Princess Principal, Spy Girls Fight in Old London

Princess Principal take you on a journey with unusual young girls as they conduct espionage, all types of spy work, and even engage in assassinations. This is another take on the cute girls doing dark things. I am getting flashback of Madoka Magica. Tanteikid, you have made a mistake. Oh Then you explain it. Warning, there a few hints of yuri undertones that sensei might not have mentioned.

Tsurezure Children, Best romance anime, Come at me

Based on a four-panel web manga written and illustrated by Toshiya Wakabayashi, Tsurezure Children is all about young love. Taking place mostly in a high school setting, each episode follows two students as they either try to form, progress or even end a relationship. As any long-time anime viewer can tell you, romance anime can be annoying and off-putting; it is difficult to relate to a guy,  who has literally 5 girls all wanting to bear his child, but please don’t get your hopes up, he is very blind to their affections and will only see them naked, grape their chest, get beaten up by them, carry them home when they are drunk, misunderstand their romantic letters. Okay, stop, please get back to this series.

Gamers, Not about game but Romcom of the Dense

Gamers! spends its first episode lulling audiences into thinking they’re going to get exactly what they expect from an anime called Gamers!. Our hero Keita is quiet and socially awkward and games are the only joy in his life, until Karen, the most popular girl in school, appears out of nowhere and tries to recruit him into her secret video game club. This anime is less about joining a video game competition, but how to confuse people’s feelings for each other and complicate the two male’s relationships within the group.

Coming from what sensei said above, we will be talking about the characters of the show because that is where all the drama of the show comes from the interactions of the group members. There is no end-goal of becoming champions or reviving the club, but so much confusing emotions that will make you cried, laugh and cringe.

Fate-kaleid-liner-Prisma-Illya-3rei-2

So if you have been reading my blog for a long time, you know that I am a big Fate fan, so of course I will be reviewing the third season of this spin-off series about magical girls collecting cards.

This doesn’t look like Fate/Stay Night through?  Oh, you guys are talking about the fate there are magical loli girls, instead of the usual men and women fighting in  a holy grail war? Well, I did say this was a spin-off and the third season. This series in set in an alternative where the fifth war never happen, and you need to watch the other seasons before this one. Warning, this is the darkest season yet, and this post is a huge fan biased.

Time Travel Shoujo: Mari Waka to 8-nin no Kagakusha-tachi. Teaching Kids Science with Time Travel

57993142635de

“Edutainment” series, ones that both exist to teach and to entertain, are something not everyone enjoys.  I think Time Travel Shoujo is the strongest Edutainment series I’ve seen to date, and could still be something those that generally don’t care for them would enjoy. This is Bill Nye of anime.It tells the story of Mari, a middle schooler, and her friend Waka as they travel to different times in our history and meet some of the most influential inventors in human history while trying to find Mari’s dad, who was missing at the start of the series. There are holes in the story of this series like the science behind time travel,  or the villain motive to go after the time traveling technology. These details are annoying, but they will forced you connect the dots yourself to either accept them and watch the show or drop it.

Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru, Art club romcom.

Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru (or Konobi for short) is a perfect example of an anime which technically doesn’t do anything particularly different from your average rom-com, but it accomplishes what modest goals it has with flying colours. We have a standard middle school club setting and barely any plot development to speak of; the show is simply about the everyday events the characters experience in their lives, and their interactions with each other. No more, no less. But with characters as interesting and likeable as these and some good laughs to go with them, that’s really all you need to still deliver a very funny and entertaining anime.
