Summer 2009: In Case You Were Curious

Since now is the time where every single anime blogger talks about his, her, or it’s opinions for the new season, I figure that, as an anime ISSSer, I might as well do the same thing. To start off, here’s the same picture that every single person puts up:


I guess you're not cool unless you have this God Damn picture.

So there you have the list of anime. Now it’s time to go over every…..single………remind me why I’m making this post again? Chances are that this is going to get lazy.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0



Premise: Two siblings are stuck in the aftermath of an 8.0 earthquake, which has pretty much destroyed Tokyo, and are trying to reach their mother.

Watch?It’s different. I haven’t seen many (any) disaster anime, so this could be pretty cool. I’ll give it a shot. Yes.


Premise: A bunch of random ass characters are randomly brought together by a bizarre event. (I’m pretty much copying what I read off of the above picture)
Watch? This could either be incredibly nasty or incredibly stupid. I’ll give it a shot if it gets good reviews from enough people. Maybe.

Cobra: Rokunin no Yushi

Cobra Rokunin no Yushi

Premise: A cool ass space pirate decides to become a boring normal person, and wipes his memories.
Watch? If they made this opposite, like a boring ass normal person decides to become an awesome space pirate, then maybe I would. No.
 I guess this has been postponed until winter. Of course, this series looks dumb anyway, so I don’t really care.

Element Hunters

Element Hunters
Premise: Really stupid.
Watch? No.
Aoi Hana

Aoi Hana
Premise: Lesbians
Watch? Uh…Yes.
Okay, from now on, if you want to know the actual plots, then you can take a peek at the picture above…..oh……you can’t read it? Sorry.
Spice and Wolf II

Spice and Wolf II
Premise: Continuation of the first season, Spice and Wolf.
Watch? Well, I’ve only just begun the first season, so when I finish that, then I’ll watch this. Yes, eventually.



Premise:Koyomi Araragi was a vampire for a little bit, but she’s almost back to human.
Watch? Shaft + Akiyuki Shinbo = Gold (exclude Maria + Holic) Yes.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni

Umineko no Naku Koro ni
Premise: Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None comes to mind. Relatives of a rich guy, who is near death, are all trapped on an island. Murder will be happening.
Watch? Umm, anything that has an ounce of relation to Higurashi is awesome. I’m amped for this. Yes.

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Premise: What are you, kidding me?
Watch? What are you, kidding me? YES YES YES.

Hetalia Axis Powers 2

Hetalia Axis Powers 2
Premise: Continuation of the first season.
Watch? Never saw the first season. Maybe I’ll watch if I ever watch the first season.
Taisho Yakyuu Masume

Taishou Yakyuu Masume
Premise: Have you ever seen A League of Their Own?My sister used to play softball, so I’ve seen it a few times. This anime is that. The only real difference is that this is in Japan, and started by two girls (I think?).
Watch? I don’t know. It could be good, but as far as actually taking the time to find out? Doubtful.

Umi Monogatari

Umi Monogatari
Premise: Mermaids deciding to go on land in order to deliver a ring, and encounter a girl that awakens their powers? Where do they come up with a stuff? I have a weird hunch that there will be a lesbian or two in this.
Watch? I want to see if my hunch is correct, but if it gets dumb, I’m not afraid of dropping it. Yes.

Fight Ippatsu! Jyuden-chan!!

Fight Ippatsu! Jyuden-chan!!
Premise: “The story revolves around Plug., a mysterious office lady who came to our world from a parallel dimension to “charge” up dejected people.” Even with that description from the picture above, I still have no idea what this show is actually about.
Watch? Fuck yes,it looks awesome, and the name reminds me somehow of Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan, probably just because of the “chan” ending.
Sora no Manimani

Astronomy is not exciting.
Premise: Astronomy club.
Watch? Astronomy is stupid. No.


Premise: Quarantined people and mysterious powers.
Watch? Hmmmm….the fact that the title is in all caps makes me think that it’s overcompensating for it’s lack of goodness. I might check it out though, if reviews are good. Maybe.

Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou

Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou
Premise: Loli + Magicians
Watch? Normally, no. I would not watch this. But the picture looks cool, so yes.


Premise: Small girl has no relatives, and lives in the newspaper delivery service plays where she works, and is surrounded by bishojo.
Watch?Looks stupid, boring, and un-enjoyable. Has Rie Kugimiya. Yes.

GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

Obligatory Art Show
Premise: K-On – Music + Art (of course, it’s a different production company)
Watch? No…….is what I’d like to say, but as an Art Major, I am obligated. Yes.

All of the Other Shit

Premise: Who cares they’re all gay and/or for little kids.
As for the OVA’s that I’ll be watching, I’ll include To LOVE-Ru, Higurashi (when it finishes up in August), and Akane iro ni Somaru saka – Hardcore (it better be fucking hardcore too). Oh, not to mention the 6th Hellsing Ultimate, which is the most bad-ass OVA ever made, and puts the series completely to shame.
So all in all, I am going to definitely watch with the ones that I actually am looking forward to in bold blue:
  • Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
  • Aoi Hana
  • Spice and Wolf II (eventually)
  • Bakemonogatari
  • Umineko no Naku Koro ni
  • Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
  • Umi Monogatari
  • Fight Ippatsu! Jyuden-chan!!
  • Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou
  • Kanamemo
  • GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class

Shit. I’m picking up over 10 shows again. I did not want to do that. Damn it. Oh well.

NOTE: If the spacing on this post sucks, which it does, then it’s not my fault, it’s WORDPRESS’s fault. It only lets me space sometimes. Lately, WordPress has been failing me left and right. Fuck you, WordPress. Fuck you.

Queen’s Blade 10: I Don’t Care What Happened, Reina Still Sucks

So, Reina is now good at fighting, whoop dee doo. She still sucks, and I still hate her. I mean, just look at her stupid hair and retarded armor. Way too much skin is being covered by that armor. Jesus Christ. Let’s take a look at her progression from “shit” to “the shit”.


Here, we see her challenge Ritsu to a fight, and get shit on immediately, in one  hit.

Reina is the butt of everyone's jokes.


It seems that in order to get nasty at fighting, all one needs is a good, old fashioned raping:


Sure there's easier ways of covering yourself with protective sap, but this way is much more fun.

Yea so let me explain the picture above. Slutty Snake Lady got a bunch of tree sap and is covering Reina and herself with it. It will harden and act as “super armor”, so that they can try and kill each other, but no one will get hurt. In the world of Queen’s Blade, the most efficient way to cover oneself with this sap is to wrestle in it, naked, with someone else, naked.

The Shit (but still shitty):


Okay, so she beat The Slutty Snake Lady. Nice going, whore with pigtails. I still hate you. Now, Reina is ready to face Risty in a battle. At least that’s what you think, until Queen’s Blade surprises everyone with an actual TWIST! NO WAY A TWIST! (It’s not worthy of a BAM moment, but it was still unexpected). Claudia fucking kills Risty! (she better be dead, or I’ll feel cheated) Surpriseee!!!!!

For once, I will actually ROOT for Reina to win! Because Claudia is even stupider of a character. That whole family is stupid (except for the lesbian sister, who is awesome).

And so ends another episode of Queen’s Blade, the best show ever. (that was obvious sarcasm, but this episode was actually pretty good).
