Random Curiosity

Hundred – 01

「リトルガーデン」 (Ritorugaaden)
“Little Garden”

Hundred needed the best adaptation it could get to elevate its average source material. So far, it’s not getting it.

Gyakuten Saiban – 01

「はじめての逆転」 (Hajimete no Gyakuten)
“The First Turnaround”

It’s like a childhood dream come true. I feel like I’ve been the designated writer to blog all the childhood flashback/remakes lately.

Kumamiko – 01

「クマと少女 お別れの時」 (Kuma to Shoujo Owakare no Toki)
“Time For The Bear and the Girl To Part Ways”

While it may have started a bit slow and the timing of the humor could be tighter, I think Kuma Miko did a pretty decent job with its first episode.

Endride – 01

「ライド」 (Raido)
“Ride”

I can’t actually say all that much about Endride from just this pilot, except that it is a temptingly easy target.

Ushio to Tora returns for its final cour in what starts off as endearing and romantic before everything is turned upside down and we’re flung back into the action.

Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle – One Step Above


Good luck deciding, you bastard.

I wasn’t planning on watching this series. I had planned to introduce it and be done, as much because I was sure we’d once again get half of the story and never see the rest. Yet I kept watching it, because there’s something comforting in the familiar story, and for whatever its failings, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle is one step above. One step above average, granted, but that’s something.

Bubuki Buranki – More Than Meets The Eye


Relaxing after Third Impact.

Bubuki Buranki is by no means perfect, but if you enjoy stylish, highly-kinetic action, it can be worth your time for the unexpected wrinkles that make it more interesting than the synopsis suggests. Chiefly among the antagonists.

Osomatsu-san – HELLO BURAZAHS


SHEEEEEEEEEEH!


For a show that went completely under the radar (at first) for me, I’ll probably never get over just how much I loved this show.

Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu – On the average anime high school student


Not a single psychic power between the lot of them.

Since it’s so easy for anime to be out of this world, it’s easy to overlook the down to earth.

Haruchika ~Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru~ – Tackling the Issues


While not perfectly told, Haruchika had the audacity to try and be different.

Haruchika never had the best execution, but it tackled issues that many anime would shy away from or would be ignorant enough to ignore.

Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko: Everything Flows – 01

「彼女と彼女の部屋」 (Kanojo to Kanojo no Heya)
“She and Her Apartment”

Shinkai Makoto’s famed short about a job hunting girl and her loving black cat gets a picturesque remake, and it’s just as depressing as I remember.

Tabi Machi Late Show – Stories of Nostalgia and Melancholy


Short-form anime just keep getting better.

People often say it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for. That’s certainly the case with Tabi Machi Late Show, which came from nowhere and proved to be an ambitious little show that deserves more attention than it has received.
