Now that I’ve arrived back home from Japan, I can resume blogging about random tangential posts on the various anime I watch. But before we dive into the finales for Nisemonogatari, Guilty Crown, and Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam is a post I intended to have published while I was on vacation but it wasn’t completed in time and left for when I returned. Starting the trend of answering 50 questions was AceRailgun (I recommend you check out his blog) and quite a number of other anime bloggers have already done similar posts since. I meant to have this up weeks ago but it kept getting delayed and was never completed until now. So here are my answers to the 50 questions!
Before embarking on another year of anime and adventures, we need to give a proper close to 2011 and give the year of anime an appropriate review. While the four seasonal reviews provide all my detailed thoughts in a timely fashion, the structure of this post is to give a ranking for the anime of this year, the characters of this year, and a few extra tidbits to recognize this wonderful year and show appreciation it for all it has done.
Despite the most popular show of the winter season still incomplete, I’ll go ahead and write my season review for Winter 2011. It’s not like there’ll be any changes to the scores or how they rank when Puella Magi Madoka Magica finishes, so there’s no real point in waiting an undetermined amount of time to pretty much post the same thing, especially with the other nine shows already complete.
I never thought I’d use the words ‘light-hearted’ or ‘adorable’ to describe a war but Dog Days certainly makes that feat easy. The first episode of kemonomimi anime Dog Days wasn’t anything spectacular or noteworthy, but it presented itself well. And it did what it needed in order to set up the characters, the surroundings, and the scenario for an entertaining and cute anime that virtually anyone can enjoy.
Oh yeah, kinda forgot about this stuff. Moving right along…
There is a barrier that has prevented me from enjoying Fractale and, until now, I always thought it was because the show was wildly different from my initial expectations. That’s true, no doubt, but it’s only a minor issue that’s only relevant to me. The barrier instead is with Lost Millennium. I never have enjoyed anything they’ve done and I feel that they’re an unnecessary distraction to the series.
