Atelier’s Escha & Logy: Ep. 1

Atelier’s Escha &  Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky (Ep. 1; Aired April 10th)

*SPOILERS*

This show is one of the ones this season that didn’t impress me like Black Bullet (which I’m currently working on a post for).

  • Atelier was adapted from a video game and it definitely had those moments that it felt more like a video game and less like an anime. It was something that could be seen in some of the dialogue of the show where it felt just kind of off.
  • I really liked the character design though. It wasn’t too over the top, but it had interesting elements like Escha’s hat and tail.

  • The alchemy in the show kind of confuses me (with the purpose and such). This comment probably doesn’t make sense, but I hope they tell more about alchemy in the future episodes.
  • And apparently Escha and Logy aren’t that great at alchemy?? I don’t understand why they would send them out on missions when all we’ve seen of Escha’s alchemy is her making an apple tart.

Escha and Logy on their way to do nothing important.
  • I liked how the opening showed a lot of world building. The song was okay though, but I think it fit the style and feeling of the show.

  • The ending video could have been better. It was just zooming in and out on the girl who lives in the ruins and they could have done so much more with it. I love her character design though!

Fuyumidori by Haruka Shimotsuki

This isn’t a show that looks like its going to have character development or a deep plot, but who knows, maybe it’ll get better. I’m definitely interested in the Ruins in the sky and who is the one that lives there.

My Tumblr Page!

Okay so this is my last post for a couple days (I do have other posts I’m working on at the moment)!

I started working on my tumblr page and I’ve been starting to look for GIFs/photosets of the anime’s I have caught up to.

So far I’ve only reblogged Akuma no Riddle stuff but that’s the only anime I’ve watched all the episodes that have come out.

I’m working on trying to put a search bar on my tumblr so it’ll be easier to search for things, but for now it has to wait because it’s almost the end of the school year for me!!

Anyways, if you’d like to check out my tumblr, you can find it here~

Enjoy!

P.S. And for now on, whenever I post a personal update, I’ll be using Deadmaster for the default header just because using ‘Blog Update’ is getting kind of annoying to me

No Game, No Life: Ep.1

No Game, No Life (Ep. 1; Aired April 9th)

*SPOILERS*

This show is definitely one for gamers!

  • It’s similar to Sword Art Online for all those SAO fans out there! Even the main guy’s voice actor also did Kirito’s voice!
  • It seems like it’s a “perfect world” but there’s probably going to be some catch to it eventually. It also doesn’t have that life or death feeling SAO had- or at least not yet.
  • And yet again, brother/sister love! I swear this is the fifth show I’ve watched that’s had it! It’s like weird fanservice-y incest
  • World building is fantastic – the coloring of everything is stunning.
  • The character design was interesting for every character – no one was over the top, but there was no one that was too plain

  • I found it interesting they were able to make simple games like poker so intense and make you sit on the edge of your seat
  • The opening was fun and upbeat, but it was kind of confusing that they put it at the end of this episode.

*SPOILERS*

  • I liked this show, but I can already tell the Blooms are going be really -really- annoying.
  • My favorite part was the fight sequences!! There’s nothing better than a show that has great fight sequences! And the insert of magic was a nice touch and blended very well.

  • This is also another anime that has twin love in it – they keep it a secret but apparently they’re both on the same page?? It’s interesting that this season is the season of twin love.
  • Another thing I know that’s going to bother me is how useless the sister is. She’s a part of the prestigious group, but she does nothing useful yet her brother, who is in a lower group seems to be a whole lot better?? Maybe I missed something and they switched places or something?
  • I love the design of the magic they use!! It’s really pretty and I can’t wait to see more of it!

  • There was just an opening theme for this opening, but it had a good song and the fight sequences worked well with it.

Rising Hope by LiSA

I liked how they had specials about how the magic works and stuff, but it still left me a little confused. But they added in that there were people who used magic that didn’t know how it worked either which was nice to know for all of those people who can’t understand it.

And another note, the main male character’s voice is also the voice actor of Gray Fullbuster of Fairy Tail which I love!~

One Week Friends: Ep. 1

One Week Friends (Ep. 1; Aired April 7th)

*SPOILERS*

Only one thing needs to be said: THIS IS THE CUTEST SHOW EVER.

tumblr_n3mi8oQAKd1rcj8eco1_500

  • I love the different animation style! It’s refreshing to see something new – use of softer colors works really well.
  • I liked how Yuuki’s friend had all the words of wisdom – Yuuki must go to him for everything!
  • I’m curious to see if there’ll be any other people to make a group of friends or if they story is just of Kaori and Yuuki although the story would be perfect either way.
  • The opening theme was sooo cute!!The song was really good and I liked how the animation looked like a watercolor painting.

Shards of a Rainbow by Natsumi Kon

  • The transition into the ending theme was something I liked. I liked the song and I liked how in general, it fit with the opening theme – had the same style.

Playing an Instrument by Sora Amamiya

And here’s one of the images they used for the promotional posters. I love it!!

Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii: Ep. 1

Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii (Ep. 1; Aired April 6th)

*SPOILERS*

My first impressions of this show wasn’t good, but I didn’t really have high hopes for it anyways. My friend didn’t really have a good first impression of it either, but I took a glance at her post of the next episodes and she said that it gets better so I look forward to that!

Also what she said was the first episode, you couldn’t really tell who the show was aimed at and where they wanted to take it so it was a little confusing.

  • I find the main promotion picture for the show is a little weird looking

  • The opening scene wasn’t the greatest – it doesn’t make sense unless you already know about the series.
  • Seems like a low budget series – the sound quality was terrible! I’m not sure if it’s because of the site I was using so I’m going to use something else and see if there’s any change.
  • Opening theme wasn’t particularly great – the song was okay, but the video looked like it was just a bunch of clips thrown together.

BEAUTIFUL WORLD by Joanna Koike

  • The ending theme was slightly weird watching the camera zoom out of the king’s face – the song was okay, but I couldn’t get over how uncomfortable it was watching the video.

Ending Theme

PROMISE by Rena Maeda

This show doesn’t seem too bad, but I’m going to get it another chance. I could tell when they finally showed the king at the end of the episode, the show would be getting better with him around.

My question of the episode: Did he really just get out of bed naked and throw open the curtains??

Kamigami no Asobi: Ep. 1

Kamigami no Asobi (Ep. 1; Aired April 6th)

*SPOILERS*

This show is definitely one for the fangirls and I’m one of them. It’s totally a bias for me!

And can I just say that Hades is my favorite!!

tumblr_n49yw4dV5M1tte499o1_500

  • One thought I had about this show was that it would be perfect for Takarazuka Revue [website/wiki]! It just really fits their style!
  • I loved how they had the flower scene every time they introduced a new guy character – I admit I was laughing though because it was a little ridiculous!
I'm liking this character a lot~

tumblr_n3lvmf0d5g1s8kmcko5_500
I’m thinking that the main female character will end up with this guy – it’s just something about him~
  • It’s an interesting concept, but kind of funny because they pick this one random girl to teach super sexy gods about love.
  • I’m curious if there will be any other female characters (that are gods).
  • And can I just say the ending theme is just a little ridiculous because they have all the gods singing (and a side note: doing research and I find the voice actors also sing the opening too omg)
