Pretty self explainable from the title. I’m just going to mention the best and worst anime so far from this season.
1. Pandora Hearts
I was not a fan of this show after the first episode, but I’ll admit, it’s gotten better and better and the story has started to develop nicely. It looks like it could actually be pretty damn good too. Particularly, I like the mix of humor and Alice. Alice rules (I think I’ve said that once or twice or every single post I make about Pandora Hearts).
2. Sengoku Basara
Bang-out. Blammy. Boom shaka laka. This show rules. Here’s why:
- Historical characters from feudal Japan (Sengoku Period)
- Sick fight scenes
- Sick characters
The only reason it’s two is because the fighting hasn’t been as awesome in the past two episodes, something that I’m sure will change.
3. Asura Cryin’
Despite the occasionally shitty animation, I still think that this anime is damn good. I was ecstatic after the first episode, and while I may have jumped the gun a bit on that aspect, I certainly wasn’t wrong in that this anime is one of my favorites. I feel like it doesn’t get enough credit, even from me. Misao is becoming one of my favorite characters of the season, I just wish Tomo would cut that strand of hair. God it looks dumb.
Fucking shitty. Never before have I seen such a promising anime turn to a pile of shit as fast as this show. I mean, you’ve got Boomerang Girl, Heterochromian Girl, and then Bandage Girl all in one show, and you turn it into a jumbled mess of crap. This show was so shitty and boring that I dropped it before I saw episode 6, which I am HIGHLY against doing.
2. 07 Ghost
I finally got through episode 2. It took 3 weeks. This show SUCKS. I mean, it’s focus is girls (it’s a shoujo anime after all), so that could be a reason why I don’t like all the gay shit, but the plot is so slow moving that I can’t even get through an episode without leaving my computer and doing other things. Shitty. Eventually I’ll get there, maybe in a few years I’ll watch another episode.
3. Queen’s Blade
Even though it’s probably the most entertaining, due to it’s ridiculous amount of fanservice, which I find funny as midgets trying to score on Dwight Howard Chris Andersen (he’s fucking better). It’s a shitty show, so it gets the proper slot. But it’s fun to watch, so it’s number 3….I wish Reina (pictured scantily clad in above picture) would just die. She sucks.
Shows I Decided to hold off on until they’re complete:
I don’t know shit about Mahjong. Supposedly it’s like Gin Rummy. I don’t know how to play that either (wait, yes I do, I played it every night last summer). I need to learn Mahjong first. Chances are I never will.
2. Natsu no Arashi!
Well, I’ll watch it eventually, right now I’m just too preoccupied.
Shows That Are Teetering:
It’s turning into a broken record, especially Mio, the shittiest character ever (that’s right, she sucks). K-ON! Has fallen from it’s high horse, and is getting crappier every episode. As of now, I still like it, but who knows where the road goes. If they add more Sawako Sensei, it can be good. The best parts about this are the OP and the ED.
2. Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~
Besides the fact that it uses the word “Phantom” twice in it’s title, this show has been stalled by the last two episodes, both fillers, a few more episodes like that and it could be looking up at it’s body from a basket (guillotine reference).
I should mention that I have been mainly watching the following three shows, Touch, Yu Yu Hakusho, and GTO. They’ve been occupying most of my time. Also, shows like FMA and Hayate, which are awesome and sweet, were not added because, while they’re new, you kind of already knew what to expect from them.
