「私の力、海賊の力」 (Watashi no Chikara, Kaizoku no Chikara)
“My Power, A Pirate’s Power”
I still don’t know whether or not I’m blogging this show or not, especially since it’s a 2 cour show which I don’t particularly like doing. However, I found myself writing notes about this episode without even knowing it, so I may as well do a small write-up. It’s interesting how the OPs that have become my favourite of this season all have the J-POP sound, instead of the J-Rock sound I tend to enjoy. I really like Mouretsu Pirates, fun and goofy OP and I’m in love with the ED too. Read the rest of this entry
「雑音と不協和音と」 (Zatsuon to Fukyouwaron to)
“Noise & Dissonance”
Right, so I haven’t made a post on the first episode, but that’s because 1.) I still don’t know if I’m fully back on the whole blogging thing and 2.) I’m still going through premiere episodes at the moment. That said, I’m not going to go through the events of the first episode, though I will say this. I miss Kanade already. That being said, I have to pay mention to the OP of this show, it’s one of my favourites this season. Read the rest of this entry
「困ります、先輩。」 (Komarimasu, Senpai.)
“That’s Troubling, Senpai.”
Now, pretty much right after this first episode was aired it seemed the general population of the anime community thought of this show as an almost carbon copy of Onegai Sensei. Now I’ve not seen Onegai Sensei, but I have heard of the series, though I don’t know any thing about. So for me, the premise of this show is pretty new to me. If anything, the character designs reminded me a lot of Toradora!, another show I’ve not seen before (except for two scenes I was in fandubs for). You’ve got the black-haired character with the glasses, blue-haired character, the blue-haired girl, the red-haired girl and the loli-looking strawberry blonde girl who looks a lot like Taiga from Toradora! Both these shows were done by J.C Staff and apparently share the same character designer or something. Read the rest of this entry
「隻・枸雅匡平」 (Seki, Kuga Kyouhei)
“Kuga Kyouhei, The Seki”
I can’t help but feel that the ending to this show was a little worthwhile. It’s gonna be a short post because I have an anime backlog I don’t want. This post is particularly a week late because of Freshers Week, which I briefly mentioned on my NOTICE bar (top of the sidebar). Pretty much partied and raved all week. ANYHOO.

I Don’t Have Many Friends
When I asked Jeremiah if I could return to Two Over One, I honestly had no idea what was in store for anime in the fall 2011 season. He provided me a list, I reviewed my choices, and settled on three anime.
- Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon
- Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
I think Mr. Hopper said it better himself when “one of these things just doesn’t belong here.” Now, I give credit where credit is due, BokuTomo (as I’m lazily calling it) definitely manned up in their preview episode by exploiting the cliches of standard slice-of-life, attire anime and implementing it in a not-sure-if-serious, but nonetheless hilarious she-bang.
Right, it’s time to do this line-up post for the fall season for 2011. As I look at the list of anime being aired, it’s got a number of sequels and remakes, along with quite a large number of original shows. Also, I’ve got InstraClassic back on the site. 2 seasons ago, he provided his first impressions on IS: Infinite Stratos.
As usual, I’ll start with whatever shows that are being covered on the site, then the shows I am personally watching, and then the shows I am checking out. Read the rest of this entry
「セイクリッドセブン」 (Seikuriddo Sebun)
Sacred Seven. It’s finally over. What a ride it’s been. We’ve had our up and downs….mainly downs. But man, were you a big waste of time. I mean, you weren’t horrible or whatever, but the least you could do….the LEAST YOU COULD DO IS END THE SHOW REALLY WELL. Read the rest of this entry
Hmm. Yeah, this episode was all over the place. I’m not even gonna do a full writing for this episode . I’m saving that for the last episode. (I actually haven’t got the time, either.) However, I did get what I wanted: for the story to shift back to Jirou and Subaru but even then, I was still disappointed? Am I a hard person to please? No. I’ve pretty much don’t have much patience with this show, as I feel like I won’t be getting anything out of it at the end.
The only actual thing of note that happened in this episode is that Konoe was relieved of her butler status, not because people found out she was a girl, but because she failed to protect Kanade when she fell down the stairs. I MEAN, REALLY. OH PLEASE.
“Let’s Dig In!”
Before I watched this episode, my girlfriend told me that this episode was a girly one. I had no idea what she meant by that, so I proceeded to watch the episode with curiosity. At the end of the episode, I felt…weird. This episode was hanging in the balance between entertaining and plain disappointing. Read the rest of this entry
