I recently finished watching all of Oreimo on the week-end. I don’t know what it is about the show but I can’t help but love it. Its definitely not the greatest of shows but it is pretty entertaining. The reason I love this show might be due to the fact that I, too, love anime/video games/cosplay. This kinda makes me relate to Kirino when she says that they are a part of her. I feel the same as her because anime has been in my life since I was 10 years old (almost 16 years!).
The one thing that bothers me about the show is Kirino’s bitchy/selfish attitude. If I were to treat my big sister the same way Kirino treated Kyousuke, my sister would lay a WWE smack down on me. They were acting more like a highschool couple then siblings. Kyousuke did so much for her that most of the time he would suffer serious consequences (like his own father punching him in the face when he lied and said the adult game belonged to him and not Kirino). I also blame Kyousuke for not having a spine and not putting his foot down to Kirino’s constant, and rather selfish, demands.
Other then my little rant above about the main characters, I look forward to watching the extra episodes that are coming out in the Spring/Summer. I give this show 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend this to people who are passionate about anime like me.
Moving on. I am now watching two new shows (along with Hetalia Season 2 and Romeo X Juliet from my DVD collection). They are: “Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?” and “Toaru Majutsu no Index II”.
My first impression was “Oh boy, is this going to be another emo anime series?” when I just heard the title of the show. Got down to watching an episode a few nights ago, and it got some chuckles out of me. Who would have thought that a magical girl’s choice of weapon would be a pink chainsaw? Also, the Vampire Ninja girl is rather hot despite her rude/bitchy attitude. Necromancer (Eucliwood Hellscythe) is pretty cute too (and no, not cause of Ayumu’s fantasies of her calling him “Onii-chan”). Haruna is annoying so far and makes me not have much to say about her. Ayumu……wow. He is in the same misfortune department as Kamijou Touma. Classmates snapping photos at Ayumu for unintentionally being dressed in Haruna’s magical girl clothes? Ouch. Sucks to be him! XD
All in all, I’ll be watching this show to the end. I am amused so far.
Currently on Episode 4.
I really loved watching the first season of this show. I have yet to watch Railgun because I wanted to continue on with season 2. The story, the music (love Mami Kawada/KOTOKO music), the characters, and everything else is hard not to like (ok, except for Kuroko as she is bleeping annoying). Index is so frigging adorable and Touma is hilarious (poor guy though). I am curious as to how that one Sister (new character named Agnese Sanctis) is able to get away with wearing a short nun dress. Aren’t nuns suppose to cover up their flesh completely?! And those ridiculously tall shoes. Seeing her walk in them makes me cringe at the thought of how painful that would become.
This series/franchise has got me completely hooked and I will be buying the series when its available in Canada/US (yes folks, Funimation has licensed the first season of Index and Railgun).
Currently on Episode 4.
