Anime I’m Watching This Season

Monster Musume anime 2

I have plenty of anime that I’m watching this season. What are you watching? Is there any you would recommend?

There were certain anime that I enjoyed in the previous season like Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? High School DxD BorN and Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma. There were more that I watched but those three are the ones in particular that I especially liked. However, I found that once I started to review them I was subconsciously analysing my thoughts and feelings as, in my head, I was going to annotate my thoughts.

I wasn’t planning to speak about every episode, it just sort of happened. In a way, that probably did take away some of the enjoyment of watching anime, especially Dungeon Girls. I find that I’m actually enjoying Dungeon Girls ten times more since it stopped airing. Why? Because I can sit back and enjoy it and not concern myself of blogging about each episode.

That’s where this anime summer season comes in. So far, I’m really excited and impressed. I genuinely believe that this is going to be my favourite anime season of all time.

Summer Season List 2015

Street Fighter Food Wars Parody

Bikini Warriors: It’s Not a Bikini If It’s Armour

Bikini Warriors anime

Initial Thoughts: When it came up with that sequence of majestic music and the girls displaying their fighting style I thought that was going to be the opening theme. As soon as it finished I was like “Is that it? Seriously?” Haha.

This is going to be a fun and light-hearted anime. The girls are wearing special armour in the form of bikinis. Haha. I didn’t realise that this was only a five minute episode.

I don’t really know what’s going to happen but I’m more than happy to spend five minutes of my time watching this weekly. =)

Non Non Biyori Repeat

Non Non Biyori Repeat anime

Initial Thoughts: I’ve been looking forward to this for a very long time and I wasn’t disappointed.

I was very confused at first. Why was Renge re-joining the school? Did she move up a year? What happened to Hotaru? Why was Hikage still in the country? I was left very puzzled for the first ten minutes until Hikage got on the train to Tokyo. This is a flashback showing what happened when Renge enrolled into the school. Then it showed Hotaru right at the end moving in. I could then relax and enjoy everything.

It was funny but very unfortunate when Hikage left her mobile phone behind! Haha.

Everything from the characters, the scenery, the music, it’s all as I expected it to be. Relaxing and tranquil. I really like that march that the four girls do in the opening song. I think so far I prefer the opening and ending songs from the first season but I think it’s the case of letting the new songs grow on me. I have no doubt that they will. =)

MONSTER MUSUME EVERYDAY LIFE WITH MONSTER GIRLS

Monster Musume anime

Initial Thoughts: As a Monster Musume fan I was very concerned on how this was going to be adapted. But those concerns completely left me the moment I started to watch this.

It’s much, much better than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t burst out laughing as I normally do with the books but I think that’s because I knew what was coming. However, I still let out light chuckles. I’m really pleased that they kept the charm and have the eyes of the main guy all plain white as that’s how they are portrayed in the manga.

I find this anime really cute and in some ways touching. It’s more than just comedy but there is little to no drama in it and quite frankly that’s my kind of story. I kept almost welling up as I felt touched at Miia’s happiness.

It’s a shame that I had to watch this as soon as it was released, as now I have to wait for next week. I can tell that I’m really going to enjoy watching this show. I can’t wait. =D

Rokka –Braves of the Six Flowers-

Rokka Braves of the Six Flowers anime

Initial Thoughts: I’ve never heard of this show before but I really did enjoy the first episode. The girl with the bunny ears is really cute. I sort of guessed straightaway that she was going to be an outdoors type of Princess. Haha. It’s going to be worth watching this just to watch her bunny ears bounce. =)

SHIMONETA: A Boring World Where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist

Shimoneta Anime

Initial Thoughts: This is incredibly daft, eccentric but very funny. The style of humour and quick pace does remind me of D-Frag. I never thought I would see the day where a perverted girl would walk around wearing a pair of knickers on her head. Haha. It’s a clash of impure thoughts verses pure thoughts. Who will come out triumphant? I can tell already that this show isn’t going to take itself seriously and I’m certainly going to enjoy watching this.

THANKS FOR READING

Normally I would probably review the first episodes of Non Non Biyori Repeat and Monster Musume straightaway, but I have decided that I’m not going to do that. Instead, I’m just going to sit back and bask in each episode as they come. I won’t rule out anime reviews but I will just see how I feel. I will probably continue reviewing Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma weekly. It’s partly because I’ve made a commitment but mostly because I want to. In any case I’ll just see how it goes. =)

Thanks for Reading. =)

My Anime Rankings

Locodol Anime

I decided to create this blog to explain how I rank different anime. If you would like a reminder on how I rate shows just see the link here, My Rating System.

I don’t compare anime with each other I just rank them base on how I feel about them. For example, I would normally rate Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun with a One Thumb’s-Up, but as it has made me laugh a lot I bumped the show up to One Thumb’s-Up and a Pinky. There are some anime in the One Thumb’s-Up and a Pinky that I don’t like as much as the others. I like Gonna Be the Twin-Tail! and Cat Planet Cuties! more than The Testament of Sister New Devil. I like those shows more than One Thumb’s-Up, but not quite enough to give them two. As a compromise I’ve gone half way by giving One Thumb’s-Up and a Pinky.

I decided that I’m not necessarily going to review every single anime that I have watched or am currently watching. With some of them I don’t necessarily have anything to say except that “I think it was good” or “I thought that was ok.” I enjoyed the anime World Break: Aria Curse for a Holy Swordsman but I don’t really have anything to say about the show at this moment in time. I enjoyed it and I liked the concept of the characters remembering what they did in their past lives. However, I don’t have anything to say about it. I just liked it. I may write a review about it in the future but not anytime soon.

Here is my ranked anime list.

From now on when I review anime I will add the link of this blog to each one. I will put it under the conclusion heading of the review and right next to the “My Rating System” link. I don’t know if I will do a separate blog to list my ratings for manga, films and games. I’m happy at the moment just doing this.

Thanks for reading. =)
