Star Driver is about magical boys and girls who kick ass with the help of some mecha.
These uniforms might be the most well matched uniforms I've ever come across! Tan bottoms with a green jacket. It seems that anyone can wear any coloured tie no matter their gender which is awesome. Tie colour include: Pink, yellow, and blue. I also really like the white trim on the jackets.
Overall: I'd wear it only if I had a boy to wear it with me too~
I didn't forget about this! I just got so busy for December that there was no time to do one. So This one will be short and simple. The list consists of a lot of fall anime and since I already talked about those in my 2010 Fall Review post there is no point talking further about them here unless I have a special moment I wish to share. So here's some fun pictures from everything I watched over the month of December and a little bit of talking in between! I'll be starting the next Tuesday Tally from January 1st onward. I think this is the best way to start off the new year since it'll be way more fun of keeping track of ALL the anime I have consumed in a whole year by starting fresh!
Melody of Oblivion episodes 9-11 were watched and it's still pretty @.@
I watched some anime with the Skype anime viewing group for the first time and ended up sitting through Amagami SS episode 23, episode 4 of Tamayura and Kuragehime episode 8 I watched once on my own and once with the group. Overall that was a fun first experience but hope to do shows I actually care about in the future and that I haven't viewed already.
The rest was just Fall airing anime that ended up having nothing worthy of a mention.
Week 6 Starts off with more current airing anime but I shall only talk about Bleach from that. WE SAW GINS EYES! That is all...
I also re-started Gundam Seed this week and got through 7 episodes. The first time I watched episode 7 I was pissed at the end of it and this time around I felt even more rage oddly enough!
Yosuga no Sora episode 11 deserves a moment here. Sora, Haru, Sora, Haru, Sora, Haru, Sora, Haru, Sora, Haru... Urgg this show is pure crap.
My last Not so Secret Santa anime, Akagi was started. I got through 12 episodes before friends arrived for the week.
Week 7 I finished off Akagi very slowly but got it done before I posted about it on the designated day.
More anime group blogger watches started happening around Christmas time and what better show to pick than the happy go lucky Gundam 0080! This was a re-watch and honestly I was glad to watch it along side some super Gundam fans out there. I didn't like the OVA the first time around watching it on my own but with this re-watch I certainly appreciate it even more now. Those hamburgers were delicious!
Katanagatari episode 12 I finally got around to and lets just say. BEST ANIME OF 2010! More random fall airing anime episodes were watched.
In order to complete my anime goals for 2010 Shiki needed to be restarted since I had pretty much dropped it at episode 10 for being super lame and boring to no end. Man am I ever glad I picked it back up again. Episodes 11-13 were rather dull but gaining re-interest and when episode 14 hit I was hooked. I ended up watching it none stop all the way to episode 21 and ended up eagerly waiting for the final episode to air on new years eve. The end episode was something...
More weird Melody Of Oblivion was watched and it's still very @.@
Week 8 I decided to finish off straggler anime before I left for new years. So that meant picking up the Spring old K-on II. All I can honestly say is blaaaaaaaaa BUT I did find it hilarious that the bf was interested in it but ONLY because they had actual sponsored instruments in the show and he liked that.
Star Driver and Bakuman were caught up with from episode 9-13 for both. I gotta say I've completely enjoying these 2 series even though the majority of people aren't.
For some reason I watched episodes 1-3 of Haiyoru! Nyaru-ani: Remember My Love(craft-sensei). But then again I know I only watched it because I watched the other 2 minute 9 episodes of Haiyoru! Nyaru-Ani before. These ones are only 4 minutes now so no brain damage occurred.
Starry Sky episode 1... Theres a lot of stars in the sky! The lead boys mom looks like she is his age which is a tad disturbing. But not as disturbing as his SUPER girly looking dad.The art honestly looks like they just took the manga and coloured in the pictures poorly.
Melody of Oblivion was finished off and honestly... I still have no idea what I watched... I didn't hate it though that much is known.
Samurai Girls I started from episode 6 straight onto 12. I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much if I didn't watch it in one scoop like this. The art is definitely something to marvel at though.
Gundam Seed episodes 11-15 were watched and they are all new ones for me now. I don't have much to say about it at this point but I did enjoy the odd kind of recap in episode 14 showing the gundam models as a report.
Winter Sonata I had started back in 2009 but subs were slow so I stalled it. Since I wanted some fun anime to bring with me on my new years trip I figured it was the most logical choice. After all I consider anime I actually want to watch fun anime even if the subject at hand is pretty darn harsh and dramatic. Which Winter Sonata will throw at you many many times. I only watched episode 0 which is basically a long plot episode and then the first episode of the series. I had seen both before but watching them again as a refresher was good for me.
Pretty Cure's magical silhouette sequence is awesome... Just sayin...
December was a busy month but was fun! Lots of anime watched and many more to come!
On the Eighth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Seven Gundam Universes,
Six Macross Titles,
Five Delicious Openings,
Four Quirky One Shots,
Three Big Contenders,
Two Amazing Rivals,
and Char Aznable on a Horse
Everyone loves transformations. Sure they take up a large chunk of the show sometimes but they are SO worth it! Pretty Cure is the new Sailor Moon and I've completely been taken by the series. There's a lot of hate for the older ones from me but the newer ones have started getting more love out of me. Deep down every girl wants to be a magical girl! Yes, even some boys too I'm sure!
Heartcatch Pretty Cure!
Here we have 4 lovely ladies who have shined above all magical girl shows this year.
Cure Blossom and Cure Marine
Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri is a close second but they aren't as awesome since all they do is sing better and age for their transformation. They generally do get some super cute outfits though.
Panty and Stocking angels battling the demon sisters Scanty and Kneesocks have taken the anime world by storm this season. Love it or hate it, they are very hard to forget. I personally am not a huge fan of the show but they do have one or 2 funny moments during each episode. In this video we get to see all four ladies do their thing! These transformations are probably my favourite part of Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.
How could I not include the Galactic Pretty Boy from Star Driver!
Tuesday Tally brings you a huge list of what I have watched in the past week. Or in this case the past 2 weeks. But don't worry it won't be a crazy length to go through. I ended up feeling very under the weather last Monday and it kind of lasted for 5 days. It was very hard to sit at the computer during most of those days so Tuesday Tally Week 2 was put off till this week. I can't explain why I barely watched any anime during this time other than I just didn't feel like it. Being sickly does weird things to me at times that I just don't understand.
I still don't have a real formate I'm following for these posts so it may be pretty jumbled at times and bounce around a lot.
November 16th - November 22nd
Imouto ep 7
Overall: Annoying chick has an anime screening! It was a very boring episode for me. Like... Super boring.
Nurarihyon ep 18-19
Overall: I'm completely in love with all these weird little monsters in this show. They are just so awesome but the art still weirds me out a little. Overall it seems pretty nice though. There is this weird creepy tongue dude that is super annoying with his tongue. He really makes me wish that I could chop it off or something. I just realized that the ED pulls me in with the chibis and I end up watching a lot of it before turning it off. I don't even overly like the music or anything. It's just the chibis! They make me remember this Naruto ED. I don't get why they draw me in since I think they are kinda creepy.
Otome Yokai Zakuro ep 7
Overall: Creepy pumpkin child monster was making mud pies or cookies in this case. Ahhhh childhood memories. An adorable woman named Tae appears screaming YOUNG MASTER in front of all the girls. Of course flushes cheeks are all about. It's time to visit father for a lovely awkward dinner. Really cute episode that further bonded these 2 main characters. I enjoyed the father figure
Psychic Detective Yakumo ep 6
Overall: I hate it when inappropriate music for a scene is played. It actually makes me pretty angry... Delicious intestine and arteries anyone? Le eww. The long awaited shirtless scene was not as hot as I hoped it would be. 🙁 I hate that this series is so disappointing.
Star Driver ep 7
Overall: The happy Christmas ad was SO cute in the middle of the episode. Thanks gg XD This weird ass chick has an interesting outfit and almost fail launches. She in general is kinda fail. I'm digging the pink clouds in the background this episode. They are pretty. "I only want your galactic ship" kiss and slap. That was just lolz.
Gundam 00 ep 16-18
Overall: Some new Gundams show up dun dun dun. I like when recap episodes don't take the full episode to do so. I might be growing attached to the civilian storyline after all but I'm still pretty unsure. I REALLY HATE THE GIRL GUNDAM PILOT.
Robot Wars ep 7
Togainu no Chi ep 6
Milky Holmes ep 6
Overall: Politics, blood, and cat butts oh my!
Yumeiro Patissiere Pro ep 7
Overall: CHICKEN! and "We're fans of your veggies."
Legendary Heroes ep 16-17
Overall: Failure inbreeding... Can I just say ewww right there... Very special... "Unknown dumplings await us!" "You must be growing to understand the way of the dumpling!" DELICIOUS DUMPLINGS! I saw a horse that has a unicorn horn as armor. AWESOME!
HeartCatch ep 39
Index II ep 6
Yosuga ep 7
Ika ep 7
Overall: Not much to mention about these episodes at all.
Katanagatari ep 11
Overall: Pretty grim start to it after they start off with a list of the swords they have. I found that to be very nice and refreshing. DANGO nomnoming... I fear that Clannad has ruined dango for me which really pisses me off. There will be dango murder by me very, very soon... Anyway... >.> lol... The episode left off with an awesome cliffhanger. I'm very tempted to re-watch all the episodes before the last one comes out in little over a week but I don't know if I really want to do that either. There is a lot of talky talky after all that is a tad boring at times.
Gundam 00 ep 19-25
Overall: I'm finding the trio are super fun to hate on and I'm not sure how much I enjoy them messing around with the other Gundams. I actually feel a tad sorry for Saji being dumped by his love over her new handicap. But the random montage of their moments with a song playing was just odd... Setsuna: "I believed in God. I was made to believe. There is no God in this world. I believed in God and learned that he did not exist. That's what HE made me do." That whole speech was rather awesome and made me ponder a lot. We finally start to see the real colours of that Chinese chick. She was too transparent for her to be on the Gundams side. There was one point where Setsuna was not able to move his gundam. It felt like a Neon Genesis Evangelion moment that Shinji frequently had. I've said it a million times before but battles in space are the best! They are SO pretty. Lockon... and his awesome Irish revenge. Totally almost cried but didn't! Super excited to start on S2.
Ironman ep 6-7
Overall: The cleaning robot attack was completely hilarious. The way they moved their little arm was just priceless. I laughed when either Tony or the chick he was in the locked room with said they were going to freeze to death when the computer said the temperature was -10°C. Either way that was one crazy hacker. But seriously can one even hijack a plane through the internet? Is that even possible? Tony ends up drugged and brought to an island. An island apparently made of garbage. He is told to join zodiac or die. Oh those silly villains. When will they ever learn? It's always exciting to tune in to see how Tony is doing in his battle against evil each week.
The Rebirth of Buddha Movie - If I wanted to be converted to a religion sure. Overall it was very anime with a supernatural twist that I guess was suppose to be the religious part of it. 7/10
Blazing Transfer Student OVA - Fighting in school that ends up trying to be funny. Meh 4/10.
Melody Of Oblivion ep 1-3
Overall: I'm watching this show with ThePatches. There is a lot of random stuff that seems to go on and I gotta say these first 3 episodes were not anything like I was expecting from this show. I really just have no idea what is going on ever and Patches is just as lost as I am for the most part. All I gotta say is I think I want a bull bus of my own! Viva la monster union!
Gundam F91 Movie - Ironmasked man is pure CRAZY. This was a prequel to V Gundam. Honestly I should have watched it before VG but I just didn't feel like it. I didn't miss out on anything though. Overall the same feeling for it as VG 5/10.
Kuragehime ep 5
Overall: VIRGINSSSS! *sigh* There was a lot of that this episode and it made me giggle madly whenever it happened. I can't get over just how awesome every single character in this show is. I have not a problem with any of them! The episode ends with make overs for all! MA YA YA!!! "To battle you have to dress for battle!" BA M BA!!!
The World Only God Knows ep 7
Legendary Heroes ep 18-19
Overall: Not too much happened in these episodes that I care about.
Pokemon ep 1-2
Overall: I'm watching this with my bf while working out. I've seen these first 2 episodes about 20 times already XD
Char's Counterattack Movie - Char on a horse. Ray jumps on char on a horse. They fist fight! Quess is one interesting girl. I mean she just went into space without a suit on to jump into Char's arms! Oh that lady killer! Twas a good time 7/10.
Giant Robo ep 1-4
Overall: Big Fire is interesting. I also watched this dubbed. I'm not sure why but it wasn't hard on the ears at all and was rather fun that way at times. I can't imagine eating with my feet let alone while drunk. That's some interesting talent right there. I rather love the Chinese chick. She is pure adorable and her powers are quite interesting. I liked the back story of the professor battle long ago. Robo himself is pretty awesome. He has so many facial expressions even if it is the same one all the time. All you gotta do it add some water hehe.
Giant Robo ep 5-7
Overall: Words can't describe how awesome this show is 9/10.
Giant Robo Specials ep 1-3
Overall: I've seen shows play parody of themselves a lot but this one takes the cake. It was so bad it was good. There ended up being a lot of fan-service which I found to be a little awkward since there is only one chick in the show. "Do you like my song?" was said once during some part. Made me instantly think of silly Macross 7. When you have a giant robot that looks like you (being a girl) the only logical place to have rocket launchers to come out of is your boobs correct? I really, REALLY could have done without seeing all the men wearing Chinese dresses. 29, divorced, with child. Those words shall be the best from these specials.
Sora no Otoshimono 2 ep 8
Fortune Arterial ep 7
Overall: Sora was awesome like always. FA was crap like always.
Gundam 00 S2 ep 1-2
Overall: Kind of fun seeing everyone slightly more grown up and how things have changed or haven't. I love series that do this. I hate how most just have everyone eternally young and never chance their looks. The OP an ED are good but don't really fit with the Gundam theme. The new enemy makes me think of Last Exile and Dio. Sumeragi has started drinking a whole lot more and she really reminds me of Misato from Evangelion while doing it. Getting a little weirded out at how much I can compare 00 to Evangelion.
MoO episodes 4-8
Panty ep 8
Index II ep 7
Togainu no Chi ep 7
Hime Chen ep 32
Overall: Not much to say. I rather enjoyed Hime Chen's skull dresses and MoO is still very @.@ Panty music in the show must be the best thing about it since I notice it more and more with each episode I watch.
Hakuouki ep 18
Overall: Silver bullets of course! "The way of the oni." for some reason that line really made me laugh. Even though I know it probably shouldn't have. I was touched by the scene where the 2 men who didn't overly like each other sit under a tree after the battle that they just fought together. One silently slips away. If there's one thing that this show does well it's all the awesome blood everywhere in battles. Delicious.
Gundam 00 S2 ep 3-6
Overall: Innovators are interesting. I really, REALLY do not like that there is a little bit of story after the ED. Like why on earth do creators have to do that? At least I have scene skip on here. The war and country factors are starting to greatly effect my emotions. It relates too much to real life for me somehow. War has never been an easy subject for me to watch. I'm like really super duper mad at Saji. His actions are just so frustrating. So far I do not trust the new Lockon. Something just seems off. But that could just be his personality.
Nurarihyon no Mago ep 20
Yumeiro Patissiere Professional ep 8
Gundam 00 S2 ep 7-10
Overall: Watched a lot of awesome recap of people's pasts these few episodes. I was not impressed with the 2 "men" dancing together at the ball. Shit just went all to hell for THAT country.
Gundam 00 S2 ep 11-17
Overall: It's hilarious wrong how they always say full names to each other. I'm not too sure how many more times I can handle Setsuna saying "Saji Crossroad" I do not understand why they have to do this... I'm so annoyed that they keep blaming the Gundams for her parents death when it was the bad ones that did it >.< Like why won't they just tell her that. Or him so he can tell her. Seriously! "If I fight, people will be hurt!" I hate you Saji. Like so much! "You got bad taste." lol what Setsuna? That didn't even make sense. "So we follow the chain of command." Wise words spoken from a wise man.
I started writing a story many years ago, way before Gundam 00 was thought up anyway. And I gotta say Setsuna is just like my main character and if I ever let anyone read it now people that have seen 00 would totally think I made my character from Setsuna's character. Just random and I think adds to why I really am enjoying Gundam 00 even though S2 is clearly not as awesome as S1. The masked man is just crazy at this point. "I apologize for your death!" Seriously masked man? He still can't pilot a suit without bleeding from his mouth too XD You would think that all his training by now would have fixed that issue of his. "Are you breaking us up?" Can he say anymore ridiculous things???
Another one of those evil beams in space were made and this time it was shot at the tower. It begins to fall and everyone unites for a time to save as many lives as possible. The time I had been waiting for had arrived. I cried. I cried a lot. Congratulations Gundam 00 for being the 6th anime to ever make me cry.
Gundam 00 S2 ep 18-end
Overall: Maybe it's just me here (I know it totally is just me) but Ribbons reminds me of CC. It might be the hair. It could be the attitude. I'm still not really sure. "This man was also distorted by us." I really love all these one liners that Setsuna blurts out. They make me think a lot for some reason. I call the place where people are naked and have heart to heart chats "Particle land". This place is creepy to me and I don't like it at all. Why can't they just talk normally still inside their Gundams? All and all everything gets "resolved" the best it can. Things still are all out of place but I think people at this point are sick of fighting and will be willing to work at peace. I really can't wait to watch the movie coming out some time in December for us Westerners. ^__^ Only one more Gundam show to go before I have completed all Gundam titles! Gundam Seed here I come!
Pokemon ep 3
Overall: More workout time. 2 Pokemon caught!
Ironman ep 8
Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru ep 7
MM ep 8
Overall: All I can say here is kinda boring and Ironman? Did you really need to insert a random little brat? >.<
Star Driver ep 8
Overall: That was one of the longest panting scenes I have ever seen! 40 seconds! It was up there with Isamu's from Macross Plus!
Milky ep 7
Imouto ep 8
Psychic ep 7
Bakuman ep 8
Zakuro ep 8
Overall: Lots of interesting in the above titles but nothing worth going into detail about. But I gotta say that Detective Psychic and the molester lady is just @.@ the next episode shall be interesting... 😐
Astro Fighter Sunred ep "48"
Overall: The scissor man and the random squirrel really made me laugh for no reason. I mean honestly where did he get that huge nut. Sundred takes on a funny new baddie that probably wrote KILL YOU! on his door. Vamp gets together a bunch of monsters that end up putting garbage bags over their heads and start cheerleading Sunred on. *kiss me* XD I can't believe how a 10 minute episode can have me in tears of laughter.
Robot Wars ep 8
Overall: Lots and lots of pew pew this episode. And some boobs too.
Omae Umasou da na ep 1-20
Overall: Re-watched because I love DINOSAURS! Short and sweet. You should watch it too!
Amagami SS ep 17-20
Overall: For a "fat" girl she sure isn't very fat... Urg at this show...
November 23rd - November 29th
Hades Project Zeorymer OVA - Man and woman can pilot the Zeorymer together. I had been looking forward to this OVA for quite some time and it didn't disapoint my wait. It does leave a little something to be desired at the end of it all though. Overall it is fun 8/10.
Wednesday - Sunday:
I didn't watch anything............ ._.
Monster ep 1-3
Here we go with impressions of fall anime batch 2. Check out Batch 1 if you didn't see it. 50/50 for love and hate in this post.
* Means I approve and look forward to watching each week.
Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls
When I watched the preview for this show a good month before airing I was intrigued but not overly impressed. The only thing that REALLY stood out about it was the unique and interesting way they did the censoring. Black splotches strewn about everywhere not only over the naughty bits but a common theme in the show it's self. I'm not too sure where it's going yet but it's fun to watch.
*Otome Yokai Zakuro
Super cute girls with animal ears and hot bishie men in military uniforms! Oh YES! I'm not sure about the story so far and can't wait to learn more. Jjust looking at the show is good enough for me right now.
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
Ummmm. Ok well we got fun animation I suppose if you try not to think of Powerpuff Girls or Invader Zim. Mix in some really crude odd humour and this show is not for me. Generally I laugh at this stuff but I just can't get into it at all. This show seems to be love/hate with everyone this season. I'm kind of in the middle but more on the hate side of things.
Takuto is the legendary Galactic Pretty Boy! Can I just say... AWESOME! All I can say about this right now is it feels greatly like a parody of many mecha anime out there. The main ones I feel they are doing is: G Gundam, TTGL, and Code Geass. This aspect makes it pretty fun to watch for me and I enjoy that girls singing even if I'm generally not huge on singing in anime. I suppose that may be a Macross shout out too. 😛
Yosuga no Sora
No. I hate it. I don't care if people see the twins making out in their minds either. Just NO!
The World God only Knows / Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai
Apparently real life girls are just like VN girls..... Yeah... no.... I will admit that the demon girl is cute though.
