Catching up with Anime

Greetings I bring you with cake!

2532840

I finally caught up with all my anime episodes. And once again Shingeki no Kyojin left me in tears (episode 4). The end of the episode just attacked my mind with so many questions and consequentially left me sobbing over the safety of my favorite characters. But I have to wait until the next episode to assure myself that they’ll be okay. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Eren.

Eren

I love his character (naturally)! He reminds me of Ichigo a lot for some reason. He’s stamped in my top ten favorite male anime characters list. When the Titan appeared (I think he’s just made out of muscle…and teeth – a little skin here and there) I had a minor heart attack because to me, it just seemed like it was just Eren’s imagination that put Titan there. But to know it was actually there…yeah my heart failed me a little. I really wasn’t expecting that, I just thought they’d leave the attack scenes for the next episode but no. Well that was the highlight of the episode for me, along with meeting the badass blond girl who Eren learnt some hand-to-hand combat moves from.

Annie

Her look scared me right here.

I picked up on Yahari Ore no Seishun too and I’m absolutely loving it. Especially since there seems to be some Yaoi elements surfacing.  And I really love that!

Hikki

Saika seems to be another Yukimura to me – a gender confused munchkin.

 Yukimura cute

I was thinking I’d do episodic commentaries for this series but with my upcoming Finals, I doubt I’d get to squeeze in enough time for that. Exams start next week and I’m not really happy about it. Then again I’m never happy about exams. I really can’t wait for it to be over. I think the last anime I have left to catch up on is Karneval, another series I’m enjoying because of my fangirl crush on Gareki.

Gareki karneval

That and I actually enjoy the plot and beautiful characters. Karneval is an awesome spectacle, reminds me of K anime to an extent because of the amazing art.

I think that’s it. I’m waiting for the new episode of Hataraku Maou-Sama and Devil Survivor 2. So I think these are my top six anime of the season:

  • Shingeki no Kyojin
  • Devil Survivor 2
  • Yahari Ore no Seishun
  • Karneval
  • Hataraku Maou-Sama
  • Red Data Girl

Even though I didn’t really mention it, I really love Red Data Girl. The plot is good, so are the characters. I like the character development even though I think the plot progression is a bit slow, but it’s still good. I guess I’m waiting for some romance to spark between Sagari and Suzuhara. Hopeless romantic here.

Moving away from anime, have any of you watched Da Vinci’s Demons? It’s an amazing series so far. After the finale of Spartacus and the drainage of my tear ducts I swore off watching anymore Starz series but I caught it yesterday and it’s really good. It reminded me of Sherlock. I love Da Vinci’s character.

Hmm, I think I’ve cleared up all that I wanted to say. Hope you have a good day!

    I haven’t checked out Yahari Ore no Seishun, but everything else you’re watching, I’m watching too! And Spartacus kind of! I just started it but knowing that actor is dead is kind of… meh…

    What else do you like about Yahari?

      That’s exactly what made me stop watching it after I heard of the first actor’s death. The second one didn’t really capture the character for me. It was when Gannicus (you’ll meet him in Gods of the Arena if you continue watching) came in that I picked up on it. Then during the last season I came to appreciate the new Spartacus, so you’ll probably warm up to it more if you get used to the new guy.

      I love the humor, Hachiman’s perspective is so warped and pessimistic but still funny when he comes into contact with the popular guys. And Yui seems to have a crush on him too and I want to see where that goes if Saika’s relationship with Hikki doesn’t develop xD
      Another reason is that it feels really similar to Haganai, and now that that series is done for awhile, I’m using Yahari to fill that particular void.

        Oh, it wasn’t because I was used to the actor or anything. It’s hard for me to watch people who I know are dead in real life. It’s creepy. I’ll get over it soon enough!

        Popular… Guys? Haganai? I don’t know what that is- but you mentioned humor, guys, and some sort of fanservice, so it’s a go for me!

    Okay, how are you watching Yahari? I can’t find it anywhere….Except streaming, and I don’t want to do that…

      Nevermind! Found it!

        Haganai = Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, did you watch that one?
        I watch it on animeultiva.tv and animeget.com
        And the thing about Yahari, the fan service is so light, I just love it. And I’m beginning to hate Yukinon.

        May 3, 2013

        Nah, I’ve never watched that one. Kind of like Yahari? I found Yahari on crunchyroll so I’m super happy~

        What’s Yukinon?

      • charlmeister
        May 3, 2013

        Yeah, it’s similar in the whole “not having any friends” vibe. You should watch it, I think you’d like it 🙂
        Yukinon is the leader of the Volunteer’s Club.

    I love Karneval! Especially Gareki.
    What do you think about him? :3 If you don’t mind me asking.
    Btw, thank you for posting this, lol. I found a new anime to watch where I’m still all gloomy and stuff. (Red Datta Girl, sounds interesting! And I like romantic ones if it’s not that hardcore)
    Nice to meet you! Have a good day ^^

      Karneval is beautiful but I haven’t seen the more recent episodes. Gareki >Tsundere =automatic like xD

        I know, right? Especially when Gareki found out about Nai x3
        Well, you should! I hope you find your time to watch it 😀
        Thank you. I’ll make sure I will. OOH CAKE GIMME /shot/ I hope to see more from you too >w<
