Glancing Upstream: Spring 2018 Retrospective Digest

Plucking our favorite shows for the season’s bouquet!

An image from Golden Kamuy. Sugimoto and Shiraishi lie on their stomachs, admiring a golden flower poking out of the snow. They are smiling cutely.

While this season was a bit disappointing for me—a lot of shows with potential either never achieved it or actively shot themselves in the foot (‘sup, Amanchu)—I still made friends with a few series, as did the rest of the AniFem staff.

Click here for the AniFem recommendations for Spring 2018! From ragin’ red pandas to laid-back cafe boiz, there’s a show for just about every mood in this batch.

Podcast: Aggretsuko Retrospective

Rock ‘n’ Retsuko.

An anthropomorphic red panda screams into a microphone while a gorilla and a white bird dance behind her. All are wearing business clothes.

Unleash your inner rage panda and join Caitlin, Vrai, and me as we discuss corporate criticism, kawaii culture, dating debacles, and the fabulous female friendships of Aggretsuko, the surprise gem of the spring season.
