Not a great season by far, but at least Silver Spoon and Uchoten Kazoku managed to wiggle its way in and provide me some comfort. As my workload has ramped up, I won’t be able to watch as many anime as I used to, and of course all the conventions are taking its toll on me. Oh well, at least the tanukis, pigs, and dogs will suffice for now.
At least better than last season as with Wanko it has become more and more difficult to find time to watch sub par series. It is one thing to spend the time on something enjoyable, but a few hours a week on what is mostly garbage is kind of hard to deal with. Thankfully there were a few shows that were well worth it this season. Although I cannot guarantee we will keep it up much longer if at all due to time, I would like to apologize for the delay of this post, mostly my fault this time since things kept coming up to take over the time i allocated to writing.
One day, this wanko will try cosplaying… but that will be another story. The last time I visited the anime expo convention was during 2007, when Aya Hirano was at the peak of her popularity and had visited the convention with her main female cast members. I can still remember my flesh searing under the hot sun as I waited in line only to get informed my hours of patience would bear no fruit.
I was originally planning to sit this one out, but I had to accompany a few friends and guide them to their first anime convention. Rather than guide, more like dump them into the convention as I run off to hunt for figures! Well, let’s jump into this shall we? And a warning to all, there’s quite a lot of pictures in here.. and video too! I just couldn’t take my hands off the camera ;_;
Need more anime with dogs, now! That aside, this season is full of fun and amusement for those looking for loli love and cute girls doing cute things. I’m sort of going to miss the spring season, after seeing this lineup. But either way, they finally gave me a dog anime! Anyway, I’ll be heading to the Anime Expo convention this week, perhaps I’ll do a post on that and include lots of pictures!
Need more anime worth watching, now!
There aren’t much shows that really stand out this season besides Shingeki no Kyojin, but as usual there are lots of cute and moe shows for those who wish to succumb to the desires of 2D.
Not the best season but not the worst season either, at least there are some shows worth watching this time around.
We’re back again! This post is probably going to be slightly late as we’re all getting really busy! But that aside, there is a larger amount of sci fi anime coming out in the spring. As much as I wanted it to happen, the selection isn’t exactly impressive. Although I do think age and real life is taking its toll on me, I still do hope to see anime reach a new golden age. So far as it stands, I’m having more fun rewatching Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Late and totally not my fault.. maybe… Regardless of my busy schedule or lazy lack of care towards anime that haven’t done much to inspire confidence of late I guess I am sorry for causing the post to be late. All that said this season is the very least better than the previous by a noticeable margin. While we have yet to truly break free of the moe slice of life and romance comedy variations there are at least more options to choose from this season. It is very nice to see an increase in science fiction, although to be honest most of them are pretty bad there is hope that with enough series being thrown out there will be some good shows mixed in eventually.
I wonder if we’ll ever see a return to a more diverse anime package for a season. Besides Maoyuu, everything else is just there to fill up and drain those minutes of the day when you’re bored. In a way that’s not so bad, but it would better if I could just watch something that would remind me of why I started watching anime in the first place. Come on, how about more anime where the characters actually face a real crisis other than trying to make friends or the like >_O. Either way, these 3 minute anime shorts are a great way for me to entertain myself while waiting for a ranked game to start in league of legends!
Worst season in recent memory. Even the shows or well show I was looking forward to turned out to be a disappointment. Seasons like this are why I don’t pay as much attention to anime anymore. Sure it is more popular, but there just isn’t much worth the time anymore for this medium. I can only hope the piles of garbage anime helps kill off some of the excess popularity for the sake of emphasis on quality again.
Moe and romance comedy reigns supreme. I don’t hate moe anime, but sometimes there is too much of a good thing. As much as I like eating donuts, I can’t eat a full box of them T_T; I remember the days when I could completely look forward to all the moe anime offerings. >_O;; In other news, I just purchased Nendoroid Hatsune Miku v2.0…. how many Mikus must I own?
This season is not so much bad as gives one the impression every studio bought the same anime color by numbers kit and were a little more liberal on what colors the numbers defined so as to be unique. At this point I am not even asking for anything good, or even something decent, I only want there to be a tiny bit of variety, anything not moe or romance comedy. That doesn’t seem like too much to ask, does it?
Unfortunately, I don’t have that many series viewed this time around since I had to move into a new house during the past few weeks. Still busy sorting things out and failing at my attempts with ranked games in LoL, but finally…. I now have room to buy a DETOLF case from IKEA! Or perhaps something even bigger… Time to bring the nendoroids out of their boxes ^_____^
Boring season with not much to stand out, the best series in my eyes is still Jormungand although I am not watching till its complete and I can finish it all at once. Most are generally lackluster though, falling into the same stale cliches despite a few unique ideas and settings that could have spiced things up sadly.
After looking at this list here, I’ll add moe shows Joshiraku and Oda Nobuna no Yabou to my backlog >_>; It’s getting harder to watch anime when all you see is the same thing. I might as well give most of these an episode 1 watch, but I do wonder how many will survive long enough to make it to the impressions list or the skim and garbage pile. Oh well, I am excited about one series in particular; Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure! As a fan of the manga, I can’t wait to finally see all the arcs animated. WRRRRRRRYYYYYY
Ah another season down and a new one freshly lined up to take its place. While there are a few shows that will be good this season there are many more that feel as though they could go either way, which kind of sucks for me since that usually means they end up terrible thanks to bad decisions by the staff who made them. It is nice to have some hope for a season with so many bad seasons both with anime and the eroge sides of things.
Here’s a summary chart and unfortunately no preview from Random Curiosity yet. We sure pushed this post out a lot faster this time!
As I expected, this season of harem anime has really limited my viewing options. All I am mainly left with are moe shows, which do get tiresome eventually. At the very least, I am thankful that Sword Art Online is part of this season’s lineup as I feel my brain would rot even more just by watching only these cute and adorable moe shows >_O;
What a terrible season, just finding something to watch is pretty near impossible. If it were not for my habit of watching shows while writing posts or playing games as a little extra entertainment of sorts then I would most likely be unable to watch anything from this season. Sure there were a few series like Moyashimon that had potential to be so much better, but unfortunately its like they made them bad on purpose just to fit in with the rest of the terrible shows this season.
