Initial Thoughts- Spring 2011


Tiger & Bunny:

I found the first episode to be quite enjoyable. I've never really been into superheroes, but this show has me intrigued. The animation was nice and clean, and the soundtrack was pleasant. The main character seems like a cool guy, and I can't wait to see more of him and his new partner. I'm really hoping someone dubs this in the future though, because sometimes it was hard to keep up with both the subs and what was actually happening.


Nichijou(My Ordinary Life):

I honestly don't know what I just watched, haha. This show, to me, is very reminiscent of other series like Azumanga Daioh and Yotsuba&!. It's really silly, in a strange way.


Dog Days:

I don't know if I can take this show seriously. It's just so ridiculous. But oddly enough, I really like the concept, so we'll see how it goes from here. I love the fact that they wage war via a Ninja Warrior-type challenge. xD


Hanasaku Iroha:

I can't recall a series ever capturing me quite so fully within the first ten minutes. And Hanasaku Iroha just keeps getting better. I found the cast intriguing and refreshing- not too many obvious stereotypes. The music and animation are beautifully done, and overall, there's just a feeling of warmth and down-to-earth familiarity that just makes this a very enjoyable episode to watch. I have a feeling this will be a favorite this season, and am anxious to see where this seires is headed.



I'm a little confused by this show, but I suppose it wouldn't do to explain the entire plot in the first episode. It's got potential though, I think. An intriguing concept, to be sure. I just wish I didn't have to wait a week to see what happens next.



Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai:

... This show really didn't give me any kind of idea what kind of show it might be, other than the fact that there's going to be lots of fanservice. There were a few seconds that might have been plot-related at the very end of the first episode, but other than that... I don't have any idea what's going on.


Sket Dance:

The first episode of this show was so fun. All the characters are interesting, and the whole concept, while not exactly new was well executed. This looks like it's going to be a slightly cheesy, feel-good anime.


A Channel:

This show looks like it's going to be a silly slice-of-life type story. Cute, and perhaps amusing but not much else is going on here. I don't see anything spectacular happening with A Channel, but I am looking forward to future episodes.


Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi:

Two of my favortie things- yaoi and an inside view of the industry. Even if the plot doesn't become amazing, a few more kisses like the one in this episode will more than make up for it. I have a feeling we'll be seeing more humor in the future as well, probably due mostly to the main character's odd co-workers.



I thought this might be a cute sports-themed show. The character design probably shoul have warned me though... While it is about sports, this show appears to be mostly ecchi, with lots of middle-schooler panty shots. However, it is pretty amusing, so I might be able to forgive Softenni if it doesn't fail too hard.
