Winter 2014: Ultra Super 2-week late edition

Post  Chumara on Wed Jan 15, 2014 10:38 am

Anime is hard to watch for free/cheap in Japan, anyways this season doesn't look too pressing, but it's ok since there are quite a few continuing shows from last season.

Sequels:
Seitokai Yakiundomo *: I don't think I could ever get tired of this show, but at the same time it's not something I actively look forward to.

Saki - Zenkoku hen: I've been waiting a VERY LONG TIME for this, I was living with Nick when I was blessed with the first season, FINALLY GETTING SOME FUCKING CLOSURE. Achiga-hen was really good too so I can't complain about not having any this whole time, but I miss the Saki crew.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren: So that new character doesn't exist in the novels right? Either way, I really liked the first season, but I really don't see where a second season could be going, time to find out.

New Stuff:
Future Card Buddy Fight LOL WHY BUSHIROAD, WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN?!?!?!

Saikin, Imouto no Youso ga Chotto Okashiin da: I wasn't actually going to watch this show but I'm hearing some interesting things about it, I'll give it a try for the time being.

Space Dandy: I don't actually want to watch this show, but I'm doing it anyways for various reasons.

Super Sonico The Animation: Music show with a vocaloid-ish (but not really) idol, I actually can't find a reason to NOT watch this show.

To Aru Hikuushi e no Koiuta: This is one of the top ones I'm looking forward to this season, I loved the movie as it was probably one of my top 10 anime movies I've ever seen and I'm hoping this "prequel" follows in quality.

D-Frag: Seems Slice of Lifey which I enjoy, Brains Base hasn't been very strong since my favorite show of theirs Kurenai back in the olden times, let's hope this is entertaining enough to not get dropped.

Onee-chan ga Kita: I was just passing over this without a care until I read the words "big-breasted foreign friend". Captain, my Engrish senses are tingling, let's hope it can carry an otherwise horrible sounding plot.

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei: I'm really fishing here, just another one I'm going to check out for the possible drop list.

Strange+: Ray made me watch the first episode, it was alright and only 3 minutes, so why not.

Go! Go! 575: Music and girls!

Mahou Sensou: Not only was this show advertised to all living hell along with Nobunaga the Fool in Japan, but the premise sounds pretty good and it's Madhouse so it's probably not going to look half bad.

Sakura Trick: "In order to cement their special bond, they want to do something that can only be between them. They decide on a kiss. They both enjoy it, and the kisses continue." Sold

Pupa: 5 minutes long, and we've been waiting long enough. I just hope for maximum gore for sheer posterity's sake.

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha: I don't want to watch this show, and I probably won't, but I'm curious because it's set at the Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto which I did visit and I thought it was the most beautiful and interesting shrine I saw while I was there. I also did the 3 hour hike up the mountain, so I might check out an ep or two for the reference but drop it unless it ends up being amazing or something.

No-Rin: Honestly I'm only watching this because of Silver Link + Shin Oonuma, this combo hasn't let me down yet and I'm hoping it doesn't start now even though this show sounds dumb.

Nisekoi: Continuing with the studio/director trend, we have SHAFT + Shinbou combo now, this show actually sounds like it's up my alley though so I've got high hopes for it, and also the manga is something I've been hearing about for awhile now, plus I can't get enough Claris in my life.

Wake Up, Girls!: Rounding off my last car of the combo train we have Ordet + Yamamoto, I'll follow this guy to the end of his anime career, which should have happened but I guess he just can't give up. Also this show was hugely advertised in Japan, hell there were fucking trucks with banners for this show rolling around Akiba shouting advertisements out of loudspeakers. Love Live came into the scene with a heavy and pretty damn successful competition to Idolmaster and I feel like we might have another contender here. I'm really looking forward to this show, probably the second most after Saki. I was in Japan when the movie for this came out but I didn't get the chance to see it.

--------------------------------------
I always say I'm going to be stricter and stricter on my show-dropping every season, but I'm hoping to stand by it a bit more this time. I did drop 3 shows last season that I wasn't enjoying fully but I still did end up watching shows that I didn't really have a lot of interest in, of course most (or all) of those were sequels so I was going to do it anyways, luckily though Little Busters should be done forever now.

Wait what, don't have like TVs over there?

AOTS:
Nisekoi: Everything about this show works! Also those faces.

Keepers:
D-Frag: ShizuItou doctrine in full swing. Also, it's pretty enjoyable.

Pupa: Eh, it's 5 4 minutes. Surely Deen can't mess that up right? Right?

Nobunaga the Fool: I dunno, this show just hits me the right way.

Maybe:
Mahou Sensou: The fact that things move around in a Madhouse show is kinda shocking. The premise is alright, but the execution was pretty bad, we'll see where this goes.

No-Rin: Did not hold my attention, but I'm willing to give it a chance. Probably drop.

3 carryovers, 3 shows, 1 something, and 2 possibilities. It's not a bad schedule.

I'm passing on wake up girls, heard it's pretty void, as for Sonico, man I remember when Nitro+ used to make.... things.

I'll keep going, but I don't think laughter was the intended result.

So..... Saikin Yousu was unwatchable..... I may or may not try again with BDs. Dropped.

Strange+, Onee-chan ga Kita and GoGo575 all ended up being shorts, what is happening to anime these days, with only 3 minute long eps I don't really have a reason to drop them, and they're not half bad.

Cost cuts. First they chopped anime from 48 to 24, then to 12.

Next will come the CG wave, where everything is CG, except dragons (the novelty will have worn off so they'll actually draw those).

Then the rotoscope wave.

Then they'll replace all the VAs with vocaloids.

Then they'll just make it all live action, but still with the vocaloids. Dragons may or may not be CG.

So Inari, Konkon, KoiIroha was actually one of the best things I've seen this season, and Toaru Hikuushi is done by fucking TMS Production which is basically a kids show production house.... bleh.

I was actually looking through all of this season's shows to see if she had any major roles, I didn't notice any unfortunately. But I guess she had a character in episode 5 of witch craft.
Will that character recur? Or was it a one-time deal?

I'm guessing recurring, but probably when they need weird hax moments. I don't see her being a regular.

I feel like I'm watching a shitty eroge adaptation with cliche elements when I watch Mahou Sensou.

I don't think anyone cares about this show, even the staff and cast (except Toyama). It feels like everyone is just going through the motions until Madhouse can work on the better show.

Man I bet Mahou Sensou would be cooler if they used MORE arbitrary words for stuff and then described them directly afterwards. No I seriously hate two things in anime the most 1. When characters are introduced via other characters in very un-realistic ways that nobody would EVER say, and 2. what this show did during the beginning of the fight between chibi-ko and greyhairedman when he explains his shit to someone who obviously knows what's up already just for the sake of the audience. Lazy writing.

Also, it's hard to take the "factions" seriously when the member's loyalties are based on who brainwashed them last, again, just seems like lazy writing.

I don't think I was watching properly. Did they actually exchange hostages, or did the good guys essentially just give away two perfectly good people for nothing?

They gave away two perfectly good hostages (essentially allies [thanks brainwashing]) for the chance of acquiring one of their own back. Ya know........ strategy.

Lol, yeah.
It's actually impressive how lazy the writing staff thinks they can get away with being. This episode had me facepalming the whole time.
Also I'm so done with personified weapons, seeing it in Bleach back in highschool was enough.

Oh yes..... the brainwashing on the MC has come! MORE BRAINWASHING, ALL THE BRAINWASHING!
Also how did Ida explode his house like that and only singe her hair a bit, I don't think we're getting the full story here. Then again.... lazy writing is abundant in this show.

Pupa has like one of the weirdest censorship I've ever seen. They censor a knife and then don't. And then they censor a guy getting tazed. It's like they have to fulfill some kind of censorship quota each episode.

This was... boring. Honestly, there didn't feel like much going on.

Also, I was kinda expecting the octopus to attack the childhood friend, what with that dream and all.
