Spring Anime

Post by Berym » Fri Apr 12, 2013 12:54 pm

So April's here, and that means a new batch of anime titles, as the old ones bugger off.

So far I'm enjoying:

* Suisei no Gargantia
* Ginga Kikoutai: Majestic Prince
* Date A Live

The rest I've still got on probation. Hard to tell before you get to around episode three for sure anyhow.

Anyone have any solid recommendations?

Last season's batch favourites were:

* Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
* Mondaijitachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo
* Robotics;Notes
* Sword Art Online
...to name a few

I really recommend Girls Und Panzer. I know that the premise sounds ridiculous but the characterization and tank battle scenes are some of the best I think, for a 12 episode series. If cyberpunk is your thing, there's Psycho Pass which seems to draw inspiration from The Minority Report.
Yo Mav, I'm real happy for you and Imma let you finish but Hirschoff had the best sig trends of all time.

Oh I've seen GUP - it was last season, though, it's finished up at the moment :P

Psycho Pass wasn't really my thing.

Whenever I see the name "Date A Live" I think of the Super Famicom game "Live A Live". Are they related?

As to me, I really can't take part in new season anime. Partially because I like to wait for the Blu-ray release (1080p and uncensored nudity! Woo!) and partially because I have a million other half-started anime series going back as far as the 80s that I really should finish (aniDB says I have 112 stalled titles). I can totally recommend the shit out of some anime from several springs ago though.

No :P Date A Live is about alien/spirit/things that enter our world with a large explosion, so of course the protagonist has to date one... and his training for this is to play a bishōjo game. This element comes up further once he completes his training, in an amusing way which I shan't spoil.

I don't think any of the anime I'm following having nudity (they're all ones broadcast on Tokyo MX or TBS or whatever), so that's not as much of a concern.

That's not to say I don't watch anime with nudity, I'm just not aware of any that are released seasonally like the TV releases are.

I recently went back to Uni and had a ton of time on my hands before starting classes, and have managed to catch up with my entire backlog, so I'm rather hungrily watching the Spring releases and testing out what they have to offer.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai does, along with some other stuff that's inappropriate to show on standard TV.

It's no Queen's Blade, but it's there. And then there's those scenes where Sena plays porn games...

Hmmmm. I'll have to re-watch it, I don't remember any.

I found it amusing when Sena plays Gal*Gun.
