Life is really fun at the minute.
I’m enjoying my time spend with my niece. Like most new-borns she does have the tendency to cry a lot. I actually thought that that would bother me but to my surprise I feel ok with it. I see her crying as her way of talking. I managed to stop her crying though one day when I hummed twinkle, twinkle little star. That lasted for 30 minutes. Haha. It wrecked my throat but it was worth it.^^/
I’m progressing more on my stories. I’m not necessarily progressing on the chapters but I am creating a lot of ideas for the plot.
Now, enough about my life, let’s talk about this season’s anime. =D
ANTI-MAGIC ACADEMY: THE 35TH TEST PLATOON
At this moment in time this anime show, along with Shomin Sample, is my favourite from this season.
In some ways, I think the show is rather unique and I think in a way, Kusanagi is unique as a character. I can’t put my finger on why that is. I’m just really enjoying it. I like the set-up that the school has, it has its usual school rooms but it also has special rooms for 35 platoon squads in which certain students are assigned to. Kusanagi and his fellow teammates are part of the lowest platoon, the 35th platoon.
I think it’s funny and I’m enjoying the squabbles between Ohtari and Mari as it’s literally a clash between witches and inquisitors. I thought it was funny when they were trying to one up each other. Usagi’s mishaps are also amusing to watch.
THE ASTERISK WAR
I couldn’t really get into this anime initially as I felt that this has a lot of similarities as Chivalry of a Failed Knight. They both have strong male fighters and a Princess who has travelled from distance lands to study at an overseas academy. However, this show grew on me.
What I like most about this show the most is the colours. I find this really colourful and in a strange way, soothing on the eyes. The scenery is especially colourful. It makes me wonder as to what has happened to Ayato’s big sister. I’m also curious to find out Claudia’s true identity as well, it seems like she already knew Ayato even before he enrolled into the academy.
CHIVALRY OF A FAILED KNIGHT
So far this is good to watch. I find Stella to be really cute both in personality and in appearance. She also has a kickass fire ability which blends in well with her pink/red hair.
KOMORI-SAN CAN’T DECLINE!
This is a very simple and light-hearted story about a school girl who can’t say no to anyone. I can relate to her strongly as I’m not very good at declining requests but there is a difference between being helpful and having self-respect. So far, I think Komori-san is finding the right balance.
Monogatari is a kind of anime that I would describe as an intelligent type show. The directing and storytelling is unique and the plot and art is pretty darn amazing and Owarimonogatari is no different.
However, it’s one of those shows where I have to be in the mood for. With shows like Non Non Biyori or High School DxD I’m always in the mood for them. But as Monogatari is a very intelligent anime I need to watch it when I know I’ll be able to appreciate it. I had my doubts about Ougi but she’s actually grown on me.
This is a really funny anime. I laugh literally at every episode I watch.
I do feel sorry for Kimito though. He has to pretend to have a certain fetish in order to stay at a school in which he was forced to attend. Which either way you look at it, he’s in a losing position. Still, he’s surrounded by many beauties who are socially inept. I say socially inept because the refined ladies are familiar with each other but they’re not well acquainted with the big wide world. So, Kimito has been brought in so he can teach them the ways of the “commoner.”
I’m watching this show as it’s making me laugh a lot but the pretty girls and good characters are a bonus.^^/
THE TESTAMENT OF SISTER NEW DEVIL BURST
I enjoyed this show’s first season and so far I’m enjoying this sequel. I feel that it’s just as lewd, straightforward and packed with action as it was in the previous season. The fights are good and well balance but I especially enjoy the bout between Jin and Leohart. It seems that they’re equal in strength. I’m curious to see Chisato’s connection with Toujou and to see if Kurumi is eventually going to become Toujou’s “servant.” I predict that Toujou will go out of control, more lewdness from all the girls, more cool fights and we find out about Toujou’s mum.
VALKYRIE DRIVE: MERMAID
Watching girls turn into physical weapons by their partners is funny to watch. Haha. I’m not sure if I understand the story itself but it’s still enjoyable to watch. =)
THANKS FOR READING
Is there any show that you would recommend to watch? If there is I would be interested to hear your thoughts. =D
I haven’t been active in writing up blogs recently mostly because I have nothing to say. That and I’m having fun doing other things like reading manga, writing up my story and spending time with my niece.^^/
