Fall is just finishing up at this point. Battle Spirits and a few other kiddy shows weren't watched. I didn't touch the latest season of To Love-Ru due to not having seen any of the rest. I decided NOT to touch Little Busters and Hidamari Sketch to save myself some sanity. I knew I wouldn't enjoy these so why keep going with something I know I'll hate! CHII IS LEARNING!
Gintama started up again but we only got a few new episodes to sink out teeth into. They were great episodes too! I wish we got more but we will be getting some come January sometime so at least there's that to look forward to. I find it interesting that they are airing re-runs in the meantime! Initial D Fifth Stage started and it is as good as ever. So nice to see more of this show being animated! A few other specials were aired but have stalled so I won't bother talking about them too much since they didn't leave an impression on me. A show that looked cute Haitai Nanafa aired but never got any subs along with another cute one by the name of Picchipichi. I will watch these if they ever surface.
Best Show of fall is Shin Sekai Yori hands down. I can't wait for more! I'd make the top anime Chiisan Oji-san but that's a pretty short show that no one else has heard of anyway. Check it out, it is about a little old man!
Worst Show of fall is Seitokai no Ichizon 2. Yup it still sucks. But it feels like a cop-out making it the worst show of fall since no one watched it. So I'll make Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo the "winner" for the title.

- Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo 2/10
Surprise enjoyment: Busou Shinki was a lovely surprise since it's ova kinda sucked. Btooom started off kinda lame but got better then the ending happened... I'd still say that I enjoyed the show overall though. Girls und Panzer TANKS! That's about it... Wooser no Sono Higurashi I ended up liking a whole lot more than I though I would. Probably because I blogged it. I didn't get a lot of what was going on but that's ok because it was pure randomness!
Surprise fail: Code:Breaker kinda took me by surprise by how much it sucked bawls. Robotics;Notes has let me down but it's not really too much of a surprise. I can't decide if I like or hate the otaku chick...
Honorable mentions: Suki-tte Ii na yo. actually turned out to be a pretty decent show after the first few episodes but still pretty forgettable too. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo keeps on being entertaining. I'm not sure how it keeps happening! Medaka Box 2 as the same score as season 1 but I enjoyed this season slightly more than the first one. I kinda hope we get more of it. Zetsuen no Tempest has a lot of talking but it just happens to be the kind of talking I like a lot. Can't wait to see where this one goes.
On the Fourth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Four Video Game Feels,
Three Idol Shows,
Two Amazing Cartoons,
and The Best Boots in All of Anime
Putting down my WiiU/PS3/PSP/DS for a second to write this post! Yup I love gaming just as much as I do anime. This year we oddly had a lot of anime that touched on the gaming world which was pretty darn awesome.
Ixion Saga: Dimension Transfer
One moment you are sitting in your room playing one of your favourite games... The next moment you are falling through the sky in your chair and land on top of some dudes you were looking at while playing your video game! Yup another trapped inside a video game anime! This show gives me super happy feels. It is completely absurd at times and my day 1 post is a great example of that. I can't really tell people to go and watch this but if you are up for a laugh or a hundred you should probably check it out.
It's hard to say what I liked about this show because the first half of it was quite boring indeed. Especially those first few episodes. I really almost dropped it because of those. Something about these characters will draw you in though. Who would have thought that school kids playing a video game inside and outside of school would end up so interesting to me.
Instead of being trapped inside the game, Btooom transports the trap into real life. People get transported to an island and must fight the same ways they would if they were playing Btooom online. This is kinda most comparable to Battle Royal honestly and when it isn't focusing on the main girls issues the show is actually really enjoyable.
Sword Art Online
This show gets a lot of hate but I personally really enjoy this show. Sure it has a few dumb... ok really dumb moments here and there and the 2nd arc hasn't been as interesting as the first but it's been a really fun ride all the way through and the 2 main characters are COMPLETELY ADORABLE. So there.
Of all these I'd probably want to play Sword Art Online the most... Driland too of course!
While this is technically not taking place in a video game or based on one the feel is SUPER video gamey because you have chibi little people in a medieval setting dungeon crawling and kicking ass. I love this show even though it's kinda meh to sit through the episodes. I just like the feel it gives me!
There was a .hack movie that came out too but I don't have much to say about it. It was alright.
Btooom real life video game island!
Green is the colour of choice for both uniforms here. The girl above likes to be slightly different and use the camouflage print for her skirt instead of the plaid. Same goes for her tie that has a cute little skull added.
More green in the uniforms below. Don't really have much to say about these except that the striped tie is interesting that both genders wear.
Overall: Ok I guess.
