Damn has it been a long time since I’ve talked about any anime! I apologize for this, so bear with me here.
- 1: Cute High Earth Defense Club Love!
A lot of people, especially Tumblr fucks, hate this show with a passion. However, I’m gonna have to disagree a little bit. Is it unfunny? Most of the time, yes. Is it bland? Yeah, especially the villains. Is it misogyny? No. I’ll show this confession right here.
For so long, men being feminine was seen as weak, cowardly, and other synonyms that I couldn’t think of at the top of my head. Hell, it’s still seen by a lot as weak. In a way, I kind of respect this show for showing men that it’s okay to show your feminine side, and hey! At least they kick some actual ass.
That being said, that doesn’t mean I like it. I just think it’s okay.
- 2: Maria the Virgin Witch
This! This picture sums up the biggest problem with this anime in a nutshell! I hate this show. I hate every single fucking thing about this show. This may be one of the worst shows I have ever seen. It sure as fuck is Ultimate Shit for 2015! The main protagonist is a fucking bitch, and all the other characters are boring. It is too preachy for its own good, and it is a slap in the face to historical fiction! I damn well knew that the British and the French weren’t gonna stop fighting because some bratty 12-year-old witch uses her fucking magic to ruin shit.
I’m gonna go out of control if I say anymore. If you wanna know everything about my opinion of this show, read this.
- 3: Assassination Classroom
I have the first manga volume at home, and the anime adaptation is just as amazing as the manga. I especially love Koro-sensei. He is so much fun to watch! Actually, the whole thing is so much fun to watch, especially the assassination scenes. Besides that, Koro-sensei is such an understanding teacher who is really awesome. He makes the classroom look like fun to be in. Yes, despite the fact that the entire class has to murder someone, it is a fun class to be in. If nothing better comes up, then this is definitely Ultimate Platinum.
Oh by the way, Nagisa looks like Vocaloid V Flower.
- 4: Yuri Kuma Arashi
This is an interesting one. The best part is easily the character design. I like this art style. It kind of reminds me of Sally the Witch in a nostalgic way. Besides that, the story is very compelling, and the two bear characters Ginko and Lulu are pretty funny to watch. On the surface, it may seem like a pointless fanservice show, but it’s actually much deeper than that. I say give it a go.
- 5: Food Wars
The animation is gorgeous, the food looks very delicious, and HOLY SHIT A CHALLENGE!
TOO BAD MOST OF THE CHARACTERS ARE EITHER BORING OR ASSHOLES!
I’m being serious. The main protagonist and most of the characters in general (especially Erina) are giant assholes! But that’s not the biggest problem. The fanservice is.
I have never seen so much unnecessary fanservice in my entire life. I understand why they do it (to show how good the food is), but God damn! Couldn’t they come up with a less disgusting way of showing how good the food is?!
So yeah, I don’t like this show.
- 6: Wish Upon the Pleiades
WHO THE FUCK NAMES THEIR KID SUBARU?! THAT IS THE WORST FUCKING NAME YOU COULD EVER GIVE TO A CHILD! WHAT THE FUCK?!
That asides, is this show boring? Yeah… kind of. Well, at least the main protagonist is. You all know (at least some should) how much I hate boring protagonists. However, the other characters are interesting except Aoi, Subaru’s best friend. And the concept is pretty damn original. They have this president, and the girls have to find the pieces of his ship. However, it’s executed like a generic magical show. Overall, this show is kind of boring.
- 7: The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan
As a Haruhi fan who has watched the original anime and the comedy spin-off, I’m confused. This doesn’t really feel like a Haruhi product.
“YEAH WELL THIS IS ABOUT YUKI, NOT HARUHI!”
I know, but something about it just doesn’t have that special Haruhi vibe. The continuity is great, but Yuki just feels off. In fact, a lot of the characters feel off except for Kyon and Mikuru. I get that this spin-off wanted to give Yuki more emotions and more of a personality than just an emotionless alien. That would’ve been great, but the way this show does it makes Yuki oddly out of character. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya did this idea better while making the characters, well, in character.
But hey, props to Sagelight and Funimation for getting the original voice actors!
- 8: Teekyuu 4 and the Nasuno spin-off
It’s like the other Teekyuu shit. Moving on.
- 9: Mikagura School Suite
Heads up! I prefer the anime design over the original!
Holy shit! An anime based off of a series of Vocaloid songs, and it doesn’t suck?! Holy shit! Is that even possible?!
Actually, it’s pretty damn good. Erina, the main protagonist and not the other Erina that I hate, reminds me of PepperAnn in which she’s arrogant, cocky, and thinks she’s the greatest, yet she gets consequences for it. Also, she’s gay. Seriously, raise your hand if you didn’t think that Erina is gay.
See? No one.
- 10: Show By Rock!!
CGI IN AN ANIME, AND IT’S NOT SHIT?! IS THAT POSSIBLE AS WELL?!
In fact, the CGI isn’t only not shit, but it’s great! In fact, the animation in general is great! In fact, the show is great! I honestly didn’t expect for this anime to be as great as I thought it would be, but I am thankful. This is definitely the greatest surprise I’ve ever received. The characters, while one-trick ponies, do occasionally slip out of it.
HOLY SHIT! A BEACH EPISODE WITH ACTUAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!
I’m so sorry. It’s just so rare in anime. Speaking of rare- arrogant asshole characters who are still likable, aka
The trick here is that when an asshole character is being an asshole, you give them consequences, and don’t take their asshole behavior too far!
So yeah. Most of you are expecting me to say that 2015 so far is shit, but honestly, I think it’s going pretty well. Hopefully, summer and fall won’t fuck things up for me.
