Is Summer 2011 as strong as Spring 2011? Many persons on the net said that Summer seemed lackluster. However, even though Spring 2011 was strong, there wasn’t much anime that truly stood out from the bunch. There were several good anime but no amazing or great anime either. While the average anime quality of Summer 2011 seems low, I think there will be a few anime that will stand out more than any anime from Spring.
Perverts will also find enjoyment in this season with so many moe and loli series. Anime Sport fans will definitely be disapointed during this season as the only sport anime is Ro-Kyu-Bu! (lol) which is more likely targetted for pedobears.

Synopsis: Kyouhei, after moving away to Tokyo from his old town to get away from the events that happened, is on a goukon with his friends, including his old neighbor, Shiba. After drinking for a whole night, he and Shiba discover a dead, bloody, body in the elevator. He is told by his younger sister, Utao with her Kamisama Doll, that Aki, an old friend, and his Doll, are the culprits responsible.
This anime seems to be a bi-polar anime since, in the 2 sides of the story, you have a very cute part about a little sister meeting her brother in the outside world and a very obscure part about the brother’s dark past that relates to deaths. To mix Moe and Violence, will it work in this anime? Maybe, who knows? I think it’s worth to take a look. Plus: from what I’ve seen of the trailer, the music seems like it’s going to be great.
Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou
Synopsis: As he continues his ascension to the role of the Nura Clan’s leader, Nura Rikuo and his Hyakki Yakou must travel to Kyoto in order to face the Kyoto Youkai Clan’s reborn leader, Hagoromo Gitsune who was the former master of all spirits (I refuse to use the words “The Lord of Pandemonium” since it sounds lame) and the prime suspect of the death of Rikuo’s father, Rihan.
Well, a new director has been appointed to the anime. Hopefully, the second season will not disappoint like that horrible first season. Season 2 pretty much covers the good part of the source material. There is no excuse for shit. I’ve made my points in previous posts already, so there is no need for me to say more. Another bad anime will simply result in the death of the manga.
After the 11 episodes of C- The Money of Soul and Possibility Control, I find myself to think “WTF is the point of this anime?” 8-9 episodes of Yoga soul-searching for a path in his life. Present or Future…fight or not to fight…Get rich or die…Destroying the financial business vs destroying life. In the end, it turned into an epic fight between Mikuni who believes in the present and Yoga who believes in the future. Yoga wins by destroying the Yen currency in Japan which would weaken Mikuni’s powers. However, shouldn’t that apply to Yoga too? I don’t see how that makes much sense. While the fight was entertaining enough, I had to switch my brain off for a little while.
Yoga wins and what?
We get this shitty god-like dude who’s behind the Financial district saying to Yoga that its purpose is to lead people for a better future. RIGHTTTTT, suicide+people no longer existing = better future? LOL, maybe the anime is referencing that the world is a better place when there’s less humans. We need to to go back to the past and erase the existence of Willy Wonka in order to get rid of any source of inspiration used for C’s trolling.
Ok, the win of Yoga enables him to use the rotary press to give everyone’s future back. There’s a few catches. The present is a different world, so the future is different too. He doesn’t get Hanabi who is a different person. Msyu probably won’t become his daughter, but he does get her kiss in that episode though. The US Dollar currency replaces the Yen in japan…wait what? I’m facepalming at the fact this anime is trying to say that America is the Savior! Just ridiculous… Why not make Bush as the main character in a second season? Season 2 would be called B: Bush- The Debt of Soul and Possibly Retarded.
Questions such as “WTF is the Midas Money?” has yet to be answered. In the end, it is just black money with unknown effect to reality.
By using the rotary press, while it is to buy everyone’s future, it is really unknown if there was any change to Yoga’s future. He’s fighting for the future and all but using the black card means sacrificing your own future. A)Does buying everyone’s future include his own future? If yes, this black card is flawed. If no, then, what’s the point of fighting for everyone’s future when you’re damaging yours?
But seriously, after all the personal inner conflicts on choosing future or present, the climax is that the financial district district still exists and will still exist as long as there is a future. After 11 episodes, the animators finally realized they created an impossible dilemma to solve with the little amount of time. You bankrupt someone and the loser’s life and surroundings lose all future. You try to keep someone alive and it fucks everyone’s future.You try to avoid fighting and have your opponent or yourself cut your cash in half which should…still fuck you. 11 episodes to tell you that there is no possible choice but to buy some time with the black card. But since the future is alternated, is Yoga’s new future as strong as his past future? Will someone even have the same conclusion as him when the erasing of the financial district occurs? In the end, the anime showed that the animators had no ideas what to do with the ending. However I’ll give credit to them for making me think a bit, even though I got a huge headache.
C could easily become a visual novel game using the style of Higurashi or Steins;Gate, where we try to find the ultimate route to the happy ending (LOL). I already thought up of 2 possible ending that could work in the ideal circumstance.
1)To accept fighting: However, do nothing but have a cup of tea during the 666 seconds which results into a draw. You don’t gain. You don’t lose. You don’t receive damage. No change to reality? But like I said, it’s on an ideal circumstance which is still impossible in real circumstance due human’s nature to go forward with enrichment and power which would cause distrust between the opposing forces. You know world peace is impossible.
2)Yoga can always spend his life to expose the financial district to the real world and go witch-hunting on the entrees. However, senseless killing will occur which results into a bad future.
As you can see, no matter what ending comes up, it comes to the same thing. This anime is just telling us “Humanity is fucked and so let’s ask the help of the US”.
3)Have Hatsune Miku stand before the erasing power of C and activate this:
You know Mikuni fails compared to Abridged Seto Kaiba since he can’t screw the rules.
While I would consider the series a 7.5/10 when i turn off my brain, the last episodes gets a brilliant 10……………………………………………..out of 100 :p
