I am now going to use this original creation of mine every chance I get.
Kenzen Robo Daimidaler is a new idea, that’s for sure.
Well, with the exception of a few outliers, nearly every anime of the season has started airing. Here’s my first impressions of each of them:
Abarenbou Kishi: A show about an asshole being an asshole. Quick-drop.
Akuma no Riddle: At first I thought it was Danganronpa turned on its head, but episode two shows a different tale: a classroom of eleven assassins after one target, aided by the twelfth assassin who defected.
Baby Steps: I hate sports. With a passion. The only reason I give Hajime no Ippo attention is because of dick jokes. Dropped.
Black Bullet: The industry’s got enough “humanity on the brink of extinction’s only hope is people with special powers” stories, and I see nothing distinguishing this one from the others. Dropped.
Blade and Soul: Well, I like the concept. I’ll give it a view for now.
Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou: A comedy anime that’s decent enough.
Gimme a few laughs, Wynaut.
Captain Earth: Mech anime, so major points right there, and the animation is GREAT, because of course it is, it’s a mech anime, mech anime are top-of-the-line in animation quality. Show me this goodness.
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka: Completely shallow and plotless, designed entirely to cater to Type B Otaku. Buuuut, eh, I’m not hating it. YET.
Gokukoku no Brynhildr: The animation is good, and there hasn’t really been enough of the plot shown yet to tell whether or not it’ll be good, so I’ll have to at least wait a while.
Haikyuu: A men’s volleyball anime. As if sports anime weren’t bad enough. Dropped.
Hero Bank: A children’s Sat-AM style anime adapted from a children’s video game. Dropped.
Hitsugi no Chaika: I like the animation, and it looks promising. However, it’s only scheduled for 12 episodes, I’m forseeing a case of One-season Syndrome.
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san: A 3-minute series of generic comedy, it at least hasn’t given me reason to drop it yet.
Isshukan Friends: The weekly memory loss idea was new to me, but the appication didn’t seem very great. Dropped.
Kamigami no Asobi: A random girl suddenly being given a harem of bishie gods? The shameless fangirl-baiting is strong with this one. However, it looks like it may actually have a plot, a rare sight for harem anime, so I’ll watch it until I confirm whether or not I’m right.
Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraetara: Bad animation, bad writing, and stupid concept. Dropped.
Kenzen Robo Daimidaler: Mech powered by boners? Well, that’s a new one. Let’s see.
Kiniro no Corda: Blue Sky: This one makes sure to warn me right away of what it was by having the very first sound be a violin. I’ve got no interest in an anime revolving around classical music, but thanks for warning me.
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei: A magic-learning high school is far from the most original idea, but as a proud siscon, I approve of the brocon female lead. Show me you’re not a clone, I’ll give you the chance.
Mahou Shoujo Taisen: Magical girl lameness in 3-mintue bites. Dropped.
Majin Bone: It seems like a more mature version of Hero Bank, complete with having also been adapted from a video game. It hasn’t actually made me bored yet, so I’ll give it a try for now.
Mangaka-san to Assistant-to: An anime about a manga artist is new to me, and he’s the awesome kind of pervert I could hang out with. Watching.
No Game No Life: A world revolving around games seems cheesy, but it’s ALL games, not just video games, and it seems to actually take it seriously, so it could be good.
Ping Pong the Animation: What. The. Actual. Fuck. Why would anyone make this? Ever? What the fuck in the nine flaming hells is wrong with them? The only reason I’m not giving this a 1/10 like Hetalia is because I don’t rate anime I dropped.
Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin: A ghost roommate, and a cute otaku one at that. Wynaut?
Seikoku no Dragonar: People partner up with dragons to fight, and the main character’s dragon is a pink-haired girl? Prove to me you’re not a Dragonaut ripoff. Seriously, I’ll watch you, dragons are awesome. Prove you’re your own story.
Selector Infected WIXOSS: The main weakness of card-battling anime is that everyone and their mother will think “Yu-Gi-Oh! ripoff”. Looking at it from the perspective of a card-battling anime, I’m not interested. The thing about Yu-Gi-Oh! is that no matter how oulandish the card effects are, everything is clearly explained. That is not the case here. Dropped.
Sidonia no Kishi: Even for a mech anime, this looks pretty scifi. Watching.
Soredemo Sekai wa Ustukushii: A princess goes to meet her betrothed in the pilot, with writing that all seems very unoriginal. Dropped.
Soul Eater Not!: I was already hyped for this Soul Eater spin-off, but it exceeded my expectations. Great animation, and just seeing the cast of the first series brought a smile to my face. It starts out so early in Soul Eater that Sid is still ALIVE, so we can expect the events of the first series to influence the second series as it goes on, which will be pretty interesting.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V: Contrary to what I was told, the protag was NOT a female. Just like in 5D’s, we’re shown a new type of duel that could never be done in the real world: Action Duels, and we’re given a new type of Summon: Pendulum Summon, where instead of summoning ONE monster as with the other main types of summon, the focus is on summoning MULTIPLE. It reminds me most of 5D’S, and 5D’s was best Yu-Gi-Oh!.
Here’s to more Date A Live, one of the few harem anime I’ve seen to actually have a plot.
Soul Eater Not! has arrived and I can’t wait to see how it’ll be.
What is this, Lugia meat?
(I call for the return of the Ramsay meme! This meme is awesome!)
Arc V is the first Yu-Gi-Oh! series to feature a female protag. I’ll admit I’m curious.
I Heartfilia Fairy Tail, and for it to resume now, *sniff* there’s just so many people I’d like to thank!
Thank you Funimation simulcasts for not making me wait until tomorrow. I love you people.
Ichiya is awesome. Men!
