Okay, 3 more new shows for the Summer season!
Hidamari Sketch x365:
I thought that the sequel would finally catch my attention but heck no. It still didn’t interest me at all… Sorry, but the slice-of-life scenes (a.k.a. the nonsense scenes) were a bit off compared to Someday’s Dreamer 2. But still, it’s worth some good laughs.
The latest Pokemon movie Giratina and The Sky’s Bouquet will premiere on July 19th on Japanese theaters. It is also noted that the theme song for the movie is entitled ONE by Crystal Kay. Last movie, an event-only lv.50 Shaymin was available via wireless connection through the theater but now they are giving away a special event-only lv.100 Regigigas if you pre-order tickets to the movie.
I’m recently having a habit of watching the first episodes of anime in RAW so I only understand like, 30% of what they’re saying (I’m harnessing my Nippon-fluency…) But I soon as I get my hands on the subbed ones, I rewatch them again (and possibly blog some that may interest me)… This post is just for my first impressions and rantings, blabberings, ramblings, etc and the likes… Let’s continue now…
Ultraviolet: Code 044
This one’s a sure pure action-packed but the thing that annoys me is the random boob shots that just pops out everywhere in this episode. The music, Guilty Pleasure by Becca, is in EngRish, which me like. And the graphics were quite great for an action-packed show. The introduction was quite fast-paced and the characters are well designed (actually, for some). If the animators would keep up the good work and prevent the show from being more talk and fanservice than action, it can actually be good.
Shaft will be producing the sequel of ef – a tale of memories, ef – a tale of melodies. The official site shows a preview. I think it’ll focus on Yuu and Yuuko basing on the cast list. I’m definitely looking forward for this one since the first one is really good and Shaft did a good work on the adaptation.
I’ve had a first look to the first 3 anime this summer: Ikkitousen Great Guardians, Chocolate Underground and Telepathy Shoujo Ran. I watched Chocolate Underground and Telepathy Shoujo Ran in RAW (and I DONT UNDERSTAND JAPANESE too much… its a challenge… but I could tell what they’re doing and I somewhat know some J-words that they’re saying… Lolz… anyway lets continue with my rants and blabberings!!!)
HERE IS THE LIST OF THE UPCOMING ANIME NEXT SEASON!!!
