Ok today(9 feb) i started watching Beck, it was…. painfully slow i think i watched up to ep 8 or something, but a lot people recommend it, i still don’t get what is so interesting about this anime. On another one, husband back home just nice to finish up Dantalian, it has been on hiatus for a few days, because we watch it together, so i need to wait till he has some time to watch.
My thoughts on Dantalian anime is… what an original concept. Using book as a source of knowledge that can turn to power, depending on who use it. It a shame though Dantalian only has 12 episodes running. And at the end of the show, you still left with so many things unexplained. I don’t know is it because of the budget or GAINAX only want to test the initial response to the show before going more to the plot. I only can say, i am not surprise if Dantalian became a failure. Because honestly you don’t understand shit from only 12 episodes. Like where the 3 book princess originally from, how the girl got trapped on the archive and such. You only exposed to poems and poems at every single episode. Yeah basically our main hero uses poems to fight. The other 2 guys don’t though. Well i am not complaining about the poems like i said earlier, i find it very original, i thoroughly enjoy the show. It just that after watching 12 episodes i left with the same feeling like when i watched Black Blood Brothers, also anime based on light novels, and you left with wanting to know more about the story. The only way is to read the novels, if you can read Jap.
About the comparison with GOSICK like most people compare to. I only can see the loli and timeline similarity, the rest are different, i can not even compare Hugh with Kujo (WTF!?) and GOSICK story more like solving a case based on trick and science, where Dantalian is investigating case and collecting books… WITH POWER. And Dantalian is a lot lovable than Victorique. Honestly that blond loli is annoying the hell out of me, i don’t know why i can finish watching GOSICK, maybe secretly hoping that the ending will redeem the personal hate of the characterization that i had. Oh ya GOSICK ending was so so.
Well that’s all my review and thoughts of Dantalian no Shoka. I won’t mind watching the second season if they are going to make it. Next i am going to watch Ayakashi and 11eyes anime. Haha… 2 ero game combo, i am seriously watching them for the lol.
PS: Forgot to mention, Dantalian opening is one of the best opening anime out there. I probably will write a list about that lol.
