EDIT:

Alright, here’s the real reason: (shamelessly copied from MAL)

Story: 1/10

I’ve never watched an anime with a more pathetic story. The story line feels like the creators decided to pull all their favorite aspects out of all the anime they’ve ever liked and put it into one. There is a weak reference to “deep” connections between these 7 gangs in the anime, but this story is following the main character, Shiro and his cat that turns into a sexy girl randomly. The blue gang is a vigilante police group and one of the members, Kuro, believes that Shiro committed a murder based on this shady cell phone video of Shiro or someone who appears to look like him, committing the crime, and Kuro decides to follow Shiro around at school and become a “transfer student” and cook for Shiro and his cat like he has no real duties. The story line is absolutely horrid and there is nothing great about it.

Art: 10/10

The anime contains the most beautiful art I’ve seen in a lot of anime, but that is the only thing going for it. I am continuing this anime based on the art alone.

Sound: 6/10

It sounds fine.

Character: 1/10

Just like the story line, the characters are pathetic. They are not unique in any way and there is no character depth at all. I feel no emotions or sympathy for any of them. The main character, Shiro, seems to be this aloof high school kid who appears to have some dark side or schizophrenic tendency, but also doesn’t seem to have much care. The cat/girl turns into a human randomly, she has two different colored eyes, and does “cute” things. The red gang seems to be a collection of “tough, cool guys” plus some strange gothic lolita girl. There hasn’t been much on the red gang yet for me to make inferences on them. The vigilante police blue gang includes Kuro, the guy who carries around swords and follows around the main character while the main character tries to prove his innocence. He’s boring and one dimensional, and he carries around a weird briefcase filled with cooking utensils (seriously, wtf). There is a woman in the blue gang, who is dressed in this outfit where her butt hangs out but apparently works in this professional setting.

Overall: 3/10

[Status: dropped]

EDIT 2:

I just watched episode 5 and I am fed up with this series. Still no PLOT, character are acting stupid as hell, so many unneccessary scenes, I feel like I am only wasting my time with this series. F*ck you, GoHands for ruining a potentially awesome series and throwing precious money out of the window because you wasted so much beautiful animation for this miserable effort of a “revolutionary original” anime, which tries too hard to be cool and ultimatively fail in story telling and creating compelling characters.

8/10, I mad.

Fall Anime season Power ranking (Psycho-Pass Ending)

Hello everyone!

Another update for the fall season has finally arrived, this time it’s the Psycho-Pass Ending Namae no nai Kaibutsu or the english translation: Monster with no name.

This song is performed by EGOIST, infamous for doing the Guilty Crown soundtrack, and you people should know by now, that everything related with EGOIST and Supercell is going to kick ass.

I extended the TV-sized a bit by including a “original” segment, but by now, you should know I do this in almost every transcription of mine.

[Namae no nai Kaibutsu]  (difficulty: challenging)

And now for something different.

Instead of making a “fall anime first impression post“, I’ll just post a power ranking of the anime series I am currently following.
Here’s my current watchlist, ordered from my favorite to least favorite:

1. Girls und Panzer – best show ever. Yes, I am completely serious. Ignore the silly premise of the show and don’t take it too seriously, or you’ll spoil your fun. Every character have it’s own charm and they are really likeable. There’s also next to no fanservice, (which I really grew tired of), but instead we have TANK-service to the max. The producers behind GuP have put a lot of effort to create a detailled and authentic setting with tanks. And with Commies fabulous ÜBERMENSCH subs, this show is the perfect show after a long exhausting day. PANZER VOR!

2. Psycho Pass – This show have received a lot of hype before it aired, but it really lived up with it’s expectations. I really like the unique setting and the dark atmosphere in Psycho Pass. And last but not least, Akane reaction faces is priceless.
3. Little busters! – the animation is incredibly lazy sometimes, but well, I am still fan-biased because the Visual Novel is one of my favorite VN’s
4. Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! – extremely solid and very entertaining with god-tier animation – as expected from kyoani, definitely one of the best comedies this season.

5. Shisekai Yori – incredibly intriguing and fascinating, this series is really on eof a kind. And the world building is excellent – the mystery anime of this season.

6. Robotics;Note – the first three episode arc is really boring at some times, but I still have high hopes for this series. There’s so much potential left.

7. Code;Breaker – the underdog of the season. The premise sound like “generic shounen with superpowers“, but the main protagonist is really refreshing and the direction is very good, I didn’t get bored for a second.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – the dropping line – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

8. Zetsuen no Tempest – the series is solid, but it still haven’t won me completely over. Maybe I am too occupied with all those shows listed above, but at least the OST is god-tier.

9. K – I think I know the origin of the anime title. K stands for clusterfuc[K]. four episodes in and I still don’t have any idea which direction this anime is headed. The background art are inhumanly good though…

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – dropped – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

10. BTOOOM! – trying too hard to be dark and edgy. Every character is a psychopath because they have suffered a trauma in the past – or they have been raped and shit. No thanks, Battle Royale is better. Dropped.

11. Magi Yet-another-generic-shounen, only with an arabic setting. I think I just grew tired of shounen. *sighs* Dropped.

12. Sakuraso no Pet no Kanojo – the (obligatory) forced drama of this season. The setting have been done to death already (see honey and clover) and this show offers nothing new. Also, I agree with Zaku here – why are people so fascinated by the sterotype retarded moe girls? Dropped.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – didn’t even bother  – – – – – – – – – – –

13. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Sukitte Ii na yo – I don’t watch shoujo series anymore since it’s ALWAYS frustrating as hell. (misunderstandings, comical relief, love triangle, internal conflict blablabla…). Pre-dropped.

14. Onii-chan dakedo blabla, To love ru darkness – fanservice shit.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – archiving – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hayate no Gotoku S3 – I am still a fan of the series and I’ll marathon it once it finished airing.

JoJo Bizzare’s adventure – might be cool.

Yep, that would cover my Fall anime season 2012 schedule.

Alright, my next project is the Shinsekai Yori ED, I’ll upload it probably on saturday.

See you until then!
