Motherless Dayby Panadero - May 12, 2013 11:02:30 AM MST
Today's update falls on Mother's Day, which is interesting given there's almost no motherly presence in any of the series we've added.
First we have the lovely Watashi no Ashinaga Ojisan, an older anime about an orphan gaining the ability to attend high school in New York thanks to an anonymous benefactor. Based on a book and part of the World Masterpiece Theater franchise, it was impossible to not fall in love with the main protagonist Judy.
Next is Tamako Market, the recent Kyoto Animation series about a family of mochi makers in a shopping center. I love KyoAni and I love their moe shows, but this one fell a little short for me. The characters lacked that spark that makes the casts of K-ON! and Lucky Star so engaging, and by the time the chemistry started working really well, the show ended. It was still a good show but a disappointment by KyoAni standards.
Third is Sasami-san@Ganbaranai, a Shaft show that by my account wasn't received too well, but it has its good points. All of the standard Shaft and Akiyuki Shinbo tricks are present but in a more subdued way, and I really liked the alternative ways they structured some episodes. I want to see more of the world they presented, but I somehow doubt there'll be more animated.
Lastly, we have Little Busters!, the latest offering from Key, about a group of childhood friends. I came into it with zero expectations and I have no experience with the source material. I had completely forgotten about Key's patent for 'Sad Girls in Snow', so when the drama started, the gut-punch was hard. Now I'm waiting for the second season to hopefully resolve things because I liked the cast.
The end result is twenty six new characters, so hug your mothers and then get to voting!
Friendship wins! Flawless victory.by buckminst - April 28, 2013 12:12:16 PM MST
The power of friendship can conquer all, from invading aliens to societal prejudices. Such is the case in our latest update, featuring the girls of Kotoura-san and Vividred Operation!
Kotoura-san is a charming little anime about a girl with the psychic ability to read minds, and how the power of friendship helps her come to terms with her ability and shows her that she doesn't have to be alone in the world because of it.
Vividred Operation is a lighthearted action comedy that some people have called 'Strike Witches meets Nanoha'. All I can say is it was a fun watch that mashes up sentai shows, magical girl transformation sequences, high tech power suits, and symmetrical docking. And at least one beam cannon.
Be these girls' friend too, and go vote for them! It doesn't take a mindreader to know you already want to!
Also, we have a new poll! Our last poll asked about your favorite Yuki Kajiura soundtrack, and it looks like many of you have already made a contract with Kyubey, as 'Puella Magi Madoka Magica' wins with over 40% of you voting for it.
Our new poll will be looking at which hot-and-cold girl alternatively beats you into submission and lovingly tends to your wounds thereafter. That's right, it's a poll about tsunderes. But you don't have to vote. We only put that poll up for ourselves, it's n-not like we like y-you or anything...
Adjective Noun Nameby Panadero - March 26, 2013 5:35:47 PM MST
I totally didn't know what I was getting into when I had the idea for this entry, which would focus on titles that follow the common naming convention of 'Adjective Noun Name'. Higher profile examples include Revolutionary Girl Utena and Neon Genesis Evangelion. I'm too pooped to provide even basic character descriptions, so here's a list of series we've added that follow this convention at least reasonably closely:
