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.

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...

  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!

I love it when anime just keeps going and going. Or in some cases gets an update from old to new. Or when we get a new universe with things we are already familiar with! New twists and turns are fun and all of these titles were pleasing in some way or another. Some more so than others...

#1 Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing

Picture by saiko dagashi

Another story from one of my top 100 anime? HELL YES. I was afraid it wouldn't live up to my expectations but it has delivered! How can I hate a show that has a shout out to hockey!

#2 Fate/Zero

Picture by rikoko

I've always been a fan of the Fate series. I haven't played it but I don't really have the time to get sucked into it either. I'd probably never be heard from again or something! Zero has rebooted the Fate series going back to the last war before Night. I'm enjoying it so much and I know I'm not alone.

#3 Suite Pretty Cure

My favourite of all the Pretty Cure series so far. It made me remember the first Pretty Cure anime and ended up making it so much better. I was expecting the worst with music being it's main theme but I've been delightfully surprised on how awesome it is. Looking forward to the next one!

#4 Gundam Age

Most people wrote this Gundam off before it even started stating it was going to be too "kiddy" I've gotten nothing but pure enjoyment out of the next Gundam installment. I think I'm just really glad I have a space show to look forward to every week for the next year or so.

#5 Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera

Picture by 雷仁

A new and updated version of Dororon Enma-kun and having not seen the first one makes me want to watch it even more after this fun show.

#6 Blood-C

Picture by 蔵狐@修行中

This was summers so bad it's good anime. There was never a moment where I wasn't laughing at how silly the whole show was.

#7 Appleseed XIII

I love Appleseed and all but... No one likes this show. It's amazing that a sub group is still doing it. Slowly, but it'll get done.

~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!
