First Impressions: Spring 2015 – Part 1

April 7, 2015

springsmlOkay so I’m way too far behind to even consider breaking things into my usual 3 shows per post (15 shows already out people!!), so you’re getting two posts of quick kneejerk reactions instead so I can get back on top of things again……well that is the plan anyway.

First up is: Oregairu 2, Danmachi, Shokugeki no Soma, Plastic Memories, Vampire Holmes, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works 2 and Gunslinger Stratos.

I didn’t much like many of these – fair warning~!

Spring 2015 Anime Preview

March 13, 2015


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.
