Going Gaga Over Anime Part 2
There is a mahou shoujo (magical girl) anime invasion this summer season’s batch of anime. I think 4-5 anime are mahou shoujo type. But, I only put 3 of them in my list to watch. I do not want to have a mahou shoujo anime overdose. ^^
Gen`ei o Kakeru Taiyou
This is the first anime this season that I have watched. I really like the drawings. They are cute especially the clothes. >.< I really like cute things. The characters use tarot cards, which actually remind me of “Card Captor Sakura.” I think there is no love story in it (which is kinda bad), but I really love their clothes… promise. ^^ I have just watched the first episode, but I will continue watching it after downloading the 12 episodes.
Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma Illya
I have already watched 3 or 4 episodes of this anime. According to what I have read (if I understood it correctly), this anime is a spin-off of the anime Fate/stay night, which I also want to watch. ^^ The main characters’ magical sticks remind me of “Card Captor Sakura” (again). Mahou girls really need magic sticks. hehehehe… I think there is a slight romance in this anime. Well, because the main character, whose name is hard to pronounce Illyasviel von Einzbern, has a crush on his adoptive brother.
This anime is not a true mahou shoujo anime. I just put it here for my own reference because they have cute characters, which is the main element of mahou shoujo, and even though they are not using magic, their cards are kinda magical for me. ^^ I still don’t know what is the main gist of the story because I have not watched any episodes, but seeing these moe characters is already good for me.
Besides the anime above, there are still good anime that can be watched this season.
This anime was not part of my anime-that-needs-to-be-watched list because it isn’t as inviting as the other anime, drawing and synopsis wise. However, I have read a lot of reviews about this anime, and most of them are good. By the way, Shingeki no Kyojin was not also part of my list, but every time I see it on the site where I download anime, my curiosity keeps growing, so I ended downloading and watching it. Curiosity does wonderful things and shows you amazing things you have never imagined. ^^ So, I am expecting quite a lot in this anime. I have watched half of the first episode, but I need to stop myself because I believe a 13-episode should be watched in one day. hehehehe… Anyway, this is about a tanuki (racoon) named Yasaburou, and his adventures. The anime gives me a feeling the same as when I watched Princess Mononoke. ^^
Another interesting anime. I am actually not so much fond of science fiction anime, but this anime gives me a feeling that I should not fail to watch it. I hope my intuition is right. Well, most of the time it is, so I’m hoping that I will have fun watching this anime. The characters are Gatchaman, who are warriors with special reinforced suits, and they are recruited to fight alien criminals.
Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyo (Dog and Scissors)
The second anime that I have watched this season (only the first episode though). The story is about Kazuhito Harumi a bookworm, who lived in a house that looks like a bookstore (I envy him) and who was killed because of protecting another costumer in a cafe. He was resurrected as a dachshund because of his strong desire to read his favorite author’s latest novel. After being resurrected, Kazuhito lived in the house of Kirihime Natsuno, a sadistic scissor-wielding author and Kazuhito’s favorite writer. This anime is really funny, and it captured me immediately after watching just the first episode. ^^
There are still more good anime… just wait for the part 3. >.<
