Tuesday Tally 2013 So Far

Yup been a while yet again but oh well... Gaming kept me busy!

By the one and only matataku!

So I was going to not watch the winter anime till they all finished but wanting to get taking the screens to put up on Anime-Planet over with as soon as possibly lead me to picking everything up when all their episode 4's came out. Hockey started up again too which for some reason meant in my mind that I should watch the anime because I won't be gaming? I don't understand my thought process sometimes! Made sense at the time... I already chatted about all the shorts that are airing and some S2's HERE so check that out if you want. The only update from that post I have to talk about is that very day Line Offline Salaryman actually appeared with subs, turns out it is a pretty cute show that I enjoy greatly. Office workers doing office worker things! There's a bunny, cat, and bear "people" that work there too! Beast Saga has gotten off to a start too which is surprising. Only one episode of that is out so far but I found it to be decently entertaining so I'm looking forward to more episodes appearing.

Alright I'll start with all the winter shows thoughts I have then dive into the random stuff I've watched so far this year. I'll order the winter shows from favourite to not so favourite.

MEAT BONE!

Yes, feed that bird more MOCHI!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WINTER 2013

  • Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - There's a lot more to this anime than the BOOBS that a lot of people only talk about for some reason. I don't understand why people do this honestly. Sure it is one little fanservice part. Then again the show that this is most like, Spice and Wolf, had the same deal going on with a naked wolf girl running around from time to time. So shut it because this anime is so much more than boobs and anyone that watches past episode 1 should agree. Looking at a war between humans and demons, 2 special people end up becoming really close and work together to end the war in a peaceful way that won't destroy the lively hood of their worlds. I really like the 2 main characters and I think I should try and write a review about it when it is finished to get all my thoughts out on it because this small paragraph really sucks.
  • Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo? AKA Problem Children Are Coming From Another World Aren't They? - Holy crap long titles are long -__- Anyway this was on my radar for being good and I like it when things that I want to be good turn out good. I really like the characters and look forward to watching it weekly.
  • GJ-bu - Funnier than I expected. It is the kind of random slice of school life comedy I enjoy greatly. Love all the characters especially the cat girl and her meat bones! Too awesome.
  • Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman - Old timey Japan Lupin style. Enough said. Entertaining and has an awesome dog in it.
  • Cuticle Tantei Inaba - This is like Milky Holmes but way more funny so it is more like Azazel-san instead. I'm not sure why I'm enjoying this honestly... Probably the randomness.
  • Tamako Market - Holy shit guys... This is a KyoAni show that I'm actually enjoying more than just a "passable" mark! This hasn't happened since Full Metal Panic Fumoffu and The Second Raid! I think this show is why I had a dream of making mochi last night and now I'm on a mission to bring you guys some Cooking With Oishii Anime mochi posts! My only complaint is that I wish it didn't have that typical look KyoAni moved towards with K-On. Also that bird is fucking hilarious!
  • Vividred Operation - Yeah, yeah there's butts in this. But (hehe) there's so much more too. This is the kind of stupid show I have no expectations for at all and end up enjoying greatly. I mean there's some kind of attack going on, the girls have to transform a-la-magical-girl and then kick ass. What's not to like?

They eat a lot of sushi in this "suggestive" way.

Pretty eyeballs you got there lady.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Dokidoki! Pretty Cure - I have this tentatively in my lower half for winter because only one episode has come out so far. It was actually a pretty good episode but I always wait a bit before trying to rate a Pretty Cure show. So far I definitely can say that I like it more than Smile but not by much at the moment. [email protected]'s VA being a baddie in this one!
  • [email protected] - Lots of talking about nothing... One of the few anime where the bro likes the sis that actually creeps me out.
  • Amnesia - I only have one thing nice to say about this anime... Those eyes are PRETTY! I really hate the main chick...
  • Senran Kagura - A bunch of boobed girls are going to school to become ninja's. Pretty typical fanservice type of show. I do however really like their teachers, especially Kiriya.
  • Kotoura-san - I love, love, LOVE telepathy to death. I'm seriously obsessed with it. So when an anime ends up having this come up it always interests me. Too bad most of the time the show ends up being terrible. This is no exception to that rule... I will keep watching it though because of the telepathy laughs to be had in this boring school life show.
  • Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru - NO!

Mew~

OTHER ANIME SO FAR THIS YEAR

  • Nekomonogatari (Black) - Lots more talking about nothing.
  • Tokyo Loop - Bunch of shorts all patched together to form this movie. Something like 16 artists helped create this fun collection of short works. Check it out if you like strange visuals and art house pieces.
  • Mameshiba - Had to re-watch this because a batch with all of them came out. I LOVE BEAN DOGS!
  • Koi-ken! Watashi-tachi Anime ni Nacchatta! - ehhh more shorts of idol culture. Pretty boring
  • Eiyuu Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki AKA The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky - I watched this sure but can't really remember what it is about other that fantasy setting. Yup one of those bore you to death fantasy shows. I remember it looking pretty good though.
  • Magic Tree House - Round Cow says it best. You should watch it!
  • Houkago Midnighters AKA After School Midnighters - Not bad but not good. Very clearly made for kids yet there's some scenes in it that I think most parents over here would not approve of!
  • Memories Off - So this shitty ova series has 4 ova's to it. First 2 are 3 painful episodes long, the 3rd one has 4 more painful episodes and then we finish off with the 4th one being one "movie" episode. Sometimes I think I hate myself watching "romantic" garbage like this...
  • Zettai Karen Children - I'm still getting through this one but I've seen 10 episodes so far. It is mostly comedy with some random missions tossed in there for our psychic power welding girls.
  • Bokura ga Ita - I might actually have a review coming of this... I hated it SO MUCH I don't even want to rant anymore about it at the moment... I very much so hate most shoujo shows of this nature...
  • Key the Metal Idol - Finally finished this one after a month of trying. It was a long ride and it was one of the anime that my Secret Santa gave me. I'm glad I didn't try to blow through it to write a review for it because honestly I dunno where I would have started. I still don't. It is very interesting, disturbing, boring, and wtf all at once. I know I really enjoyed it so all of that was a good thing about it!

Till next time folks~

On the Seventh Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Seven Pretty Cure Titles

On the Seventh Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Seven Pretty Cure Titles,
Six Underrated Shows,
(Twenty)Five Years of Final Fantasy,
Four Video Game Feels,
Three Idol Shows,
Two Amazing Cartoons,
and The Best Boots in All of Anime

Watched them all now so why not make a list! (ok well not all still waiting on the second season of yes to get finished but close enough right?)

1. Suite Pretty Cure

Everything about this series was pure awesome. There's only one thing that could have made it better but I won't say here because it's a pretty big spoiler for what does actually happen in the series. Best mascots ever.

2. Yes! Pretty Cure 5/GoGo!

I marathoned the first season of yes this year only because I got completely addicted to the characters. There's a pretty darn good story for this season that just kept me wanting more. Transforming mascots kick ass.

3. Heartcatch Pretty Cure!

Everyone's favourite Pretty Cure series is only 3rd favourite for me. I'm all about the weak kicking ass but it's over done a lot.

4. Pretty Cure/Pretty Cure Max Heart

Where it all began. I think I wanna go back and re-watch this for the fights and kickassery. This one is the most like Sailor Moon for me.

5. Smile Pretty Cure!

The currently airing Smile just doesn't quite do it for me as much as I was hoping. Yayoi is the most annoying girl ever to me.

6. Fresh Pretty Cure!

I didn't overly enjoy this one. I didn't like the characters or the look honestly. Their Magical Girl Uniforms looked pretty ugly too. But having almost all of them go to different schools was pretty darn interesting. A shout out to Sailor Moon yet again perhaps. Most annoying mascots ever too.

7. Pretty Cure Splash Star

I hate this one with a passion... Stupid Pretty Cure 1 clone wannabe... >.<

Here's to hoping that the next Pretty Cure coming next year, Dokidoki! Pretty Cure will rock!

Days of Anime School Uniforms: 323/366 Smile Pretty Cure

323/366

Smile Pretty Cure 5 more girls with magical powers!

The latest instalment of the Pretty Cure series isn't one of my favourites and the school uniform doesn't help matters either. I enjoy the blue jumper skirt with the white trim but that's about it. The top is long sleeved and white with strange blue shoulder pad thingys. I hate the ties. I know the ties are to go along with their Pretty Cure colours and all but ish. I can't stand them all being different and that stripe to try and match the skirts just looks awful.

Overall: I'll totally pass on these uniforms... But all the magical girl uniforms are cute! I'll go with Cure March or Cure Beauty.

Days of Anime School Uniforms: 322/366 Suite Pretty Cure

322/366

Suite Pretty Cure my favourite of the franchise so far.

While this is my favourite Pretty Cure these uniforms aren't my favourite of the bunch. But they are my second favourite! The baby blue looks so cute paired up with the pink trim, buttons, and bow tie. Love that the skirt has a double thing going on too.

Overall: Sure! I'm super fond of all the magical girl uniforms but I wouldn't wear Cure Rhythm's but Cure Beat is the number one choice I'd make to wear one.

Days of Anime School Uniforms: 321/366 Heartcatch Pretty Cure

321/366

Heartcatch Pretty Cure weaklings have their own strengths too!

We have a nice batch of simple uniforms here. The one we see the most is the white one with the pink buttons and big red bow tie. They are snazzy looking. Boy uniforms are all white which is always fun instead of all black. Next we see the pale and spooky uniform. Grey and brown in tone it fits this character perfectly.

Overall: All for sure. While Cure Moonlight is kinda a downer her magical girl uniform would suit me best.
