366 Days of Anime School Uniforms: Day 18/366 Durarara

Day 18/366

Anri, Mikado, & Masaomi

Durarara is about many different time lines but one of them includes some school kids just living and doing their own thing.

These uniforms are classy. Very little is different from boys to girls so they match each other very well just being in the same room together. It's like a boyfriend trying to match something to his girlfriends dress for a special night out. These uniforms are just perfect like that. (I may or may not be a little obsessed with clothing matching when it comes to couples) Girls obviously wear a dark blue skirt where the boys have pants but everything else is the same. Same awesome blue jacket and white shirt. Simple but they look great! The one other difference aside from the skirt is that girls wear a flashy red bow tie where boys wear a normal dark blue tie. I find this very interesting but rather awesome too.

Overall: I sure would wear this!

chii Finally Made One!

Favourites are a great thing. What makes these shows mine is that I think about them very often when I'm thinking about anime and wish to watch them more than once. Some of them I've already watched 5+ times. To be a favourite they also must be entertaining as a whole series. So if they have season 2's or more, I should have loved them just as much as their season one. Everything on the list below applies! I've been meaning to make this kind of list for many years now and I've finally sat down and mulled through all my anime titles and picked these 100 to be my absolute favourites.

Like digitalboy I'll be updating this list regularly from now on but not once a month. I will only update when I feel an anime has stood up to my standards to break into this 100 anime list. I will keep a list at the bottom of this page which of which anime has moved in and which it has kicked out. I doubt that it'll happen very often but time will tell. Check out my Does Not Want List for a taste of my dislikes.

Review of 2010 Anime Part 1 ~Winter~

Like last year I made it a goal to watch everything that aired this year. With a few exceptions of course. Season 2 of shows I haven't seen were counted out and shows that I had seen a lot of but knew I couldn't just stomach anymore. Yup that means no Hidamari Sketch for me this winter! I still can't stand that so many seasons of it are being made... Cobra The Animation was the only other show I didn't watch that aired. It is something I've been wanting to watch for a while and this as certainly bumped it up in my want to watch list. Here we go with Winter's Aired Anime.

Winter actually was a really short season with only 13 shows that aired. Katanagatari started but it only showed one episode per month for the entire year so I don't quite count it. Only 2 shows ended up being 24 episodes (Durarara and Qwaser) and carried onto Spring where all the others were 12-13 episodes. So everything pretty much ended for new spring anime to take over the airwaves.

Winter honestly was a pretty boring season. It had some winners but half my list is on the lower half, out of 10 score wise for only 13 series... Everything was new except for Hidamari Sketch, Cobra, and Heartcatch but since I only started Heartcatch that didn't really matter to me. I was expecting new and fresh from everything but all I got was lame and crappy for the most part.

Katanagatari did something new. Something I haven't ever really seen before. Well in more ways than one honestly. Some of it was cliche like the one episode per sword capture type deal but mostly it was unique. The art and music were amazing and not to mention that you only got one episode per month! That was something special to me. I had always honestly wondered why no one had ever really done a show like that before (There might have been but I'm too lazy to research it) spanning an entire year with 12, 45 minute episodes. Generally I hate shows that have long air dates but Katanagatari was reliable for when it was going to come out. So I knew I would get my show once a month no matter what.

<3

Best Show of winter for me, aside from Katanagatari because that is the winner for overall best anime of 2010 was Durarara. I was looking forward to it from the moment I saw it announced. I watched the first episode and wrote a little something about it and then I actually ended up waiting till it was finished to watch anymore. I'm SO glad I waited too because there's nothing worse than waiting to see one of your favourite shows one episode at a time over many, many weeks. Some people love that but I just can't stand it with something I'm totally into.

Worst Show of winter for me would be Chu-Bra... Even though it's THE only series I have "successfully" blogged all the way through... ._. ...I love panties but not from the eyes of a 12 year old. I'm not even going to chew this anime out anymore. I think I've done that enough already. Urrg.

The main cast of Chu-Bra.

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

  1. Durarara 10/10
  2. Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 8/10
  3. Hanamaru Youchien 7/10
  4. Sora no Woto 7/10
  5. Heartcatch Pretty Cure (still airing) 6/10
  6. Seikon no Qwaser 5/10
  7. Dance In The Vampire Bund 4/10
  8. Ookami Kakushi 4/10
  9. Ladies Versus Butlers 4/10
  10. Omamori Himari 2/10
  11. Chu-Bra 1/10

A slice of life show I can get behind!

Ookami Kakushi's all about the oranges.








Surprise enjoyment: Hanamaru Youchien I expected to be just another one of those perverted school kid shows that everyone thinks is cute. It ended up being much, much more.

Surprise fail: Ookami Kakushi I don't even know what that was...

Honorable mentions: Cobra I honestly can't wait to sink my teeth into. I put off watching the new one because I haven't seen the old. This is something I shall be completing in the year to come for sure. Sora no Woto I actually expected to hate a lot more than I ended up. It was total win though. Well not total, it could have been a little less slice of war life like and a little more awesome even though what was there in general was pretty darn awesome. I'm still not sure of my overall thoughts of the show. Heartcatch has brought Pretty Cure back up to my magical girl standards. It was shattered with Fresh last year so I was expecting the worst. Thankfully I got the best. Seikon no Qwaser I think digiboy said it best here "purposefully awesomely bad".

Winter: Durarara. It's first ED is pretty darn amazing as well.

Spring: Sarai-ya Goyou AKA House of Five Leaves. I love everything that has to do with this OP. So wonderful.

Summer: Sengoku Basara Ni. Super catchy. Super hyper! Just like the show.

Fall: Kuragehime AKA Princess Jellyfish. Everything about this is just awesome. Imagery especially. The ED is super touching as well. Gives me a pretty calm feeling every time I watch and listen to it.

Overall: Senkou no Night Raid. I've already said here that it was probably my favourite of 2010 and since the end of the year is here, I know for sure. This year in general was pretty special for a lot of great OP's and ED's.

Special mention! Omae Umasou da na! So simple and short for both the OP and ED!
