Review of 2010 Anime Part 2 ~Spring~

Like always there was a lot of shows to watch in spring. 24 shows aired and out of that I watched 21. (Well 20 see below) Sometimes the amount scares me that I'm able to keep up with. Thankfully there were a handful of treasures in spring that I was highly looking forward to. There were 6 season "2" shows airing and I watched half of those. Here we go with Spring's Aired Anime.

Baseball

Boobs and Ass








Only Ikkitousen, Major and Jewelpet weren't watched due to all being related to series I haven't even touched yet. I actually can't wait to get my hands on Ikkitousen. I know it's a boob filled, poorly adapted, Romance of the Three Kingdoms knock off but the fan inside me tells me I must watch it at some point. Now that all has aired I think I'll tackle it for next year. Major I'm still afraid of since it's about baseball... Which is funny cause the S2 of Ookiku Furikabutte aired as well which I enjoyed a great deal.

I've always enjoyed spring because there's always plenty of shows to sink my teeth into. Amazingly all are finished airing but 2. SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors and Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri. Long titles are long but worth sitting down and watching if you A: Like the idea of Gundam chibis being ROTK characters or B: Like magical girls who sing. I obviously am in love with SD Gundam way more than Lilpri but both are pretty awesome watches.

The Five Leaves group

Best Show of spring for me was House of Five Leaves. I looked forward to a new episode every week. I drooled over the OP and the art just about made me cum in my pants. It was a lovely slow show about an adorable shy samurai with his bandit buddies. SO GOOD. I gotta re-watch and review it to gush more because it deserves more love.

Worst Show of spring for me aside from Kiss x Sis because I dropped that show like a smelly cat shit down the toilet... Anyway the worst show was Angel Beats. I tried REALLY hard to like it but KEY... I fucking hate you KEY. They can't do anything right. I vowed not to watch anymore of their crap releases ever again but I made an exception for this one because it wasn't made from a VN. It was new but still failed prey to the usual crap KEY puts out. >.<

ewww >.<

Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of spring 2010:

  1. House of Five Leaves 10/10
  2. SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors (still airing) 10/10
  3. Arakawa Under the Bridge 9/10
  4. Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin 9/10
  5. Senkou no Night Raid 8/10
  6. Tatami Galaxy 8/10
  7. Giant Killing 7/10
  8. Ookiku Furikabutte 7/10
  9. Koihime Musou 7/10
  10. Working 7/10
  11. Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan 6/10
  12. Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri (still airing) 5/10
  13. Kaichou wa Maid-sama 5/10
  14. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou 4/10
  15. K-On 4/10
  16. Heroman 4/10
  17. B Gata H Kei 3/10
  18. Mayoi Neko Overrun 3/10
  19. Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru 3/10
  20. Angel Beats 2/10
  21. Kiss x Sis (DROPPED) 1/10







Surprise enjoyment: Giant Killing is about soccer... I'm not a sports person let along a soccer one but this one grabbed me. It wasn't the sport it's self but more so the characters striving for their dreams. It was great fun reading both Shinmaru and Emperor J posts on this wonderful show.

Surprise fail: Uragiri wa Boku no Namae o Shitteiru... I hate "yaoi" series that are like this. All the drama with none of the meat to back it up. I'll stick with those weird yaoi ova's that come out every now and then. At least I get to see sex there.

Honorable mentions: Rainbow started off very rough and tough. The imagery alone was enough to make you wanna cry. It was a really dark anime about boys sent to prison and how insane it was in there for them. It got more uplifting by the end of the series but still kicked you in the balls every chance it got. Heroman... Just exactly what was that? Senkou no Night Raid everyone dismissed after the first episode. But honestly I thought it was great!

This moment of 2010 is sort of a let down for me. The new and improved Romance of the Three Kingdoms series started airing in Japan this spring. It was set for fall 2009 but that didn't happen and it had also aired in China a whole year before Japan even got it for some reason. To say the least, I was the happiest person ever after my first viewing of the older 1991-1992 series back in summer 2009, finding out that it was going to be remade with amazing pretty new dated graphics. It marked my 1000th anime watched total and I honestly couldn't have picked a better title for that milestone. I re-watched it again this summer with a friend and it proved to be super entertaining with a buddy to watch it with. The anime story focuses mainly on Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, and their leader Liu Bei. But the other 2 main warlords also get their spot in the show, Cao Cao and Sun Jian. Together everyone battles with their fists, swords, and political tact.

I really want a PS3 now >.> Dynasty Warriors 7 looks amazing!

I've always been in love with these stories. I've read, watched, and even played almost anything that has to do with them. Like most people in the Western world, the video game Dynasty Warriors really got me hooked into this wonderful tale of men fighting for a piece of the large pie China. Each tale of Wu, Shu or Wei was great fun to play, watch, and learn about through these games.

Romance Of The Three Kingdoms 2009 adaptation.

Sadly deep down I knew that the anime remake was not going have a huge following. To the point actually of not even being touched by subbers. Although to be honest I do have episode one subbed by [Commie] and 4 scattered ones done by [GuguruTL-FaggotryRaws]. I truly wish Commie would have kept going with the project but it's always wise not to put your hopes for certain series that are niche in an already niche hobby like anime. I have gone as far as actually watched some episodes in Chinese. No, I don't speak it as told Kitsune already, but I am that big of a fan so just watching it was good enough for me at the time. One day I do hope I'll get to enjoy this series. Till then I'll just keep watching SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors! Yes, I do plan on blogging about SD Gundam very soon. I was going to start back in Spring but I decided it would be way better to complete watching every other Gundam series instead so I could catch more awesome details of this cute show.

Ohhh yeah! Spring!

I'm not the only one posting spring line up thoughts late so that makes me happy. With the help of awesome charts from Chartfag and from an Anime Countdown site to help me schedule my anime, I've looked around a lot to see who has been saying what and what I'm interested in seeing myself. Unlike last season this one has a lot more to choose from so the chances of finding a lot of awesome always go up along with finding the terrible. Chu-Bra holds my title for worst show of the year so far, although Kiss X Sis could upset Chu-Bra from this title.  Scamp has created a very nice preview as well which was very fun to read and gives a lot of extra little background information to each anime.

* means I'm looking forward to it. Onward!

Angel Beats Everyone is looking forward to this one... I'm skeptical. I have a strong feeling I'm not going to like this because it's made by the same people that made Kanon and Clannad... But this one does have a different formula than their usual dish. Action. Don't screw it up for me studio Key.

* Arakawa Under the Bridge I think this would be the one I'm looking forward to the most aside from the several ROTK anime. Girl meets boy, they have to live under a bridge because that's where she lives. lol ok.

* Battle Brave Warriors (SD Gundam Sangokuden (ROTK) It's going to be fun seeing ROTK characters played out in mecha form 😀

* Betrayal (Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitte Iru) Ang­sty bish­ies with yaoi tones. Could be good, probably will be average or even below average.

B-Type H-Group Looks like a trashy smut manga. Could be entertaining in a groan kind of way as most smut is.

Giant Killing Football (soccer) anime. I'll give it a whirl. Never watched an anime based on this sport before oddly enough.

Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan seems to be a popular video game

Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan Anime based off a game hardly ever do it for me. But since I haven't played the game it could be ok as I have no expectations for it that way.

Heroman I think it's going to flop... I'll be very VERY surprised if I like it.

* Hetalia 3 already started and I'm already very much a fan.

Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou More magical academy anime but this has lots and lots of fanservice. Gonna be another boring harem trying to be unique.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama Ladies vs Butlers without the fanservice. (At least not to that extent) Definitely looks like it's more aimed at girls than boys this time around. Gives off an Ouran feel to it for me.

Kiss X Sis Inces­t is fun but not when it's done like this. The ova was... Special...


Vocaloid K-on! girls lol


K-On! Season 2 I watched S1 with a friend and that same friend wishes me to watch it with him again. I'll do it for him as I really have no interest in watching a S2 of girls playing instruments in school. Image above done by ~shaoron.

Mayoi Neko Overun Nyaa! Loli cat in a box. Oh boy. I love cats and all but I don't think this anime is going to get very far enjoyment wise unless something super interesting happens plot wise.

* Rainbow - Nisha Rokubo no Shichinin Dark and gloomy. It's about some boys that go through hard times but they always look towards a better place.

***** Romance Of The Three Kingdoms After almost a year of waiting the time has finally come for this remake to be aired in Japan. I loved the first one when I watched it last summer (Made it my 1000th anime watched) and thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if they remade this with today's graphics. Little more than a month later this showed up on my radar and my wish had been granted. Now I can only hope that someone will pick it up to be subbed as other really awesome ROTK anime seem to not have quite the following (Souten Kouro).

* Sarai ya Goyou (House of Five Leaves) Edo-era Japan with the sho­guns. I'm there.

* Senko no Night Raid Fighting secret wars in China, I'm game. Looks like a lot of fun with pretty animation.

* Shin Koihime Musou Otome Tairan Huzza more of my black haired beauty and her interesting friends are back for more crazy action and odd ecchi moments.


Working is fun


* Working! Read my PreRelease thoughts here. Basically I like it.

Yojo-han Shinwa Taikei Looks quirky so we're in for some weird animation. Plot seems to be interesting enough as well following a person reminiscing about their past.

Yutori-chan 1-4 already aired. She works for a telemarketing company. Random stories and fun occur including some close encounters with the boss, cellphones, and illness! Could be cute. I like that it's short episodes.

~~~~~

That's it for everything that I will be watching/airing. Oddly there are a lot of things I'm interested in and of course a lot that I have no interest in either. There are always lots of OVA's and some movies that come out but I won't really bother talking about those. GINTAMA movie!!! Also everyone seems to be really hyped about the ova Black Rock Shooter. I personally don't care either way about it but I will watch to see exactly what all the hype is about. Here are some second seasons or beyond that I probably will not get around to. But I can hope. 😛

Jewelpet 2nd and Marie and Gali 2 No one will probably pick these up because both their S1's were dropped.

Ookiku 2 and Major 6 Both are about baseball... ewww. But I did just get Ookiku S1 so since it's only 25 episodes and ONE season to worry about, I'll be watching it next week most likely. I hope it's good and not boring like almost all other baseball anime I have watched.

Ikkitousen If I get around to watching all the other seasons I'll pick it up. Highly unlikely. I do want to start this series someday though. I'm a sucker for Romance of the Three Kingdoms knockoffs as you all already know.

Ring ni Kakero 1 Highly will try to watch the older one(s) first. But since I haven't even done that with Cobra it's unlikely that it'll happen. Although it is 24 episodes between the 2 of them so it's likely to be watched next week along with Ookiku.

Iron Man Originally was on the line up but sadly will be delayed till Fall 🙁 The live action movie Iron Man 2 will have to make do till then. Can't wait!

Bakugan... We'll see as I just finished S1 and half way through S2... Don't ask why...

Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri Uhhhg what a title. I honestly don't even know what this is about. Something to do with card games and magical girls. No thanks. Looks like Pretty Cure mixed with Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch... >.<
