Fall 2009 First Impressions: Seitokai no Ichizon

Yes, there is such a thing as too much meta-humor. But I eagerly await the day that some studio, so bereft of ideas, decides to make an anime adaptation of lolikitsune’s visual novel about anibloggers.

This was much better done in the latest Higurashi OVA

Fall 2009 First Impressions: Nyan Koi!

My anticipation level for this show has been steadily increasing until it hit fever pitch yesterday. I have only one word to describe this show: Nyantastic!

Fall 2009 First Impressions: A Certain Scientific Railgun

Eden of the East – Srs fkn biz or just for the lulz?

The way Eden of the East is mixing dissimilar elements together has captured my interest, but at the same time, I don’t know if it’s really working. I was underwhelmed by the first episode, and wasn’t wowed by the second episode. For some reason, the show’s atmosphere is really throwing me off. It’s lighter, romcom moments don’t mix well with it’s darker, plot driven moments. And it’s darker, plot-driven moments are countered by plot holes and unrealistic character behaviors.

Why I don’t want to take it seriously
