Anime impression on Spring 2011 (part 4)

I’ve been murdered with school assignments and exams lately. In addition, it’s NHL PLAYOFF season!!! Go Habs Go!!

BTW, I’m still waiting for a show with a style similar to Legend of the Legendary Heroes or To Aru Majutsu no Index. Still nothing yet…

Softenni, “Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san”, Astarotte no Omacha!, The World God Only Knows Season 2 and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

Softenni

How can I describe this show? Softenni is a) about the soft tennis club in a certain middle of nowhere school and b) a fail attempt to copy K-ON! Well damn, there’s other varieties of tennis? Among the club members are bunch of weird girls. The only one sane in the club is the coach who happens to be a lazy dude. The comedy in very generic and repetitive. Sex delusions have used at least 3-4 times already from a pink haired girl. There was one obligatory Prince of Tennis reference. Oh did I mention the studio that animates this is Xebec? Xebec seems to have a gotten to a bad streak with anime lately, especially with Rio Rainbow Gate. I understand why this show didn’t have much hype at all, the stuff is so bad!! 4/10

Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san

From the director that directed Shinryaku! Ika Musume and XXXHolic, Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san is a surprisingly hilarious comedy anime about a megane-girl, Sakuma, working for a demon detective called Akutabe. The latter invokes a demon that will do the whole work for him. That demon is titular character, Azazel. Note that the title of this show seems to spoof Sazae-san (lol). The show itself is a combination of Beelzebub and the manga Defense Devil. I think this anime is what Beelzebub could have been if the show had some good or at least decent directing. Akutabe has a certain similarity with Oga. Yes, he’s more demonic than a demon. I really like Azazel as a character too. Masaya Onosaka is just awesome at voicing comedy characters. The way how Azazel acts is pretty funny and perverted. I liked the moment when Akutabe made her take a contract with Azazel. “Sexual harassment for the rest of her life” 🙂 If anything, this show made the biggest impact this season with the first episode. Do not be fooled by the style: It’s not for kids! lol Surprise of the season: 9/10

Astarotte no Omacha!

God knows how many loli tsundere girls Rie Kugimiya (Taiga, Shana, has voice acted in her career. Seriously, it’s been done so many times that her voice and her loli characters have become a true annoyance to my ear. The story is situated in a succubi kingdom and the princess has turned 10 years old and so to preserve her long and youthful life, she needs to extract the life-seed of men that is semen. Any men will do…Vampires, Humans or basically anything that has a dick. So the princess Astarotte hates men. In order to avoid to suck semen of a men’s dick, she declares that she will only have, in her harem, a human, specie that hasn’t been seen in the succubi world. I’m still waiting for the day where we have a succubi that’s actually slutty. Even if you’re to forget how bad the plot seems to be, the show is heavenly boring. The girl being afraid of men seems to be the only jokeline. There was nothing that could be funny. Beside the segment where the female characters are speaking about sucking dicks (in a subtle manner), the show seems to try attracting an audience that consists of lolicons that do not seem to have anything better to do in life like watching better Lolita anime (lol). Yes, even Kodomo no Jikan looks more interesting than this crap. The shows goes into the shit list along with Dog Days and Sengoku Otome. 2.5/10

The World God Only Knows Season 2

The God of Conquest is back along with his ever awesome PFP…and his demon partner Elsie. The pokemon parody used to try recapping season 1 was funny. Season 2 quickly starts with a new girl to conquer: Kusunoki Kasuga. The girl basically is conflicted between a feminine girl or that strong martial artist that she must become. So, whenever she comes by on something cute, another her in form of a spirit appears which hints that she finds Keima cute, but she rejects that other self in order to be someone strong. She’s already at the point where she’s already faster than Ichigo Kurosaki (lol). She’s technically an extreme case of Tsundere (lol). It was an okay episode in my opinion. The show is pretty much led by the girl targeted by Keima. If the girl isn’t in your taste, you won’t find that arc really appealing. I’m really just waiting for another girl at this point. 7/10

Another beautiful opening song:

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

Zexal is the most kiddy yu-gi-oh! series ever since GX. The horrible opening song is proof. It seems that Frieza has taken over the world. The human race has now acquired the scouters (HAHAHA). The main character, Yuma, looks and sounds as if he’s a direct descendent of Yusei. The first duel is just so horrible. Yuma is a total amateur at the game and he needs to be saved by another obligatory duel monster spirit who just looks like Baby from Dragon Ball GT. I doubt even the abridged of this series, whoever will do it, won’t be any good (lol). 3/10

Anime Spring 2011 Impressions part 2

This post is about the following anime: Kaiji Season 2, Sket Dance, Battle Girls: Time Paradox, Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa, Gintama’ and Steins;Gate.

Gintama’

Well, finally, Gintama is BACK!!!! LOL, I really didn’t expect for the 2nd series to start with Chapter 324 instead of Chapter 292!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s a 32 chapter jump! Basically chapter 324 was drawn for the purpose that the manga at the time took a 1 week break and suddenly as a joke, the story suddenly went to a 2 years jump. Gintama’ episode one just used this joke, but less effectively compared to the manga’s version. It simply didn’t work that well. There’s not much of a great joke in making a 2 years time skip rather than 1. However, I guess it was more relevant to use this story arc for the return. This episode was still funny and most importantly entertaining. Seriously, Kyubey growing a dick was truly shock of the episode . SHE GREW A DICK!!!!!!!! More shocking is Gintoki getting the Yamcha look. There hasn’t been a referenced character that was more insulted than Yamacha. In addition, Tama-chan became warti and WTF is a warti?!?! Gintama still remains a good and random anime out there. This is a good reason why you should get the CrunchyRoll premium account…all for Gintama!!!! 8.5/10

P.S. The opening song sucks…

Steins;gate

So we have a crazy, schizophrenic and self-proclaimed mad scientist, Okarin. Yes, let’s call him that since his real name, Okabe Rintarou, is so forgettable (lol). His alias is even worse: Kyōma Hōōin. This show has a very gloomy animation. You can point out the fact the animation isn’t beauty, but you can’t deny it mixes well with Okarin’s paranoia. Remember Satou from Welcome to the NHK? Both are similar as they always refer to a specific evil secret organisation. Seriously, it’s so fun to watch anime series that have an insane main character. In contrast with Chaos;Head, the story is not about chicks with magical weapons. It’s about TIME TRAVEL! Apparently, Okarin’s phone has something to do with the time travel thing. I actually like the direction at which the anime is taking so far. I’m looking forward to the next episode. 8/10

Kaiji Season 2

While I haven’t watched the first season, I can’t say I didn’t enjoy the first episode of season 2. The recap of season 1 was sufficient enough to know for me to know the general idea of this show and its main character. The protagonist, Kaiji, is a poor loser and an addicted loser. Seriously, you’ve got to be nuts to run happily into the loan shark, whom you’re owing 10 billion yen, and to demand more money (lol). Unlike Akagi, Kaiji isn’t someone so smart (hahaha). He is sent into mining work, in order pay off his debt which will take at least 15 years. So, he decides to build up money to pay one day-off in order to gamble money to save himself (hahaha), but his co-workers quickly make him succumb to his temptation to waste his pay-check by buying food and beer. This anime is a certainly great psychological series where you’re just enjoying the torment of the main character. Yes, I’m a sadist. It’s good to see that Madhouse isn’t just doing some stupid marvel anime. *cough* BRING BACK IPPO!*cough*

Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa nai

Surprise! This show actually turned out to be better than I thought! I thought it would just be some lame coffee restaurant harem romance. However, it turned out to be a too gigantic cast anime to even be able to follow (hahaha). I didn’t say it was a great anime, but, none-the-less, I wasn’t bored. Seriously, whoever is fansubbing this anime better be doing a good job, translating the written names on the show which is something I did NOT see! This show is a bit ecchi, but remains censored. This show is technically what anime represents today: Perversion. We have an american little girl who lifts her squirt to show off her perverted panties to an adult. She says that adult wouldn’t be turned on by her little body only to be corrected by a black man telling her that most japanese men are pedophiles. Considering the popularity of MOE in Japan, it was a nice shot (LOL). There is one of the segments on this show where the coffee restaurant manager and 2 regulars are planning a drinking party in order to invite some vulnerable women, to get them drunk and to get laid. I’ve related this one scene to one of the articles I had to read for my Gender and World Views class. This article was about RAPE in context where collegian males are making the women drink till drunk to make advantage of them!! I know this is not going to be rape plot, but it’s “funny” (well not really funny) how in the real world that what those characters are trying to do would be considered a rape attempt in real life. It would seem the story has some supernatural elements. One of the main male leads appears to belong to another world as a sort of Legendary knight that is “supposedly” awesome… Anyway, this show does have some great characters despite the huge cast and most importantly, it was fun! 8/10

Sket Dance

Sket Dance is an anime that starts off by trolling the viewer into thinking that the first introduced character is the main character for a few minute. Don’t bother with his real name: Generic 4-eye kid. The real focus on this show is a “take-all-jobs” group called the Sket-Dan that consists of the charismatic and slack-off leader, Yusuke Fujisaki aka Bossun, the former strongest delinquent demon girl, Hime Onizuka aka Onihime aka Himeko, and the information tracker who speaks his computer software instead of his voice and who seems to keep referencing other anime for absolutely no reason, Kazuyoshi Usui Switch. I’ll repeat it again. This anime is highly similar to Gintama in many ways. A)It’s fucking random (it’s just the start, you’ll see). 2) The Sket-Dan is another odd job group like the Yorozuya. 3)The school student council is like the shinsengumi. However, this anime really starts off well enough because the characters are actually great. You probably won’t feel bored while watching this anime in the long run. The only problems I had with this first episode are how botched the 3 main characters make their appearance and how lame it is to have the power to concentrate after putting a goggle. Besides that, Sket Dance is pretty good. 7.5/10

Sengoku Otome or Battle Girls: Time Paradox

Call 911, my brain just melted. After finding her homeroom teacher, Date, in a shrine opening a time portal, one stupid girl, Hideyoshi, somehow gets involved which results in her getting back in time to the Sengoku era where she is found by a hawt b00by chick version of Oda Nobunaga (lol). I think it’s a little bit insulting to Japan’s history to portray Toyotomi Hideyoshi as a moronic high school student. Notice the title referencing Sengoku Basara. Battle Girls is quite similar to it, with the exception that all characters are females and the writing is even more ridiculous. I’ve pretty much fast forward the entire episode as the stuff was so horrible. Don’t watch it or, else, your brain will go mush. 3/10

Infinite Stratos episode 12: The end

Well there is my last IS post. I got to say that I’m going to miss the show very much.

Damn that lucky bastard

Warning: This episode proves the show does not make any sense, but you already knew.

Yet again, we have an episode where there isn’t a whole lot of sense. Honestly, the anime would be much better if it was spanned over 24 episodes instead of 12. Some historical information of this anime just conveniently appear randomly such as the White Knight and the Core Zero Zero. Seriously, a prelude should have been made before airing the actual series. We end up learning that Ichika’s IS Core has the ability to regenerate its master. Superb, but this is the last episode. It just happen to have this ability because it was convenient. Generic “Main Character to the rescue” time!!! Wait, we already have: MORNING RESCUE!!! Everything was really too rushed. For convenience (again), Tabane is the one who is the cause of everything in this show, from leading Ichika to an IS to making the Gospel go rampage. Great, she’s the new Sousuke Aizen (lol). Just as I planned 🙂

Hmmm, the unconscious Ichika is inside a world (generic moment). Two girls are talking to him. Oh snap, didn’t I see this a 100 times already in other anime series such as The Candidate For Goddess? One girl is a loli talking about some blah blah. The other is a tall chick in a IS armor asking if Ichika wants power. Under normal common sense, the loli girl is probably Ichika’s IS, Byakushiki, and the tall chick is a A.I. data based from the White Knight.

Relaxing in the generic world

Mystery Loli girl (*cough* ByakuShiki)

Do you want power? No, I'll go look for Kyubey for that.

The action sequence was actually excellent, except for the one part where the anime re-uses the same first 2 min of the first episode on this final episode, but it’s not much of a problem because of the entertaining fight. It took 12 ep for Ichika to actually win a mech fight (HAHAHA).

Now let’s talk about harem from this episode. We have Houki starting to get the lead from the rest of Team Harem. Yes, it’s too bad the show ended. Houki asked Ichika if he was aware that she is of the opposite sex. His answer was simply: “I guess.” From that answer, for me, it’s the equivalent of “No, however I just noticed that, so I’m going to say yes to save my own life.” The answer “I guess” is such a weak answer, especially when an unaware character like Ichika didn’t have much of a reaction to the question. However, he does make it up for the attempted kiss which was interrupted by the rest of Team Harem. Seriously ending the show with a bunch of girls wanting to kill the main character isn’t funny anymore.

Wrong!!!

Speaking of Wrong:

Hehe

Wished Ichika had died in the last ep. Too bad we don't get what we wish for.

This episode gets a 8/10 for the action, a 3/10 for the originality, a 3/10 for the story (Since the storyline was never really good, it’s kinda a useless score haha. Oh Guilt Pleasure!), a 2/10 for the ending. P.S.: The Gospel’s power level is OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!

Anime Spring 2011 Season Preview

I’m right in time! This season is full of shounen, lolicon, random comedy and slice of life anime. Not all anime (Sekai Ichi no Hatsukoi, Dog Days, Dororon Enma-Kun Meeramera, Hamtaro, Hidan no Aria, etc…) has been put in the preview.

Anime TV Series


Gintama The Sequel

Synopsis: Continuation of the first series. The samurai didn’t stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone’s swords. So what does a hotheaded former samurai like Sakata “Gin” Gintoki do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity.

Rejoice!!! There is a good reason to go back to crunchyroll (lol). The super randomness is finally back in anime to blow minds up. I really can’t wait for Gintama to come back this april. I miss Tsukuyu <(** < ) . Watch out Gintoki, because Zura is trying to learn the ultimate technique from Lake Toya’s mom (no pun intended? dun dun dun).

30-Sai no Hoken Taiiku

Synopsis: Based on a guide-book teaching shy men around 30 how to date and have sex with women.

It is the most original concept of this century so far. Even though I’m not 30, this anime seems interesting enough to put a smile on my face. Oppai is Justice!!!!!!

Infinite Stratos ep 11: Review/ranting

WOW, I haven’t done an IS post in a while. Warning: I have no warning that could warn you from something deserving of a warning today…Oh wait, I do have a warning. I’m on a foul mood today and so this post is going to be 95% rant (lol).

Wait, it got nothing to with IS…Anyway moving on…

Reaction: Crap, the show has added transformation sequences! This is a bit late, don’t you think?

Go Pink Ranger!!


Focus on the center


Keep focusing on the center


Well he doesn't get a complete sequence hahaha

Ok, we have everyone thinking Houki will screw up the mission because she’s getting excited for having a new IS. Then an illegal fishing boat comes in forcing Ichika to save them and thus resulting in Houki demanding the moron to leave “those criminals” alone. Then the eternal moronic idealist brings his speech about Houki’s cold behavior towards those illegals which leads to Ichika being shut down. YES!!! HE GOT SHUT DOWN!!!!!! Best thing that ever happened on this show!!! Seriously, what is wrong with Houki exerting violence. One should always be true to oneself. I’m sure Saeko (High School of the Dead) can say the same. It’s a wrong direction to have Houki decide another way and belief to fight, especially since we haven’t seen her fight that often!!!!! Yes, talk about rushed. If you’re going to make her change her mindset, at least give her character development. The way how the show built her character is extremly poor. How is “being violent” is a good cause for being depressed? We do not have enough background story to understand her uneasyness. Sadly, she’s just uneasy with herself because it’s convenient for the show.

Not the Hair Band!!!!!!

Not hot


BITCH SLAP!!

One of the things that really bothered me is that Ichika showed his generic annoying idealist yet again (the other time was when he fought the the valkyria system). The character that Ichika reminds me the most has to be Emiya Shiro aka the dude with the least unrealistic ideals (especially in the Unlimited Blade Works movie). What’s the point of heroic ideals if it puts your allies in danger? Let’s just save some illegal fisherman in the sea instead of destroying a super-dangerous robot going on rampage. Notice that boat wouldn’t be shot if Ichika went for the kill on the machine. One of the characteristics of those kind of idealists is that they believe their actions bring good even if they were to be shown the contrary.

Yup, Ichika is a moron


He's wrong!!!!

Crap, she's crying

Plus can anyone tell me why are they relying solely on the first year students to battle that machine? What’s the point of the teacher again? Oh right, surround an area. Oh wait an illegal boat trespassed. They’re utterly useless! In addition, as (and especially as) the show is most likely to come to an end, it seems that the 2nd and 3rd year students don’t even have any personal IS. It’s quite an amazing school (sarcasm).

Truly good

The positive part of this episode (besides Ichika being shut down) has to be the action sequence, though it was really nothing special. Moreover, the comedy is not existant at all. I guess it’s supposed to focus on Houki’s horrible sad face and depression for SEVERAL minutes which did nothing but make me fast forward this episode. IS without any kind of comedy is the equivalent of a serious Eddy Murphy movie (which doesn’t exist), not that I’m comparing the comedy in IS with Eddy Murphy. Score: a generous 4/10.

Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? Episode 10: It’s back!

Warning: the proofread function seems to be fucking up for the moment. I’m too lazy to do it myself. Also, you can expect a Spring 2011 Season preview at the beginning of April.

Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? newest episode came in at the right time as I was out of ideas on what to write last week with all the delayed releases caused by the desaster in Japan. It’s good to see most anime series are coming back this week. After two weeks, Ayumu is still a piece of shit in Sera’s mind and is now BLOWN UP to piece.

I believe I can Fly

And BOOM

Well, let’s see…This episode was definitly another touching and sad one. Seriously, I want the sad ost on my Ipod. Well let’s recap what happened during this episode. Yuu disappeared and everyone has been searching for her for months time. During that time, our favorite Vampire Ninja, Sera, has been considered a traitor to her vampire ninja clan for refusing to kill Yuu. This episode seems to be the worst day for Sera and Ayumu to say the least. Sera has been beat up 3 times during this episode. This definitly sucks for her.

Damn you vampires.

Eucliwood (yuu) apparently went to the underworld to hide, then came back only to be taken by the other zombie. Then Ayumu and Haruna found them, but the interruption of the 2 vampire ninja clans caused our zombie antagonist to take Yuu and escape. We start to see the motives of the zombie dude. He seems to desire his own death. I guess being an immortal would bore you, though he’s obviously a douchebag which proves that I was wrong to think he was yandere (lol). I’m still waiting for a yandere character. This show has been filling out with several tsundere. I can’t even count them all. GET A YANDERE!!!!

Sad

The comedy itself was definitly limited compared to the other episodes. We only had a few insults from sera, Haruna’s stomach needing food at the zombie dude’s house and the parasite bomb segment. Seriously, we didn’t even see Ayumu’s delusional fantasies. Surprise, no abused perversion!!!!!!!! I’m not even sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I kinda miss the usual style that Kora Wa Zombie usually gives off, but it’s good to have a change after a while, that is if the show isn’t going to end in 12-13 episodes which would be truly sad…more sad than the whole Yuu being away from a sis-con pervert like Ayume. Under common sense sense, that wouldn’t be sad, but the show never had any common sense what-so-ever anyway. My biggest disappointment is that the yellow thing turned out to be just a regular kappa doll. Silly, I know. I was always under impression that this thing was a living being like a hidden fairy (haha) or an actual kappa.

It's just a toy...NOOOOOOOOOO

This bomb is trolling

Decent on the entertainment level, Good on the sadness part…I guess this episode gets 7/10, but Tomonori’s face gets a 10/10

The shock of the episode:

Haruna is wearing more clothes than ever!!!!!
