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.
In a disturbing twist, we are moving on to the season of harems! Unlike the previous season, I’m not really feeling this lineup here. Although some of these do have some nice potential, I do feel that the lack of diversity here is going to make it seem like I’m watching the same harem anime over and over again. Oh well, Yuruyuri is back so who really cares!
For those curious about my Diablo 3 progress, I made $40.00 off Diablo 3’s real money auction house. Nyaruko nendoroid, I’m going to take you home!
As usual, it is a slow summer for anime. Many competing titles fighting over marketable characters this season, with few shows having anything else to offer or be worth the time it takes to watch them. Other than Moyashimon I am hoping for a better fall and going to mostly skip this season.
With all the complaining we’ve been doing recently for anime, this season manages to entertain me! It’s been awhile since I’ve had an overall positive reaction to a season as a whole so I’m a bit ecstatic with the comedic lineup this season. With a few seinen titles to add some slightly serious drama to my list, moe, cute and comedy rule this season with an iron fist. But then again, Diablo 3 is currently ruling my life with an iron fist >_O. I have a feeling inferno mode fried my brain so much that I’ve reverted to my former moe-loving levels!
Certainly this is one of the better seasons we have had for anime in recent years, although there are still plenty of shows that are sub part to say the least there are also more than usual worth the time it takes to watch them. I can only hope the series continue to be worthwhile right up to the end instead of falling into the ever so typical pitfalls nearing the end of short one season series. I would probably have more to say here and in general if it were not for TERA abusing my free time with its delectable goodness, ah games the bane of free time.
Whenever the winter season ends, I weep at the upcoming spring posts. So many series to write up on…. the previous winter season was heaven! Well, it was more heaven than normal since we had less to write about :3. At least with this bigger lineup, maybe I’ll spend more time being entertained this time around. Aside from the return of the popular Fate Zero, I am noticeably interested in the seinen series that are popping up this season. Either way, the impressions post will probably take a lot longer to do this time x_x;; And sorry for the late post!
This season is too long, it really is so I decided to just be short and too the point. Or rather after writing a few comments and feeling as though I had gotten nowhere on a post that was keeping me from playing the games I wanted to I decided to spend my time wisely and be as blunt as possible. Don’t expect too much in the way of commentary till the impressions post when the list can be narrowed down even further to the select animes worth noting. At least half the post delay is thanks to my reading eroge, also the reason I didn’t put as much effort in as I probably should have, oh well. It is not entirely my fault however as I did not expect to be drawn into a game such that I did not want to put it down when only looking for a quick fifteen or so minute run through to get a feel for it.
Sometimes I wonder if seasons can get more awful than the worst ones I’ve encountered, and then I find out that it can! Although a small number of series hold interest, and I mean 1-2, I can easily forget about everything on this list here. But I have to say that I’m getting even less interested in anime nowadays. It’s now harder for me to watch anime, and I have to make some effort to go through certain series. I didn’t really think it would happen, but perhaps I’m growing out of this. Rather than getting burnt out, I’ve become an old and bitter person. Yet this nendoroid collection continues to grow T_T
Also of note, we probably hit the record for our huge number of dropped series.
I should probably say more here but the sooner I finish writing this the sooner I can go playing the third installment of a certain game and so rather than proofread and type out a paragraph highlighting my thoughts on this season I will say I dropped a lot, boring season happy gaming now ensues.
