Spring 2015 Anime Preview

March 13, 2015

springlrg

Where on earth is the year going?  I really have zero idea about time these days, it is really getting rather disconcerting – I swear it was January last week!

Anyway, here we are on the run-up to a new season, and it is a big one!  Loads of new stuff to get acquainted with, with a huge amount of manga adaptations, and in particular Shounen manga adaptations, hitting our screens (which makes a change from the litany of light novel adaptations we’re had in recent seasons).  Quite a few anime inspired by games as well, which seems to be a trend that’s on the rise for good or bad.

Right lets get on with this – this post goes on forever!

Durarara!! x2 Shou – 03

January 28, 2015

Durarara x2 Shou - 03-01Later than planned, but couldn’t be helped.  Anyway this episode was mainly concerned with the identity of the ‘Hollywood’ serial killer and mostly takes place at the same time as the events of the previous two episodes.  I do love how Durarara!! has so many things happening simultaneously – inevitable when you have such a large cast I suppose.

Durarara!! x2 Shou – 02

January 18, 2015

Durarara x2 Shou - 02-05Well I couldn’t not blog this sequel now could I?  Opening up this draft had me awash in a sea of nostalgia – Drrrr!! was the very first series I started to blog five years ago!

Anyway, this episode continues the work of the first episode in that it is mostly concerned with introducing the new characters and reacquainting us with old favourites.  Considering I didn’t have time to rewatch the first season of Drrr!! prior to starting this season, I’m pretty pleased the show is taking the time to do this.  All the familiar faces and places also serve to remind me why I loved this series so much – this episode was a lot of fun.
