Review of 2011 Anime Part 1 ~Winter~

This winter we got 20 shows. Quite a bit more from last years 12 or so. All shows that aired were watched. There are a few ova's that I didn't pick up but that's not an issue since they are related to series I haven't seen yet. Everyone should know by now that I make it a yearly goal to watch all anime that airs in the year. I've been doing that for the last 3 years. I find it pretty fun and it makes these posts awesome. Anyway onward with winter aired anime!

Winter is either really fun or kind of meh. Unlike the last 2 years this year I didn't get a 10/10 anime that aired which I found a little weird because pretty much every season I get one of those... "Everyone's"  top anime of the year/decade came out. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica was fun but I just couldn't get into it as much as everyone else. I do however love Kyubey very very much. I'd make a contract!  /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

Suite Pretty Cure has jumped to the top of the pretty cure franchise for me. It's quite awesome and exceeded my high expectations that Heartcatch created. I only hope that the upcoming Smile can match the awesomeness that has become Pretty Cure! <3 Siren!

The King of baka's!

Best Show of winter is Level E. It did wonderful things in a hilarious way. I laughed a lot. I only wish that it could have been longer. It needed just a little extra bit of something to be amazing. All the characters were really great. The show almost seemed like it was a parody of sorts for Men in Black since it was about aliens on earth but no one else knows about them.

Worst Show of winter is without a doubt is the oh so terrible Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne... So bad that most people watched this show with sccsav while drinking because that was the only possible way to get through this show. Unless you are me of course! Everything about this show is offensive...

...just...no...

Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of winter 2011:

  1. Level E 8/10
  2. Suite Pretty Cure 8/10
  3. Wolverine 8/10
  4. Fractale 8/10
  5. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica 7/10
  6. Beelzebub (still airing) 7/10
  7. Gosick 7/10
  8. Kore wa Zombie desu ka? 7/10
  9. Supernatural The Animation 7/10
  10. Kimi ni Todoke 7/10
  11. Dream Eater Merry 6/10
  12. Freezing 6/10
  13. Mitsudomoe 5/10
  14. Cardfight!! Vanguard (still airing) 5/10
  15. Infinite Stratos 5/10
  16. Rio: Rainbow Gate 5/10
  17. Wandering Son 4/10
  18. Dragon Crisis 3/10
  19. Starry Sky 2/10
  20. Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne 1/10

...

Surprise enjoyment: Supernatural The Animation was quite enjoyable. It probably helps a lot that I haven't seen the American show it originally is. I really like that ED. Beelzebub started off pretty weak but after a while I sank in and started to really like the characters.

Surprise fail: Gosick I honestly expected much more from. Sure it has a pass rating from me but I really just wanted to be wow'd by it and that never happened.

Honorable mentions: Rio: Rainbow Gate! Sharks, Gambling, and boobs! Fractale is a show everyone hated on but I still got a lot of enjoyment out of it regardless. Wolverine was super fun and Landon agrees! Wandering Son is my most hated noitaminA show. The only one I hate actually. Which is hilarious because everyone loves it.

  2. Onii-chan…. sigh! That goes under my special tag of “Oh Japan”. I’ve never been much of a fan of incest (or pseudo-incest) anime, but by this point I had had more than enough of the genre. The only reason I watched the first 3 episodes was to see how epically bad it was. It may go down as a almost legendary piece of crap.

    I’m a little sad to see you didn’t enjoy Gosick and Madoka as much as I did. But I can’t complain to someone who gave it a fair shot, it’s not like you said any of it was bad. Then again, Madoka isn’t so much a show you enjoy, so much as you “weather” it. It’s a tough, mostly joyless ride.

    This list just reminds me of how much anime I still need to get around to watching. I commend you on your dedication, even your dedication towards finishing the crap.

    see i enjoy incest shows XD but i knew right from the start that onii-chan was going to be crap. it looked terrible and came right after the other sibling show “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute” …yeah… bad vibes.

    yeah both of those shows were “good” but i just needed something more i guess.
