Angel Beats: Overall Review

I always thought that Angel Beats was based from a game. I probably misread it somewhere. Maybe it’s because if I read the word Key, I quickly assume that it’s from a game.

Jun Maeda, creator of Clannad, Kanon and Air  and a part of the Key team, is the one who created the story of Angel Beats. He’s a a freakin’ genius and quite skilled in making stories that make us cry.

I’d say this anime is one hell of a hit. The animation is spot-on, thanks to P.A. Works and Aniplex for this. High quality indeed. ( Even better if you buy the DVDs. )  The comedy and seriousness are equally balanced,  no dull moments, steady character growths ( for everyone ) and the plot is executed nicely that it isn’t dragging or boring at all.

Na-Ga is another member of the Key team who was nominated by Jun Maeda to do the job of creating the character designs of Angel Beats. He’s also responsible for designing the characters from Little Busters! Maeda personally requested that Yuri’s image should have a headband, based on Yukiko Amagi’s character from Persona 4. ( It’s his favorite character lol ).

I’m probably praising this anime too much, right?  Ha-ha! I don’t care. I loved it. Angel Beats taught me more about life. And the main theme of the story is acceptance to ones own life. WELL DONE, JUN MAEDA!!

This anime is definitely worth watching again. Thank you Angel Beats!

Durarara!!: Last episode Review + General Review of the Whole series

    After watching the last episode of Durarara, I had a blank expression on my face. It ended as if nothing happened. It was really nothing special. Nobody died, no shocking revelation, Ryuugamine didn’t do anything at all and in-terms of character growth, most of them didn’t improve at all. Some characters were oddly flat.That’s what you normally get when there are a lot of characters.The plot focused more on how they were connected which is one of the reasons why I watched the show in the first place.

    I have to admit. There were dull moments and they couldn’t keep the
    excitement that was built up on some of the episodes. But they put a lot of cliff hangers which pretty much made us look forward to the next
    episode.

    It was a happy ending. A very plain one at that. Kida, Ryuugamine and
    Anri are reunited and Ikebukuro remains the same. I’m hoping for a season 2 or an OVA or maybe even a movie. Because, I really can’t accept such a dull ending. The series had potential to be a great one but too bad it didn’t. Looking back now, I guess I’ll rate Durarara as “Above Average”. Still worth watching but not worth watching again. That’s just me though.

    There are things you wouldn’t get with just one view of Durarara. It’s just like a game. You don’t unlock everything with just one play through.I know I didn’t get the whole picture of the anime but I’m satisfied with what I got already.

    Thanks Durarara! Without you, there wouldn’t be “Colorless”.

    Tayutama : Late Anime Review

    Photobucket

    I know it’s a little late for this..but I just had to do it.

    Tayutama lies between Nagi Kannagi, Chizuru Kanokon and those typical Harem anime.It’s not bad at all. In fact , I’m quite impressed on how it stayed loyal to the ero-game character designs. Unlike some animes ( *cough* Akikan *cough* )

    So, we have a cliched story on where a girl is forced to live with a guy and become his partner for life. We’ve seen this genre/plot countless of times with varying character types , ways of meeting and reason for being stuck with each other. It could be arranged mairrage , destiny , the girl or boy was forced to be in “that” situation , etcetera etcetera. You know the drill. In this case , the guy is a decedant of some other guy who helped saved the world from evil hundreds of years ago. He’s also skilled and not some typical Baka-ero shounen. Still , the dialogue “It’s not what you think!” or “You misunderstood!!” is inevitable to say on a Harem anime by Yuuri.

    Now, about the Female lead. We have a not-so innocent Goddess. Her personality cross-breeds between an innocent ojou-sama type and a sly fox. Which is , quite new to me , making me interested to watch this anime more.

    Of course , the blonde iinchou-type is there. Imouto-type. Childhood friend type. What else…Oh..the black haired one with red eyes…I don’t know what’s her type but can I take a guess? The silent type? Well, let’s see.

    This is a keeper for me. Even though WE ALL KNOW which route this anime is gonna take. Wait..I think we don’t know. Everyone thought Juinichi would end up with Yuuhi..So , no rash judgements first.

    Note: Blonde girl is mine. MINE. Mio is also mine.

    K-ON : Azu-nyan as Mio’s Rival in Moe Moe Kyun Battle!

    Photobucket

    I was wondering why Mio isn’t the “Pigtailed Tsundere girl”. I mean , EVERY MOE ANIME HAS TO HAVE A TSURE-PIGTAIL!

    So, the answer came in on episode 09 , where Azu-nyan officially enters the K-On gang. Mio carries 99% of the moe substance of K-on BUT LOOK , a younger , pig-tailed , slightly tsundere came in to the story and competes with MIO’S MOE MADNESS.

    It was unexpected to me. ( since I don’t have any background on the Novel’s plot )

    So, we have Senpai Tsundere and Kohai Tsundere. Well, this will be fun. Of course, fanart is just starting to grow for Azu-nyan. I doubt she could compete in Mio’s popularity. But still, you never know. Sawako sensei has been applying Moe armor on her lately. AND THAT’S JUST HER FIRST ( Official )APPEARANCE ON THAT EPISODE AND SHE BOMBARDED US WITH MOE EQUIPMENT AND GENSTURES.

    You decided, my fellow otakus!!!

    Sorry. The Haruhi-chan series still continues. I made a mistake. That was just my assumption that when they are gonna release the DVDs , it’s over. Sorry. >.<

    Episode 21 and 22 have been released at Kadokawa’s channel already. Enjoy.
