Half-Assed Fall Roundup

Excuses excuses but due to, well, “life”…I didn’t keep up on the Fall Season as much as I wanted. So my favorites out of the season are pretty fluffy…

Gugure! Kokkuri-san is probably my favorite show of the Fall Season. It’s the show I consistently looked forward to the most.

Donten ni Warau was up there too. It actually surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. I finished the manga *after* I finished the anime and was pleasantly surprised the anime followed the manga closely and that I didn’t get “Toriko”-ed, so to speak.

DENKI GAI was ridiculous but I laughed out loud every episode. I think it was a nice follow-up to “Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun” and “The Comic Artist and His Assistants” before that. I love niche shows full of inside jokes and weirdness relating to the industry. Thanks to this show I now randomly yell, “We are all ero-book lovers!”

This season we also had a couple short-episode shows that I really liked…

Orenchi no Furo Jijo I have an unnatural fondness for bathtubs so maybe that’s why I had an unnatural fondness for this show. I was excited to see that the manga is getting licensed in English.

I Can’t Understand What My Husband is Saying This was a really cute show and I was happy to read that it’ll be getting another season down the line.

Okay, that’s my hasty review of the Fall Season! Now on to Winter Winter Winter! …Is it time for “Kuroko’s Basketball” season 3 yet?

Fall 2014 First Impressions

**UPDATED 10/7**

Akatsuki no Yona (Episode 1): So glad to see this animated. So glad to see Hak (hehe). Though I have to admit, I actually had to *stop* reading the manga and go watch “Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood” a couple months ago because I kept reading Hak’s lines with Roy Mustang’s English voice in my head. But don’t let the array of beautiful dudes fool you; “Yona” is about action, betrayal, growth, and struggle so there’s something for everyone.

The links should take you to whatever service I’m using to watch, in case you want to watch too. Now, let’s crack open Fall 2014!

Gugure! Kokkuri-San (Episode 1): Ever since I saw the character previews on Crunchyroll News, I knew I *had* to watch this show. I’m a sucker for fox ears and a sucker for Daisuke Ono, so Daisuke Ono’s voice with fox ears had to be an unbeatable combination. About halfway through, I thought, “I like it, but it’s not quite as good as I thought…” but by the end of the first episode I’d changed to, “Nope, this is show is just as amazing as I thought it would be!” and then the ending theme escalated it to, “OMG WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!”

I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying (Episode 1): I was already laughing by the twenty-second mark. The most laugh-filled three and a half minutes of my life? Okay, maybe not *quite* but still really promising.

DENKI-GAI (Episode 1): Felt like “Wagnaria!!” + “Genshiken” + “The Comic Artist & His Assistants” = freakin’ great.

Terraformars (Episodes 1-2): I’ve read the first volume of the manga and expected the anime to get off to a more exciting start. I was a bit disappointed.

Log Horizon (Season 2, Episode 1): As you may or may not recall, I was kind of bored with “Log Horizon” by the end of season one. I feel like this first episode gets back to what made the first season so interesting; I’m glad it’s back.

World Trigger (Episode 1): As a fan of the manga I was really excited about this show. It’s off to a good start, I think.

The Fruit of Grisaia (Episode 1): Halfway through I’m still wondering, “Why am I watching this?” Though I assumed so, I was glad to learn it’s based on a visual novel because several shots made me wonder, “Am I watching anime or playing a dating sim?” Though that whole thing about the curse of being tsundere might have sold me on this show, at least for a bit longer.

Wolf Girl and Black Prince (Episode 1): I’ve been looking forward to this one and have read some of the manga. Even knowing what to expect I laughed out loud several times.

Rage of Bahamut (Episode 1): Horses across rooftops, sure, why not. And then somehow the Lady Amalthea fell from the sky–oops, wrong show 😉 Anyway, “Rage of Bahamut” has more of a “movie” feel to it which I really liked; it feels more “substantial” (whether it really is substantial or not remains to be seen, I guess). Or maybe that’s just a Geneon quality.

Orenchi no Furo Jijo (Episode 1): HAHAHAHA I wish this show was longer than 4 minutes. This could be the best thing ever! Well, for people who like dudes and bathtubs, anyway.

When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace (Episode 1): Despite the super generic character designs I was intrigued by the premise…and it was totally worth it. I laughed til I cried.

Laughing Under the Clouds/Donten ni Warau (Episode 1): After reading some of the manga I was really looking forward to seeing this animated. It actually exceeded my expectations; I can’t wait for more.

Yowapeda (Season 2, Episode 1): YOWAPEDA’S BACK! *flail around excitedly* Yes, the opening theme gave me goosebumps. So excited to see Yowapeda again!

As you can see, I’ve just included impressions rather than also including summaries; I figure most of you know what these shows are about and are watching them too..? I didn’t want to just repeat what everyone knows, unless summaries would be helpful?
