What’s with the term ‘Fabulous Max’ in Penguindrum? Who does the most damage in BakaTest? What has me unhappy with Tiger & Bunny? And what shows are starting to drag on and tire me out? Keep on reading to find out all this and more regarding this week of Summer anime.
No.6 reminds me of something else every time I watch it. Why was this week the best of Idolmaster and the worst of Ikoku Meiro no Croisé? And am I changing my opinon on a character from Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu II after one episode? All these and other short thoughts on fifteen current anime are all below.
Problems with the tension in Kamisama Dolls? Is Blood-C finally becoming a good or interesting anime? And what would No.6 be like without certain elements of its story? This and other short thoughts on fifteen current anime are all below (although this is several days late, so some of these shows are from last week. Sorry!).
We’re roughly at the half-way point in most of this Summer’s anime, so let’s take a moment to reflect on how the first half of this season has been. I’ve been following 10 shows that started this season (not counting the 3-4 minute shows either) and have continued with 5 from the Spring meaning this will be a rather enormous review. But to begin, some thoughts on how the entire season has done including a common complaint across the board.
Is something missing from this season’s Baka Test? What’s my new favorite sketch in Nichijou? And is there a pattern to noitaminA anime? Plus other relevant or tangential thoughts on this Summer’s anime. (Beware of some spoilers on episodes you haven’t watched yet!)
I kinda regret not starting this style of posts sooner. Not only was the first post of this style rather fun and enjoyable but it also gave me the chance to bring up some of my thoughts and feelings about some of the other anime I’m watching and not blogging. If I had started this style before, I would’ve loved to talk about other shows like Wandering Son, AnoHana, Level E, Tiger & Bunny, and many more. I had so many thoughts and comments about those shows when they were airing but never really posted them here for people to read and ponder over. But whatever, that time has passed and I’m onto the summer season. I’ll just enjoy writing these types of posts and I hope you enjoy reading them.
