Amaenaideyo is a manga adaption originally by Sogabe Toshinori.

Bronze.

It’s alright. It has its moments when its funny bit for the most point it’s just a standard ecchi show from this period of time. The boy is 16 and is your standard pervert (aka a normal 16-year-old boy) who lives with a bunch of girls as he trains to become a monk. Why? Um. Well, I guess its a family thing? Either way.

amaenaideyo 2.png

The basic premise of this show is Ikku is a pretty weak monk and as little spiritual power  but when he sees the girls naked he turns into a super-monk and can exercise any demon. I assume because to a horny teenage boy there is no purer feeling that seeing a girl’s breasts.

The situation skits themselves are pretty standard situations for high schoolers to be in, monks in training or not. Still, they are entertaining enough. The ecchi moments are easy to spot. There are no missed opportunities here, if there is a chance, the show will make a point to empathise the girl’s boobs or pantie shots. Some of the girls care more about it than normal and will punish Ikku for making any comments.Or just being there when they are angry. He gets beaten up a lot just for being the man in the group.

Poor bloke. It’s one of the trends in ecchi anime I’m kind of glad has become less common in recent years. Aka, the ‘pervert’ being beaten up for anything which happens (even when unrelated to him) because he’s a pervert. It’s one thing when he’s actually doing something perverted or making a perverted comment but another when he’s simply in the room when one of the girls is pissed.

I guess these animes were targeted at masochists who dreamt of living in a harem and getting beaten up by the girls. Not really a healthy message to send young boys while I appreciate the fact these women are strong and independent from men. Partly in this anime because they are nuns and have sworn off relationships but meh.

Once thing which did pleasantly surprise me was the ending. For one thing, there was an actual story and plot there in a show that was mostly one show stories. It was impressive given the genre. Even if it was still a fairly ecchi premise in itself.

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Review

Chivalry of a Failed Knight

Type: TV
Episodes: 12/12
Aired: Oct 2015 to Dec 2015
Producers: flying DOG
Studios: Silver Link, Nexus

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is a light novel adaption originally by Riku Misora.

Bronze

So while this is part of my weekly challenge, it was made in conjunction with Nexus. This would have had a higher grading if the little sister, Shizuku, didn’t have a brother complex. Those annoy me. Plus that ending.

This story started strong for me. It’s fairly typical in plot type and the characters are also nothing special. A guy, Ikki, who technically classified as ‘weak’ is actually quite strong and a girl, Stella, who is known for being powerful is defeated by him and falls in love because of it. Both of the MCs are likeable and entertaining to watch. Love or not, they make good friends and cheer each other on against the various hurdles they face.

Plus there is a trans girl who is called Alice. The characters barely register this to be fair, though there is some misgendering at first. It was interesting to have such a character who wasn’t introduced as a cross dresser. If anything Alice is still very much seen as a boy by most people. This was something I was interested in watching develop to see how the author/studio treated this character.

Calvalry 1.png

(Ok, I said I rated down because of the older brother complex but it was actually kind of amusing at times.)

The basic story is they are at a school for magicians and there is a competition to decides who is to represent the school in some kind of tournament. Ikki has a low level of magic but is good at fighting with swords and as such can keep up. In order to graduate because of his low magic, he needs to win and be selected as a representative. Skill can beat power is the message here and not necessarily a bad one. The fight scenes are extremely well done, as are the effects.

The budget on this one feel considerably higher than other silver link productions and the quality is higher as a result. That being said the character designs are still pretty standards, but the weapons that appear when they are fighting were pretty cool.

Calvalry 3.png

What made this anime pretty special was despite the harem theme (it’s not officially harem but with Alice identifying as a girl, Ikki is the only real male character which makes it harem to me), really there was only one real love pairing. The others had crushes on him, but Ikki starts going out with Stella with like ep 4? Part of the troubles they face include normal relationship issues which is nice compared to the normal ‘how can I get his attention?’ issues which normally appear in this genre.

Then the ending. The last episode was good. I like it, it suited the show. I didn’t like the episode before it. It basically came out of nowhere and then rushed to the finale in a way which personally ruined the series for me. The amount the forced into it was ridiculous. I can only assume they thought they were getting a second season and when that didn’t appear, rushed to make an finale. It was so bad! The rest of the story was easily a silver or possible a gold but this! This knocked it way down for me. Which was a shame really because I had really enjoyed it up until then.

Shomin Sample Review

Shomin Sample is a light novel adaptation by Takafumi Nanatsuki.

Bronze.

This harem anime is very entertaining and has a slightly different plot to most which I come across. Plus the main character isn’t a complete pervert. He likes girl’s thighs but most of the time it’s not obvious. Even when the other parts are on show, they don’t really evoke more than embarrassment from the Mc during the inevitable ecchi moments.

The basic plot of the anime is, there is an extremely rich school for just girls where no males are allowed. Except people have realised that it doesn’t exactly prepare the girls for after school, so they decide to kidnap a normal foreigner  to help ‘prepare’ them. Only to protect their purity, they pick a ‘raging homosexual who has a muscleman fetish’. Don’t we all love our best friends? XD So Kimito has a suffer through pretending to be gay or be castrated.

original.jpg

Something which is kind of hard when he is surrounded by beautiful girls who are very naive and innocent. Half the situations which happen are through no fault of his own. But he is well prepared with a collection of muscle-bound videos and other things to show the head maid when she suspects he is not as gay as he ‘claims’.

There are 4 main ‘interests’. Though the loli type in this one, Haruo, is barely acknowledged as more than pretty. Kimito generally treats her the age she acts and looks, like a child. My main issue with her is the face she strips when she’s doing maths, which is pretty often. The anime does a good job of censoring but it’s still a little uncomfortable.

shomin-3The other three are a well-refined blonde, Reiko, a shy but brash and honest red head, Aika, and a slightly violent but cute sword girl, Karin. They all have their own personalities and are pretty oblivious to the world around.

The plot is pretty good. The girls learn about the outside world and antics ensure. The school does have a slightly darker side, however. It is basically a finishing school where parents of boys can find ‘appropriate’ wives for their sons. The finale looked to be built up to be really good and then it happened and it left me feeling a little disappointed.

We went from a mostly normal story (antics of people with too much money aside) to magic powers and super tech within seconds. Then the confrontation was just a disappointment. After Kimito makes his point, the ‘enemy’ just backs down so easily it’s a little embarrassing. Unfortunately, this was enough to knock it down from a silver to a bronze.

I do not stand for bad endings. If you have made me watch 12 episodes, make the ending a good one!shomin-2

OniAi! is a Light novel adaptation by Daisuke Suzuki

 

Silver

I didn’t think I’d actually complete this anime given its theme and name. The younger sister loving his brother trope is common on in anime, but having the anime from the girls perspective is not something I have come across before. I don’t watch hentai so maybe it’s more common there?

Either way, OniAi is a surprising entertaining anime. The characters are pretty stereotypical of a harem/ecchi anime and many of the situations are the standard ones but they do mesh together well. With the added twist that people aren’t exactly unaware that Akio’s obsession for her brother isn’t exactly normal. Akio is half aware, living in a weird non-ignorance that she refuses to acknowledge she’s not a normal girl.

The boy had everyone likes, and only boy actually named in the entire show, is Akito. Akito is aware of his sister’s perversion but mostly waves it off. Almost too calm in the face of what he has to put up with from all 3/4 girls and then his boss to add to the mix. His twist is fantastic though.

oniai-3

The animation is good and there are considerably less sparkles than some of the animes that Silver Link have made. Maybe they clocked on with this one that story is actually more important.

This anime is ecchi and there was plenty of ecchi moments. A few had me wincing but most were in good humour. A few genuinely had me laughing. Thankfully (and showing remarkably good taste) the ecchi moments were never between the brother and sister. Or rather only ever in her imagination and not explicit.

So I give this anime a silver. It’s entertaining and extremely watchable.

C3 Cube x Cursed x Curious is a Light novel adaptation by  Hazuki Minase.

Bronze – Just

Having watched this all the way through I came to two conclusions. They had no idea what they were making when they made this. It’s in their preferred ‘moe’ style and while it’s very colourful and the palette is very pretty, art does not make up for a bad story. Or rather, in this case, extremely bad story telling.

The second conclusion is that they knew they were getting a second season so instead of trying, they just shoved as much as they could into the 13 episodes they had. If ever you wondered what a story looks without the padding, this is it. It’s way too rushed and feels it. There is no time to connect to the characters or believed they form any real connections to each other. There are three story arcs and it really feels like if they had just taken their time and made 26 episodes it would have been considerably better.

The supernatural elements to this story are often explained in the form of an information dump, in a way which is usually boring and occasionally just plain confusing. Too much information at once and just leaves the view wondering if they needed all that information. It’s almost like they did their research without working out just what makes these types of shows likeable. Even the sodding fight scenes are yawn worthy.

standard
The characters are tropish to the point of looking like carbon copies of other programmes. There is no unique character designs or any real form of characters development in this anime and if there is, it is stuffed into an information dump. Even their basic information is basically stated all in one go and then the rest of the program just treats everything like normal because it’s already known. Basically leaving nothing to be worked out, fleshed out or even made so we can even remotely care about the characters. Hence the bad fight scenes.

The fight scenes are sparkly but with no real to care for the characters or what them to win, they are kind of just sparkles and blood. A considerable amount of blood and gore for the the moe style. I’m assuming the were trying to shock people? I seriously don’t think they knew what they were doing. They just seem to throw effects on everything without care.

130281The main character is incredibly cute and annoying. Her ‘normal’ appearance is that  of a child and her voice matches but when she’s more in her [form I have no clues what to call. Cursed object form maybe?] her voice is mature as an adult. The story will go dark and serious at strange moments and just switches without warning or story clues. She at least has a clear split personality. The others have no excuse for the dramatic switches in personality.

It is a harem/ecchi anime it’s not as ecchi as you would assume. There are a few panty shots and a few breast groping moments but to be honest, most of the episodes are clean and you can almost forget its meant to be an ecchi,to be honest. Until episode 9 where there is basically a tentacles scene and you are shocked back into realisation. Either that or modern anime as just shocked me into not really noticing mild stuff anymore.

Also, the enemy for the first arc of the program is an annoying blonde whose catchphrase is ‘bitch’. Gets extremely annoying. It is the only real curse word in the whole thing and just feels out of place.

The voice acting is fab, most of the issues for the speaking of the characters is down to lazy animating. They can add sparkles all they want to the scenes but it’s not hiding the fact that the studio was extremely lazy at making people’s mouths move when they are talking in this one. The mouths move but that’s it. No real shapes other than ones used for emotions.sparkles

Oh and the music! Half-assed at best. Some attempted made but it’s not edited together very well. The beginning and ends songs are good but when they cut from a fighting scene to the soft and gentle ending music, it’s not very dramatic. Just leaves you feeling unimpressed and unenthused with the editing .I do wonder why the opening chances at ep9? we have 4 episodes of a different opening than the original and it makes no real scene as it wouldn’t have been a new anime season? Unless they just didn’t want to waste one made for if they got a season 2, I guess.

so yeah. Not one I’m likely to go back to again.

Yuri Kuma Arashi Review

Yuri Kuma Arashi69203l

completed 2015

Type: TV
Episodes: 12/12
Aired: Jan, 2015 to Mar, 2015
Producers: Frontier Works, FUNimation Entertainment, Media Factory, Mainichi Broadcasting, Movic, Gentosha Comics
Studios: Silver Link

Yuri Kuma Arashi was an original anime project written by  Kunihiko Ikuhara, though the manga written for it was published before the anime was released.

In the beginning we hated you so

In the beginning we must have loved you to

And so we wanted to become true friends with you. To cross the wall

I’m not really sure how I am meant to feel about this anime. I guess a silver? I’m not likely to forget the plot and I think I enjoyed it. It’s very surreal. Like a strange cross between xxxholic and utena. With added Yuri, cannibalism and less guys.  This is a story is about the love and bonds we share and how the world likes to destroy those bounds. I called it cannibalism however its bears eating humans, admittedly disguised as humans but still the same.kuma 3

We don’t really see any blood, but this anime is definitely NSFW. Containing a lot of suggestive scenes. Even in the opening there are a few moments of ummmm. Toe biting? Yuri in genre is not a genre I enjoy, and it was only because of my weekly challenge that I watched this. That and the artwork is not moe and has decent proportions. Unlike most things Silver link makes – thank god! I do have a limit with ecchi stuff and the appearance of the characters. Not to stay the artwork is pretty. Its very shoujo, almost CLAMP like. Big round eyes and long legs and bodies. kuma 2The story is one with twists and deep symbolic meanings. This story is laced with symbolism and if you think this anime is as simple of bears wanting to eat humans, you would be wrong. If anything the idea of an ‘invisible storm’ is proof of this. Those who don’t fit in and conform to society’s ideas are excluded from the herd and left to be eaten by the bears. Not literally from the school, but rather from the herd’s events etc. Sound familiar? Just think of your own friends who are LGBT or simply not the standard model, how much they have to face from people. Society is not forgiving to those who stick out.

kuma 4

Love is more times than not in anime over sexualised. It’s refreshing to see any anime about love being more true and honest. Kureha is in love with Sumika. Even after she dies, she is determined to not spoilt that love, or friendship. Declaring for a while afterwards that she doesn’t want to make any more friends. Sumika is her only friend. Not that it doesn’t stop the others from trying. The storm taking more than one form once someone has been removed.

kuma 5

The bears, for reason of their own, wish to protect Kureha. Because one loves her due to the kindness showed to her once she was young. Refusing to give up on love. Eating girls who become a threat to Kureha, Jealousy. Love. Determination. Also lost chances. This anime covers the complexness which is love while keeping it sweet and innocent. For the most. But not only love itself but the fight people have to face against society’s view of their love. How people choose to get in the way of love. Because they don’t agree with it, or because they want it themselves.

Basically, this anime is deep. Very deep. With hidden means and a fantastic story line. Don’t be put off my the fact it is yuri or the fact it is surreal. It is a gem in the dust which likely deserved more attention that it got.

‘Is your love true?”

“Will you eat humans, or will you become invisible?”

So many deep references I’m not going to even begin because you could write papers on this anime!

For people who enjoyed this, I would recommend Utena. I did some researching and it turns out they are both directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara which explains the similar feelings between the two.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia Review

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is a manga adaptation written by Maybe.

This is anime is a strong silver to me. It is a lovely story with a strong storyline which doesn’t really faulter. The characters are not as strong but they were entertaining enough to keep me focused on the screen. Something which can be hard in some animes when the characters are weak/boring. There are no episodes which feel like fillers or out of place. The ecchi moments, while there are not completely in your face and they do a good job of tying up loose ends. Tasogare 2So the plot? Well. Yuuko is a ghost. A very famous ghost at a private school. The private school is a unique place, having been built and expanded to the point where the school is a maze of classrooms and corridors. Rooms which have been reassigned to storage, and corridors which don’t actually  lead anywhere. Basically the perfect place for supernatural stories to take place.

Yuuko is trapped in this large school and basically creates ghost story’s because she gets bored and does things which scare people who can’t see her. Like play the piano in the music room etc. She’s not intentionally trying to scare people but the ghost stories do me she can manifest in scary forms due to their believes.  Which i quite like the idea of. Its not necessarily her being evil, because she is not, but the fear which the school builds up due to her presence which makes her seem like a monster to a lot of the student body. Thing is though, she doesn’t remember her past or how she died.Tasogare 1

Enter Niiya. A freshman who for some reason can see Yuuko. Niiya then agrees to help her investigate the 7 mystery’s around her and her past. Along with two other girls who join the club. One for fun, Okonogi, and the other because she too can see Yuuko and doesn’t trust her, Kanoe.

I like how they introduced the characters, I thought it was a very unique and fun way to met them. We met Okonogi first. Okonogi can’t actually see Yuuko but believes she exists. She joins the club after they ‘save’ her from a ghost she summonsed (completely made up by Yuuko being bored). She’s the one who finds the ghost stories from them to investigate and of course has a massive crush on Niiya. She’s gullible, silly and a bit oblivious. The series opens up to her talking to herself in the club room with Yuuko trying to haunt her and failing as Okonogi takes no notice of it. Its brilliant in so many ways.
Tas
Do I like her? Most of the time.She’s got determination, I’ll give her that. Fighting, literally occasionally with a love rival she can not see. Because of this she often inadvertently gets in the way of Yuuko and Niiya having dates etc. She is spunky but her character doesn’t really play much role other than to be a more active love rival. She has little to no developments, not that the others have much but it always pushes a anime down in my opinion if they do not take proper care of their characters.

She has more personalty than the rest of them. Ignoring Yuuko. Niiya is your typical shounen boy. Loyal, whole hearted and a little oblivious to the fact most of the girls around him have crushes on them. Kanoe plays the part of serious but easily embarrassed love rival. She also looks a lot like Yuuko for a very good reason in my books. But in all honesty the characters were not very good or special in the anime. The animation is also pretty standard.

What makes this anime entertaining is the story, which I’m not going to give too many spoilers away for. Simply to say, its not quite only Yuuko haunting the school and the reason why is very clever to me. I love ghost stories so this one really ran up my alley.

My one beef was with the ending. I really liked how they were setting it up. Everything had been resolved and revealed. They had been on a date. It was all sad and than… Call me silly but I would have preferred the sad ending indicated by what they were setting up. Its a ghost story! Also everything had been sorted so it was a good end. So why did they feel the need to force a happy one? So many issues with having the ending this way. You can’t even say ‘to lead on to a second season’. A second season doing what? They achieved all their objectives!

So Silver. Good story and tastefully done. Bad characters and slightly disappointing ending due to genre.

Sankarea Review

Completed Episodes: 12/12
Aired: Apr, 2012 to Jun, 2012
Producers: Studio Deen, FUNimation Entertainment, Lantis, Pony Canyon,TBS, Kodansha

Sankarea is a manga adaptation originally written by Mitsuru Hattori.

Put until the last two episodes, I was going to put this as silver maybe even a gold if the ending matching up the the beginning, but the ending spoiled this anime to me. Basically the ending was weak. It was not bad romance because just the anticlimactic-ness of it all. If I’m honest, the fact we had two random episodes about minor characters instead of the main plot line was already counting against it. While one explained a bit of the emotions of the one of the main-ish character, the other was just plain filler. As was the last episode. Nothing to the plot, other than an excuse to have fireworks so the main characters could hopefully could reveal their feeling for each other. And fail. As the anime trope goes. Though the final bit was certainly not a normal trope.

This anime is different. The premise being familiar but new in anime form. A human boy falls in love with a zombie girl. Except it more, he falls in love with a girl who then becomes a zombie. What I liked about this anime was that it had a strong beginning. The characters were well introduced, as was the story. A boy obsessed with zombies is trying to work out how to resurrect his dead pet when a beautiful girl stumbles on him. A girl with a dark family life. Who he then promises that if she ever becomes a zombie, he’ll look after her. Not for one moment thinking it will actually happen.

Sankarea 01

Aka, her father is obsessed with her. Beyond unhealthy levels. Much to her mothers unhappiness. We know at the end of the first episode this girl is destined to return to him as a zombie but it is a few episodes before that occurs. Instead we watch as her father tries to control her while she sneaks out to met with him. When she finally dies, we watch something as she arises from the dead. Not that it stops her fathers obsession at all. hadena-sankarea-03-10bit720p72e36eea-mkv_snapshot_21-58_2012-06-24_13-33-27

I did like the symbolism in this anime. In Japan there is a strong connection between hydrangeas and death. Beautfiul flowers which have a dark meaning in Japanese culture. That they could bring someone back to life was a cool idea. The idea to make it so they could preserve zombies and let them life longer before turning feral was ok. It makes sense, if they are the key ingredient that a supply of them is needed to remain alive but it seemed to be missing something. Not that the story would have been better if Rea had been fighting the desire to eat flesh.sankarea-06-40

The thing which really disappointed me about this anime was the ending with the father. This guy is a real sicko. Claiming to be protecting his daughter’s purity. They go though this whole build up of him kidnapping them both and dramatic revelations. And then nothing. Barely a fight, and then he just accepts what they want. This is a guy who paid for people to follow and kidnap his daughter and her friend and he just… lets her stay with him? I don’t know what I expected but something a bit more dramatic/interesting than that!

If someone was the ask me about this anime I’d properly tell them to give it a go. But I’m not likely to recommend it of the tip of my head. It had a really interesting premise and a good if not twisted story built around it but while it passed barely on the romance side, the other aspects failed to satisfy when could have been. This anime could have been so good. But it failed to deliver. So Bronze

Ai Yori Aoshi Review

Ai Yori Aoshi is a manga adaptation originally written by Kou Fumizuki

This anime is not one I remember much to at all, which makes my rating low anyway. I remembered it was about a normal guy who suddenly gets a traditional Japanese wife/fiancée. I didn’t remember they were childhood friends. I also remembered this anime gave me a similar feeling to Chobits/dearS but pretty much nothing else. Oh! Also that he is estranged from his family and thinks this is a set up.

Don’t get me wrong, I properly should re-watch this before reviewing but considering how much I remember of other series I watched at the same time, it doesn’t really give me a good enough incentive to try again. It suggests to me that I didn’t really enjoy this anime, or well, I enjoyed it enough to complete it but not enough to retain much about the story. Give its age and its genre types, its not really the sort of program I would watch now. Maybe in summer I will give it another change but not for the moment.

Sorry any fans of this anime, and I do encourage people to watch it themselves due to my lack of memory but bronze.

I watched this anime while I was still pretty green to the whole ecchi/harem genre layout. So we have a ‘beautiful’ noble, Lady Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière, who can’t use her magic properly and summons a human from another world to world as a familiar. Aka something to channel her power though. As a side note, she is well known for not being able to use her magic well and was nicknamed “Louise the Zero” by his classmates because of this. Lousie is a spoilt girl who honestly is still high up on my ‘Anime girls I would love to slap’ list. This lady is queen of being a tsudere. I don’t care that her type is tsudere, she’s a bitch who needs taking down a few notches.
As for the poor guy who gets summoned, Saito Hiraga he ends up with an abusive woman for a ‘master’. Because he is a familiar, the proof being the runes on his hand, he is basically treated like an animal by Louise. And like a pervert because he occasionally looks at women’s boobs. You know that thing all young single men do when its practically shoved in front of them. Lousie beats him often and its not always funny. Heck, the only reason he can talk and understand them all is because Lousie miscast a silencing spell, giving him the ability to understand them.
Whats more, turns out it actually a pretty good familiar. The runes on his hand means he some kind of super solider able to use any weapon given to him with a high level of skill.  Including a Jet fighter plane which fell though to that world once. But does he try to stop Lousie beating him? No! Does he fall in love with her? Yes!
Wait what? I have some serious issues with this. When did they fall in love? Saito has opinions over that Louise. I swear its some like of Stockholm syndrome and if it was the other way round this anime would be getting a lot more hate. Why is it suddenly sexy/funny for a flat chest little girl to beat the hell out of some poor bloke who has no chance of getting away? At least most tsudere character’s signant other wasn’t forced into a relationship. (Yes he fell in love, but he had to live with her and such for the series). At the end of season 2, they get married. I didn’t bother going back for season 3.
Now, all being said, I do remember sort of enjoying the anime. Its very beautiful and the characters were cool. I just hate the main girl is all. So Bronze.
