RATING

7/10


TL;DR

picked up, dropped, waited, re-picked up, finished, enjoyed.


CONCLUSION

Overall, a pretty clean-reading manga from start to finish. 4-koma styled manga that does well in delivering reading enjoyment in quick and efficient jabs. If you’re looking for a decent comedy-based manga with spurts of drama and romance, I’d recommend picking this up for a decent little read. Obviously art is gonna be mediocre (2008 origins) but it does get slightly better towards the end releases.

Special A

http://myanimelist.net/anime/3470/Special_A

  • +1 to dropped shows
  • another case of “do you even human?” a la [this show] in terms of character designs (sighs)
  • it’s a rom-com but the comedy part was really forced and came off cheesy and dry as fuck
  • the main focus of the show was obviously the characters but they were all forgettable
  • the appeal of rom-coms is how realistic and genuine they feel; the outrageous and downright stupid moments in this show ruined all of that

Persona: Trinity Soul

http://myanimelist.net/anime/3366/Persona:_Trinity_Soul

  • +1 to dropped shows
  • I already didn’t like this show when I realized it didn’t have to do with the Persona games I played
  • the details and building up of the story was okay albeit a bit messy
  • it’s nothing more than your typical police(?)/investigation action thriller spliced with Persona elements like, the Personas themselves
  • the artwork and animation was pretty easy on the eyes at least (+1 Aniplex)

Kimi ga Aruji de Shitsuji ga Ore de

http://myanimelist.net/anime/3229/Kimi_ga_Aruji_de_Shitsuji_ga_Ore_de

  • shares an “alternative setting” (certain character cameos, backstory, etc) with [Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinisai]
  • very good harem show
  • Mihato = best onee-san
  • obviously outdated art but it didn’t bother me when I watched it
  • very comedic and lighthearted show
  • ending plot point was melodramatic, stupid, pointless

True Tears

http://myanimelist.net/anime/2129/True_Tears

  • an absolute tear-jerker of a show
  • stop playing with my emotions, bro
  • bittersweet ending
  • serious case of feels trip somewhere along the way
  • sometimes you wanna just slap the bejesus out of some of these characters; +1 for realism
  • can be a bit melodramatic at times
  • note to self: hunt down audio drama cd translations

Toradora!

http://myanimelist.net/anime/4224/Toradora!

  • another well known and popular title among rom-com anime; rom-com done right, feels good bro
  • supposed feels trip somewhere along the line but I don’t recall / didn’t chop much onions at that time
  • ah, good ol’ Taiga– perhaps the queen of tsunderes?
  • a wonderfully crafted work of art from start to finish
  • I might give this a quick re-watch one of these days

To LOVE-Ru

http://myanimelist.net/anime/3455/To_LOVE-Ru

  • fucking god tier among comedic ecchi school harems, god-fucking-tier
  • male lead Rito = king of accidental tit grab and vaginal faceplants
  • Momo (best girl in this epic ass harem ensemble) = carries season 03 as a pseudo-protagonist
  • quite possible the strongest harem in all of anime
  • season 01 = decent, but quite a bit of filler in comparison to the manga
  • season 02 = refreshing change of pace, art and animation is improved, episodes are divided into arcs like the manga
  • season 03 = more serious than its predecessors but still retaining the core aspects of the show that we all know and love
  • season 04 = confirmed for Q2 2015 (hype! as fuckkk)

Sekirei

http://myanimelist.net/anime/4063/Sekirei

  • cute girls doing… violent things?
  • artwork and animation were crisp, fluid, and aesthetic (+1 Aniplex)
  • comedic ecchi with a good amount of action
  • male lead has a great fucking harem
  • not going to declare a best girl, this show is too good for that (snorts)
  • season 02 and the OVAs also get a well-deserved headnod

Rosario to Vampire

http://myanimelist.net/anime/2993/Rosario_to_Vampire

  • this show has so much shit to point out (nothing good either)
  • a fucking linear episode format– seriously, is this a western animation? wtf bruh
  • vampire shows are never good
  • ecchi + fan service solely because, fuck you
  • male protagonist = beta as fuck but still natural chick magnet male harem lead #2619
  • his harem members = notbad.jpeg
  • season 01 = bad but do-able if you have the endurance
  • season 02 = worst than season 01; (sighs)
  • I heard the manga was TONS better, so I’ll be looking forward to that someday

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu

http://myanimelist.net/anime/3467/Nogizaka_Haruka_no_Himitsu

  • much potential but failed, crashed, and burned (almost)
  • male lead = ultimate yes man, yes, man
  • female lead = made it cool for females to be otakus
  • season 01 = (ノ^_^)ノ┻━┻ ┬─┬ ノ( ^_^ノ)
  • season 02 = ┬─┬ ノ( ゜-゜ノ)
  • season 03 (composed of 4 OVAs) = (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
