Big Order (Biggu Ōdā)

Published by:

Big Order was the first of the Spring 2016 season to end since it was only 10 episodes. At least the action kept moving so it wasn’t a show like Grimgar which seemed like it was going nowhere for the whole season.

The show is about a boy named Eiji who is blamed for the world destruction of the world 10 years earlier. Since Eiji is blamed for everything that has happened, everyone seems to be against him except his sister. Eiji has to try to survive in a world that wants him dead. Along the way he has to fight to stay alive and also keep his sister safe. Continue reading

Dog Gods! (Inukami!)

Published by:

Inukami is a show I picked at random from a bunch of harem animes. I wanted something longer than 12 episodes and Inukami clocks in at 25 plus a “movie”. So it definitely fit the bill.

Keita and Youko are paired together through means which are discussed in the show. Keita is a perverted teenage shaman low on cash and Youko is a spirit bound by contract to each other. Keita is a nice change from the usual weak character but he has a lot to learn. Like any shaman and spirit, they have spirits to exorcise to get some cash and upgrade their lifestyle but along the way they have many adventures.

Inukami is one of the rare ones where all the girls get some airtime. Continue reading

Girl Meets Bear (Kumamiko)

Published by:

I was not planning to watch this show but one day I was sitting at home and caught up on all my shows for the season so I decided to see what this was about.

Would you think a bear would know about the outside world? Well Machi does. Machi is a young shrine maiden who has lived her whole life in the mountains and knows nothing about the city except that she wants to go to school there and some day be a part of it. For her knowledge of the city, she relies on Natsu, her talking guardian bear who has been with her since she was a baby. Natsu does have some knowledge and can even use technology. Can Machi survive Natsu’s city tests to see if she deserves a chance to go to school in the city? Continue reading

Nanako-san Teki na Nichijou Dash!!

Published by:

I’m not even sure how I came across Nanako but started reading and it’s an okay little manga.

The premise seems to be about Kawara and Nanako and the “interesting” positions you find them in. Kawara is a boy who seems like your traditional “nice guy”. But he’s like every other teenager and seems to really like Nanako who is a shapely girl that doesn’t seem to be too bright. Could be wrong but there isn’t much academically with her. Kawara seems to always be trying to look up her skirt or ends up in positions where he can because she’s clumsy at times but then also tomboyish too where she’ll climb up somewhere without thinking about being in a skirt. Continue reading

Furumapura

Published by:

Furumapura is another manga by Cool Kyoushinsha. (Yes I like his work dammit)

It’s a simple 4 koma about high school girls who meet by chance. Kyou is a loud, overbearing kind of girl who seems to have an Irish accent or probably British since they love the Brits but it seems more Irish to me (at least that’s how the English version I read, made it seem). While Makoto is a quiet girl who uses signs to talk but it’s not with words. These signs are numbered 1-10 as if it was a rating system. Kyou has to figure out what the numbers mean and she pretty much carries the book since Makoto does not talk at all, just uses the signs. Continue reading

Soul Eater (Sōru Ītā)

Published by:

Soul Eater is one that I kept pushing back for some reason. Not sure why since I’ve been on the lookout for longer animes. I am so tired of the 12-13 episode crap of recent times.

The show takes place at Death Weapon Meister Academy. The main characters are 3 students who are weapon meisters and they’re paired with weapons who can transform into humans with their own personalities. Their goal is to make their weapons into Death Scythes who are suitable to serve the headmaster. That headmaster is Death. To do this they must collect 99 souls and a witch in that order or they have to start over. Continue reading

Daily Lives of High School Boys (Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou)

Published by:

Daily Lives of High School Boys is a bunch of skits pieced together to form an anime. There is no coherent storyline to follow, it’s just wholesome comedy fun.

The show follows Tadakuni and his 2 friends through everyday things…or is it school things at their all boys academy? They actually have a debate about this in the anime. They obliterate the 4th wall without mercy. They even talk about the guy who writes the manga. It has after school stuff, during school, little sisters, older sisters, bullies and all the things from those awkward years for most us. Continue reading

D-Frag! (Dīfuragu!)

Published by:

In the genre of school comedies you have some that focus on school and some that focus on the club side. D-Frag is one of the ones that take the club side and take it up a notch.

A “delinquent” named Kenji is forcibly recruited into the Games Club and I mean forcibly. When he joins the club he meets some awkward girls who are the other members of the club. Kenji is needed so that the club isn’t disbanded. The girls of the club all have some “element”. Water, fire, earth, etc. and they’re dead serious about them too. As the show goes on the club gets into battles with other clubs over some form of supremacy. The show is almost all comedy and battles so it’s always moving. Continue reading

Tonari no Seki-kun the Master of Killing Time (My Neighbor Seki-kun)

Published by:

Tonari no Seki-kun is a short show coming in at about 7 minutes per episode. The premise of the show is about two students Rumi and Seki. Seki is always doing something that is not classwork and Rumi is “trying” to study and pay attention but gets sucked into Seki’s world. Even in the cover shot you see Seki building a volcano. While Seki is doing all these things, Rumi is watching and not paying attention. Continue reading
