this week's anime thoughts... [Jul. 18th, 2013|09:23 pm]
[Current Mood |contentcontent]

OK, I'm shallow. I'm enjoying Free! a lot. It's silly and very cliched, but the addition of the last major member of the cast (going from the OP and ED) was a lot of fun. And it's so pretty!

I also watched the first two episodes of Gin no Sagi, the anime adapted from the manga by the artist of FMA, about a nerdy kid from Sapporo attending an agricultural high school just because it's a boarding school. Haven't learned much of his backstory yet, but it's pretty amusing to see the city boy learn the joys of farming and animal husbandry. Oh my, I couldn't do it. I wish he wasn't so fixated on the cute girl because his group members are way more interesting to me, but I'm along for the ride (for now).

I also watched most of the first episode of Makai Ouji, but it didn't do much for me. The main character has a very high opinion of himself, which right now is more irritating than, say, amusing right now. I might try another episode to see if it gets any better. I'm hoping he gets some humility knocked into him by the demons and he becomes less of an ass. *shrugs* Pretty demons and fighting! Random Biblical characters invoked! British nobility! I'm not against the concept, just the main character.

Majestic Prince is still going strong. I really like this series, and I really enjoy the mecha fight scenes. I am still not that fond of the new pilot (as well as the boy-crazy one), but I think my fondness of the main character is overriding the things I don't like. Also, the narrative is interesting. Not sure where it's going...

Thoroughly enjoyed the third ep of Free! too. Hopefully it keeps getting better from here. My gosh... that unforgettable dive. Oh dear, sneezing Haruka is the most adorable thing in the world

Makai Ouji I skipped skipped first ep ^^ I'm only really interested in one character's seiyuu... which turned out to be a good thing, because other than the voice, really, nothing else kept me interested in it. Oops. And YES OMG the main character was an ass.

Sagi no Spoon I'm thinking of wathing also only for the seiyuu of one of the supporting characters. The main character seems like the type that will really annoy me, so I'll have to see first if I can stand him enough to continue hahaha

Sneezing Haruka was adorable. XD

I'm still on the fence about watching more Makai Ouji...I guess it depends on how I feel.

The main character in Gin no Sagi is annoying, but he is changing even within the first two episodes so I'm hoping he will just continue to become less annoying as the series goes on.
