Monthly Impressions – January 2015

We’re already one month in the new year! I can’t believe how quickly time flies because this winter season has completely escaped me. Crazy! I don’t know about everyone else, but I live up in the North and it’s incredibly cold here so I just want to hibernate all day all the time. Thus, I haven’t been watching too many series this season but the ones I have picked up are definitely some great conversation pieces. Hopefully everyone has found something this winter as well and if there’s an anime that we haven’t talked about already, feel free to mention it in the comments. Maybe it’ll spark others to give it a try too.

ISUCA – 01

「邂逅」 (Kaigou)
“Chance Encounter”

So, after hyping the show up both in my mind and on the preview, does the anime adaptation manage to do the series justice? Hint: Sort of, but not really.

Seiken Tsukai no World Break – 01

「転生せし者」 (Tensei Seshi Mono)
“The Reincarnator”

Of all the magical-fantasy-action-harem anime based on a light novels I’ve watched so far this season, this one may not be the worst, but it disappointed me the most. This first episode is an absolute mess.

Junketsu no Maria – 01

「完全なる乙女」 (Kanzen’naru Otome)
“Perfect Virgin”

Yoru no Yatterman – 01

「世界は真っ暗闇」 (Sekai wa Makkura Yami)
“The World is in Total Darkness”

This is one that’s going under everyone’s radar, but seriously, you should all watch this right now. It’s ambitious, emotional, and funny just when it wants to be. I’d even go as far as to say this was the best first episode of the entire season.

Koufuku Graffiti – 01

「ほかほか, じゅわっ.」 (Hokahoka, Juwa.)
“Warm, Juicy.”

An anime about food is all I need to convince me that this is what I’m going to blog this season. It’s like all the forces in the universe came together and brought together my two favorite things – food and anime.
