Random Curiosity

Random Musings – Schedule Shuffling

it's a bird, it's a plane, it's a....croquette!?

With the new season now underway and having watched a lot of anime and dramas in the past week, I’ve decided to make some changes to the schedule. For Fridays, which used to be when sola aired, I’m going to start blogging the new drama Yamada Tarou Monogatari. I’ll talk more about this soon when I write up the first episode, but it reminded me of everything I loved about Hana Yori Dango, without all of the frustrating back-and-forth love crap from the second season. On Mondays, I’m going to be dropping Idolmaster and won’t be replacing it with anything. For those of you curious, today’s episode was about stopping a raging Imber, and the tactics used included dressing all the girls up in revealing outfits (though the final scene did have Haruka getting jealous of Chihaya for being in the Imber’s logs). My main problem with the show is that the level of storytelling just isn’t very good, and to be frank, I’ve grown rather bored watching it.

As for what new shows I’ll be picking up, it’s looking like School Days and Zero no Tsukaima will work out very well with all the other series that I’m carrying over from last season. Jaalin also still hasn’t completely made up his mind about what he’s going to blog either, and that’ll depend on how good second episodes of certain series are. There are still a few more anime that have yet to premiere, and I’m curious about Baccano! in particular, so we’ll see how it all turns out.
