Once again another year has passed so it’s time to reflect on the past and to think about goals for the future. It seems there have been a lot of ups and downs in the past year so the review section is quite long. With that in mind the goals section is of similar length but please do stay around until the end of this wall of text.

The Smile Precure websites were updated recently so I felt like translating the official character and story materials. It pretty much reconfirms the rumors and leaked info we’ve already seen but it also has some nice new tidbits. First up are translations of information from Asahi’s Smile Precure site. Pictures are omitted since the other site has better versions.

At long last it is the final entry in Twelve Days of Amagami. I’ve saved stories for last since it features the 6 main heroines singing together. With this all currently released Amagami anime songs have now been translated by me. I really hope everyone found my song translations to be helpful. It took me a while but I truly did enjoy working on these. For anyone curious, yes, I will be translating the Amagami SS+ plus songs as well when they are released. I’m also thinking of translating the Amagami game songs too so if anyone is interested please ask me! Anyway Merry Christmas to all and please look forward to more Amagami next year!

Christmas Eve brings Rihoko’s For You song. I actually had to rewatch her arc because I was unsure if there was a secondary meaning behind “love” and “charm” which I had forgotten. Turns out it had to do with the made up story the older tea club members told Rihoko concerning choux crème. Anyway I hope she has better luck in Amagami SS+ plus. Please enjoy this nice song.

This was a fun song to work on. It’s pretty amusing imagining this playing while Miya’s trying her best to console Jun’ichi at the end of the year. Anyway this is the last of the Miya songs but I hope her fans enjoy it.

Today Sae gets another round in the spotlight. This song fits the events of her final episode incredibly well and it’s fun to imagine all the odd things that happen to her. Anyway please enjoy it and look forward to tomorrow’s song as well.

Today’s post is the third and last of Haruka’s songs from the original Amagami SS. It’s a really pleasant song to listen to. Please enjoy!

Here’s Miya’s second song which translates to something like You Know. A good portion of the song reminds me of the kitty part of her episode so I could imagine it being played as an insert song. Anyway look forward to more play biting tomorrow!

Today’s song is the ED for the Miya episode, Suteki na Aru hi, which translates to A Certain Lovely Day. This also happens to be another one of my favorite Amagami songs. I tried my best to add punctuations in the translation to mimic the emphasis that Miya puts when she sings the song for certain obvious reasons. Anyway please enjoy nishishi~!

With only a couple weeks left until the next year I decided to do my seasonal watch list now before the rest of the month passes me by. As usual the list is roughly in order of my overall anticipation though a lot of the shows on the lower ends are actually tied with many others. Most of what I’ll be watching are related to series and franchises I’m already following so the list of “new” anime is fairly low. Also as always I’ve skipped anything which has already started being released. Anyway onto the list.
