Again better late than never.
I may not be blogging that much, but I am watching anime, a lot of it now, in fact. As I am still new at work, I don’t have a lot of responsibilities yet so I’m not that busy at the moment. For the past few months I have divided my time between anime, books, Internet, and other stuff I didn’t get to do like shopping left and right (obviously getting paid means spending power hehehe). Of course I don’t spend everything because it’s important also that I replenish my savings that got depleted when I resigned without a new job.
Now enough of that RL talk. Since I wasn’t able to do the Spring impressions, I’m combining it with a post about the Summer anime season.
Sofuteni – Awful. Not my type of show.
Honto ni Atta! Reibai-Sensei – Funny in a random kind of way. Though there are times I don’t get the joke.
Hana-Saku Iroha – I like!! Obviously I just turn off my brains and then enjoy this lovely show. 🙂
Yondemasuyo! Azazel-san – Very funny, but not something I’d like to show to just anybody. Offensive at times but I still found myself laughing a lot.
As for the shows I had high hopes for:
Steins Gate – The male lead is annoying. But I’ve heard some encouraging posts about it so maybe when it’s finished I’ll give it another try.
Moshidora – I waited for it to end and finished the series in one day! That’s how much I liked it!
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-tachi wa Mada Shiranai – I almost dropped this one even before the first episode was over. It felt over-acted sometimes but well, it was refreshing to have something like this once in a while.
Deadman Wonderland – Unfortunately I seem to be averse to violent shows these days. Dropped.
[C] THE MONEY OF SOUL AND POSSIBILITY CONTROL – It hasn’t captured my attention that much. The later half will be unwatched until I get curious about the ending.
Shows I’ve checked out from summer 2011:
Mawaru Penguin Drum – I am not a penguin lover but from what I’ve seen so far I can probably take it. Now I’m thinking whether to rewatch Utena or not.
Uta no Prince-sama Maji Love 1000% – I wanted to at least check this out but it seems there are other things to do so I will pass on this.
Sacred Seven – Intriguing at first but I’m not impressed at the lead. I don’t know why I am averse to most action shows these days. Unless if they contain mecha. 😛
Ikoku Meiro no Croisee – I’m not sure a cute Japanese girl in Europe in a metal-working shop can hold my interest for long. Not really impressed with this one.
Natsume Yuujinchou 3 – The fat cat is back! Of course I love Natsume Yuujincho, so I’ll be watching till it finishes. Already this is very memorable because I found episode 5 to be the scariest I’ve seen from all the seasons. 🙂
Yuruyuri – Not that funny. Not watching.
Nyanpire – Even though a lot of the playing time is taken up by that music video that’s not even that entertaining, the vampire cat is too cute to drop. 🙂
Usagi Drop – The best show of the season I’ve seen so far. Though I have to be careful to avoid spoilers from the manga.
No. 6 – Totally intriguing. I myself was on a sci-fi book reading binge and here comes another sci-fi themed show. Nice.
Blood-C – Every time the main character sings I ask myself why the hell I am watching this show and fight the urge to close the player. It’s making me think maybe Blood+ wasn’t so bad after all–a short-haired, not singing Saya is preferable to a weird, long-haired singing Saya.
Dantalian no Shoka – I’m watching this in place of Ikoku Meiro no Croisee. The quality of the stories isn’t uniform but hoping that there will be some surprise in the later eps.
Nekogami Yaoyorozu – Not funny enough.
