365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 158/365 Juno

Day 158/365

Juno

From the anime Elementhunters, Juno is an android who serves as the assistant of Professor Aimee Carr. Inadvertently she has to do with the element dematerialization issue that earth is having at the moment.

Why I like her: She's an adorable little android that shows quite a lot of emotions. Anime loves doing this with their androids but it never tires for me. I really enjoyed her part of the story and the way things were handled with her character. Almost made me shed a tear.... But not really. 😛

Why I hate her: No hate here ^_^

Overall: This show is far from the best out there but it is in a weird way worth watching. It's clearly aimed at children who wish to learn more about science but it's highly enjoyable to an older audience as well. Juno will win your heart over.

Review of 2009 Anime Part 2 ~Summer~

Summer had the shortest list I'd seen for current airing anime in quite some time. It had what most people would consider the best anime of 2009 come out, (Bakemonogatari) which is the only anime I didn't watch from summer. It's not that I don't want to watch it. It just frustrates me that they are still needing 2 episodes to be released before it is complete. I'm sure I could watch the other episodes and be happy with that but I want to experience it in the full.

Summer had all original shows. All but two anyway, Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Spice and Wolf II were the only sequels. Technically I suppose you could put Umineko no Naku Koro ni into that category but Umineko can very easily be watched on it's own without having watched any Higurashi imo.

Elementhunters started up and is still airing right now. It's said to be 39 episodes so it should be finished soon enough. I have mixed feelings about this show. It's interesting in a weird way but I can't help finding it terribly boring at the same time. It also feels like they are trying to teach kids about science because the ed song is all about the periodic table and tries to make people memorize the elements.

Best show for summer for me,was Canaan. It was fast, full of action, and had awesome characters. It's rare for an anime to have such a big cast and me not hate any of them. Very rare. Sure the plot was a little fuzzy at times and it did have a few slow moments but overall it was great! The action was fun and exciting to me. The animation was nice as well. It wasn't anything special but it didn't burn the eyes either. I can see how people would be disappointed with this show but for me it was a great action romp.

Cummings and Liang Qi 2 of my favourite crazy characters.

Worst show for summer for me, was Aoi Hana. Talk about a snore fest. Sure there was one scene in there that was hot smooching action but that was it. As far as I can remember anyway. I was too busy trying to stay awake through the show let alone pay attention to it. I mean i knew what i was getting into with it as it's a yuri anime at an all girls school. So i was expecting Maria sama with different characters. I can't believe this show actually made Maria sama look good... Yes while both had whiny, bitchy characters. Aoi Hana turned up the drama and waterworks past the dial limit. It was very annoying to watch a girl crying every episode about whatever crisis was occurring at that very moment when it was really nothing terrible to begin with. For an anime so short it seemed like each episode was over an hour long. Wishing for the anime to end while you are on episode 2 is never a good sign. At least the animation was pretty...

Smoochy smooch

Here’s my big list of Best to Worst shows of summer 2009:

  1. Canaan 9/10
  2. Kuruneko (still airing) 10/10
  3. Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 9/10
  4. Umineko no Naku Koro ni 9/10
  5. Kanamemo 8/10
  6. Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-Chan!! 4/10
  7. Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei 6/10
  8. Weiss Survive 6/10
  9. Elementhunters (still airing) 5/10
  10. Princess Lover! 5/10
  11. Taishou Yakyuu Musume 5/10
  12. Spice and Wolf II 4/10
  13. Umi Monogatari ~Anata ga Ite Kureta Koto~ 4/10
  14. Sora no Manimani 3/10
  15. GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class 3/10
  16. Needless 3/10
  17. Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou 2/10
  18. Aoi Hana 1/10

Surprise enjoyment: Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-Chan!! lol go read my review here. Aside from that Kanamemo was highly enjoyed by me for being a moe blob anime. ONI!

Surprise fail: Needless... I went in expecting an updated version of scryed and got... LESS... I definitely didn't NEED to watch this show. So much disappointment.

Guilty pleasure: Kuruneko. It's about a lady and her cats, very simple. The episodes are 2 minutes long and make me laugh SO MUCH. One episodes I pretty much almost peed my pants laughing I had to pause the episode and wait till I calmed down before I could continue. Cat humor gets me everytime.

Sexy Lady Bern

Honorable mentions: Umineko no Naku Koro ni a faithful follower of an awesome horror/mystery. Still a very good anime but didn't live up to my expectations from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and I suppose nothing ever will. Love Lady Bern! Princess Lover! I actually liked this show at first but once they started with that "action" stuff (ep 8?) it started to try being something it wasn't and failed miserably. That actually made me pretty sad cause I was actually liking a harem anime then they went and ruined it >.<
