5/6ths Anime of the Season Checkup

MY FAVORITE this season: Mikagura School Suite, Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches, Houkago no Pleiades, Re-Kan! Etotama, Hibike! Euphonium, Owari no Seraph.

MY TIME-KILLERS: Danmachi, Plastic Memories.

My LEAST favorite this season: Danmachi. It’s gotten boring. =\
Craziest: Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches, Etotama.
Silliest/Most Ridiculous: Etotama still.
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.
Anime that might be a split-cour in disguise: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches.
Most unpredictable: Etotama seriously…episode 10.
Best OP: Re-Kan!, Mikagura School Suite.
Worst: Probably Plastic Memories. It’s too sad.
Cutest: Houkago no Pleiades, Re-Kan!.
Trippiest: Mikagura School Suite counts.
The one where I want to take my past self and punch in the face for picking: DanMachi. Too much hype.

Anime I regret not putting on my list or dropping off my list: Kyoukai no Rinne, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, Kekkai Sensen, Gunslinger Statros, Triage X, Punchline.

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.
