Anime Spring 2011 Impression (part 5)

The following impression post is about: C-The Money of Soul and Possibility of Control, Hidan no Aria, Denpa Onna to Sheishun Otoko, Hoshizora e Kakaru.

Oh yeah, I’m not even going to bother with Seikon no Qwasar II since the censorship is too heavy. Plus, waiting for the uncensored version isn’t worth it.

C: The Money of Soul and Possibility of Control

Funimation hit a potential jackpot on licensing this anime. The show’s first episode does a great job introducing the crappy life of the main character, Kimimaro Yoga. His family is poor because of the bad economy in Japan, so he must work on 2 convenient stores. His only female friend and possible crush has a rich boyfriend which shits on his life even more. Kimimaro seems to be the type to be easily tricked as he was dragged by the persuasiveness of the following character. A weird and suspicious man called Masakaki comes to Kimimaro for an offer for a loan and a spot as an entrepreneur in the Financial District, a mysterious virtual dimension. He looks like Mephisto from Ao no Exorcist a lot in every way possible. In his creepiness, he’s really funny by the way he moves and speaks. Technically, the people in the financial district fight each others with their avatars. I’d like to see how good the fights will be. It reminds me a little bit of Liar Game where people are fighting for money and of The Matrix with the virtual world thing. I really never get enough mind-raping shows. So, the show seems pretty much awesome for the moment. I really hope the stuff keeps getting better. The only thing that could be bad for the show is if Kimimaro ends up becoming in love with his avatar. 9/10

Hidan no Aria

One thing about that pretty much says it all about this show: Rie Kugimiya. Goddamn it! She’s become a freaking anime clichés. It’s more predictable loli tsundere violence coming up. The anime doesn’t make much sense as it fails to make me like the horrible setting. Butei High School trains students to go on to whatever position requiring fighting skills. So, students need to always have their bullet-proof uniform, guns and blade. In addition, someone is trying to kill those student without any kind of important explanation. Then again, nothing is explained at all. You have a girl standing on top of building and jumping. Who cares about common sense? The main character, Tohyama Kinji, has a medical condition where he goes badass mode when women are in danger and he wants a normal life. LAME!! Nearly every student just seems out-of-place. Little girls carrying guns. What da fuck? This is so far the crap version of MM!. 5/10. Good news is that I’ve never expected anything out of this show 🙂

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

“This is how God equalizes us. Her appearance was too beautiful, so he corrected it with a huge minus to her brain.”

Weird, Weirder, Weirdtastic, Weirdlicious!!! You have one good comedy out there. Seriously, the story seems to flow pretty well on the first episode. You have Makoto Niwa, a boy who looks to make a great memories as a high schooler, Erio Tōwa, a Denpa girl (Electric Wave Girl) who is enrolled in a futon and claims to be an alien, and Meme Tōwa, Erio’s mom and 39-year-old hot milf. Yes!!!! Thanks God that the male protagonist isn’t some moronic asexual dude. The dude actually wants some chicks which is something that rarely happens in romance anime. Plus, Makoto does a great job to complement the craziness of his surroundings with his mind monologues. Erio is positively a WTF character. She believes to be half alien and her beauty in Makoto’s eye is too great to be humane. Alien or not, she got perfect balance when it comes to standing still on top a bike. Meme is just crazy just like her daughter. She just amazing at ignoring things such as her own daughter and Makoto’s concern. She is also the prime example of a woman who really needs a man, hence the reason why her business card contains her age. For some reasons, I expect some moments involving Makoto and Meme in the same bed just like Kei and Hatsuho from Onegai Teacher. The show is similar to Arakawa Under the Bridge except there is some continuities between segments. Oh yeah, that’s because Shinbo is directing the show (lol). You could obviously see from the opening segment. Shaft does great things as always. 9/10

Hoshizora e Kakaru

Say hello to another predictable and bad harem romance comedy anime that has been brought to this world. You have this one dude that I won’t bother knowing his name and his brother who looks like a fucking girl (Female Bait Material). This show has nothing that isn’t predictable. Contents range from the obligatory forgotten childhood friends setting to bathroom incidents. If the little brother look feminine, then the main guy is a girl inside. Seriously, a dude crying because some girls saw him naked isn’t good comedy material. I think the random monkey was more interesting than the entire cast of the show. I’m just drawing a random number from 1 to 5 for the score (lol). 4/10

Anime spring 2011 Impression part 3

Anime Impressions on A Channel, 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku, Maria Holic Alive and Dororon Enma-kun Meramera.

A Channel

You have 4 girls: Run, Tooru, Nagi and Yuuko. Run is an air-headed girl who falls asleep in class, gets distracted enough to die in an accident if no one is around to save her. Yes, it’s the stereotypical blonde. Tooru is the midget childhood and obsessed friend of Run. She goes as far as bringing a baseball bat to chase away all of Run’s male friends. She is highly similar to a dog in the context that she comes at the call of Run, she protects her at all cost and she has a strong nose to smell sweets. Nagi is the megane-girl that seems to look at lot after her diet and weight. Yuuko is the big-boobs girl who Tooru seems to dislike partly because of her first impression on Tooru and her big boobs . The first episode of this anime wasn’t really impactful in my opinion. It did succeed in making me chuckle a bit, but aside from that, some jokes were abusively repetitive especially with Tooru attacking Yuuko’s boobs at least 3 times. This anime seems to be the type: “Hey, look! What she is doing is silly and cute! Let’s laugh becauese It’s MOE!! HAHAHAHA” The animation is marvelous and the show seems solid, but on the long run, if it can only get me to chuckle a little bit, then I’ll drop it in less than 6 episodes. I’ll give a few more chances. However, I doubt I’ll ever make a blog post on this show again. 6.5/10

30-Sai no Hoken Taiiku

For Fuck’s Sake, this anime is fucking fucktastic!!! This is one of the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen in my life. We have Hayao Imagawa, a virgin who’s reached his 30th birthday, and a narcissist God of Sex who is sent by the Heavens to kill Hayao’s virginity. The God of Sex already starts off as one of the greatest anime characters of this new decade. We get some nice tips such as how to shake boobs. If you’re into sex comedy, this anime is made for you, even if you’re not 30 years-old. If you’re not, you’ll find this anime pretty much insulting (lol). Seriously, the episodes last around 12 minutes, so it’s not much of a waste of time to watch this. A beautiful score of 10/10.

Maria Holic: Alive

Maria Holic is back with a new opening that makes our lesbian main character, Kanako, look like a freak. We have about 3-4 Benjamin Franklin references with his face. I think there was at least 5-6 nose bleeds. Kanako is being trolled and tortured by the others as usual. Shinbo basically continues his usual comedy style. It’s fun, but a bit tiresome at the same time to go through that episode. I really need to finish watching the first episode (lol). 7/10

Dororon Enma-kun Meramera

Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera Mera! There’s not much to the opening song other than Mera Mera lines. The show starts off with a useless scene with little kids being naked in the public bath. Then after follows a grandma able to use her boobs as an elastic cord. Yes, it helps to show you how creepy and weird this show is. Nothing even makes sense. We have Harumi who starts to discover the youkai world where she ends up meeting and befriending the Youkai Patrol consisting of 4 demons: Enma-kun (a fire demon) Yukiko-hime (a yukionna), Chapeauji (a demon hat) and Kapperu, a perverted kappa. As if we didn’t know about those 3 already… <.< This show is simply a straight-comedy which 30% of the times involves panty jokes. The story is…well, who cares about the story? Seriously, I never got into a Go Nagai work, because, for some reasons, the style is really too unattractive for me to not go crazy. The characters design are kiddy and yet the jokes are pretty much for an adolescent audience. There's some hit-and-miss comedy moments in this anime, so I think it's good to watch another episode to know if you're interested in it. 7/10.

I doubt that my scores have any significance at all considering I've received brain damage from watching some of these anime (lol).

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

Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? First Episode: Scarred for life/ROFL/WTF

The opening song is as good as the show is weird (lol):

“Scarred for Life”, “ROFL” and “WTF” are the thoughts I had while watching this anime. The comedy of Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka is very unorthodox, disturbing, but at the same time deadly funny. Kaibutsu Oujo meets Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni. This anime is way better than your average “bore-me-to-death” anime from Studio Deen.

I wonder how he manages to survive school trips.

During the first 2 minutes, the tone takes a drastic change from normal and typical to random and weird. I was on WTF mode when the main character, Aikawa Ayumu (that’s a very girly name lol), says “Oh- I’m a zombie” just before being hit by a truck. At the moment before he was going to get hit, I was thinking, “Meh, this is the typical moment where he’ll become a zombie”. Then the twist came to shock me which succeeded to get my attention. Ayumu’s persona goes from the “normal kid” to the revenger to the “heroic dude” and to the “sis-con”. It makes the show quite dynamic.

Disturbed at the gay monster

The typical part of this anime is the “Guy lives with several chicks” element. But you got to say that Ayumu’s sis-con perception of Eucliwood Hellsythe is pretty funny. She doesn’t speaks, thus she communicates with notes saying she wants food. However our delusional main character imagines her as a little sister going “Onii-chan, daisuki desu” mode.

Even I have such fantasms

Gintama reference: Elizabeth, What The Hell Is That?

The most “pure win” element of this series is Haruna, the masou-shoujo or whatever It supposed to mean. She reminds me of Rena from Higurashi and I soooo don’t know why (sarcasm). She’s a magical girl with chainsaw (lol) who turns naked whenever she fails to use her magical powers right. It’s a nice bait for the crazy otaku or weirdos.

For The Win or at least For My Win

Mystletainn Kick!!! wait that's not a kick!!

The moment I got scarred for life is that Ayumu actually turns into a masou-shoujo and damn that was ugly. This is the reason why I avoid going to conventions. The panty shots were unbelievably disturbing.

0.o I'm slightly disturbed. Am I in an anime-con?

IT'S STILL NOT A KICK!!

Gay Crabby Agrees

The first episode really was “impactful” as well as hilarious and thus gets a 9/10.

Beelzebub: First Episode

The highly expected Beelzebub finally made its debut!! I said it already and I shall repeat it: A badass delinquent + a naked baby = Brilliant.

DABUH!!! (Piss Break!!)

Here is the highly rock op:

Beelzebub will most likely become the funniest anime of the season. The main formula of this show is that there is no formula/pattern. Everything is random. The first episode did well to demonstrate the character of Oga Tatsumi. He is a kind-hearted and popular hand-some young man…Ok who am I kidding? He is the devilish and badass delinquent who possesses demonic sense of humour (lol). That’s what differentiate from the typical shounen show. The main character isn’t usually awesome. The show will rely a lot on the awesomeness of a lot of characters. Trust me, I’ve read the manga. The animation is well done even though it is a bit cartoonish at times.

Name: Oga Tatsumi, Occupation: The Tyrant you should be kneeling before.

The things I liked the most on that episode are the sarcastic narration of Oga, the demon lord’s rough schedule, the facial reactions, the contradiction that Furuichi being on a 120% delinquent school and Baby Beel’s hilarious reactions.

Name: Kaiser de Emperana Beelzebub IV, Nickname: Baby Beel, Occupation: Demon Lord

How much greater can a demon lord get when he just decides to kill humanity for the sake of killing humanity while playing on his PSP? Humanity was saved by a chupacabra hunting bus-tour and a 10000 day mahjong tournament lol. If you’re too busy, send your newly born baby son for the job. It’s always the solution.

Green Demonic PSP lol

I assure you the randomness has barely started. 9/10

Name: Hilda, Occupation: Wet nurse, Kawaii level: OVER 9000!!

A truly kind-hearted young man... lol
