So, I'm thinking of starting a little round-up of episodes of anime I've watched. A short couple of sentences, a rating out of five and some pictures. I'll see how this goes, but for now, here are some of the reviews of the new shows from the Summer '09 season.
- Bakemonogatari Episode 1: (4/5) Intriguing show, and the visuals are really amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed, despite hardly understanding any of it. I watched the anon fansub, although I think I will probably rewatch the qq & II sub.
- Sora no Manimani Episode 1: (3/5) The first episode was alright, but did seem a little clichéd and, dare I say it, not very funny. Will see how well the series goes.
- Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 Episode 1: (4/5) Very nice looking show, and shows a lot of promise. Can't wait to see where Bones take this.
- CANAAN Episode 1: (4/5) Wow, what more can be said about this show that hasn't already been said? Amazing opening episode with some fantastic action scenes. Sort of worried that there might be a lack of story, but the action will definitely make up for it.
- Aoi Hana Episode 1: (4/5) This type of show is definitely not my normal pick, but I have to say, from watching this first episode I'm really looking forward to this. Perhaps moreso than many of the other shows this season.
- Umi Monogatari Episode 1: (2/5) Now this one is definitely out of my standard comfort zone, but I thought I would give it a try. Can't tell if its trying to be over-clichéd, or it just doesn't realise it is. Not holding out much hope, but will give the second episode a try.
