Summer Anime 2017 Part 2





Part one here
http://lostlittlegeek.blogspot.com/2017/07/summer-anime-2017-first-impression-part.html


Keppeki Danshi Aoyama Kun/Cleanliness boy! Aoyama Kun

This follow a soccer player name Aoyama who is a massive germaphobe . He doesn't like being touch by anyone or anything that he deems is dirty. The first episode was funny and wasn't what i expected from this show, mostly giving its technically a sport anime as well, but i like Aoyama character and his interaction with his team mate Zaizen.

Princess Principal
This takes place in 19th century  London and follows a group of four spies. Their leader just so happens to be a princess. The first episode was ok. I am still looking to see where its going and why the princess is there in the group.


Centaur No Nayami/ A Centaur life

Follows a Trio of monster girl in high school. Its this season moe monster high school anime series. Its nothing special too it but it's a cute show. Its happen to have short segments which makes me wonder why wasn't this made into a five or ten min short. Either way it a cute slice of life moe show.

Jigoku Shojo Yoi no Togi/ Hell Girl Fourth Twilight 

 
This one is kinda baffling, not plot wise plot wise it follows the same as the last three season. for the most part it looks like Emma Ai the series main protagonist will be challenge by a new girl who sees Emma Ai as not necessary. She seems to be some kind of supernatural being like Emma but on the good side. The last Hell Girl season aired in 2008 so it kinda odd that they would make a Fourth season now in 2017.A perfect time to air the fourth season would have been 2010-11 but that's just me. The fourth season it actually pretty good so far and im actually interested in this good vs evil premise they are offering this season.

Honorable mentions coming soon.

Summer Anime 2017 First impression part 1






The summer anime season started and there are ALOT of good anime series this season. While spring only had a good handful of series worth watching it looks like we will be spoiled this season.

As usual see whats airing here and here



Fate/apocrypha

 Another Fate/ series. This one take place in the future after the Grail wars however, a family has the grail and now two fraction (red and black) has to fight it out to see who will fight to even get the grail again. A interesting twist on the Fate/ series. The first episode didn't hold back on the blood and gore either with caster of the black killing people in the forest for reasons. Im looking forward to see the other servants and how this show is going to turn out seeing how it is a Fate/ series i know its going to be good.



Kakegurui!


Do you like anime's about gambling? Do you like anime's that about gambling that has a batshit insane main female character? well that basically Kakegurui. It follows Yumeko Jabami who transfers into a school where wealth rules and gambling decides students fate. The first episode shows Jabami owning Mary a girl who challenged her to rock, paper,scissors .The whole show is very interesting and i'm interested to see where it goes especially seeing how its about gambling in high school.

 Ballroom e Youkoso/ Welcome to the Ballroom
It follows Tatara Fujita who is having a hard time deciding what to do once he leaves Junior high. Not knowing what to do or what he should be doing he wonders till he ends up at a Dancing school.It drags on with him debating on wheater or not to join but after seeing a DVD of Sengoku the school instructor in a dancing competition he is then convinced he should but not having a job he works out some agreement with Sengoku and he has him dance the box just to see if he was serious. He was and by the end of the episode Fujita has blisters on his feet showing he is serious about dancing.The Dancing  in this show is fluid and very well animated. 

Katsugeki:Touken Ranbu/ Action Picture! Touken Ranbu
 Ufotable at it again with the visuals. It follow two guys trying to keep order and stop the time retrograde army from messing up the space time continuum. As you do i guess?  Seeing how it is a Ufotable works i can expect good visuals and fight scenes and the first episode was packed with them.I can see this being a top 3 anime of the summer seasons.

Aho-girl


I didn't expect this show to be as funny as it is. It follow Yoshiko Hanabatake a girl with a unhealthy obsession with bananas and her classmate Akuru Akutsu or A-Kun and their hijink with Hanabatake obsession with banana's. This show is only 10 minute. Does its job with making you laugh in only 10 minutes


NTR  netsuzou-trap


Cucked: the anime That's basically it. That what this anime is. If you even read a little (like i did) of this you know that is what this anime is.  Bullshitting aside it follows Yuma Okazaki(pink hair)  and her childhood friend Houtaru Mizushina(black hair) both have boyfriends but Houtaru can't stop fucking with(literally) Yuma even though they both have boyfriends!! Their boyfriends know nothing about them kissing behind their back either. First episode ends with Houtaru giving Yuma a french kiss because she got jealous that Yuma boyfriend gave her a kiss so she decided in her mind to one up him by giving Houtaru tongue with her kiss. This is another 10 minute anime even so it manages to tell its story in that amount of time.


Part 2 coming soon.

Attack On Titan Season 2 Final Thoughts







The most anticipated and hyped anime has come to a end. Attack on Titan season 2 was one of the spring season best anime. From the first episode to the last it did not hold back on the blood shed and deaths.

The first half of the series see the group trying to plug up a hole in  the wall only to find out that not only Ymir is a titan but Reiner and Berthold tare titans as well. The later half sees the group trying to get Eren back after Reiner and Bertholdt kidnaps him and a unconscious Ymir reason are vaguely explained in the show.

The last episode basically see everybody trying to dodge titans that Reiner is throwing at the group in his titan form in order to kill anybody trying to stop him getting Eren back (at this point the group gotten him back) People dying and getting injured from the titans and Eren and Mikasa confronting the titan that ate Eren's mom.  Hannes showed up and decided to take revenge on Erens behalf seeing how he's still tied up and Mikasa is still injured. Mikasa end up untying Eren and Eren tries to go into titan form but for some reason can't this time. Of course Hannes had to be the last (important) death of the show because the titan ended up killing him.

All seem lost and while Mikasa give her exposition to Eren while he down and out  on why he give her hope and what not, This motivates him once more and he decides to take on the titan in his human form because fuck logic i guess. Somehow this works and he gains some weird new titan super power that  ables him to control all the titans in the area as they stop attacking everybody and eats the titan that killed his mom and Hannes. During that time everybody decides to get the fuck out of there

Reiner wasn't having any of it though and decides to chase but Eren with his new titan power has the titan attack Reiner. Later in the episode we see a recovering Ewrin who has a beard for some reason with Levi and Pixis in a room when Hange and Connie enters. Hange tells everybody the shocking discovery she made when she researched Connies home town. The titans were residents of Connie home town meaning the titans are human. Of course Connie is in shock because this prove that titan on his house was him mom. Levi ask was all his years wasted killing nothing but humans but Hange said that it was just a theory for now.

The show ends with the group on a wall in uniform with exposition about how the residents from wall Maria has only a week left of food and the person who is operating the giant gorilla titan coming out of it. We still don't know who it is though as they only showed a shadow of the person.


Plot-9
Sound-10
Charaters-9
Animation-10
Overall-10


Unlike season 2 we won't have to wait long for season 3 as season 3 was announced for 2018. This was better than season one but for it to have only 12 episode it was amazing and did a good job at adapting the manga. I still do think Ymir, Bertholdt, and Reiner being titans is lazy writing but the whole Titans are human do put a interesting twist on everybody killing them freely.

Attack on Titan season 2 episode 6








If you are only watching the anime and haven't read the manga i think its safe to say that it would be easier to figure out who ISN'T a titan at this point.

A quick recap of 1-5. There's a titan in a wall, we are introduced to a tall ass speaking titan Connie hometown got wrecked and a titan(probably his mom) was on his house,  And Ymir is a titan. I know im simplifying things but that just about what happen in 1-5.

In this week episode the gang is on the wall to seal up the hole the  wall titan made. One of the scout informs Hange that there is no hole in the wall. Hange is understandably confused but decides to have everyone leave seeing how there is no hole to fix anymore. Reiner and Bertolt pull Eren to the side to tell him that they both are titans. So casually too.  Reienr is the Armored titan and Bertolt the Colossal titan (the tall skinless one from the first season). Eren of course is skeptical of Reiner claimes seeing how they both just gotten back from a massive titan attack and had to be saved by Ymir in titan form before she got wrecked and is now in a coma.

Eren tell Reiner that hes just stress and that he and Bertolt couldn't possibly be those titan's. He tell Reiner that he need to get some rest. This some how flips Reiner Kill switch and he and Bertolt both decides to turn into titans not before they are attack by Mikasa who was just standing a few feet by.  This only helps them become titans faster as they don't need to bite themselves to do so and shock by this sudden revelation Eren is stunned by it all.









So Eren  while still upset and confused decides to take them on in his titan form. So Next week is the massive titan battle between the three.
To be honest the whole "this person is a titan" is Lazy yet interesting writing. Its Lazy because like who else is a titan why not make the whole squad full of titans? it interesting because it does build drama and suspense and it catches the view off guard on who is actually a titan.

Aso Bertolt always look like he was hiding something so him being find out he was a titan wasn't really that shocking because he always look suspicious.

I can't wait to see what going to happen during the massive titan fight between the three.

Spring Anime 2017 First impression Honorable Mentions



Part One

Part Two





Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu_ka?/ What are you doing at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

 It will always be refered to as SukaSuka because that titled is long as shit. Long titled aside it follow a guy who is chared with taking care of weapons. Turns out the weapon were some girls all along. I found the first episode boring and the long title was off putting to me but i still found it interesting to some degree im gonna give it the three episode treatment before i decide to drop it completely.

Kenka Banchou Otome Girl Beats Boys



Girl Beats Boys  follows Hinako Nakayama who gets tricked by her twin brother into going to a all boys school in his steed. There she finds out that its the worst school in all Japan. Everybody there fights to see who is going to be king of the first years (or the school). The first episode see her kick this guy who saves her after she was about to get her ass kicked during opening ceremonies . After she tell the guy her name (she is using her bros Name ) he was ready to kick her ass because apparently her bro is a bad ass or something. This is a short clocking in at only 8min but it does well with getting its story across.


Nobunaga No Shinobi Ise Kanegasaki-hen/ Ninja Girl and Samurai master Ise Kaegasaki arc


The second season of Ninja girl and Samurai Master. Follows Chidori as she help Nobunaga in his quest to make a better Japan. If you haven't seen the first season you will be a bit lost because most of the character who are introduce in the first play a important role in the second.


Cinderella Girls Gekijou/ Cinderella Girl Theater


This  IdolM@aster Short that Follows the daily lives of the Cinderella Idols. They switch from full size to Chibi size. Its a cute short and if you are fan or have watch Idolm@ster Cinderella girls then you might wanna check this out.

Spring anime 2017 first impression part 2






Check out part one here
Part One


Follow what is aring here  http://anichart.net/Spring-2017   and here https://www.livechart.me/spring-2017/tv




The Laughing Salesman NEW/ Warau Salesman New


This show can be a bit creepy and it creep factor mostly comes from the Laughing salesman itself. It follows The Laughing Salesman Name Fukuzou Moguro who goes around granting peoples "dreams" that are in their hearts. Mostly he goes around fucking up people lives by giving them false hope or if they don't heed his warning will just make their life's hell. I don't know if this is a remake but most of the episode are stories of people he meets on his journey around Japan and how he goes out of his way to "help" them. If you don't like the old art style it has  or not a fan mystery/horror anime then this is passable.



Kabukibu!/Kabuki Club



Back at it again with the CLAMP anime. Its been a while since we had a anime from CLAMP. Kabukibu! Follows Kurongo Kurusu and his friend Murase Tonbo as they try to get member to start a Kabuki Club. CLAMP is going to CLAMP so of course there were people with disproportion body parts. So far the story isn't bad and the characters are likeable.


Tsugumomo



Tsugumomo follow Kazuya Kagami a highschooler who carries around his mother obi in backpack. After being attck by a possessed wig and falling off the roof a spirit comes from the obi name Kiriha and protects him.  Both from that point on have to fight spirts/demons possessing items or in its recent episode a whole place.Its mostly a supernatural comedy anime. Also Kiriha reminds me of Ryoko of Tenshi Muyo and i don't know why.


Hinako Note



Not much to say about this one. Its another Moe slice of life anime for this spring season. Hinako Note follows Hinako
Sakuragi. A country girl who moves to Tokyo in hopes of joining the high school Theater Club. Upon arriving she meets Kuina Natsukawa a girl who works at a bookstore and loves books so much she eats the pages(no joke) and Mayuki Hiiragi a girl who often gets mistaken for a child. Hinako finds out from Chiaki Ogino who is a part of the Theater club and is also the landlady for the place Hinako is staying at (and who looks alot like Lain in the face department)  that the club is on hiatus but encourages Hinako to start her own in the meantime.  The show is cute and it reminds me alot of Is the order a Rabbit? 

 Sin:Nanatsu no Taiza/ Seven Mortal Sins



So there is another anime by the same name and no its clearly got nothing to do with that. Seven mortal sins follows Lucifer(yes really)  as She is cast out of heaven and at first lands in a church and meet a nun in training name Maria Tousaka. She help her before the Lucifer decide to give maria a bit of of her blood before falling to the coldest part of Hell. There she meet Leviathan Goddess of the sea and Super Sonico reject. From that point on both decides to fight the sin's. A group of girl who make up the seven deadly sins. At the end of the episode a injured Lucifer and Leviathan return to the church Lucifer first fell too and meet up with Maria again before Lucifer decides to kill her for no reason. the first episode was ok. Typical ecchi yuri fodder but i hope later episode are more action pact that the first. Also this is another anime based of a toy/Figurine Line.


Honorable Mention coming soon

Spring Anime Season 2017 first impressions part 1







With the Winter season over its time to usher in the Spring anime season and it has started off with a bang.

as always you can check whats airing here http://anichart.net/Spring-2017 or here https://www.livechart.me/spring-2017/tv




Attack On Titan season 2/ Shingeki no Kyojin season 2


The one everyone's been waiting for, for about a billion years has finally aired its season two and it wasted no time getting back to the action. This was met with a bit of controversy from a small handful of AOT/SNK fans because instead of having 24-26 episode  it will have only 12 and that pissed them off. Either way im glad its back and it looks like its going to be a very good season. Also more weirdly shaped and meme filed titans.


Kyoukai No Rinne Season 3






Takahashi has a strong fan base seeing how this manage to get a season 3 in this day and age. Nothing much happen in the first episode of season 3 typical hi jinx and what not ,but what we can expect from this season is a actual fucking Villain and not rivals this time.


The Royal Tutor/Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine


This anime kinda surprised me because i wasn't expecting it to be this funny. It follow a small  tutor name Heine Wittgenstein who is tasked with the poor job of teaching the kings four sons, The Von Grannzreich Brothers. The first episode was funny Heine tries to teach them but Leonhard one of the Von Grannzreich bro's tried to lead a revolt but the bro's had other thing to do thus leading Heine to try to teach him . Heine eventually blackmails him into taking a popquiz but reward him with his favorite sweets. I will have my eye on this show. Also did the person who animated diabolik lovers animated this because while i was watching the animation was way to simular to DL idk maybe it just me.

RE:Creators 


Another interesting show,it made by the same person who made Black Lagoon.  The first episode was very action pact  from the start. This anime asked the question "what if your favorite anime characters came to the real world and started beating the shit out of each other?'. It has a FSN feel to it as the main character Souta mangages to bring his favorite anime character Celestia Yupitilia to the real world only to have Gunpuku no Himegimi  a mysterious woman who is able to wield a million swords at once. Both of them duke it out in the first episode until another character intervenes. The fights in this show are well animated and the sound track to this show is very good.


Frame Arms Girl 


Busou Shinki but with a femal lead  and more fighting. That what this anime is bascially. Its based off the toyline of the same name it follows 16 year old Ao Gennai who recevies one of these dolls named Gourai. She first assumed it was a gift from her dad for entering High School but it was given to her buy the company to test out how Gourai operates. This anime Uses CG for the Dolls and regular animation for Ao. The fights between Gourai and Sylet was ok but the CG was kinda distracting. So far its a good show mostly for the fights.


Pt 2 coming soon.

Rewrite Season 2 Moon Terra Hen Final thoughts







Being honest, I didn't like the first three episode of Moon Terra Hen. I know the first three epsisodes of any anime series is key for any watcher it helps them decided i they are going to keep watching or drop that anime. I didn't like moon terra hens first three episodes BUT, I did keep watching because i watch the first season of rewrite and while Moon Terra Hen was way better than the first season, the first three episode are meh.

After the first three episode Moon Terra Hen mostly focuses on Kotarou and the correct timeline on how he actually met Kagari and all the events leading up to how the world was destroyed the first time. In season two we see Kotarou relationship with his parents  , Guardian, Him going to war, Kotarou becoming a traitor in order to help Kagari spare the planet by joining Gaia while being apart of Guardian and Him killing ALOT. Honestly season 2 is more bloody than season one so there that









Story-8
Characters-9
Sound-8
Overall-9



Season two ended with a happy ending which is a surprised seeing how the majority of KEY'S work will leave you a balling mess of tears or in the case of Charlotte  rage quit. It manage to wrap up everything nice even though there was a few minor plot wholes left unanswered Season two had a good ending that wasn't sad or infuriating. The only thing i did have a problem with was during season two there would be moment where Kotarou would have these popup VN choices and i found it pointless cuz it not like we were playing the VN. I get it. It was probably made to see what choice Kotarou was going to make but it was stupid because he was always going to make the right choice.

Nanbaka season 2 final thoughts









One of two second seasons that happen to be better than the first. Nanbaka follows four main prison inmate living in the prison and their daily life there. Soon it focus on Number 15 or Jyungo  who happen to be a bit different than the others there. He happen to have the power to turn his hands into giant blades. Blessed or cursed with this power he struggles internally with the fact that he's different but it takes his inmate friends to reasure him that he's still the same guy they love.

The second season main plot take place around episode 6. After Yamamoto and Rock eats snack given to them by a new guard and a new character Houzuki Sanzou they become hypnotize and attack anybody in their way. Yamamoto attacks Hajime and Rock attacks Jyungo. After subduing them Ninja boy( Tsukumoto) tells them it's something wrong in building 5 so after that info Jyungo and Hajime decide to investgate and Uno and Nico decides to tag along for the lolz.  Of course something was wrong. Not only is building 5 empty but it was a trap. Hajime get caught and is sent the lower level of the building. Turns out that Inori, Building 5 main guard went rouge but he un release Ruka  a new character and a fomer guard at the prison before he was locked away as well as Enki a fomer guard who killed a Inmate with his bare hand and was locked away and he is also Samon Goku building 5 head supervisor elder bro.


Since most of the anime takes place in building 5 we get to see more fighting, the reason why nico needs his meds all the time. He has a split personality and if he doesn't take his other personally with fight to the death. To Trois and Honey actually being fucking useful. The building 5 Arc is the best if you are looking for more action and less drama.


Plot- 8
Characters 7
Jyungo has a unnessecary internal conflict half-way through the Buliding 5 arc which kinda pissed me off.
Sound-8
Overall-8

It would have a higher score but just like the first season it ends on a cliffhanger. I think its getting a OVA but im  not sure if its going to close out the building arc and if it doesn't idk  if we are getting a third season. Either way  i did enjoy the second  way more than the first.
