SO what is P.A. Works up to this time around that they don't even have an ongoing series this fall? I'm not really disappointed with their no-show in the year's best season since they don't really have anything outstanding as of now.
This season really doesn't disappoint. As of this week, I'm really getting a hard time picking favorites because most series are already getting into me. BTOOOM! as one of the series I've already liked since the beginning, I like how it's been very consistent with its style. The story telling is just good, the intensity of the battle between players is amazing and the characters are just great.
Bakuman. 3 03 + 04: PCP could be a good manga, Ohba-sensei should write it as his next masterpiece with Obata-sensei.
Double post for Bakuman. 3! Sword Art Online would have the same treatment. I was really busy with school last week and I was also re-watching a couple of series and still finishing Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. HAHA.
AND I thought that Mei would get a haircut~
For some reasons, this episode didn't felt as good as the previous two. Or was I just getting too much shoujo this season that I'm starting to compare them? Whatever the reason is, I'm starting to get tired of Mei's character. Turns out she's not my type of heroine for a shoujo series. Well. Wait, turns out their relationship and their characters (Tachibana Mei and Kurosawa Yamato) aren't entirely my type of characters. Now let's get down to business.
BTOOOM! 03: why the heck is this survival game happening in the first place? I need to know!（ /ﾟ Дﾟ）/
I really like BTOOOM!'s phasing. I like how the first two episodes were made to introduce the two main characters of the series. I like how this episode has told us the things we need to know about the environment, the hows and whys of Ryouta's situation.
Watched it late. I watched all fall series I wanted to see first and when I have nothing more to watch… I watched this. AND it turned out as I expected it too be. We dig in to Kirito's story (I'm not using Kazuto or any other name. Changing names is a real pain x_x), we see his 'sister' and we see Asuna's condition. Now who's ready for the next OL game to be explored? :D
|I'll be a boy forever. That's why I draw shounen manga.|
This episode has been focused solely to the development of the art of Ashirogi Mutou's PCP. It's for the improvement of their rankings~
I can't remember the last time I watched Kimi ni Todoke. prior to this re-watch I just did last night. I can't even remember clearly how the ending of S2 went. What I do remember is that it's mostly drama and misunderstanding and Miyano Mamoru voicing Miura Kento. LOL.
Now that things are going pretty well for everyone, looks like the rest of the story will be about conflicts in relationships like people trying to take Yamato away from Mei. Based on the first two episodes, Arai-san could be one of the people who'd take Yamato from Mei. And the girl that was shown in episode 1, don't know who she was but she seem suspicious. Oh well~
I find it funny that they decided to cut ZeXal in to two. Must be budget related? Anyway this season of ZeXal has ended and the second season started last October 7 with a new schedule and it's called Yu-Gi-Oh! ZeXal II(: How's that? As probably the worst spin-off of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise (not that I've finished the other two), ZeXal never made me like its art, its story or even its main character. The reason I'm probably holding on to this series is my love for the original series. ~oh childhood :3
Okay, I'm really getting hooked on this series. Man, this season is really just exceeding my expectations. There're a lot of really great shows. I've only seen a few and I haven't really been fully disappointed on anything.
Sukitte Ii na yo. 01: there really is just something wrong with shoujo male leads, they tend to like peculiar or unlikely girls~
The guys in the romance series this season are pretty weird but really funny. HAHA. First off, we have Yoshida Haru from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun whose grades and idiot level are above average, Togashi Yuuta from Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! previously calls himself Dark Flame Master (and based on ep2, I bet he'll get back to calling himself that soon. HAHA) and Mashiro Moritaka from Bakuman. 3 who gets a fancy face from merely holding hands with his girlfriend. HAHA. And now we have… Kurosawa Yamato who saves the girl he likes through a kiss? O.O
|exactly my face while watching this episode|
I think that Bakuman.'s comeback episode isn't my fave OP episode this season. Although I have to admit that J.C. Staff has done a great job in continuing the series. Everything still has the same feeling (and I do mean everything because the BGM seem to not change at all. LOL).
BTOOOM!: OL game turned into reality survival game (and no, it's nothing like SAO. It's a lot better~)
The number one thing that captured me in this series is how great its suspense is as a survival game. There hasn’t been a lot of things going on but this OP episode has definitely done a great job in introducing to us the series.
One thing's for sure, out of the 4 new series I've seen so far, this has got to be my favorite. The OP scene, the comedy, the main character, the beautiful art and animation, and this episode itself as whole was very entertaining.
Sword Art Online 12 + 13: Yui-arc end + battle with Skull Reaper makes me wonder what amazing technique they'll show this time.
Two episodes with entirely different stories. I just watched them today and no, I won't go with my usual words of I should have watched it earlier. HAHA. They weren't entirely good and there weren't really so much development in the story as well. That's disappointing.
~BTW, seriously long post.
~My first anime for Fall 2012. I am really glad that I wasn't disappointed at picking this series up. I like the comedy and the romance :3 The partnership of a serious-type of character and a carefree-type of character is really great.
SO the TV run of Kokoro Connect had finally and I am more than excited to see the final arc of this series based on what Nagase questioned. I have no idea where that come from but probably she just suddenly questioned her 'feelings' since it was never really shown that she actually likes Taichi before Inaba did some fiddling on things :3
Anyway, the conclusion of this arc had been pretty good; but not very exciting. The best part I like about this is how much we are going deeper into the mystery (Heartseed #2 is an addition to the mystery) and how much I actually appreciated the new ideas that Kokoro Connect is trying to open up in here - the idea of going back to the past and recalling past memories that one must have or not have buried because of fun or painful experiences.
