Summer 2013 Anime Season Wrap Up (Part 3)

Now that the Summer anime season as officially ended, I’ve been able to check off the rest of my summer series from my list.Overall, I found this season to be pretty enjoyable with most of the shows I watched being quite entertaining and well executed. I decided to leave Gatchaman Crowds, Chronicles of the Going Home Club, and Hyperdimension Neptunia out of my write up because I didn’t have many comments on the show since I didn’t follow the show that closely or didn’t understand their references and connections to the source (Neptunia). With that said, I thought that the music from the summer season was one of the best I’ve heard in a while. I added a lot of new songs to my playlist based on the OP and EDs from this season (Gatchaman, Fate Illya, Genshiken, Gin no Saji to name a few). Anyways here are my last thoughts about the summer anime season!

Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai: Megami-hen (World God Only Knows: Goddesses)

I was a bit confused how they would manage to fit the entire arc into only 12 episodes when they didn’t even encounter several key characters in the previous seasons. I was quite surprised at how well it turned out even though they apparently cut out quite a bit from the source material. Rather than being more “repetitive” like the previous seasons with capture arc after capture arc, Goddesses revisits Keima’s past conquers and manages to develop all of their characters even deeper. It not only developed the girls’ characters but Keima also underwent major development. No longer treating life like a game, he realizes that his actions have repercussions and starts to look at life differently. This was probably one of my favourites for the season. Continue reading

Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) – Post Thoughts

Shingeki no Kyojin

After watching the last episode of Attack on Titan just moments ago, I read through many discussion threads to see what other people thought of the series overall and thought I would post my own thoughts here. Since this was probably one of the most popular series in the last few years, it got quite a bit of attention, criticism, and hype from the audience. If you haven’t watched this show yet, please be warned that this post may contain spoilers. Continue reading

Summer 2013 Anime Season: What am I Watching? (Part 2)

Continuing on from my last post, I will be covering the rest of the currently airing summer anime by giving my brief and general thoughts about them so far.

Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou (Dog and Scissors)

I really have no idea what is going on with this anime but for some reason I can’t stop watching it! The opening and ending songs sung by the cast members really brings a lot of energy to the show and I can’t help but feel excited at the beginning and end of every episode. The plot overall seems pretty bland and they reuse the same gags several times every episode. However, I enjoy turning off my brain for 20 minutes a week to just watch this show for what it is and enjoy the cast of characters and silly humor. Continue reading
