September 11, 2009 Leave a comment

With summer ending means fall/autumn is approaching.  With anime, the summer season has been a surprise with the decent amount of shows airing.  However, I cannot say so much about the fall season.  From the looks of the shows that is about to premiere this fall, it looks like many of the shows will be very disappointing.  Here is my preview on the anime coming this fall.

Most of these information is pulled from ANN, anidb, MAL, Wikipedia, and Chartfag’s chart.

Summer Anime 09 Review

August 19, 2009 Leave a comment

I know this is pretty late.  It is about half way through the summer season, and here is my thoughts on some of the anime I have watched this season.

Awesome:
Bakemonogatari – All I have to say is wow.  The animation quality on this anime is great.  It really helps with the HD.  The storyline is very interesting with the couple arcs they have went through right now.  It may not be for everyone since this anime is dialogue heavy.  I mean REALLY dialogue heavy, but if you like dark humor and like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, this might be for you.  Be warned, there are a lot of flashing scenes with words.  Best anime this summer.

Great:
Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei – In typical Zetsubou Sensei fashion, the puns, the parody, and the jokes continue.  If you liked the show, you have no problem liking the third season of it.  If you did not like the previous seasons, you probably will not.

Good:
CANAAN – I had very high hopes for this anime, but it ended up being disappointing compared to my expectations.  While it was disappointing, the show is still good.  The action sequence is well animated, and the storyline is getting really interesting after episode 7.  The plot can be a little weak at times.  This show is like your typical summer blockbuster movie with action with flaws.

Umineko no Naku Koro Ni – This anime is based on the visual novel.  Compared to the visual novel, the anime lacks pacing and character development.  While the anime may have this flaw, the storyline is basically the same as the visual novel.  The storyline is very strong.  If you are a mystery and horror type of person you may like this one.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 –  Good story and good character development.  It might be boring to people and some people may not like the very emo main character.

Average:
Sora no Manimani – A very generic anime with about a girl and a nerdy boy.  The girl is very hyper and into astronomy, and the boy is a quiet person who likes to read books.  They both get into the astronomy club and generic comedy ensues with some astronomy lessons in it.  Some may like and some may not.

Boring:
Aoi Hana – This anime was boring.  Could not stand it after 3 episodes.  The main girl was not a great leading character, and the plot seem to go VERY slow.

Those were the main anime that I watched that premiere in the summer season.  Overall, a decent season.
