“Can you meet me halfway, right at the borderline
Is where I’m gonna wait, for you
I’ll be looking out, night n’ day…”
Oh, excuse me! I’m just over here singing to myself as usual. I sometimes take key words from my conversations and figure out a song that matches and then I just start singing it. I actually do this quite often in real life. Keeps me entertained for the most part XD
Happy Monday my pandas! I can’t believe fall anime season is half way over. It seems like these weeks are just flying by…probably because we are getting to the end of the year. I see a lot of my fellow anime bloggers giving their first impressions of fall season and I can’t help but want to add some input of my own. I really commend you guys who take each episode and break it down bit by bit. I wish I had the time to do that! I’m busy working a full time job and going to school that any energy I have left usually goes towards eating and sleeping. This is usually the part where I pray that I turn into a cat someday =^.^= *smew smew* Man oh man! That would be the life! Sunbathing, long naps, and someone else to feed me. Sign me up pwease!
Back to the topic at hand…I ended up dropping a few shows this season which doesn’t happen that often for me. These shows were Dies Irae, Ousama Game: The Animation, URAHARA, and Evil or Live. URAHARA was dropped after the first episode because it was all over the place but I gave the others a few more episodes to impress me. Each one failed to keep my attention. I felt like I was bored and kinda dreaded when each new episode arrived. I was debating if I really wanted to continue on with these shows and after a few episodes I decided that I didn’t. I mainly dropped Ousama Game: The Animation because I read spoilers for what was causing all the deaths in the series and thought it was meh. Kinda turned out to be like Mayoiga if you ask me…but with those four shows dropped I ended up picking up Garo: Vanishing Line. This show turned out to be much more fun then the others!
My top picks for this season shouldn’t come as a surprise to you all (in terms of new series). My personal favorites include Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau (Children of the Whales), Houseki no Kuni (Land of the Lustrous), Inuyashiki, Mahoutsukai no Yome (The Ancient Magus Bride), and Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World. Of course I am also enjoying Blend S, Juuni Taisen, Net-juu no Susume, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, Konohana Kitan and Two Car. And the automatic give in’s for this season (because they are second seasons) are Kekkai Sensen and Beyond, Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara, 3-gatsu no Lion. I am still undecided how I feel about Black Clover. Some aspects of the show are really good and other times I am just annoyed as fuck with Asta. I don’t know if I will stick with it especially since it is going to be 50 episodes or so. I may give up on it after awhile. We will see!
Leftover anime from summer season includes Ballroom e Youkoso (which the comedy aspects of this anime is EVERYTHING!!! I haven’t laughed this hard at an anime in a long while) and Shoukoku no Altair. Pretty sure Shoukoku no Altair is the most underrated anime this year because people have compared it to Arslan Senki (The Heroic Legend of Arslan) but Shoukoku no Altair is waaayyy better! It does take a few episodes to really get going but once you get into it HOT DAMN! Way better than I could have imagined. My anime shorts for this season include Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara (Love is Like a Cocktail) and Omiai Aite wa Oshiego, Tsuyoki na, Mondaiji (My Marriage Partner is my Student, A Cocky Troublemaker). Viewer discretion advised on Omiai Aite wa Oshiego, Tsuyoki na, Mondaiji (My Marriage Partner is my Student, A Cocky Troublemaker) 😉
My favorite opening song goes to Inuyashiki’s My Hero by Man with a Mission. I was trying to find the actual OP for the anime but instead we get the music video for My Hero. You can check out that song here:
My other two favorite openings this season are Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau’s Sono Saki e by RIRIKO and Net-juu no Susume’s Saturday Night Question by Megumi Nakajima. You can also check those out down below:
That’s all I have for you guys right about now. I will of course give my final thoughts once fall season ends. I also finally got to watch Genocidal Organ the last film in the Project Itoh series. I will be doing a film review of it sometime this week so keep an eye out for that! So far how are you guys liking fall season? Any stand out shows you really like? Any shows you dropped?
