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.

  • 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!

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.

The Upcoming Spring 2014 Anime Season!

This post is a part 1 of many posts about the upcoming anime season and what I’m looking forward to. There’s so many shows that I am looking forward to so it’s going to be hard to choose! I’m definitely going to try to watch different kinds of anime to broaden what I watch – I usually watch supernatural, horror, science fiction, etc kind of anime, but I’m adding a school themed anime and some harem anime. I don’t how well it’s going to go, but we’ll see…

*Later today or tomorrow morning, I am going to be posting my cosplay tutorial for the female titan so look out for that!!*

Akuma no Riddle

悪魔のリドル (Akuma no Riddle) – A yuri action series with a school theme. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a manga)

I’ve never watched a yuri series in which it focuses just on the two main characters. From the trailer it looks intense and not so much fan service so I’m interested in how this turns out. One thing I really like about the character design is their eyes! They’re so pretty!

Atelier_Escha__Logy

イスカ&ロギーのアトリエ  ~黄昏の空の錬金術士~ (Atelier’s Escha &  Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky) – A fantasy series. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a video game and is also a manga)

I’m really liking the character design for this one! Especially with their clothing! It really makes me want to cosplay them!~ My friend was telling me that anime’s adapted from video games don’t really turn out that great, but I’m hoping this will one will turn out differently.

Black_Bullet_Anime

ブラック。ブレット (Black Bullet) – A science fiction action and mystery series. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a novel and is also a manga)

Can I just say the use of colors in this anime – or at least with the trailer – is amazing! If there’s anything that hooks me into watching a show, its the use of colors and this one really does an amazing job with it! As a kind of  post-apocalyptic series, this is definitely my kind of show and I can’t wait to see it!

301657フェアリーテル (Fairy Tail) – A fantasy, adventure series with a lot of comedy and quite a bit of fan service. [ANN link] [trailer]

Last year, this series stopped due to a cancellation, but it’s finally up and running again!! I’m in love with this show and I can’t wait to finally watch it again! It is a long series (they’ve reached up to 175 episodes so far), but I can tell you this: The character development and the quick-witted humor makes it a definite must see. I wanted one of my friends to see it after I had already watched most of what was out at the time. Going back to the first episode, I was shocked that this was the same characters because they went through so much character development. After we had watched the first episode, I had to tell her, this is not what it’s like for the rest of the series. If you had to watch one long running series, this would be it. I definitely recommend it!

ご注文はうさぎですか? (Is the order a rabbit?) – A comedic, slice of life moe series. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a manga)

I’ve never watch a slice of life moe series so I don’t know how this is going to turn out to be honest, but this series looks really cute though. I am going to give it a chance though, I’m not writing it off just because it’s something I don’t normally watch and I think I would like it so that’s why I chose it. From this series, I feel like I’m mostly interested in how the story-line plays out and I’m looking forward to see how it does.

極黒のブリュンヒルデ (Brynhildr in the Darkness) – A psychological fantasy with mystery, romance, and harem. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a manga)

I’m really liking this series a lot! Harems are another thing I’m not very familiar with so I’m curious as to how this will play out in this series. This show has a lot to do with the search for aliens so that automatically makes this a must watch in my book. Since it’s a mystery and a psychological fantasy, I’m looking forward to this aspect of it also.

棺姫のチャイカ (Chaika: The Coffin Princess) – An fantasy adventure with assassins, bounty hunters, and magical creatures. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a novel and is also a manga)

I’m really loving the use of colors in this series also and I like the character design for Chaika – a sorceress who carries a coffin around. I’m very curious as to what the coffin is for and how this series will turn out. It’s made by the company BONES which has also made Noragami, Wolf’s Rain, Fullmetal Alchemist, and No. 6 – all of which I loved so I’m really excited for this one!

一週間フレンズ (One Week Friends) – School drama about friendship. [ANN link] [trailer]

(Adapted from a manga)

I think I’m gunna die from the cuteness of this show and how romantic it is!! This is because it’s about how Yuuki notices a girl in his class, Kaori. It seems that she never has any friends around and he finds out that  it’s because she loses her memory every week. Despite this, he decides to become her friend every week. I want to find out what happens in this relationship so I can’t wait to see it when it comes out!!
