Hot Update for the Sweltering Summerby Panadero - July 23, 2016 3:16:50 PM MST
Looks like we finally got ourselves another update, and right in the middle of a brutal summer. Let's see what's new, shall we?
First up, we have the fun Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!, a slice-of-life series about the efforts of a group of girls to restore fun and pride to their school. Even though it aired before the moe trend was in full force, it catpures a lot of that style, and though there wasn't much to the series, it was a nice diversion.
Next we have the oddball short-form series Himegoto, in which a male student is obliged to cross-dress as a girl in return for the student council paying off his insurmountable debt. The four-to-five minute episode lengths were just enough for the humor to not grow too stale, even though it felt like the series focused just a bit too much on inflicting shame and embarrassment on the main character.
I've also added characters from Go! Princess Precure to the Pretty Cure entry. While I'm still waiting for a Pretty Cure series to recapture the magic of Heartcatch, this series was quite fun if a bit by the numbers. Haruka really grew on me by the end.
Lastly, I've added the characters from Rozen Maiden Zurückspulen to the Rozen Maiden entry. I finally got around to watching the series recently and was overall happy with it. Though it felt very slow in the first half, it was great to see the dolls back again (particularly Suiseiseki and Kanaria, my favorites).
Have fun voting, and stay cool out there!
First Update of 2016by Panadero - April 24, 2016 11:29:59 AM MST
I feel like I have to apologize again for the lack of updates. My time to watch anime has greatly decreased lately, and often when I have had the time, I haven't been in the mood. I don't know if and when things will pick up but I still have a huge backlog of stuff to watch so it's not as if I'm short on material. That said, let's go over today's update:
First up is the wonderful, melodramatic, and wonderfully melodramatic Dear Brother, focusing on the various dramas an emotional girl deals with as she is selected to join an elite group in school called The Sorority. The show is so unabashedly soap opera-like, yet I still couldn't help but get hooked on it. There's something about longer series from the early 90s that really felt like they did character development in a very satisfying way.
Next we have the very charming Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, a recent series that follows the life of a student in her art club who unintentionally gets roped into assisting with manga production with the guy she has a crush on. The cast was both funny and endearing, playing on and defying common tropes. Definitely recommended as a relaxing show to binge.
We also have the most recent KyoAni series, Myriad Colors Phantom World, a show I have mixed feelings about. In fact, I have the same kind of mixed feelings about a number of KyoAni shows that tread a bit outside of their traditional strengths, such as Beyond the Border and Amagi Brilliant Park: I'm happy that they're expanding their repertoire by covering different genres and story tones, but there's something about them that doesn't get me deeply emotionally invested in them like I can with shows such as K-On, Free, Sound! Euphonium, and the like. That said, there was enough in this series to feel like a second season would substantially help me get more invested in the world and characters. As it is, I'm much more excited for the second season of Euphonium in October.
Lastly, I added a new character who appears in the second season of Is the Order a Rabbit?.
Happy Holidays, Everybody!by Panadero - December 16, 2015 9:27:02 PM MST
Excuse me while I squeak in a rare update before the year is over! I'd try to tie the series I've added together by saying they all have supernatural elements, but that's fairly common in anime so I won't try to stretch things too much.
First up is Demonbane, the...interesting mech series from about ten years ago. I'd be willing to give the benefit of the doubt to the visual novel upon which it's based and the idea of using Lovecraftian themes and creatures as a base is cool, but the anime itself didn't quite do much for me.
Next, we have the enjoyable Engaged to the Unidentified, in which a teenage girl abruptly disovers that she is engaged when her fiance and his little sister move in. Fun comedy, a great cast, and just enough potential romance to feel quite right at twelve episodes - I had a great time watching this. Mashiro stole every scene she was in with her facial reactions.
Next we have (what is technically season one of) RIN-NE, the adaptation of Rumiko Takahashi's currently running manga about a girl who can see spirits and the destitute shinigami she befriends. It took a bit to hit its stride, but if you're a fan of Takahashi's style and aren't expecting Ranma-level absurdity, you'll probably enjoy this too. I'm looking forward to season two.
Next is School-Live!, a series a friend recommended to me and that I watched completely blind. I have to say that I was hooked immediately after the reveal in episode one. All I can say without spoilers is that it follows the daily lives of a group of girls whose club entails them living at school. Definitely a recommended watch and one of the better newer series I've seen lately.
Lastly, I've added Reema, the new character from the Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet OAV.
I hope everybody has a great winter season and New Year's, and I'll see everybody in 2016!
