Lancer why are you so fuckin' hot? Too bad next week will probably the last time we see him ;__;
Man, this episode once again blew my mind. It has the right amount of action scenes which is awesome. However it was the scene above that I found touching. Diarmuid is a true knight. But as always, being Lancer is suffering. Another one thing that I want to point out is the fight between Tokiomi and Kariya. That fight is supposed to be emotional but instead it was just a plain pathetic fight. Also, looking forward to the duel of kings, Gilgamesh vs Iskandar. Not in a near time though.
While it certainly wasn't a bad episode at all, the animation in this episode was awful. So much QUALITY all over the scenes. I spent most of the time laughing at Murmur's derp face and the lolfighting scenes. The music however, was still good as usual. Especially that piano track that played during the scene in the school. The plot itself... well, at this point we're gonna accept whatever the show threw at us. Sometimes I do realize that the plot in Mirai Nikki isn't better than Guilty Crown. But at least Mirai Nikki is enjoyable (albeit in a wrong way) whilst Guilty Crown isn't. That's a big difference for me.
So, a show about Cthulhu Myths deities depicted as kawaii uguu girls? Japan has outdone themselves once again. And I am sure as hell Lovecraft is spinning in his grave right now.
I admit, this is a cliche anime. MC meets strange girl, girl saves MC from monsters, girl becomes transfer student at MC's school, etc etc. But I don't mind. The first ep was certainly entertaining enough for me to blog the show for the rest of season.
Meet Nyarlathotep, also known as the Crawling Chaos, along with the generic male lead #21753. I've never get familiar with Cthulhu Mythos since I've never read any Loveraft's works (only know them from some video games) but the last time I checked Nyarlathotep was a guy and he's scary. Since this is anime, where anything can happens, Nyarlathotep is now a moe girl with silver hair which certainly is not one of my fetish because I don't like silver haired female characters. And god, dem zettai ryouiki. Certainly not arousing at all.
I think I'm gonna like this show as a guilty pleasure. Also it has comedy. Think it as the filler of my comedy slot for this season which was left by Nichibros.
Pretty good episode of Space Bros. In a nutshell: Mutta went to JAXA to do astronaut test and shit. He passed the test and proceed to do interview and shit. He met a fellow astronaut applicant and they quickly became bros. He saw a beautiful girl and wanted to bang her. That's it. There is some talk about dreams or something too. I liked that part because I know that feel. You know what, I feel kinda motivated after watching this episode. Motivated. I rarely use that word.
The three months wait is over and we finally get to see the continuation of Fate Zero which is one of my favorite anime last year. I got kinda impatient after the last episode of the first season which was ended in a cliffhanger and during the break I finished the novel. I must say this episode lived up my expectation. I read the dogfight part in the novel and thought it would be more awesome in the anime. It certainly is.
So it ended in a surprisingly decent way, with a satisfying final battle. It might seem to be a deus ex machina but I'm not complaining or anything, since the show as a whole is pretty good. The final battle versus Ameno-sagiri only lasted a few minutes but it was the fusion scene that made me excited. That music when Brotag summoned Lucifer was really emotional, I'm certainly waiting for the soundtrack.
They decided to do the normal ending but you shall not worry because the true end will be animated too as a special episode. The bad news is we have to wait until August. I hope it will be awesome and not just some half-assed job.
Overall, P4 The Animation is a pretty nice watch. It's just me but I think the anime only accessible for the people who play the game. Or at least it makes more sense if you play the game. I must say AIC did a good job at this, even if sometimes the animation is kinda weird. It is also one of the best video game to anime adaptation to date. One of these days I'm dreaming about the possibility of the other games in the series to be animated. Someday, maybe.
Ooookay. So they had sex, Yuno axe'd Yukiteru and suddenly they battled one on one to death all in a flash. I love you Mirai Nikki.
The second world explanation was actually quite made sense but poor Second World's Yuno, she didn't see it coming. Yuno got an upper hand because she was supported by Murmur but Yukkii had Minene so that was fair. Can't wait for the next episode and the battle to death.
So, the Spring season has started and instead of the usual harem shit we got at the beginning of a season, here we have Space Brothers. Space Brothers is about two brothers who dreamed to go to space. And Zidane.
The first episode was cool enough. I hope the quality for the rest of series stays as good as possible. Also, OP and ED of this anime were quite awesome. I am not complaining anything. Yet.
Too lazy to upload that huge-ass chart. Look for it yourself.
Anyway, this my watchlist for next season along with the main reason why I want to watch it.
Fate Zero 2 (April 7th) - Because I read the novel and it kicked ass
Space Bros (April 1st) - Because I read the manga
Hyouka (April 14th) - Because it's by KyoAni
Tsuritama (April 13th) - Because it's by Kenji Nakamura
Sankarea - Because I read the manga
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (April 8th) - Because I read the manga
Mysterious Girlfriend X (April 8th) - Because I read the manga
Medaka Box (April 4th) - Because I read the manga
Accel World (April 6th) - Because I read the manga
Zetman (April 2nd) - Because I read the manga
Jormungand (April 11th) - Because I read the manga
Sakamichi no Apollon (April 13th) - Because it's about jazz
Nyaruko-san (April 10th) - Best anime of Spring 2012, the rest can go home
Hah, now you must be thinking those reasons are stupid, right? Indeed it is stupid. Mainly I want to watch them because I read the source materials and I want to know how well they will be adapted to anime. That's all.
I read Fate Zero novel not long after the first part finished airing. My mind was blown. It betrayed my prediction about how it will end. Believe me, the second part of the anime will be more awesome than the first.
Space Bros is about motherfucking bros..... IN SPACE! I wrote about the manga back then. I alos informed that the adaptation will run about 48+ episodes. Wow. The last time a seinen anime run that long was... Monster I guess?
Hyouka will be the return of KyoAni after being absent last season while Tsuritama will be the return of my long time favorite director, Kenji Nakamura. The dude behind the fabulous Mononoke and Trapeze. Oh and he kinda did C last year too. Which was not bad but not too good either.
Sankarea is about moe zombie. I've followed the manga since it was first released so I'm kinda attached to it. It's the same with Tasogare Otome x Amnesia manga. Except it's about ghost.
Mysterious Girlfriend X is, well, a rather bizzare manga. When a friend of mine introduced this manga to me back then in high school, I was surprised with how entertaining the manga is. On the other hand, Medaka Box manga is kinda suck. I dropped it not long ago but since it is adapted by Gainax I want to see how it will turned out.
People call Accel World Guilty Crown v2, I don't think so. Trust me, it's not as bad as that shit. Zetman manga was written by Masakazu Katsura (Video Girl Ai, I"s) whose art is really wonderful. Seriously, I read the manga purely for the art. Jormungand is kinda like Black Lagoon, except a bit boring (at least for me).
Sakamichi no Apollon brings us back the collaboration between Sinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno, also known as the Bebop team. It based on award winning manga about jazz or something so I expect something good. And last, Haiyoru Nyaruko-sanis the best anime of Spring 2012:
