The season’s almost over, so why bother doing these when I could wait a month and just do Final Grades? Oh well I’m doing it anyway. To do something different. I will use one screenshot to describe how I feel about each show so far.
Well, this SUCKS. The show itself doesn’t suck, on the contrary, it’s turned out to be one of my favorite shows, which astounds me considering how hesitant I was toward watching this anime in the first place. I used to be completely against it. But as it turns out, it has a pretty solid cast of characters with unique traits, and if you know me, then you know that a cast of characters whom all have at least one unique trait will usually give me a giant boner (for real. I get real boners when I think of a cast like this).
So what’s the deal with the screen shot? Well, it shows us all that Yachiyo is now thinking of Satou. This small, simple sentence, in essence, told us all, that she ISN’T GOING TO DO THE DIRTY DANCE WITH KYOKO. As an avid fan of huge lesbians that carry around a katana and have eyes that are constantly shut (an oddly specific taste if I do say so myself), this discourages me. I hope that I’m only seeing things that aren’t there, but I think we all know that I’m right.
B Gata H Kei
Well, one line says it all. This show used to be awesome. It used to be funny. It used to not suck. But after hearing the same shit over and over, I simply fail to see the logic of making this show any longer than one more episode. Honestly, it should have been a 6 episode OVA packed with all of the funny shit, because it seems to me as though they have simply run out of jokes. I didn’t even crack a smile last episode. It was all about Yamada pondering “love”, which was sickingly resemblant to the 1st half of Season Two of Shakugan no Shana (the season eventually kicked ass).
Kosuda is a pussy, and I don’t care if he did confess in front of everyone (which is pretty ballsey), he’s STILL A FUCKING PUSSY. Caraniel said it best,
“Kosuda has actually become more interesting to watch than Yamada’s dull sex-crazed tsundere ways; which is really not a good thing since Kosuda by design is fecking dull as a brick! ”
Honestly, I’m disappointed.
A PERFECT amount of comedy (and good comedy too). It has a PERFECT amount of drama. It has a PERFECT cast of awesome characters. It has Kanade Tachibana. While nothing can be perfect, Kanade is certainly an awesome character. She’s one of those no-emotion character types that I personally love no matter what. And okay, nothing is ever “perfect”, but this series is shaping up to be the best series I’ve seen in a good year. And the OP kicks ass too.
Kaichou wa Maid-sama!
As this show started, it was awesome. I loved it. Klux complained that it was a shoujo, but it mattered not to me, it was funny, and didn’t even seem like much of a shoujo to me (I am not a great fan of the shoujo).
However, over the past few episodes, Usui has become less awesome, the plots of the episodes have become less humorous, and the “shoujo” of the show has finally started to show (That sounded cool). Take note of the screenshot. I do NOT need, nor do I want a show that shows off guys surrounded by flowers with violin music playing every time he is introduced. Perhaps this was masked by the great comedy during the first few episodes of the show, but as the comedy has dwindled, so has it’s masking of this bullshit. Do yourself a favor Kaichou wa Maid-sama: Get funny again NOW or DIE. This show has been on a downhill slide….maybe even a straight drop. I am disappointed again.
Arakawa Under The Bridge
Random screenshot = random show. Random screenshot is also awesome, so it also = awesome show.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
What can I say? Technically this show started in what….winter? It’s awesome. It may even be the best. After it finishes up, I plan on reading the manga, and then re-watching this anime 7 times. It seriously rocks.
As for the screenshot, I didn’t really dig for one, as I could’ve taken any screenshot I wanted. I mean, they’re all awesome. But this highlighted a few things I love about the series. The first is the fighting. It kicks a LOT of ass. The second is the symbolism. There was one scene I recall that showed a flower….wait a minute, I’m thinking of Angel Beats….
Either way, in this screenshot, the combo of blood and tears was awesome. I just liked it. This could finally be the anime to replace InuYasha as a number one.
Well, I really experianced a flip-flop in 3 of the 6 shows I was watching. I thought B Gata H Kei and Kaichou wa Maid-sama were going to kick ass, and Working was going to suck, but so far, the opposite is turning out to be true (although both B Gata H Kei and Kaichou wa Maid-sama both were funny and awesome to begin with, and only recently started togo downhill). Is that all I’m watching? Hmmm, I may pick something else up soon.
I’m also officially half way done with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. (SPOILERS)
I felt satisfied when Kamina died. I mean, I already knew going in that he was doomed for death, but I thought he was going to die much later in the show. Thank God. Now I don’t have to wait for him to die for 20+ episodes. Honestly, he wasn’t even that great of a character. Well okay, he was a great character, but I’ve heard him called things like “bad ass” and “GAR”….he’s not badass, and he isn’t even in the same league as GAR. GAR is someone who pounds people’s heads in with a giant amount of brute man-strength and power. Guts from Berserk is GAR. GAR sounds similar to GROWL. In order to be GA- you know what, I’m not even going to get started on this….
Kamina is awesome, yes, but he’s not really bad ass. He’s kind of just a character that would have been dead in any other show, but the way TTGL is, he just happens to be able to solve everything with fighting spirit. Yes, fighting spirit can make a half destroyed mecha-mobile suddenly become brand new again, and then produce drills bigger than the actual machine out of nothing. It may be impossible, but I must say, I do like it. The show is enjoyable/entertaining so far, but honestly, I expected a bit more. I’d say it was over hyped for me. It has gotten a lot better since Kamina died though.
I guess he is bad ass in comparison to every single character in TTGL. But to me, a bad ass is someone like Kenpachi, who just beats the shit out of people with no mercy or compassion.
