Late Summer 2013 Anime Impressions

Last season I had a bit of an anime crash. You know those times where your interests basically fall elsewhere, and so it becomes pretty hard to keep up with a new anime season…Ya, well luckily I’m slowly recuperating with this season, which is why I decided to only pick up a small handful of shows to watch. There is still a lot I’d like to see so any recommendations or demands for me to watch certain things are quite welcomed! Continue reading

From the Worst to the Best: Spring 2013 Anime First Impressions

A new season for me to fall behind on again has arrived! As spring season goes, there isn’t as much selection as usual, but at least there are a few very solid series that will keep me interested. We also kick off the season with a bunch of controversy with Aku no Hana, I have no idea where that argument went, but last time I checked people were at a point where they believed we shouldn’t categorize it as anime at all. Fun times! 

I’m also part of FAL (Fantasy Anime League) this season, and I’m failing miserably. Blame Oregairu which ruined everything! Either way, if you’re part of it too, I’d love to hear what you made as your choices…So without further ado, I present my list of top picks for the season! Continue reading

Naruto ~Review~

Rating: 6.7/10

A bit more than a year ago, I wrote a post making a promise to watch the Naruto with an open mind. As you all must probably already know, I’m a bit of a procrastinator, but I finally have seen the original series and am here to finally review it!

To put it simply, Naruto is…an average series. It has some positive aspects, but there’s also a lot worth complaining about. Before I start to go more into details, I just want to get it out there that I pretty much skipped all the 80 filler episodes from hell. I tried to get through at least a few episodes, but it was unbearably bad. There isn’t much to say about them besides the fact that they are unwatchable, so rather than boring you throughout this review by complaining, I’m going to instead ignore those episodes and focus on the parts that were adapted from the manga.

Winter 2013 – (late) Anime Halftime Impressions!

As the title suggests, I’m here to bring my opinion on the series of this season a bit later than usual. The list only includes the series that I’m pretty much caught up on, so on account of that you won’t be seeing my opinion on series such as: Zetsuen no Tempest, Sakarasou, Little Busters, Jojo, and Hunter x Hunter. It’s safe to say I have my work cut out for me in playing catch-up.

Although there are some good series this season, there are still a lot that can simply be described as boring. On account of that, I’ve been spending more of my time trying to catch up with some old series I’ve been wanting to complete (rather successfully may I add). With that said, here’s my late thought on the anime I have seen from the spring season!  Continue reading

From the Worst to the Best: Winter 2013 Anime First Impressions

I know I complain nearly every season about the lack of good anime, and this one isn’t really an exception, but instead of just being negative, I’ll give it credit for having a couple of series I totally approve of . The sequels are good and if you don’t count the dozens of short anime series released, you get left with a few good things.

For the most part, I can at least say everything seems to be entertaining. Also, in a time in my life where I’m having trouble organizing everything, a smaller anime load is probably for the best. Anyway, before I start to rant, enjoy the list that can be found after the jump! Continue reading
