Review of 2010 Anime Part 4 ~Fall~

Fall has proven once again to be a very enjoyable season. Having so many shows airing certainly helps. I always feel a little overwhelmed with Fall and Spring anime wise though because there is just so much to check out.


The only 2 shows I didn't start were To Love-Ru and Pokemon. The first because I just haven't watched the season one of and honestly I have no real desire to watch it. It doesn't look like the type of show that I would enjoy in the slightest. The second being Pokemon well... I'm working on it very, very slowly with my Pokemon workout. I'm totally going to be starting that back up again come January.

I'm glad that I enjoyed this season a lot. There are only 5 shows that are under 5 out of 10 rating wise. I think that's pretty darn good out of 25 shows. I'm sad that it does hold the worst show of 2010 for me though. It would have held the best show as well but honestly Katanagatari is a pretty darn good pick for my 2010 best overall.

Yeah give it to her! haha

Best Show of fall for me aside from that adorable little dinosaurs would be Kuragehime. Every character was simply awesome. I'm completely in love with everything about this show it's impossible just to pick one moment.

Worst Show of fall for me without a doubt is Yosuga no Sora, actually no I'll make that one the worst overall for 2010. So next in line for fall is Fortune Arterial. Did anyone honestly even watch this show and enjoy it? Granted I didn't keep up with any chatter about it.

That's all I really remember from Fortune Arterial

Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of fall 2010:

  1. Kuragehime 10/10
  2. Omae Umasou da na 10/10
  3. Arakawa Under the Bridge 9/10
  4. Sora no Otoshimono 9/10
  5. Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto (still airing) 8/10
  6. Bakuman (still airing) 8/10
  7. Letter Bee (still airing) 8/10
  8. Otome Youkai Zakuro 8/10
  9. Ironman 8/10
  10. Shinryaku! Ika Musume 7/10
  11. Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru 7/10
  12. A Certain Magical Index (still airing) 7/10
  13. Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai 7/10
  14. Super Robot Wars: Original Generation (still airing) 7/10
  15. Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls 7/10
  16. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt 6/10
  17. Yumeiro Patissiere 6/10
  18. Togainu no Chi 6/10
  19. Hakuouki 6/10
  20. Psychic Detective Yakumo 6/10
  21. The World God Only Knows 4/10
  22. Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 4/10
  23. MM! 2/10
  24. Fortune Arterial 2/10
  25. Yosuga no Sora 1/10

I still laugh at this moment

Surprise enjoyment: Bakuman I personally can't believe I'm enjoying as much as I am. It's slow, slice of school life, and about making manga. I have pretty much NO interest in any of these subjects. Not to mention the romance thrown in here and there. So what keeps me watching and not bored to tears like most people with it by now? I honestly am not sure. I've just been really liking it. I think it heavily has to do with the characters though because they are just all amazing.

Surprise fail: Psychic Detective Yakumo not so much a surprise as a disappointment. I watched the first episode like everyone else and had the grrr reaction to it. The very end held my interest but it still failed. This show made me very sad because I was so looking forward to it.

Honorable mentions: Omae Umasou da na DINOSAUR! Enough said. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt I didn't enjoy for the most part but I give credit where credit is due generally and it certainly deserves some of that. It was totally unique in a strange and odd kind of way. Yumeiro Patissiere what kind of ending was THAT?! I'm still very angry that they changed the OP from the amazing fluffy macaroon song to the shitty who know what OP. Don't get me started on the lame ending. They should have just kept going with the other series or nothing at all. This is why I generally hate shoujo!

OP 1

OP 2

Thanks for reading!

      Hmm, I think Letter Bee was probably my favorite show that started this season. P&SG were good too. I also really enjoyed Milky Holmes and not being a bandwagon jumper. I still maintain that episodes 3 and 4 were some of the most brilliant comedy of the year.

      Fortune Arterial…it was standard eroge adaptation with nothing new. I wouldn’t call it bad per se and I’m not sure I would use the word “enjoy” but there were times when it was just a mindless way to pass the time. yosuga started out interesting but then turned to softcore porn.

      For me the worst show was definitely Iron Man. I don’t think I got through 3 episodes of that. Of the other shows that I dropped Togainu no Chi was pretty boring, same with Psychic Detective yakumo, the episodic stories were boring but I hear the main plot was interesting. Index’s first arc was really painful, the 2nd one is…so-so. Bakuman is hard to sit through at times. Oreimo is probably the worst show I finished, it’s basically just good for fap fodder.

      The best show of the year for me would be Tatami Galaxy. yuasa plays me like a fiddle.
      The worst show that I actually finished would be Ookami Kakushi, I mean wtf man.

      I ended up finishing Panty and Stocking after dropping it initially; I enjoyed the visuals and creativity, but still rarely found it funny. The ending episodes were pretty awesome though.

      Bakuman’s characters, man, the cast isn’t bad except for Mashiro and Azuki. They just suck all the enjoyment out of the show for me. I mean, Mashiro is OK when he’s on his own (and fun when he’s with Takagi, but that probably goes without saying since he makes everything awesome), but he’s so fucking insufferable in any situation with Azuki. Awful.

      I loved Kuragehime and Arakawa II (for the most part, defo not the ending tho) and really enjoyed Zakuro too (the sleeper hit of the season). Yakumo got better after the first third. Overall, the strongest season overall for me last year.

      @Taka slightly disturbed that you consider Oreimo fap fodder… then again i’m sure a lot of other people do too…

      @Shinmaru even though PSG was rather meh to me I’d still watch the S2 if or when it comes out. For some reason I do like listening to you complain about Bakuman though XD

      @digital boy Hyakka Ryouran probably wouldn’t have been as enjoyable for me if i watched it one episode at a time. i really enjoyed the art as well. sometimes even i like trashy fanservice shows XD

      @Hana I think fall was the strongest season as well. there was a lot of enjoyable series and even some really enjoyable ones. hardly any out right hate ones as long as you don’t count yosuga
