Fall season: making the cut

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.

omg shana!!

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.


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.

      Hey, at least I’m not all for shota action, you Letter Bee watcher!

      If there were less boobs and more moe in that first episode, I would watch the show. But boobs the size of mountains isn’t exactly what I deem attractive.

    This may be late, but Mikotoism has finally returned.

    I have picked up virtually nothing this season, so I win.

  4. TJ says:

    I only picked up three shows these season, including of course To Aru… I mean the Greatest Anime of All Time.

  5. Seinime says:

    @title: …Hey.

    @Miracle Train and Letter Bee commentary…LOL

  6. fangzhao says:

    Bah. This season’s looking better than last season, IMO.

    Even if I’m only going to watch 3 – 5 shows this season, at least the ones I’m dropping aren’t ones that had me snoring like Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 and BAKEMONOGATARI.

    On another note, I’m probably dropping the two in the iffy category, picking up Fairy Tail, putting DtB on hold, and eagerly awaiting Trapeze.

    • npal says:

      You actually dropped Tokyo Magnitude and Bakemonogatari? LULZ! The fact that you picked something I consider epic fail so far based on its previous season, my own expectations and its first two eps (your greatest anime of all time) makes me want to troll more but I suppose you like trolling so I’ll stop 😛 Seriously if 4 (supposedly hot) girls are able to make me miss Touma (TOUMA for god’s sake >_>), there’s something seriously wrong with the anime.

      And since I’m at it, Senjougahara pwns everything :p

      • fangzhao says:

        I can’t believe people can bear to watch Bakemonoboringashellgatari and say that Railgun is mundane enough that it makes one miss Speech-making legend.

        Senjougagagahahahararara is a loser.

  7. Yi says:

    I’m assuming The Greatest Anime of All Time is Railgun, and that I agree, at least for this season.

  8. Roy Mustang says:

    Darker than Black II is turning out pretty well. With an apparent lack of competition and gratuitous loli groping, I’m crossing my fingers for an awesome loli ending for Hei.

  9. Roy Mustang says:

    Now that I think about it, the original DTB had a loli ending too. Heck, Hei’s obession with young girls even caused a loli contactor to become so young that she ceased to exist. Hei’s pedoism knows no bounds.

    DTB II: 10 out of 10 so far.

  10. ah-ah-ah-ASIAN BEAVERS?!?!?! (btw, Bidoof happens to be one of my favorite Pokemon… for obvious reasons).

    It’s a shame you don’t like Kimi-ni-Todoke-Doki-Pants =(

    Why is Miracle Train shit tier?

    That’s one of the best anime I’ve ever seen.
