Anime Summer 2011 First Ep Impressions Part 2

Warning: I’m on drugs which will cause me to do some terribad ratings. 2 ratings are math related.

Kamisama Dolls

Like I said before, Kamisama Dolls is a bi-polar anime where there are rapid shifts between cute and violent. The main flaw about that shift is that the “cute” counterpart is pretty un-cute. We have Utao who happens to another generic little sister and who reunites with her big brother, Kyouhei. The big bro aka the real main character seems to have a dark past with the “seemingly” antagonist, Aki, who happens to be a total psychopath. These 3 characters come from a village with a dark secret that is the “controllable” and robot-looking Gods – The Kakashi. Kyouhei cutting his ties with his village had left his role as a Seki -One who controls these Kakashi- to his not-really-adorable little sister who is a n00b in terms of control skills.

I find Aki, a seki in rampage, to be interesting as he looks as if he’s the real bad guy, but I feel he’s more of a anti-hero or at least a victim as I do not think he fits the description of Pure Evil. It’s not like he killed anyone important yet. No one considers Scar from FMA to be a real antagonist. The village seems to be a greater hidden evil. “The shrine’s orders are absolute.” You can’t expect any good from that.

We do find a bit of yaoi hint with Aki’s obsession to Kyouhei. For some reasons, this summer is a female-bait season, but hey, as long they don’t make out, I’m fine.

Score: 8.e/10

I blame Chiaki Ishikawa for reminding me of The Mysterious Cities of Gold with her song (LOL). Great song though.

Natsume Yuujinchou San

The recipe for Natsume Yuujinchou remains the same and will still be the same. Natsume Yuujinchou is just a slow-paced and relaxing youkai slice-of-life anime. It doesn’t really require anyone to watch the previous seasons completely as the entire show is episodic. Natsume and Nyanko-sensei keep doing whatever they do best: Relax, meet some youkais and react accordingly…Help them or chase them out. The series offers some heart-warming moments with the interaction of Natsume and several youkai. P.S.: I’m starting to believe that Nyanko-sensei was Reiko’s pet in her days, since he just seems to know about her than anyone else which pretty much explains why he is still protecting Natsume even though the Book of Friends is getting weaker and weaker.

RIP Tea Cup Youkai. Your sacrifice will remembered…for about 2 days.

Score: 8.Pi/10

Yuru Yuri

What is Yuru Yuri? My main description of the show would be a half-decent show about 4 middle-school lezbos. We got about 3-4 lesbian jokes which get boring after a while. The only strength of the show seems to be the realistic age-height proportion (lol)…Middle Schoolgirls who look like Middle Schoolgirls. So far, the comedy has been hit-and-miss as there was some glimpse of gold, but we mainly get coal. Is the show worth watching? Yes, unconvincedly, if you just want to waste some FREE time, but we’ve all seen Lucky Star and Azumanga Daioh before and Yuru Yuri is not as good as these shows.

Score: 5.lez/10

I really hate the opening song.

Ikoku Meiro No Croisée

Don’t you love a story about a cute little “japonaise” going to france as a “slave worker”? Ok, that was a bit of a bad joke about the “slave” thing, but you get the setting of the anime. Ikoku Meiro No Croisée focuses around cute little girl, Yune, going to France to work for a pre-adult, Claude, in his iron workshop. There might not be any slavery thing, but I can predict a romance building up which could chase away many viewers and gain the love of every pedophiles of this world. I’m still very concerned about that. However, I have I have to admit that the first episode was very well done in its beautiful animation and character design. In addition, we’re not likely to see any senseless fan service. I do find it hilarious that Claude sold Yune’s most prized possession, a kimono that is a memento from her mother which would create a bond between those 2. Who cares about family keepsake when you get to work? :p

Score: 7.loli/10

There’s nothing better than a chillax song.

Sacred Seven

The main character, Tandoji Arma, is a guy with super powers who wants to be left alone and who is feared by 99.9% of all the school students except obviously for one girl. Let’s all thanks Sunrise that she isn’t another big b00bs chicks. Funny enough, she doesn’t seem important (hahaha) even though she is. It’s just me not wanting to know characters name. However, we all know the chick will never get him as she is no match for the leader of a maid army, a Lolita chick who happens to be accompanied with a mecha-piloting butler and a talking backpack (lol). A silly army comes with an even more sillier leader. However, she’s another character who blindly puts her trust to a stranger like Tandoji, but I do agree with her philosophy buying anything for her goals, even an entire school…Heil the abuse of power.

Well, Go Go Power Rangers! I do enjoy being wrong about an anime after saying this is going to be an epic fail for sure. In contrast to Tiger & Bunny that seems to target a western demographic, Sacred Seven is somewhat a more appealing super hero anime for those wanting to escape from the western style without necessarily going away from going away from it. The anime doesn’t excel at originality but does bring back some good memories of super hero series such as Megaman, Casshern, Power rangers and Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad without being a total rip-off. The animation style and fighting scenes that try to make you think it’s epic really are strong points of this anime. Plus, there is an army of maids…what else could you ask more?

Score: 8.Sunrise/10

Awesome opening song.

Kimi no Iru Machi Chapter 140: Haruto must die

Well, Seo Kouji built the perfect setting to end the series in a happy fashion, but nah, the drama must continue!! Eba is becoming that slut who needs Haruto’s dick. Haruto falls for the chick who abandoned him a long time ago. Hell, he dumped Asuka in this chapter. The series is either going to end in an immoral way with Eba and Haruto being together forever after or in the dude’s soul-search on whether Haruto truly loves Asuka or not which will result in him dumping Eba and going back to Asuka (thus showing that Haruto still has not learned his lesson). In the end, it’s just a rollercoaster that needs to be stopped!!

Haruto FAILS!!!!!!!!!!!

Review: Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? OVA: an ass themed episode

My love for Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? only grew as time goes by.

Warning: Protect your ass virginity!!

Following the announcement of the licensing of Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? by funimation and of a new season coming up in the near future, we get more delicious stuff with an OVA episode!

HEHE

Summary of episode:
-Haruna makes a festival event
-Orito and Ayumu forms a pervy team during the festival and school events
-Seraphim’s cooking is still lethal
-Ayumu is no longer a virgin
-The harem count reached 6

Keyword of the episode: ASS

Watching the ova made me think that not seeing KWDK’s weirdness brings a hole in my soul. We may not get Ayumu cross-dressing as a Masou Shoujo, but the series just take the weirdness to a newer level by de-virginising his ass. It is things like Ayumu facial expression that reminds of Seto no Hayanome with Nagasumi losing his Firrsstooo Kissuuu to Masa-san :p However, I do feel disturbed that the dude just looked more girlier than when he puts on his masou shoujo suit (lol).

People would just mistake this for a Hentai picture shot

LOL Expression

0.o

Well, it’s pretty funny considering that we finally get to know who was the name of that normal girl who, without much surprise, was in love with Ayumu. Only after 12 episodes and one ova do we (or at the very least, I) learn that she is called Taeko Haramatsu. We get a confirmation that she likes the dude. Pretty obvious, but I couldn’t ignore the trollbility that she liked Orito (lol). I was pretty surprised how normal the reason why she likes him. Well, she is normal after all (lol). Congrats to Ayumu for increasing his harem to 5 chicks. Oh wait, it doesn’t end here, because Ayumu got a new member on his harem, Sarasvati. The reason for her falling in love with him is a silly yet hilarious one…looking at his ass! I wonder if it’s because Ayumu is no longer an ass virgin (lol). Seriously, I’m not sure how you fall in love after looking at someone’s ass. The ass factor has never been turn-on success for me. I kinda fear that Saras has a dick hidden in her hot panties. I’m pretty sure that there will be some doujin artists ready to draw some Futanari action. Honestly, Sarasvati will probably bring diversity as a truly perverted female unlike the other members of Ayumu’s harem. In addition, while we may not get a shy megane-shoujo into the harem, I think Haramatsu’s personality is pretty much similar to what I want already. I wonder if Kanami will also join the harem. Why not? Let’s have Ayumu get all the known chicks in the show…It’s almost done anyway. Orito is pretty much meant to stay alone and be jealous of Ayumu for eternity. It’s something to look forward in season 2.

She has b00bs :p

She got a nice view of Ayumu's butt

Damn Orito

Hmmm, on this special episode, the voice for Ayumu’s delusion of Yuu is pretty much disappointing. The point of those delusions is to make Yuu look more cuter than she already is. Whoever was playing delusion Yuu didn’t really have the voice of a cute little sister, but rather more of an adult young sister of an older dude which kinda kills the purpose. However, since we’ve already heard the real voice Yuu, do we really need a guest delusion voice for her character? I wouldn’t mind seeing the show stick with only one seiyu for Yuu and her delusion form.

Cute face, but the guest voice wasn't really KAWAII

There wasn’t any anime during spring 2011 that I felt had good fan service action. Rie Kugimiya, along with some clichés, kinda ruined Hidan no Aria for me which led me to drop the show after 5-6 few episodes. I lost interest in We, Without Wings after 2 episodes. So, I was pretty much disconnected from any kind of fan services. I really found enjoyable to see a few cosplays from the KWZDK characters. You really can’t go wrong with Sera wearing a ninja suit or a tight retro undercover spy suit. Considering, she’s a vampire ninja…the ninja suit was needed (lol). I mean…those vampire ninjas wear mage caps and maid costumes, but have never even put any kind of ninja clothing. It was about time.

Vampire Ninja ❤

LOL

I’m surprised how good of a duo Ayumu and Orito makes. Ayumu brings a very subtle loving perversion while Orito brings that pervy-sage style persona. One is somewhat lucky with chicks and the other just completely fails in his love life. This combo needs to be developed in the second season. Orito’s epic fail life would make the show much more refreshing whenever or if we start getting tired of Ayumu being a victim. Let’s pray to the pervert god statue.

ERO POWER!!

It was a very entertaining episode as usual. I give it a good 8.5/10. You can expect me to actively write about the second season of Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? when it comes out in a forseeable future. Spring 2011 is just so hard for me to write anything (lol) because the season was just filled with 7 to 8-pointer shows (you can imagine that there wasn’t really a 9-pointer anime that truly stood out among others).

Happy to have more zombie fan service delusions

A second season of Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? has officially been green-lit! While we unfortunately get more Ayumu cross-dressing into a masou shoujo, we still get more awesome fan service and extreme randomness. More of naked Haruna, more of Seraphim boobs shot and more of Yuu’s cuteness…but also MORE DELUSIONS!!!

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko episode 5

Warning: Aliens DO exist! My dog is a victim of Cattle Mutilation! Yes, it’s a lie since I do not have a dog. BTW, I’ve haven’t written episodic posts in a very long while because of school, so bear with me on that post. I’ve been re-watching Excel Saga, so I can guaranty I’ve lost some brain cells.

So, as the show progresses, one starts to see that Makoto is starting become less impressive for some reasons. What reasons? While he does want to have his youthful moments, it would seem that, like any regular main male character, the dude is just too passive! He’s probably playing it safe which is a bit disappointing. Thanks god that this show has other characters like Maekawa-san and Touwa Meme who make this show good.

It would seem that anything related to his aunt, Meme-san, actually decreases his seishun point. Yeah, after 5 episodes, it’s currently on -9. Considering that Meme looks pretty young for a 40-years-old woman, I would put scored the moments with her pretty positively.

That's a +1 point for me lol

LOL Moment: A women raping her own nephew

Don’t you love Meme’s failing attempts to get the love of Makoto? I find it funny and refreshing. Seriously, Erio is losing her steam. Her voice is soooooooo small!!!! She needs to speak up. Having descended back to reality…a little bit, Erio decides to go back to society. By going back to society, it doesn’t mean go back to school, but GET A JOB! She gets a new hair cut and obviously fails in her first job interview. Well, the main character from the Korean movie, Gangster Lover, was wrong. Begging on your knees DOESN’T get you a job (lol). Who the hell would even hire a futon girl? Let’s see she could always sell her body, but that would be ethically bad. She could have a cosplayer job, but Maekawa has this already. Well, she gets a job elsewhere on a shop of an acquaintance of hers who also believes in aliens…Totally perfect…More crazy people after another… I highly doubt Erio will ever become a normal girl ever again.

LONG LIVE COSPLAY!!…Espicially Meme’s.

WOOOOOO


Meme in an Erio Cosplay lol

The episode gets a 7.5/10 for the shining skinship of Erio and Meme!! I enjoyed the episode. My complaint is that nothing special has truly happened. For some reasons, many anime in this season had chances to become great but most played it safe. I’d like to see something outrageous.

Anime Spring Season Impression part 6 (final)

This is the last season first ep impression I’ll do. I’ll try to pick to 2 anime from the entire season for the usual episode reviews. Deadman Wonderland might end up being one of my choices.

Deadman Wonderland

In term of action anime, there is no doubt that this show is the best one you’ll find in this season. You might recognize the similarity of Deadman Wonderland to Eureka 7 as it is from the same manga artist. You have Ganta Higarashi, boy wrongly convicted for murdering his entire classmate, and Shiro, weirdo and childish girl who seems to know Ganta leading to another anime cliché that is the forgotten childhood friendship. A person in red clothes floating in the sky killed Ganta’s every classmates using his blood to destroy them. That person turns some of his blood into a gem and inserts it into Ganta’s chest leaving him alive. Reason why to like this anime: People actually die!! The story is pretty dark, going from the murder of an entire classroom to angry parents beating the shit out of Ganta to the usage of a prison as a zoo attraction. Interestingly, Ganta displays some supernatural powers of his own at the end of the episode. He ends unconsciously up using his own blood as a weapon. I would like to able to use that power (lol)­. I kinda laugh at the poor dude’s shitty situation where he’s being framed by Takami his own lawyer who happened to be the director of the prison. It’s funny how no one had any suspicions on that one. There’s a great deal of conspiration around Tamaki for sure. Considering the anime industry, lately, has had a ton of epic fails when it comes to adapting shounen manga series into anime, I would say that Deadman Wonderland is very well done. The animation is great even though I would like to see less censorship when the show is showing decapitated body parts (lol). As a reader of the manga, I can say this: It gets better! 9.5/10

PS: Try to find Tamaki’s childhood in the ending song. HAHAHA

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai

A ghost of a deceased girl called Memma is hunting her friend who turned into a hikikomori after her death…ROFL! Jintan, the young hikikomori, seems to be unable, unlike his other friends, to move on in his life. So, Memma wants him to reunite their friends to help realize their wishes. It’s quite an amazingly sad story added with some comedy that involves awkward situations as no one but Jintan can see the girl. Jintan realises his wish is to apoligize to Memma. Memma can still touch things and people, so we know that it’s not imaginary from the poor hikikomori. It’s amazing how his dad doesn’t seem to try making him go out. Don’t expect refreshing characters out of this show. Memma has that amazingly annoying voice. There is this one girl, Anjou, who just fit the tsundere characteristic as she tries to help Jintan (she obviously likes him) but because she acts like a tsundere, Jintan takes her aid as a negatively thing since she’s unable to be “dere”. Awkward friendship…HAHA Awkwardness isn’t the type of comedy I find great but the writing is pretty solid enough to overlook that. It’s a nice charming and touching anime involving the re-built of life and friendship. If you need something to replace Kimi ni Todoke, it’s an anime for you. 8/10

Hyouge Mono

Here is another anime set in the sengoku era. Unlike Sengoku Otome, the show is not bad, but it’s not good. TOTALLY MEDIOCRE! How interesting can it really be to have a messenger of Oda Nobunaga and tea master as your main character. The whole comedy is focused on Furuda Sasuke’s obsession with rare artefacts and fashion mockery. I wanted to go to sleep as the jokes in this show is nearly unfunny. 5/10 but hey, the main character’s moustache gets a 8/10.

Ao no Exorcist

Ao no Exorcist is the story of Okimura Rin and his twin brother, Yukio. Rin, a problem child, lives in the church and tries to prove he can mature as he gets several jobs but fails to keep them all. As he starts seeing demons, Rin discovers that he is the son of Satan! That’s pretty much it for the episode (lol). The entire episode practically just covered half of the first chapter and I don’t expect the 2nd ep to go beyond the end of Chapter 1. I’m not sure if the anime going for 24 episodes. I’d like to point the fact that Yukio is poorly animated. He looks like fat-ass for a character considered to be an athletic guy. The animation is so-so. It’s a style that would fit a 90 min movie but not sure how it do for a tv series. I’ll give this episode a 7/10 because the lack of important content, but the manga would get an 8.5/10 just to tell you how good it could.

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 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).
