Tuesday Tally Week 2-4 Oi! January 11-31

So yeah the goal was to do this every week no matter what... BUT of course things just get in the way now and then and it was impossible for me to do for 3 weeks... The good news is that I didn't overly watch a lot of anime in those 3 weeks. Uncharacteristic like for me but real life just stepped in for the month and everything was pushed back anime blog wise. Although the title mark in this post looks huge it was mostly just small ova's and movies. I've gotten back into my anime mood over the last few days so I think things are back to normal!

^________^

January 11-16

Trigun Movie re-watch x2

Overall: I actually watched it 3 times total now since it came out. I find it very fun to watch and my second viewing was with other bloggers over Skype. Interesting to see others reactions to it. Too bad I had to leave half way through the viewing.

Gintama episodes 62-86

Overall: Episode 79 with the toilet paper crisis is probably my favourite episode of Gintama of all. It just makes me laugh a hell of a lot! It is also time since I've reached episode 86 that I am not re-watching episodes anymore and from now on every Gintama episode will be new to me.

Starry Sky episode 4

Overall: These voices don't match these douches at all. I can't stand it. I'm considering dropping it at this point.

Kamichu episodes 1-5

Overall: Kamichu is the first title I decided to watch that I haven't seen yet from digitalboy's top 100 list. It has a very slow start so I'm afraid that I won't end up enjoying it as much as I had hoped. 4 20:22

Well I suppose this didn't need to be added to Final Fantasy o.o

Final Fantasy Legend Of The Crystals OVA

Overall: Each episode takes a look at one of the 4 crystals. I can't say it adds anything to Final Fantasy in general but it was a fun watch. ep 2 7:00

Gintama episodes 87-88

Wandering Son, Kimi ni Todoke, and Fractale episode 1 was watched. Thoughts on these are here. I watched 7 episode 2's for some of the current airing anime too, but nothing worth mentioning since I can't really remember anything from them and didn't take proper notes.

Love Stalking *click to read*

Finished the Manga Love Stalking

Overall: This is a short smutty manga where each chapter (there's 4) follows a girl and her strange love life at the time. I enjoyed the sexy parts and only one of the stories so this gets a 5/10. The title doesn't make much sense either since only one of the stories involved stalking...

What a pro eroge VA

The high school girl not so much... YET!








January 17-25

Koe de Oshigoto! re-watch

Overall: This is one funny ova about a high school girl who decides to learn how to become an eroge voice actress.

Gundam Seed episodes 20-25

Level E episode 2

Overall: I'm suppose to be episodically blogging this series but... Yeah... I'll do a batch episode release this week hopefully and get back on track. Simply loving this series though!

Gintama episodes 89-90

Your Color *click to read*

Finished the Manga Your Color

Overall: Really short yuri manga that doesn't really go anywhere 5/10.

Ikenai Candy Love *click to read*

Finished the Manga Koi wa Tenka no Mawarimono - Ikenai Candy Love

Overall: Meet a really shy quiet working girl who is about to loose her job. She happens to see a higher up getting a blow job in the alley way and things start to pick up for her from that point on. This manga actually has 4 other stories in it (I think) but only this one has been translated. I shall be eagerly awaiting the others in hopes that they were as good as this one was! 9/10 easily.

Naughty Honey *click to read*

Finished the Manga Naughty Honey

Overall: 6/10 I don't have much else to say about it honestly...

Girlfriend *click to read*

Finished the Manga Girlfriend

Overall: Another compilation manga showing off girls and their loves. Some are good most are rather meh. 2 of them actually ended up intertwining story wise which I found to be most interesting. I feel that my 7/10 is generous but I did enjoy the ones I found that were good very much.

January 26-27

Andersen Douwa - Ningyo Hime Movie

Overall: Lets just say that this does not have a Disney's happy ending. Pretty good watch even though I viewed it over youtube.

Zenryoku Usagi episode 39

Twelve Months Movie

Overall: I had heard great things about this movie from a friend and it didn't disappoint! It was a fun story about a Cinderella type girl who was used and abused by her adoptive mother and sister. Sent out on new years eve to gather a basket full of flowers for the spoiled rotten Queen that is no older than a girl because she offered a basked full of gold coins. The poor freezing girl luckily ends up meeting some mysterious men who happen to represent the 12 months of the year! Since this girl is so kind they help her out with the gathering of these flowers due to their magical powers. Also viewed over youtube.

Gag Manga Biyori Jump Festa

Tell me what YOU see here

Yumeiro Patissiere OVA

Overall: This was one strange little ova since it made me think of perverted things when it totally shouldn't have. The rest of the series wasn't like that so why do it in the OVA?!

Cool Cool Bye OVA

Suteneko Tora-chan Movie

Overall: This adorable cat themed 1947 movie short is great. It's like a cat opera which I found most amusing.

Noel's Fantastic Trip Movie

Overall: The name says it all in this case. You really do feel like you should be tripping over some drug to find it enjoyable. With it's pretty bad looks and terrible singing I recommend passing this one up for sure.

Just one of the glasses girls in Megane na Kanojo

January 28

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Parallel Works

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Superman Legend OVA

Overall: Random last minute pick for my Snack of the Week.

Megane na Kanojo OVA

Overall: Each episode follows a girl who wears glasses. It's short and sweet. It definitely could do with more stories as these ones were fun.

Yuri Seijin Naoko-san OVA

Overall: Meet an alien girl who is obsessed with human little girls. Yup this one is for the yuri loving lolicons out there.

Aki Sora: Yume no Naka OVA

Overall: Watch this as a soft core hentai only. Do not expect a mind blowing plot.

Crimson Wolf OVA

Overall: This ova ended up being really awesome. I mean it wasn't anything special but it certainly did what it set out to do. The poor girl that was in this almost never wore any clothing. She was either in the shower being attacked or clothing was being ripped off. Not to mention the numerous times she wore just a man's shirt. Hell she was even naked in flashbacks!

Black Lagoon OVA episode 3

Overall: The action certainly was more pleasing from the lack of it in episode 2. My Chang got pretty sassy with Rock over the phone which I found to be most amusing. The head maid that the little master has been trying to find shows an interesting side that he just isn't ready to deal with. I honestly was a little shocked by her actions too.

Gintama episodes 91-94

Off to the God world for the first time

Our little Gods best friends

Cat Fight Club!








January 29

Kamichu episodes 6-16

Overall: With the super slow start I complained about earlier in the month I was rewarded when episode 8 came around. It revolved around a cat world fight club parody. It was the most interesting cute thing I had seen in quite some time. Especially since the leader cat was appropriately called Tyler. From that episode onward the time flew by and before I knew it, it was over. I was rewarded with a great ending that I really loved and won me over completely for the show. Someday I'll have to give it a proper blog post but for now this will do. I see why it is on digitalboy's top 100 list and I approve ^_^

Shin Koihime Musou OVA and Live

Overall: Yet another fun filled ova enters this franchise. It wasn't anything special but it was still fun. What was really odd was the Live. It was some of the girls singing tracks from the anime in a concert setting. Quite bizarre honestly.

Abunai Sisters episodes 1-2 ongoing? OVA

Overall: w...t....f...

Bungaku Shoujo Memoire OVA

Overall: After watching the movie with some skepticism on my part and ended up enjoying it I certainly looked forward to this ova. Each episode can be watched as a stand alone but none really left an impression on me except for the 2nd one. It was really depressing and heavy on the drama.

Prefectural Earth Defense Force OVA

Overall: This is a delightful parody anime where people get turned into cyborgs and they must fight the evil Telegraph Pole Society. With a description like that what's not to like!

Riki punches hard

So hard that...

...He's jaw "fell" off!









January 30

Riki-Oh OVA

Overall: I first watched the live action movie with my boyfriend several years ago. It was bad but so bad in the way that it was great entertainment. I expected pretty much the same from the ova and that's what I got. I really wish that ova 2 was available somewhere.

Mirai Nikki OVA

Overall: This seems like a Death Note but slightly less serious as it has turned into a game of sorts among kids. If it ever turns into a series it could be interesting but I won't have high hopes for it as this ova was pretty average.

Prism Mergical: Prism Generations OVA

Overall: Well... The only thing I can say about this magical girl show is that it was only 15 minutes of my life... I did enjoy seeing a magical boy though.

Quiz Magic Academy OVA 2

Overall: I never actually thought a second ova would come out of this considering that it's first one was rather mediocre. Sadly the mediocrity didn't leave and I was still left wondering why it was made. Not a terrible watch by any means though. Think of it along the lines of Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu.

Tall and short! Cute ^_^

Hiyokoi OVA

Overall: Is an ova about a really shy short girl that gets seated beside a really tall loud boy. It's short and rather cute. I'd watch the series of this if they ever made one. It could rival Toradora in my opinion.

Gintama episodes 95-99

Overall: The Shinsengumi arc is super duper awesome. It rivals the more serious Naruto and Bleach ones for sure!

Wild 7 OVA

Overall: This was my pick for the Chii & Kira Anime Watching Club. I haven't finished my review of it yet but lets just say it's completely opposite of what Kira thought about it. Check out her review while you wait for mine!

Koi Suru Boukun OVA

Overall: I hated this yaoi ova with a passion. It takes a lot for me to hate on a yaoi generally but this one was just downright bad. I'll take less rape in my boy love shows thank you very much. This show should probably go on my does not want list. >.<

Dragon's Heaven sure is ugly...

January 31

Gintama episodes 100-105

Licca-chan Fushigi na Mahou no Ring OVA

Dragon's Heaven OVA

Overall: Words can't really describe how this ova started off. It was basically a real mecha model just being shown off. Very strange. Once the real ova starts you are graced with what I think is one of the worst looking ova's ever. From what I've seen only California Crisis can rival it's shitty looks. Then again both are pretty shitty story wise too...

Saishuu Shiken Kujira Progressive OVA

Overall: This is actually a 12 episode 5 minute series to begin with. Generally I don't watch the ova's of these kind of shows before actually viewing the show but for some reason I viewed this. It isn't a bad tale of magic sick girl meets a boy and tries to have a normal life for once but it's not something I'm going to remember next year.

365 Days of Anime Characters: Day 150/365 Simon

Day 150/365

Simon

From the anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Simon starts off as a young boy who lost his parents in an earthquake so he decides to become a great digger. One day a man named Kamina comes to Giha Village where Simon lives and works, Kamina then recruits Simon to be part of the "Team Gurren". Simon finds a Core Drill while digging one day that starts up a mecha, which Kamina names the "Lagann". With this new power they go on an adventure to the surface of the world. As years go by, Simon basically turns into a ruler and has to deal with making big decisions while protecting everyone too.

Why I like him: I really enjoyed the relationship he had with Kamina. They really did seem like brothers and sure acted like it too. I like that he grew up during the series, and while he did keep a few timidness to him he grew a nice set of balls and knew how to use them.

Why I hate him: Typical wishy washy moments were rather annoying throughout the show.

Overall: Simon starts off as a  typical cliche boy character with no real will of his own and after meeting Kamina he instantly blooms. TTGL is a great show about growing up and maturing from a boy to a man.
