First Anime Post of Winter Break

December 20th, 2009


生徒会の一存 / Seitokai no Ichizon Episode 11 — Sugisaki is sick with a fever, and the Hekiyou Acadamy Student Council is abnormally normal. No hilarity ensues.

I was originally going to use only that one line as a summary, but the ending… oh my god, Mafuyu confessed… SS. [10/10]

Lots of screenshots, see bottom post. This is the second-to-last episode of Seitokai no Ichizon.

にゃんこい! / Nyan Koi! Episode 12 — Mizuno has gotten suspicious of Junpei’s curse, causing it to progress further. Eventually, he completely becomes a cat, and in a somewhat anti-climactic climax, he finally resolves his curse. That still doesn’t mean all’s well ends well for Junpei… teehee. S. [9/10]

Screenshots are at bottom, again. This was the final episode of Nyan Koi!.

うみねこのく頃に / Umineko no Naku Koro ni Episode 24 — lolwut. D. [3/10]

Also, what happened to the random Ange-1998 flashbacks? What happened to the stupendous surprises I expected this episode, being near the end of this season? Disappointed.

Fairy Tail Episode 10 — This was just weird. C. [4/10]

What the heck happened to the plot-driven suspense and humor that made me begin to respect this anime? Disappointed.

そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono Episode 11 — I’m still obsessed with ring my bell every time I hear it.

I am now of the opinion that Sora no Otoshimono would be better without the angels. Sora no Otoshimono would then become a normal school non-harem comedy with Sohara and Tomoki.

There is something between modern Japanese society and the idea of transgenderism. With that being said, this episode Tomoki becomes a girl. Now, I could write a whole essay-length analysis on boy-girl slash transexual characters in Japanese anime… Ranma 1/2‘s aquatransgender titular character Saotome Ranma being the prime example, with things like Kampfer, one of the ToLOVE-ru OVAs, and similar… but I happen to have an English essay to write so let’s save that prompt for another rainy day.

Putting all that aside, this episode contains typical Otoshimono semi-sexual fractured humor-parody-eyecandy. Uwahahaha. This episode’s theme, I approve. Actually… nevermind. I don’t approve, but it’s still funny. And Tomo-chan got what he deserved.

Sora no Otoshimono kind of fails (epicly) at being touching, though. Oh… well.

This is the… actually, I don’t know. Surprisingly, for writing such a long review, no screenshots were taken. It’s always hard rating Sora no Otoshimono because it’s both “oh god this is epic high quality masterpiece art” and “wtf is this messed-up deranged shit” at the same time. S+. [9.5/10]

とある科学の超電磁砲 / To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 12 — End-of-arc episode; the fetus born from Kiyama-sensei is shown to be the collective conglomerate of the desperate thoughts of 3,000 depressed, defeated, and downright deficient students. Misaka fights this fetus, Antiskill actually does something (first time in the entire To Aru series! omg!), and the 3,000 students are saved… or are they? They may have risen from their comas, but they are still plagued by the troubles that guided them along said path in the first place, and as Misaka is wondering about this after she shows the audience how overpowered she is in a not-really-epic battle where Touma is decidedly missing, Kuroko jumps her, and all is normal again. Meanwhile, Saten and Uiharu have their reunion.

This is a 26-episode anime, so we’re almost halfway through. I can’t believe they took twelve episodes to do one not-so-amazing arc. (It might have been amazing if Touma had shown up, or if Kiyama-sensei was able to save those children in the end.) In Index, each arc was maybe three to six episodes at max, and although there were a mix of good and not-so-good arcs, they generally had perfect flow, no fillers or anything of the sort. Next episode of Railgun looks like a filler. Anyhow, hopefully the next story arc will feature Touma and Misaka in some heart-wrenching fantastically clever scenario, like we have come to expect from To Aru Majutsu no Index.

THERE! A PROFESSIONAL-LOOKING REVIEW! For once. Anyways, rating. S+. [9.5/10]

Kämpfer Episode 12 FINAL — I find it amusing how much this anime sucked.

Episode rating: Worst episode ever, of the worst anime ever this season. F. [2/10]

Final rating – [Kämpfer]: There wasn’t even a goddamn CONCLUSION. To ANYTHING. This anime, as a whole, gets an F [2/10]. Actually, maybe it even deserves lower. I’ll write a whole long freakin’ review-essay on it later when I feel like it.

Anyways, here are your screenshots.

Somehow a random Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo screenshot got in there. That school uniform is sexy.

Nearing End of Fall 2009

December 13th, 2009

Again, nothing entertaining to say here.

にゃんこい / Nyan Koi Episode 11 — I really hope this anime doesn’t end. Imouto is so cute too. Nagi gets drunk on juice… ahaha, reminds me of last last time in Sora no Otoshimono when Tomo-chan and Sohara got drunk on soda.

Remind we again why a random mailwoman is in love with Junpei? XD

Hey, hey, Sumiyoshi-san, don’t spill your drink on the camera.

I like how Junpei is getting a job and working hard for money. It teaches the anime-watching teenage population good life skills.

To Aru Majutsu no Index reference in the eyecatch. *faints* Junpei == Touma, and I am such a fan of Index by now…

From now on I will switch between calling him “Kousaka” and “Touma 2”. This episode was sweet. I don’t like Sumiyoshi, but it turned out sweet either way. BRILLIANT WAY TO END THE EPISODE. That final scene brought this from SS to SS+. [10.5/10]


Kampfer Episode 11 — Ugh. UGH. This has got to be the worst, most f**’d up anime this season. My eyes hurt.

I must say, the transformation animations are the only cool thing in the ENTIRE EPISODE. I already mentioned how stupid the mind-control thing was. The Sakura-san-is-secretly-evil thing too.

What the hell… as their “power level” increases, their clothing begin to peel off… o-o. Why the heck are the ugly stuffed animals singing a stupid Christmas song during the climax? What the heck is with this ending… I still have to give it a B for good animation, though. Bah. [5/10]

Long Long Anime Post to Make Up For Whatever

December 9th, 2009

I have nothing entertaining to say here.

[1555 words.]

そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono Episode 09 — No intro song? Interesting, what’s going on with Nymph and Synapse. As usual, Eishirou’s entertaining monologues are both insightful and idiotic.

Tomo-chan gets drunk off soda, Sohara is still my favorite character, and Nymph is back. Well, of course.

Nymph fails at being evil, and Tomoki hits on her because Ikaros fails at pretending to be human.

This anime still has the BEST CHARACTER ANIMATION EVER. Even without any story or joking, the art is HILARIOUS by itself.

WTFLOL (and even a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann ref~)

It’s still obscene and kind of random, but it’s good where it counts. And yeah, good job kidnapping Tomoki, you just ended up falling more in love with him.

And why does Ikaros randomly kiss Tomoki out of the blue. That sucked… I want it to be some epic climax where they kiss, not a totally random scene at the end of the anime. However, the ED makes up for it, so great. Great new song, as usual.

S. [9/10]

If there were less naked people, this would’ve been a 10/10. You can tell a -lot- of work goes into the making of each episode of this anime, which is why I really enjoy most episodes of Sora no Otoshimono.

Kampfer Episode 09 — This anime has gotta be one of the worst this season (although others seem to think it’s the best). To tell the truth, when Fall 2009 first began, Kampfer was at the top of my list. However, it’s a) not funny b) not touching c) not cute d) not a unique story e) not unique in ANY way actually. Also, a) every single girl AND BOY is in love with Natsuru, b) Natsuru is a total idiot, c) what the hell is going on with the plot anyways?

The voice actor jokes used to be funny, but now they’re just stupid. There are new characters every episode, all of them are so dumb it hurts to watch Kampfer now. I don’t get how Sakura is secretly evil suddenly. I don’t get how everybody is too dumb to realize anything. I don’t get the lame mind control. It’s so lamee it hurts.

Okay, this just went over the “T” rated-level. Why is this being shown on public television again?

Eh, this episode actually thickened the plot, so it wasn’t as horrible as usual. A+. [6.5/10]

真・恋姫無双 / Shin Koihime Musou Episode 09 — Enshou (or whatever her name was)’s attendant looks like a flight attendant. x3

A public service announcement from Shuri: Be careful of lightning on cloudy days!

Hm, I’m pretty sure that  in Ancient China people didn’t wear swimsuits around everyday so casually. Still, though, with the censoring. If you’re going to show naked girls doing obscene things (which I would rather not see in the first place), why are you then censoring it? o-o

This ep was pretty deep for a Koihime ep. Usually it’s just *naked girls bath scene*, and then *clothes get ripped of in random battle*, and then some corny line that was supposed to be touching in some irrelevant way. AAA+. [8.5/10]

Next ep is Shuri and her new side-character.

にゃんこい! / Nyan Koi! Episode 09 — Wow, I’m two episodes behind on this.

I love this anime, because I like every character — Junpei, Kaede (lol, love interest in Kampfer is also named Kaede), Nagi, Imouto, twins, and even the cats. The humor is of a different nature than Seitokai, so that’s why it’s also in my top 3 Most-Looked-Forward-To list (see below).

And the twins (“tsu-ins”, more like — yay, I made a Japanese pun!). And then Nagi makes a stunning dramatic appearance XD. And then the random mailwoman makes her random appearance. And Junpei is in a swimming pool with 6 fantastic girls that are all in love with him. What would you do in this situation? ^-^

The 2nd half of the episode is focused on Sumiyoshi-san. Who is not my favorite character, by the way.

And it’s hilarious how Imouto and Mom try to track down all detective-like how many/which girls visited Junpei ><

Woah, next episode is on the twins. SS, for the first half, but since I don’t like Sumiyoshi-san, S. [9/10]

にゃんこい! / Nyan Koi! Episode 10 — The pre-opening scene… was that a parody of something, or was it “real”? I can totally see the twins as magical girls >.<

See, another thing I like about Nyan Koi! are the little jokes — the things you don’t always notice, but when you do, are so hilarious. It’s one of those things, where somebody puts a heck of a lot of effort into something, but only a few people ever notice, and even fewer convey their appreciation to that somebody. To refrain from quoting Holden, I’ll just say, “That’s so depressing.”

… magical girl transformation scenes, check. Spirits, check. Magical powers, check. Nyan Koi! has now become magical-girl Bakemonogatari or something. XD

This is so… um… it’s so hilarious and odd, it’s not even comment-able. AND THEN THE MAILMAN APPEARS ahahahaha!

Kyaah, this anime is really just too cute and hilarious for me to give it anything less than an S. By the way, S. [9/10]

こばと。 / Kobato Episode 08 — Kitten… Fall 2009 has too much about cats. And I agree, “Milk” is totally a cute name for a cat~

Fujimoto is so depressing. Everything else is so cheerful, but Fujimoto makes this so depressing, he counteracts the entire rest of the cast.

“I think… the kitten reminded him of himself.” Great, now let’s go into a Catcher in the Rye-esque analysis of all the symbols in this episode. =_=

*kitten clutches at chest… oh wait, Kobato doesn’t have breasts*

Wow, last episode’s Character of the Day actually reappeared. :O And are Chiho+Chise going to become main characters? Looks like this is gonna be like Chobits 2. XD

And yeah… give her your phone number. =_= Kobato is too dumb for anything. Also, in Chobits wasn’t Chitose some super-genius? Wonder if she also has her secret lab like in Chobits ><

Wow, the nice lady waaay back from Episode 1 reappears to take in the kitten… and wow, Fujimoto-san is so secretly nice. Sigh, what a nice conclusion.

And so, the episode ends happily ever after in typical CLAMP style. S. [9/10]

Aand… Kobato sings~~ It’s an epic song, and the accompaniment animation makes it even more dramatic. I’m surprised this is only the 2nd time she’s sung in 8 episodes.

Anyways, this was as sweet as any CLAMP episode ever was. Great ep.

フェアリーテイル/ Fairy Tail Episode 09When the most intelligent character in an anime is a winged cat, you know said anime will be entertaining.

This next episode was great as well; I see Fairy Tail is getting better every ep. S. [9/10]

Whoa, next episode is Natsu VS Erza.

そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono Episode 10 — Yeah, ep 10 came out by the time I got here.

Complaint #1: Everybody’s breasts are too big. I have a problem with that.

Episode title: “天使の旋律(ことば)の向かう先”, “Tenshi no Senritsu (Kotoba) no Mukau Saki”, with “kotoba” being the furigana/ruby for “senritsu”. Basically, it would be translated as “Where the Melodies (Words) of Angels Go”. “Senritsu”, read in Chinese as “xuan2 lü4”, means melody, and the act of placing “kotoba” — words — above the kanji for melodies is another example of this extremely interesting technique of Japanese writers. See, episode titles are always so entertaining and educational.

“Forming a band”? Cough… K-On!… and yeah, I see how the title relates now ^_^; and raise your hand if you want a childhood friend like Sohara-san for a waifu.

Wow… poor Nymph… this is just sad >.<; isn’t that child abuse?

Wow, Sorami Acadamy’s orchestra is TINY. And they play music that we could play in 6th grade. At least the Sora no Otoshimono animators can draw violins correctly… cough at Shugo Chara!.

Ikaro’s singing is great. No complaints. That was completely totally sweet. It was like, Kobato-type sweet. Wow, the ending animation this episode is bloopers of scenes that were already funny. Not that interesting, they run out of ideas pretty soon for funny things to do to random scenes. And great, now everybody is getting drunk on orange juice this episode. =D; S. [9/10]

こばと。 / Kobato Episode 09 — Aaand a new Kobato ep is out. Silly Kobato-chan. The “healing peoples’ feelings” thing has like 99% similarity to ×××HoLiC. Kobato has a random habit of announcing her intentions to the camera.

Also, normally, would you tell a random girl you just met on the street everything about your personal life and all your secret feelings and thought? No? I thought not. See, that’s the main logical issue with Kobato.

Technically… Kobato is… stalking these people… you know? I know she’s trying to heal their hearts and blah, buut… borderline obsession xD

Also, how come every time somebody is troubled in this anime, they sit on the same goddamn swing set?

Uwahh… this turned out soooo sweet~~! It’s almost sickeningly sweet, except CLAMP knows what variables to manipulate to make it just “sweet”. AAA. [8/10]

“Anime I Look Forward to the Most Each Week”:

Rank Name
(1) To Aru Kagaku no Railgun
Nyan Koi!
Seitokai no Ichizon
(2) Fairy Tail
Sora no Otoshimono
(3) Shin Koihime Musou
Umineko no Naku Koro ni

These are kinda-maybe-not-really in order.

Shots from this post follow.


November 30th, 2009

Let’s lengthen my “one-word reviews” to “one-paragraph”. One word is still too little.

And yes, lol, it looks like I have quickly given up on systematic ratings. Heh.

Kampfer Episode 09

… umm.

I can’t understand the thought process that goes on in the minds of the producers who came up with this anime. It’s even harder for me to understand the minds of the people who can actually enjoy watching this without breaking their desks (from all the headdesk-ing).

Right, random screenshot.

C+. [4.5/10]

Seiken no Blacksmith Episode 09

It turns out Luke had a childhood friend who was identical to Cecily, and something tragic happened to her. That explains his coldness, but it doesn’t make this any less lame. It’s still sweet, though. I guess I’m a sucker for the “childhood friend” character.

So, like… Cecily and Luke go out on a date. Cecily is finally wearing something that doesn’t emphasize her bust (e.g. normal girl clothing). Tsundere+tsundere makes for a rather entertaining combination.

Well, it didn’t suck that bad. A. [6/10]

Another reason I dislike this anime is because it goes against some of my principles. Cecily “tries so hard”, yet she still sucks so bad, it’s almost funny.

Fairy Tail Episode 08

Loved it. Climax of this arc, and beautifully done. SS. [10/10]

Kobato Episode 07 –e

Kobato’s character is cliche and lame, but sure. Whatever. Fujimoto-san is totally a relate-able character, though.

“Chiho” and “Chise”? Great, more CLAMP crossovering >< Anyways, yay for Chitose showing up. I don’t even remember her at all from Chobits of any of her incarnations in Tsubasa.

Oh, and how come it -just happens- that every person Kobato meets is “troubled”? I like the inner themes of “kindness”; personalities, problems, the meaning of strength — true strength. It’s a CLAMP thing… but the characters of Kobato aren’t likable enough.

However, I still feel CLAMP could have done this even better. It was touching, yes, but… you could tell it was intentionally meant to be touching, and I just don’t like that feeling. A. [6/10]

why am I watching anime

November 23rd, 2009

Kampfer Episode 08

… no. C. [4/10]

Fairy Tail Episode 07 — woah, this anime just keeps getting better.

S+. [9.5/10]


Standardized score calculation: focus of anime is [humor], [plot]; categories will be weighted heavier.

Humor <4/5> Plot <4/5> Characters <2/2> Art <2/2> Music <1/2> Mood/Tone <1/2> Dialogue <1/2> = Total «15/20»

This heuristic approach to scoring brings my scores way down, I find, so I’ll give both from now on (when I have the time).

Actually, this might be better:

Humor <x/5> Plot <x/5> Characters+Art+Music <x/5> Mood+Tone+Dialogue <x/5> = Total «x/20»



Nyan Koi! Episode 08

Why are gg’s subs showing up messed up in MPC? I don’t mind VLC, but still.

Hilarity as we have come to expect from Nyan Koi!.

AWESOME! Nagi randomly shows up, as usual.

Mailwoman too >.<

This season had a lot of animes that started out great, but the pool has thinned out. This is one of the animes that is still awesome. (And I didn’t like it that well at the start of the season, right?)

“Why did you steal Mizuno’s bra!?!? But more importantly, WHY DIDN’T YOU STEAL MINE??”

Humor <5/5> | Plot <4/5>

Characters <2/2> | Art <2/2>

Music <1.5/2> | Mood/Tone <1.5/2>

Dialogue <2/2> == Total «18/20»

Damn, that’s a high heuristic score.

Next week: our pool/beach episode! Oh, and normal score is S. Yes, score is lower than this week’s Fairy Tail even though the systematic score is higher by three points. [9/10]

11eyes Episode 07

I’m not really even expecting anything from this anime anymore.

The song lyrics are deep, and the anime dialogue tries to be just as deep (and fails). If only the anime was as good as the opening song, haha.

… Yuka is so lame, it’s almost funny. “Oh my god, Kakeru now knows there are other pretty girls in the world! I’m now going to go suicide myself or something.”

The girl in the crystal is cute, it just happens that she never does anything except… um… open her eyes… and then… close them…

Kakeru is so stupid; even stupider than Cecily (Blacksmith).

Yuka randomly asked like “OMG Kakeru-kun KISS ME!”… and when Kakeru-kun goes “HELL NO” she cries, runs away, and hopefully died.

… and have I mentioned how overpowered Takehisa is? o-o

Hurry up and kill Yuka off already. She’s pissing me off so much.

… too much crying in this episode for no reason. Usually you don’t have your characters cry until like the climax, when something really epic happens..

On second thought, green-haired girl (forgot her name already…) is more overpowered than Takehisa-senpai. Right, Kukuri-san. Somehow, I find her muteness sexy.

What the heck just happened there. That didn’t make any goddamn sense.

… is this a random flashback? Great, just what we needed. =_=

Either way, epic music. Epic animation. Unparalleled CG quality and blah blah blah, but the anime sucks, and that’s the bottom line. D. [3/10]

Humor <0/5> | Plot <1/5>

Characters <1/2> | Art <2.5/2>

Music <2/2> | Mood/Tone <1/2>

Dialogue <0.5/2> == Total «8/20»


yes, wow.

Saturday Anime Post

November 14th, 2009

I tried, but I didn’t do anything productive today.

11eyes Episode 06

The latest plot device is cool but it’s still lame. Also, Yuka fails at being jealous, or dealing with any romantic competition at all. Well I understand that she thinks Kakeru-kun slept with Kusakabe-senpai, but she’s just so dense. Forget her, you do have like six other girls who like you…

And then randomly… “Kiss me.” Please…

Also, the “Coming of the Red Night” animation is super fantastic cool, but it gets boring after a while.

You know, since time is stopped, the Red Night would be a good time to catch up on sleep and do homework.

The magical circles are lame.

“Your existence itself is a sin.”

“It’s as if you’re calling yourself an emissary of justice.”

“You all must disappear.

For the sake of the future.”


Wow, Kusakabe-senpai’s attacks are cool. WOW, Kukuri-san’s powerers are super-mega-amazing. Or, well, more “cheap” and… lol.

The names of the badguys… are lame. Everything is either lame or un-understandable.

Enjoyable OP and ED though, as usual. The Hungarian is cool; it must have cost them a bunch to hire a person who could speak Hungarian. B. [5/10]

Lol at how Yuka might have died. I hope she died. =_=

Kampfer Episode 07

UGH what is this… my eyes… it burns………..

the only good part in this episode: Mikoto randomly popping up.

UGH SAKURA IS SO ANNOYING! ALL THE CHARACTERS SUCK. except for Mikoto.What the hell does he find attractive in her? HER PERSONALITY IS SO DAMN STUPID.

This ep is an effing F.

Wait yay there is some action in this ep!

… yeah, a random 5 seconds of action before diving back into the stupidity.

For Mikoto and those 5 seconds of action… D-. I hate the president, I hate the stupid glasses-girl, I hate Sakura now, and Natsuru is being annoying and stupid too.

D-. [2.5/10]

And lol at the stupid Harry Potter joke at the end that I didn’t get anyways because I don’t rea it.

Nyan Koi Episode 07

Is it just me or is gg’s encoding deteriorating? Be back with more on this later or tomorrow.

The Weekend Post / Kämpfer 06

November 7th, 2009

Good stuff.

It's Mikoto!

It's Mikoto!

Kämpfer Episode 06 — Like I said last week, this week’s episode is going to be AWESOME.

You can't beat the moe clueless sexy antennahead character.

You can't beat the moe clueless sexy antennahead character.

And I was right. This week has completely restored my opinion of Kampfer.

This episode, we FINALLY introduced Mikoto! Kondou Mikoto is the short-haired moe girl who’s been sending Natsuru, her long-time childhood friend and coincidentally also the male protagonist of this anime, a postcard from some obscure country every episode, up ’til now. She’s traveled the world, and now she’s come home to stake her claim on Natsuru-san.

So, let’s count Natsuru’s harem now: Akane, Student Council President (didn’t bother remembering her name), Sakura, the entire school, females AND males… and now Mikoto has arrived to steal him away!

That pole should say "Reserved for Yoshida".

That pole should say "Reserved for Yoshida".

This is immediately my favorite pairing. I admit I’m kinda a sucker for the “childhood friend” character type, but she is just too cute to resist.

You can't resist this face.

You can't resist this face.

She is voiced by Kana Asumi, whose name I haven’t heard of until now. She was Kiyal in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (so that’s where I remember the voice from <3333), Natsumi in Kyou no Go no Ni (don’t remember the voices from that, and maybe the anime voices were different from the OVA ones; haven’t watched the anime yet), Hyouka from To Aru Majutsu no Index, and finally… Ran from Shugo Chara!~~

So she’s acted a lot of characters I liked before ^^

It's like Akane with silver hair and a black uniform. Real creative.

It's like Akane with silver hair and a black uniform. Real creative.

Uguuuuu~ and her Kampfer-transformation is also uber uber cute!

Although I can’t quite say it’s original.

She’s not foul-mouthed and ill-mannered like Kampfer/Akane, but she still is ferocious and posesses most of the qualites I like about Kampfer/Akane. I hate normal Akane, by the way. She stole a wonderful name (Akane from Ranma 1/2) and has glasses (which are eww to me).



White/silver hair is also really cute, along with the black uniform (although… like, why? XD).

I also have grown to hate the student council president (whose name I still haven’t remembered yet). She’s ugly. She’s mean. She’s evil. She’s a badguy. NOTHING LIKE say Hinagiku-san (lol first person I jump to) or… or even Seitokai no Ichizon‘s president (whose name I also… happen to not remember.)

She has a "WTF" reaction similar to Amu's.

She has a "WTF" reaction similar to Amu's.

It’s weird, ‘cuz, anime characters generally call student council presidents “student council president” instead of their name, so I tend to not remember their names. Haha.

I think Seitokai‘s was named… … I can only think of “Aka-chan”, which is what the black-haired girl (secretary) calls her. Damn, I can’t remember the secretary’s name either… oh, right, Chizuru.

As for picture to the left’s caption… Mikoto is totally similar to Amu in many ways. Barring the “magical girl” plot-device-related topics, she has both a girly and a “Tch.” cool side. Too bad she doesn’t have a harem of her own (or maybe she’ll attain one in future eps… since it’s Kampfer, I could really see that coming.) Anyways, their hairstyles are quite different (I like both I guess… but pink gives Amu the advantage) and yes, ahoge is the mark of the elite.

To sum it up: this episode introduced Mikoto-chan, Natsuru’s long-time childhood friend. Obviously, it goes without saying that she is also in love with him (along with every other male AND female student that attends the school). Also, obviously she also turns out to be a Kampfer and shows us her mad pwnage sword skills. The absolute funniest moment this episode: when she found out female Natsuru was the male Natsuru. THAT MOMENT WAS AWESOME>>

If only every episode would turn out this great. SS. [10/10]

Natsuru is the complete, PERFECT opposite of Seitokai's Sugisaki Ken. (This caption text was irrelevant concerning the image it is attached to.)

Friday Anime Post

November 1st, 2009

I love Fridays. Have I mentioned that?

I’ve been continuously watching anime ever since I got home from school today, pretty much.


とある科学の超電磁砲 / To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 05 — Watching elementary-school Kuroko pwning a buff adult robber is awesome, but I don’t like Kuroko or eps focused on her.

However, it was one of those really really touching episodes. Of course, the To Aru series is more action mixed with touching morals… well I guess we had a bit of action. Hmm.

If only real life elementary girls were this intelligent… no, if only real life HIGH SCHOOL students were this intelligent, this world would be more than anyone could ever wish for.

I wish the outro was better. S. [9/10]

真・恋姫無双 / Shin Koihime Musou Episode 04 — Lol, the three Chou sisters are cute. I think too much of the ep was focused on them though. Well, they are the focus of this ep, so w/e. This ep wasn’t particularly interesting or funny. AA. [7/10]

Kampfer Episode 05 — This is getting stupider each episode. What the hell is with the lesbian-ness? Only no-life hairy single hikikomori male Japanese failures at life would watch this anime, is the feeling I’m getting now XD

Did you even have any in the first place?

Did you even have any in the first place?

"... who overshadows Haruhi even when she isn't melancholic."

The girl-likes-girl-ness of it all is killing this anime.

That was kind of funny. It feels like the kind of line that would be in Seitokai. What the hell are “Entrails Animals”… who would want a stuffed animal with its intestines, stomach, and internal organs sticking out and visible and… touchable…

I’m glad at least this series has enough sense to laugh at itself for being so stupid. That’s always great, when a stupid anime laughs at how stupid it is.

My thoughts exactly.

My thoughts exactly.



Um, what the hell.

Ugh, I hate how there are so many girls. Usually, I like these kinds of harems (see CLANNAD), but… ugh… everybody is being so FORCEFUL and honest about their love… it’s basically five girls chasing Natsuru-san (who is also a girl) around asking her to marry them…

This is the only good part about this episode:



Of course, she only appears for 5 seconds at the very end of the episode…

And I don’t even remember her name…

とにかく, this ep deserves no more than an B. [5/10]


It’s Sunday now, and although Blacksmith is out, and I haven’t watched this week’s Nyan Koi, etc etc, I promised myself I wouldn’t watch any anime today. I have three essays due and another assignment, JUST for English!

Monday will be fun though, I’ll have two or three of my top Fall09 animes to watch in one day.

See, I’m capable of coming up with creative names for my anime posts.

Firstly, Shakugan no Shana S, the four-part OVA leadup to the long-awaited third season of mega-popular anime Shakugan no Shana, is now out in Blu-ray and DVD. J.C. Staff just released the first episode, Reshuffle.

Other than the normal Thursday/Friday-ish lineup of things like Kampfer, Shin Koihime Musou, Umineko no Naku Koro ni, etc, I’m still watching Shugo Chara!. If the anime is longer than, say, 30 episodes, usually I lose interest after the first half.

However, like Ranma 1/2, Shugo Chara! and Shugo Chara!! Doki have captured my inner fanboy and, like Hayate no Gotoku, combine interesting episodic storylines with a larger major plotline. Of course, there’s no missing the Hayate-like humor that’s scattered throughout Shugo Chara! either.

Now, on to the episodic reviews.

Shakugan no Shana S Episode 01 “Reshuffle” – This felt like a standard Shana episode; however, I haven’t watched Shana for months or years. It felt good to experience a new Shana episode.

As for the content of the episode, it wasn’t particularly breathtaking, epic, or even fantastic. I think just the feeling of new Shana satisfied me. However, I won’t give it something in the S to SS range like the animes, because it wasn’t that good, particuarly. Actually, since it’s called Shakugan no Shana “S”, maybe I should give it an S anyways. S-. [8.5/10]

Shakugan no Shanatan Revenge – YESS! As usual, Shanatan is better than Shakugan no Shana itself. Index and Nagi (from To Aru Majutsu no Index and Hayate no Gotoku! respectively) make hilarious cameos… and… just, everything is hilarious. Of course. SS-. [9.5/10]

On second thought, I downgrade the actual Shana S episode to an AA. [7/10] Yeah, too bad. Compared to Shanatan (which doesn’t really deserve a 10/10, so it gets 9.5), Shakugan no Shana has to be like at least ranks below Shanatan.

WHERE ISH MY Hayate-tan no Gotoku!! series? >_____>

Also, awaiting Railgun-tan. They’re gonna do it, right? Haha.


Kampfer Episode 04 – “Make me feel good!” Wtf? Why do they need to remind us that this is from a dating sim?

However, the Student Council President has an interesting side. The stupid stuffed animals, I still hate their guts (no pun intended).

So many good voice actors in this anime, but such a sucky anime. I like the genderbender aspect, but… um… yeeahhh. What’s with the sexual connotations that everybody thinks are behind everything Natsuru-san says?

So. An interesting anime… where we watch… boys… shop for… female underwear… and lingerie………

In this episode… we learned:

  • How to put on a bra.
  • How to choose female underwear in Japan.
  • Factoid: When guys attain sex appeal, the emotional trauma will take decades to heal.
  • Factoid: Student council presidents generally suck at singing. Hinagiku-san (Hayate/2) is an exception, because Itou Shizuka is beyond awesome.
  • Factoid: Every anime, as a rule, MUST include a Macross reference. “Atashi no uta wo kike!!!!
  • How to confess your love for a person of the same sex.

… just… because… it was kind of… um… let’s go with an A. [6/10]

The outro (and intro) I really like. I wonder when the final main character will be introduced; she’s cute.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni Episode 17 – “All magic exists to bring happiness to the human world.”

Best line in the entire anime so far, considering what has happened in this anime so far >_< So terribly ironic.

Beato’s character change is just TOO huge to bear. Just three or four episodes ago she was like “HAHAHAHA KILL MURDER SLAUGHTER” and now she’s all being a crybaby and weak and nice and… this just feels awkward.

What the hell is with the “Siestas”? They’re so goddam moe, they don’t belong in this anime. Their animations are stupid too. It feels more like Digimon than the Nanoha-like feel they were probably aiming for.

Of course, seeing them die is never fun, but we see like 10-20 people die per episode so you get used to it.

OMG we finally see Ange! For… like… a half-second flashback.

Jessica looked like Shion or Rena from Higurashi in that one moment. ^^

I still like Higurashi better. Boring episode. The morals they were trying to convey didn’t really reach me. Maybe it’s because… I can’t use magic… B. [5/10]

Shin Koihime Musou Episode 03 – They finally added Ryuubi to the opening! Which, by the way, is EPIC. If not for Seitokai no Ichizon, it might be my favorite OP this season. KIZUNA, ATSUI KIZUNA~

So they go to visit Kousonsan… wait, who’s Kousonsan? [/runninggag] but lol, Enshou VS Kousonsan… hahaha.

Ryuubi is so cute+awesome.

The “competition” gets a bit… uhh… yeah…. in the 2nd round.

This falls in the "WTF!?" category, too.

Of course, we can’t have Koihime without some perverted stupid scenes.

How Ancient Chinese lords and viceroys settled their disputes with each other in the Three Kingdoms era.

You know, I miss Bachou already.

SS (it’s that good). [10/10]

Yes, the only reason I love it this much more than Koihime Musou itself is ‘cuz of Ryuubi. <3


I miss -Saki-. It was my weekly dose of mahjong and random yuri, but it was still really great. Hopefully another season comes along soon. As for Bakemonogatari, I realize I haven’t even finished watching it. I don’t really miss Kanamemo or Sora no Manimani, either. Of course, obviously I miss Hayate2, but that’s so popular there won’t be a problem getting another season. I guess I miss Tayutama, waay back from Spring 2009. Well, I don’t really miss the anime; I miss the intro song <3333


October 21st, 2009

There is absolutely nothing new in my anime life, so I’m sure some of you will be happy to hear that this is the only anime-related sentence in this post.

However, anime-related music is another topic completely. Today was an awesome day in terms of new singles. only my railgun by fripside (the opening to… guess what, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun) was leaked, haha, and the song sounds totally EPIC. The binaural-ness is really cool! The Kampfer ep also came out, whatever it was called, along with the last two K-On! character songs (Ui <333 and Nodoka), and a couple of Macross F songs and whatnot.

(Come on guys, what I really want is the Seitokai no Ichizon intro! Uuu~!)


So, today was the Math Team meeting. I’m in the Calculus group… because… that’s the only topic that I don’t know. Yes, I make so much sense. And… of course, they made me do most of the work. Haha…

Oh, that’s right, Andy asked me about some of those circle problems on the tryout. I’ll post them up for you to ponder again, and provide solutions later, when I have time. Wait, I never have time. Ha. Ha.

As for the team itself, I didn’t make Secretary or anything. I must not look cool enough, all these elections end up as popularity contests. Oh well, less work to do, I’m happy.


I have work to do today (not really), so I’m going to try not to bother people on MSN today by not logging in. I have to multitask watching Shugo Chara! + listening to new music that just came out + study for AP Physics test + do Math Team stuff + USAMTS + too much other stuff.
