Another season, another great set of anime. Here’s the ones I’ve watched~
This was probably one of my favorite shows this season, and I don’t even know why. The story is nothing special. It actually just feels like a stringing together of one random fight after another. They kill monsters, they kill enemies, and sometimes they kill each other. It’s really not that interesting, but then again, there’s something about this show that just gets me addicted.
I’m quite happy this has some more episodes in store for us. Now please let us see some more of Akame!
Despite what everyone else says about Sword Art Online, I’m a big fan of it. I especially liked the feeling of the first season, with them being in mostly really bright and colorful looking environments in the games. In the second season, however, the whole setting changes to a really dark, eerie, and even creepy atmosphere. I can’t say that I really liked this change, but it’s also not like I disliked it.
Also, changing Kirito’s character into a “girl” was probably not the best choice, but it was certainly more pleasant than seeing him as a guy. 😛
Also Sinon is HNNNNNGH~
I will say a little more about this show in my full review of it, but right now, let’s just say that I expected way more. Hanayamata started out so nicely. The comedy was good, the characters were cute and enjoyable, but somewhere along the way, the show lost its touch for me.
While I was anticipating the releases of each and every new episode during the first few weeks, I didn’t even bother watching the few last ones…. It’s weird how my motivation to watch this show almost dropped to zero midway through.
After episode one, I had high hopes for this show. We got to see Kaguya and Yomi again, which was already a big surprise, and the whole first episode in general looked really epic and promising. But then, the second episode happened, and all my hopes for the show more or less vanished.
Instead of the action-packed human vs. espers anime that I thought I would get, I got a show about a flying penguin named Peggy…. Well, of course, I’m playing it down, and the fighting picked up again in the later episodes, but I can’t really say that my excitement returned at any point of the show.
I have mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, the whole setup of this anime looked freaking promising, and I bet I wasn’t the only one who expected something epic. But then again, even though this feeling didn’t vanish even until the very last episode, it was exactly that episode that destroyed everything for me.
I mean, we pretty much weren’t able to understand much about the two main characters for like 90% of the whole show, but that last episode that should actually reveal their secrets, revealed something that wasn’t even that important. Their whole reason behind this big mess was just… plain stupid. What a disappointing ending….
This season, I was probably the most excited about this show. The first episode alone made me crave more, and even though it couldn’t keep up the level of awesomeness it showed us in the first episode, it still delivered most of the time.
It was cruel, exciting, thrilling, and best of all, even after this epic last episode, we can expect more, and I surely want to see more!
Yet again, this show had an amazing start. I think I never laughed as much as I did during the first three episodes of this show. It had great characters, even better comedy, and you knew that this show was so random that basically anything could happen. For a comedy show, these are probably the best requirements, but even so, the quality of this show gradually dropped after episode 3.
It dropped so low that after episode 8, I just didn’t bother watching it anymore. What a pity….
The shows that I either dropped or just put on hold this season are only Barakamon and Sabagebu!.
