3 months of random anime comments

June 11th, 2010

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.

Spring 2010

April 18th, 2010

SPRING 2010 ANIME SEASON has started! Yes I understand I’m about four weeks late but hey, lots of things happened, okay? Here’s stuff I wrote in Canada, plus more.

(Tuesday, April 6, 2010)

Kaichou wa Maid-sama / The Student Council President is a Maid! Episode 01

The title made this anime sound really perverted and bad… but this anime wasn’t perverted at all; a real surprise.

The art style really reminded me of the Shugo Chara anime’s art style, and Misa does have many of Amu’s traits.

As this is a shoujo anime, the male protagonist is extremely handsome and unrealistically awesome; however I find that I don’t seem to mind, so I think I’ll keep watching this anime.

Random comments: OMG another cool imouto character!

ToLOVE-ru OVA 03

I’ve missed ToLOVE-ru so bad. It was my random destressing anime for a time, and the pervertedness is something you get used to. Once you get past that, the randomness, character depth, and general entertainment provided by ToLOVE-ru is epic.

This OVA had too much fanservice, and after not watching for a while, it took me time to get used to ignoring the fanservice.

WTF with the female-Rito shots… ><;;

Anyways, this wasn’t up-to-par, compared to what I remember of the ToLOVE-ru OVAs.

ToLOVE-ru OVA 04



and then they’re suddenly teleported into the Great Demon Lord’s castle and lame things happen… and suddenly Rito is making a “maybe” love confession.

funny how epicness goes downhill so fast.

AND LALA’S TWIN SISTERS APPEAR! For the first time. interestingly.


Nice episode.

Oh, I hear that Mayoi Neko Overrun (Spring 2010 anime) is by the same mangaka as ToLOVE-ru. If so… *wry smirk* AWESOME!!

Nana’s seiyuu = Kanae Itou [Amu@Shugo Chara, Mihoshi@Sora no Manimani, Saten@Railgun, will be Fumino Serizawa@Mayoi Neko Overrun!]

Momo’s seiyuu = Aki Toyosaki [Yoshino@Minami-ke, Su@Shugo Chara, Yui@K-On!, Lisa@Blacksmith, …, Uiharu@Railgun!]

Perfect pair.

Mayoi Neko Overrun! Episode 01

OMG ToLOVE-ru + Nyan Koi! combination! DO WANT!

(You get used to how generic it is and start getting excited about anime again about now. Deal with it.)

Actually, that guy reminds me of Tomoki. Really. He does. The voice, the personality and all.

I’m not sure yet if his sister/childhood friend/whoever it was that was banging on his head waking him up is as good as Sohara, though.

Ohhh, the sister is a different character. And that one was his childhood friend. Ah. I see. The stereotypes are always the same ^_^ anime is so predictable.

Did I just hear Rie Kugumiya? God.

OH HEY I just recognized Itou Kanae’s voice. That took a while.

But yeah, I’m just sitting here waiting for Rie Kugumiya to randomly spout “AYE!” ><;


Wow. This is deep. Also, no really perverted scenes, or at least nothing on the level of ToLOVE-ru or Omamori Himari or (god forbid…) Kampfer.

This is pretty good.

Hm, who does Otome-oneechan remind me of. :/

Mayoi Neko Overrun! Episode 02

This anime may consist entirely of overused anime stereotypes, but they are overused WELL.

I haven’t screenshotblogged an episode in a while. Huh.

The nekomimi shoujo is secretly Nagato Yuki in disguise or something… she can do everything perfectly, and is perfect in every way that Nagato was.

Why do the OP and ED songs SUCK so bad? o_O

B-gata H-kei Episode 01

There’s really nothing I can say about this anime. Its uniqueness is too much (OVER 9000!!!!).

The imouto character is cute. The lead female is… a new category of her own. And the person who seems to be our lead male is fat, plain, ugly, and stupid. Tehe.

B-gata H-kei Episode 02

Interesting, unique anime, like I said before. I can’t say I like any of the characters other than the imouto. Her best friend isn’t really likable, the guy is too stupid and ugly, and even the lead herself is much too oddball to be likable.

Even though the humor is interesting, I may end up dropping this anime for lack of character depth, or maybe like even lack of character design in the first place.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama Episode 02 — I’m loving this. Usui is the Ikuto (facial expressions and all), and Misa is the Amu. Totally. But wahh, this is a pretty good anime. It almost makes me laugh as much as BakaTest (to compare it to something recent). I hear there’s some other awesome comedy anime this season, though… what was it, B gata H kei or something. I heard it was kind of more adult-oriented, though. This anime (despite the name), is all-ages fun, like BakaTest.

ToLOVE-ru OVA 05


Angel Beats Episode 01

I can’t comment yet.

Current spring rankings:

  1. Mayoi Neko Overrun!
  2. Kaichou wa Maid-sama
  3. B-gata H-kei
