I noticed a few days ago that despite this blog’s tagline mentioning “anime”, there’s no anime-related content in here at all. So I decided to post something related to anime here for a change, maybe every season.
And since Spring 2014 had just started two weeks ago, I would like to show the list of the anime I’m going to watch this season (I might add more though), with the reasons why I will watch them.
Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou
The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior
First caught my eye because of its title. The Japanese title literally means “We Are All From Dormitory Kawai”, a play on words that has a double meaning of “We Are All Pitiful” (Kawaisou means “Kawai Dormitory” or “pitiful”, depending on how it is written).
It is in the Comedy and Slice of Life genres which are my favorites, the author Ruri Miyahara is also the author of Love Lab, and the female main character’s voice actress is Hanazawa Kana.
Haven’t heard anything bad against this (except for a certain blog with the authors watched the first episode, though it seems like they haven’t read the original material), all are praises, so I have high expectations for it.
I already watched two episodes, and I like the story, the differences in personalities of the characters, the opening and ending theme, and how it is drawn, so I expect this to be my favorite this season.
One Week Friends.
Another Comedy and Slice of Life! Plus I like the story, and I recommended that you watch this if you like the genre.
I had read the manga on a few years ago, though I wasn’t able to read all the chapters. I have been waiting for an anime adaptation since then. I’m not a fan of Sports anime, I had only watched Eyeshield 21 in that genre, but the way the main character plays Tennis is interesting, so I’m going to watch this. Already watched two episodes.
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?
Is the Order a Rabbit?
It is also Comedy and Slice of Life, and a friend recommended it, so I added it to my list. If you like cute characters, I recommend this. I already watched the first episode.
Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
The World is Still Beautiful
I thought that it was Seinen, then found out it is a Shoujo anime. I was wondering what the title meant and first thought it was some Adventure anime, plus I would like to try some Shoujo anime anyway, so added it to my list. I already watched two episodes.
No Game No Life
I heard that this one is good too. Unfortunately it has some fan service (and I heard that the light novel has a lot more than the anime), but seems like it is still tolerable for me and the setting is interesting too. Already watched two episodes.
Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin
Nanana’s Buried Treasure
I usually don’t like anime in the Supernatural genre, but the story seems interesting, and the studio working on it is A1 Pictures, so I’m going to watch this. I already watched the first episode.
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
The Irregular at Magic High School
I really don’t like those anime about magic, but the way it is animated is really good, and it is the most anticipated anime this season, and the cast is interesting, so I decided to take a look. Finished first episode last week.
Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara
If Her Flag Breaks
Another Harem, and the second episode has some fan service. I’m actually only watching this because I like one of the characters and I usually don’t drop shows unless it is really bad.
Update: Added this one. Recommended by a friend, and Shaft is producing this, which is one of my favorite studios.
Date A Live S2
Update: Forgot to put this in the list. Gonna watch it for Tohka!
What about Winter 2014?
Some of the anime I’ve watched and like last season (in the order I like them) were “Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.”, Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon), Mikakunin de Shinkoukei (Engaged to the Unidentified), Log Horizon (haven’t watched last episode yet…), D-Frag (haven’t finished it yet), Nisekoi (still running), Tonari no Seki-kun (still running), and Onee-chan ga Kita (haven’t finished it yet).
I finished Nourin for the sake of my favorite character Ringo, even if it has a lot of fan service.
Unfortunately, I don’t like Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren much, so I haven’t finished watching it yet (no motivation to finish it, especially with these new shows that are interesting). Also Golden Time (lots of episode I need to watch to catch up!).
