…And here’s part 2! This will count down the top half of the anime’s airing this season as rated by me. Again, this is only anime that I have watched more than 2 episodes of.

Witch Craft Works – 6/10
The only thing that stopped me lumping this show in with Magical Warfare is that WCW is actually kind of funny. Other than that, it’s basically Shakogan no Shana.

Saki 2 – 7/10
Saki is kind of a niche show. It’s about a group of girls who play Mahjong (and not the concentration-style stuff that’s popular over here, but the poker-style type played in Japan) in their school’s high school club. If you liked the first series, this is more of the same, but it requires you to have seen season 1 to know what is going on. I enjoy it, but I don’t expect anybody who doesn’t find non-physical sports interesting to like it. Read the rest of this entry »

Winter 2014 Anime Season (Part 1)

Decided to give my thoughts on this season’s currently airing series that I have followed over the last few months. I’ll be splitting this in half, starting with the worst and moving up to the best. Keep in mind, this is only shows I have watched more than 2 episodes of, and these are meant as short, one or two sentence thoughts.

Super Sonico The Animation – 2/10
I really don’t get the point of this show. They took a company mascot and made a show out of it. It’s mostly fanservice and nothing of substance really happens. Read the rest of this entry »

3 – Problem Children Are Coming From Another World – Black and White by Iori Nomizu

Problem Children is an anime that caught me completely off guard. Not only was I not expecting to like it as much as I did, I was also not expecting it to bust out with an amazing OP theme.

The song is upbeat and rock oriented, the visuals are colorful and eye-catching, and the lyrics inserted into the visuals are interesting as well. The song is what really makes this one stand out though, as it is easily one of my favorites OP to one of the best animes of 2013. Read the rest of this entry »

Top 11 Anime OP Themes of 2013 – Part 1

21 12 2013

Well, its almost the end of the year, so I guess its time for a list or two from me. I’ve watched a lot of anime this year and felt like a list of my favorite OP themes seemed appropriate. Keep in mind that these don’t reflect my opinion on the shows themselves, just the opening song and visuals.

Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited Review

4 07 2013

Zettai_Karen_Children_The_Unlimited_03_JPG_650x10000_q85(CAUTION: This Review contains minor spoilers. Nothing major, but if you hate any spoilers, you’ll want to skip this one.)


Easily one of my favorite series airing last season, The Unlimited managed to draw my attention from the first episode and keep me interested throughout the whole series. In fact, I went into this series blind, knowing nothing at all about it, and after watching the first couple episodes and learning it was a spin off of Psychic Squad (Zettai Karen Children), I went back and watched the entire 52 episode first series. That isn’t something a series can get me to do easily, but the characters of The Unlimited have this air of mystery about them that just draws you in.

For those of you who, like me, know nothing of this series, Zettai Karen Children takes place in an alternate version of our world, where people with psychic powers exist and have been involved with goverment, military, and even shaped the conflict of past wars. The main characters of the original series, 3 girls known as “The Children” work for the japanese government organization know as BABEL as basically a special OPS team. Throughout the series, they conflict with Hyobu Kyosuke, a psychic who has been alive since World War II, who believes that human will never accept espers and creates a terrorist organization known as PANDRA to rebel against BABEL and the government.

The Unlimited is about that guy. You’re interested now, aren’t you? Read the rest of this entry »
