My winter anime watch list

Kinda late into this but i guess Late is better than none. So the first few episodes of winter is out. And after watching them, I can safely say this are the ones that i will be watching.

  • Aquarion Evol
  • Prince of Tennis II
  • Thermea Romae

And also

  • Toriko
  • Chihayafuru

Well to begin off, let’s talk about those animes. Firstly, Aquarion Evol…

The main drive watching Evol was purely nostalgic reasons. I loved the first aquarion and normally anime is kinda awkward by nature to watch it with loud volume because of the way they moan. Which to the untrained ears will sound like porn. Aquarion takes awkwardness up to a whole new level ! Which them having orgasms during fusion. The begining of Evol brought back the super awkward feeling when the main character.. can’t remember his name, he looks like Apollo from the previous series. Anyway he has the flying and other unknown powers in his list of weapons. But i got a feeling the other crew will mature their powers further throughout the series, dwarfing the main character powers for a while.

Of course like the previous series, the main character will save the day in the end. I mean come on, are you expecting something else different ? Although! It will be awesome if the enemy they are fighting turns out to the saviour instead!

Prince of tennis II or New prince of tennis, whichever way you want to call it. I personally did not watched the previous prince of tennis. I watched the first arc and got bored of it. Tennis isn’t really that exciting, at least not for me anyway. The only reason I am watching this season is because of the background. Basically Japan is trying to make a super elite tennis player or something, they rounded up all the characters in the previous and threw them into a mix of high schoolers. So you have the middle school boys that you all know plus some random high schoolers. AND THEY ARE ALL ELITES. WOOHOO!

They are still trying to narrow down the players in the team but it will all be elites fighting! So i reckon this season of prince of tennis will be more exciting than anything. But of course if you are talking about Sports anime in general, NOTHING and i stressed, Nothing beats Slam Dunk. Anyway, next up Thermea Romae or rather shameless plugs for the upcoming movie of the same title.

I love the flash animation!! It gives the studio more time to actually think of dialogue instead ! I mean come on, if you are doing an anime about on-sen AND roman bath houses, the puns and jokes are limitless! I think. But sadly the anime has ended. But still!! I enjoyed it very much.

Of course there’s the still on going Chihayafuru and Toriko. I really should get back and start blogging about toriko again. I mean, this anime really need to have more love given to it!! Also this is like the only food-related anime as well. 😦 there aren’t many food related anime that not only entertains but the food ideas sounds fucking awesome. Even if it doesn’t exists. Thats it. I have to start blogging more often again. I was sort of on the ball for a while then Fallout 3 just took over my life. And also general procrastinating as always. Until then, have a good time.

勇者聖戦バーンガーン

Rewatching Gundam Wing , The first gundam series that i was exposed to as a kid

Right now I’m rewatching Gundan Wing. I’ve watched it on tv back when i was a kid many many years back, this was the first gundam that I’ve watch from episode to the end and even borrowed the VHS to watch Endless Waltz. I fell in love with Gundam then and till today I still love this franchise. But personally I prefer the UC more than anything else. I’m not interested AT ALL in Gundam OO nor ACE. But yeah, I guess i will talk more about Wing from time to time as i watch this awesome series.

Shiki

Shiki is an anime that probably didn’t received as much love as it should get. Doing a simple search in my Greader, not many bloggers talked about it when it aired, in fact there’s only a handful that followed the show throughout the season which was surprising. You would have thought if Shiki gets the seal of approval by some bloggers, more will join in the fun and watch it. For me, I have not really been catching up with anime for a few years now, the last time i seriously followed an anime was Gurren Lagann and even that was like 2007!.

At least this year, I’m getting back the groove of watching anime regularly again.

Anyway more about shiki,  there are flashbacks happening along with the current timeline and is not those lame fuck Naruto or bleach flashbacks. Those flashbacks are important as it will show you how the current situation become what it is now. So in a way is story telling in reverse and in order at the same time, If that makes sense at all? Of course I know myself, I’m not particularly good in writing reviews so I’m not gonna write anyway. You can always check out other wonderful blogger’s review[1].

What I want you to do is, GO watch Shiki. Seriously, because not many people talked about it, thats why you should watch it. There’s a reason why Shiki is in Caraniel’s Top 50 anime list, in fact it was #2. If you’re still not convinced, go check out what Flomu wrote about Shiki. And i quote Flomu saying,

Shiki is last on this list because it was also the best show of the year

– Flomu

Shiki is an awesome anime, story & character wise. I wouldn’t say the OP is to my taste, I reckon it takes time to grow into you. Unlike High school of the dead OP, which was really good but the show wasn’t :P.

ps : I wonder will i ever make a top 50 anime list ?…
