Anime Fall 2008 – Part 1

12 10 2008

Well, techincally, maybe this shouldn’t be called part 1 seeing as I have already made reviews of Casshern Sins, Toradora!, Hyakko, Linebarrels of Iron and Chäos;HEAd; but it is the first part of my series of “new anime season fall 2008” entries. I will with these make several, shorter reviews of the new series this season without lots of screenshots and unneccessary talk; however, a few screenshots will be added. I think.
I’ll be using a rating system of five possible stars as I always do. If the star is in-between parenthesis () it means that I’m not completely sure whether to give it, for example, three or four stars; it can also mean I want to possibly give it one more as the story progresses or that I think the series maybe doesn’t deserve that last in-parenthesis star.

Tales of the Abyss, yet another game-inspired anime – that isn’t crap. I have only seen two episodes so far (the third will have to wait for next weekend) but I can tell you already that it is going to be worthwhile watching it to the end. Unless they figure out some way to successfully ruin it and make it a fiasco, but can any man do that? I hope not. Tale of the Abyss, although I haven’t played the actual game, as a relative to my absolute favorite game through all the ages, Tales of Symphonia, was not in any way going to get by me without me having a look-see first, and now, after I’ve seen the anime, I won’t rest until I’ve played the game also! Now, where can I get my hands on the game? Is it to Playstation 2? Gah, too much to find out! :D

What can I say? It’s definitely not what I had thought when I downloaded it … It’s a chibi harem series, for crying out loud! I was hoping for a magic-school kind of anime (not a Negima! kind), but instead I got stuck with this? It was okay and it had it’s hilarious moments, but this is probably not a show I’m going to continue watching. As I’ve already told you before I don’t often like harem series, and this didn’t seem interesting at all, but I’ll try to watch at least one or two more episodes before I make up my mind completely. WASSHOI!

Kannagi … yet another must-see. See it and laugh or ignore it and regret. Kannagi is truly hilarious at moments and yet funny at others. I can’t even give you a summary, you will have to see this yourself!

Rating:

Shikabane. Shikabane Hime. Shikabane Hime: Aka. I still don’t know what the Aka is for, but we’ll probably (not) get an explanation for that later. Shikabane Hime: Aka is, I think, a typical Gainax production: great, interesting, amazing and to weird and complicated for even Stephen Hawking to understand. Just as it’s supposed to be. Shikabane Hime: Aka, as well as Tales of the Abyss, Toradora!, Hyakko and Kannagi, is definitely a show that I’m going to follow to the end. Way to go, Gainax!

That’s all I’ve got for you today, but please check back during the coming week and weekend as I will be writing more as soon as possible; however, there won’t be any anime reviews until next weekend as I can’t watch any until then. Have a good end of the weekend and don’t let the upcoming week be a letdown as well – watch lots of anime and stay in school!





The end of the destruction.

5 10 2008

Another show that has ended now as the new anime season of Fall 2008 is, based on the game with the same name, World Destruction. Every time an anime show that I’m watching ends I get sad, mostly because the endings are often sad. But at least we get a whole load of new shows, a list of which can be found in the previous entry. After three months of great entertainment I think World Destruction deserves a memorial, especially with that awesome then wonderful ending of theirs, so here it is: a Memorial for the Destruction of the World!

OBS! If you haven’t already seen World Destruction, see it and view the memorial afterwards!

A Memorial for the Destruction of the World!

Kyrie is the real Destruct Code!

I’ll kiss you if you spare the world, Destruct Code-san.

Please …?

Naww, just look at this scene! <3

Farewell, World Destruction. (Live happily together!)
