Summer Anime 2014

by on

So, last season was a disaster, mostly because it was nothing but light novel adaptations. This season is much better because I'm sticking to manga adaptations and sequels, with 11 in total.

1. Barakamon

One of the more original series on this list, it's about a calligrapher who moves to the country to improve his skills. He makes friends with the townspeople, particularly its troublemaker.

2. Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal

A reboot of the original 1990's series, but this one follows the manga much more closely (no filler and a less whiny protagonist). However, it's a bit of a disappointment, mostly because it's a bi-weekly series.

3. Free! Eternal Summer

Season two of the swimming anime. No reason not to watch it, really.

4. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

How can I put this? It's like the anti-shoujo series. It's about a shoujo manga written by a guy (total dissonance) and the heroine, Nozaki, helps him out. She also meets his friends, whose personalities are completely opposite of their appearance.

5. Himegoto

The cute one is male. It's a comedy about a boy whose forced to crossdress and his classmates. There's also his younger brother (apparently crossdressing is genetic) and company.

6. Jinsei

It's kind of like the first part of Medaka Box, with a newspaper club running an advice column. It's pretty light-hearted with enough fanservice.

7. Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus

Season three. The chronology is: the first half of season one follows the manga, but the second half doesn't. Kuroshitsuji II is also 100% anime-only. There are also a few fun OAV's, but I don't think they're canon. Book of Circus picks up after the first half of season one.

8. Rokujouma no Shinryakusha?!

Let's just translate it as "Invaders of the Small-Ass Apartment." A guy gets an apartment, but a ghost, a tribe of underground people, an alien, and a cosplayer/mahou shoujo all wants dibs on it. It's funny so far, but let's see what happens when the plot kicks in.

9. Sabagebu!

"Survival Game Club." Its humor stems from how self-aware it is. After all, you don't think high school girls would be shooting real guns at each other, do you?

10. Sin Strange+

Few good pictures, so I took from season 1. I've also seen it stylized at 'Shin Strange+," so who knows? Anyway it's season two, so now you can get more butts.

11. Yama no Susume Second Season

More mountain climbing girls. What I find funny is that season one had 12 episodes at three minutes each, while this has 24 15-minute episodes.

Eighth Anniversary and Spring Anime 2014

by on

I joined CNET back in 2006, but it doesn't really exist anymore. And I know spring season is over, but I need to get this out of the way.

1. Gochuumon Usagi wa Desu ka?

Probably my favorite show this season, Is the Order a Rabbit? is a show about girls working in a café and there are a lot of rabbits. Expect a lot of girl things, café things, and rabbit things.

2. Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara

If Her Flag Breaks, or Gaworare, for short, is a light novel harem series about a boy who can see flags, e.g. death flags, victory flags, love flags, etc. Honestly, I thought it would be pretty bad but it does get better.

3. Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to

Probably the funniest show this season, it's about a manga artist perving on his co-workers. The episodes are only half-length, so definitely give it a shot.

4.No Game No Life

Everyone seems to love it, but I don't. It's just another cookie-cutter writing light novel to me. I guess the actual games are good, but there are so many reasons I can't take this show seriously, one of them being it doesn't take itself seriously.

5. Ryuugajou Nanana to Maizoukin

Definitely the most passable series on this list. Detective girl is great, but the rushed and unexplained story isn't.

Cinco de Mayo is Tomorrow and Then I Have Two Midterms

by on

Two and a half things I don't care about.

This semester, I like two of my professors (even if one is unaware of how hard he is), but one class is so boring; I'm always sleepy in it.

I started Pokémon Black 2 last week, and, aside from the story, it's better than Black in every way.

Over spring break, I spent the entire week playing Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. That's why there are no Songs of the Day for an entire week. But first, here are your 11 mots.

Winter Anime 2014

by on

Well, this quarter is going better than the previous one. I guess the material is easier, or by previous teachers were worse.

I'm really only watching three full-length series this season. The other six are much shorter in duration; at most seven minutes.

1. Chuunibyou Demo koi ga Shitai! Ren and Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren Lite

Season one was decent and had a nice ending, so a sequel is technically unnecessary. But whatever, there are some good moments.The Lite is series of shorts online that give you extra character interactions.

2. Onee-chan ga Kita

A guy gets an older sister and she's a brocon. It's probably the most generic title on this list and a skip if you don't like it.

3. Pupa

I can't say much without spoilers other than it's a monster/horror series. The episodes are five minutes long, so watch a few and decided if you like it.

4. Robot Girls Z

Think of it as a parody/reboot of the old Mazinger series. As long as you don't take it took seriously, it's pretty entertaining.

5. Sakura Trick

This video gives you a better summary than I can.

6. Strange+

I think it's about these detective kids. It's strange and reminds me of Scooby-Doo.

7. Super Sonico the Animation

The mascot of Nitroplus gets her own anime after countless figures. Basically, she's perfect. She's an 18 year-old girl who gets good grades at university despite never attending lecture, she works as a model, and helps out at her grandmother's bar when she has the time. Also, she's in a band.

8. Tonari no Seki-kun

A.K.A. "The Master of Killing Time." Seki is a boy who will do literally anything in school except study. It's probably my favorite anime this season, and since the episodes are only seven minutes long, it's definitely a must-see.

I also have Seitokai Yakuindomo* on reserve, but I'm waiting to finish the OAV's first.

Autumn Anime 2013

by on

In my defense, the reason I haven't posted is because I've been really busy. I get homework everyday and one of my professors assigns some of the most hair-pulling problems. I also have two midterms in the coming couple of weeks.

I don't even know if you can see this because of GameSpot's new layout, but let's try. Note that I haven't actually started watching most of these, but they look fun.

1. Kill la Kill

This is basically a reincarnation of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. It's made by the same people and awesomeness.

2. Kyoukai no Kanata

I'm not sure, but I guess it's Kyoto Animation doing a murder/supernatural/mystery thing. At the very least, it's not moeblobs for the sake of being moe.

3. Miss Monochrome

A few years ago, Yui Horie made a drawing. Then that drawing got its own TV series. Miss Monochrome is a five-minutes per episode series that is a must watch for fans of the seiyuu. If not, it's basically just Vocaloid: The Anime.

4. Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Comedy wo Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru

With a title like that, you know you've got a winner. I can't even remember what the official shorthand is. Anyway, it's a bout this guy you is given a multiple choice quiz everyday, and how he answers will affect his real life, e.g. Will you A) find 100 dollars on the floor, or B) have a naked girl falling from the sky land on you? It's somewhat fanservicey.

5. Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai!

It combines idols and pro-wrestling. What you see is what you get. A lot more ecchi.

6. Super Seisyun Brothers

Despite it having the initials SSB, it's not an anime about Super Smash Bros. Each episode is five minutes and it's about these two girls who are best friends and their younger brothers who are also best friends. There may also be some romantic tension.

Summer Anime 2013 + What You Missed in the Past Month

by on

This time, I really regret not posting in so long. To summarize what's happened, I turned 21 years old on Tanabata (I have the same birthday as the Hiiragi twins and a few other anime characters) and I attended my UCLA orientation.

Today, I picked up my pre-order of Tales of Xillia: Limited Edition from GameStop. Get it during its first print, and it'll come with a lot of bonuses. Also, I bought Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, thus completing the trilogy so far.

Anyway, this season I'm watching 11 series, a number I'm not exactly proud of.

1. Choujigen Game Neptune: The Animation


The anime adaptation of Hyperdimesnion Neptunia, obviously. You might want to play one of the games first (it doesn't matter which, since the stories are self-contained) so that you're familiar with the characters. It's such a great 100% female, self-parodying, fourth wall-breaking, personified console war series.

2. Free!


I'm sure you've heard about it. I can't really explain it, but it's actually good (Kyoto Animation has done much worse). At least try the first episode.

3. High School DxD New


Second season. For an ecchi series, it's pretty good. Just make sure you watch the first season and its epic end credits.

4. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai: Megami-hen


The World God Only Knows: Goddess Arc. Third season. Again, watch the first 2 TV seasons and the OAVs.

5. Love Lab


Completely skippable. The main plot is one girl who claims to be a "love sniper" is giving advice to everyone else in an all-girls school. It does have its share of funny GIFs, though.

6. Maji de Otaku na English! Ribbon-chan


Technically, it's from last year, but whatever. One of those "English teaching" anime. It's self-insulting jokes get old pretty fast, but it's only five minutes per episode.

7. Monogatari Series: Second Season


The naming is weird, but it's actually the third TV season. First was Bakemonogatari, then Nisemonogatari (which admittedly, was mostly fanservice), and then Nekomonogatari as a TV special. Coming soon, Kizumonogatari, the prequel movie.

8. Recorder to Randoseru Mi


The show gets worse every season (this is the third), but I'm already committed. At least they're introducing more characters. The tall kid on the back is a 10 year-old boy, and the little girl in the front is his 17 year-old sister.

9. Ro-Kyu-Bu! SS


The "SS" stands for "second season." Still the best show about primary school girls playing basketball.

10. Tamayura: More Agressive


Most... f***ing... aggressive...show...ever! It's a show about a girl who likes taking pictures (seriously, that's the complete synopsis).

11. Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui!


Or, Watamote, for short. Basically, it's You: The Anime. Probably the only must-watch this season.

Here's to a Fabulous Summer 2013!

by on

I haven't posted in over a month and a half. It's such a shame, since I missed out on so much.

First, I missed on my 7th anniversary of joining CNET. Next, I missed my junior college graduation. I'll be attending UCLA in the fall, but I have 3 months until then.

I plan to go through several of my Tales of games in anticipation for Tales of Xillia. I also want to watch several TV shows like Hey Arnold! and play through Generation V of Pokémon if I can.

I want to talk about Saber Marionette J for a minute. If you don't know, it's a classic anime from the 90's. As a whole, the series is only OK to good, depending on the episode. There are so many more media, like manga, but I cannot find any information about them. It's such a shame that an iconic series is just forgotten.

Here are several Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica games for you to enjoy

Shoot the Kyubey

Mami Head

Trigger Happy

As a bonus, here are The 50 Worst Inventions and your standard cat video.

Anyway, this week you get 52 mots. Please look through them and tell me if they're actually good or if I just overdid it.

Spring Anime 2013

by on

So, after an embarrassing typo in my previous blog title, in the past month in a half that I've been absent, I've done nothing. I do have to study more this semester than I have previously, and I have two weekly quizzes, but that's no excuse.

I Platinumed Hyperdimension Neptunia and I'm excited for Tales of Xillia's Collector's Edition.

I have at least three dead batteries in Pokémon Crystal, Ruby, and Emerald. Luckily, I don't have to worry about save files.

I don't know how I'm this lazy, but I still haven't finished anime from the Winter 2013 season. Therefore, I haven't watched any of these yet even though I have a total of 22 episodes downloaded.

1. Haiyore! Nyarlko-san W


It's season two. Just more moe anthropomorphizations of your favorite Lovecraftian monstrosities.

2. Hataraku Maou-sama!


From what I can tell, it's about a demon lord who wants to take over the world, but has to work part-time at a McDonald's. Reception is that it's very funny.

3. Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko


Other than the title, I don't really know what it's about. However, it was probably the post anticipated anime of the season, so it's worth taking a look, at least.

4. Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai 2


Again, it's a season two. I have even less to say about this series since it's so well-known by now.

5. Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru


I'm watching this series because, as the fansub group says, "shows with 'Ore no' in their names are awesome". I'm guessing that this is one of the more generic titles on the list and I have absolutely no idea what it's about.
