Spring 2014 Watch List: Week 2

2nd episodes! I am expecting follow up character introductions, follow up setting/story descriptions and the ever so popular, the beginning of character-relationship developments and most importantly 2nd episodes are where the opening and ending themes are shown. I’m also setting the bar lower than the first since 1st impressions are the only expected surprises in any series so from now it all comes down to “how many times I expressed emotion as i was watching an episode”.

spring2014

Anime list for spring 2014 came of as a bit weak but that doesn’t mean i didn’t like any of them, I have chosen 10 newly released Anime from a whole lot. Unfortunately I’m not an Otaku of all trades, I go for specific genres. As you will determine from the list I’ve prepared below.

Escha & Logy no Atelier: Tasogare no Sora no Renkinjutsushi


Genres: Fantasy
Ranking: 10th
Comment:
 Filled with awkward everythings… well mostly by Escha. It feels like i’m watching a children’s episode. the whole thing looks like an RPG but the reactions are just… ugh awkward. So down it goes to the 10th spot. I sure hope they fare better next episode, maybe add in a bit mystery and action and less… escha.

Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou


Genres: Romance, Slice of Life, Comedy
Ranking: 3rd
Comment: The entire thing… was beautiful. the artwork was like an anime movie type. We get to see a whole new side of each character and also a new one as expected. But damn Hase keeps failing. I have a feeling that things get serious in the coming episodes.

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?


Genres: Comedy, Slice of Life
Ranking: 7th
Comment: I like this kind of anime so soft and carefree and the 23 minutes doesn’t feel too short unlike any other anime. Which means, its not interesting enough. Yes the whole thing is cute and funny enough to make people smirk and chuckle a little but you know…

Hitsugi no Chaika


Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance Shounen
Ranking: 5th
Comment: I rather enjoyed this episode, full of action and now i understand their purpose and i can’t help it chaika is just too damn kawaii. Too bad most of the episode happened at night, the anime’s color pallet is quite nice they should make use of that some more.

Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san


Genres: Comedy, Shoujo-Ai
Ranking: 9th
Comment: Not as funny as the first episode. Most on the parts here thats supposed to make me laugh, didn’t make me laugh. Also conflict alert, new character, someone’s jealous hmmm she could be a mouse? since she likes cheese and all.

Isshuukan Friends


Genres: Comedy, Shounen, Slice of Life
Ranking: 1st
Comment: Them feels, i love it! i feel like i shed tears of joy deep inside. I’m glad that nothing stood in their way in this episode but i feel there will be in the next and based on the preview at the end I’m guessing that Shogo, Hase’s seatmate had the same experience with fujimiya but he gave up. Hmmm if that really does happen then i just dump a huge spoiler on myself.

Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara


Genres: Comedy, Romance, Harem
Ranking: 4th
Comment: New girls for Sou-kun’s harem! though that’s most of the point of the episode it also brings to light backstories and where sou got his flag senses from. Also a bit dark? since there was a death flag on top of the case where it contains a letter, a letter which I have no idea what it means but i do know it refers to the game sou was playing with a girl. THAT OPENING THEME THOUGH! kawaii as fck! 😀

Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to


Genres: Comedy, Harem, Slice of Life, Seinen
Ranking: 6th
Comment: New character, but the episode doesn’t center around her. We also get to see a bit of history. The jokes still aren’t jokes but what makes it funny still is how weird the protagonist is about ecchi stuff.

Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii


Genres: Shoujo, Romance, Adventure, Fantasy
Ranking: 2nd
Comment: Okay its done, i am now immersed in the world of Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii. Its every typical royal romance type where the couple are always opposite of each other in this case one strives to make the other understand. Truth be told when she started to sing it gave me goosebumps, not because i think the song is good but rather the requirements to make it rain, she did manage to find it in the short time she was there by making the king understand and having understood the king as well.

Soul Eater Not!


Genres: Action, Supernatural, Comedy, Shounen
Ranking: 8th
Comment: I was expecting a bit more uhm Soul Eater stuff, again i am reminded of the fact that this isn’t the old Soul Eater. More character introductions and story description as expected.
