I have so many on-hold series regarding this season it's not even funny.. primarily because I've been playing this mmo really consistently lately so yeah... >_> anime has been neglected for the first time in a long while. Manga, well, I haven't been seeking out new but keeping up with all that I'm tracking... I'm hoping to catch up in the 5-hour downtime later today.

But yeah, isn't it surprising that the animators of Hourou Musuko are the same animators as Blue Gender? :0

Ah, this season has given me a lot more than I ever could've expected for a winter season. Kore wa Zombie Desuka has seriously taken me on a roller coaster of events for a mere 12-episode series. It's not too rushed nor does it try to do too much; it's just enough of a little bit of everything and extremely enjoyable.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica: that series is seriously a masterpiece. It's been a long time since a series has made me stop and think about life, and this show has consistently made do that since episode 1. It's quite the refreshing twist on the genre Mahou Shoujo, and I am absolutely in love with it. SHAFT, as previously discussed, delivers once more!

I haven't gotten around to watching Kimi ni Todoke 2 because I've been busy muxing my own scripts for a few shows, but I'm glad Eclipse is back in action. But yeah, those two shows are what really stick out to me at the current moment. How about you?

Bungaku Shoujo was seriously such a mesmerizing movie to me; though I have to agree with you, the character development was somewhat lacking especially concerning Nanase, but that was covered in Memoirs, I believe? So, I think if you combine the two, thats what makes it altogether quite the masterpiece, something I wish more anime would take after these days.

Which leads us into the winter season... wow, I have to admit there has been some that's really surprised me in terms of enjoyment. Kore wa Zombie Desuka is by no means groundbreaking in any way, but the way they presented it is actually pretty entertaining; I just hope that the jokes don't take over completely and focus on the serious backstory and the portrayal of more fights later on.... I'm currently ensnared by Eu at the moment too, shes just too darn cute! ^^;

Beelzebub is entertaining and somewhat fresh to say the least.. focusing on a delinquent carrying a Demon Lord baby? Thats combining so many themes, and it works surprisingly xD and the anime was good enough to get me to marathon the manga which was 97ish chapters long, so I guess thats saying something.

Madoka Magica... wow, that series definitely made me feel it was like a crossover between Lyrical Nanoha and Bakemonogatari... SHAFT delivers once again in their unique directing of a show. I'm really looking forward to it because this is the first time I've ever seriously consciously watched a magical girl genre (Sailor Moon or Cardcaptor Sakura doesnt count cuz I watched that when I was little xD)

Infinite Stratos = Strike Witches all grown up with pants and with upgraded weaponry, throw in a male character lead. Personally, I don't mind the show and really enjoy it, despite all the raging and flaming its been getting for unoriginal as can be. I take each show seperately and try not to compare it because I feel like it would water down my enjoyment of it... After all, if one watches a lot of shows, like a 1000 of em out there, of course you're going to notice similarities... -3-
ShadowOfThePast Jan 18, 2011 9:04 PM
heya! figured id drop by and say hi; just noticed you finished Bungaku Shoujo, what ya think of it?
ShadowOfThePast Jan 5, 2011 12:38 PM
hmmm, quite the similar tastes we have indeed... so much its actually quite scary. O_o;

My favorite animation studios in no particular order:
Kyoto Animation
J.C Staff
Production IG
Studio DEEN
P.A Works

Kyoto Animation has already been elaborated discussed, so I think I can safely skip this.

J.C. Staff: this studio's name brings up a pleasant ring to my ears... probably it was because I was exposed to so much of their works when I started getting into anime. Notable works that I absolutely fell in love with: To Aru Majutsu no Index, Toradora, Shakugan no Shana, Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Ghost Hunt, among others on a long-list. Their animation, from what I've seen so far, has been pretty consistent at the very least. (leaving aside Tantei Mily Holmes >_>) When I think of JC Staff, a good story plot comes to mind accompanied with great animation, so whenever a show is done by them, I immediately make sure to make time for it.. (once again Milky Holmes is an exception xD) When a show is done by them, I know I shouldnt be expecting fast-paced action all of the time and that a lot of dialogue may be in store for me... but not as much as SHAFT....

SHAFT: wow, this group is either a masterpiece or a miss... all I can say about this group is: Wow, they know how to redefine the term animation. They raise the bar for animation quality, even more so when it comes to BD releases. Notable works: Bakemonogatari, the ef- series, Sayonara Zetsubou series, and Maria Holic. The way they direct a series is so intricately unique and the style of animation is so captivating (at times), the studio definitely found a place in my favorites...probably for the sheer randomness and the humor that they put into their works. but with works like Dance in the Vampire Bund made me cringe... but when I hear SHAFT, I always try to make time for it because their budget is usually higher than most...

Madhouse: what I can say about Madhouse? They brought us Highschool of the Dead, Rainbow, Paranoia Agent, Black Lagoon, and several other thrillers and action series... they cover a wide scope of genres, but their quality does not waver regardless. Their drawing styles are scarily realistic at times and the scope of the plots they cover are nothing to joke about; they're usually serious and in-your-face. I mean 12 pages of works on MAL, they're obviously doing something right and are going strong even to this day... though I wish Highschool of the Dead had toned down the sexual overtones... >_>

Production IG: it's literally in the same boat as JC Staff... to me, they're literally like rivals in this day and age. They both release good shows with constant quality and a story I can look forward to...

Studio DEEN: when this studio is announced, I instantly look to see if there is a visual novel/manga that the series is being adapted from. I like to refer to them as the Visual Novel Adapters. the Higurashi series, Umineko, Fate/Stay Night, Jigoku Shoujo, among others, come to mind when I think of hits. Animation is definitely consistent, but sometimes the story execution or adaptation of works may not be up to the standards of those who have played the visual novels/works being adapted from. Studio DEEN is known to skip out on some parts that fans are expecting in an adaptation that define the show in their eyes... regardless, im not one of those people and highly appreciate their work; I always look forward to their releases.

P.A Works: I really wish there were more works done by them. Seriously. I agree with you a 100% of what you said. A series that you havent mentioned that I feel you should watch is called CANAAN. That was the series that introduced me to PA Works quality and when I saw True Tears, I had to constantly keep reminding myself that this quality was not by done Kyoto Animation or JC Staff or any of my favorite shows... which instantly made this studio a favorite without a doubt. Angel Beats solidified my trust in PA Works and anytime I hear of a work done by them, I need to go watch it.

like I said, we have scarily same tastes... its definitely strange to say the least. XD and sorry for the long post >_<;

I agree that watching anime with other people makes the watching experience much more enjoyable. Nothing beats having coinciding opinions or even clashing opinions from time to time, so long as you get to talk about it. And something about just hearing other people's expressions at the same time as you watch it just makes it more fun.

However, I like to watch anime by myself first because I can get the initial impressions (be it raging or laughing obnoxiously loud, etc.) out of my system before showing it to my friends. Plus, I have to make sure its even worth showing to my friends or just better to keep to myself.

What other animation studios do you expect good things from? Because with as much shows as I've watched, I tend to pick up on certain studios that I hold to a certain standard.
ShadowOfThePast Jan 4, 2011 9:01 AM
I had a very good impression of Kyoto Animation at the beginning.. Clannad was my fourth series and Kanon 2006 as my fifth series... both of them were anime masterpieces, in my eyes, and 200 series later, they still are.

Lucky Star, as 'cute' (im not sure if moe really fits there -shrugs-) and unrealistically drawn as they were, was actually rather dull first time around because I didn't get the majority of the references... and if you take away the references, you get a show about high school girls talking. I only begun to enjoy the series when I had a lot of series watched and went back to rewatch it.

K-ON! was... entertaining to say the least. It was like a more moe-version of Lucky Star with a band, so I didn't mind it too much. Then again, I was in the cutesy moe phase of my anime-watching... When I started getting into more serious anime, by the time K-ON!! came out, I couldnt bear to finish it... Im still struggling to at this time, wondering if I should even bother...

Ive never watched Inuyasha and I never plan to either.. but its done by KyoAni too. And KyoAni had a lot of balls to pull off what they did with Haruhi 2009... They redeemed themselves with this movie however. However, im really skeptical to see what path this company will take in the future...
ShadowOfThePast Jan 2, 2011 1:34 PM
To be honest, I was never a fan of the Haruhi series... I felt like it was way too overhyped and attempted to be shoved down my throat way too often. People have always fanboy raged about Haruhi so much that it was sickening... I thought the series was decent enough to get some words of mention but nothing absolutely spectacular; I just couldn't see why people were in love with it. the "second season" did little to help me come to the realization of what was good about it...

However, this movie was just absolutely amazing... even for a person who was skeptical about the series from the beginning. I loved the fluid movement and the variety of expressions throughout the movie... Animation was definitely above average, it reminded me of the level of Kanon 2006 and/or Clannad. The acting and premise of the movie was definitely something that kept me reeled in from start to beginning... I loved the movie so much that I may consider reading the light novels, but I just wouldn't know where to look to start reading. I need to really show this masterpiece of a movie to others around me; anime enthusiasts or not, im sure they'll really like this movie.
ShadowOfThePast Jan 1, 2011 4:35 PM
I couldnt agree with you more, concerning the currency of MAL.. thanks once again!

So, on to more relevant news, what did you think of Disappearance of Haruhi?
ShadowOfThePast Dec 31, 2010 5:13 PM
heya! been a while since we last talked, but I just wanted to ask you something. How do you find new stuff to watch like you do? Like the upcoming movies, and the new type moon anime adaptations... cuz I would like to stay as updated too. Just wanted to express my thanks ^^
ShadowOfThePast Dec 9, 2010 8:45 PM
Thanks for the add! I should really start hunting down more people for my friends list, if I just wasn't so lazy. XD
