Not an otaku, but just lingering passions

Spring 2011 – first look without watching

Firstly, let me thank all of those that made my post happen, Thank you. Secondly I am a lazy person, I must admit. Seriously speaking, reading blog post on anime prior to watching is easier on the bandwidth and also time. Everyone has the same 24hours, how would you use it is up to you. Instead of I watch so you don’t need to watch, this is i read so you don’t need to read but after reading you have a easier idea to decide if you should watch it or not.

Yes, i may quote out of context, i may quote just for the juicy bits but does it matter ? Don’t worry about me leaching off your screenshot. I’m not. There’s no image here. If you are looking for image, this is not your site.

Anyway today, we look at 4 anime that are currently airing.

Ao No Exorcist

doesn’t have a harem nor the raging hormones for any pair of breasts on legs, but is a misfit kid grown up in a church environment with a subsequently strong moral code – KIIRAGI of randomc.net

There are some “chibi” moments which brings out the light heartedness to balance out the story. The animation is top notch too!!! Definitely following this!! – Nakayo of Yasashii Sekai

Hmm from the looks of it, Harem lovers need not apply. You can’t see any thing from the damn trailer but the screenshot over at randomc.net looks yummy. Would this anime be a watch for me? I think so. I probably might. I still have Madoka backlog though. Ahh… I still have highschool of the dead and Kore wa zombie desu ka to watch too… Batching this instead.


if you could sit through any season of Index, this is a piece of cake. – KIIRAGI of randomc.net

Steins;Gate seems to be a really clever anime, one I can’t just let me slip me by just because it’s a bit fragmented. – Hime of Metanorm.net

Even after reading, i don’t really know what is going on. But the screenshots do look yummy. Yes will watch. Speaking of which, i should start on Index as well. I really like Railgun’s OP and DDR X2 has that song too which was really nice to play but my personal favorite is Super Driver.

Deadman Wonderland

we get this adorable cheerful piece of moe, shiro. who turns out to be nothing like how I thought she’ll be. – Cidz of Chocolate Syrupy Waffles

So far though, it’s fast-paced, hard-hitting, unnerving, and completely engrossing; I have high hopes. – PROOOF of randomc.net

I’m not sure about you but personally the manga is kinda good. Would i have high expectations for this? Yes. Would i watch it? Maybe. I think i would watch this by batch instead of weekly.

C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control

It’s bizarre and ima­gin­at­ive, with intel­li­gent dia­logue and quick wit with some incred­ibly inter­est­ing ideas that I really want to see it explore fur­ther. – Scamp of The Cart Driver

I didn’t really know what exactly I was getting into before this episode, since the subject matter was unusual, but the potential is exciting. PROOOF of randomc.net

On first looks of the screenshot, i thought i saw Charlie and Chocolate Factory : Sex and demon edition. The top hat purple hair dude looks like willy wonka, seriously!. Oh from the looks of the screenshot, THEY CAN TRANSFORM USING A CREDIT CARD. Also this feels like a Jigoku Shoujo as well. I would watch because this show feels so familiar yet so different.

Of course there’s more than 4 anime, i only chose to do 4 because is so much easier than doing ALL of it. So would i do more similar post like this ? I’m not sure. But i’ll see how things go. The idea of Posting once a day is easy to do. But really posting once a day is hard. I guess it’ll be good if i have more writers to join me. I mean after all i paid for the domain and host, I should put this site into good use damnit!. Anyone wants to guest write or simply join team otakurean ? Let me know via Contact or @otakurean over at twitter.

Here’s a bonus :

IF Spring 2011 looks like it ain’t your cup of tea, hop over the thecartdriver.com time machine and back into the swinging 80’s of  Summer1988 !
