Shougeki Gouraigan , a new toku for adults., as if that’s the show tagline 😛 but seriously, this toku is meant for older toku fans that are not under 15 years old. If you watched Garo before, you will recognize the art style or at least to me, it feels like it has been done with the same people/company. I’m sure if i dig around the web i can find more information. But fuck it, can’t be fucked at this point 😛 //
O fuck you, actually i did some searching! (have journalistic integrity!!) So yup Mr Keita Amemiya did Garo before.
If you are looking for detailed impressions I would suggest you go here instead : http://theglorioblog.com/2013/10/14/first-impressions-shougeki-gouraigan/
Anyway, as much as Garo was a love and hate affair for me. I thought gouraigan would be better. Turns out, the acting is fucking horrible and they appear to re-voice the actors for some reason. Don’t get me, being a toku fan for at least 16 years (or more), i am used to the fucking horrible acting in toku shows. I do not recommend non mainstream toku shows to non toku fans, hell even toku fans would find alternative toku shows like this one in particular difficult to watch.
i did mention this was an adult toku (despite having worse acting than kids toku show), because there’s boobs. Literally boobs in the first few seconds into the opening of the show and every single fucking time they fight. The buddha looking character? Yup, Boobs.
As much as i like to think this isn’t really a sentai look alike, it is. I am only 3 episodes in, hell, in the first episodes i already knew. So main character needs to find and get 4 other dudes to join his team and protect earth. Isn’t the fucking sentai or what? Don’t get me wrong, i am going to watch this show even though i do not sound too sold on this. Being a toku veteran, i would want to consume as much as i can regarding toku. Even a show with fuck stupid acting like this. I really hope the acting gets better. Seriously, if i was a director/ an actor and i have shows like this in my portfolio, i would be ashame. Maybe thats the reason for boobs appearing in this show.

Jyuden sentai is surprisingly good! loving every moment of it. This is probably the most ambitious sentai i’ve watched till date and they actually pulled the story off really well. There are some episodes that are really stupid and cringe-at-every-moments but all in all, love it.
To spoil a bit, there are about 10 sentais and 10 fucking zords as well. Till now (34 episodes in), they managed to find everything so the next dozen or so episode will be fucking amazing where they have so many powers to utilize.
on a side note, have to talk about Kamen rider Gaim and Shougeki Gouraigan at some point too!. will leave that to some other post some other time. I’m actually doing some pre-exams procrastination >..<

I’m glad that i’ve followed through Railgun S and Shingeki because they have been wonderfully enjoyable. Personally I’m not a big fan of Index franchise but seriously Railgun is the only index i can watch. There is something about Mikasa that attracts me into that show and Railgun actually has watchable plots and character design. I know i sound harsh but thats the reality of Index franchise for me. Sorry why am i even ranting?
Shingeki no Kyojin was really a surprise for me actually. I was just browsing through my wordpress feeds casually and the freaking titan screenshot….. I was like, WOAH THAT LOOKS FUCKING AMAZING!! . and after that, been watching it since. I mean I’m so impressed with the show i even started blogging about it! although i did gave up to laziness afterwards.. but hey! that’s an achievement for me ! Can’t wait for season 2.. However (not spoilers!) , the manga is progressing really slow so I’m not sure if they will follow the manga storyline. I just hope this wouldn’t end up like claymore (both anime and manga suffered a lot at the end). Speaking of claymore, maybe i should do a rant about it sometime soon? ….
Well if you have yet to catch Railgun S and Shingeki , i would highly recommend you to do so. They kept me sane and relatively happy for 25 weeks, I’m sure they will do the same to you (assuming you are not marathoning em!).

Kill la killKill
Truth be told, i have no idea on what to watch this season, i’ve been watching Railgun S and Attack of Titans last 25 weeks (I should have been blogging about them as well but i didn’t… laziness). I really should get back into blogging (that’s what i tell myself everytime) but this time i am going to do so. you see, IRL is a disappointing reality and so in order to escape IRL , i will now devote time to blogging. so fuck you for judging.
Anyway, Love love love the style of Kill la kill because it reminds me so much of TTGL!! and also, uniforms giving you superhuman strength? This anime is gonna be gloriously pointless in plot! Been waiting for this kind of anime for awhile actually, can’t wait to see how this will turn out over the weeks!
I recommend you watch this.

So i rewatched DieBuster for the X-th time (yet again)., i must say for a 2005 anime, this is kinda holding up to one of the classics in my books. Let’s face it, I am a Gainax fanboy but I only fanboy for Gunbuster, Diebuster, FLCL, Eva & TTGL. I know, super robots? Hey, i don’t judge you for loving all those kawaii moe moe shit that’s chipping away sanity from anime these days. ( i confess i use to be one of those that love kawaii moe moe shit, but i’ve changed and gone back to my roots, toku and super robots)
Anyhow, I think i will try to publish more rewatch marathon of choice anime and freaking compile a top X list of animes that i like. Been meaning to do that for a long long time!!!
PS : If you have not watched Diebuster before, I highly recommend watching GunBuster first. MARATHON GUNBUSTER AND DIEBUSTER ! seriously, watch gunbuster on saturday then diebuster on sunday , you will thank me for it.
PPS : suppose to go for a tutorial earlier but last night alcohol kind of made me really sleepy.
PPPS : I have recorded a new series of podcast with my IRL brother! which will be uploaded soon and probably will link up the site here soon. soooooon.
