On the Fourth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Four Video Game Feels
On the Fourth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Four Video Game Feels,
Three Idol Shows,
Two Amazing Cartoons,
and The Best Boots in All of Anime
Putting down my WiiU/PS3/PSP/DS for a second to write this post! Yup I love gaming just as much as I do anime. This year we oddly had a lot of anime that touched on the gaming world which was pretty darn awesome.
Ixion Saga: Dimension Transfer
One moment you are sitting in your room playing one of your favourite games... The next moment you are falling through the sky in your chair and land on top of some dudes you were looking at while playing your video game! Yup another trapped inside a video game anime! This show gives me super happy feels. It is completely absurd at times and my day 1 post is a great example of that. I can't really tell people to go and watch this but if you are up for a laugh or a hundred you should probably check it out.
It's hard to say what I liked about this show because the first half of it was quite boring indeed. Especially those first few episodes. I really almost dropped it because of those. Something about these characters will draw you in though. Who would have thought that school kids playing a video game inside and outside of school would end up so interesting to me.
Instead of being trapped inside the game, Btooom transports the trap into real life. People get transported to an island and must fight the same ways they would if they were playing Btooom online. This is kinda most comparable to Battle Royal honestly and when it isn't focusing on the main girls issues the show is actually really enjoyable.
Sword Art Online
This show gets a lot of hate but I personally really enjoy this show. Sure it has a few dumb... ok really dumb moments here and there and the 2nd arc hasn't been as interesting as the first but it's been a really fun ride all the way through and the 2 main characters are COMPLETELY ADORABLE. So there.
Of all these I'd probably want to play Sword Art Online the most... Driland too of course!
While this is technically not taking place in a video game or based on one the feel is SUPER video gamey because you have chibi little people in a medieval setting dungeon crawling and kicking ass. I love this show even though it's kinda meh to sit through the episodes. I just like the feel it gives me!
There was a .hack movie that came out too but I don't have much to say about it. It was alright.
