The irresponsibility on behalf of the grown ass adults constantly encouraging a nine-year-old to go 'adventuring' in an area they know to be highly dangerous and even deadly, despite her father's perfectly reasonable concerns, irritates me, but otherwise it's a good show. I'll probably watch it again. Also, I want this weird sheep. I want … Continue reading First Impressions: Sakugan
First Impressions: Platinum End
It's a death game anime. It's got death game anime nonsense. Watch if you enjoy perpetual trauma. 'by nonchalantly informing you that your parents were murdered by your aunt and uncle, and giving you creepy mind control arrows!' I don't care though, so I'm not gonna.
First Impressions: Muv-Luv Alternative
Oh, look, another military mecha anime. Excuse me, miss, how are you making the humming sound with your mouth open? So, I'm conflicted about this one. The animation is off putting in a way I can't quite put my finger on, the boob wedgies look particularly uncomfortable, and I've never been a fan of portrayals … Continue reading First Impressions: Muv-Luv Alternative
First Impressions: AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline
Oooo giant robots. I like giant robots. What even are you though? So, I actually did like this one. I'm not usually a fan of mecha anime, but this was really good. The premise is interesting, all the building blocks for a good show are there, and I'm fairly confident they'll be able to pull … Continue reading First Impressions: AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline
First Impressions: The Vampire Dies in No Time
I stopped playing a video game for this.
First Impressions: The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made
First isekai of the season! Let's see how it does! It's fine. Typical isekai fair - bullied kid gets sent to another world, ends up OP as hell in the first five minutes, inexplicable gets attractive female to fall for him despite being as bland as bland can be, and also the show runners think … Continue reading First Impressions: The Fruit of Evolution: Before I Knew It, My Life Had It Made
First Impressions: Tesla Note
Dear Makers of Anime, please stop making bad CGI and combining it with otherwise beautiful backgrounds. Please stop making bad CGI full stop. Thank you for your time, sincerely, I could not watch more than five minutes of this show before I got a headache at the goddam obvious disconnect between art styles. No. I … Continue reading First Impressions: Tesla Note
First Impressions: The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window
*deep inhale* GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY as verified by wikipedia dot com This is based on a manga series by Tomoko Yamashita. It follows a the adventures of Kosuke Mikado and Rihito Hiyakawa as they exorcise ghosts and flirt shamelessly. Constant talk of 'destiny' and how 'erotic' the exorcism is is to be expected. No, seriously. The supernatural/mystery … Continue reading First Impressions: The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window
First Impressions: Selection Project
It's the year's spookiest premiere season, and this time we're starting off with the genre of anime I always have the same opinion of, regardless of actual content: an idol anime. Pretty. That feeling is, as usual 'meh. It's an idol anime.' This one's based on a multimedia project by Kadokawa Corporation, and it's decent. … Continue reading First Impressions: Selection Project
