Winter Anime 2016 Week 5

Ice Queens getting defrosted this week. Well, not technically

Characters that we’ve been only getting bits and pieces of finally get their spotlight this week, well. It’s safe to say that I won’t be dropping any of the series I’m watching until the end of the season, even though Bahamut is garbage I still want to see how low it goes. But overall, it was a pretty good week with most of the cast/feel of the series pretty much set in stone for me.

Winter Anime 2016 Week 4

Attempted to get ahead but my Game schedule is just skyrocketing recently. Anyway, thankfully this isn’t as late as yesterday and I’m going to try and keep it that way. This week’s episodes were decent I guess, some still remain the same while progress is getting apparent since this (technically, last) week marks 1/4th of the season.

So let’s get on with it.

Winter Anime 2016 Week 3

Had a weekend of playing San Andreas, Pokemon, Blazblue, and PSP emulation, so I was surprised at how fast time flew. I’m late on this but oh well. The “Three Episode Rule” would apply by the time this gets posted and where I stand so far, I think I’ll discuss in the Music Post to come. Given the shit I’m actually watching, I don’t think it’s that unpredictable but who knows right? Still, something in the back of my head is telling me watch more things which is something that can definitely happen.

Anyways, let’s get right to it.

Winter Anime 2016 Week 2

orOh here we go.

I thought I’d have more of a selection this time around and admittedly, I’m not watching 2 carbon copies of each other but I didn’t end up with some more diverse series but I’m getting busy around this time again so I can’t complain. I’ve got shows I’m going to love to hate, shows I have no idea what to expect, and shows that I can just watch people die in, a nice big package.

But as “diverse” as my plate is, some bad eggs are there and you how much I love to make myself sad. Only one more show was picked up while I completely forgot Gyaruko-chan existed but oh well, no loss there. I was thinking of picking up Kono-sekai but let me be honset with you. I think the died and resurrected to a different, RPG world is a way worse cliche setting than magic battle schools. I’ll talk more about that when the time comes so let’s get this going.

You can already tell what I picked up, I ain’t proud of it but at least I can complain about it.

One Punch Man- Saitama’s Zero Sum Game

One Punch Man- Saitama’s Zero Sum Game

Arguably one of the most hyped up series this season comes to a close.

My only question is, what the hell were people expecting?

No seriously, I heard about this series way before the anime was announced by my friends who were talking about it and I gained slight interest in the series, read a few chapters, and the likes. I knew from the moment I heard the title and the concept that this series would be predictable but in a good way, a real cathartic, the bully gets completely blown the fuck out sort of way. What I can’t seem to understand is, what in the world were people expecting this to be?

And why is it so popular?

Shomin Sample- Of thighs and muscles

Shomin Sample- Of thighs and muscles

The last of Silver Link’s trio of “one-sided budget focus for Rakudai” comes to a close.

With the trio of Battle Harems done, we can move on to less serious topics, although, One Punch Man will probably be looked at a bit more critically given its enormous popularity. Let’s take it easy for now with this one, this will be way less

I actually don’t have anything explanatory or clever to say in the beginning so let’s not waste any time. But allow me to say: This series was practically made for me.

Fall 2015 Harem Challenge Part 3: Anti-Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon- Silver Link’s Guide on Wasted Potential

Here it is, the final contender for our Harem Challenge, Anti Magic Academy: The 35th Test Platoon.

And before anyone asks, yes I skipped a week of episodes but oh well, not much worth mentioning happened.

Normally, Light novel adaptations that are rushed never bother me. This is primarily because I don’t read that many light novels because I am aware through my own research and experiences to know that most of them are honestly the same. Even through my friends am I told that some light novels are completely beyond help and I have begun to despise the very setting “reincarnating in a different” world setting, as well as the RPG-ish setting with stat buffs and the likes. Truth be told, the main problem lies with actual translation works as well, with some of the things I’d want to read not being translated or something similar. So it’s safe to say, most of the time, I’m indifferent to LN adaptations.

To the best of my abilities, I will try to be unbiased as possible. But even so, there’s a lot to discuss. So what in the hell went wrong? Well let’s get down to it.
