366 Days of Anime School Uniforms: Day 84/366 Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne

Day 84/366

Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne is a stupid anime about a chick who likes her bro.

I have no idea what the creators were thinking when they came up with these character designs let alone the uniforms. Girls wear a sailor uniform with the blue skirt but then the tops turn ugly. In your face orange sweaters with a huge blue bow. I kinda like the white shirt with the blue stripes around the cuffs but even that can't save this uniform from being hideous. At least the pantsu are cute! Boys aren't anything special either. White tops and black pants. Big whoop.

Overall: NO WAY IN HELL!

Review of 2011 Anime Part 1 ~Winter~

This winter we got 20 shows. Quite a bit more from last years 12 or so. All shows that aired were watched. There are a few ova's that I didn't pick up but that's not an issue since they are related to series I haven't seen yet. Everyone should know by now that I make it a yearly goal to watch all anime that airs in the year. I've been doing that for the last 3 years. I find it pretty fun and it makes these posts awesome. Anyway onward with winter aired anime!

Picture by mzh

Winter is either really fun or kind of meh. Unlike the last 2 years this year I didn't get a 10/10 anime that aired which I found a little weird because pretty much every season I get one of those... "Everyone's"  top anime of the year/decade came out. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica was fun but I just couldn't get into it as much as everyone else. I do however love Kyubey very very much. I'd make a contract!  /人◕ ‿‿ ◕人\

Suite Pretty Cure has jumped to the top of the pretty cure franchise for me. It's quite awesome and exceeded my high expectations that Heartcatch created. I only hope that the upcoming Smile can match the awesomeness that has become Pretty Cure! <3 Siren!

The King of baka's!

Best Show of winter is Level E. It did wonderful things in a hilarious way. I laughed a lot. I only wish that it could have been longer. It needed just a little extra bit of something to be amazing. All the characters were really great. The show almost seemed like it was a parody of sorts for Men in Black since it was about aliens on earth but no one else knows about them.

Worst Show of winter is without a doubt is the oh so terrible Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne... So bad that most people watched this show with sccsav while drinking because that was the only possible way to get through this show. Unless you are me of course! Everything about this show is offensive...

...just...no...

Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of winter 2011:

  1. Level E 8/10
  2. Suite Pretty Cure 8/10
  3. Wolverine 8/10
  4. Fractale 8/10
  5. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica 7/10
  6. Beelzebub (still airing) 7/10
  7. Gosick 7/10
  8. Kore wa Zombie desu ka? 7/10
  9. Supernatural The Animation 7/10
  10. Kimi ni Todoke 7/10
  11. Dream Eater Merry 6/10
  12. Freezing 6/10
  13. Mitsudomoe 5/10
  14. Cardfight!! Vanguard (still airing) 5/10
  15. Infinite Stratos 5/10
  16. Rio: Rainbow Gate 5/10
  17. Wandering Son 4/10
  18. Dragon Crisis 3/10
  19. Starry Sky 2/10
  20. Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne 1/10

...

Surprise enjoyment: Supernatural The Animation was quite enjoyable. It probably helps a lot that I haven't seen the American show it originally is. I really like that ED. Beelzebub started off pretty weak but after a while I sank in and started to really like the characters.

Surprise fail: Gosick I honestly expected much more from. Sure it has a pass rating from me but I really just wanted to be wow'd by it and that never happened.

Honorable mentions: Rio: Rainbow Gate! Sharks, Gambling, and boobs! Fractale is a show everyone hated on but I still got a lot of enjoyment out of it regardless. Wolverine was super fun and Landon agrees! Wandering Son is my most hated noitaminA show. The only one I hate actually. Which is hilarious because everyone loves it.

Tuesday Tally Week 5 February 1-7 Catch Up

Since I was so behind on all my current anime watching I decided to dedicate my Saturday, Sunday, and Monday to catching up with these titles. Earlier on in the week I watched a lot of shorts I had been meaning to watch for a while now along with tonnes of Gintama.

So pretty! XD

Watch episode 113 to understand XD










February 1-4

Gintama episodes 106-146+ both OVA's

Overall: I have come to the conclusion that the episodes revolving around the trannies and bathroom issues are by far my favourite episodes of the entire series. I hope I get a few more before I am finished but I can always look forward to Season 2 airing this spring. I also really enjoy the action packed story arcs. They are SO kick ass and generally have me watching none stop until they are finished. Such amazingly funny characters showing their super serious side to one another is just so special to me. Can't wait to keep going and see what laughs await me.

Jigokudou Reikai Tsuushin OVA

Overall: Fun and random mysterious supernatural ova. The animation was a little out there but it actually seemed fitting to add more mystery to it. There was 3 stories in one that somehow just flowed along like one big story. 45 minutes well spent!

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Movie 1

Overall: WAY better than the series shitty Season 1.  It honestly was a great recap of it because it cut out all the crap and left in all the awesome. I watched Season 1 dubbed too so watching the movie subbed was a much better experience for that. I still love how the magical staff just talks in English and seems like it's the one in charge half the time. Good stuff and I can't wait to watch movie 2 even though it won't be out until 2012.

Paniponi Dash episodes 1-4

Overall: Started this on a whim because I didn't want to watch anything else I had at the moment. I had heard interesting things about it and since it is one of digitalboy's top 100 anime, I just had to check it out. Not much to say about it so far. It's humour is pretty hit and miss and of course it reminds me a lot of Lucky Star due to its weird parodies. I'm not sold on it yet but I'm not running away in fear.

^___^

Gundam Seed episodes 26-37

Overall: Slowly making progress on this show. I think around episode 35 I actually started to care what was going on simply because it got more interesting. Episode 26 was one huge recap too which helped me and my partner out since it had been a while since we had watched the show. Episode 27 brought us a new OP and we both agree that it is not as good as the other ones. I can't stand the bowling pin noises I can't help to hear in the song. It just sounds wrong and the new ED isn't on our good side either but it isn't as dislikes as the OP. If I had to pick one character that I don't hate in the slightest it would be Sai. He is just simply awesome. Mu La Flaga is also among my favourites along with the masked man. They make good rivals!

Hoshi ni Negai o OVA

Overall: Very much one of those weird Sci-Fi internet type shows. It's interesting enough but I can't really explain what went on cause stuff just happened.

Houkago no Pleiades OVA

Overall: VROOOOooooOooooM! Magical girls with a sponsorship from the car company Subaru have a lot of people scratching their heads wondering why. I personally just thought the ova was super fun and now I have magical girls to think about when I see Subaru cars on the road rather than the sexy car wash hunks that I saw in a commercial a few years ago!

Sonic: Night of the WereHog OVA

Overall: It was added to Anime-Planet so I watched it. I don't have much to add here except maybe I'm an animation watching whore...

Kanzen Shouri Daiteioh, Transformers: Scramble City, Kamen Rider SD, Shina Dark, Kigurumikku V3 OVA's I watched but have nothing of significance to say about them.

SHORTS: Kid's Castle, To Shoot Without Shooting, Aquatic, Dojoji, House of Flame, Briar Rose or The Sleeping Beauty, The Life of a Poet, Anthropo-Cynical Farce, Oni, Hanaori, Travel. These are all really weird older animations and most have to do with puppets. Some pretty weird and abstract stuff for sure. Kihachiro Kawamoto Film Works is where most of these came from and the others are from Koji Yamamura Film Works, which I can't wait to watch the rest of. If you are interested enough you'll look it up 😛

Fist bump of magical DESTRUCTION!

*sniffles* I'll miss you girls!








February 5

Heartcatch Precure episodes 46-49 END

Overall: What a wild finish to what I'd like to say is the best Pretty Cure series to date. I've put a lot of time into this franchise and I'm glad I've finally truly enjoyed a series from start to finish. I didn't have to be coursed into it after 20 episodes or so like most of the others to get enjoyment out of it. I love how this series all the girls are of very different ages and still manage to find common ground. Old learning from the young and vice versa. I will miss this series but I shall be eagerly awaiting the movie that is coming out soon!

Fractale episodes 2-4

Overall: I'm in love with this world. It gives you so much to think about and explore within it. I'm not fond of how we keep getting dicked around with the show in general though. It's rubbing me the wrong way and I know I'm not the only one feeling this as some people have already dropped it at this point. I'm willing to keep going with it though since I really do like it a lot.

Starry Sky episodes 5-7

Overall: Are there really fans for this show????

Wandering Son episodes 2-4

Overall: SLOW!!! I hate shows where each episode feels like movie length. I almost fell asleep 3 times. I don't overly care for the plot in general either. Nor do I really enjoy the art. It's pretty but it's so light that it just hurts my eyes after a while.

Kimi ni Todoke 2 episodes 2-4

Overall: This show is completely adorable but enraging at the same bloody time. The fact that I can relate to most of the girl characters kinda weirds me out at just how realistic this anime really is. I like that factor about it though and still look forward to a confession between our two very awkward love birds.

Astro Fighter Sunred episode 49

Overall: The egg dish that Vamp cooked up looked really good. I love this show so much and it gave me a great idea for a new blogging project that I hope to start up after my diet.

Should take your clothing off first boy!

She REALLY has a boney ass...








Mitsudomoe 2 episodes 3-5

Overall: Oddly season 1 didn't make me laugh nearly as much as season 2 seems to be making me. I'm very interested in these kind of shows that have a better S2 than their S1. At least that's from my opinion. The series started off weak with that first episode but has gotten better and better as it goes along. I actually look forward to a new episode each week where before I could have cared less.

Rio ep 2-5 episodes

Overall: Who thinks up these strange games? I find them to be very weird sometimes and very un-casino like. I really like the ED but only the first 20 seconds with the bunny girls doing leg lifts... Something about that is just awesome.

IS episodes 3-5

Overall: Fanservice fun is all I'm really getting out of this show. I do like the weird mecha design they got going though. Not much else to say about it honestly.

Loli wants you to eat some poop

Those babies are SO SCARY o.o








February 6

Freezing episodes 3-5

Overall: This really is starting to make me think of Queens Blade but with annoying male characters and in a school setting. These girls simply can not keep their clothing on which makes watching battles highly amusing. I love trying to guess which girl will flash a boob to us first. Episode 5 introduced a new girl joining the school and I think she'll end up being my favourite of the bunch. There's just something super adorable about her!

Gosick episodes 2-5

Overall: Episodes 2-3 on the ship was awesome. I think that story would have made a better anime on it's own than this one. Not overly fond of this Gothic loli but meh.

Cardfight!! Vanguard episodes 2-5

Overall: I'm weirded out that I've actually started to get into this show since I'm not generally interested in card battle shows in the slightest. I'm amused by how they imagine themselves battling as the cards and that they also make strange dying faces when they take damage. I'm also weirded out by the fact that I keep expecting or subconsciously wanting this to turn out like Hikaru no Go! I think I need some boardgame anime to make this weird feeling go away. Or MAYBE I'll be delightfully surprised...

Yumekui Merry episodes 2-5

Overall: I don't hate it but i don't have anything to really say about it either...

Naruto in my Index?

The chick in the middle SO looks like a dude...








Index II episodes 13-17, Letter Bee 2 episodes 12-16, Super Robot Wars ~ The Inspector episodes 14-18

Overall: Not much to say about these. They are making some interesting progress as we slowly near the end. Index just got finished up with a pretty interesting arc. Letter Bee had some amazing progress but Lag certainly still cries... SRW is the same as ever. Entertaining but slightly boring at times.

Suite PreCure episode 1

Overall: I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. I'm always afraid of magical girl series that take a dive into music. Especially since this one reminds me a lot of Onegai my Melody which isn't very good at all... Time will tell. One thing that I do like about it is that the girls bicker a lot so far. This reminds me of Pretty Cure Max Heart which is one of my favourites in the franchise.

Macross Plus shout out perhaps?

Yup that kid is still a weirdo...








February 7

Star Driver episodes 15-18 & Bakuman episodes 14-17

Overall: Both series are coming along splendidly. I find myself enjoying Bakuman more and more with each episode that comes out where generally all I hear around me is moaning and complaining over how crappy it is. Oh well though.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica episodes 1-5

Overall: Re-watched this one from the start to see exactly what all the fuss is about. I still don't quite understand all the high praise but I do understand why people are freaking out over it as much as they are. I'm interested I'll give it that much but I still think it's trying a little too hard to bring forth a dark magical girl side where things have pretty sever consequences if you fail or falter. I really love the music though that is highly fitting for the series. Still getting use to the strange imagery but I can see how people would gobble that up since it's very different from the norm.

Dragon Crisis & Oniichan episodes 2-5

Overall: Yawn

SO OISHII!!!

Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri episodes 40-43

Overall: My singing magical girls are still going strong with each episode that flies by. I've come to really enjoy that they get new outfits with each new episode too. I simply LOVED the wedding dresses in episode 40 and in number 42 the skating theme was wonderful. Hello chii's girly side much? XD

Kore wa Zombie desu ka episodes 2-5

Overall: Funny stuff but it's gotten a little tiresome after the first 2 episodes. That first episode sure did bring in the masses with how random and hilarious it was. I still love the idea of a magical girl zombie that just happens to be a boy.

Wolverine episodes 3-5

Overall: Just seems to me like this is one action packed weird romance show. I do find however that the action is a lot of the same thing over and over again. I can always predict Logan getting beaten up but somehow winning or something happens where neither can fight it out any longer. The chick that is following him around seems to be a pretty useless character only around for revenge purposes. I do however really like that samurai that has his sword in his hand. Reminds me a lot of X which is AOK by me.

Beelzebub episodes 2-5 + OVA

Overall: I watched the ova first before resuming the episodes and came to realize that the ova basically summed up all these episodes so I feel like i've wasted over an hour on this series that I'm not entirely sure where it's going. I get that he's a demon baby and all but the gags and the baby himself is just plain annoying. I enjoy some of the humour but it's getting old.

Episode Count: 145 +  23 Specials/OVAs + 1 Movie

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.

Thoughts on Winter Anime After 1 Episode

I'll keep this short and sweet. After all if I really wanted to talk a lot about these shows I'd give them each their own posts 😛

* means I'll be looking forward to these series each week.

PANTS PLEASE!

Bleh








* Beelzebub shall be interesting to see where it goes. It tries a little too hard to be funny for my tastes but that's what shounen is all about. I really hope that demon baby gets pants at some point. For some reason seeing that little boys dong so often creeps me out. I do look forward to the fights that this show shall be bringing.

Dragon Crisis will be the second worst episode that I've watched this winter behind the Brother love show. I love dragons and all but I don't generally want them in loli form. I like them as REAL dragons. I feel like someone took a look at Niche from Letter Bee and was like I need to make her better somehow... Oh hey lets make her a dragon and put her into a box! YEAH that'll work!!! -.-

Girls appearing out of no where...

...are very strange!








Dream Eater Merry AKA Yumekui Merry I didn't expect this show to interest me in the slightest honestly. It's giving off a Soul Eater vibe that I like though.

* Fractale is a delightful Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou with a plot. We visit a futuristic world that relies a lot on computers to make people happy. We weren't given much to chew on plot wise yet but it'll come in the next episode I'm sure. For now we are left with a girl who appears out of a pendant and our lead boy is shocked. Honestly I was too. Best OP and ED along side of Level E for me as well.

lol...

...

* Freezing was a whole lot of fun honestly. Violence, blood, and boobs. I could do without the boobs and ecchi moments but it still does add to the entertainment of the show. I shall have a lot of fun watching this show this season.

Gosick was a HUGE let down. I was actually expecting to like this one a lot because I do love mysteries but man... I hate the chick already and her male counterpart already shows signs of no spine. No thank you.

Bleh

The tsundere starts








Haiyoru! Nyaruani: Remember My Love makes me wonder why they are making more of this. It was bad enough the first time around does it really need another part to it? I just don't get it.

IS: Infinite Stratos is Ladies vs Butlers with a sci-fi mecha twist. I relitivly enjoyed LvB so I actually liked this first episode even though it was painfully cliche. I shall look forward to seeing more of the mecha in this though as the 2 minutes or whatever it was at the beginning of the episode just wasn't enough for me to judge.

Nice view

^_^








Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? probably had the most funny first episode of all airing this winter. I am afraid though that they will not be able to keep up with the pace that they have set and it will get stale. I hope I'm wrong but who knows with parody comidies. I do love my magical boy transformation scenes though and this one pleased me greatly. The ED for this show was pretty darn good too. Seeing those nipples was entertaining!

* Level E is probably the show I'm enjoying the most, along side of Fractale. I'm so glad I decided to blog it this winter so keep on the look out for those posts.

>.<

Pretty








Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne AKA I Don't Like You at All, Big Brother uhhhhg. I'm sure everyone has ripped into this one a whole lot already so what's one more bad review of it. I'll keep it brief though so lets just say that when a show makes me cringe in the first 10 seconds it's generally a bad omen.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica AKA Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika very forgettable for me. I think people are pretty hyped up about this show but honestly it just kind put me to sleep since I wasn't interested in anything that happened. The art sure is pretty though.

I can't explain what's up with the ferret

His family are weird looking








Rio Rainbow Gate is lucky, shiny, boobs playing casino based card games. Card dealers battle it out to see who is the luckiest and win gate cards from each other. It's a little silly I must say and there are a lot of useless characters. I don't hate it yet but I really don't see why this got the green light either. I suppose someone out there needs their gambling beauty fetish filled in anime form.

Starry Sky is a strange reverse harem of sorts that is taking forever to get into what the show is suppose to be about. Maybe I just don't get it but I'm gonna blame the 10 minute episodes on this one. I probably would have dropped this show by now if it wasn't for the short episode length honestly. AND I kind do still want to see what is suppose to be going on here.

Idols, we all have them.

Yum!








Wandering Son... Where a boy wants to be a girl and a girl wants to be a boy but shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it's a secret... oi I didn't enjoy this first episode at all. Took way too long to say what they wanted to say and then it just crawled by at a snails pace. I will say that it is pretty to look at though. Nice and pastel like.

* Wolverine was an interesting start honestly. I really liked the Canadian shout out with beer. Classy as ever. I'm questioning exactly what they are trying to do with this series still but from what I can make out of it, it'll be romance based with some awesome action. I do laugh at how Logan can stop bullets and kick ass at pretty much everything. But he can't beat a sword swung around by an old man. LOL!

This is generally what happens reaction wise when you watch a movie in a group.

If only she gave the bloody things to him >.<








In the Season 2 part we oddly only have 2 titles. I find this rare honestly because there's generally at least 4. But it being the winter season and all there is less all around so 2 is a good number here.

Mitsudomoe is still the same old show. We start off this season with a look at the newest Gachi Rangers movie or episode or whatever it was. I'm still not a fan of this show but I will admit that when it does hit a funny mark it is totally hilarious.

Kimi ni Todoke... ahhh... This season doesn't feel like a new one honestly and is more like it just keeps on going from the season one. We got an episode 00 to remind us what happened in the first series then episode 1 aired. This episode was about valentines day chocolates... I hate these episodes with a passion and watching stupid Sawako fuck up was just painful. I can not express how much I raged at her... Now this seems very negative but I actually do like the show... I think it's because it does remind me what it was like as a teenager with a first crush.

Overall: I'm a little sad that nothing totally blew me out of the water but I was given at least 5 maybe 7 shows that I think will please me. Oh yeah I completely forgot about Cardfight!! Vanguard... Lets just say this is WAY too shounen little boy for me... But if it'll be 12 episodes like I've heard I'll be able to sit through it.
