Fall Season 2011 – First Impressions

Once again, I let my macro slip. Reason: Classes, of course. This entire week, I’ve been on Fall break so I’ve had the time to catch up on all of the anime I’ve been behind on as well as take a peek on the episodes currently out from the Fall Season 2011 set. For once, I’ll be on time for a legitimate First Impressions post so let’s get this started. (Note: More information on how the blog will run during the school year at the end of the post)

Summer Season 2011 – Mid-Season Thoughts

As the start of classes for me are just around the corner (since I go back in exactly a week) and we reach midway into the Summer 2011 Season, it’s time for the quick Mid-Season Thoughts for everything I’m keeping up with. I will also add some thoughts of certain anime that bled into this season from the Spring 2011 Season. Since that brings me almost to 20 anime, I should start talking/typing/whatever!

After going through my pictures from Animnext 2011 and reminiscing previous conventions, I realized that there has been quite a change in American Otaku-ism the past 5 years. Now, for those who go to huge, major conventions may not agree with what I’ve been seeing, but for those who go to small, local conventions, you may understand my perspective a bit.

Moe Homura is Moe~!… Wait what?

Throughout Puella Madoka Magi, there have been twists (whether they’re predictable or not) here and there that has kept viewers, as well as the blog-o-sphere, on the tip of their seats for discussion and analysis. Due to all the blogs currently covering Madoka, I will not explain the episode and/or give my thoughts, then rate it. Instead, I’ll go straight to my thoughts on it.

Starting up again – Thoughts on Winter Season 2011

And with this, Kame-chan will start up Desu Diary once again.

Having gone through more than half-way through my first year of college, I feel like I can finally manage the time to do my weekly blog posts once again and revive this solo blog. Of course, there are no guarantees, but I’ll try my best. Well, I’ll start this off with my thoughts on the anime I picked up on during Winter Season 2011. (Warning: Will contain spoilers)

TTGL – Thoughts on Gurren-hen and Lagann-hen

The separation between mini Simon and older (and hawt) Simon has arrived.

Since Tengan Toppa Gurren Lagann: Lagann-hen subbed recently came out, I decided to watch both of the movies, TTGL: Gurren-hen and TTGL: Lagann-hen, in one sitting. TTGL: Gurren-hen covers the anime from episode 1 to episode 15 while TTGL: Lagann-hen covers the after story. I love the anime already so I wanted to see how the movies came out since it’s just the episodes condensed into 2 hours. (Read More)

Sasha. What’s with that cut on your face?

While trying to set up my Winter 2010 listing, I decided to check out Seikon no Qwaser. After watching the first episode, I noticed something: The anime male characters (rarely the females) that get the special abilities/curses usually have grey with some-what spikey, hair (which is not due to aging). After surfing my memory bank for a good whole hour, I figured out that female characters who have pink and long (not in any ponytail) hair usually have the most appealing personality and looks, but never get the guy (or gets rocked before they could). Is the reason for their failure (at being a normal human or being loved) because of their hair? Below are characters that fit my thought process… (Read More)

Society Doubts – Can an Otaku Learn Something new from Anime?

Watching a fictional character’s life doesn’t exactly mean we’re learning something.

Around my area, especially in my high school, people degrade anime to the point that they believe that it’s all just fanservice and/or entertainment. They take anime as sci-fi, since most anime have characters with supernatural powers that defy the laws of physics. In their point of view, it’s very understandable. Someone who hasn’t taken the time to study a subject cannot possibly understand what it’s about. In my previous post, I have talked about animated children shows and how they can teach them new things about the world. However, what about the animated shows for the older audience? Since the older otaku audience is more experienced with the world, can an otaku learn something new from anime?
