in August, who can believe it? Much like 2020, my anime progress for my challenges has been really slow progress, so I’m going to boost it again with Anime August. Plus, I really enjoyed having a dedicated month for something last year as it keeps me more focused.

Here’s what I’m going to be attempting to watch this August! I’ve tried to be more realistic than last year, when I was really overly optimistic.


  • Bartender
  • Fruits Basket The Final Season
  • Hakkenden
  • Kamisama Kiss
  • Kiss Him, Not Me
  • Moriarty the Patriot Part 2
  • My Love Story
  • Norn9
  • O Maidens in Your Savage Season
  • Photo Kano
  • Starmyu
  • Way of the Househusband
  • Welcome to the Ballroom
  • Zombieland Saga season 2¬†


  • The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
  • In This Corner of hte World
  • Lu Over the Wall
  • Napping Princess
  • Penguin Highway
  • The Red Turtle
  • The Cat Returns
  • Laputa
  • The Tatami Galaxy
  • 5 Centimetres Per Second

Wish me luck!

Anime August


A challenge within a challenge! As I’m falling behind schedule on my #cs2020challenges, I thought I need to boost my anime watching. I’ve been playing a lot of games at the moment and neglecting my anime, and I do really miss it so I thought I’d focus on anime for a while, and who doesn’t love a bit of aliteration?

I’ve made a list of things I want to watch in August, it might be a tall order, but I’m committed! This is a combination of things that are already in my physical collection that are definitely overdue a watch. As there are 5 weekends in August, and a bank holiday, I’ve also got a small list of films, because I figured I could at least manage one or two films a weekend!

Here’s the list of series:

  • Beyond the Boundary
  • Haven’t You Heard, I’m Sakamoto
  • Kamisama Kiss
  • My Love Story
  • Norn9
  • Photo Kano
  • Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Girl Senpai
  • Seraph of the End (season 1 and 2)
  • Starmyu
  • Another
  • Re:ZERO
  • March Comes In Like A Lion
  • Beastars
  • A3
  • Days
  • Dive!!
  • K-On
  • Kings Game
  • Sing Yesterday for Me
  • Zombieland Saga
  • Made in Abyss
  • No Game No Life
  • Parasyte The Maxim

And films:

  • Anthem of the Heart
  • Fireworks
  • In This Corner Of The World
  • Lu Over The Wall
  • Mirai
  • Penguin Highway
  • Promare

What do you think? Can I make it through all of this anime?
