Review of 2012 Anime Part 2 ~Spring~

Like every year Spring gave us more anime we knew what to do with! Unlike winter I actually watched everything as it aired. Save for those kiddy shows that I'm not following being Bakugan, Inazuma Eleven, Jewelpet, and Metal Fight Beyblade. Saint Seiya had another season but since I haven't seen any of that franchise to begin with that wasn't watched either. A season 2 of Pretty Rhythm aired but since season 1 isn't even finished being subbed that wasn't watched. When subs appear I'll watch it for sure since I'm enjoying season 1 of it alright.

Still looks cute...

Some short anime called Koi-ken aired but I haven't even seen raws for this appear. I'm ok with that since it apparently is based on a popular dating sim which I'm so not all about. Space Battleship Yamato 2199 looks interesting but I'd prefer to watch the first stuff for that before jumping into something new. Ozma I didn't watch because I want to do some fun stuff with the Leijiverse stuff eventually.

There was actually very few shows that I didn't enjoy watching this time around. The amount of great shows to choose from was just that good! Even the shitty shows had a few good things to offer so I can't complain about them too much either. I still wish more people would watch Gon...

2 brothers aim for space because of this.

Best Show of spring is SO hard to choose but I'm going to go with Space Brothers for sure. Honestly if it wasn't for that cat anime I'm blogging it surely would have been #1 of 2012! SPACE!!! Polar Bear Cafe is a super close second for spring too.

Worst Show of spring is Natsuiro Kiseki because while it had an interesting enough idea, cute girls doing stuff just doesn't do it for me in a drama setting.

*snorts*

  39. Shiba Inuko-san 3/10
  40. Natsuiro Kiseki 2/10

<3

Surprise enjoyment: Ginga e Kickoff!! is a children's soccer show that should be watched by everyone! Mysterious Girlfriend X is a romance anime that I had no hopes for going in but ended up being one of the best romantic anime I've ever seen. Acchi Kocchi had great winter episodes which surprised me.

Surprise fail: Medaka Box ended up being quite lacking... I'll have more to say about it in the fall review.

Honorable mentions: Arashi no Yoru ni I'd like to see more of honestly. Lupin III ~Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna BOOBS! AKB0048 is fun but still lacking in awesomeness for me but at least there's a lot of SPACE! Shining Hearts has one of the most hilarious ED's ever! Eureka Seven Ao is finished finished now right?

Super Milestone Post 1000 After 3 Years

Yup I'm 3 years old now.

Written 1000 posts... Yeah I know most of my posts are small shitty ones.

Almost reached 2000 comments... Will YOU be the lucky one?

Made it through 300 school uniforms... 66 more to go.

I'm sure there's a few other stats I could tell you but I'm lazy and don't want to do that kind of work. I think it's interesting that all these milestones are happening at pretty much the SAME TIME. So weird... I don't really have much else to say on this matter so I'll use the rest of this post to blabber on about my future ideas on what direction I'll be going towards bloggy wise.

School Uniforms:

Honestly this was a dumb idea... In my mind I had a great plan for this but like most of my ideas when I actually put it out there it sucks. At least the characters one was a hit! But maybe that's cause I was "new" to blogging too... I don't blame anyone for not giving a crap about these posts (except for GLO (who has taken shinmaru's spot being the #1 commenter here) because he's awesome and wants to sex uniforms) because honestly neither do I and it totally shows... I haven't decided if I'm going to keep going with this project after this year is done but we'll jump over that idea when 2014 comes rolling along since I'm taking 2013 off! I wonder what 365 anime things I could look at next time? If there will be a next time!

By the way if there are any school uniforms that I haven't done yet that you'd like to see me "cover" now is the time to tell me! There's only 66 left! If you are a blogger yourself and wish to write a post on a uniform that I haven't done yet do contact me! I'm totally opened to guest posts!

SPACE Poyo makes me so happy~

List of episodic stuff that will keep going "strong":

  • Poyopoyo - I WAS up to date but when I realized I was reaching post #1000 I put it on the back burner again so this post could take the honourable spot. No anime makes me quite as happy as Poyo does for my anime cat needs. POYO FOREVER!
  • Gakkatsu - I like thinking and talking about the strange questions that this show asks for some reason. It is also great that the subber for this show is as slow as I am when it comes to releases! <3 you 8C!
  • Chibi Devi! - In the new year I plan on catching up with this show. I think I'll pick a month and try to do a post a day for it or something... How is it still going...? I like it alright but seriously now why?
  • High Score - So short I have to finish it or I fail some kind of blogging thing I'm sure...
  • Gon - I slacked on this one but I'm determined to give the little dinosaur some love. I'll be doing some manga posts for it too since I have acquired volumes 1-5!
  • Wooser - Random and fun! (kinda hope it only goes on for a season though)

HEY JERK! WHAT ABOUT TORIKO! >.<

I don't want to make any more silly promises anymore when it comes to Toriko. I DO want to do something more with it blogging wise still but I'm really slow when it comes to keeping up with a 20 minute show blogging episodically apparently. Being so far behind on it doesn't help matters either. I do have a plan in place for some one off Toriko posts but I don't know when I'll get to it yet.

Pokemon! Workout workout workout!

Super fun projects that chii loves to bits:

  • Cooking With Oishii Anime - I plan on picking up the pace for these posts. I wanna get one out at least once a month. I wanted once a week but seriously now it's me we're talking about here. I'll have a yummy soup or 2 for you in the next few weeks and a muffin is planned for next week! Look forward to it!
  • Anime Snack of the Week - This will re-start next year when I'm done those pesky uniform posts. I'll try harder to actually get one out each week too...
  • Pokemon Workout - HOLY SHIT GUYS! After exactly 2 years I'm bringing this back! Post coming next week! SERIOUSLY!

Video Games:

So I've been tossing this idea around for a while since Digibro suggested I start reviewing or talking about them on here or whatever. Video games are another interest of mine so ehhh why not! Especially if a few people will actually take some interest. I for sure plan on covering the following franchises in "chii depth" at some point. I'm totally welcome to suggestions too!

  • Final Fantasy
  • Resident Evil
  • Dark Cloud
  • Zelda
  • Silent Hill
  • Dynasty Warriors and Friends
  • Heroes of Might and Magic
  • Assassin's Creed
  • Mass Effect
  • Lego Games
  • THAT Games
  • Mario Stuff
  • Games that have anime (Valkyria Chronicles, Star Ocean, Devil May Cry, Persona, Ys, Disgaea, Pokemon, Hakuouki, .hack, Tales of... and so on)
  • And of course a bunch of one title games that I don't care to list right now

December Madness:

  • 12 Days of Christmas - Always super fun to write these and read everyone's too! Posts start December 14-25
  • Not so Secret Santa - 7 lucky people were chosen at random yet again this year! Was it you? Reviews posted December 19-25
  • Reverse Thieves Secret Santa - Hopefully I'll get 3 I haven't seen this time. Reviews posted December 23-25
  • Anime-Planet's Secret Santa - Why not have one more anime to watch?! Review posted December 25 MAYBE!
  • 2012 Anime - 4 posts of all anime that aired this year. Posts start December 28-31

Maybe I should do MAL's Secret Santa too but have that person give me a hentai! looooooooool

So umm yeah! Wooo 3 years and here's to still being around and doing stuff. Frequency of posting still may vary since my wrist issue has never really gone away and I don't think it'll ever go fully away at this point. Also since I plan on doing all this awesome stuff the blog might get a makeover sometime soon. Haven't fully decided what will change yet but suggestions are welcome for that too. Do let me know!

Love you guys!~ <3

Gon 01

 

Normally something like this is a warning to dinosaurs.

Gon's first encounter when he lands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gon flies through the sky one day and makes all the jungle animals his bitch!

Jack and Ussu fight ALL THE TIME!

Gon headbutts Ussu.

Gon makes Ussu his bitch! Jack stares at them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LAND FISH!

Not sure why Gon got into one of the fish... But this way he ends up making Jack his bitch!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This introductory episode, Gon focuses on making Ussu the Bear his bitch because Ussu asked for it! After Gon succeeds in doing this he turns his attention to Jack the Wolf because he's always fighting with Ussu to be king of the jungle. So Gon not only makes Ussu his bitch, he also makes Jack his bitch too! Why? Because dinosaurs are the TRUE king of the jungle that's WHY!!!

I enjoyed that Gon got INSIDE a fish to finish off Jack. It made no sense but it was highly amusing.

Don't piss off the little tough guy!

Let's eat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the end all Gon really wants to do with everyone is eat and sleep. All that bitch making just sorta happens when he shows up because Gon is a kick ass dinosaur and all must bow to DINOSAURS! Eating is what Gon loves to do the most and I can see why. All that running around he ends up doing takes a lot of energy that his little body surely needs and what better way to keep his stamina up than to nomnom ALL THE TIME! Getting the right amount of sleep helps with this too I'm sure. Maybe that's why I sleep so much too...

Everyone's pretty buddy buddy after a good fish meal together.

I really enjoyed this first episode even if hardly anything happened. Watching Gon and all the other jungle animals bounce around doing their thing was quite entertaining. It has a nice clean too to it too since it's CG. The OP for Gon is darn catchy too. I mean it's CLEARLY made for children and all but I still love it to bits. The ED is pretty cute too as it has all those animals in the background as Gon walks on like they do in a lot of other anime ED themes... I suppose that could be a post on its own too, but I'm sure someone else has already said a thing or 2 about this phenomenon.

Apparently no one in the manga talks. (I can't wait to get my hands on this manga btw) But they made it so only Gon doesn't talk in the anime but all the other animals do. I like that they made them talk because while yes Gon is still very much a kiddy show it doesn't feel THAT kiddy because of the talking... Maybe that's just me though and my biased opinions. Manga is easier to get away with no talking than anime in my opinion since it adds an atmosphere that is unique to manga.
