Hello guys! Sorry there was no post yesterday (life complications).
^_o seeing as we are about to enter the new year I thought this would be the perfect time to tell the people who don’t look at my score page what my top/worst anime of 2014 where.
- As long as an anime ends in 2014 it can make the list.
- No season 2 or beyond
- I must be able to legally stream it in my region (^-o I’m uk friendly).
Additional: My final official list will most likely will be finished much latter into 2015 (I’m determined to finish noragami).
1. Nagi no asukara
This anime is about a bunch of sea children that come onto land because there school has been shut down. While on land they are preparing a sea doll that will be used in a ceremony that appeases the sea god and lets the humans and sea people live a harmonies life…. That would be the case if the two people liked each other.
This show was beautiful! You did get the annoying character in this show and you did over dramatic moments that really wouldn’t make sense in the context of the moment (just because a couple is having a moment of drama in one scene doesn’t automatically mean it will transition into the next).
Imagine you were making toast and someone randomly walks in talking like a dramatic Shakespearean actor (you would not keep a straight face).
*XD it’s my favorite staple of drama anime.*
This is the only anime that I have watched that made me want to see more (didn’t want it to end).
2. Log horizon
A bunch of gamers get stuck in a fully immersive online game and have to come up with a democracy in order to create laws that will help bring order thought-out the land.
Was I the only person going in this that expected something more of the lines of Maoyu than SAO? Maoyu was a wordy and oddly more obsessed with politics then the actual story of the show.
Compared to the onslaught of death game anime that have been coming out this was a breath of fresh air (you can’t die). If you’re not a fan of wordy anime don’t watch this.
3.Hozuki no reitetsu
This a comedy about Japanese hell….what ells do you need to know???
I really don’t like talking about comedy anime! Your entire enjoyment of this show rest of the fact if your enjoy dead pan humour.
^_^ For the most part the jokes are spot on and that’s all I ever wish for with a comedy anime.
I’m sorry this is sort but…..comedy ether makes you laugh or cringe.
You have a group of idol girls from a small company trying to make it big…..oh, any company that is big and makes money is evil.
I don’t like this anime! BUT….….I can’t say that this was poorly produce or paced. This anime was of a good quality, you could tell how much work and love went into writing the story , developing each character to have a realistic (for the most part) personalities and giving each girl a moment to shine.
I will always remember that last episode speech: “The victims of 911 would have felt a lot less sad if they had idol girls.” XD It comes out of nowhere and I can’t for the life of me figure out why.

O_O THIS SHOW! anyone who tries to tell me the animation in this show is good is begging for a punch in the nose! animation is more then frame rate and pretty imagery.
Look at this image and say the animators cared about the quality of this production?
You might be asking: what is this show about? I honestly couldn’t tell you.
There is a magical school and some kids have to be sent there because……the plot says so.
Are there bad guys? Answer: Kind of?
Are there good guys? Answer: Kind of?
You learn to dislike everyone in this show so there is no real reason to pick a side.
The plot and the story are all over the place with every little sense or coherency trying it bind it all together.
This is a paragraph from my anime log. The show had been using telaporting throughout its entire run and suddenly they randomly bring up this crystal (that no one had been using) to send you to specific places.
“It will teleport you to predetermined destination”……opposed to other forms of teleporting that just dump you in a random field??? *I could summon a gate sir, but we do run the risk of being attacked by cows.*
Thank you magical warfare for putting that image in my head.
If you’re going to watch magical warfare I recommend you “watch it”. There are just as many visual problem as there are verbal.
*I need to get my friend to watch this fully before I can properly review it (there is a good reason why i don’t do big reviews).*
30. z/x Ignition
Each time I look at this image it makes me think he is inside the stomach of a hentai monster.
what’s the plot to z/x Ignition? I DON’T KNOW!
Some people have smart phones that trap monsters the end….oh, there is also a harem randomly thorough in there.
Nothing is explained! You spend the entire show just looking at the screen begging for answers that never come.
31. La corda d’oro -blue sky-
What is this show about: A music school….that’s it!
There is a music contest that some people entire and the students seem to like it. *tumble weed*
T_T Do you want to know why this anime truly fails. It’s not the still frames and lazy arm movements to the music, it’s not even the extremely bland female lead that could be erased from that story with no repercussion.
This anime that was aimed and created to arouse ladies fantasies heavily lacks sexy men. You have the friend who spends his time complaining, that rose guy and the child hood enemy whose parents died in a car accident (there are some hot males there just for eye candy, but they never do anything with are female lead).
There is no reason to ever watch this anime.
T-o these charterers are so bland (some charterers don’t even have bio’s).
This was the first anime where I personally skipped an episode, i’m not going to say which one because it would take too much time/effort to explain why I dropped it.
The show stayed consistent though out its entire run.
What ells is there to say?
It’s a dark dead pan anime that will either have you laughing or yawning in complete boredom.
Each of the characters tends to follow the same running joke. Somehow the show sneaks a very simple story in the background that indicates time has been passing, even though are characters antics don’t require any indication of the passing of time
*The joke went on way too long*
I have to admit that I do like the screaming fish plants (I would like one for my shelf).
After watching this show I have decided that in the future I will only do a beginning and an end impression for comedies (they usual stick to the same shtick).
1st Witch Craft Works
This is one of the only show this season that I will watch willingly (too bad I’m still trying to beat last season, I would watch way more of this If the bad shows were not staking me). It takes the modern magical warrior and makes it fun again, we have spent way too long on “what will my family think” and “I have to save the planet” it’s such a relief to see a show where the stakes are not world destroying(far as we know). Plus it’s nice to have bad guys who have personalise of their own. *how often do you see the enemy goofing about in a karaoke bar *
2nd Nobunaga the Fool
This anime does not know if it’s a fighting robot action anime or a historical anime. It does manage to blend the two but, I honestly don’t think that the robots really add much to the story as a haul (in fact it’s really distracting).
*You’re getting into the nice mood of the historical setting and then BANG! Giant robot battle.*
3rd Hozuki no Reitetsu
^_^ Like I said many a time “what I find funny another might find boring”
All I know is that Hozuki no Reitetsu is a dark comedy that leaves me in stitches every time.
*I might only make first/last impressions of comedies in the future.*
4th The Pilot’s Love Song
I wasn’t really sure where I stood with this show when it started however, as it progressed I can now understand where everything links together and the relationships these people share. These characters could actual made me cry by having a heart melting confiscation that felt real and honest (no cheap tricks just heart-warming words).
I fear that my love for this show is going to be destroyed by how this anime chooses to pay its last couple of episodes. *hopefully the action will pull it though its final challenge (don’t really care about the romance).*
5th Silver Spoon 2
I know that with a lot of second season the shows can radically change in feel and mood but, in the case of silver spoon I feel that I lost a lot of its charm in the transition. My biggest problem with this season is that it seems to ignore the agricultural aspect of the show so that we can spend more time on…..well…school life without the school. By taking away agricultural lesson we have just been left with the day to day life of a city boy that goes to a farming school.
This is a cool looking show……the problem is that that’s all it has going for it.
I honestly can’t remember what’s going on in this show, nether can I remember any of these characters names or personalities. *This is purely sugar for the eyes.*
7th Wake Up, Girls!
This is a good if you want to see a group of underdogs trying to work their way up without the help of a big corporation. Like many idol anime it suffers the problem of having too many characters and not enough episode to give each one a story however, the show could have at least made their clothes look different or give them creative hair (I really can’t tell them apart).
8th Wizard Barristers
The show fails at being interesting because it don’t actually focus on what it set out to do. When you offer me a show about Barristers I expect to see are character spend a lot of time in the court house. Who would have of guessed that this show was about an annoying random girl running around and creating giant robots form that tile. *why hasn’t she been dismissed yet?*
I feel that this show could have been a lot better if they were detectives.
9th Soni-Ani: SUPER SONICO THE ANIMATION
o-o I can’t be mad at this show. Sure it’s boring and does not offer simulating characters but, it was never designed to entertain in first place. Do you know who sonico is? If yes, the show has achieved its goal. *spread the word of the girl who never takes her head phones off.*
10th Z/X IGNITION
Is anyone ells watching this??? This is trying to sell you a card game…I think?? *it sad when I have to look up what your show is about.* the story is very similar to how bakugan starts (random monsters came and people tames them). With a show like that you don’t have to explain why the kids can battle with them, it’s just childish fun (kids can do anything). when you start to aiming a show like that at an older ordinance WE WANT ANSWERS! Using the phrase “it just is” does not work when you’re trying to tell a story about how theses monsters are destroying the world.
11th Magical Warfare
T_o This show is bad that I actual write a log for episode.
I have been finding it consistently funny and thanks to the shortness of the episodes none of the jokes drag on too long. The show dose actually have its own continuity…. which is very strange because each episode is treated as its own small story (it’s a nice touch that didn’t have to be there).
o-O sorry for the post being so short but,it’s very hard to give an impression on comedy.
*deadpan for the win. ^_^*
*If you don’t like deadpan/dry humour don’t watch this anime.*
This anime revolves around the management of hell…..were you expecting something deeper than that. It’s nice to see a good deadpan comedy when we have had to swim though a swarm of school life slapstick throughout 2013. *I think the last deadpan anime I watched was “Straight Title Robot Anime”.*
I wouldn’t call this anime dark in any shape or form (it’s just the funny life of Hoozuki).
“Watch/read “Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei” if you want to know what dark humour is.*
