I’ll be busy next season…

Winter 2011 provided us with quite a few anime to note and the next season’s anime look promising. I think I’d be watching more than usual because of the upcoming summer vacation in my country. For now, I’ll go through the shows that I think I’ll be watching next season.

Nichijou

While the title suggests a story of simple, everyday school life, the contents are more the opposite. The setting is a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer or a robot’s arm hide a rollcake. However there are still normal stories, like making a card castle or taking a test you didn’t study for.

This is most certainly my KyoAni/Nonsense fix for this season. Whoever said that anime has to have plot, depth, death, powers and fanservice is watching too much Index. While anime with a great plot and story execution is very nice, it’s not really a bad thing to just sit down and enjoy a nice relaxing anime with nothing to worry about. I wouldn’t want all anime to make me all tensed up and thinking all the time. Continue reading

A Promise to Myself

THIS WAS WHAT I WAS WAITING FOR THE WHOLE EPISODE! Too bad another one of him pops out and eats the corpse...

 

I’ve been posting a lot of stuff about Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica recently. Most of these posts were about my views about an episode fueled by my recently discovered habit of speculation and small “research”. While Madoka Magica is something that I really enjoy, it feels like it lost some of its unpredictability to me because of my sometimes annoying new found habits. I still like to speculate over things unknown but doing it too much really just kills the mood of a really good show (at least for me). Continue reading

Madoka fans are of different natures


Many madoka fans do everything in their ability to make us appreciate the series. Here are some:

Go to image hosting sites such as danbooru or konachan (links will be added later) (too lazy) for all sorts of things, including yuri pairings;

Why? No, Seriously… Why? (Part 2, Yuri Edition)


Being an anime fan and being a big sucker for heartwarming stories above all, I tried to explore different types of anime: shoujo titles, seinen titles and some shounen titles until I had nothing left on what I’d consider then to be morally acceptable for me. Sadly, though, not many series seemed to give me a dose of heartwarming as much as Clannad and it’s second season did. Continue reading

Why? No, seriously… why?

A lot of people wonder and ask me why I like anime so much. Some people I know do watch anime back then, but they what they watch are the usual shounen series like Naruto and Bleach, and very few would even consider looking at the synopses for other anime. I was considered a deviant for quite a while back then for liking drama-driven series like Kanon and Clannad, which they had incorrectly assumed was for little girls aged 10-12.
