Top noitaminA Anime

noitaminA is a programing block created in 2005 starting with Honey and Clover. The goal was to bring in the female anime viewers. Over the years I personally think that goal has changed into bringing just great quality shows to the viewer no matter what gender they are aimed at. It is clear that the female aim is still present but it is also very clear that it is not as over bearing as it was in previous years.

I made it a goal sometime ago to watch everything that has aired in this slot. For the most part these anime have always been awesome to watch and I can honestly say I've only really disliked sitting through one of these shows. Here's my top list to date.

#1

Jyu Oh Sei 10/10

This was my first brush with noitaminA anime. Honestly I didn't even know much about noitaminA at the time of watching this. I was mostly like "Ohhh hey a survival anime! I like those!" and dove right in. Jyu Oh Sei is far from most people's favourite noitaminA show, hell it's far from most people's top 10 anime of all time! Which it just happens to place 10th on that list of mine. I was just captivated by the show so much. I enjoyed all the characters, loved the look, and the story has a cute twist to it by the end of everything.

Third and Thor are probably my favourite characters of the series. I can't honestly choose who I like more much to the sadness of my girlfriends because for the most part they are on team Third. This prison planet, Chimera, that these men have come to live on is quite harsh and a great environment for some action. The strange politics of the planet play a very interesting roll in this series as well. The goal of becoming the Beast King is at the top of everyones mind and most will do anything to achieve the glorious title.

#2

House of Five Leaves 10/10

This quiet samurai show is just amazing. House of Five Leaves focuses on many things but the budding relationship between 2 men was quite something. And no not in that totally gay kind of way! Although that could have been fun too 😛

I view Yaichi as a great tragic character yet having Akitsu Masanosuke around helps him in ways I'm sure he didn't even know he needed help with. Both men go through this actually. It's just great!

I know this show is not for everyone. The pacing is terrible at times and honestly the story is rather jumbled. But none the less it found it's way into my heart and I'll forever love it to bits.

 

#3

Honey + Clover 9/10

A lovely slice of school life romance. But yes while this is filled with everything I generally hate, I love Honey and Clover! Why? Because it's not a so typical romance story and it's NOT a so typical school environment.

I have no interest in art or their school for the most part but these characters drew me in because of their passion. I respect passion and trying to find your place in the world and it was all done wonderfully. Along with finding their place in the world we of course get the drama and romance thrown in there too. Seriously love triangles EVERYWHERE! It was great honestly because even if I knew who would end up with who in the end (even though to most it wasn't obvious) there was enjoyment of watching each character get to where they will end up. Happy ending or sad depends on who you were rooting for I suppose. Weirdest OP ever!

#4

Kuragehime 9/10

Otaku come in all forms! The word does not mean "Anime Fan" as most have come to believe in the west. It really means anyone that has a super interest in something. So yes, there are anime otaku, but there are every other hobby otaku out there as well. Kuragehime showcases 5 different otaku and hilariously enough none of them are anime fans! Well I guess the yaoi manga writer counts as an "anime" fan but we never see her so I dunno if that should count.

Every single character in this show was perfect. Even the ones we are clearly suppose to hate. I loved every single one of them and wanted them all to succeed in whatever they were driving towards. Even if that goal was just rent!

 

#5

Nodame Cantabile 9/10

I avoided this show for the longest time. I was afraid that it was going to be too dependent on music and that I'd end up hating it. Thankfully while Nodame Cantabile is completely filled with music and while it does play a very important part in the show, I fell in love with pretty much every single character they threw at me.

Nodame is a quirky girl that finds her way into the heart of a tough hard ass. Not the best of matches but well they do say opposites attract right?! For some reason Nodame and her love Chiaki really reminds me of my own relationship so this is pretty much why it's in the #5 spot. When anime characters can speak to me like that, I LIKE!

 

#6

Bunny Drop 9/10

I didn't think I would enjoy this as much as I did but Bunny Drop melted my cold heart. It was a slow slice of life show about a single man who takes in a very young child. He has no idea how to take care of a kid but he does so anyway. We get to follow their journey learning about one another and how to cope with their new situation.

This falls into my adult slice of life category. Sure it focused on the girl a lot but it also focused on the adult a lot too. A very nice balance if I do say so myself. I think they could do with more episodes and all but I'm glad they ended it where they did since apparently things change a lot manga wise.

 

#7

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 9/10

Everyone remembers this anime because once they figured out THAT, they were hooked. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 does a good job in having children in a traumatic situation and doesn't make them too annoying throughout the peril of an earthquake. Sure these ones cried A LOT but honestly if you were diving into this show not expecting that... Well I dunno what to say.

I love just how human this show is. No matter our differences most people when tragedy strikes everyone will end up coming together for the survival of all. This isn't always the case but this show did well in putting some faith in humanity for me at the very least.

 

#8

Hakaba Kitaro 9/10

Spooky comedy is spooky! Hakaba Kitaro takes an old classic and gives it a little reboot. It probably has one of my most beloved OP's ever. Denki Groove is one amazing music group and I'll gush about them more down this list.

Youkai stories are a soft spot of mine because every single one of them is just delightfully strange. Who couldn't love an eyeball father? A ratlike man? Or someone who always walks around with a mask on? I love all these things and a fun filled comedy horror like this does great for a quick bite.

 

 

 

#9

Antique Bakery 9/10

Old men and a bakery? Sign me up! Antique Bakery to me felt like pure fanservice aimed directly at me. I love food, I love old men, I love the restaurant business, oh yeah I tend to like the odd relationship too!

There is an interesting dramatic past to all those that are employed at this bakery and as the anime goes on we learn more and more. I kinda wish by the end of the show there was a better understanding for ALL the characters but I'll let that slide this time since the show was darn entertaining to me.

I WANT TO EAT ALL THE CAKES!!!

#10

No. 6 8/10

I was smitten with No. 6 from start to finish. I didn't honestly know what to expect from it and that's what I loved the most about it. The setting is what drew me in the most. I love futuristic world that have a slum side to them.

If the setting doesn't pull you in I'm sure the characters would. I found all of them to be entertaining in their own strange ways. How each of them choose to survive in this world is quite interesting and how they choose to fight to better themselves is even more interesting.

Sion and Nezumi were a perfect match in more than one way. 😉

 

 

#11

Un-Go 8/10

When mystery and the supernatural come together and make it work you get Un-Go! Quirky characters have always been a thing for me and this show delivers greatly in that aspect. I also really liked that there wasn't one mystery to sink my teeth into throughout the show. We got lots instead and that is what kept me watching week after week. I'd look forward to more if that ever came to be.

 

 

#12

Mononoke 8/10

As a show that was part of another show, Ayakashi below, this was the last story in that show and since it was so good it just had to be made into its very own anime! Which I'm totally behind 100%. Mononoke is what happens when you do a horror right. It has a classy vibe to it that you can't turn your head away from even if you are feeling squirmish to what you are seeing. The artistic look of the show helps greatly with that. They layer texture over texture to pull you in like a work of art.

Also the Medicine Seller is one of the best characters ever!

 

#13

Ayakashi 8/10

Like I stated above Ayakashi - Japanese Classic Horror is a collection of horror shorts. Mononoke being one of them of course but they had 2 other stories as well. Yotsuya Kaidan being the first one about betrayal, murder and ghostly revenge! It's probably my favourite aside from the last one, but since Bakeneko has a full series for me to enjoy I don't like to talk about it too much when speaking of this show. It just feels not fair to the other 2 stories!

The middle story being Tenshu Monogatari was a simple love story with a horror twist of course. I found it to be the weakest of the bunch but still very good. I think it would stand up to a re-watch whenever I decide to do so.

 

#14

Moyashimon 8/10

I'll get this out of the way first. YAY!!! A SEASON 2 AIRING THIS SUMMER!!! This anime is the only one in the noitaminA block to have had a live action series air for it in the noitaminA block. I haven't watched it myself but I know plenty who have and loved it! Maybe I'll dive into it one day when I get on a real life tv series kick again (it rarely happens since I love anime way more). Moyashimon I'll always remember because of those adorable micro-organisms that the main character could see.

WE'LL BREW YOU! WE'LL BREW YOU!

 

#15

Eden of the East 8/10

Oh what can I say about Eden of the East. It was a great mystery that's for sure! The characters were all so great too! Especially Akira Takizawa. Everyone will remember his entry to the anime scene even if they didn't enjoy the show. How could anyone forget a buck naked boy running around America with only an amazing cell phone (that I totally want) and a gun?! My only issue with the boy is his lack of memory. I'm not too fond of characters with memory loss in general so I won't hold it too much against him.

Johnny!!!

 

#16

Paradise Kiss 8/10

There's only one thing that really blew me away about Paradise Kiss. It wasn't the story or the characters or that it was about fashion. Nope. None of that really interested me hilariously enough. Well the characters were pretty great I'll admit. But I saw something that I honestly had never really seen before in anime. I saw people having sex. And it wasn't like in your face gross sex either. It was sweet and tender sex. The scenes weren't very long either which was a good thing.

It's also a great indirect sequel to Gokinjo Monogatari!

 

 

 

#17

Hataraki Man 8/10

This show was pretty much just about a woman working non stop to get the job done. There was absolutely nothing special about it other than it was nice to see another adult slice of life show. I really like slice of life shows when they have a super adult feel to them (if you didn't already get that hint) and Hataraki Man was all about the adult feel.

It also showed just how hard it is to be a woman who wants it all. Love, work, stability. Too bad it's always so hard to achieve all these without getting stressed out to the max!

 

 

#18

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai 8/10

This started off very strong for me. So strong I had it at a 9. I know being knocked down a peg or 2 when it comes to ratings isn't a huge deal and all but Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai just felt like forced drama by the end of it all to me and I couldn't stand it. It doesn't help that I have a dislike for lots of crying children.

It was a great show to watch with a buddy of mine though. We bounced lots of ideas off of each other about where they were going and which characters were currently pissing us off. I enjoyed that the most while watching this show. It was great for discussions!

 

#19

Fractale 8/10

Fractale MURDERED this time slot!!! LOL!! That's what people were saying after this show finished airing anyway. Those silly heads. This aired around the time when noitaminA started changing their ways a little. I believe they were just testing the waters personally. 2011 was a really fun year for that in my opinion.

Anyway Fractale had a really amazing setting. It's a shame they couldn't pull all the ideas they were trying to go for together in the end but honestly it was still a really fun ride.

 

 

#20

Guilty Crown 7/10

Poor, poor Guilty Crown. Everyone hates you so. But don't you worry! I still have some room in my heart for you even though you decided to break it past the 11 episode mark. Seriously this show started off great. Half way though it kinda went in a strange direction but near the end it picked up a tad but still blew it on the finale. Music and looks are what kept me around for the whole show. I know a lot of others kept up with it for those reasons as well. It helps that I episodically watched the first "good" half and marathoned the last "poor" half.

Maybe not hating this show along with everyone else is a sign that my tastes are evolving again! XD

 

#21

Shiki 7/10

Vampire shows are always hard to get my attention. When they start off as slow as Shiki did though it's even harder. I ended up watching the first 6 episodes of this when it was airing dropped it and waited till the end to marathon it. I don't think I would have survived getting through it otherwise. The pacing in the first half of the show was painful for me. I was however rewarded when it came to the second half.

The style in which this show was done is worth mentioning. It has a very unique look and those hairdo's will make you take a double take at all the characters. Very fun.

 

#22

Tatami Galaxy 7/10

Now this was another adult slice of life but Tatami Galaxy did nothing for me in the end. It went all out into lots of talking and lots of strange looks. The strange look was appreciated though. Generally lots of talkie talkie doesn't bother me since I like political shows and all but I just couldn't relate to what the characters were trying to get across half the time.

 

 

 

 

#23

Toshokan Sensou 7/10

I like strange settings and all and one that has a military air to it is generally really appealing to me. Sadly Toshokan Sensou is honestly just a mess.

Ok so there is this war on books and knowledge apparently in this world. And in order to protect people's freedom to have access to knowledge an army was built to protect books and information... Kinda screams Fahrenheit 451 to you ehh? "Slight" differences sure but I can't help but to make the comparison.

I think if they stuck with this plot the show could have been great but they decided to work on some character romances instead that just felt super out of place to me. I dunno maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind when I watched this or something...

#24

C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control 7/10

Man this show... LOL... C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control was certainly different from the norm. I watched it with a buddy and it's probably the only way either of us could make sense of it all since we could bounce ideas off of one another. We also enjoyed fawning over Mashu and Q.

ADORABLE GIRLS ARE ADORABLE!

Something something economics... Blaa, blaa, blaa.

 

 

 

#25

Genji Monogatari Sennenki 6/10

Genji Monogatari Sennenki  is a famous romance story that has been remade countless times. I personally don't care too much for the story but I appreciate the setting very much. I love historical settings of Japan and China when it comes to story tellings so as far as that goes I was happy with this show. Just wish I cared about the romance.

At least it looked gorgeous!

 

 

 

#26

Black Rock Shooter 6/10

I don't know what to say about Black Rock Shooter honestly... It looked pretty... The fights were great... But anything else it had to offer just wasn't there for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

#27

Kuuchuu Buranko 5/10

Now... I actually really appreciate this show for what it was doing. Taking a look at the strange behaviours of humans is always interesting. But sadly Kuuchuu Buranko's quirky way of doing this was too much for me to handle. I loved the look of the show and all but I really couldn't handle that nurse with her giant needle. I'm VERY much afraid of needles so every time she'd appear I'd instantly feel sick and a wave of anxiety would consume me.

Denki Groove makes another appearance in this show. Which is by far my favourite part of the show. The OP and ED are among my top favourites when it comes to openings and endings honestly. It might just be my bias towards Denki Groove being totally awesome though!

 

#28

Wandering Son 4/10

Most people will dismiss this list right here and now if they haven't already! HAHA! I feel like I was the only person not to care about these gender confused children. And don't get me wrong here. I love figuring out your sexuality stories but when it revolves around children in the slowest pace possible like Wandering Son did, it just wasn't for me.

I will give it one credit though. I loved the way it looked. I'm a huge fan of artsy water colour pieces so this anime did wonders in that aspect.

 

 

Thermae Romae 9/10

BONUS!!!

It just feels wrong to me to compare a 3 episode TV special to whole series. Sure a lot of those series only have 11 episodes but I still feel it's just not fair. So Thermae Romae is in a category all of its own! I love stories about men doing manly awesome things. Especially when they are a part of history. This TV special doesn't disappoint and it's full of completely hilarious situations. Bathing has never been so much fun! Not even in Bathtime with Hinako & Hiyoko! Although I might be biased here since I LOVE OLD MEN!

Sakamichi no Apollon

Tsuritama

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Currently Airing:

Sakamichi no Apollon & Tsuritama currently have the same rating after 4 episodes being 8/10. I hope that Tsuritama might be able to leap up to a 9 and take over the #14 spot if it ends up getting a 9 I think it'll place in the #10 spot. I hope that Apollon won't drop down to a 7 and take over the #17 spot. Time will tell~ Maybe it'll jump up to a 9! I do like music and fish! noitaminA has finally proven to me after all these years that they don't screw around when it comes to music and anime.

Robotics;Notes

Psycho-pass

Natsuyuki Rendezvous

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Upcoming:

Robotics;Notes FALL - This one is the third in line for a Science Adventure series of games following Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate. I honestly have no faith in this one and think it will be garbage just like the first one was in this series.

Psycho-pass FALL - Dunno much about this one yet but I have hopes that this will kick ass based on the tease trailer I saw.

Natsuyuki Rendezvous SUMMER - Nice to see another josei making an appearance. I just hope it won't be as lame as the synopsis makes it out to be. Flowers and ghosts oh my! At least it's surely going to be pretty looking.

So yup! That was fun. 😛 I'll always look forward to all noitaminA shows no matter what they throw at me!

Tuesday Tally My Spring

Diving back into anime for the Spring season was an obvious choice for me since Spring and Fall always hold the most potential for anime awesomeness. Along with watching every single anime airing, I started my Cooking With Oishii Anime series. I think it's going pretty well so far and I hope people are as entertained by it as I am. I love cooking and I'm rather glad I got back into it this way. Joining 2 passions is always a good thing.

PEW PEW POWAH!

Sai Mecha has started and I plan on posting all my votes on here since I love ma mecha. I enjoy this mecha battle royal very much because of all the hilarity that comes out of all mecha fans that take part! I gotta thank ExecutiveOtaku once again because this was the best idea ever. He also sent me a bunch of DINOSAURS! Which are totally awesome and arrived today. I'm going to do something fun bloggy wise with them soon.

There's been quite a lot of drama over at the Aniblog Tourney and honestly it's rather gross. I had a lot of fun the first time around but this time it's just pathetic. I had a really cute and hilarious post scheduled for my next round in it (cause ya I somehow made it to the 2nd round much to a lot of people's dismay I'm sure...) But I'm not even going to bother posting it now. If I'm just going to get called a "beggar" (because NO ONE ELSE was telling people to vote for them NOPE!) and get called a terrible person because I can't stand certain popular anime. Ohhh whatever internet! LOL It's not like I blog for YOU! I blog for ME. And I'll keep blogging and doing what I please even among the haters. ^___^ Gotta thank Digiboy for cheering me up over this silliness! COME ON EVERY PONY SMILE SMILE SMILE! FILL MY HEART UP WITH SUNSHINE SUNSHINE!

Yarrrr!

Anyway onto anime! The Toriko x One Piece Crossover 2 aired and it was awesome! I'm fully caught up on Toriko since my last Tuesday Tally post and I gotta say it's just gotten better and better. I love Toriko's relationship with Komatsu! It has been an amazing ride. Komatsu I really didn't like at first but he's grown on me a great deal and he's a great passionate character. I can't wait to see what more greatness Toriko has planned for us.

King Poyo!

WINTER 2012

I finally got around to finishing off almost all the Winter 2012 anime. I put Rinne no Lagrange on hold for now since I think watching it right before the other half of it airs during this summer would be best. I might even re-watch the first season of Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere since it's S2 is also airing during the summer. I re-started Mouretsu Pirates and I still don't like it which just pisses me off at this point. I'm still going strong on Poyopoyo of course. Gotta love that round cat! I started The Knight in the Area which is a soccer anime. I'm not to fond of it honestly and am instead hilariously enough enjoying springs soccer anime Ginga e Kickoff slightly more.

Perfect reaction when 2 hot ladies are in front of you.

2nd and 3rd best characters in this show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Another - *snorts*
  • Ano Natsu de Matteru - I actually really enjoyed this one. Too bad it took 6 episodes for me to really get into it. I feel there was a little lost potential in the beginning but I was rewarded with a pretty awesome ending. I love aliens~
  • Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai - Reminded me a lot of Kodomo no Jikan... Might be because I watched that too recently.
  • Baby, Please Kill Me - Holy crap this show was SO annoying. I have no idea how I marathoned this. If I never hear the words "Kill me Baby" ever again I'll be content. That normal school girl was the most annoying girl ever.
  • Black Rock Shooter - Meh.
  • High School DxD - I now know what the DxD stands for... -_-
  • Inu x Boku SS - The character that turned into a scroll was awesome. I really enjoyed this one even if it felt like a typical show very clearly aimed at girls.
  • Nisemonogatari - Like the first series it was pretty. That's as far as I go interest wise. This one had that oh so famous toothbrush scene that had everyone talking about it. I just gotta say it was gross but probably not for the same reasons as everyone else. I hate anything that has to do with teeth so it just made me feel awkward and queasy while trying to watch it.
  • Senki Zesshou Symphogear - Oh wow what can I say about this. It wasn't that great but it wasn't too terrible either. It felt like something I just couldn't pull my attention away from even if it was a huge mash up of so many different anime. They should have just focused on mimicking one or 2 and made it great instead of who knows how many and just making a hilarious fool of its self.

One day I'll find a Potemayo of my own~

I HATE this guy! >.<

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SERIES

  • Aquarion - I watched the first Aquarion series because I wanted to start Evol as soon as possible because everyone has been freaking out over it the entire time it has been airing. And honestly I can see why. It takes everything from the first series and makes it COMPLETELY better. LET ME FILL YOUR HOLE!
  • Potemayo - CUTE!
  • Kodomo no Jikan ALL - If you ignore all the gross pervy stuff there's actually a pretty darn good show lurking underneath.
  • Don Dracula - Old silly short series about vampire daddy and his vampire daughter. Great for some laughs especially if you enjoy Tezuka's silly humour.
  • Negima ALL - First series was alright. I found that I really enjoyed the music and sound effects a lot which is kind of hilarious to me. The second series took all those awesome noises away and just left me with the characters. It was an alright watch too honestly save for the ferret thing. That little guy was made to be way more obnoxious the second time around. The ova's were silly fun and the movie was actually pretty awesome and gave the series an alright closure in my opinion.
  • Shining Tears X Wind - Only watched this because it's like the unofficial prequel to the currently airing Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan. It wasn't a bad watch but it felt like any other typical fantasy show.
  • Hajime no Ippo: New Challenger - NEED MORE.
  • School Rumble 2 - More of the same hilarity that S1 brought. I somehow feel like there should be more!
  • Ace wo Nerae - I'm half way through this writing this post and will probably be finished it later today. I watched the movie first and I gotta say it's delivering pretty much the same way. Gotta love that really old shoujo! It just has this perfect class that newer shoujo just can't get right.

Penguin ADORABLENESS!

EVERYBODY DANCE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MOVIES & OVA's

  • Minori Scramble - Do you like PENGUINS?! Watch this adorable cute ova even if you don't!
  • Eiji - Yet another fun and short ova about boxing. Good for a quick watch.
  • Cipher - HOLY SHIT BALLS! I have no freaking clue wtf this strange ass ova was about and I don't think I could try and explain it. You just gotta see it for yourself if you love to torture yourself watching old shitty anime.
  • Un-Go - This was awesome because it felt like I was still watching the series. A delightful 2 parter somewhere in the middle of it all. Very fun and you need to check it out if you haven't already and love this show.
  • Lupin Special 14 - Yet another retelling of the beginning of it all. Very fun in the typical Lupin fashion.

nomnomnom goes GON!

SPRING 2012

I already wrote a bunch of first impressions posts HERE & HERE & HERE. I half wrote a fourth with my favourites but never published it so I'll just spew a little right now about these awesome shows.

  • Gon - DINOSAUR ASS KICKING... Yeah more on this very soon.
  • Space Brothers - SPACE ASS KICKING... Again more on this very soon... Hopefully!
  • Folktales from Japan - This show is full of amazing one off stories. We get 3 random tales each episode. This anime is lovely and everyone should really give it a chance.
  • Shirokuma Café - HOLY SHIT! ANIMALS KICK ASS... Totally more on this soon! PANDA SERVICE! Oh yeah! My good friend is totally writing something awesome for each episode which I totally encouraged! XD

Review of 2011 Anime Part 4 ~Fall~

More kiddy shounen shows aired this fall that I didn't watch. Another season of Digimon Xros Wars, Battle Spirits, and Cross Fight B-Daman. I watched the Tamayura OVA when it came out last year and was bored to tears. Decided that it was best to start actually not watching shows I won't like and put Tamayura: Hitotose on my won't watch list. Sengoku Paradise: Kiwami I would have watched if I could find subs of it. Something tells me they won't show up for a long time if ever. I know it's about pretty boys and all but the episodes are 3 minutes long!

Oh pretty bishies!

A lot of falls (still airing) shows might end up with a rating change (the 7-8 ones) but for now this is how they stand. I'm excited to see how much better Gundam Age can get for me. It's been quite fun so far. Bakuman 2 is going strong so far and I'm very happy that we can all look forward to a Bakuman 3 next fall! Ben-To, Persona 4, and Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere were a lot of fun to watch. I'm happy with how they went from me wondering if they would be good to being AMAZING. Persona 4 is continuing on into winter so there's more to look forward to of that.

Picture by mueojisan Top = Zero Bottom = StayNight

Best Show of fall should be Last Exile: Fam but since it's still airing I'm going to award this honour to Fate/Zero. As said before I haven't played any of the games but I did watch Fate/stay night and enjoyed it a lot. So much that I even re-watched it before Zero aired so the bf could experience it. I can't wait for S2! What a mean cliffhanger to leave us with.

Worst Show of fall is of course Mashiro-Iro Symphony. Eroge. Harem. Yeah...

That "cat" thing was alright...

  24. Maken-ki! 4/10
  25. C³ 3/10
  26. Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!! 2/10
  27. Mashiro-Iro Symphony: The Color of Lovers 1/10

^_________^

Surprise enjoyment: Guilty Crown simply because everyone else in the whole wide world likes to hate on it. How I'm not a hater with the haters is amazing honestly but I like the damn show! Kimi to Boku could have gone either way for me honestly. Something drew me into it though and it may or may not have to do with cats~ Can't wait for more come spring. Chihayafuru is super girly for me but this 'Karuta' game they play keeps me interested. I'm not fond of her or the game but I do like watching them play it.

Surprise fail: Honestly there were no anime that I found bad that I thought weren't going to be already. That just further proves how awesome the fall season of 2011 has been!

Honorable mentions: High Score & Chibi Devi! I'm actually blogging! Un-Go was everything that Shinrei Tantei Yakumo wanted to be. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai I wanted to like very much but deep down I knew it wouldn't be for me. It just drove me crazy with the 3 main characters being very unlikable as well. Phi Brain is the funnest shounen to sit back and enjoy... As long as you like puzzles... It helps when the very awesome tweets by @fathomlessblue are around to be read for it too!

~A Look at Anime to Come~ Fall 2011

 Using the chart from here. I give you the below edited for my preferences:

Click to actually read it

8 anime made it to the super looking forward to and will watch. Hilariously only 2 of those titles aren't season 2's and of course they both happen to be the noitaminA titles Un-Go and Guilty Crown. The only 2 season 2's I don't give a crap about are Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi (lol yaoi) and Shana III (lol tsundere). I'm currently trying to watch Shana Season 1 and it's not going so well enjoyment wise so who knows if I'll even get it watched by the time III starts. I find it rather amazing that Shana is the only show I have to watch to catch up with what's airing. Generally I got 2-3 titles to do that for when Spring and Fall roll around but only 1 is just a little shocking for me.

The one anime I'm most pumped up about is Hunter X Hunter. I love the original series and always hoped that they would make more.  I really can't wait for it! I dunno what I'll do if it disappoints me. 🙁

Gundam Age has been getting a lot of flack but I still think it'll be enjoyable. I gotta watch it anyway cause then I wouldn't be able to say I've watched ALL gundam titles! (Somehow I made it through all of SEED) Still waiting on more awesome Gundam Unicorn. An episode of that should be out pretty soon.

Ben-To has me interested for the silly factor. I don't really know what to expect but I do expect to laugh! It's probably the silliest anime I'm looking forward to this fall. I do hope that Kimi to Boku proves to be entertaining and not some kind of Ouran knock off without a reverse harem. Hori­zon on the Middle of Nowhere I hope it wow's me. I just want something that I think might be trash to actually be good.

I really hope that Last Exile and the new Fate/Zero do not disappoint me. I probably could live with Fate making me sad but if Last Exile is crap... I dunno... 🙁

I'll be interested in how Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai AKA "I got me no Friends "will do. There's a fair bit of hype about it but I'm still not so comfortable with it personally. Something about it just screams run away to me. Kinda like how Tamayura does along with those other few red highlighted titles...

SO MANLY!

I won't be blogging any of these but I might start that strange Busou Shinki Moon Angel soon because it's got 5 minutes episodes but I haven't decided on that yet. I've been doing pretty good with the Nyanpire posts so if that keeps going I plan on keeping up! I'm totally going to re-start blogging TORIKO as it's a shame I had to stop. It'll be fun catching up with it because GUTS GUTS GUTS is awesome!

<3 TROLL CAT!

 Fall anime is going to be exciting! YAY for season 2's of shows I actually like! Bakuman, Ika, and Working woooot!
