Interesting concept with not so interesting character designs (why is it that an anime never seem to have both?). Of course, there’s the always righteous protagonist, who I really don’t care about, and of course, there’s a girl in love with him but he’s completely oblivious.There are great production values (the shining strings of light reminded me of Macross), but the 3DCG look really cheap and some of the character designs are hideous (like the main character and the director).
I don’t think I’ll be following this series this season.
A certain scientific rail gun
What can I say that hasn’t been said already? Fantastic production values, cute character designs, funny, and 100% entertaining. Kick ass lolis are always good, and the fan service is funny and not too in the way of the plot (as far as I can tell).
I’m definitely watching this series (along with most of the internet, yes).
The sacred blacksmith
The art kind of reminds me of K-on (which I stopped after 1 episode because the main character’s a moron). And I really hate how the main character’s amour has 2 circles in front for her chest. Look at Fate/stay night! Knights don’t have armour plates that look like there’s 2 melons stuck inside! And unfortunately, it’s fanservice for the sake of fanservice, not for plot or even comedy.The production values are decent and the whole thing looks nice, and I hope that I’m not the only one thinking of tomato soup when the eyecatch saying “Cecily Cambell” came up (especially with that hair). I like the soundtrack, especially when the sword was forged.
Despite everything, the story isn’t that amazing, and I dislike useless girls in general (the main character is definitely useless, and from the moeblobby ending I don’t think the loli is going to be known as the kickass one either), so I don’t think I’m going to keep watching this series.
Kimi ni todoke
The first thing that I notice is how fantastically beautiful the opening theme is. The textures, the stills, the simplicity of it all! Then when the song ended I noticed how amazing the backgrounds are. They are like a mixture of pencil and water color. I haven’t seen backgrounds this interesting since True tears, and they are absolutely stunning and a feast for the eyes considering how I don’t really like the character designs (they are pretty much flat and they clash too much against the backgrounds!). The animation is flawless and I only wish they didn’t use that ugly looking style when Sawako smiled (now that I think of it, True tears had that problem too).
The music is also beautiful, with some amazing piano pieces, and the seiyuu’s voice is really easy to listen to. With everything there, the story is more like the icing on the cake, but what great icing it is! It’s really cute and awwww inducing and kyaaaaa inducing and funny and all those good things that I’ve missed from not reading shoujo manga for WAAAAAAAAAAY too long.
I really didn’tn’t expect much out of a shoujo manga adaption, but I think I’m in love with this series. I mean REALLY in love with this series. I’m not dropping this even if a comet is set to collide with earth. Especially not with that semi-cliffhanger ending.
It’s cute, and the studio had a good budget, but there’s nothing beyond that. I was really surprised because Kobato’s voice wasn’t what I expected it to be, and she can’t sing either. Why else do you think other people sang the theme songs? I’d rather stick with the manga for now.
I wish I can write more, I really do, but my computer is a piece of crap, even after I put in a new memory, and it lags when playing videos bigger than 300mb. That means I can’t properly watch 11eyes or darker than black, and I’m killing myself over that.
