I don’t even need to finish this season to know what the fan favorites are gonna be.

Best Breasts on a Female


Pink-chan, Captain Earth. Word gets around. I’m sure she does too.

Cheapest Weapon for Cosplay

Water Pistol

Water Pistol, Captain Earth.


Cutest Super-Gay Couple


These two, Captain Earth.

[Kaitou]_Captain_Earth_-_01_[720p][10bit][00C44BC9].mkv_snapshot_11.46_[2014.04.16_18.17.39] [Kaitou]_Captain_Earth_-_01_[720p][10bit][00C44BC9].mkv_snapshot_11.49_[2014.04.16_18.18.04] [Kaitou]_Captain_Earth_-_01_[720p][10bit][00C44BC9].mkv_snapshot_11.52_[2014.04.16_18.18.10]

This was so close to being a metaphor for gay sex. So close.


Least Interesting Segment in an Anime Series


This speech, Captain Earth. Even though it was only two sentences long, it was still a speech, which makes it terrible.


Least Accessible Show to Deaf and/or Blind People

Captain Earth

Captain Earth.


Best Naruto Spinoff

Again, Captain Earth.

Again, Captain Earth.


Watch every one of my predictions come true once the season ends. Ain’t saying to call your bookie, but call your bookie.

Justinnnnnn says:

Oh I’ve seen BONES do this shit time and time again. Give me a boner and get me all excited with the first three or four episodes of a new mecha fucking BONES!!!-awesome series, then shit all over the story and end it like any other bad shounen does, only here they don’t explain wtf was going on through the last two episodes and suddenly everyone is smiling even though everything went to hell and BOOM CREDITS.

By looking at dem screencaps, I can see this is a cross between AO and Star Driver, both of which had legendary horrible endings. I will not honor BONES by downloading my free illegal fansubs of their show every week, but rather wait and see how it all ends. Fuck you BONES, fuck you.

Dr. Cakey says:

You’re wrong about Star Driver, due to the fact that you’re wrong.

El Huesudo II says:

Yes, he is wrong about Star Driver. That show was just 100% bad from start to finish.

Justinnnnnn says:

You took the words from my mouth Huesudo, damn you…

Uichan says:

Yeah. I enjoyed Star Driver for what it was, but AO was just pure shit. Like, it didn’t even try to make a modicum of sense…

Ash says:

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but this post makes me think you’ve only seen a single show this season. I wonder what it could be? Oh, yeah, I’ve got it. It’s Dai Shogun.

NexXKinn says:

Bitch slap doesn’t enough to make shit mecha.

Fuwaa says:

I like the guy in the background on the first image. You can tell what he’s looking at with that smile.

FalseDawn says:

So does this mean Captain Arse is the anime of the season too?

El Huesudo II says:

To be fair, whoever keeps watching BONES shows deserves what they get. It’s like expecting KyoAni not to do character assassination for the sake of moe moe, or like expecting Sunrise not to try to sell you toys. Or like expecting Deen to make a show without LGBT stuff.

arahman41 says:

Pupa had any Y-?

Nash says:

More shounen-ai? Great! Thanks D_S, will wait for the shotacon dj’s.

BakaProxy says:

more like Captain Wurth

kokujin-kun says:

>Best of 2014

Holy kites this season sucks.

Indeed. Such a sad state of affairs, huh…

B1 says:

Well, there’s always PingPong.

raingod says:

Can you think of any other popular sport not an anime yet? PingPong!

alt0 says:

What about darts, snooker or curling?
Also, I don’t know of any bowling anime.

Anonymous says:

Those are neither popular nor sports.

alt0 says:

All right, then I’ll try skiing and snowboarding.

Fuwaa says:

There’s a manga called Nononono about skiing… Wouldn’t be surprised if that one got an anime.

There’s also actually a manhua called Bowling King, but I doubt that will get animated because >manhua.

Enamelthyst says:

Ice hockey?

Cricket? [Whoops. Kyojin no Hoshi has a special “Cricket Version” for India. Guess that counts.]

Kayaking? Whitewater rafting? Diving (or free diving, for that matter)? Water polo?



Frisbee-based sports?


Or some Japanese sports: Takagari (best sport ever)? Gateball (has a yonkoma, but no anime)? Bo-taoshi? Pan kui kyousou?


Competitive eating?


There are worlds and worlds of sports out there anime hasn’t touched!

Anony says:

>Competitive eating?
Slayers. As a bonus, it also has magic and shit.

Enamelthyst says:

Nah. By that logic, Utena is a fencing anime. We need something with a sports anime structure here—if they aren’t spending entire episodes discussing exactly how to train your stomach and using obscure medical terminology to do it, it just ain’t good enough!

Dark_Sage says:

Hunter x Hunter had people who specialized in eating. And then there’s Toriko, which took HxH to retarded levels of retardation.

Enamelthyst says:

All set in fantasy worlds, sadly. (Well, perhaps every sports anime is really fantasy anyway.)

But God, oh God, I want a whole anime just about Menchi (the version voiced by Hibino Akari, of course). It doesn’t need to be good or anything. I just want a chance to watch her cookin’ and huntin’ and buyin’ rubber bands by the pallet-full and snoozin’ on Buhara’s bewitchingly bulgy belly…

Matt says:

Im waiting for a martial arts manga/anime that is actually about martial arts and not a stupid shojo/harem/supernatural nonsense manga with martial arts as an excuse to beat the shit out of people. I am aware of a “slightly” successful manga called Hajime no Ippo but that’s american boxing => different

Fuwaa says:

Have you ever seen the manga called Holyland? Street-fighting with an emphasis on how martial arts is different in sports and real fighting.

There’s also Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru, which, although I didn’t like it much personally, has over 250 chapters and running, and focuses on martial arts as a high school sport (so there’s at least a decent chance it’ll get an anime).

Then there’s one about girls doing mixed martial arts called Teppuu, but it runs in a bimonthly magazine so updates are slow. There’s some social commentary but mostly it’s them beating the shit out of each other.

Matt says:

I have not heard of any of those (until now). Thanks for the recommendations, I’ll check those out

Edward_Bebop says:

You forgot arm wrestling, an anime about a delinquent who skips school to be the #1 arm wrestler in the nation and a teacher takes him under his wings and helps him pass high school and he wins the title in the end and all is well.

Enamelthyst says:

No, I had XARM on that list.

norcia says:

I’d rather much Bones would go back to doing something similar to Darker than Black S1 and FMA brotherhood…maybe GoSick too. This is really banal stuff.

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, but it’s familiar enough that I can’t help but tolerate it.

norcia says:

Indeed~ Ermahgerd.
