Fall 2015 Anime Opinions – Episode 02: The Best Thing About Me Is the Me Part

If the format of these weekly posts ain’t 100% intuitive, I’ve only watched the second episode of everything in here. It’d get confusing as fuck if I did it any other way.

 

Dropped/10

Spoiler:

Attack on Titan Junior High

Fuck AoT Middle School

Without a near-lethal dose of Adderall, I cannot see myself tolerating this show for another minute. I mean, fuck, if I couldn’t even stand Nyoro~n Churuya-san for more than two episodes, what chance did this megas tumor have?

 

 

Dance With Devils

Oh boy, another pointless backstory!
Oh boy, another pointless backstory!

Diabolik Lovers may have set gender relations back a few years with its glorification of rape, but at least you can’t say it was as skull-boringly boring as Dance With Devils is. Yet the biggest tragedy of all is how these Twilight-lite series waste such cute outfits on throwaway MCs.

;_;
;_;

Please, Japan, can we have a do-over on these? I’ll almost forgive you for not greenlighting a second season of Ben-To.

 

 

Osomatsu-san

Ass Touch

For all the low points this series has (and there are many), the one or two high points in each episode easily make up for them. But… I just can’t masturbate to it. Dropped.

 

 

Bad/10

Spoiler:

Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai

Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai - Necro-kun

If the show hadn’t thrown a yandere at me, this’d be in the dropped box.

Still, there’s only so much a killer bishie can do for what amounts to the cheapest rip-off of the Fate/series since… well, fuck, I can’t think of anything. Even the worst series on the planet have had the good sense not to lower themselves to Type-Moon’s level. Will drop when he dies.

 

 

Concrete Revolutio

Concrete Revolting

The timeskipping in Revolutio isn’t complicated; it’s just hard to care about. I also hate all the characters.

Revolutio's toast game is strong, though.

Young Black Jack

Fuck You and Fuck Raymond

Stupidity, rather than formulaity, is the primary issue with Black Jack. I’m fine with suspending disbelief in an anime, but you can’t expect any cognizant viewer to accept that a simple face-lift will allow an uneducated 20-year-old to successfully masquerade as the influential, 60-year-old leader of a mega-cult for the rest of their life. Come on now.

 

 

Meh/10

Spoiler:

Owari no Seraph S2

Don't do it - please end the anime here

I thought the bullshit setup arcs were over, but apparently that shit was just beginning. God, what a waste of cute characters.

 

 

Heavy Object

Nada

I like that it’s not Gundam, but it really should be Gundam. Normal war is boring.

 

 

Noragami Aragoto

Tree

Noragami sure knows how to drag a plot to its breaking point (and then some). The only reason I haven’t dropped this shit is that it’s so generic, it’d feel like I’m dropping every anime ever (and I’ve invested a bit too much of my life into this sinkhole to go back now).

Japan can be quite crafty when it wants to be.

 

 

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk

Wretched Wretches

The show may be objectively bad, Julis’s hair is pretty solid fap material, so…

 

 

K – Return of Kings

No.
No.

Ugh, this show is so close to being good, but it actively avoids plot progression to the point that it’s like watching Bleach fillers. And when a show makes me remember the Bount arc, it’s not exactly a positive sign.

 

 

Osomatsu-san

HashtagFlirting

Forget my earlier Osomatsu-san commentary. I like this series enough that even though it renders my dick as useless as social media, I’m gonna have to keep watching it. Damn my impeccable taste.

Here’s the scene I grabbed the screen from (2 mins, 7 MB):

If it wasn’t worth watching, I wouldn’t have included it.

 

 

Top 5 6 Whatever

Spoiler:

Comet Lucifer

And the award for best couple goes to

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.

 

 

One-Punch Man

stop talking plz

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 characters like this, I can't say I dislike it.
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

i cry everytim

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

Actually she can just

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.

MFW
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

Yes - Yes it could

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

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.
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

Dont hate the player hate the game

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~

2pure

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.

You already inferred the other reason.
The other half.

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.

  1. >Could someone tell me what exactly it is that people don’t get about the show?

    Those faces, Sage, those faces.

    Also, is this gonna be an elimination type thing? Cos that’d be cool.

    • …Shit, setting this up like a tourney would have been a really good idea.

      Nah, just planned to drop shows as arbitrarily as I normally do. Maybe next season. :c

      • Not sure, but the manga is amazing. Just wanted to know if the anime is skipping/adding anything, cuz I’m not watching anything but gintama this season due to some annoying exams.

        • Seems pretty faithful so far. It’s a bit janky due to some of the stuff not translating as well to the animated format, but they make up for it with some sick animated fight sequences.
