Derp.

I can’t believe Fall 2010 is ending already, and I’ve barely touched most of the titles I was meaning to watch, just so I could pay off figures and of course work on my portfolio. Guess which one took priority?

Anyways, I failed to introduce my choices this season at the beginning, so lets briefly go over that first.

Amagami SS – Status: Finished

Technically from last season, but overlapped to Fall.

Star Driver – Status: Haven’t started.

From the plot summary, it sounds kind of sketchy, but hey, I’m willing to give most mecha anime a shot.

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai – Status: Finished

Looked like a good RomCom.

Otome Youkai Zakuro – Status: Episode 1

Now, I generally avoid shoujo-esque animes just because it’s even more plot rehashing than moeblobs in most cases. That and they tend to have these retarded proportions, even more-so than moeblobs. I decided to give this a try anyways just because the art looked nice, and the story seemed somewhat interesting. On hiatus due to time issues. Will probably continue later on.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – Status: Episode 4

Subtle slice of life comedy with maids? Yes please. Hiatus due to time. Will definitely continue.

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai – Status: Haven’t started

Looked interesting, haven’t started due to time. Will probably do it sometime next week.

Fortune Arterial – Status: Episode 1

Started this one the night before, only managed one episode before I had to go for work though. Seems overly haremy, as expected from a visual novel adaptation. Still, the story seems interesting enough so far. Will try to finish this weekend.

Bakuman – Status: Haven’t started

I actually read the manga a couple summers ago, or at least up to where it was two summers ago anyways. I’ll probably start on this after FA/Kaminomi.

To Aru Majutsu no Index – Status:Episode 4

Ironically, the one I was looking forward to the most seems to be lagging behind on my priority list.

MM! -Status: Episode 9

The description itself made me laugh. I had to put this on hiatus due to time though.

Hyakka Ryouran – Status: Finished

At first I was all~ oh God a Queens Blade type anime, with boobies and swordfights and boobies. I was partially right, but it seems like there was a lot more plot than QB. Then again, I never brought myself to finish that one.

Motto To Love-Ru – Status: Haven’t started.

The first season wasn’t too bad, but I just decided to put Motto off for a bit until I had time to finish up the others.

Sora no Otoshimono: Forte – Status: Haven’t started.

First season was lawlworthy, once again, time issues had me putting it off for a bit. Will pick it up though.

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes – Status: Haven’t started.

It looks cute ok?

Yosuga no Sora – Status: Finished

Tis the season for imouto-con? An adaptation of a VN again, but the themes it explored was extremely interesting.

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt – Status: Episode 4

I think I initially started to watch it from the hype and from the lulzy plotline. I’ll explain why I most likely won’t pick it up again for a long time.

Shinryaku! Ika Musume – Status: Episode 9

Goodness, this anime was as cute as the description made it sound. Hiatus due to time. Will pick it up ASAP.

Super Robot Wars: The Inspector – Status: Haven’t started.

I’ve played a few SRW waaay back, not recent enough to remember details though. Then again, I will give it a shot just because it’s mecha.

OVAS – I haven’t started any of these what what faaaaaail >:

Tamayura – Looks cute, probably a slice of life thing too.

Mirai Nikki – Based on a manga, haven’t read, but seems interesting.

Megane na Kanojo – I love RomComs. Derp derp derp.

Koe de Oshigoto – If I remember correctly, this is the comedy about a girl being an eroge seiyuu. Need I say more?

ToHeart2 adnext – I should really finish ToHeart2, I’m on like, episode 6 since fuck forever, ie. last week.

Ambitious season, with little accomplished. I have a lot of catching up to do. My thoughts on what I’ve seen?

Oreimo


This season’s winner for me. Otaku RomCom, with a pair of feuding tsunderes, maids, hilarious situations and mountains of eroge?  I’d almost say they were living the life I would be living if I made Japan my home, which was probably why I’m so attracted to this. Other than Kuroneko.

I’m really hoping for a season 2, and not just the alternate ending, because:

1.Kirino actually started to get on my nerves a bit near the middle of the season, and I don’t know why. It might have been the feuding with Kuroneko <3 or because there was a huge gap between her Tsun and her Dere moments. I’m hoping for a redemption, because she is otherwise a lovable character; hardworking and loyal to what matters to her. In this case, imoutos *coughlolicough*

2.Forget second fiddle, Ayase seems to be sitting out of the story altogether.

3.Needs more Kuroneko.

I’m glad this scene made it to the anime though I’d love to see her carameldansen in her lolita dress just like in the manga. Still not enough though. Ew her Beach Queens figure is hideous and looks nothing like her RAGE >:U

I spent 5 minutes staring at this just now. I should scroll down a bit so I don’t get sidetracked furthe…………………………………………………….. * A*

Hyakka Ryouran


K, so I wasn’t too off about this being Queens Blade-esque, but there was less service than I thought there would be, designs were a lot cooler, animations a lot more stylish, fight scenes were cooler, and there was actually a good storyline to it. There probably won’t be a season 2 sadly, but I really do hope for it. The ending did feel rushed though, I’m still not 100% sure who the bad guy is either.

Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt

Overrated imo. People don’t seem to realize it’s mostly the same jokes over and over again, with little change in delivery or content. How the fuck did Gainax go from Judeo-Christian psychological mecha masterpiece to cock addicted vigilantes and a gay black guy? I probably should finish this before I make such a statement, but the episodes are getting harder and harder to choke down for me. Disappointment.

MM!


The only other anime next to Mitsudomoe! and Mayoi Neko Overrun to give me a stomachache from laughing. Haven’t finished yet, but this is a definite must finish. It looks like the romance part is really starting to kick in too.

Yosuga no Sora


I have mixed feelings for this. I was really hoping they’d take on a more serious tone, and focus more on Haru and Sora, with the others sort of just adding to the story, rather than going omnibus like Amagami and have Haruka bang every one. Except Kozue and Yahiro, even though he did them in the VN. Yes I downloaded the CG set, yes I flipped through them. Yes, the CG was a hell lot better than the animation. Back on topic though, I thought that YNS would have done a lot better as a drama revolving around the incestious relationship than a time travelling porno. Not that I didn’t like it.

Amagami SS


The final 3 arcs + a bonus one to round out the series @25 episodes, and to reveal the event that took place two years ago.

This season’s beauties are Ai Nanasaki, Rihoko Sakurai and Tsukasa Ayatsuji. Of the 3, I’d say Ayatsuji’s was my favourite, just because of how heartwarming the ending was, though Ai’s wasn’t bad either. Rihoko’s was disappointing. I honestly think she’s the cutest of the six, but her arc was pathetic.

Risa’s was cute in her own way, her obsessiveness is adorable, and Mai Kadowaki doesn’t get enough roles.

Why weren’t their more maid costumes again?

Also in the spirit of the imo-con, a Miya arc would have been inviting.

 

Now, normally now I’d talk about Op/Ed/Waifus, but since this season was so slow for me, I think i should skip this part because I really don’t have much to go on. I will say this though, I doubt Kuroneko would have lost her waifu of the season, or of the year, to anyone else from 2010.  She’s even giving Taiga a run for her money. :V

My delusional lifestyle is spiraling out of control, and I’m loving every bit of it.
