I don’t even know who reads this deserted blog anymore but for those who do have a post! ＼(^o^)／
It’s been a while since I actually enjoyed more than maybe 2 shows per season but here I am Fall 2012 and I find myself watching 5 series!
Chuunibyou demo Koi Ga Shitai!
This anime is awesome because it makes fun of itself. Most shit recently has been so Garu-Stu (*coughSword Fart online) and this show pretty much says “lol grow up child.” The show is about a guy who acted like Lelouch in middle school but he matured and wants to put all that behind him. Unfortunately he runs into a girl with big thighs and tiny feet who’s brain is still stuck in her childish delusions. I normally ship the main guy with the main girl but I really can’t stand Rikka’s stupidity. I actually prefer that brown haired classmate girl but I know she’s gonna lose ( ；∀；).
From the producer of Kodomo no Omocha and Fruits Basket this is the ultimate anime for old fags and shoujo fans yeaa! And you can totally feel all the Kodocha/Furuba vibes if you watch this show. The fox dude is also voiced by Tachibana Shinnosuke who is pretty damn good with that dummy head mic in Otome games (;´Д｀)ﾊｧﾊｧ. Romance Comedy & Shoujo at its best!
Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
NUKOS! NUKOS EVERYWHERE. Okay so it’s a bit deeper than say, Nyankoi. It’s about a protagonist who loves cats and to be able to live with his nuko Hikari, he moves into a dorm fulla extremely gifted wackos. On top of that more cats join in so until he finds homes for all of them, he can’t move back to the main dorm. On top of this, the dorm leader asks him to take care of a famous artist who’s a lazy bum that can’t even dress herself. Probably because she’s a famous artist and was rich enough to get butlers and the like to take care of her. Despite drawing beautiful paintings, she suddenly has the urge to draw BL manga so she came to Japan :lol:. The relationships between other dorm characters are really interesting too and I’m enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would. If you brushed it off thinking it’s a dumb fanservice harem anime, I recommend watching the first 3 episodes.
Sukitte ii na yo
Another shoujo anime but it’s a little more dark than your usual fluffy romance. The guy’s a total douche in the past but he’s fallen for the lone wolf heroine because she kicked him in the face So now he’s become do-M hoihoi for her and he wants to make her his though due to the unstable nature of the heroine she falls for him immediately. Something seems rather fishy to me so I’m dying to see what happens. Seems like the hero, Yamato was a huge manwhore and now his past is catching up to him.
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Well this seems to have caused a brewhaha in the blogosphere because of the word “rape” being used lightly. Meh I’ve already said what I want to say and frankly I’ve seen worse so it doesn’t bother me. We got politicians saying that “rape baby is a gift from god” so I think honestly your anger should be taken that way instead. Otherwise I find the show endearing and it almost feels like the heroine’s trying to tame this rifraf while he grapples with his feelings of friendship vs love. In the meantime the gariben heroine is starting to see that there’s life beyond the textbook. Another shoujo anime I’m enjoying this season.
I dropped Little Busters after 2 episodes because Komari’s voice, and the lead male’s voice grated my ears. Yes I know the lead male is Horie Yui but she’s not someone that can do decent male voices sorry Hocchan. K was pretty fucking gay (lawl) and Oniai was just terribad the moment 3 random girls started living in his house with no explanation. Magi was pretty ホモォ┌（┌ ^o^）┐ as well and episode 1 was too balls for me to continue (along with the fact that every woman in that show is a slave of some sort.) I ended up dropping Shirokuma Cafe at ep 26 cause while it was fun at first I guess I just got bored of keeping up with more of the same. Hope everyone else is enjoying the fall season!
