Review of 2012 Anime Part 4 ~Fall~

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!

Sorry Hiro!

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.

Their lives will forever be changed.

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.

BARF!

  1. Shin Sekai Yori / From the New World (still airing) 10/10

  30. Seitokai no Ichizon 2 2/10
  31. Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo 2/10
TANKS!!

TANKS!!

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.

366 Days of Anime School Uniforms: Day 94/366 Seitokai no Ichizon

Day 94/366

Seitokai no Ichizon takes place in one room in one school.

Now know how I like matching uniforms right? Yeah those are awesome. But when the boy pants are plaid like the girl skirts? NO WAY. Just no... I dunno who thinks plaid pants look good unless in some ironic kind of way. Having to wear plaid pants to school everyday... I feel sorry for the boys. Hell even if girls had to wear the pants I'd be sad too. I like red plaid in the skirt very much though. Especially since there's a lace lining that shines through a slit with a ribbon criss crossing down to form a bow at the bottom. This looks even more lovely since the girl bow tie on the black jacket looks the same. At least for some of the girls. Some choose to wear a huge floppy bow tie that just doesn't look that appealing with the rest of the outfit in my opinion.

Overall: I like it but I don't think it fits my style at all.

chii’s Does Not Want List

So since I did a favourite anime of all time list I decided to do a list of anime that just didn't do it for me. Like the favourites, making this list has some requirements. It had to have pissed me off a lot and be bad according to my tastes. I generally let a lot of bad things slide by without much thought so these anime ended up leaving a nasty enough impression on me that just made me not able to forget. I have absolutely NO desire to re-watch any of these shows and I generally can't stand the attention they get from most anime fans. Some are failed potential that betrayed my feelings so much that I just can't let it go and some are sequels that completely let me down.

Filling done by narumi (blue monday)

If one of your favourite anime happens to be on this list do not bother leaving flame comments. It will be deleted. Take note that everyone in this world is completely different and so their tastes are different as well. Some people are more compatible than others. If one anime happens to be a masterpiece for someone could be another's poison. These happen to be my poisons! Like my Favourites List I'll update this one when something decides to be a terrible anime that just has to make the list.

Review of 2009 Anime Part 4 ~Fall~

Fall is another big group of airing anime and most are still going onto the new year, so most anime are just being judged on half of the shows total episodes for fall but sometimes that's enough. Some sequels were aired from earlier shows in the 2009 year. The only one I didn't get around to was Darker than Black: Ryuusei no Gemini. I just didn't have time in this busy year to catch up watching the season 1 of it. I will be watching it in the new year and looking forward to the OVA coming out around spring 2010 or so. I've heard magnificent things about the show so I hope I will not be disappointed.

Other than DtB the only shows I didn't watch were ones I couldn't get or well Battle Spirits: Shounen Gekiha Da... do you really blame me for not watching that? 😛 Gokyoudai Monogatari has no subs that I'm aware of but I don't think I'm missing much there. Shugo Chara Party! is another sequel that I have yet to watch as the other 2 two long magical girl series that come before it have yet to be viewed by me. It'll wait till later. Anyamaru Tantei Kiruminzuu is a show about girls that magically turn into animals because they found some strange device in the attic. Sounds cool but it's kinda weird at the same time. With only 3 episodes out though, I have dropped this series and put my energy into all the other shows for the fall season. Maybe someday I'll get back to it if anyone picks it up and finishes subbing it.

Fairy Tail is likely to be the next really long airing series. Being a Weekly Shōnen Magazine manga it's sure to go on for quite some time. It hasn't won me over yet but then again I've only seen 10 episodes out of who knows how many there will be. I do like seeing Plu again. XD wooo Rave Master hahaha. Earlier on in the year I heard that Inuyasha: The Final Act was actually going to air. So I thought what perfect time to finally watch this show that so many fans complained about never ending. It was a long 167 episodes and 4 movies to get to the finale but I'm glad I finally watched this show that is loved by so many fans out there. Lame and annoying at times sure, but there is great action and the plot is rather good.

No Longer Human

Run, Melos!








Best Show of fall for me so far is Aoi Bungaku Series. This series is made up of six classics of Japanese literature: No Longer Human (is getting a movie which makes me happy as this story really messed with my head 5/5 alone for this one), Run, Melos! (which is a updated version as there is another older Run Melos! movie. Very interesting twist), Kokoro (very thought provoking), Hell Screen (very thought provoking as well), The Spider's Thread (strange), In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom (a weird love story) I highly suggest checking this out if you like shows that tell many stories in one. More details on the synopses here.

In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom

Kokoro








Worst show of fall for me I know for sure is Kampfer. There's just no way anything else that is still airing will be able to screw up as much as this show did. I seriously should have dropped this show and saved my eyes and brain the headache each week but I just didn't. (stupid goal) At least shows like this are easier to get through when they are current airing. Forget trying to marathon this crap. I'll watch Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo again gladly before I touch Kampfer.

Yeah... what ARE they doing???

  1. Aoi Bungaku Series 8/10

  28. Kiddy Girl-and (still airing) 2/10
  29. Seitokai no Ichizon 2/10
  30. Kampfer 1/10

Cats are awesome

Surprise enjoyments: Nyan Koi! Put cat's in anything and I'm sure to like it. It helps that the characters were good too. For a harem/comedy being unique is a good thing. White Album 2nd Season. I hated season 1 of this anime A LOT but it really upped it's game more in season 2. It still isn't the best thing ever but for having such a shitty first season it was a surprise that it got me interested enough to care what happened at the end. (still pretty lame though)

Surprise fails: Sacred Blacksmith. The first episode was alright enough but after that it really just was a sword chick with big boobs with her other sword buddies doing some boring stuff. Kiddy Girl-and. I can't really say how much I'm disappointed with this show. I know it isn't suppose to follow the other series at all but I at least expected some awesome aspects from it. So far all we've gotten is ridiculous fan-service... It's kind of how I feel about To Aru Kagaku no Railgun but at least that show still entertains me.

Guilty pleasures: Sora no Otoshimono. Flying pantsu!!! The parody's were very hilarious, I laughed at every episode. Miracle Train. Bishies on a train that try to help women in trouble. Yeah it's silly but I watched every episode with a smile on my face. I kinda hope they make more. XD

She is one crazy awesome lady

Honorable mentions: Armed Librarians: Book of Bantorra. I went in not knowing a thing about it and expected a boring tale about books. I got something way more awesome than that. I can't wait to see what comes next. Winter Sonata. Is a hidden treasure hiding behind the oh so popular Kimi ni Todoke. It is Korean made but a romance/drama that has my interest even if it's a little slow. I wish more episodes would come out.
