Hmmmmm...... Please stop talking, I hate your boring face. So this main character is kind of a brat, and I hate him. Which isn't really what you want, in a protagonist, or so I hear. He's a teenager, so I get him wanting a little space for his mom and all, but he never stops … Continue reading First Impressions: Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?
I haven't see many anime about bands. This might be interesting. A good puppy This is very good. I enjoy it. The characters themselves feel like actual people instead of Anime People™, and the relationships being set up between the main characters feel very natural, both romantically and as friends. I especially like that this … Continue reading First Impressions: Given
I know I'm beating a long dead horse with this complaint, but light novel authors? Please come up with a different design for your main character.
There were a bunch on Funimation today, so I'mma do 'em all at once because bite me. Anime 1: Kochoki - The boy made his own gun, that's great, that's totally not gonna blow up in his face. Looks like your standard historical anime about Oda Nobunaga, but far less sexualized and more accurate than … Continue reading First Impressions – Three in One
Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I hate harem anime. They are far too often gross, and involve far too many little sisters lusting after their brothers. This one isn't any different. It opens with a teenaged boy having a wet dream and involves a 'mysterious girl' leaving said boy an unsigned love confession and a pair of underwear. If … Continue reading First Impressions: Hensuki: Are you willing to fall in love with a pervert, as long as she’s a cutie?
I don't like being scared, please don't be scary. Giant Giant Panda! This show isn't so much scary as off-putting. And kinda weird. At least, so far. This is one of those 'random people pulled into a murder game' anime. It's not really my thing, but I can see how someone might enjoy it. It's … Continue reading First Impressions: Naka no Hito
Disclaimer: I am ambivalent towards idol anime. Dude, she told you her name already, you could at least use it. That said, this one is... fine. Your standard cookie-cutter idols and lampshade main character. The arts decent, and the songs aren't bad. I get the impression this was based on a video game. If you … Continue reading First Impressions: Ensemble Stars
You ever watch something you're completely unable to process? Yeah... This looks a lot like Osomatsu-san, and is weird like Osomatsu-san, but instead of being Osomatsu-san, it's... whatever it is. I think it's about food? I don't know. It's cute. And weird. And very short. This is definitely one of those things you'd have to … Continue reading First Impressions: Hakata Mentai! Pirikarako-chan
You ever want to combine Mecha anime with Magical Girls and see what happens? You should. Photos taken moments before disaster 'Cause what happens is apparently this show. It's a lot of fun, and there's absolutely no sexualization of the girls! So far! I am very depressed that I had to specify that! It's beautifully … Continue reading First Impressions: GRANBELM
This is like Blue Exorcist but with firefighters instead of priests. This bird eats brains. I mean, there are nuns, and a lot of religious imagery, but it's mostly about the firefighters. And when I say firefighters, I mean that literally, because it is an anime and they couldn't possibly be normal, that'd be boring. … Continue reading First Impressions: Fire Force
