Review of 2012 Anime Part 4 ~Fall~

Fall is just finishing up at this point. Battle Spirits and a few other kiddy shows weren't watched. I didn't touch the latest season of To Love-Ru due to not having seen any of the rest. I decided NOT to touch Little Busters and Hidamari Sketch to save myself some sanity. I knew I wouldn't enjoy these so why keep going with something I know I'll hate! CHII IS LEARNING!

Sorry Hiro!

Gintama started up again but we only got a few new episodes to sink out teeth into. They were great episodes too! I wish we got more but we will be getting some come January sometime so at least there's that to look forward to. I find it interesting that they are airing re-runs in the meantime! Initial D Fifth Stage started and it is as good as ever. So nice to see more of this show being animated! A few other specials were aired but have stalled so I won't bother talking about them too much since they didn't leave an impression on me. A show that looked cute Haitai Nanafa aired but never got any subs along with another cute one by the name of Picchipichi. I will watch these if they ever surface.

Their lives will forever be changed.

Best Show of fall is Shin Sekai Yori hands down. I can't wait for more! I'd make the top anime Chiisan Oji-san but that's a pretty short show that no one else has heard of anyway. Check it out, it is about a little old man!

Worst Show of fall is Seitokai no Ichizon 2. Yup it still sucks. But it feels like a cop-out making it the worst show of fall since no one watched it. So I'll make Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo the "winner" for the title.

BARF!

Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of fall 2012:

  1. Shin Sekai Yori / From the New World (still airing) 10/10

  28. Teekyuu 4/10
  29. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun / My Little Monster 3/10
  30. Seitokai no Ichizon 2 2/10
  31. Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo 2/10
TANKS!!

TANKS!!

Surprise enjoyment: Busou Shinki was a lovely surprise since it's ova kinda sucked. Btooom started off kinda lame but got better then the ending happened... I'd still say that I enjoyed the show overall though. Girls und Panzer TANKS! That's about it... Wooser no Sono Higurashi I ended up liking a whole lot more than I though I would. Probably because I blogged it. I didn't get a lot of what was going on but that's ok because it was pure randomness!

Surprise fail: Code:Breaker kinda took me by surprise by how much it sucked bawls. Robotics;Notes has let me down but it's not really too much of a surprise. I can't decide if I like or hate the otaku chick...

Honorable mentions: Suki-tte Ii na yo. actually turned out to be a pretty decent show after the first few episodes but still pretty forgettable too. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo keeps on being entertaining. I'm not sure how it keeps happening! Medaka Box 2 as the same score as season 1 but I enjoyed this season slightly more than the first one. I kinda hope we get more of it. Zetsuen no Tempest has a lot of talking but it just happens to be the kind of talking I like a lot. Can't wait to see where this one goes.

366 Days of Anime School Uniforms: Day 236/366 Hidamari Sketch

Day 236/366

Hidamari Sketch lets go to art school and do nothing.

Cute red jumper dresses but I wouldn't want to wear these at school. It just doesn't seem to work for me even though the general design isn't bad. Like the thin bow ties since those always seem to please me. For an art school to have long white sleeved shirts is pretty strange too for me.

Overall: No.

chii’s Does Not Want List

So since I did a favourite anime of all time list I decided to do a list of anime that just didn't do it for me. Like the favourites, making this list has some requirements. It had to have pissed me off a lot and be bad according to my tastes. I generally let a lot of bad things slide by without much thought so these anime ended up leaving a nasty enough impression on me that just made me not able to forget. I have absolutely NO desire to re-watch any of these shows and I generally can't stand the attention they get from most anime fans. Some are failed potential that betrayed my feelings so much that I just can't let it go and some are sequels that completely let me down.

Filling done by narumi (blue monday)

If one of your favourite anime happens to be on this list do not bother leaving flame comments. It will be deleted. Take note that everyone in this world is completely different and so their tastes are different as well. Some people are more compatible than others. If one anime happens to be a masterpiece for someone could be another's poison. These happen to be my poisons! Like my Favourites List I'll update this one when something decides to be a terrible anime that just has to make the list.

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".

~A Look at Anime to Come~ Fall 2010

Wait what happened to Summer 2010 you ask? Basically I was too busy with real life stuff. We threw an event that I made a lot of decorations for in July and since then there's been plenty of travel and birthday parties to tend to. Now that fall is on it's way and things are calming down again it's time to get back to being a hermit for me and watching current airing anime. Looking at this countdown site and some charts here and there, I've put together this little look of anime to look forward to for fall.

* means I'm looking forward to it... There's not much... Lets start with some season 2's!

~SEQUELS~

*Sora no Otoshi­mono 2

I love this show to bits. It's loaded with fan-service and the story is pretty darn cliche but I love all the characters to no end because they make me laugh.

*Yumeiro Patissiere 2

^__^

Ichigo Amino keeps up with her dream to be a great pastry maker! The show started off pretty meh to me but grew on me a lot as episodes flew by. Now I can't wait each week to see a new one. HAPPY HAPPY MACAROON FUN FUN GO!

*Arakawa Under the Bridge 2

...there's more!

The wacky cast is back for more adventures under the bridge they call home.

Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan 2

S1 wasn't that great but it wasn't too terrible either. I'll watch it for the sake of completion.

Let­ter Bee 2

I hope there's less crying...

*A Cer­tain Magical Index 2

Unlike most, I really enjoyed Index 1 and disliked Railgun. So I'm quite pleased that this is being made and hope it's just as entertaining as its S1.

Motte To Love-Ru

I know nothing about this show as I haven't seen the first one and have no intention of getting around to it this year or ever probably. Maybe when I run out of anime. Could be sooner than later. Bottom line. This is the only anime I will not be watching.

~NEW~

*Psychic Detect­ive Yakumo AKA Shinrei Tantei Yakumo

Eyes of a different colour. So?

Well his red eye there gives him a special ability to see ghosts and spirits! Makes me think of Natsume Yuujinchou but with more mystery attached to it because he wants to help them get to the afterlife.

Panty and Stocking with Gar­ter­belt

lol

Idol angels sent to Earth to fight ghosts... The animation looks totally interesting so I'm game.

Bak­u­man

Lots of manga fans are looking forward to this one. I have a feeling it may fall flat for me. But if the characters win me over it could be amazing. Boys helping each other make a manga just doesn't seem all that interesting to me. But if it is mixed with great characters and some comedy, it'll win me over like Doujin Work did.

The World God only Knows AKA Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai

About a guy who is good at playing games and winning 2D girls hearts... Righto. This one has a lot of hype around it like Bakuman but I'm skeptical about this one not being all that great.

*Iron­man

Finally!?

Hope it actually comes out this time 😛 I'm a fan of the live action movies and read a few comic here and there. So it shall be interesting to see in come to life in anime form.

Inva­sion! Squid Girl AKA Shinryaku! Ika Musume

I can't even begin...

Moe teaches you not to pollute the oceans or squid loving girls will come for you! lol I can't even begin...

MM!

This one makes me think of B Gata H Kei but it's the males turn to be all weird and perverted. (Like "normal") Instead of making it known like the girl in B Gata H Kei he tries to hide it.

Yosuga no Sora

D:

Harem...

Togainu no Chi

Makes me think of Bus Gamer but I think this will actually go somewhere. Probably not far but I can hope. Survival, crime, war. I hope for lots of action and blood. The, from what I can tell, all boy cast seems interesting to me as well XD

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes

I like detectives so it was only a matter of time before moe got it's hands on it.

Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto

Interesting robots I'll say that much. Kinda creepy actually. The idea sounds so generic though but there's a lot of people from a tonne of series I love working on this so who knows.

Otome Yokai Zakuro

Catgirls and the Military... k then

"It’s the Meiji Era in a slightly alternate Japan" This sentence is so hilarious to me because looking at the picture above... DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO SAY "slightly alternate" XD I'm not sure who the target audience is here because of the "fox" ear girls and pretty boys in uniforms. It probably will be slow and boring but could be interesting if given a chance.

My Little Sis­ter Can’t Be This Cute AKA Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai

......

Lolicon bait. Sure to be a hit with most loli fans.

Sore­demo Machi wa Mawatteiru

More maids ;__;

A maid who wants to be a detective... oh why? Could have some laughs, but I'm not holding my breath.

Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls

Queen's Blade?

Maybe not quite Queen's blade since it's about "school girls". So I'll go with perhaps it's going to be what the Real Bout High School anime should have been!

For­tune Arterial

D:

Has a Vampire in it... Harem... Eroge Visual Novel... It has already failed for me.

Kur­age­hime

Erm..

I don't know about this one. It feels like it's going to be this seasons Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei but instead of a male it's a female. Throw in some otaku stuff of course.

Nougyou Musume AKA Agricultural Girls

 

Yay farming

This is going to be short 3 minute episodes about some girls that love to grow things. Hope it's good cause it looks adorable.

There's a bunch of ova's coming out but who knows when most really come out and well there's a lot of them that I haven't seen their series or really want to see. I'm looking at you Hidamari Sketch. >.<

At this point I have no idea which titles I'm going to blog. Suggestions welcome ^_^ Overall I'm kinda meh with this line up. I generally never complain about such things because there's always SOMETHING to look at. When only 2 new shows out of like 20 or so that I'm really interested in are airing it's kinda a let down.
