Winter 2016 – Week 8 Anime Review

koukaku_no_pandora-08-nene-clarion-smoke-fire-hood-cat_ears-nekomimi-robot_joints-introductionsThis week: why I detest the style of narration and extended “flashback” in Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, captivation with the advancement in fighting in Hai to Gensou no Grimgar, powerful, simple, and weird shots in Dimension W, and why I consider Koukaku no Pandora to be a slice-of-life anime.

durarara_x2_ketsu-04-namie-shingen-seiji-shinra-knocked_out-comedy-thumbs_up-gas_mask-lab_coatFor Week 4: adoring the transformation and westernization of the setting in Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, the authenticity, weight, and significance of battles in Hai to Gensou no Grimgar, why the letterbox formatting is my favorite directing decision of Boku Dake ga Inai Machi, and disruption in the sense of community in Durarara!!x2 Ketsu.

12 Days of Anime (2015) – Day 8 – Giving a Sequel a Chance (Even Though I Never Watched the Original)

soukyuu_no_fafner_dead_aggressor_exodus-08-festum-azazel_type_walker-mark_nicht-mark_sein-mech-alien-red_sun-showdownDay 8 of my 12 Days of Anime has traditionally been reserved for recalling an experience in which I watch an anime that I normally wouldn’t watch.

Sometimes, I don’t watch an anime because it looks bad or because I forgot about. Other times, I don’t watch an anime because the first season was disappointing or I never got around to watching one of those anime classics.

Spring 2015 – Week 5 Anime Review

yamada_kun_to_7_nin_no_majo-04-toranosuke-romance-lovey_bubble_vision-bento-blushBack during Week 5: the indecisiveness of Plastic Memories and why it doesn’t know what it wants to be as an anime, how changing the powers in Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo changes the series dynamic, background characters beginning to differentiate themselves in Hibike! Euphonium, and cute girls being immune to still-image “animation” in Ninja Slayer from Animation.
