Fall season: making the cutPosted: October 14, 2009
As you may or may not know, I have been sick for the past few days. …so sick that I didn’t want to watch Railgun episode 2 when it came out, but forced myself to and got even sicker as a result.
Thus my anime backlog has been growing (especially since Ayako kicked it into high gear with subbing GA), my attention span has been shrinking, and I need to drop a few anime for me to actually have any chance at watching them all.
What I’m keeping fer sure
The Greatest Anime of All Time : this one’s a no brainer.
Nyan Koi! : Great first episode. I like monks. Wait, I mean cats.
Kobato. : Reminds me of Yotsuba. Speaking of Yotsuba, I ordered volumes 2 and 6 from Yen Press, got them, read them, was happy, and then I put them on my bookshelf only to find that their spines and heights don’t match up with the ADV ones. F-F-F-F-FUUUUUU-
What I’ll keep unless I finally go watch Death Note, etc.
Seitokai no Ichizon : Rapid fire jokes, rapid fire references, rapid fire moe, cute main character, pretty female lead, very appealing short female character, etc.
Armed Librarians : Very nice first episode with thought provoking stuff about “Meats.” On the flip side, I’m not that good with anything action (unless it turns epic or has really good character designs). I’m more of a comedy kind of guy.
What I’m dropping
The Sacred Blacksmith : Started out well, but as 21stcenturydigitalboy said, the second episode was a total piece of shit. I couldn’t believe how bad it was.
Sora no Otoshimono : I hate ecchi anime.
Kampfer : LOL THIS MUTS BE A GOOD ANIEM IF I MAKE LOTS OF SECKS JOKES RITE??? LOL INNUENDOES ARE TEH FUNNIS!!!
Sasameki Koto : Oh look, another show about lesbians.
11eyes : Too lazy to open the first episode.
What I never should have laid eyes upon
Letter Bee : I’m going purely with gut feeling on this one. It looks like some man on boy action is going to break out at any second, so screw this show.
Kimi ni Todoke : A bunch of stereotypes and cliches. And it looks ugly. It’s like somebody saw how crappy everything looked at the very last minute and photoshopped in a truckload of shoujo sparkles and glitter, making it look even worse.
What never should have been dredged from the depths of hell
Miracle Train : Just saying the name makes demons cry out in pain. Plus your tongue falls off, your teeth shatter, and your brain turns to mush.
