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 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

Totoro + Inception = WIN

This is quite an awesome video. Now when I think about it, the last time I’ve ever stepped inside a cinema theatre was to watch Inception.

[C] Control: The Money Of Soul And Possibility PV

Here is a trailer of an interesting Spring 2011 show that didn’t seem to get much hype or talk. It kinda feels like the Matrix a little bit.

Summary: The Japanese government was rescued from the brink of financial collapse by the Sovereign Wealth Fund. For its citizens, however, life has not improved, and unemployment, crime, suicide, and despair are rampant. Kimimaro, raised by his maternal grandmother after the disappearance of his father and the death of his mother, is a scholarship student whose only dream is to avoid all this and live a stable life. One day, however, he meets a man who offers him a large sum of money if he’ll agree to pay it back. From then on his fate is radically altered as he’s drawn into a mysterious area known as “The Financial District.”
