Girlish Number – 01

「やさぐれ千歳と腐った業界」 (Yasagure Chitose to Kusatta Gyoukai)
“The Apathetic Chitose and the Rotten Industry”

Girlish Number is the bleak, cynical version of SHIROBAKO. It’s an anime about an aspiring seiyuu that shits on light novel adaptations, pokes fun at otaku, and reminds us how messed up this industry is. I never expected to be one of the more thought-provoking shows this season.

Nanbaka – 01

「ナンバーのついたバカたち!」 (Nanbaa no Tsuita Bakatachi)
“Idiots With Numbers!”

I’m not sure how i feel about Nanbaka. It’s great when it isn’t taking itself too seriously, but I’m not sure how well it does when it starts to dive back into the real world. Luckily, it only happened for the last few minutes of the show and everything before that was just pure mindless fun.
