Anime Nekus and I Watched Together

Neku and I like watching shit together. In order of watched.
1 Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

Watched the entire abridged series. By far the best thing we've watched together.

2 The Day I Became a God

The Day I Became a God

Watched in part because it became too unbearable to watch alone. 1/10

3 Attack on Titan The Final Season

Attack on Titan The Final Season

Watched one ep because it became too unbearable to watch alone. 2/10

4 Shakugan no Shana Movie

Shakugan no Shana Movie

We both watched all three seasons so mild nostalgia but unfortunately also shit. 3/10

5 The Place Promised in Our Early Days

The Place Promised in Our Early Days

Boring AF. Went from 5/10 to 2/10. Not even the violins could save this one.

6 Shakugan no Shana S

Shakugan no Shana S

I know a show is painfully boring when I'm gonna remember our side conversations better than the show itself. 2/10.

7 Shakugan no Shana OVA

Shakugan no Shana OVA

What we expected: 

  • Beach episode with trashy fanservice
  • Yuuji caught between a lame cat fight.

What we got:

  • Hotsprings episode with borderline nudity
  • 'Boys will be boys' and entitlement towards female bodies
  • Barely any involvement of the main 3 charas but still a useless recap at the beginning

2/10

8 Toradora! The True Meaning of Bento

Toradora! The True Meaning of Bento

Actually really sweet extra episode. Completely unnecessary to the story but plenty of fun and wholesome ending. 6/10

9 Hashiri Tsuzukete Yokattatte.

Hashiri Tsuzukete Yokattatte.

For a 60 min total runtime, was repetitive in all aspects. (Dialogue, backgrounds and animation) 3/10

10 A Journey Through Fairyland

A Journey Through Fairyland

Review While watching I could only think about how much worse this was than Disney's Fantasia. Also plant fetish.  3/10

11 Voices of a Distant Star

Voices of a Distant Star

Probably the worst character art I've ever seen. Nice backgrounds, music, and CGI but otherwise pretty lame. Less boring than Place Promised only because of the length, but the 6-min Dareka no Manazashi still seems like a better use of your time. 3/10

12 Children Who Chase Lost Voices

Children Who Chase Lost Voices

The rewatch moved this from a 6/10 to a 2/10. Beautiful to look at but I found the Ghibli-copying trashy.

13 Forest of Piano Movie

Forest of Piano Movie

Fairly well done although standard music movie. Great soundtrack and CG suspiciously difficult to detect. 7/10

14 Twilight Q

Twilight Q

Boring and confusing. The first short was at least better than the second, but both were essentially purposeless. 2/10

15 Saint Young Men OVA

Saint Young Men OVA

A Catholic and an atheist watch Saint Young Men... Both find it mildly offensive and insanely unfunny. 1/10

16 Galaxy Fraulein Yuna

Galaxy Fraulein Yuna

Extremely wacky and some of the humor was too chaotic for me. But it hardly showed that this show was based on a video game, the OVA was still very entertaining without prior knowledge. 6/10

17 Galaxy Fraulein Yuna Returns

Galaxy Fraulein Yuna Returns

A more drama-centered sequel that made me miss the constant chaotic humor of the first OVA. Solid directing by Simbo and great OST but nothing really amazing overall. 5/10

'This opening scene reminds me of FF X2.' ~Nekus

18 Tamayura

Tamayura

All around wholesome cute girls, and they actually do the cute thing. 8/10

19 Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou

'Are you still awake?'

'Somehow.'

Btw I'll be dropping my lo-fi single and AMV soon. 3/10

20 Shirobako Specials

Shirobako Specials

Nekus rewatched with me after I finished Shirobako. A decent enough watch but mostly for meta reasons.

If it was a real show I give Exodus somewhat of a shot but definitely drop Third Girls Aerial Squad. 5/10

21 Bride of Deimos

Bride of Deimos

Pretty weird and kinda... still in the animation but decently engaging and one good 80's track. 4/10

22 Kageyama Tamio no Double Fantasy

Kageyama Tamio no Double Fantasy

After 27 years, this short was finally subbed! The first short was more entertaining than the second, but both had good visuals and told a decent story in 12 minutes. 6/10

23 Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko I

Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko I

Reasons to watch this short:

  1. Banana and Crocodile Garden
  2. Yamamoto Yohko

Reasons not to watch it:

  1. Uhhh everything else.

4/10

24 The Devil is a Part-Timer!

The Devil is a Part-Timer!

First full show watch attempt! ...and dropped. Very unfunny, I expected much more comedy like a Jahy or Dragon Maid, but much more urban fantasy like Blue Exorcist or Shana.

Highlights of the experience: 1) a gun 2) Mr. Nice Guy 3) butt shot replacing the foot shot in the ED.

Most eps were so uneventful we had nothing to even talk about.

25 Tsurune

Tsurune

The first show watch!!

Highlights: ~ L E A F ~ a very ill-fitting OST ~ KyoAni failing to make cute boys ~ the show failing to explain archery ~ ghost-sensei is not a ghost but mc's true love ~ simultaneously dramatic and boring ~ actually decent final episode

Bad news, we started talking about what show we'd watch next starting at like episode 3. Good news, I got to know Nekus a lot better from the amount of tangents we got onto. Rating based on how much I was even able to pay attention. 4/10

26 Tsurune: Dangerous Shoot

Tsurune: Dangerous Shoot

A waste of time. 2/10

27 Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park

'Fire fairy best girl.' ~Nekus

4/10

28 Otona Joshi no Anime Time: Kawamo o Suberu Kaze

Otona Joshi no Anime Time: Kawamo o Suberu Kaze

Smut plot without the sex. 2/10

29 Mermaid Forest

Mermaid Forest

Not a complete waste of time. 4/10

30 Mermaid's Scar

Mermaid's Scar

See above.

31 Otona Joshi no Anime Time 2

Otona Joshi no Anime Time 2

The second ep of this was decent, plus Kamiya. The other two were trash. 4/10

32 Modest Heroes

Modest Heroes

3 shorts:

1) Boring

2) Infuriating

3) Nonsensical

33 Memories

Memories

1) Magnetic Rose - 8/10

- great directing and really awesome music by Yoko Kanno

- fun fact, story is by Satoshi Kon (and I enjoyed it more than his other movies lol)

2) I don't remember the name but boring

3) I don't remember the name but boring

If you're not a completionist please just watch the first one.

34 Genmu Senki Leda

Genmu Senki Leda

Originally watched because it's music themed and from the 80s. Tape walkmans are iconic. 8/10

35 Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Adolescence of Utena

Revolutionary Girl Utena: The Adolescence of Utena

Just watch the show instead please. 5/10

36 Christmas in January

Christmas in January

'Is this payback for my payback for your payback?'

'Stop saying garbage.'

We'll probably forget about this in a month, but at least it was pretty watchable and delivered on the title. 4/10

37 Choujikuu Romanesque Samy: Missing 99

Choujikuu Romanesque Samy: Missing 99

Some really cool animations, backgrounds, and music but not much else. Completely useless girl mc but sick grandma, so I guess not totally misogynistic... 3/10

38 Fire Tripper

Fire Tripper

1st of the Rumic World Trilogy adaptations. Kinda funny reference to the title (if that was intentional). Pretty entertaining overall, 6/10 Review by Nekus

39 Maris the Chojo

Maris the Chojo

2nd of the Rumic World Trilogy adaptations. Boring and not funny. 2/10 Review by Nekus

40 Laughing Target

Laughing Target

3rd of the Rumic World Trilogy adaptations. Sick atmosphere even though it doesn't quite go anywhere. 4/10 Laughing Target

41 Engage Kiss

Engage Kiss

Nekus: 'DICK POISON 10/10'

Why is the blonde dude important??

42 Sukeban Deka

Sukeban Deka

"Fucking hardcore," awesome visuals, amazing sound direction. 100% would watch again. 7/10
