Winter 2014-15

(...since, well, it covers both years.)

Currently listening to: Shingeki no Kyojin OST 
(i.e. seriously good stuff)

So, this time around I'm actually watching weekly shows, after an eternity of watching only already-completed stuff. But as usual, let's get down to business already; this is what I've currently watched, though do keep in mind that I've only seen the first episode.

Kantai Collection (a.k.a. KanColle)
Simply... no. Video-wise is probably the best show of the season, too bad even that isn't enough to give me the necessary motivation to get through it. Maybe who's familiar with the game will enjoy it more.

Absolute Duo
This is the only series I've watched up to episode 2. First one made me almost believe it could be ever-so-slightly better than average ecchi/fantasy anime, but episode 2 promptly made me change my mind. I guess I'll give it another chance before dropping it though.

Oh hey, she tripped over him.

I sure wasn't expecting such a huge cliffhanger.

Shinmai Maou no Testament
This was kinda a pleasant surprise, because the first 5 minutes made me want to kill myself, but then it got better. I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out bad afterwards though (see AD above).

This is the moment where the show turned from "meh~" to "not so bad".

Death Parade
Now, a few people know I was really looking forward to this. And although I got exactly what I expected - i.e. something very similar to the already-available OVA - I didn't mind it at all. In fact, I actually liked the touch of feelings and the message the director wanted to pass on.

I believe the real plot-twist of the show is the OP.
Oh, and unlike everybody else - and I mean everybody - I ain't worried about "future episodes being more of the same", because it's pretty clear that there are characters that have yet to appear, plus the series could say a lot of things even using the same format for every single episode.

No, she's not being punched, it's just good ol' MadHouse.
Overall, I'd say the show is pretty sick. If that's a good thing or not, it probably depends on you.

Junketsu no Maria
At first I actually had no intention to watch this, but it's set in Medieval times and it's about virgin witches, so how could I resist?

Yes, this means exactly what you're thinking.
Turns out I did the right thing - at least jugding from the first ep - as the show seems pretty funny and definitely not your average animu.

Koufuku Graffiti
All I read about this show (even before it aired) was "it's about food porn". Again, I couldn't simply ignore this.
And damn, were they right.
So yeah, it's just a story of a girl who has an orgasm whenever she eats something good and how can you blame her. And it's Shaft. So I'm fairly confident this will be at least decent.

Assassination Classroom (a.k.a. AssClass)
This was another one I was kinda looking forward to. It's probably one of the weirdest out of all the shows I'm mentioning, but I really don't mind. Check out the synopsis - or better yet, the first episode - to understand why's that.

One thing I didn't quite get was why they made
the main character like that, and called him Nagisa too.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata
Finally, the real surprise. I don't even know why I checked this one out, but the first 8 minutes of the show were enough to make me fall in love with its sense of humor. As of now, I don't know if I should watch it every week or just wait for the BDs...
One thing I sure wouldn't enjoy is encoding this.

Okay, that was the last one.
Wow, I didn't realise I watched so many shows. Though I suppose that means this season is not bad at all, so yay.

New post about good stuff soon™.
