Winter’s getting a good grip on the northern hemisphere, and I’d like nothing more than to get cozy and watch tons of anime – sadly, I still have work to do for a few weeks. But my holiday is coming, so for now I’ll keep content hunting down more fanart to share.
To start off, we may as well get into the Christmas mood, with the holiday being less than 2 weeks away. And here we have the girls from Sound Euphonium doing the honours. This second season has, in some ways, contained a lot more drama than the first, and no less tension between a and b – although it doesn’t look like the yuri lovers are falling for it this time.
The picture below is a magazine scan – I’m not sure from which magazine. Drop a comment if you know.
The latest Strike the Blood project recently released its first episode, and in true OVA fashion started off with a bit of fan-service. Not that I’m complaining.
I won’t lie – I actually really enjoyed the first season of the series – I like the story, I like the characters, and I have no problems with the character design and animation either. Add to that the fact that I’m enjoying the light novel series immensely, and it should be obvious that Strike the Blood has made it into my favourites list.

For the record – I have no idea what the (a) in the title is for. If anyone knows or has a theory – feel free to share in the comments. We’ve had Shirobako, showing us some of what goes on behind the scenes from a production point of view – and here we have Gi(a)rlish Number, which comes from the seiyuu side of things. Not exactly the first take of this nature, but this one has a pretty cynical leading character – pictured below.
Flip Flappers is an odd little series that caught my attention early on – and at this point I’m still not entirely sure what’s going on, although the series has started hinting at things. At least as far as I’ve gotten.

Watashi ga Motete Dousunda? was a delight early on in the season, but it has mellowed out a little to become a bit more pedestrian; many of the gags employed wear off pretty quickly after all. Which is not to say it’s a bad series – while I’m not a huge fan of reverse harems I do still find myself entertained by the show. Just not to the point where it’s a must watch as soon as the latest episode airs.
