We round up our Spring first impressions!!!
Before anything else, listed below are the first impressions of some Spring anime that had been posted already:
Other Spring Anime Impressions:
Tsui: Hey, we also watch other animu even though we’re just too lazy to blog it!
Kanz: Well, it’s either that or it’s just too lame to be blogged. So anywayz, here are what we watched and a quick impression about them.
Hayate no Gotoku ~Second Season~
Tsui: The animation looked worse than the first season but I don’t care. HINAGIKU IS WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111oneoneeleven That’s all I can say this one. Will definitely watch it for Hina fix but not blogging it =P.
Kanz: Hinagiku~~~ But OMG what happened to her bright pink hair? I like the first season’s animation better. I don’t know if I’ll be continuing the second season though so I’m still undecided on this one.
Tsui: This is quite a disappointment for me IMO. The concept has such a huge potential to be great, too bad it turned out to be… lame. Everything cool in this show only lasted after the awesome OP by May’N. Besides from that, ugh. Everything was dull. Again, disappointed as usual from Gonzo.
Kanz: Yeah. I love the OP *May’N~~* but that’s about it. It’s so sad since I was expecting a lot from this one though after seeing all the character designs, the concept, and the awesome leaked OP. It’s really, ugh. So yeah, it seems like all of their budget was already used only for the OP.
Tsui: Another one from Gonzo, but this one’s really good! I don’t know what the fuck is mahjong but I learned a bit watching the first episode of this XD! This is fun and bouncy (really bouncy if you know what I mean). Fan-service is fan-service, who complains about it? It’s entertainment! Definitely looking forward for more of this show and possibly might make a post for it.
Tears to Tiara
Kanz: The quality, which I don’t know if it’s from the production or the raw I downloaded, is really bad so I can’t judge this show properly. I got annoyed halfway through the episode because everything’s sooooo dark and it bored me already.
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Tsui: Of course, this is the most epic show this season (putting Valkyria Chronicles aside). Everything felt awesome and I never get bored knowing that this is only a remake. This one’s really good. But what? Why am I not blogging it? It’s because I want to give chance on new-NEW shows this season to get blogged. I’m watching it though, but if you want to see it get blogged episodically, Random Curiosity’s your best friend!
Kanz: I agree. I absolutely love the remake, but I’ll give chance to other shows this season for me to blog. It’s really a good watch though, and it’s worth seeing FMA all over again.
Youth in Bloom
Kanz: Now where do I start with this one? It’s… forgettable. To be really honest, I’m not watching the second episode of this anymore because it didn’t really impressed me, or got me hanging to wait for the next episode. I like the character designs though *bishies~~~* and Kajica’s really pretty. And she’s kinda, bisexual? … But anyway, PASS for this one.
Natsu no Arashi
Kanz: I can’t believe that I just watched this one. I’m not expecting anything from it anymore and I’m glad that I’m not keeping my hopes up high. It’s MEH and it’s not even funny at all for me. Hajime sucks so bad. The girls looked scary and horse-faced (some though), and the 3-1=1 thing is lame and annoying that it annoyed for a lot of minutes the entire episode. Shaft-y as expected from SHAFT, the OP was ridiculous, the overall music was meh. Not watching the second episode, so pass. Bring back Maria+Holic instead.
Tayutama ~Kiss on my Deity~
Tsui: *sigh* This seriously has some issues with the animation quality but never the less, I’ll be checking this one out for the next few eps for some moe fix. Lolis are always win for me.

Other shows planning to watch this season:
Kanz: I’m definitely looking forward to Eden of The East of course. The trailer was just freakin’ awesome and the Honey and Clover roots from the characters are also another reason why I want to check this one out as well. And I also want to see Saki and maybe Polyphonica, which aired already.
Tsui: Yep. Eden of the East. Other than that, I’m honestly on how Hatsukoi Limited anime will turn out. So might be also checking that one for the slice-of-life fix. And for the others that had aired already, I wanna check out Cross Game, since the reviews about that looks good. Oh, and the second season of Haruhi too… Huh? Is that for Summer?
