I’ve changed my mind …

10 10 2008

Instead of just trying out the few series that seems okay this seasons I am going to watch at least episode 1 of every show and then decide which ones I am going to continue watching and also give you a short review for all of them (not long ones like those with Hyakko, Toradora! and Casshern Sins … I think … I hope). The ones I have watched with the previous weekend is Casshern Sins, Toradora! and Hyakko and Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka is still waiting and now when I’m back for yet another weekend I have so far downloaded (although they are not all finished) Kannagi, Kuroshitsuji, Kyou no Go no Ni (TV), Shikabane Hime: Aka, Tales of the Abyss (the one I started last week was still at 0.0% downloaded), Macademi WAsshoi (man, that was a quick download – less than a minute without forced start), Ga-Rei -Zero- (also a fast download) and I’m still not finished. :)

EDIT: Now I have downloaded/started downloading To Aru Majutsu no Index (right after I originally finished this post) and Yozakura Quartet. That’s all I could find. The rest, I guess, still have to go TV in Japan first or be distributed for download (yay, illegalness is what makes a sentence great). See you next time when I’m gonna review more of this season’s new anime!

P.S. After this weekend I won’t be able to watch anime until the weekend after the coming one, because then I’m going to visit my older brother and next week Bleach is finally off it’s long filler arc (unless it’s a skip week or something, I’m not watching until the fillers are over). Oh my, now many downloads are getting finished – time for anime marathon!


I’m falling for this Fall 2008!

5 10 2008

Can you believe it? A total of 41 new anime shows starting this fall! That’s seriously too much, NOBODY will be able to watch all of them! And that is a shame because of the ones I’ve seen yet and what my friends tell me they are almost all of them great! I wish I could just stop time for a few days every week so I could watch them all, but I’m busy as it is and not even a time-stopper could help me now. It’s so sad, so much great things going to waste (in my case) … Anyway, what I was going to write in this post was just a list of the new series of this fall in case you can’t keep track on it yourself (but hey, don’t try to watch them all – you’ll croak). I will also give reviews on the new shows that I watch as I did with Casshern Sins, Toradora! and Hyakko, so expect this weekend to a spam-like one! I’ll write them first in order of starting-date and then by their first letters. Click on the titles for more information on the show on it’s repsective Wikipedia page or on the [ANN] for their respective Anime News Network encyclopedia page.

This has probably taken me more than two hours! XD
I hope not. Anyway, this is (as I’ve said before) way too much to start watching it all, but I’ll check out at least a few more of them and I will of course leave a few words for each of them. Until then, don’t start more than you can handle! :)

Toradora! – Episode 1

4 10 2008

This is the second of four new anime shows I picked up today, all of them new this autumn. Unlike the artwork and story of Casshern Sins (read previous entry) I really loved all about this show! Toradora! has great art (that also resembles the art of one of my other favorite shows, Katekyo Hitman REBORN!) and, even though the ending suggests it is a developing harem story which I usually don’t like (To LOVEる has it’s moments though), has a great story so far and will hopefully stick to it. Right?

Anyway, unlike Casshern Sins (unless you’re a huge fan of bug-eyed robot-men in white tights no matter the story or progress), Toradora! is a complete must-see, and if you don’t you will probably end up regretting it all your life. So do yourself a favor, and at least check it out! I hope you, as well as I did, will like love it. :)

Summary and idiotic comments.

So, the anime starts with two cute birds (unlike the parrot we’ll meet later …) on an electrical wire (right?). It’s a cute scene until they get shocked and fall, grilled, to the ground.

“I don’t like my new hairstyle. >_>;”

And as if it weren’t enough he has awesome blue hair, he has the hottest mom ever as well. I wonder if the fact that she’s your mother would ruin seeing even her naked after a shower or by whatever twist of fate …

No, it wouldn’t. She’s not only the hottest mom ever, but she is also the cutest mom ever. GAH!! That’s unfairness for you (one of the reasons I usually hate harem anime).

Too bad she’s a prostitute …

… and formerly married to this love-to-hate lecherous guy.

Can’t you see it’s driving your son insane?


Oh yeah, an extra from Akira has sneaked into this production as well.

Oh my … GOD! Unfairness to real life strikes again!

Now I’m almost getting mad but the tears in her eyes make my unable to.

Initiating moe … please wait …

Otaku love for the win! MOE!

Otaku love for the win, yeah. Exactly. To be honest, harem anime is unfair to real life (I just can’t stress that enough). No wonder otakus develops into sociopath hikikomoris that only waste their time watching lolicon hentai and porn … Ah, who cares, we only have one life to ruin socially, right? (Stay away from harem anime at least one week every two months and you should be alright. I pray.)
Enough joking (although it lies some truth in it), it’s time for you guys who haven’t already to watch Toradora! episode 1 NOW! Okay? Do we have a deal? No we don’t! Just watch it, alright?

…. I’m tired.

P.S. I’m also gonna try and watch Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka and Hyakko before next day comes, but I won’t write anything about them (meaning I will). See you! ^^
