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.

Chihayafuru : 13

KYAAAAAAAAA~~!!! Finally got to watch episode 13 ! So the competition started for chihaya and gang. And with the series half way through, i’m wondering how will the ending be like ? I shouldn’t have marathon 12 episodes the other time. >..< . But I’m looking forward to the relationship triangle between arata, chihaya and whats-his-name-again? develops further. I hope the focus will shift into the people rather than the card game. XD

My chihaya shrine… sort of.

Happy 2012 everyone!~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chihayafuru : 1 – 12

Chihayafuru… I LOVE THIS ANIME. I love it that it is a shoujo and it has shounen elements in it. Did i mention I love Shoujo?

This anime feels like a condense version of the things i love in other shoujo anime. First off you have a beautiful lead character, Chihaya. Then you give her flaws yet at the same time, this flaws suit her so much it becomes her charms. Next, you mix in 2 guys who are equally strong in character and to top if off, Childhood friends.

I would be bluffing if i said i dont like the childhood friends idea but i think maybe it is used too often?. But i guess for an anime like this, you need some background history and since the characters are like 16 years old, childhood is the only history you can make up. Unless Chihaya is like 30 or something then you could use high school as a background.

well like i tweeted out earlier ,

Despite being a shoujo anime, the card game scenes are intense as hell. It really puts anime like Yugioh into shame. If you compare the card battles, the pure shounen Yugioh isn’t really as exciting as Chihayafuru. Don’t get me wrong, i like yugioh but come on, this shoujo is more exciting and intense than a shounen? Granted there’s no Dark magician or blue eyes white dragon animation but goddamnit, SHOUJO CARD FIGHTS ARE AWESOME. Also it helps to have someone as kawaii as chihaya-chan ❤ ! I love you Chihaya~~~ I am officially fan-boying over you~~~~~~ !!!!!!!

AHHHH i wouldn’t mind buying a Chihaya 2012 calender if it exists.

I like how the storyline builds up from episode 1 to episode 12. There isn’t an episode where i find it boring. Of course crossing my fingers and i hope the next 13 episodes wouldn’t be boring at all as well.

Having said that, i can’t wait for more Chihayafuru. Did i mention this is the best shoujo of 2011? If i haven’t, I AM DOING IT NOW.

I need to make a chihaya-chan only post as well. So many wonderful screen caps of her ^^.
