UN-GO, Ben-To, Guilty Crown - first impressionsY

11 NOV

OK, second blog here, site failed to post the whole thingie so I'm gonna write it again >.>

The autumn season looks really nice with these 3 series, Ben-To, UN-GO and Guilty Crown. I don't have much to write about them, since I only watched 3 eps of each anime, but I can at least share my first impressions. 

1. Ben-To

Never thought that chasing half-priced bentos could be such a philosophical matter! This series takes bentos to the next level, and I'll be damned if I don't become a wolf someday [LOL]. Nice character design, very refreshing idea, and lots and lots of lols. It makes me think, as awkward as it may seem, of Sayounara Zetsubou Sensei and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya combined. Yes, weird combination, I know, but the result would be.... Ben-To! 

2. UN-GO

I love this. I really do. I love the character design, OMFG it's beautiful, I love the idea, the plot, Miki-sama, and Inga. Can't wait to see where this goes, and I love the idea of brilliant minds clashing [Death Note, huh?]. 

3. Guilty Crown

Am I the only one sensing Escaflowne hints around here? I don't mind, I just think it's so... in my face. Beautiful, just beautiful animeation, I have to say, I was in awe from sec #1 onwards. My jaw dropped at the landscapes, character desing, sky, colors, light.... Makoto Shinkai, are you there? And yes, it makes me wanna check the game. I just hope the plot is at least half as good as the animation. [To be honest, this one makes me think of Higashi no Eden and Escaflowne, and that is not a bad combination, huh? :D]

Well, that's it for now, will be back for more rants about these 3 series. Thank you whyface for recommending these to me :D you kinda saved my ass haha

Im pretty sure that ben-to is unanimously regarded as the surprise/sleeper hit of the season, so much fun! *brandishes honor seals*

I am, hum, more than a little taken with Un-Go as well :D Completely obsessed with it, perhaps!

I dig most of guilty crown, however I cannot fucking stand the male lead. He kills every single episode for me with lengthy bouts of indecisiveness and whining about how mean and sad the world is et cetera. Massive Shinji-factor. But I'm getting a lot of TTGL vibe with it lately as it feels like Gai is going to pull a Kamina and maybe that will trigger some positive change in the whiny brat! so perhaps it will shape up soon!
