Dog days (Impression)

It’s hard to describe this show to anybody; its very moe with its characters designs.

The story /development feels so simple it might as well be a  kodomo however, there are these out of place fan-service moments that make you quickly change your mind.

This show seems to be very cutesy and with the added bonus of wars where no one can die (it really takes away sense of panic.)

You seem to be following Sink (yes his name is sink) on his journey to find a way home however, I don’t really care because there is no rush, no risks, nothing at stake!

*Oh no, he might miss a day of school*

Its protagonist like Sink that really deters me from reading teen manga.

*Pre teen shows have a habit of trying to please young teens while keeping it cutesy/simple for the children.*

These shows have 2 options: aim for the children/aim for the teens. (These types of show must choose which demographic they are aiming for by the second half.)

This show seems to have pushed away the children for the young teens however, the characters/story is so simple most older teens would not even give this a second glance.

(Who ever decided to put fan-service in this show was an idiot.)

*You could be making a bigger return on this show if you just took out the fan-service.*

If you have been looking for an anime that does not involve high school, moe or even over the top silly moments then this show is for you.

The plot of the show is that 2 samurai are telling stories about their past journeys.

O-o I know at first that might sound a little boring however, the story manages to keep the pace of each tail at a respectable amount of episodes. (No filler over kill)

The two samurai that are telling us these past stories are known as eccentric for their belief of what true wisdom is to a worrier.

This anime takes it’s time to tell a story without resorting to fan service or dumbing down the characters motives.

I felt like these people were real, I believed the world they lived in was real; now can I just see a little more anime making the same effort with motivation/settings.  (Without being pretentious)

*Their shoulders are HUGE!*

2013 Autumn anime

Last season when I looked at the new shows coming out I had some idea of what I was excited to see however, there is nothing on next season’s list that captures my imagination.

*I feel very worried*

(My first reaction to seeing next season’s list)

“Oh, there making a second season of bottom biting bugs”

XD I rest my case.

28/08/2013 TT-TT my day

Sorry about the lack of post today

  1. I feel very annoyed with myself  for not meeting my mate yesterday (been ages)
  2. A woman randomly snapped at me (she stared at me and said I invaded her space)
  3. Only got one page of concept art done for my mate’s comic.

I will post something Thursday

(XD even if I’m stuck finishing the 6th chapter of my story)

Good night and thanks for following me.

Quick review: Poyopoyo

Image

^_^ This has to be one of the cutest shows I have ever seen in my life.

Each episode revolves around this perfectly round cat called Poyopoyo who likes to have his presence known. He could be a ninja, he could be a lover or maybe he is your lunch.

This show dose seems to overplay the “looks like food” joke a little too much however, what do you expect when the show has 52 episodes.

The animation is soft, cuddly and will put you in the mood for a short tail about a family and the pudgy cat.

If you want some mindless cute fun this is truly a must see.

Dog and scissors (impression)

I don’t know what to make of this show?

I feel like I’m being entertained however, I feel very bored; The show is very episodic in execution.

I do like episodic shows, but I do feel like they’re wasting the original idea for over the top escapades that can involve scissors.

The idea of a boy that came to back to life to read a book should be the main focus of the show but no, we need pointless side stories that bring us no closer to the ending.

I’m going to guess that his new life is the story he wanted to read; i will feel very disappointed if that is the case.

(This show could have been very fascinating)

* Kiri called, he wants his scissors back.*

Review: Yuru Yuri

This anime is about a group of ditsy Moe girls who plod around coursing mild inconveniences for people around them. Will the girl succeeds at entertaining us or will we be sitting at are computer screens slowly deteriorating are brains.

OK guys, that is as good an explanation as I can come up with for this show because in essence this show doesn’t have a story or a plot.

*k-on has more substance than this *

The only way that you can tell these characters apart is by looking at their hair because for the most part they don’t have any distinctive personalities; sure each characters is given a trait however, having the skill to pass test without studying does not count as a personality.

Case in point:

Akari: she blends into the background                                                                                               Yui: *there is nothing I can remember about this character*                                                        Kyouko: can pass test without studying                                                                                   Chinatsu: *same problem*

*It’s ironic that I remember Akari *

The only two characters that are worth watching are the Ikeda twins because there perverted mind can lead too some classic over the top moments. When ether of the girls take off their glasses they envision a perverted reality where all their friends are secretly lovers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 *They are the best moments in the show*

But even then, they have no personality outside of drooling and nose bleeds.

The girls have stolen the old tea clubs room to created their own club which is call the amusement club. (That’s a lot of clubs)  Now you would think most of the anime would be based in this room well you would be wrong, in fact the entire point of the amusement club feels pointless for they rarely use the room throughout the series.

In conclusion, if you want mindless Moe in its purest form the go for it however, there is nothing about this show that will make you want to watch more part from how dose this show function on practically nothing.

Final thoughts: *It was pointless, yet I don’t feel that I wasted my time.*

I give this show 4/10

Even for a Moe show this anime felt like it was lacking any sense of direction.

^_^ cool find

While hunting around a comic book shop in a random town I found 3 “how to draw manga” book’s.
(^_o £11 per book is a steal)
I do feel annoyed that I did not pick up a new comic book however, I’m overjoyed about finding these useful study guides.

*own 6 of them now*

*3 bad guides*

*9 in total*

What the heck I wrong with their English; I know for a fact you could have gotten voice actors who have smoother English.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             (Even “Genshiken” had an actor who could speak smother English and that was just for no throwaway character.)

To me Alice is from European land where everyone is cute, cuddly abnormally beautiful.

This show is amazingly cute however, the jokes they make about their friend being from a different country fall flat because Alice talks smooth Japanese, never has culture shock and finally she does not stand out from the other girls. (It’s like she as always lived there)

This show is purely a moe fest that does not want you to think about what you are watching.

I’m very worried about this show because it seems to still be very easily side tracked and has still not really decided on what it’s about.

We have a character motivation however, we have no idea how she is going to execute it or where they are/were travelling to.

We are over the halfway point with this show and it has still not given itself a set in stone plot; I have no clue how this show is going to end.

So far we have been dumped onto 3 different stories and I still don’t feel that we have moved any closer to an outcome.                                                                                                                         It’s coming to the point where it feels like 3 different writers wanted to make an anime, they did not have the money to do this so they compromised by coming up with a very loose plot and warping stories around it.

XD just chooses one story and go for it. (I want stability and familiarity)
