Rock ’em sock ’em robots and fucking cool-as-shit, safety-off villains. Fuck yes.
There’s only so much I can give a show for potential, but goddamn am I hankering for a good adventure anime. And this one feels like a fusion of Mars Daybreak and Xam’d (well, the good part of Xam’d). Please, please, please keep being this good.
Continuing with its theme of “good stuff, but nothing great”, OPM whelms with the consistency of fast food. There’s only so far a soulless-yet-competent series can go, and that appears to be an 8/10.
Still, with plot like this, I can’t say the show is anything but deserving of a top placement this season.
Utawarerumono – Itsuwari no Kamen
The janky emotional pacing ain’t enough to dull this nostalgia for a series I only ever sorta liked. Nicely done, White Fox.
Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru
If you liked Un-Go, Dantalian no Shoka, Gosick, and Kamisama no Memochou, you have questionable taste, but you’ll probably like this too. Same premise as those, except the detectives this time are a bone-loving bitch and a cuckold piece of shit.
Guess which one I’m watching it for.
Episode 2 was pretty fucking terrible, but they’ve got another 10 eps or so to give me something I can pretend is representative enough of the series that it justifies my interest. I’m sure I like this for a valid reason.
Mobile Suit Gundam – Iron-Blooded Orphans
IBO manages to create a compelling drama that involves child soldiers, rather than creepily fetishizing them like you’d get in a typical Western war movie or a Metal Gear game.
I’m sure as fuck surprised that we’re getting a breath of fresh air from a series as generally stale as Gundam, but I’ll take what I can get these days.
Here’s to dead kids.
Lance N’ Masques
A little girl emotionally abused by her dad meets a white knight who soon learns that being a redditor won’t solve anything. Add a whole lot of depression hidden behind a veneer of cuteness and you’ve got a stew fit for a Sage.
But apparently not for the anime fan at large.
Could someone tell me what exactly it is that people don’t get about the show? Cuz while I can understand someone not liking it, I can’t understand what kind of person would actively dislike it.
Subete ga F ni Naru
This is the strongest contender for ending up my favorite show at the end of the season. God, this thing’s got everything going for it — married old guys getting road head from their 13-year-old nieces, and umm… well, I guess that really is all a show needs to be good.
Keep on keeping on, Subete.
Valkyrie Drive ~Mermaid~
Some people will decry this show as mindless, exploitative garbage, but honestly, those SJW tears are half the reason this show gets my dick hard.
The other hal
Hate if you want, but this show gives me something to masturbate to when I don’t have a mirror handy. And that’s why it gets the highest honor an anime blog can give: a legit 10/10 from me.
