First Impressions: Gifu Dodo!! Kanetsugu and Keiji- Giants Among Men

gifudodo

In a world where only the horses tower above the great, best friends Naoe Kanetsugu and Maeda Keiji, sit in the moonlight, sip their sake, and reminisce about their glory days. Gifu Dodo!! in a surprising turn of events (for me at least), ended up with less action and more meandering which I actually didn’t mind.  Continue reading

Season Impressions

So, if you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a bit lacking in the Spring Impressions department. Well, that’s going to change anytime soon, unfortunately. With AP testing and the SAT around the corner, I’ve decided that not getting into weekly shows right now will probably be for the best right now. I’ll probably start them all sometime after May 15th, but until then, re-watches and Hataraku Maou-Sama will be all that’s keeping me going.

I have done a few impressions for OrgAsg, though, so here they are (click to visit the page):

Spring 2013 Preview

Spring Preview

Ah Spring, the season of testing aplenty and the start of the warm weather that only momentarily left us here in SoCal. To be honest, spring kind of snuck up on me and I’m finding myself in a mad scramble now to play a game of catch up. First and foremost, I should apologize for how late I’m sure this is and, yes, I know that a good number of shows have already started. So, before I jump right in and give you all the preview I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for with baited breath (don’t worry, I wont’ tell anyone), I thought I’d share some changes I’ve decided to make. This season, I’ve decided to try and actually give a semblance of order to the shows here (least anticipated to most), as well as exclude some of the obvious ones I won’t be watching (sequels, super kiddy shows, etc.) in order to take up less time and give your scrolling finger a break. That said, I hope you enjoy and don’t be afraid to share what you’re thinking about/are watching (or not watching) in the comments!

First Impressions: Amnesia- Ship Away, my friends, Ship Away

Ah~ Phyllis’ favorite face

*Since Heroine doesn’t have a name and I don’t want to refer to her as Heroine, I have, after great thought, picked out a name that I think fits her quite well: Phyllis.*

I did it! I watched the episode without falling asleep! This is a true feat, worthy of a yogurt cap medal because I swear, besides me trying to figure out who I liked best, nothing happened during this episode. In terms of boredom, I wasn’t as offended as I was by Problem Children, but still. I suppose a large part of the small amount of enjoyment I took from the episode stems almost completely from having read this really informative and fun post regarding the various routes in the otome game. Thanks to the article, I went in already have a basic knowledge of where the story could go and of what might potentially happen during the course of series depending on who she picks. This really helped me out in terms of trying to figure out which guy the show was likely to favor more in terms of future route. Continue reading
