Boring, boring, and Spring anime

It's been two weeks so you'd think that I have something interesting to talk about but I don't. I will say that I've been tackling too much backlog at once. Not only that, I also need to stay on top of things with current anime.

I love pictures like these.

I finished Mirai Nikki. I wasn't planning to watch this back in Fall but I ended up having to watch it. I wasn't into it at first. It was mostly the fact that the side characters are much more interesting than the two main characters. Yuno was good but she wasn't excellent and Yuki annoyed the hell out of me. Sadly, I had a hard time getting through this show. It became a, "Damn, I have to watch THIS now." situation. But something happened a few episodes into the second cour of the show and Yuki manned the fuck up. This was when the show became awesome and I started to have a good time with it. Though, the last four episodes felt very bland to me. The ending was just that, an ending. It was nice and I don't know how they could've made it better. I did hear that they changed it from the manga version, though I doubt that's any better. This was an okay show with some awesome parts but not entirely worth it for me. It had a lot of great concepts and characters but I felt like they didn't utilize them correctly.

Here are the shows I'm watching this season.

Accel World - One that I was looking forward to. I'm liking it so far and Kuroyukihime is cute.

Eureka Seven Ao - The sequel to "everybody acts like a fucking brat" the anime. I have a lot of thoughts on the first series but I won't into it. Merely picked it up out of curiosity and I know it'll stir up a storm since it's BONES and it's a season 2.

Fate/Zero part 2 - Kind of obvious so I'll spare details.

Hyouka -  Haven't seen anything about this but the promotional art. I've been looking forward to this as well. It's KyoAni so you can't go wrong there.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead - I was looking forward to this. First season was great and second season is always welcome.

Medaka Box - I knew about the manga and always wanted to get around to it. Anime got announced so I decided to just go with that.

Nazo no Kanojo X - Manga had popularity and I wanted to see what it was about.

Ozuma -  Considering that this is almost over, I'm not sure if I should include this here. Thoughts on this soon.

Sakamichi no Apollon -  The new Watanabe work and it shows. Also, I forgot this was an anime about music so that was a great surprise.

Sankarea - Again, I wanted to read the manga but anime was announced. I like the visual style of this.  It kind of has this goth feel to it.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia - Picked this up out of impulse and was pleasantly surprised. Having lots of fun with this.

Uchuu Kyoudai - A great story about following your dreams. Good mix of comedy and drama.

Zetman - Picked up on a whim as well. I heard that the show changed a lot from the source material but I don't really care. The show seemed great and that's all that matters.

As I said, I have a lot on my plate currently. There are other shows that I wish I could watch as well but I just can't. Oh well, can't be helped.


  1. Most of the stuff airing this season is stuff I've already been reading the manga for. I tend to enjoy originals more, so I think I might just sit this season out entirely - or perhaps pick up E7AO.

    >Tig hates anime

    More like the clichés that they stuff anime with. It's all the same crap~

    1. I never thought I'd say this but you're full of crap. (´・ω・`)

  2. I'm surprised, but the only thing on there I'm minorly interested in seeing is the second season of Kore wa zombie desu ka. I think I'd be into the second season of E7 if I had seen the first...well whatevs.

  3. I dropped Mirai Nikki because Yuki annoyed me too much. It's good to know he's better in the second half, though I still don't think I'll pick it back up and finish it. I'm not sure if I'll watch Accel World beyond the first episode for the same reason.

    I'm loving Kore wa Zombie desu ka? of the Dead. It's stupid as hell but very funny, which is rare for anime.
