So, It’s Spring 2015! [Updated]

Let’s get this show on the road…

Uta no Prince-sama Revolutions Honestly, I had no idea I missed bishonen idols so much. They add so much to my life…which is why I was super disappointed by the CG dancing in the end theme 😡 But the first episode was already super ridiculous and I have to admit, in my mind I heard Ren Jinguji ask, “Are you ready?” right before I pressed “play.” I insist on at least one mindless, wonderful reverse-harem per season so now I’m happy.

Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Well, I dunno if it is or not, but Is It Wrong to Get My Hopes Up Then Make a Boring First Episode? For some reason I had really looked forward to this series and I barely made it through the first episode. About five minutes in, all I could think was, “I want to watch new “Gintama” instead.” I do think it will get better…I hope…Unlike:

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma This one is my own fault. I’d started reading the manga and ultimately dropped it. So I don’t know why I thought I might like the anime but…I don’t. Maybe because I work in a restaurant I’m tired of food and food-anime…though I still love the hell out of “Toriko” and read its new chapter every week. Maybe I’m just biased toward muscular men eating stupid things like “Mellow Cola” instead of squirming boobalicious women having foodgasms over overly-descriptive trying-to-sound-realistic-but-still-totally-wouldn’t-work-in-real-life dishes? I don’t know! Yes, I love muscles more than boobs! But I think it’s largely the over-explanation…which I’m doing right now about my dislike of this show. :/ Unfortunately, it was not the new season of “Gintama.”

Seraph of the End Apparently I never learn because this was another manga that I dropped yet…decided to try watching the anime. Honestly, the first episode isn’t bad…just like the first chapter of the manga wasn’t bad. But, unfortunately, it was no “Gintama.”

Plastic Memories Okay, so my first thought was, “Totally not ‘Gintama,'” but by the end of the first episode, I was pleasantly surprised. I mean, no, it’s still not “Gintama” or even close, but I will continue watching. Looks like it could be painful and heart-wrenching yet filled with toilet humor so might as well stick with it.

The Heroic Legend of Arslan I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pick this one up since I’m reading the manga; I thought it might be overkill. But because of my love of Daryun Hiromu Arakawa, I decided to give it a try. This first episode actually really sucked me in and convinced me that Daryun this show is a keeper.

Kuroko’s Basketball OMG TEIKO ARC! KYAHHHHHHH!!! Okay, so this isn’t a new title for Spring but I don’t care I have to gush about how excited I am! Young, sweet, fresh-faced Aomine being so cute and pure and nice and GAHHHHH I just want to puke love and sparkles and tears all over the screen. Everyone is so cute and mostly innocent and smiley and fist-bumpy and full of hope and everything hasn’t gone to shit yet and everyone turned to assholes and it’s all so adorable and great! I love it so much I can’t breathe. I LOVE KUROKO’S BASKETBALL.

GINTAMA DO I REALLY NEED TO SAY ANYTHING?! I AM SO HAPPY I COULD JUST EXPLODE INTO A HUGE CLOUD OF SPARKLES AND ANPAN. The day this episode aired I got up a half hour early just so I could watch it before work. TOTALLY WORTH IT. Honestly, I expected to see just a still image of the front of the building for 20 minutes while the characters talked so I was pretty excited we actually got a real episode for the launch. Words cannot describe how elated I am to see this show again.

I did watch a few other things too:

Punch Line I thought this was great and look forward to more. You can’t beat panties, nosebleeds, and Strange Juice.

My Love Story!! For the love of all that’s holy, watch this. I’ve been reading the manga and this was one of my most-anticipated Spring 2015 titles. It’s wonderfully hilarious. My only complaint is I wanted MORE.
