Spring 2017 end

Watching anime is really hard

Also stopped being lazy and put things in rank order

Also I REALLY wasn’t going to post this considering it’s literally the wrong year now, but I saw it already mostly-written and felt like I had to go through with it ;_; no bully

Perhaps I should at least try to stay within 1 year behind :S


Sukasuka – 8/10
I had high expectations for this since I’ve heard so much about how great the novels are, and it did meet them. Sadly I did something really stupid (like accidentally reading a spoiler right before the last episode) but it’s still really good. Although I guess the anime only covers up to vol.3? I can’t help but be super curious but I don’t have time to read another light novel series… Maaan I hate sad endings :( but I guess sad/bittersweet is the norm now. BTW I love Koroazu. Chtholly > Ren > Rhan > Lillia > Ithea > Nopht > Nygglatho

Natsume Yuujinchou 6 – 8/10
This series has always been consistently good, but I’m still surprised it’s made it to S6 with no sign of stopping. Considering Natsume didn’t release a single name this season until the 2nd OVA, I guess there’s still a long while to go :v

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata 2 – 8/10
Saekano still going strong. Although I have to admit I’m a bit concerned for whenever the next season comes, now that my two favourite girls won’t be involved in the doujin shenanigans anymore (and I don’t care about the others much) Utaha > Eriri > (Iori) > Megumi = Izumi > Michiru

Tsuki ga Kirei – 8/10
Was very surprised watching the first episode and seeing that the OP was by Naobou; I’d assumed it was Hocchan at first. I liked this more than I thought I would… Very wholesome show. Why are these middle school kids better at getting over drama and misunderstandings than most adults? w

Roku de Nashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records – 7.5/10
I originally just watched this because of the Konomin OP (that didn’t even show up until episode 3) but I actually enjoyed this quite a bit for some reason! Not really sure why but despite the cliches it was a fun watch. There were some frustrating scenes but I liked the protag a lot. Hopefully there is a sequel so that the title can be relevant lol. Sistine > Rumia > Celica > Re=L

Shingeki no Kyojin 2 – 7/10
Didn’t grab me as much as S1 but still good. Cliffhanger-ish ending again though…

Fukumenkei Noise – 7/10
This is the “spend 4 hours feeling bad for Yuzu” show…… Very interesting vocals from Hayamin in the songs though; they really grew on me over time. But a frustrating show :| (As an aside, Shiki from SideM randomly reminds me of Yuzu, so my headcanon thinks of him as alternate universe Yuzu who can sing for himself and doesn’t have to go through all that BS with Alice 😋)

Eromanga-sensei – 7/10
This was actually better than I expected. Not as good as Oreimo, but surprisingly I still liked it. I guess I am officially desensitized. Elf > Sagiri > Tomoe > Megumi > Muramasa

Danmachi Gaiden – 6.5/10
I wasn’t really into the original Danmachi but watched this since Ais was my favourite from there anyway. It was alright.

Ren’ai Boukun – 6/10
I had literally no idea what this show was about (and was pretty sure it’d be bad) but with a WUG OP and Yoppi as the lead, it’s not like I could ignore it w. It actually wasn’t that bad despite being full of psychopaths. Akane > Guri > Yuzu > Akua > Shikimi

Granblue Fantasy – 6/10
Another one of those “I’m not going to play the mobage so might as well” watches. Typical fantasy fare though. I find it amusing how they retconned Djeeta into the beach episode lol


Best songs:

BUMP OF CHICKEN – GO (Granblue)
ClariS – Hitorigoto (Eromanga)
Linked Horizon – Shinzou wo Sasage yo! (SnK)
Suzuki Konomi – Blow out (Rokuaka)
Tadokoro Azusa – DEAREST DROP (Sukasuka)
Touyama Nao – Ima Koko (Tsuki ga Kirei)
TrySail – adrenaline!!! (Eromanga)
Wake Up, Girls! – Koi? de Ai? de Boukun desu! (Ren’ai Boukun)

Favourite characters: Utaha (Saekano), Glenn (Rokuaka), Willem & Chtholly (Sukasuka), Yuzu (Fukumenkei), and pretty much every major character in Natsume Yuujinchou


Other things I watched:

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card-hen Prologue – 7/10
Watched this at AX. It’s like… ridiculously fluffy lol. 100% nostalgia + romance between Sakura and Syaoran; nothing relevant to actual card plot yet.

iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls 2 – 7/10
Finally got around to finishing this. The drama wasn’t that interesting to me. Music is good. Shiburin is good. Not really much else to say; CG anime doesn’t interest me that much. Rin > Ranko > Anzu > Rika > Mika > Uzuki > Miria > …

Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni – 8/10
The charming parts of this movie were really charming and the sad parts were really sad ;_; It was very slice-of-life but because of that I actually enjoyed it more than most historical war/disaster-themed things that rely on shock value and whatnot. All in all it was a worthwhile watch. Poor Tetsu though lol
