So I wasn’t sure what to cover this season and was in the midst of writing a Weekly Reflections post when the Psycho-Pass section took on a life of its own……so I appear to be blogging Psycho-Pass 2. Normally I rule out sequels if I haven’t covered the 1st season, but I was travelling when S1 of P-P aired and think I would have covered it if I wasn’t so I’m exempting this from my own rules (yay arbitrary logic!)
Trying to drum up enthusiasm to write this post was difficult since I couldn’t care less about these two shows, but for completions sake I may as well get this over with. So here we go with genderbender fetish fuel and never-ending parade of boring girls…….Ore, Twin-Tail ni Narimasu! and Girl Friend BETA.
Fecking hell this is the 10th post in two weeks – that’s 30 shows I’ve had word vomit about, no wonder I’m getting lazy! Anyway some decent shows today – badass female cops taking down a mad bomber, how to make anime The Animation and quirky love interests solve emotional trauma……….Psycho-Pass 2, Shirobako and Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso.
Autumn 2014: First Impressions – Gundam Build Fighters Try, Parasyte-the maxim- and Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai
Okay we’re nearly done with first impressions and second episode are starting to appear, time to start wrapping things up and start settling my watching list. But first lets have a look at the exciting world of battling toy robots, the attack of alien body-snatchers and some rubbish about shepherds, boob groping and libraries…….Gundam Build Fighters Try, Parasyte -the maxim- and Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai.
Bit of a mixed bag next – not entirely sold on any of them – so a shorter post. Up next is competent but generic shounen, fantasy shoujo with serious budget issues and yet another magical harem series – The Seven Deadly Sins, Akatsuki no Yona and Trinity Seven.
Autumn 2014: First Impressions – Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de, Amagi Brilliant Park & Ai Tenchi Muyo!
And we’re back to stuff I’m not keen on – chuunibyou teens, less than magical theme parks and uninspired fanservice – Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de, Amagi Brilliant Park and Ai Tenchi Muyo!
Autumn 2014: First Impressions – Garo: Honoo no Kokuin, Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road and Donten ni Warau
Wow, what is this sorcery – more things I actually liked? Maybe the season is finally picking up! Next up is sex & demon-slaying, hot-blooded cycling and colour coordinated bishie brothers……Garo: Honoo no Kokuin, Yowamushi Pedal 2: Grande Road and Donten ni Warau.
