The Organized Blog Post of Sunday, October 24/29th, 2010
Tagline: “Efficiency — a month of blogging in a single post!”
So Tim commented on this post from over a year ago, which sent me an email alert reminding me of the existence of my blog. From there I wandered into this post. Among all the other amazing posts from a year ago that stemmed from my illustrious genius (sarcasm).
I wish I could return to my prolific blogging habits from my sophomore year. It felt really good to bring out my thoughts, and at the end of the day, it gave me a feeling of having contributed to society — a feeling of general productivity, I suppose, which I can’t attain from games or anime or television.
As I return to this half-completed post, two days ago I got my computer infected with a virus (I knoww! ME, the total computer geek, with a virus?!), and life has generally been sucking. Well, that’s to be expected. Perspective, Ben, perspective. Your life rocks.
I have had no time for anime. And although this Fall 2010 season is a major exception, modern anime has been uninteresting for the most part. And of course the one interesting anime season would happen when I’m at the busiest point in my life. Tsk.
That was my short two-line spiel on anime. I won’t bother going into more detail (no time + no interest). However… anime music lately has been beyond awesome. Faylan’s last vision for last (if you remember, they did the remarkable OP for CANAAN a few seasons ago) is number one here. I was immediately obsessed with the TV-size version; however, upon hearing the full version it didn’t seem that great anymore. It is still a good song, nevertheless. My favorite part is when all the drums, guitars, etc all die out and leave just the piano and her singing. Maybe the animation that accompanied the song in Hyakka Ryouran was the reason for this.
Speaking of opening sequences, the opening of Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai / The World Only God Knows is the best this season. I usually hate english lyriced songs, but everything just fits together so perfectly in that intro sequence. I especially like the logo at the end, where the kanji “kami” (god) does that uhh weird thing (sry for dropping out of ap english o_O).
I also like irony by ClariS, from Ore no Imouto ga Konna Kawaii Wake ga Nai (the anime about Tim and Dorothy’s daily life). I can’t quite put my finger on what I like about the song. It’s cheerful, both in melody and in lyric, and somehow deep (even without trying to interpret the lyrics into native byte-code). I really love the name. It’s not very often that Japanese artists name their songs well (SERIOUSLY. UGH. one of my biggest gripes with asian music.) so it’s nice to see a short, sweet name for this just-as-sweet song. I feel like translating the lyrics for this song (but it’s probably already been done twice overby Words of Songs lol).
eufonius’s new song for Yosuga no Sora is nice, but it’s too similar to all of their previous works (Apocrypha, Mag Mell come to mind, along with the ef songs). They use the same instrumentation on all of their songs, and the same melodic phrases/chord progressions. The original conception was brilliant, but repeating the same formula over and over again wins them no points in my book.
New Fairy Tail songs are okay, but I’m saddened at the removal of Mikuni Shimokawa’s outro song. Sora no Otoshimono‘s opening isn’t as catchy as ring my bell, but I remember it was okay (can’t remember anything about the actual song).
I am very dissappointed in To Aru Majutsu no Index II ‘s music. I was looking forward to an outro song bu IKU more than I was looking forward to the actual anime. I’m saying that seriously. The OP by, whoever it’s by, was nothing special either. I guess I was impressed by the content of the actual anime, though. Since I read the novel, and know what will happen, I’m actually more excited after each cliffhanger/episode.
I know there are many brilliant animes this season, but I am already being crushed by what I have on my watchlist right now, so I will put most of this season off until last year. Yes, that includes Bakuman.
I’m thinking of moving the leafwood.net servers off of my home network. First of all, bandwidth and cpu/disk access from site visitors often hinders my normal computer usage. It’s annoying when suddenly the computer freezes up while I just had a good idea for my english paper, et cetera. Next, I would like to reduce the power consumption of my computer and increase its operating lifetime by not keeping it on overnight or while I am at school. Seriously, my computer is pretty new, and it already feels like it’s five years old. Things are breaking and crashing every other day. Finally, a dedicated server would provide faster access/ping times and high speed bandwidth, which would be nice to have in case we ever need to upload, say, large music files or video files (e.g. for songwriting or moviemaking).
I’m not quite sure how I’d pay for the server usage though. I would ideally want a package at less than ten dollars a year. I don’t need much bandwidth, and PHP and MySQL are pretty much the only server features I need. I wouldn’t even really need SSH access (although it would be nice). Any donation offers? :D
I can’t frick-ing (LOL Frick… sry inside joke) get enough of Touhou music. It started from a random post on an anime blog with a random link to a lame Touhou fan video (it was a parody stand-up comedy thing… very wtf weird). And then I heard the ending song at the end of the video, and it was all downhill from there~
One gripe is that not all Touhou music is equally good. In fact, most songs suck incredibly. But it’s very fun picking out the awesome ones and listening to them on repeat for five hours.
The Touhou characters and the setting of Gensokyo is also extremely compelling. I read one of the mangas, Silent Sinner in Blue in one night. Well, it was short. But I’m amazed at Touhou, and more amazed at Japan and its Touhou fans that have brought the game to such international fame.
I know this post was a bunch of meaningless crap. And I still posted it like four days late. Good thing all anime-containing posts are hidden from the front page o_O
This is… really old… yea, so this is like 3 months of random anime comments. In fact… I guess I’ll title it that.
Mayoi Neko Overrun Episode 05
Chise is so lonely and pitiful. But obviously she’s such a brat. AWESOME! Last episode’s character becomes a main character! =D Chikumaen is an interesting last name, now that I think of it.
Too much crying… sniff sniff. The conclusion was slightly… too fake. And I don’t like how Kaho was the “badguy”. But all in all, a nice episode.
Tears to Tiara Episode 25
Finally got to finishing this. That albino guy uses the Force… no wait, he’s secretly Accelerator in disguise! The albino-ness even matches up! I do like how the anime turns black-and-white as the world is about to end and Heaven is about to be joined with Earth. WTF Taliesin is alive? I really thought he died. Which means… yay for pairing.
Tears to Tiara Episode 26 FINAL
Arawn has his Kamina moment. BELIEVE IN ME WHO BELIEVES IN YOU! YOUR DRILL IS THE ONE THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS! He even says some of the exact same things Kamina says. “WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM!?!?!?”
This boss battle reminds me of Mabi. The whole Celtic mythology thing, plus that huge thing reminds me of Glas. Oh yeah, and everyone, pressure Riannon. Yeah, that’s going to help.
And the Riannon starts pwning anything with that Huge Beam of Light. ROW! ROW! FIGHT THE POWAH!
Then the Pendragon thing, Arthur is made king (omg who would have guessed. =_=). And… nothing really is told of the epilogue. We do have a final Taliesin squishy moment though. Anyways.
What I thought about this anime as a whole? I liked the plot, it was meaningful, especially compared to most anime nowadays. The humor, when it appeared, was average, but it was present when it was needed. One major thing about the high rating I am going to give Tears+Tiara is that there wasn’t a single character I disliked. Yes. This is amazing, but I liked every single character in this anime… including all the villains, and all the minor characters. As expected from a game-adapted anime, I suppose, where the main focus is almost entirely on characters. The character development of everybody but Arthur was highly neglected, I believe, but then again, I’m not really that interested. Also, if you’ve read something like Mists of Avalon and/or know some things about Celtic mythology, you’d know that 90% of the historical information cited in this anime is completely made-up. Yet compare this with Mists — which would you rather read?
Character: S+ / Plot+Setting: AAA+ / Music: A / Art: AA
Overall: (notice I curve this down considerably XD) AA+ [7.5/10]
The lame ending slightly lowered my rating. How does… Riannon suddenly remember some poem… and pwn everything with two sentences of Latin verse (or whatever language that is)? No sense is made. And then… it just ends. o_O
Hanamaru Kindergarten Episode 05
Yes I realize I’m about a season late. Awesome Evangelion references. Better confess, otherwise tomorrow Yuu-chan may move away… or he might be abducted by aliens tomorrow… or the Second Impact could happen tomorrow!
Hanamaru Kindergarten Episode 06
TSUCCHI’S IMOUTO IS AWESOME!!! Satsuki is now the best character in the series.
And, who would’ve guessed, she has a onii-chan complex. Wahaha.
Nagasarete Airantou Episode 15
From last episode… Mei Mei === Nodoka (wow it took me 20 seconds to recall her name) from Negima~~ I love how the introduction of new characters is well-paced. There isn’t anything I don’t like about this anime except the weird glasses-lady. Seriously, Mei Mei looks EXACTLY like Nodoka (facial expressions & reactions and all), except for recolored hair, a pair of braided bangs, and Chinese buns (what are those called), and the China dress (what are those called >> qipao?).
Oh, something interesting about the series (probably on purpose) — doesn’t “Airantou” sound like “Island” pronounced in Japanese? XD
Kaichou wa Maid-sama Episode 06
This episode is getting worse every episode. All the puns and jokes they’re using have already been done. There are NO new characters at all. The romansu SUCKS. Usui is too straightforward. Misaki’s plight is unrealistic, nothing really makes sense, and it’s not… interesting. Anymore. The first episode was funny, but… no. Not anymore.
Dance in the Vampire Bund Episode 11
Ugh, this SUCKS so bad! And it was so hyped too! The art is HORRIBLE! They keep trying to do the Ueki thing (or the Index thing or whatever other anime you want to ref) with “lone weak man VS impossible odds”… in fact, even Airantou involves these… “zettai muri” odds. Unfortunately, Bund sucks so I can’t be bothered to appreciate the effort they pretended they put into making the anime. This situation and the plotline must have been pretty good in the manga though, maybe I’ll check that out sometime.
Dance in the Vampire Bund Episode 12 FINAL
This anime. Sucked. It was off the charts.
Character: D- / Plot+Setting: D- / Art: F / Music: C
Overall: D [3/10]
Fairy Tail Episode 32
Ending to Loke arc. Nothing unexpected happened. This arc was lame.
Fairy Tail Episode 33
You can just feel the epicness of what’s about to happen in this arc flow up your veins.
Durarara! Episode 20+21
If nothing else, I love the narration of this anime.
Angel Beats Episode 09
It’s the last day of school today. And I’m pissed at life. So what do I do. I watch a good anime.
Initial comment: Wow, great quality animation. I seem to remember sucky animation at the beginning of the series; huh. Wait, there was an epic train incident and there’s no huge crowd of emergency personnel? Nobody knows that an epic train accident just happened? They’re not using their futuristic lasers to melt open the ground and save everybody with their mechas and island-sized submarine-airships? Is this really Japan? ><
Wow, Otonashi’s past…
Death is always such a good theme to explore in literature and art.
Angel Beats Episode 10
Why. Is this anime. So. Awesome. Nooo Yui! Don’t get rid of her ;_;
Oh. my. That ending was so beautiful.
Mahou Sensei Negima! Mou Hitotsu no Sekai OVA 03
I can’t believe how much the quality of this sucks. Since they’re making OVAs instead of a new anime, you’d think the quality would be drastically higher.
However. I DESPERATELYwant to see the EPIC Rakan VS Negi battle animated. Rewatching OVA 02 (fine… “OAD 02” if you want to call it that… I don’t even know what it stands for o_O), the short Negi and Kotarou fight was pretty well-done. I won’t say it was really good animation, because it wasn’t. The animation in this OVA was also not awesome enough to match the epicness of Negima. I hope they ban Negima! and Negima!? and remake the OVAs into a 100-episode anime. Then I can die happy.
I’m not reviewing every episode I watch anymore. I’m just going to randomly write about episodes if I feel like it.
Highlight of this post: ANGEL BEATS 02-05. EPIC WIN.
Durarara!! Episode 14
I like the new OP. I love Anri’s voice, but her art/character design SUCKS~ Shinra is so secretly evil ><; did Anri just die?
Tears to Tiara Episode 03
Arawn’s Wife Count: 2.
Epic arrows, cutting through solid iron armor. I love how Riannon was like “^____^” before killing that soldier. So cute ><
Isn’t fighting on a boat… kind of… dangerous? :D
Tears to Tiara Episode 05
So, what’s the first thing once you finally sneak into the enemy country’s capital city? SIGHTSEEING!!
Fairy Tail Episode 26
Hmm. Not awesome enough =D needs moar awesome!
Mayoi Neko Overrun Episode 03
I want Takumi’s harem :<
Angel Beats Episode 02&03
It got better and better. The first episode sucked.
Angel Beats Episode 04
This episode was AWESOME! If this becomes the standard for this anime, Angel Beats will meet or surpass the likes of Kanon and CLANNAD! I’m even willing to ignore the Yurippe-Haruhi issue.
But yeah, Angel Beats really has that awesome Key anime feel, with the unique style of humor, uniquely uncreative character stereotypes (it’s… unique… in how much Key reuses the same character personalities). That was a back-handed compliment, I swear.
Mayoi Neko Overrun! Episode 04
Wow, this episode is so the replacement for Sora no Otoshimono. The assortment of rich ladies also resembles Hayate no Gotoku. But still… that must have been five or ten straight minutes, that ping-pong scene. And the… um… scene… where……
Angel Beats Episode 05
That episode was as awesome, or awesomer than episode 04. It has the perfect combination of awesome music, hilarious humor, and sad, contemplative storyline and character depth. This here is a true Key masterpiece, assuming they don’t end this lamely. I seriously can’t wait for the next episode, and I haven’t felt like that for an anime in a long time…
Fairy Tail Episode 28
That was a satisfying arc conclusion.
Durarara!! Episode 16
Epic unexpected turn of events! Why are Japanese light novels always so awesome?
Shin Koihime Musou Episode 12 FINAL
SO LAME! MY EYES BLEED!!
Ryuubi suddenly bursting into song was so totally predictable. The whole thing is totally lame, but oh well, it’s typical from this anime.
Lol at the Higurashi I’m-about-to-murder-you-epicly face that whatshername makes. I also love how they pretend they’re following Chinese history. Wahaha~ that’s the best part of that anime.
Hey, it’s Bachou-imouto. She should be a major character. LOOL. Epic epilogue. Wonder if I should start the 3rd season yet.
Wow, this is getting long, I’d better click the post button. *makes up random post title*
Shakugan no Shana S Episode 02 — One of the best things about watching an anime… when you come back to it again, it feels so fresh, so nostalgic, and so pleasant.
Is what I would like to say… but this episode was 99.975% pointless. A waste of half an hour.
Shakugan no Shanatan Dos — ehh not funny
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Special – Nekogoroshi-hen — Lol.
Durarara!! Episode 12 — It turns out this anime was actually 24 episodes, so this isn’t the climax. Wahahaha.
Fairy Tail Episode 24 — eh this is getting too typical and cliche. Like, nothing’s happening happening.
BakaTest Episode 11 — OMG I finally have time to catch up on BakaTest, the awesomest anime this season.
The Sacred Blacksmith Episode 11 — playing the catch-up game. Hmmm… horrible animation, horrible voice actiong, horrible plot, horrible dialogue, horrible everything x____x
The Sacred Blacksmith Episode 12 FINAL — so like why am I still watching this.
Her sword is sexy.
Is what I would say, but it sounds quite weird out of context.
Seiken no Blacksmith / The Sacred Blacksmith FINAL REVIEW
I’m back to simple final reviews. The balance of points is probably highly inaccurate, but too bad. Also, my ratings seem to have gotten harsher or something… I didn’t expect a D.
Characters 0/2 | Plot 0/2 | Setting 1/2 | Music 1/2 | Art 1/2
Durarara!! Episode 13 — Oh my god epic new intro song.
Anri’s voice is so touching. If only she didn’t wear glasses, then I’d like her. Anyways… this episode: Introducing, the Traffic Police Force! And… Shinra’s dad is crazy. OMG Russian!
That ending… was… wow. And the ending song :3 DRRR is still running strong~
Ookamikakushi Episode 08 — I heard this anime really sucked.
Fairy Tail Episode 25 — New OP song? really?
Elfman is cool. Touching moment is not touching. In Soviet Russia, moment touching YOU!! No wait, that’s not right…
Flying kitty crying is cute. Aye! Juvia is stupid, and her whole scene-thing is stupid, and everything is stupid. Gray is awesome, though. I think I like the new ED. Next episode looks like fun things will happen.
Omamori Himari Episode 12 FINAL
Why did I watch this anime all the way through. I want the 6 hours I wasted on this back.
Omamori Himari FINAL REVIEW
The final episode was so horrible…
Characters 1.5/2 | Plot 0/2 | Setting 0.5/2 | Music 2/2 | Art 1.5/2
I’ve only just realized it, but Omamori Himari is just like Tayutama, down to the weird spirit thing; Himari simply calls them “Ayakashi” instead of “Tayutai”.
Fairy Tail Episode 20 — How come childhood-friends-who-end-up-dying are always named Lisa? Also, the set of facial expressions that characters show are getting very old, along with the camera angles and tsukkomi moments. Everything is already “been done, seen that” in this anime now.
Durarara!! Episode 08 — I’ll summarize this with the title of this episode. Life is Transient.
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 22 — Kiyama Harumi is back! And Gekota-sensei. And we’re getting back into the To Aru groove. The stupid “school life” thing that’s been going on with Railgun sucked so bad… but the new arc is YEAHH!
Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Episode 08 — I (still) worship this anime.
Omamori Himari Episode 09 — hmm… basically, if you remove 20% of this anime, it becomes 100% nude people and girls stripping.
Public Safety Division 4. I like that name.
Durarara!! Episode 09 — The backstory of the Yagiri siblings, and everything about Yagiri Pharmacy is revealed. This ep has brought Durarara!! back into my good graces.
“Oh noes! My head is running away from me!!” <– seriously this is what is happening in this episode
Orihaya Izaya: “I love humans! I just love them! I’m in love with them!”
Durarara!! Episode 10 — “The fact that you had to explain the joke just shows how lame it was.”
Our introverted protagonist, at the end of this episode, suddenly pulls a Lelouch on us. I wonder what he has planned!
Fairy Tail Episode 21 — I’m not quite sure what to say about this sudden turn of events.
Actually, after finishing it, I can say for sure. AWESOME.
Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Episode 09 — Yoshii-kun’s nee-san returns! (My first reaction was: “hmm… hairstyle… speaking pace… huge chest… IKAROS!”) And then, if you look at her based purely on her hairstyle and hair color, she also looks a lot like Saki from -Saki-.
This is so hilarious.
BakaTest Episode 10 — Eh, this one wasn’t as awesome.
Railgun Episode 23 — You can just tell from that crooked smile on her face: “Look everybody, I’m going to do something bad later on in this episode!”
That face totally looked like Uiharu was going to say “Kiyama-sense! GROUP HUG!!”
Omamori Himari Episode 10 — Soooo serious. (That soooo wasn’t sarcastic.)
I’m cold. It’s 8 in the morning~ yaawn~. (see how interesting this anime is?)
Himari’s maid… or whatever she is, and whatever her name is, is cute. Hey, isn’t this insert song the, um, B-side to the OP?
Hidamari Sketch Episode 01 — It’s funny; I accidentally downloaded Russian subs.
I still enjoyed this episode, even though I had to watch it raw. I love the low-quality animation. Seriously. Hidamari Sketch makes low-budget cheap animation look good.
Magical Pokan Episode 01 — Yeah, I felt like starting some good new old animes. Erm… good ol’ old animes.
This one is more of the pantyflashing sort. However, this is another example of great low-budget cheapo animation. I love how serious the intro sequence is, and the humor is well-done for the most part. It’s not anything approaching Hayate or anything, but it’s pretty great.
Railgun Episode 24 FINAL — where’s mah touma (final episode… we get to see him for like 2secs)…
All-in-all, this anime was not all that satisfying. The characters are great, but the plot isn’t epic enough… and the fillers were quite painful. We needed more Touma. And more Index.
Omamori Himari Episode 11 — I love how huge the character count has become at this point. This anime is good for laughing at how stupid anime in general is. Except this is a bad representation of the Japanese art of animation.
The battle is so… lame… stupid… completely idiotic. Yuuto needs to do things… THE NANOHA WAY. Making friends… one Starlight Breaker at a time. =D
This is so completely, utterly stupid. Somebody shoot me.
Durarara!! Episode 11 — The climax of Duarara!! is beyond epic. The suspense is amazing (I hate where they ended this episode… mega cliffhanger), and the entire backstory is so clever and beyond expectations.
back to one-word summaries for today.
or so I tried.
(sry about the really stupid title.)
Polyphonica Episode 11-12 — Great.
To be more specific — the ending was not epic in any way, but it gave the series a so-so conclusion without anything big. The plot of this anime never really went anywhere, so I am extremely disappointed in that respect (they could have done so much with the set-up, characters, and unique creative setting!). Also, Coatie is overpowered, but I don’t mind that.
I heard Polyphonica Crimson S was a prequel, but either way, I will be eagerly looking forward to watching the second season. The first season was some of the best character/setting build-up I’ve ever seen… but the build-up went nowhere. Nothing happened, but the animation studio somehow still made the ending somewhat satisfying, so I respect them for that.
BakaTest Episode 05-06 — Interesting.
Pretty funny. Ep 05 was the standard pool episode, funny but nothing really unique. I liked Ep 06: firstly, Yuuji+Shouko is cute. Also, the setting and how the characters were trying not to be recognized was interesting and hilarious. They also managed to make the end of the episode slightly touching, while still maintaining the tone of the series. This is what I call a well-planned, well-executed anime.
Durarara!! Episode 07 — I like how every character’s side story is being explored. Also, this seems to be building up to something epic.
Railgun Episode 20 — RSPK Syndrome.
The To Aru series has some of the best techy-thing names ever… “Imagine Breaker” coming to mind first. This looks like it might become a better arc than Level Upper. More characters = more awesomeness. Where have I heard Haruue-san’s voice before… mmmm…
[spoiler]I looked it up, she’s voiced by Kana Hanazawa, and she voiced Kagome (Asu no Yoichi), Sengoku Nadeko (Bakemonogatari), Anri (Durarara!!), Kobato (Kobato.), and Mikan (ToLOVEる).[/spoiler]
Omamori Himari Episode 07 — Child-whatsherface is actually cute.
Yea, this anime isn’t important enough for me to remember the main characters’ names. I watch this because turning off my brain for 30 minutes is relaxing in a way. I hope the brain damage isn’t permanent.
Fairy Tail Episode 19 — This made me laugh more than average. Especially the Erza-Happy switch.
Ookamikakushi Episode 07 — Peach-Pit collaborated on this? Huh, how surprising. You’d think it would be more like Shugo Chara or Rozen Maiden than all Higurashi everybody dying ten times… this isn’t Peach-Pit style at all.
Shugo Chara! Party! Episode 03 — Shugo Chara sucks really really bad, buuuut… UTAU SHOWS UP IN THIS EP!!! That cancels all else out.
Ikuto’s harem… *sigh*… and I see love blossoming between Hiiragi and our little Easter President. The song wasn’t as great as Meikyuu Butterfly or BLACK DIAMOND. Sigh.
Railgun Episode 21 — Recurring characters for the win.
Omamori Himari Episode 08 — I think I’m getting to hate this anime. Except the catchy OP, I can’t get myself to hate that. How many times have I headdeskked.
Next week: Yuuto’s harem +1?
Suddenly, I realize how pointless playing Mabinogi is, and revert to anime. (Don’t tell me anime is just as pointless as MMORPG-ing.)
Omamori Himari Episode 04 — These annoying harems really get on your nerves after a while. The “oh shit my lost childhood memories” line is really lame.
Fairy Tail Episode 16 — They’re trying too hard to be manly.
Durarara!! Episode 05 — Everything connects. It’s just that we don’t know what, when, where, why, or how.
Omamori Himari Episode 05 — It’s so serious, I’ve stopped taking it seriously. No, that was sarcastic.
Basically, the summary of Omamori Himari is… Yuuto falls in love with his pet cat. Awesome synopsis. Next week: the harem count increases to 5!
Railgun Episode 18 — Some comment about how this anime is gay now.
Fairy Tail Episode 17 — Epic story arc climax time!! Or not. Wahaha, good episode, though. Totally funny.
Omamori Himari Episode 06 — Too much fanservice.
[spoiler]The intro song has been stuck in my head for the whole week… and no, I have no idea why. Kuesu is not a cute name, her chest is too big, and she plays with her hair too often.
Yuuto’s voice is SO ANNOYING. And it’s funny how Himari got completely pwnt.[/spoiler]
Durarara!! Episode 06 — Cannibalism? Forlorn love? Celtic headless fairy? Vending-machine-tossing bartender? This anime’s got it all.
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 19 — You know what I’ve noticed? Uiharu and Saten are better characters than Biribiri and Kuroko.
Uiharu is kawaii, and Tsuchimikado Maika from Index makes her cameo. Of course she only had like 3 frames in Index anyways, so she’s actually getting about the same amount of screentime. The mystery of the mysterious flowers on Uiharu’s head thickens. This episode is actually entertaining, for a change. Now all we need is Touma. Did I just hear a reference to Index? Haha, nobody else’s appetite can match Index’s.
I’m always really picky about how people animate characters playing the violin. This animation is no better. Stupid animators who have no idea what a violin looks like, and no idea how a violin is played. I lol at the song though, nice violin version of the outro.
Anyways… TOUMA SHOWED UP!! YEAHH!
Fairy Tail Episode 18 — Galuna Island arc finally reaches a conclusion.
I had the new Fairy Tail intro stuck in my head this week, too. Catchy and optimistic.
Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Episode 05 — There’s a reason why this is the best of the season.
Baka to Test to Shokanjuu Episode 06 — See above.
Rankings as of today:
- Baka to Test to Shokanjuu – Brilliantly unique art style combined with godly humor.
- Durarara!! – It’s got it all.
- Hanamaru Kindergarten – GAINAX genius channeled into two feet of pudgy chibiness.
- Fairy Tail – Reminds me of Mabinogi.
- Omamori Himari – No thanks to the obscenity, but barring that and the uncreative plot, the girls are cute.
- Dance in the Vampire Bund – I expected so much more.
- Kobato – Haven’t watched in a while.
- Sora no Woto – I don’t get the point of this anime. The female lead gets cutest character of the season.
- To Aru Kagaku no Railgun – This is so boring.
- Ookami Kakushi – I dislike the art style, and how everybody in the town has a glasses fetish.
- Chu-Bra – No comment.
