A bit bored before I go to bed for the night so I'll drop in my seasonal anime activity. Doesn't take too much effort to do this since I can just copy-pasta from my discussions with friends online. Here goes...
~Fall 2014 results~
Sword Art Online II - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10376
Finished up. A lot better then I had originally hoped! I actually liked it better (as a whole) then season 1. Gun Gale Arc was fun and exciting! Sawashiro was awesome as always. The mini Calibur arc was fun but laid back. Almost like watching a fantasy OVA with a nice budget. Then the Mother's Rosario arc was really moving to me. (Why are all these characters so cool?!?)
Gugure! Kokkuri-san - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10530
Kinda wacky but fun series with characters I liked. Kinda cliched tho... A lot of the episodes were following a typical anime formula. Not much original about it but I was okay with most of the tropes used.
Denki-gai no Hon`ya-san - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10619
Very otakuish, Nice colorful show. Made me laugh. Easy to watch. I figured I was gonna enjoy it and it lived up to my expectations.
Sora no Method - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10525
I really wanted to love this more! Liked the animation and loved the music. (Best ED song of the season IMO) Liked the character designs and premise but it wasn't executed too well. Particularly the ending. What was up with those last 2 episodes? Episode 11 would've been an okay ending for the series. I don't mind the forced drama too much. I got through Anohana and Kokoro Connect with no problems, but this show was really pushing the limits the whole way through. It's like they kept pressing the reset button on the character development. Still thought it was a fairly good series though, some of the episodes really pulled me in. So I'll probly keep getting suckered into these types of shows.
Inou Battle in Everyday Life - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10509
Finally got it done and it was fairly enjoyable. The male lead is one of the best of the past year. He was pretty cool and for once I can see why all the girls love him!
Amagi Brilliant Park - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10399
Great show! Another good male lead too and just a lot of fun. Never missed an episode on a weekly basis cause it was just wicked easy to watch. Wicked funny! Nice conclusion too. Another job well done Kyoto!
Hi-sCoool! SeHa Girls - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10592
I thought it was a fun show! It was a lot like Gdgd Fairies which I also really enjoyed and the Sega references added a lot of nostalgia and laughs.
Danna ga Nani - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10676
cute and fun, but other then a few hilarious references in the first half I don't think it'll be too memorable for me. Apparently it's getting a 2nd season.
Still behind on this stuff carrying over to next season....
The 7 Deadly Sins - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10596
10 eps watched. Still think its a fun shounen adventure show with over-powered characters but good art.
Shirobako - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10779
Only 6 eps done. An anime about anime production. Don't hate it but I don't find it all that intriguing. It's too real lifeish for me. I'm getting back to it now tho as I'm starting the new season stuffs.
Sailor Moon Crystal - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....e&aid=9306
Only 7 eps done. The slow release along with all the other shows I let stall for a while made it easy to forget about. heh heh....
~Winter 2015 picks and early impressions~
Oh man.... This is gonna be a friggin weird season.....
Gourmet Girl Graffiti - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10684
The only show I have confidence in so far. In fact my bias tells me it's almost undoubtedly gonna end up being my favorite this season. I love you SHAFT. Keep up the head tilts and erotic eating animation...
Military - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10751
A short episodes series. It's stupid but watchable I guess. Kinda reminds me of Kill me Baby.
Junketsu no Maria - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10178
I got good vibes from the first episode and enjoyed it, it was fun, not too serious or too silly. A little fan-servicey but not forcefully/painfully so. Story might be interesting. I think I'm really gonna like the Maria character tho. I like her attitude, she's a cutie and her poofy blond hair is delicious!
The Rolling Girls - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10784
What.... the..... heck... is this!?! First episode was all over the place and filled with over the top fighting sequences. No idea what's going on here. I'm probably only going to be giving it one more episode.....
Yurikuma Arashi - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10811
I do like the visuals and I love the music but that's about it. Apparently its the same guy that did Penguindrum and Revolutionary Girl Utena. (Neither of which I've watched yet and now I'm not sure I will) Cause I'm pretty close to dropping this show. I'm already struggling with its formula at episode 2.
With these kinda awful prospects, I'm feeling more motivated to get back to last season's carry-overs I'm behind on. I think it's also likely that I'll go back through whats out there and pick up a couple more shows...
Saenai Heroine - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10538
A noitaminA otaku rom-com show. (I was originally intending to pass it over...)
Death Parade - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....&aid=10905
A maybe. Death Billiards was pretty cool. Still thinking about it.
~My other recent projects~
Bamboo Blade - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....e&aid=5356
Slice of life comedy about a kendo club. Enjoying the series quite a bit. I'm almost half done it.
Black Lagoon and Roberta's Blood Trail - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....e&aid=3395
Watched the last parts of it that were animated so I've finished all the material. Pretty awesome gunfights and action. Really badass characters. Alot of fun to watch. Roberta is my favorite character. She's like a female Terminator!
Watched the rest of the eX-Driver stuff too.
Fun and a bit over the top (in a good way), but the early 00's CG really looks ugly now....
Hyakko - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....e&aid=5910
Nice, funny slice of life series with a colorful and unique cast. Really enjoyed it.
Santa Company - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....e&aid=9516
Goofy 30 minute Xmas OVA. Worth a quick watch
The Star of Cottonland - http://anidb.net/perl-bin/anim.....e&aid=3575
Awesome moe' 80's catgirl that loves her savior/new owner and wants to become human. I loved it! It was adorable.
