This week: how the cinematography aided in the visually magnificent episode plant planet of Space Dandy, thoughts on the resolution of Gotou’s girlfriend in Samurai Flamenco, remembering the first half of Magi, and trying to make sense of what Manaka lost in Nagi no Asukara.
Much like last year’s Day 8, when I wrote about sticking with a bad anime to find it somewhat entertaining and certainly worthwhile, this post will be able an anime I never gave a fair opportunity to when it aired in the past only try it now and find it enjoyable and definitely worth watching. It serves as an excellent reminder of the potential gems and stars among the forgotten or ignored anime of seasons or years bygone. Resting in obscurity or uncertainty, these anime were rejected or dropped due to flawed research, lacking prospects, evolving tastes, time constraints, or for whatever reason we decide not to watch an anime. However, when the opportunity appears, taking another chance with these anime may completely reverse our opinion on it simply based on the fact that we actually are watching the anime rather than just speculating about it. For me, that anime is Yuru Yuri, an anime I gave a second (or first?) chance to in 2012 and have loved it ever since.
In April of 2012, I attended my first anime convention, Sakura-Con, the premier anime convention in the Pacific Northwest. Although I’ve had numerous opportunities to attend the convention since its inception in 1998 and even made legitimate plans to go while in high school, this year was the first that I actually went to. For three days, I witnessed and participated in a paradise created by and intended for anime fans such as myself and my experience has provided a permanent impression on how I watch, understand and appreciate anime.
With a number new of Spring anime airing over the next two weeks, it is again time for another comprehensive (or close to it) season preview. This upcoming season appears to be brimming with optimistic hopefuls and candidates eager to display their best but the sheer number of anime debuting over the next few weeks creates some issues when determining a viewing schedule and for those with limited viewing capacity. As with previous seasonal previews, this preview will focus toward my impressions toward each series and my initial likelihood of watching an anime, not watching an anime, and how I think the borderline anime will perform. With that said, it’s time to explore the Spring 2012 anime season.
This week: a surprisingly emotional iDOLM@STER episode, the lone person who cares about the truth in UN-Go, and a spotlight on Taichi in Chihayafuru. Oh, and the order of anime in this post has flipped, so now it’s reverse. Yippee!!
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.
