*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
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
Why must all the best anime premiere in the middle of the season when I am predisposed to not want to watch them? You see what I must deal with? Do you see? Fena is good. It is very pretty, and fun, and has pirates and samurai. Who act sort of like ninjas? Maybe? I … Continue reading First Impressions: Fena: Pirate Princess
Premiere season is over and I do not appreciate all of these goddam straggler anime! Hey, quick question, is that wine, or is she having an Elizabeth Báthory moment? I'm pretty sure that's wine judging by the consistency, but... That said, Jahy is good. Basically, the Demon Lord's second in command is forced into the … Continue reading First Impressions: The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!
This... exists. This kid yeeted herself off a building. It was, somehow, the right decision. You know the drill - high school kids get sucked into another world, some of them get superpowers, they act like shitty teenagers, etc etc. Star Cheeked Character is either the Big Bad, or knows more than he lets on. … Continue reading First Impressions: Sonny Boy
Well, hello there. This is an idol anime. It's a good idol anime, the main character having stage fright is an interesting twist, the art is cute, and I didn't immediately hate any of the characters (despite some... annoying neglect of boundaries one of them participates in: 'No' is a perfectly acceptable answer, no matter … Continue reading First Impressions: Love Live! Superstar
This one looked stupid, and it is! It follows the exploits of the main character whose name I can't be bothered to remember as he's isekai'd into a parallel world to work for a black company. He's dearest dream is to be a NEET (no education, employment, or training), but I'm not entirely certain he … Continue reading First Impressions: The Dungeon of Black Company
This looks like something I'm not gonna like. You know that character that is just overwhelmingly positive and sweet and nice and you're supposed to like them, but they're just so loud and incapable of respecting boundaries that you can only handle them in small doses? Yeah, one of the main characters in this is … Continue reading First Impressions: Kegeki Shojo!!
Administration, yay.... I fully expected to be bored going into this one, and I was correct. Administration is difficult to make interesting, even at the best of times. While I appreciate the attempt to do a different take on the whole summoned hero saves the new world genre, it would have been nice to have … Continue reading First Impressions: How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom
What I thought I'd get from the first five minutes: angst and drama as a result of a traumatized child's cursed book. What I got: These dumb boys gay (maybe). It's good, though. If you're into slightly creepy vampire transformations and dumb boys being dumb and possibly gay, I suggest you check it out. Also, … Continue reading First Impressions: The Case Study of Vanitas
