Summer Anime 2011 First Ep Impressions Part 1

Blood-C

As I expected so far, the first episode did a great job proving that Blood doesn’t blend well with Clamp. In addition, for a show that is supposed to look beautiful, the animation looks mediocre as hell. In Last Vampire, the focus was on bloody gore. In +, it was Saya’s identity search and road to accept her destiny to kill those beast. Both movie and anime had somewhat a form of horror genre. Sadly, Blood-C isn’t that. Not impressively gory, Not really psychological…It’s just senseless action added with lovey-dovey moments that doesn’t transition well. Saya is now an annoyingly clumsy girl who loves her daddy very much to a romantic stand-point. The actions in the first episode are pretty much resumed as “School life, Trips to the ground, Maiden Life, Trips to the ground, Kills monster without question, Goes Home with a smile to daddy.” If we didn’t watch The Last Vampire and +, we wouldn’t know WTF is happening on this show. This is a bit ironic as Clamp is clearly trying to stray away from the Blood series, but they pretty much expects us to see them to understand their stuff. If we go to the fight scene itself, it was okay but I do have a problem at how the creature got killed. Since the chiropteran was a statue (Facepalm), I laughing at how Saya couldn’t cut it with her sword until the beast got into a full transformation. Your final form is useless if you become killable which is a bit retarded. As a blood series, it fails so far. As a Clamp show, it ranks even below than Kobato. Oh Yeah, did I say Saya trips to the ground? Oh Clamp, what have you done? At least, provide us with a good opening song which isn’t the case right here. The episode gets a “marvelous” 5/10.

Ro-Kyu-Bu!

Facepalm: I’ve found even worser than Blood-C. Ro-Kyu-Bu! isn’t only your next K-On! Basket anime. It’s also your next Kodomo no Jikan. Coach got fired for being a lolicon…Male High School Team get suspended…Talented Freshmen player who resents the sport become the temporary coach of the middle school girls team…Girls get into maid outfit…FUCK YOU! I can definitely predict where da fuck is this anime going. The only chick who can play will fall in love with the guy and problems arise. More stupidity will fall upon us and my brain will short-circuit again. I’m still surprise that Basketball was still the focus of 50% of the episode even though it’s just a driveway for more fan services. A 4/10 fits this anime pretty well, but I’m sure this anime scores a 10/10 for pedophiles.

Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyo

To much of my surprise and delight, Nurarihyon no Mago finally gets back on the good step. A new director and more source material really help to get back up from the shitty first season. For the first episode, they aired the death of Rikuo’s father, Rihan, and the FIRST chapter of the manga (lol). Seriously, how incompetent was that first director to not make the real first episode THE first episode of the anime. Putting that ep first would have shut the critics up who said that Rikuo is a shitty character for not initially wanting to become a Yokai. The anime finally took the path of Shounen Jump instead of being a retarded Mystical anime failingly trying to become a horror. However, it would be wrong to say that the anime will follow the manga closely considering Jaimi and Ryuji are introduced next week in the same ep. Well, as long it’s well done, there’s no problem. For bringing depth into Rikuo, this episode scores a 8/10.

Kami-sama no Memochou

The Memopad of God will lead me to the answers of my Biology test answers. Ok that’s irrelevant. I know bad joke is bad. WTF is Kamisama no Memo-chou? An anime about a detective called Alice. But not any detective, A NEET Detective!!!! But not any NEET Detective, A HIKIKOMORI Detective!!!!!!!!!!! That’s really the only NEET Thing To Do! This is somewhat a very pleasant anime to watch. Call Alice and Narumi a bad duo version of Victorique and Kuujo, but damn, Alice is so fucking cuter than Victorique! While the mystery could have been focalized a bit more, I did enjoy the slice of life element of the show where the main guy is just adapting or being force to adapt to the NEETs he’s being introduced. For the first time (I think), we have an anime where NEETS aren’t actually useless and creepy. NEETS are just officially unemployed or not in education and not necessarily outcast of society. I do find it funny that the playboy dude was actually a NEET. Somewhat, Alice seems to be the only hikikomori who’s actually BOSS! The series seems to be a must-watch this season. I don’t know what’s the strength of Gosick since I haven’t watched it all, but the characters of Kamisama no Memo-chou captivated me better than Gosick’s. Score 8.5/10

Twin Angel: Twinkle Paradise

Well, considering I’ve started the first impression of Summer 2011 pretty negatively, why not finish this post the same way too? I’m too lazy, so I’ll do a short bash on this terribad show. The next impression will be more positive. The first moment of Twinkle Paradise made me facepalm so badly as we see bad guys trying to rob vegetables…FUCK THIS SHIT! In addition, the opening song is annoying. What the fuck is this show? An obvious parody of Sailor Moon about 2 girls mahou shoujos with obvious character traits. The red girl is the annoyingly energetic girl. The blue girl is the shy-type girl with big b00bs. The content looks very kiddy, but fan services also target an older audience. I think this anime might be good in the 9th dimension. Anyway, just…Don’t watch this! Score: -10/10 (notice the negative sign).

Anime Summer 2011 Preview

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.

Stats:
# of anime in this post: 21
# of action anime: 8
# of loli anime: 9-10

Kamisama Dolls

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.

Quick Look at Summer 2011

(Source)

So far, just by looking, the things that seems pretty good are:
-Natsume Yuujinchou San
-Usagi Drop
-Kamisama Dolls
-Blood-C
-No.6

The “Meh, I don’t know” stuffs are:
-Sacred Seven
-Dantalian no Shoka
-THE IDOLM@STER
-Kami no Memo-chou
-Ikoku Meiro no Croisée

In need for redemption:
-Nurarihyon no Mago (season 2)

Well, without a doubt that Natsume Yuujinchou is one of my favorite slice of life anime. The anime has done a better job with the youkai parts than Nurarihyon no Mago who failed to look like a good shounen anime in its first season. The main error of the anime of NnM was it tried to look mystical rather than cool like the manga.

I actually want to see IDOLM@STER to succeed (lol). Why? It might just open the door for a AKB48 anime in the future. Pfft…as if I actually cared about IDOLM@STER.

Dantalian no Shoka is made by the creator of Asura Cryin’. The pic looks cool, but the creator of Asura Cryin’? That’s a negative point already. Well, since it already put down my expectation to “LOW”, the surprise level could be good.

I’ve read the single chapter of Kami no Memo-chou on scanlations. It looks cute. Her solving power comes from the internet AKA The Power of NEET!! At the very least, it looks better than Gosick (lol). But seriously, there’s not a lot of Detective series I liked, beside Detective Conan and Q.E.D. – Shoumei Shuuryou (seriously WTF, the manga been running since 1997 and no anime? FUCK THIS).

Blood-C…it’s the Blood series…Nuff Said.

I have read about 7 manga chapters of Usagi Drop. God Damn It!! It’s was unbelievably charming! This will be one of the best heart warmers of summer 2011.

In Kamisama Dolls, well, it just looks fun (lol). We have a little sister type of characters. There is some supernatural stuff and some gore. 2 types of trailers has been released. One hinted the show would be cute and the other hinted violence and a dark tone in the series which is intriguing.

Ikoku Meiro no Croisée…Jap little girl in France. It looks cute but the animation does everything to remind of the borefest that was Gosick. From the preview, the theme of the show seems to be friendship…meh.

Sacred Seven…Super Heroes in high school + monsters + moe + mecha…IDK, it might not mix well. The chance of this anime being good is the same of it being crappy.

No.6 might look gay, but I’ve read the first chapter of the manga and I actually enjoyed it. I find it similar to Fractale in some ways, but much more interesting for the reason that it wasn’t as silly as Fractale. The tone seems a bit more darker consistently.

So far, Summer 2011 doesn’t look half bad. I can’t wait to know what else will this next season have.
