So, in lieu of a Friday Free-For-All post, lorekai and EbolaBooze team up to fight crime and review anime. Mainly review anime.
Ore Twintail ni Narimasu
EbolaBooze: lol wut? I didn’t know what to expect going into this, and after three episodes I still don’t know what the hell is going on. It’s a crazy ride, and it is now picked the fuck up. Wow.
lorekai: Seconding everything that EbolaBooze said, this anime is just wow, gets by by sheer ridiculousity. Basically magical boy/girl transformation, fighting lizard monster things, to stop them from stealing the love of twintails. I have no idea how they managed to come up with, but I’ll definitely be continuing watching.
Grisaia no Kajitsu
EbolaBooze: Having played two out of the five(?) routes of the visual novel, I was wondering how good an adaptation it would be – adaptations tend to be not of the best quality. Seems promising though, they got the personalities of the various characters down pat (nutcases, one and all) and cut the fat without cutting anything essential to the plot. So far, so good!
lorekai: Didn’t know anything about it going in, but it seems pretty interesting so far. Nice animation, and pretty character designs, even if they are all nutjobs. Also like that they were far more equal opportunity in terms of fanservice then most anime of the genre, male butt shown in anime, I can’t think of many others that go there. Pretty good so far, I’m interesting in seeing what happens next.
Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete
Or: Science Cube with the Powers of Future (lorekai et al)
EbolaBooze: This one didn’t seem to have any obvious hooks from the get-go, seemed like a slice of life high-school anime and my expectations dropped sharply. The main character is my spirit animal though – astronomy for the win! The last five minutes or so of the first episode turned everything around, there was a hook, and it was a magical time-travelling naked-girl summoning science cube. Eh, I’d take it.
lorekai: Interesting premise, though quite a slow first episode, it was fairly obvious from the beginning that something bad was going to happen, but it was not quite what I expected. Mysterious science cube is mysterious, Vaguely intrigued but I’m not sure if I’ll continue, also the main character is most certainly EbolaBooze.
