Other stuff from this season

In no particular order.

Sengoku Basara

Action packed first episode, with quite a bit of laughs as well. Dancing samurais in the opening is an added bonus.


dancing samurais. I kid you not

Tears to Tiara

Not much to say about it, since its an introductory episode. Riannon gets captured and is used in the summoning of the Demon King, Arawn. Some nice action scenes, and a very nice sequence in the opening theme involving an apple.


Riannon. prefer her figure

Pandora Hearts

This one I really enjoyed. The mystery building and foreshadowing has me waiting impatiently for the next episode. This one’s a manga adaption, about Oz Bezarius who, on the day of his coming of age, finds a strange pocket watch and meets a girl who first professes to know him, and then threatens to kill him.


crazy loving bitch

Plus: creepy chattering demonic dolls and a giant humanoid rabbit wielding a scythe.

Phantom ~ Requiem for the Phantom

Enjoyed this one a lot as well. Guy wakes up with no memories and gets stalked by hot murderous girl, and gets coerced into joining an assassination order. Somehow this one reminds me of Noir. Based on a Nitroplus game.


assassin maid! win! reminds me of Kirika

Valkyria Chronicles

Also enjoyed this one (I did say this season was full of shows I’d like). Alicia is cute, and Gunther is likeable in a carefree, slightly silly way. He doesn’t appear to be useless as well. Anime could use more heroes like him instead of the brooding emo super warrior (oh, pick any Gundam pilot) or useless funny faggot (like that guy in World Destruction, or Manji. Yes Manji, from Blade of the Immortal. He’s fucking useless).

Alicia IF they didn’t censor Eden of the East


OK this one I found to be so-so. Remember Bamboo Blade? Replace Kendo with Mahjong and you have Saki. At least the girls are cute, and there’s yuri undertones in it.


yuri is always win

Tayutama – Kiss on my Deity

I was looking forward to this (Its an eroge adaption. Some of my favorite animes are eroge adaption. Shuffle for one). It was OK, nothing to shout about. It sure doesn’t seem like its going to be Wagaya no Oinari-Sama. There IS a Horo clone in it though.

Oh, and there’s also Yuri!


oops Yuuri

Full Metal Alchemist 2

Remake of awesome series is still awesome. Supposedly going to follow the manga more closely, but since I don’t read the manga, I can’t comment.

What I can tell you is that your favorite characters are mostly back. The Elric brothers, Roy Mustang, Armstrong, Hughes etc. I can also tell you that the first episode is material you’ve not seen in the previous season, and that the fighting and alchemical summoning scenes are very well drawn. Finally, in keeping with the FMA tradition, the opening and ending songs are already stuck in my head.

Only one episode is out, but I have to say this looks to recapture the brilliance of the old FMA. The one thing I found odd was Mustang’s face. Was it that round the last time? Cos its really, really round now.


don’t let the splash fool you. its really ROUND

Queen’s Blade

You’re kidding me right? Go watch it already if you haven’t.
