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 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).

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!!!!!

Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? Episode 8 knowing that I skipped the 3 last ones

OMG, I ended writing about Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? Wait, why didn’t I do a post for episode 5, 6, 7? For that answer, I’ll have to explain to you the String Theory first…(after a long explanation skipped)… It was simply because I was too lazy and I had little time. So I spend this remaining hour of free time to finally make yet another perverted Kore Wa Zombie post.

And so…

Oh yeah, it’s a bit of an old news since it’s from last episode, but EFFING Ayumu got a new wife. Seriously, he can get a wife, but he’ll never be able to get the girls to call him “Onii-chan”.

This is YOUTH!!!

Main Desire: I want those glasses. I WANT THEM!!!!


Respect to Shakespeare

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

LOL I just love Sera

Main Reaction: Is there a fight between IS and Zombie Desu Ka?

It seems to me that both shows are competing each other on how much girls can the protagonist get on his harem. There seems to be another girl who likes Ayumu or at the very least hints toward that possibility. She is in the ending segment which is something that I haven’t noticed before this episode (lol). So, I guess she’ll take part of the harem.

WHAT'S HER NAME?!?!?

This episode was really about the joining of new “wife”, Yuki Yoshida (real name) aka Mael Storm (vampire ninja name) aka Tomonori (nickname), into the Ayumu super Harem. I definitely prefer her over Haruna considering she’s less bitchy. I’ve separated the ep mainly into a few major parts.

WOW I wish I had a girlfriend that would wear this for me

First, Yuki is learning how to like Ayumu and how to make him like her. It already seems to me that she already likes him which makes her a girl in denial.

KYUN

Second, Ayumu and his harem having fun and going shopping. I fell off my chair when I saw Seraphim trying the cat ears and imitating a cat (OMG KAWAII). That was one of the top moment in that episode.

MEOW

Third, Haruna is getting jealous, impatient and… horny. She wants Ayumu. However, she’s the least likely to be Ayumu’s favorite. You know who’s his favorite chick or, I should say, his favorite Imouto. I’d say “poor Haruna”, but I just like the other characters better.

Watch out for rapists


OMG LOL, Ayumu is being raped by Haruna.

Fourth, Yuu’s former zombie aka the “main(?)” antagonist appeared and our necromancer-chan disapeared bringing drama back to the show. I got to say that the dude just looks like Ayumu. They’d be fit to be brothers or should I say the Lolicon Brothers. It does explain why Yuu is so attached to Ayumu. She can’t seem to forget that former zombie she made. I still predict that the dude is a yandere. For some reasons, It would be convenient (lol).

The Villain...

Anyone noticed the change in Yuu’s Imouto voice inside Ayumu fantasies in that episode? It seems so much mature and so much of a turn-off. Adult Voice in a loli body…Even if it’s a fantasy, it sucks (lol).
I want to the cute Imouto voice back!!!!

That was a very fun episode overall. 8.5/10

IS ep 8: Ichika as a Wife/Let’s bring the birth to the “houki face”

Warning: I’m still looking for staff…Fuck

Primary Reaction: Why Laura Why?!?!?!?!

Let’s recap that episode. It starts with a fun fight between team Houki-Laura and Ichika-Charles. Houki is quickly disposed which is quite sad. Laura is being double-team and starts losing. She loses control of her IS and transforms…Blah Blah Blah…Ichika saves her…Charles re-transfers as a girl with the name Charlotte…Laura comes in and kisses Ichika to declare marriage. I just loved the facial reaction of Houki. The Houki face has potential to rival against the legendary Cornette Face (known to be used several times on Botchamania).

vs

Laura didn’t take long to get out of the “Yan” mode, assuming that she was more of a yandere than a tsundere. But I got to say, between Ichika and Laura, I’m pretty Laura would be the one wearing the pants in the relationship (lol)…Oh wait She did declare that Ichika would be her “wife”. Yes, her “WIFE”. I checked a translator to be sure (lol). 8 episodes have passed and the main character already gains 5 chicks in his senseless harem. All he needs in his harem is a Megane-shoujo.

It was quite a fun episode that ended with a laughable moment. 8/10
