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 entire anime was painfully meh from start to finish.
The show seems to believe that if you get a lots music students together and make them bicker about there rank in the pecking order that will make for a good story. With each complaint about rank I would say this to myself: “why are there no teachers at this school?”
The animation is so dull, bland, non-extant, stiff and worst of all cheap. It feels like is entire show was created with absolutely no love or passion. You could even say this was thrown together at the last second in order to release something during the spring season.
There is very little reason for me to return to a musical anime that doesn’t even take the time to compose some new songs!
Why is the main character so bland?!
*The girls in diabolik lovers and amnesia had more personality.*
Nothing! She dose absolutely nothing! You could completely remove her from the story and nothing would be affected.
One of my biggest problems with this anime is that we don’t get to see these sexy guys interacting romantically with are lead female. You might be saying: “but it’s not about the guys, it’s about the magic of music.” If that’s the case why have they given us a lead character’s that has clearly been designed so that you (the existed female) can self-insert yourself into the story?
The animation problem had not improved (how can you call still images with mouth flaps animation).
I don’t quite understand how magic works in this anime? Dose the magic teleport them to a blissful place or is it just a metaphor for the grace and love that they are putting into each note? I ask this because in one scene the characters are reacting as if the imagery is physical and in another scene they pull crowds of people into their fantasy world.
*The anime could be trying to say that all the people in that room were sharing in there magic moment.* If it’s just meant to be taken as a metaphor why introduce the concept of magic in the first place? Answer: so they can loosely connect it to La Corda d’Oro ~primo passo~ (they show the statue of Lili constantly).
Let’s play a game of spot the animation.
This anime is really cheap! I spent so long looking at still images that I actual was more interests in counting how long they stayed over the actual dialog (there wasn’t much of that anyway).
For a musical anime you need smooth animation in order to convey the arm movement on the musical instruments. In this anime they look like there attacking there instruments with very jumpy arm movements that doesn’t always match up with the song there playing.
How do you mess up mouth flaps! No one takes a breath mid-sentence (o-o it will continue to move without any sound) and sometimes they will keep the mouth moving until the next scene comes.
*How lazy are these animators?*
Can I really expect anything less from the team that brought us amnesia.
Is it just me or is it very creepy that the girls in this academy address the boys as “sama”. O_O it just translates in my head as “I love you master” it creeps me out.
This show is just a cheaply made female fetish anime.
p.s. no one is watching this for the story.
p.s.s watch Uta no Prince Sama if you just want some eye candy.
