On the Ninth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,

Eight Food Shots,
Seven Pretty Cure Titles,
Six Underrated Shows,
(Twenty)Five Years of Final Fantasy,
Four Video Game Feels,
Three Idol Shows,
Two Amazing Cartoons,
and The Best Boots in All of Anime


I generally don't like getting my hopes up for shows actually being good but I stupidly did so for the following... Ordered by how much my hopes were crushed.

Mouretsu Pirates

I still say cut the right half off and we would have had a good show

I wanted ass kicking lady Pirates yarring around SPACE... I fucking got school girls in SPACE pretend playing pirates...

Arcana Famiglia

More of this would have been nice

Yet another one of those stupid shoujo reverse harem kickass shows that fucking failed miserably despite having a great idea going on.

Lupin III Fujiko Blaa Blaa


Talk about sucking the fun lightheartedness out of Lupin. Not a fan of "serious" Lupin at all.


This shot really makes me sad 🙁

I had no real idea what to expect going into this. It made me feel really awkward at times when watching it which is awesome but in the end things just really went no where. Very disappointing. Zombie's have never been so cute before.

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia

Urg I dunno what I was expecting with this one... Ghosts are pretty cool generally. But the end did kinda rock. So I guess sitting through some boring paid off.

Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate

For an anime about a food club this show didn't focus nearly enough on delicious treats as it should have!

Kill Me Baby

This show should have been funny as hell but instead I got annoying as fuck.


Ok now we get into the shows that I actually enjoyed enough but just wish they were slightly better. Zetman had it all going on... It just needed more episodes to execute it properly I think.

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse

Mixed bag of feelings with this one honestly. I fucking love it to bits and really have it rated highly. But in the end it just fell flat and left me wanting more of the awesomeness it was instead of what awesomeness it turned out to be. These aliens are fucking awesome though! Mecha too!!

    I ran into a lot of conflicts this year and ended up dropping a lot of stuff I would normally watch. Though I started all of them (and some I watched quite a bit of). The only two on this list I finished were Zetman and Kill Me Baby.

    I didn’t think anyone besides me thought Zetman was a decent show.

    Kill Me Baby had strange humor that took a lot of getting used to. And it criminally underused the ninja girl. I mean that was really the reason I was watching.

    That being said I haven’t been really able to get into any comedy anime lately cept Gintama. By all rights I should have loved Danshi no Kokousei Nichijou since it had the director of my two all-time favorite comedies: Gintama and School Rumble, but the jokes rarely hit with me. It was amusing but I wasn’t dying of laughter. Guess I set my expectations too high.

    I fucking loved Zetman and there will be another shout out to it in tomorrow’s 12day post!

    i was so disappointed by kill me baby. it’s everything i should have liked but that main chick. fuck her. everyone else was pretty awesome. including ninja girl.

    comedy shows are really hard to get me to enjoy them honestly. that’s why i made a top list of them cause it’s so rare! Nothing wrong with having high expectations. I have them myself so yeah!!
