Monster Musume because I do need an ecchi each season too keep me occupied.

Kuusen Madoushi because, yes, generic battle action things are my favorites.

Gakkou Gurashi because HOLY SHIT, YES, MOE. Game of Laplace isn’t planned, so I’m going to at least give it a go.

SYMPHOGEAR IS MY JAM. I’M HAPPY I GOT MORE.

Rokka no Yuusha looks beautiful and sounds great. Why not?

Shimoneta only because the entire shows looks like it’s going to be ironic. Yes.

I’ll post my anime of the season stuff soon.

Murdered all my hype for: Dear lord, Hibike! Euphonium. Watch episode 10 and see what I mean.
Anime I don’t know where it can possibly go: Etotama. Seriously…WATCH EPISODE 10. Mikagura School Suite since it’s past the source material I know now.
Anime that will only continue to be predictable: Hibike! Euphonium. Danmachi, Owari no Seraph since I read the manga, Plastic Memories. It has too easy a plot.
Most fanservice: Yamada-kun in the Seven Witches.
Anime that will probably get another season: Probably Hibike! Euphonium to adapt the other novels. Maybe Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, too.
Anime that will probably never be heard from again after this: Houkago no Pleiades, Re-Kan, Etotama, Mikagura School Suite as well unless they make ovas of the other songs they didn’t adapt.

My anime of the season so far: If it’s any consolation, there’s two. Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches along with Hibike! Euphonium.

I will post this again in two weeks when everything ends.

“Anime are all the same.”

Oh my god, don’t even try that. Let me explain why. Yes, there is a term for this “generic.” Every anime is different. All of them, and I get a little sad when people say “anime’s all the same lately. It’s not fun anymore.” If you really think that, you’d have to really read through descriptions. Just because an anime came from an obscure, probably unpopular light novel about a school battle action, doesn’t mean it’s “the same thing over and over again.” Okay, look at the anime Seirei Tsukai no Blade Dance and then go look at Absolute Duo.

People argue they’re the same thing. Huh? What? Just because they both take place in school and deal with people and their weapons does not mean they’re the same thing. =\ Okay? It’s annoying, and I liked both these titles. Especially the former, because it was a good ecchi.

I literally just disagree. Generic just means it follows the same simple formula. Since when did it mean… “everything is copy and paste! Just change the names of the characters and plot a bit, and you’re good to go!” No. All anime can be different if you give it a try.

Yes, giving it a try. I just happen to be a fan of ecchi harem school battle action anime. They’re fun for me, and then people mock me and say “lol, are you trolling?”

Nope. Am I…not allowed to like school battle action ecchi harems? It helps me be okay with liking girs; my own physical gender.

Regardless. Everything can be different. Unique, maybe not, but not all anime are “all the same.” Sure, all visual novels follow the same basic plot, but if you can make them out to be something different. I stopped saying “anime is all the same” because look, it’s not true. And I’m in the MINORITY WHEN I SAY THAT. Ugh.

There’s something that annoys me.

And that’s “assigning” a sexuality to a character. It doesn’t matter at the end of the day. Most anime characters are fourteen or younger. It doesn’t matter if they’re gay, straight, bisexual, transsexual, asexual, pansexual, robotsexual…you get the point. It’s usually not relevant to the story. At the end of the day, I don’t care if Mami Tomoe was asexual or a lesbian. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. I watch anime to enjoy it…not to debate the sexuality of the characters I like. Unless it’s literally the exploration and focus of the show, I honestly can’t say I care. I’m not the least bit disappointed when I find out a character is straight because I literally just don’t care.

I do make jokes that Ryu Yamada is gay for Miyamura, but I literally don’t mean it. I don’t care. I already know what happens since I accidentally cheated.

The point is that it doesn’t matter. A character can like what they want. Their own gender or the opposite. In only really matters in romance anime, tbh. Yuri and yaoi, we just know that the characters are gay because that’s the market. And in straight romance, the characters are straight. But again, I really don’t care. I watch anime to enjoy it.

Yes, I do say “GAY” because I’m pretty uncomfortable with straight romance. And I don’t really mind yuri undertones, either, but I just can’t stand all this sexuality debates for little girls and little boys. I know I called Binan Kouku “gay magical boy show” because I felt like it, but I never sat and debated who in the show was whatever sexuality they were.

Yes, I ship characters, too. But shipping is just what everyone does. Ships aren’t always canon, and I have my personal otps, but that doesn’t mean I think my otps are going to happen. They’re just for fun. My opinions are no less meaningful than another’s. At the end of the day, I’m just another weeb who likes anime.

Unless it’s literally confirmed in the show what their sexuality is, then it really just doesn’t matter.

I’ve come out as lesbian myself, and I don’t flaunt it, but recently I’ve been identifying as genderless, but I still like girls. But this has nothing to do with this post. I’m going through a lot of identity issues right now, but it’s not like I don’t know how to sort myself out.

I feel like the “insert character here is gay!” “Insert character here is bi1” Will literally always be an argument. I guess I have no right to complain, but it’s just a pet peeve of mine. Okay. I’m sorry. I’ll stop now. I’m almost into tl;dr rant mode. …I guess I saw this day coming at this point, but who can blame me? I’m just a person on the internet trying to reach out to people about the anime I like.

Anyway, that’s pretty much it. I’ll go.
