Looking for my 2012 Anime Secret Santa review? Sorry, but you’ll have to wait a bit… (Updated)

RCA Indian Head test patternUpdate 1/1/2013: My Anime Secret Santa review of Sound of the Sky (aka Sora no Woto) is up!

You know that old saying about the best laid plans of mice and men? Well unfortunately all of my plans for the next few months went out the window when late last month (right around Thanksgiving) when I found out that we had lost a client, and hence, my job. So I’ve spent the month of December running around like the proverbial decapitated chicken looking for work, while working every little odd job that comes my way, not to mention also doing the typical busy-around-the-holdidays type stuff. Which means I have had almost no time to do other non-critical-survival-money-making activities; hence the often-late 12 Days of Kurisumasu postings, the horribly late PMX 2012 wrap-up, etc. And yes, my Anime Secret Santa review too. I could have probably pulled a few all-nighters and slapped together a review just in the nick of time, but I decided against it, because I really didn’t want to do a half-assed job of it — you, the audience, deserve better.

The good news is that I have actually managed to completely watch not one, not two, but all three anime that were assigned to me (it was the only way I was able to maintain my sanity during this crisis). And, after today, the holiday craziness will be officially over for me; and since the week between Christmas and New Years is usually pretty lax, I should have the time to sit down and bang out a review, and actually put a decent amount of time and thought into it.

When we received our Secret Santa choices way back in October, my initial plan was to actually try and review all three anime I was assigned. I should have known that this was tempting fate and that fate would somehow find a way to bitch slap me for my hubris. I may still do this eventually; who knows. But I will definitely post at least one review on or before New Years. So stay tuned!
