I don’t have time to do the season justice; this is really a comment I started at Chizumatic. As usual, it got away from me.
With the exception of Code Geass 2, Steven pretty much described my reactions to everything. As for CG, the attraction to me is that I’m not watching a drama, I’m watching a badly choreographed disaster farce crossed with Hamlet crossed with Jerry Springer. I mean, if you just said to me “Hey, want to watch cars crash?” I’d probably go, “eh?” But if you said, “hey, lets go to the demolition derby!” I’d go, “Cool! Got earplugs?” It’s all in the presentation….
RD Sennou Chousashitsu: GITS ripoff is what I thought. Then I saw that it’s written by the same guy that did GITS, Shirow whatshisname. Guess he decided to file the serial numbers and try to pass it off as something new.
To Love-ru: Somehow, I keep thinking there’s a bit of UFO Princess Valkyrie in it. Which is odd, since I haven’t seen that series. Maybe it’s the whole “marriage” angle. Oh well, I’m guaranteed at least one good fanservice series this season, what with two doggie-girl shows (whatever happened to catgirls?) and one show that might even have an androido meganekko meido. (You know, I almost named this blog Mahou Androido Meganekko Meido, just for the absurdity overload. Fortunately, Steven talked me out of it.)
Maid-Guy? “Hayate, phone call on line three from someone named Nagi…” The text almost makes it sound interesting. Almost. The art sends me screaming from the room. Which is annoying because this room is where my computer is.
Yeah, unless there’s a surprise announcement of Melancholy season 2, spring is looking a bit weak.
