The One Spring Anime I Didn’t Recommend [but should have]

So a few months ago, I posted about how there wasn’t a whole lot of anime that I was excited to watch for the Spring season. I recommended two, and moved along.

I’m here to tell you, as spring anime season comes to an end, that I have led you astray, my friends.

When I was looking through the list of anime back then, I saw an anime called Seraph of the End, and was interested in the art style, but then read the synopsis:

One day, a mysterious virus appeared on Earth which killed every infected human over the age of 13. At the same time, vampires emerged from the world’s dark recesses and enslaved mankind. Enter Hyakuya Yuuichirou, a young boy, who along with the rest of the children from his orphanage, are treated as livestock by the vampires. Even in captivity, Yuuichirou dreams big. He dreams of killing vampires. He dreams of killing them all.

So you see, I read this and I thought. Eh. Kids? I don’t like kids. Vampires are okay but with kids? Pfff. Post-apocalyptic? Ehh. Over it. I guess this is part of the problem with my tendency to just pick animes based on first impressions, and not look into anything [like the manga] before making decisions.

I have learned my lesson, everyone.

Unfinished [Anime] Business

We all have our favorite anime – the ones we will perpetually always tell friends they just have to watch with a crazy look in our eyes as we grip their shoulders tight [btw you should watch FMA: Brotherhood no srsly go watch it WATCH IT NOW]. But what about the ones that don’t make the cut? What about these anime turns us away before even finishing one season? Or stopping in the middle of one?

I’m generally not a very picky person when it comes to being entertained, but there have been some anime in my life that I have stopped watching, and I decided to go through and figure out what it was about some of these that got me to stop.

Please note that I am not saying these anime are bad. I’m simply stating what I, personally, didn’t enjoy about them. thx <3

Spring Is Here! New Anime Blossoms!

 

Spring is here, which means TONS more anime has popped up to distract us. If you are like me, you are still catching up on summer and fall anime, because there aren’t enough hours in the day, but that’s okay! We are in this together. \o\

Winter 2014 Anime Watch List

winter 2014

The winter anime season has already kicked off! I have gone through the lists and scoured through my wish list – I’ve shortened it some because I had way too many to watch in the fall, and actually ended up cutting some out because I had been on the fence about watching them anyways, and ended up disliking them quickly. This time I have only selected the ones that I legit am excited about. As a reminder, I am going into these shows a little blind, based on just what I see in the trailer and a wiki blurb.

Why Fullmetal Alchemist Is One of the Most Important Things That Happened To Me

Today is October 3rd. If you haven’t watched Full Metal Alchemist, that might not make sense to you. But if you have, this is a day remembered by fans. It is the day that Ed and Al, determined to restore their lives back to normal, burned down their home. I wanted to call out this day not only because it’s a part of the story, but also to take a moment to reflect on how awesome my life is because of FMA.

My Anime Line Up for Fall

Collage

The summer of anime is almost over! It was really a good one, too [you can check out my review of Free! Iwatobi Swim Club]. I’m caught on on Shingeki no Kyojin [Attack on Titan], and so now I am both crying and laughing each week with the two animes.

But I digress, because now I am excited to talk about which anime I will be wasting hours on this coming fall.

The biggest theme I am seeing here is female focused anime, which will be a nice break I suppose from all the male-dominated stuff I have been watching as of late. However, I still haven’t seen anything that has really got me super excited at a first glance, so it will be interesting to see which anime I am still watching at the end of the season.

Which anime are you looking forward to this fall? Let me know! Maybe it’s something else I should be checking out.

Why Free! Is Pretty Much The Best Anime This Summer**

FREE anime1

Okay so the title is a bit of a hyperbole.

But hear me out.

I enjoy anime. And I enjoy pretty boys. You would think that stories that capitalized on the fact that I am not the only one who enjoys both of these things would be more abundant, but alas.

Then this summer, something changed. My tumblr became this bright beautiful place of 5 beautiful men, swimming. And being adorable, and angsty, and just all around squee worthy.

I might sound crazy right now. That’s fine. I’m going to continue to revel in this moment.

Free! Iwatobi Swim Club is what happened this summer. It’s only 8 episodes in, and it’s like a tsunami of awesome. Is that okay to say?
