It’s been a while since my last batch post, but allow me to briefly share my thoughts on a few shows I’ve watched recently (or not so recently but never finished the posts for). There will be another batch soon, because I didn’t want this post to be too long and I’ve binged a lot of shows while I was pregnant and during the past year and I’d like to share my thoughts on at least a portion of them. Next month will be a game review, but I think there’ll be another batch post the month after that.
In Japan a school for spies was created in 1937, and we get to see individual stories related to this agency of spies, called D-Agency.

Our favourite magical boys and alien wombat are back, fighting against new enemies, now that the student council has stopped their evil activity and become friends with the Earth Defense Club!

A small percentage of people have a special power called “Minimum” and these are called “Minimum Holders”. There is a special school for the children potent to be a Minimum Holder, and the graduates usually get jobs high in society. The group making up the Hamatora Investigation Bureau however have chosen not to take such jobs. Nice (CV: Ryouta Oosaka) together with his partner Murasaki (CV: Wataru Hatano) and their friends use their power to investigate and help people in need. Continue reading “Hamatora”
Kenji Kazama (CV: Katsuyuki Mazama) is a delinquent and he’s trying to become the strongest at his school together with his friends Hiroshi “Long Mountain” Nagayama (CV: Kenichirou Matsuda) and “Little Foot Yokoshima” Yokoshima (CV: Hiroki Gotou), a trio called “Kazama Party”. One day, however, the Kazama Party finds their way to the girls at the Game Creation Club (Temporary) and Kenji is made to join the club. Now his life i changed to be filled with weird games and he soon learns that the club president, Roka Shibasaki (CV: Kana Hanazawa), is the strongest and is the one he’d need to defeat to become the strongest himself. But things doesn’t go exactly as he’d like it… Continue reading “D-Frag!”
From now on I will write out scores for the shows I’ve watched. For anime these scores will include Story, Characters, Animation, Music, Total and Average. I’m, for now, using a 0-5 system. 5, is awesome, 4 is good, 3 is neutral, 2 is bad, 1 is horrible, 0 means I can’t score it. Scores and what I score might change over time.
Hiyori Iki (CV: Maaya Uchida) is your everyday girl, who loves watching wrestling. One day as she and her friends are going from school, she sees a guy running in front of a lorry. She jumps out to save him, but in front of the lorry, her soul is separated from her body and although she’s unsure how reliable the guy is, she has to ask him – the god Yato (CV: Hiroshi Kamiya) – to help her with her problem. But Yato isn’t fulfilling her wish although she did pay him 5 yen and while she’s waiting for her wish to be fulfilled she learns how the world of the gods work and befriends Yato and his regalia Yukine (CV: Yuuki Kaji).

Batch posts are posts with shows I drop along the way and sometimes films or OVAs I don’t feel I can give a proper post too.
Heart no Kuni no Alice
I… can’t… even… I don’t know. What did I watch? I don’t know. This film is an adaptation of the game made by QuinRose with the same name, which is the first game in the Alice series. It’s based on Alice in Wonderland (no kidding?) and I’ve played a little bit of it several years ago when I still wasn’t very fluent in Japanese. But this was too confusing. It completely messed me up and I kept looking at the clock. Yuck.

Batch posts are (mostly) early impressions on shows I dropped along the way over the season. Most shows which I stop watching are dropped within the 3 first episodes or I watch through it, but there are times I drop them further in (usually longer shows). The following four are all from this ongoing winter season.
Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiin da ga.
Or ImoCho for short. In English it’s “Recently, my little sister has been a bit weird” (ignore the fact I just translated the title as is, which isn’t what I’ve actually the English title, as far as I know).
These little sister light novels are going to kill me. I thought that after torturing myself through 12 episodes and a recap of Disgusting Wifebeaters (aka Diabolik Lovers) I could watch anything. I was wrong and ImoCho slapped that in my face only days after I thought I could watch anything. Life is cruel.
Well, ImoCho seemed to be liked by my boyfriend after a single episode (I didn’t check his rating on it on MAL. Nope.) but as I’m not interested in a combination of following ingredients:
Step-siblings (older male, younger female) alone in a house (well, will be – parents are leaving for India)
Ghost masturbating while possessing girl
And more stuff like as above. Yeah, I admit I couldn’t write more without being at loss of words.
I guess the first episode could basically be described as tasteless soft porn. I’m not into that. I’ll take on those vampires any day, as long as I don’t have to watch ImoCho. Continue reading “Batch #1”
