[HorribleSubs] Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.51_[2016.01.13_18.25.20]

Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm

  • So…much….moe
  • So….little…time
  • Surprisingly decent art and design
  • I already have a crush on the teacher ❤
  • …harem?
  • It’s like some sort of SOL + rom-com + sci-fi type of concoction
  • Okay, now there’s some competitive sports element to it now(thefuck?)
  • So far, a pointless eye-candy show but the sports thingy… hmmm

[HorribleSubs] Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.59_[2016.01.13_18.28.58].png

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

  • I gotta admit, not much substance found in the winter 2016 lineup but damn these shows sure are pretty
  • Well okay, this is some humor I haven’t seen in a while
  • This is like, some ridiculous rendition of [ SAO ] and or [ DanMachi ]; I dig it
  • Characters are good so far; MC isn’t a annoying piece of shit
  • This might be the very first “MMO-like show” to lure me into the genre

Termainé!

The selection process

[HorribleSubs] Ooyasan wa Shishunki! - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.08_[2016.01.11_17.59.09].png

Ooyasan wa Shishunki!

  • TV short very short
  • Err, not much of anything to pass critique on
  • Empty, just like my soul
  • Not a single solid-hitting joke at all? That’s a paddlin’

[HorribleSubs] Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.23_[2016.01.11_18.03.55].png

Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut

  • Magic/Fantasy thingy– “I guess I can manage…”
  • Stereotypical ecchi/harem elements?– “Well, this is a bonus…”
  • Male lead is an annoying piece of voiced shit so far; oh my god, no wonder why … [ female voice actress ]
  • Ah, I see the harem already… and it’s only been (looks at invisible watch on wrist) 7 minutes
  • Mecha…? “Oh, fuck off…”
  • Hey, that’s some decent animation right there
  • Is this show trying to squeeze all the cliche anime elements in the world into its opening episode?
  • There’s literally only two(2) things that I’m interested in so far but after finding out, I’ll probably drop this shit

[HorribleSubs] Sekkou Boys - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.18_[2016.01.09_10.59.42].png
Sekkou Boys

  • TV short
  • MC is crazy fucking random spaz
  • While the idea of using those sculptures as main focuses are new, I don’t like it and I don’t appreciate the fucking file->import designs

[HorribleSubs] Oshiete! Galko-chan - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.13_[2016.01.09_11.11.55].pngOshiete! Galko-chan

  • TV short
  • Artwork is so-so but forgivable
  • Female lead is a cute lil’ thang
  • 4-Koma style scenes
  • Jokes + gag humor
  • Female lead makes it pretty watchable, just barely though

[DeadFish] Dagashi Kashi - 01 [720p][AAC].mp4_snapshot_08.20_[2016.01.09_11.21.00].png
Dagashi Kashi

  • The fucking eyes in this show… @_@
  • Great hitting humor that constantly jabs at you
  • Characters introduced so far were fun in their own right
  • This is gonna be a great little show, plus it’s based on candy!
  • No gripes so far

[HorribleSubs] Koukaku no Pandora - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.58_[2016.01.09_11.32.00].png
Koukaku no Pandora

  • Moe meets mecha/action/sci-fi…?
  • Idea is jokes but full length episodes? GTFO
  • Has a low-budget feel to it despite the overall setting

[HorribleSubs] Divine Gate - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.13_[2016.01.09_12.44.40]
Divine Gate

  • Action show + sci-fi meets supernatural powers?
  • Hurray for typical character designs in a superpower show
  • Generic superpower show of this season
  • Lots of characters holy shit -> LINK

[BudLightSubs] Luck and Logic - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.59_[2016.01.09_13.02.33].png
Luck and Logic

  • SurprisedLook.jpeg; artwork is not bad
  • So many story elements and genres… what the hell is this
  • Oh, another fantasy/superpower show huh?
  • Okay, so this is mahou shoujo + fantasy + supernatural + god/myth + … comedy?!
  • Has that [Gatchaman Crowds] sort of feel
  • I like the male lead and other characters so far despite harem incoming

Keep, keep, keep

Initial thoughts & impressions

[HorribleSubs] Prince of Stride - Alternative - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.15_[2016.01.08_06.12.36].png

Prince of Stride: Alternative

  • Is this the first ever parkour-themed anime in like, forever?
  • School, sports, comedy; basically your Haikyuu!!and or Free! of this season; shit I never watched those shows but just looking at the poster/characters; they have similar styles
  • I don’t really care for these types of show so no love lost

[HorribleSubs] Musaigen no Phantom World - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.52_[2016.01.08_06.01.22].png

Musaigen no Phantom World

  • KyoAni~~~~~~~~
  • Seems like this is easily going to be one of the top-tier/eye candy/mainstream shows of the season
  • As soon as this girl appeared and spoke, I knew immediately this show was a keeper; Hayami, Saori ❤

[fishmap] Sushi Police - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.25_[2016.01.08_05.04.10]

Sushi Police

  • Suppose to be 3D or whatever… I think?
  • TV short
  • Not a food show
  • Little quirky humor, I suppose?
  • Not sure what it has to do with sushi yet

[HorribleSubs] Haruchika - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.10_[2016.01.08_05.55.41].png

HaruChika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru

  • Lot of purple hair chicks lately eh?
  • Those eyes…
  • Not a fan of music shows honestly…
  • I’m curious about the mystery tag that MAL has listed for this show

[HorribleSubs] Norn9 - Norn+Nonet - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.23_[2016.01.08_05.48.50].png

Norn9: Norn+Nonet


[HorribleSubs] Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.25_[2016.01.08_05.29.51].png

Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu

  • Holy shit, what year is this? We’re in 2016 right?
  • Outdated feel and presentation
  • Oh my god, there’s a redhead in this stupid ass show! Diamond in the rough much? Don’t tempt me…
  • Uh, seems like a typical school + romance + drama with hints of comedy?
  • The ONLY thing that caught my eye is the heroine of the show- she has this odd feel to her; for some reason reminds me a toned-down version of Senjougahara and others over at MAL feels she’s similar to Yukino

[HorribleSubs] Boku Dake ga Inai Machi - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.07_[2016.01.08_05.36.59]

Boku Dake ga Inai Machi

  • Nice first impression episode
  • Supernatural / Suspense-thriller type of feel so far
  • Art is mediocre, NBD as I suppose the “plot” will make up for it
  • Well, fuck…
  • I will keep an eye on this despite the dark themes

[HorribleSubs] Ojisan to Marshmallow - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_01.59_[2016.01.08_05.10.23].png

Ojisan to Marshmallow

  • TV short
  • Now that, that was a fun little show
  • Show will be relying heavily on the comedic character interactions (mainly from the two[2] leads though)
  • Actually looking forward to more episodes

Will keep tabs on, for now

• Prince of Stride: Alternative
• Musaigen no Phantom World
• Sushi Police
• HaruChika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru
• Norn9: Norn+Nonet
• Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu
• Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
• Ojisan to Marshmallow
