Now let’s talk about anime I REALLY liked!
Tap dat loli ass.
Yes! I’m alive! 2013 has been a busy year for me and I’m sorry I didn’t post as much in the last few months. But I’m back and I’ve seen more anime that you’d expect so without further ado, here’s my ranking of Top 20 shows I’ve seen last year. May 2014 have less shitty anime!
I’m fascinated when a shounen sports show touches on themes that go beyond ‘the power of friendship’ and ‘might makes right’. Yes, Kuroko no Basket’s central themes are no different from a lot of shounen manga, but by choosing to take Kuroko’s side of the story, Fujimaki opens up a lot of avenues to explore. Note that I’m not saying this is a direct interpretation of Fujimaki’s work. If anything I’m just breaking down the motifs of the series for my own amusement. Warning: Here be spoilers.
The production issues have certainly caught up with Gatchaman Crowds but let’s work out what happened in this ending.
There’s only one otome game adaptation you should be watching and that’s Uta no Prince-sama.
I am disillusioned. No pictures because I hate anime.
Gatchaman Crowds is as unpredictable as its protagonist.
Whenever I finish the first episode of a Kenji Nakamura anime, I’m never quite sure how I feel about them just yet. There’s a feeling of utter confusion that I often wrestle with. But one thing’s for sure, I liked what I saw.
Someone might come up to you and say that Free! is important because _________. They’re probably right. Maybe this anime about highschool boys forming a swimming club is in fact, a game changer. But when it comes down to just enjoying it as an anime, does all of that really matter?
As the final credits rolled, I couldn’t quite come into terms with what I had just witnessed. Did this series just end with a five minute clip of scenes that have yet to be fully animated and a title card saying, “End of Part One”? Did this series just conclude itself with flashbacks and an entire scene from the first episode, played in reverse?
