Fall 2010 Anime chartfag

Fall 2010 Anime chartfag - warning! 1.4 MB

 

Autumn has fall~ and my college task also piles up like crazy. Despite that and la Nina that haunt the southeast Asia, somehow I still want to post some (or else I’ll become total wacky I think).

This season is quite special, in the beginning there’s at least 13 show that looks interesting. Buts most of all is To Aru Majutsu no Index II, can’t wait to see the most unlucky guy kick buts of the bad guys~ XD. Other that that there’s a bunch of sequels of previously famous series such as: Sora no Otoshimono – Forte, Arakawa Under the Bridge X Bridge, Motto~ To Love Ru and Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector. (not forgetting other series, that I’m currently not quite interested, such as: Hetalia Axis Power, Hakuoki Shinsengumi Kittan, Letter Bee REVERSE, Pokemon, Fortune Arterial: Red Promise, etc.)

Anyway the shows has started last week~ so in addition this time I’ll add some short first glance review on the first episodes of the shows that I manage to get. The rating is subjective to my taste, so bear with it~

edit: added Yosuga no Sora, Motto To Love Ru review. WHERE”S MY INDEX (T__T)?!?

Tamayura OVA
My Rating: 9/10

Eh, I just realize it is not listed on the chartfag, anyway this is another light Moe series and not much exaggeration on the comedy. The story is about Potte (forgot her real name), a shy girl who loves photography, with her Rollei 35S she captures her daily activities (and also Momoneko-sama the fat cat 😄 kawaii~). And sometimes her photos capture tamayura (orb of light that often accidentally captured in photos because of reflection of light in the air) thus the title named. I just simply loves this its enjoyable, like Aria series, and her photos are just sooo innocent.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
My Rating: 7.5/10

Well the title doesn’t 100% reflect the content. Anyway the story is about two beautiful angels(?) who got kick out to Daten City because of bad behavior, their name is Panty and Stocking (I know, its… ewww). Now, with a priest called Garterbelt, both of them must exorcist evil spirit to gather heavens coin so they can return home. Panty, who love sex (yes SEX), can turn her panties into holy gun while Stocking, who love sweets (to the extreme) can turn her stockings into Japanese swords.

Just by looking at it you can see the art is more like some american cartoons (more specifically: The fairy odd parents-Danny Phantom style although most people seems to compare them with powerpuff girls) even with how the storytelling and how they split the scene and stuff. Which is not really that bad, I kinda like it. But unlike those cartoons, this one is got more action. There’s also a transformation scene which is pretty HOT.

MM!
My Rating: 7/10

MM is an anime about a M guy (yes that M… Masochist) named Sado Tarou (even his name reflected M-ness XD) who try to cure his M-ness by asking help to the second volunteering club in his highschool. But instead he got abused and enslaved (happily) by the girls of the club. This is another comedy-fan service-ecchi show, just like Lady VS Butler stuff (too much resemblance in especially in art).

I’m not sure how to review this, with a bunch of scene where he gets whipped by the girls (especially Mio) with maid, school uniform. although there’s a bit story here and there, but the main storyline still lack of impact. So just sit back and enjoy as cutie Mio spanking Taro while he’s whimpering with pleasure XD.

Star Driver: Shining Takuto
My Rating: 6/10

One word: GAY

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge
My Rating: 9/10

Still the same, still interesting

Super Robot Wars Original Generation – The Inspector
My Rating: 8/10

Finally this time Team ATX got the highlight~ Well if you loves mecha stuff you gotta love this series. Just like the last SRW OG series, this one also packed with epic mecha war. ‘Nough said.

The World God Only Knows
My Rating: 8.5/10

From one of my favorite manga, and especially for all galge (gal game)/dating sims lover, comes the tale of Keima Katsuragi, the self proclaiming “God of Capturing (game) Girls”. One day he accidentally signed up a contract with the new generation hell keeper Elsee. In order to capture  evil spirits that hide in the gap of girls heart, he forced into capturing real girls heart and filling them with love. Keima is practically a genius (or more accurately have a very high IQ), but he despise real girls. So he refer to all kind of galge strategy to capture their hearts.

The anime itself is better than I expected, the art especially, but it’s still too soon to say about the story progress. Especially with the manga still looks like still running for long term, I hope they won’t hang the story awfully.

My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute
(aka “Oreimo” or “Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai”)
My Rating: 8/10

When I was reading the few first chapter of the short novel, it is pretty much interesting. Though you can pretty much guess the theme is about moe stuff with his (the protagonist) sister. I think the pace of the anime is pretty good to follow the novel plot, and the art is good (read: moe). And her galge collection is quite impressive 😄

Well here’s the plot from ANN: For several years, Kyousuke’s relationship with his younger sister Kirino has been cold, to the point that they only share greetings. But one day, Kyousuke finds a moe anime DVD fallen in their entry hall. His interest piqued, he looks for the owner, only to realize it belongs to Kirino. He’s shocked, but more surprises lie just ahead…

Shinryaku! Ika Musume
(Invade! Squid Girl)
My Rating: 7/10

There’s nothing like cute little environmental lover squid girl who wants to invade the land~ Despite the moe art and stuff the comedy feels awkward for some reason and lack intensity or impact~

Sora no Otoshimono ~Forte~
My Rating: 8/10

The continuation of the flying panties anime~ 😄 very hilarious and very ecchi

Bakuman
My Rating: 7/10

I think the anime is pretty decent… but I prefer the manga afterall~

IRONMAN
My Rating: 8/10

Tony Stark suddenly want to invade Japan~ The CG is nice, and they try to maintain western style while combining with anime but, some character become err… eyesore (at least for me). As for the story, they still maintain Tony Stark personality, which is good, but he really have to learn eastern humbleness indeed 😄

Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls
My Rating: 8.5/10

First thing that I notice is the art style, its quite eye-catching especially the nuance of classic ink combine with the usual battle anime style. Still to early to judge the story but so far its interesting.

Yosuga no Sora: in solitude, where we are least alone
My Rating: 7.5/10

If Aki Sora is not enough you can try Yosuga no Sora… another Incestuous series (What the hell U Japonese? can’t get enough with sibling-in-law and now shifting sibling-in-blood?!?). Haru and Sora parents passed away because of accidents, now both of them return to village where their grandparents where they spent their childhood before. And Haru start encounter with all his childhood friends (read: HAREM) all over again.

Honestly incest series just send chill through my spine, but Sora is just… so… damn… CUTEEEEE~ with tsundere attitude and other character also pretty nice. The UTW-Ryuumaru came uncensored too, thus you can drool at Nao’s rack (and that maid too) and there’s very short scene of their self servicing their lust too~ 😄

 

Can't... resist... her... Kawaiii~ *glomp*

 

Motto To Love Ru
My Rating: 7/10

To Love Ru is rather dilemmatic, though the plot doesn’t develop anymore but I have to admit this series have one of the most delicious fan service 😄 Looks like the second seasons also only cover short stories of Rito’s harem LOL.


Upcoming:

To Aru Majutsu no Index II
