Spring anime not review

Sun May 11, 2014, 3:57 PM
Decided to not call it a review, because im not an anime expert, but i just try to exclude animes that ive had seen over and over with same topics, if the anime  has a boring topic of school saving the world, annoying cute moe sounds, too much lolicon, incest and stuff like that i just skip them, also too much yaoi looking characters.


There were tons of animes like that, to make an example i like Soul eater and i despise Soul eater not, because they stripped the elements i like about anime, i like them when they have a unique style, and doesnt look like  same characters with different color wig. animes with no cool males like Blade soul we also ditched out.

Like i said, these are just my personal favorites, but im general the quality of new anime improved a lot, i must say animation music and production its solid compared to a couple of years, its just my personal taste.

Surprisely, sports animes ranked all  the rest, never seen a solid line up of sport animes in years.
So here we go.


Haikyuu!! ( the king of this season)

i had this anime in second place on my list, but episode 6 made me fall to the floor and laugh, joke after joke after joke after joke, man its been years since i laughed this hard, the first 5 episodes feels like an intro. This anime has it all, cool anime male characters that doesnt look yaoi and are manly enough, each character looks unique, different bone structure, type of eyes, those are refreshing i missed watching males with male eyes. The style its so refreshing, animation its solid, the script its brilliant, the dialogues are well made like -baccano. I was worried that this anime will only focus on two characters then the rest  just to fill in. Each character has their own weight, you will see how eachoneits cool in episode 6. There were a couple of times it made  cry with manly tears, because its so emotive, brilliant music that fits the mood. This is the anime girls should watch too, instead of swimmers(anime really for girls). Ohhh  forgot to tell you, this is an anime about a sport named volleyball. Only one girl on this anime, and she looks super hot.



Ping pong the animation

This was my ranked one,  the script its brilliant, the perspective shots they use its brilliant, characters are likable as hell. The animation its fresh. If you liked Tekkon krinket  this is the anime you will be waiting for. This is the anime that keeps me, exfited to watch each week.


Bokura Wa Minna Kawaisou

Same good old anime plot, boy living in an exchange house with males and females, but the plot  or characters something got me hook out. The plot its brilliant, really really funny and emotive, they use anime clitches in a new way, Really funny and emotive. Its probably the best love comedy i had seen in years, it always keep me with a smile, i can compare this to Honey and clover in an emotive way or Azumanga daioh in funny moments, probably the most coolest combination, this one ranked number 3 in my interested, each episode its even better. Highly recomend you this one.



Mushishi second season

This anime doesnt needs a description, its mushishi, the king of new folklore.




Baby steps

A tennis anime, the plot its really cool, its a bout a nerd kid  with great eyes that follows a girl he liked and  discovered this awesoem sport. Again the male styles are refreshign to see, males that look like males.



Mekakucity Actors

I really dont like the art direction of this one, because it confuses me a lot, they change too much the shots on each dialogue that my brian tries to figure out whats going on, but the plot its briliant, its what keeps me hoocked up, this is like baccano, mixed time line, its like watching a pulp fiction movie. Its about a group of kids with supernatural powers.


One week friends

This is the only anime for girls i liked , the plot itsd interesting a girl that resets each week and forget about his friends, not family just friends, and this kid loves her, so he decides to be her friend, even if in each monday she forgets who is him.





Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii

Plot looks different, havent seen enough episodes but plot looks good so far.





And thats it for the new ones, old ones im still watching, One piece, Hunter x hunter, Jojo bizarre adventure. tonari no seki kun and Ace of diamond. Those are the animes im liking not because they are the best, but because somehow the plot gets me interested to continue watching, im the guy that likes more the plot, than super cool animation effects and cute characters.

Previous season really bummed me down. There wasn't a single good one. Everything looked the same and I was very dispointed with many shows. >:[
This season, "Soul Eater Not" is really bumming me down because it's kind of "destroying" the previous mythology/universe... and it is starting to look just like every other anime series out there. :(
However, there is a ray of hope in Captain Earth! I'm really enjoying it and it looks cool. :D
"Ping Pong The Animation" haven't seen it yet because...well, it's ping pong!!? But will take a look now that you mentioned it.

Bueno ire agregando ping pong y baby steps a mi lista :). Estaba debatiendo si mirarlos y ahora me convenciste.
 Vi unos capitulos de soul eater not solo para darle una oportunidad... pero que paso! es puro moe + yuri, es como si el autor un dia se levanto y dijo " tengo ganas de arruinar ese mundo tan loco que creé en soul eater" y asi nació soul eater NOT. XD

I like that you do these non review things because you suggest good shows (that I like most of the time). I am not interested in reviews too much, I just want to know a bit about the show, then if I get interested I check it out and maybe I will like it and watch it. So for me it is more then enough what you do when you create these lists. I know that I like them and I wait for them when a new season starts. (And please don't stop writing them like you did with your long art related journals, I liked those too along with your art.)

I'm a girl and I love Haikyuu!!; I don't know why I shouldn't (:
I think it's really funny and it's definetely on the top of my personal ranking for this season:D

And you talked about the art direction of Mekakucity Actors. I think that's just something you either don't like or like. It DOES kind of look like they didn't have a big budget, but I'm hooked to the Studio Shaft art style;)

Another Anime of this season I really like is "No game no life". The main-characters probably aren't all too new, but they are totally likeable and awesome;D No game no life is also comedy and explains some situations really well. Even though it might not be true in rl, it >does< sound like all theories are true(: [Worst "review" ever, but I don't want to spoil anything]

I tought that anime was just incest and lolicon in a fantasy world, its not?

Makiha Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Now that you say it... not sure how to counter that. It's not really incest, but it's also not not incest. The fantasy world thing is right, but at least the main characters enjoy being in that world.
I think you have to watch the first episode to find out if you like it or not. But I guess that one episode will be enough to decide whether to keep on watching it or not(:

The games were cool, but i noticed it will be lolicon and a strange incest relationship, so if this anime has sexual stuff in it, with a girl that look like 13, i try to skip this animes, thats cool when you are 18, but the older you get the creepeer it gets.
Reply
:iconmakiha:
Makiha Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
Well, I do understand your point. Between brother and sister there won't be any strange sexual stuff, as far as I noticed anyways. The only thing is that Shiro (the little sister) is a little jealous in Episode 2 or 3 over another girl. The thing that I really don't like about this Anime is that "other girl". I don't know if she was in Episode 1 but Steph is that: "we need to get Ecchi in here" girl. You will notice that in the beginning of Episode 2, I really didn't like the beginning of that Episode.

There are better Anime out there, for sure. But I just like that gambling stuff. It doesn't hurt to watch it, but it also doesn't hurt to not watch it. I definetely understand, that this Anime is not for everyone:D In the end I cannot tell if you will like it or not.

The only one I like this season is Haikyuu!! It feels different from other sports manga, I don't know why. The characters are likeable in their own way, there aren't exagerated movements (Toss of the Golden Dragon or something like that) and even the players from other teams are nice.
One of the things I like most is the interaction between Hinata and Kageyama. We had the typical enthusiastic guy and the genius with a past, that were destined to be rivals, it was like any other manga, but then, they became teammates and friends without any interest in beat each other anymore. It was really fresh, specially since Kageyama wasn't an arrogant douchebag and Hinata wasn't a total loser. I like them both.
The other thing I like are the female characters. The manager is not a tomboy and the other chick (manga) is a nice girl, neither of them is over sexualized. That means: no pantyshots or bouncing boobs.

Actually I like the sideshow characters the best, especially Sayaka x Mayumi, although Ritsu is very likeable given how stereotypical her character archetype is.

I love Haikyuu!! it is so entertaining and it keeps me pumped up when I watch it ^^
During ep 6 I kept saying poor Hinata, at least he's a bit calmed but then the actual setter from the other team came in and apparently Kageyama knows. This is so exciting! Now I have to wait~ (˘⌣˘)

Creo que No game no life se lleva la temporada en mis gustos, me mata de risa como se burlan de lo loli y el incesto, la animación es excelente y una paleta de colores muy psicodelicos y tonari no seki-kun tambien esta para reírse, son cortos y geniales.

Akuma no Riddle is what I'm waiting on :love: as soon as that last ep is released I will watch it. Kyouko Toshinou (Sparkle Nose Bleed) [V1] 

But one Anime I think you need to see is Kingdom, it's about the warring states period of china (basically the state before romance of the three kingdoms if you're familiar with that (dynasty warriors))

The anime is like a mix of Dynasty Warriors and the Total War game series :la: it's got large scale as well as grand strategy like total war, and it's got superheroes like Dynasty Warriors.

You're also missing out if you haven't seen Magi, Wakfu (technically not anime, french cartoon based on a video game, but it's heavily inspired by anime and it's gooood), and Hells. Nobody has seen Hells but it's one of my favorite movies.

I cannot help to like.... Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii (the world is still beautiful) ...not just it's romantic, drama but the humor in. It has this kind romeo and juliet but still not, more into Anna and the king, to awaken the king's deep depression and smile.

No but seriously, I absolutely adore Haikyuu!!. Tanaka is my favorite so far, but they're all endearing in their own right.
(The manager just seems to be there as empty space...? All we get about her is "she's pretty", "she's hot", "she's sexy". Not much of a character so far; hope that changes.)

I also recommend Yowamushi Pedal if you like Haikyuu!!.

The prettiness of a girl shouldn't bore you, it should be their personality... or lack thereof.

Here's a few anime series I am watching on Crunchy Roll that I think are/were pretty awesome...because of story/action.

Yowapeda (I'm seriously thinking about getting a road bike after watching this.. haha...)

No Game No Life

Witch Craft Works (I like this anime, but it pissed me off at the same time because our main character was...lacking)

Log Horizon (I disliked the series from the get go... but it actually evolved into something cool and I believe its getting a second season, which will hopefully have better pacing)

Beyond the Boundary (Kind of emoish.. but actually turned out pretty cool)

Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day (Man, talk about a series I AM SO GLAD I checked out. Normally I wouldn't watch something like this, the cover art for the series just rubs me the wrong way... but, I gave it a shot, and its filled with pitiful characters that grow up.. and it seems like its too short, like it should have had one more episode to the 11 eps that existed...but in the end, it works out I suppose...  I know it made me tear up)

Usagi Drop (Another anime I normally wouldn't watch, just trying to change my viewing habits.. (IE getting desperate for something cool) whatever the case, this anime is a heart warming tell)

Un-Go (This anime, turned out to be really awesome.... its short, at eleven eps.. but really cool)

These are all pretty short series, might be worth checking out.
