Re: Aldnoah Zero

Episode 1

So basically Urobochi's take on Gundam.

It's more than a little heavy-handed - the final joke was more than a little on the nose - but it was a pretty solid start overall. I've been...

Re: Aldnoah Zero

LinkSword - the first episode is currently on Crunchyroll, so looks like it does have a simulcast.

I generally like mecha and Urobochi is generally fine (with the last mecha series he was involved...

Re: Sword Art Online II

For all its warts and all I rather enjoyed the first season, but this premiere didn't give me anything I felt invested in. I'll see how it goes.

Re: Daily Anime Thoughts

My point is there is no way this kind of story would be good even if they didn't. It is a harem anime dedicated to multiple girls with childhood memory issues, standard feckless otaku fodder, a...

Re: Summer Chart 2014

Terror of Resonance is by far the most interesting looking show to me; it's Shinchiro Watanabe in more Baby Blue mode judging from the PV. I may also watch Aldnoah Zero, though early PVs look...

Re: Daily Anime Thoughts

I don't think Nisekoi's problems are as much with Shaft as they are with the source material. Shaft's animation remained competent if not as inspired as other works, but the concept and cast of...

Re: Ping Pong The Animation

I'm still watching, I'm just rather busy IRL and haven't had a lot to say about the past couple of weeks.

Well you did create the thread. It's worth a look why not.



Yup.

Not the greatest thing ever, but right now it's my second-tier show of the season, after the first tier Mushishi and Ping...

Re: Captain Earth

Last first: The series has given us no effort on the bad guys. They exist as an existigial force; mecha must have bad guys therefore these exist for some reason. By the third episode of Mobile Suit...

Re: Captain Earth

Episode 3
This show is much better at unintentional humour than intentional humour. That is not a good thing.

This episode is a complete obfuscatory mess, juggling ridiculous and lame arcane plot...

Re: Daily Anime Thoughts

Whereas The World Is Still Beautiful (Sordemo Sekai wa Utsukushii) has a visibly low animation budget and yet ain't that bad a show.

Re: Nisekoi

Pretty much. Shaft's bag of tricks have done little to elevate, alas.

Episode 15

Well I guess they realized the first one was disappointing. This has hardly helped matters, alas.

Re: Mushishi Zoku Shou

Settling down to an evening or morning with brand new Mushishi is the single best thing about this anime season; it will likely be one of the fondest anime related memories of the entire...

Re: Ping Pong The Animation

I think it is Peco's destiny to become Smile's biggest cheerleader, when he realizes it's Smile and not him who has a real chance. And also provide a lot of narration on the sidelines.

Re: Ping Pong The Animation

I feel that was established when Kong Wenge wanted to play Smile and not Peco in the first episode, and Kong's sense - reiterated here - that Smile goes easy on Peco.

This episode goes a little...

Because in true sports tournament style the series is establishing our protagonist's arc and also introducing other antagonists. The Dragon and Kaio Academy are...

Re: Daily Anime Thoughts

Or if people on English speaking websites were okay using the English names. You always have to know a soup of Japanese words instead - Shingeki no Kyojin, and that's a short one.

Oh Gargantia. Remember the fanservice episode where our hero is chased by transwomen as tasteless comedy? I remember.

Captain Earth takes its silliness so intensely seriously it's hard to know what to make of it at times. It has a vague, hoary, probably complicated...

Re: Mushishi Zoku Shou

ZetsubouKaiji covered the basic themes better than I would have, but I want to single out the wonder that final shot of the mushi flying out of the seashell in droves. The first series...
