A new anime season approaches! An excuse for another update!
First the dropped shows. Actually I already had some sort of ‘feeling’ that these shows might get the axe (except for Bakuman). But I make them official with this post.
Bakuman – Not necessarily from winter 2011, but dropped just recently. The anime wasn’t that bad but I don’t like Saiko and I don’t have to hear his voice if I only read the manga. ^_^; (By the way my fave char is Nizuma Eiji and Aoki Ko…)
Beelzebub – As expected I lost interest.
Gosick – Failed to impress. I’d rather dig for old anime shows with better stories to tell.
Kore wa Zombie desu ka? – The masou shoujo part was funny but the characters really don’t appeal that much to me.
Regarding Spring 2011, hashihime hasn’t posted anything yet so I ‘ll just go with psgels’ previews for now. (I’ll updated later when there are other new shows.) I thought this spring was gonna be bad (from looking at the first half of the previews). But there are a couple of noitamina shows so it won’t be so bad.
Okay first up the shows I’ll probably check out of boredom:
Sofuteni – I’m putting a special slot for mindless fun. Because I can’t re-watch Aria or Marimite anymore because of that new year’s resolution. I miss my shots of hazukashiiiii serifuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!
Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei – Something supernatural for a change…since Natsume Yuujincho 3 still has to get made. XD
Hana-Saku Iroha – Slice of life? Hmmm…the word onsen just rings the alarm bells…
Yondemasuyo! Azazel-san – Another spot for the light shows. Because even my brain needs a break from ‘serious’ shows.
Shows I have hopes for:
Steins Gate – From the director of Texhnolyze and Shigurui. Though I haven’t even finished these two series.
Moshidora – Baseball + Drucker…come on hurry up March 14!!
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai – The director worked on Honey and Clover II and Toradora. And it’s on Noitamina.
Deadman Wonderland – I’ve been hearing this one mentioned here and there so I will watch out of curiousity.
[C] THE MONEY OF SOUL AND POSSIBILITY CONTROL – I’ve liked most Noitamina shows so I will check out this one.
I read there’s Appleseed but I the last iteration I saw was boring. So I’ll skip it.
I’m really looking forward to these new shows because digging through old shows and finding what I like is getting harder and harder. I can’t truly explain how my brain just rejects stuff when it feels generic and otaku-pandering. When I see them just after watching awesome shows (like Glass Mask) the rejection reaction doubles. I can’t do much about that really. Anyway with my new job I won’t be bored for most of the day anymore. Ahhh the coming tropical summer really feels like spring right now…
