So, anime post for today. I’m separating “life” and “anime” since… yeah.
乃木坂春香の秘密： ぷれっざ / Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 2: Purezza – The original anime was pretty funny at times, but the romance was just annoying. Well, I have to say, the second season started out really sucky. This episode sucked, except the like two scenes where Mika appeared.
I guess, basically, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu is a sucky show. Tsk, I had high expectations for both seasons. Cool OP sequence though.
そらのおとしもの / Sora no Otoshimono Episode 02 – WOW! AWESOME! Seriously. This show jumped to a new high with episode 02. It’s not exactly a romance, not exactly a harem show either. It’s not a romance-drama show, nor is it a tragedy. It is a comedy, but then again not a romantic comedy. It’s not exactly Lucky Star-style humor either. What is it then?
Sora no Otoshimono seems to be a rather unique anime. Initially, I compared the first episode to ToLOVEる (ToLOVE-ru), but that doesn’t quite match either. Sora no Otoshimono has a unique animation style, and the way each episodic storyline is presented is quite pleasing. The series also appears to have a major plot that looks exciting.
The premise itself is not entirely unique. A girl falls from the sky. Great. The unique character in this anime is the protagonist. I have already explained this in my review of the first episode, but the protagonist’s childish perspective gives this anime a fun-filled atmosphere. It really brings a smile to your face. If you maybe… ignore the panties flying left and right. Yeah. That.
フェアリーテイル / Fairy Tail – First thoughts on episode 01. “THIS IS TOTALLY MABINOGI.” Actually, before that, “This OP is totally lame.” If you care, the third thought was “Oh hey, that weird plushie/animal/thing is voiced by Rie Kugumiya!”
Okay, the character designs are totally lame. Everybody looks ugly, even the lead females.
Hm, this scene reminds me of a scene in Zero no Tsukaima. You know what, this whole ANIME reminds me of Zero no Tsukaima.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m watching AND posting at the same time. So that’s why I’m not tying in well-formed paragraphs. This section will sound rather similar to an IM convo.
… the only good thing about this anime so far is Rie-san’s voice. WTF… the cat… doll… thingy is named “Happy”?
Hmm, so the lead girl’s name is Lucy? I don’t like that name. My mom’s former boss was named Lucy.
Ugh, this anime is getting lamer by the second. It also gives off that “American cartoon” feel that I hate.
Hmm, the cat-plushie thing is kinda cute. Kinda. I mean, at least it’s better than, say, FMP’s fumoffu thingy.
… okay. Halfway point. Plot got interesting. Hold on, lemme watch some more.
… why can the cat fly? …
Hm, the lead male is kind of cool. Maaybee… like, Touma-level cool.
Cool magic circles. Not nanoha-level cool, but they look okay. Magic is lame though. Like… firebolt-level lame. Ugh.
Lol… that scene was pretty funny. Score up.
Woah… now that was cool.
… okay, that was cool for about 2 minutes. Fight scene is dragging on too long. Score down.
… that was pretty cool. PWNT!
Wow, the ED is pretty cute. Score up.
Overall… feels like Zero no Tsukaima plus maybe some Shana and totally Mabinogi/ZnT setting. Girl looks like… I don’t know, but she’s not really a unique design. Male protagonist is a Touma, except he talks less and beats people up a bit more. Score of… I don’t know, C or a B. I’ll just go ahead and go with a B.
君に届け / Kimi ni Todoke – Production I.G. – OP wasn’t anything special, but I liked it.
Lead female has a beautiful voice, lemme try to recognize. Um… Mamiko Noto? *checks ANN*
Yup, she’s voiced by Mamiko Noto, and the lead male is Daisuke-kun (voiced Fai from Tsubasa).
Wow, this starts off interesting. As expected of I.G., capture our curiosities from the start.
You know… maybe people would like you more if you SMILED? Lol, she’s having social troubles. If she was a bit prettier, I’d want to give her a hug.
You know, she is pretty. When she smiles. Wait, she doesn’t.
Oh my god, the lead male is so sweet. Ugh… (sorry for sounding like a fangirl for a moment)
…. WOOOW she is a SOCIAL FAILURE. These scenes are scaring me.
Hm, this is totally an anime for girls to watch. It’s not really interesting to me.
Well, actually, the lead male is a good role model for all of us to follow. It’s boring, but watch it, Hanchan. Maybe if you act like him, girls will be swarming around you like wasps.
Like with Fairy Tail, I’ll watch and type at the same type. Multitasking, Rank UP!
Hm, all the female characters are drawn horribly. The lead male is SO HANDSOME though!
You know, this doesn’t feel like a Mamiko Noto character. You would expect somebody more like Nogizaka Haruka, or (Itadaki no Kura) Hecate-sama.
Hm, I’m starting to hate the lead female. The lead male deserves someone better. He’s so handsome @_@
Ugh, it’s so obvious they’re in love with each other, I hate it.
… what the hell? Suddenly at the end of the episode she becomes socially adept?
Ughhh, this is so girly sweet… I can’t stand this.
Damn, this failed my expectations. Which were probably incorrect expectations in the first place, because this is a girls’ anime. D+ or C.
Great outro song. Who’s the singer, I wonder.
Animes I’m not going to watch this season:
Sasameki Koto – it’s yuri, so obviously not. Sounds like a copy of Maria-sama, anyways.
Miracle Train – I hear it’s gay. No, literally. Gay. Homosexual. As in, guys loving guys.
Armed Librarians: The Book of Bantorra – ……………….. lol, assumption: “WTF is this an anime about librarians-turned bounty hunters that are sent out to assassinate people holding overdue books?”
That might actually have been more interesting than this. Okay, first line of summary… “dead people turn into books.” Not watching.
Yumeiro Patissiere – Kill me.
Animes I might watch:
Queen’s Blade – dunno what this is, sounds lame, but I haven’t heard anything bad about it. Actually I haven’t heard anything about it at all.
Tegami Bachi / Letter Bee – going to watch this. Wikipedia’s summary sounds interesting. Sounds… Gurren Lagann? first anime that comes to mind. The name is cool, at least.
The Sacred Blacksmith – I’ve been commenting on how stupid the name was since summer, but I might give it a watch.
Asura Cryin’ 2nd Season – first things first.
Natsu no Arashi! Akanai-chuu – first season first.
Darker than BLACK 2nd Season – I’ve heard great things about the first season. First things first, of course.
Needless – a summer09 anime, might start it.
Inuyasha: The Final Act – … not that Inuyasha needs any more episodes in the first place, but maybe this will be better (it is a climax to a huge series, after all).
