  8. Have that one queued up to start watching tonight.
  9. Isuca wasnt what I was expecting, might drop it idk, anyway heres my list:
    Akatsuki no Yona (continuation from last season)
    Saenai Heroine no Sadate-kata
    Shinmai Maou no Testament
    Juuou Mujin no Fafnir
    Absolute Duo
    This years winter animes dont look outstanding for me, but still enjoying. Im more hyped for this springs animes when they come out. High School DxD BorN, Grisaia are the top ones for me to watch this spring.
  10. I am sooooo with you on DxD and Grisaia. DxD is my all time favorite
  11. ok, Akatsuki no Yona turned out to be really good, (an anime that continued from fall) It had 20 episodes in as of now and going strong. The first few episodes of this anime were choppy i would say, due to the story could have gone for the worse, but it evened into a steadily progressing anime with great storyline, detailed character designs, and the soundtrack, like OMG so good! The soundtracks are mostly instrumental and with beautiful traditional japanese music. It flows so perfectly in which the anime it is in. I would recommend watching this if your into Feudal Japan and shogun. It does have romance in this also.
  12. So far:
    Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu - One of the absolute best animes i have ever watched. If you're into gore, supernatural and mystery this one is definitely for you. 9.5/10
    Tokyo Ghoul vA - So far it's been alright, Season 1 was better though, we will see if my opinion changes within the last 4 episodes. 7/10
    Isuca - It's got a fun concept and is overall enjoyable, the censoring bothers me though. If you want a supernatural ecchi romance with some action this one is a decent 6.5/10
    Absolute Duo - Absolutely (haha) love it. The concept is amazing, i love the animations, the story doesn't progress to fast and it keeps you interested! The music is also wonderful! Love the OP! 8.5/10
    Seikein Tsukai No World Break - Me being a giant fan of Harem animes, along with action, have found yet another one to add to the book of awesomeness. Easy 9/10 for me. Just wish the animation was better.
    I have more but that's all for now! Cya soon! :-)
  13. Alot of these anime are already on my list so I will just add some I haven't got yet.
  14. I haven't done this before, but I'll be doing write-ups for each anime I've watched and has ended this season. :-)

    Absolute Duo
    This anime was sort of an addon to the season filled with a bunch to watch. The story never goes into the origin or purpose of what a "blaze" is or why they have to partner with others to get stronger. Most of the questions you gather as you watch this anime remain throughout the series. You do not particularly fall in love or hate any real characters in this anime, simply because there is not enough backstory to gain an impression either way. In the end this anime isn't really anything special, it's just there. The animation quality is pretty blah, but I did like the music used throughout the anime. This series needs another season or two to explain more about what happened to these characters. Maybe a prequel, but I'm sure they expect you to simply read the manga and go from there. Not me though, sorry :-P.

    Recommendation: Watch it if you have the time, otherwise ignore.
    Rating: 4.5 out of 10

  15. Hmmmm, you make me want todo my own write-ups now lol. I like this review, I had higher expectations for Absolute Duo, but they failed to deliver. the animation was one of the worst aspects of this anime. It felt very slow for an action type anime, never felt epic.
  16. Twas poop. I almost gave up at episode 10, but figured I had come too far lol.

  17. While i will agree that it does need to get another season or 2 to explain more, i still felt that the anime was overall very interesting, those questions you speak of are what keep you interested. :p I liked the concept of a Blaze and how having a Duo is what makes them truly stronger and such. It was a unique anime in that way and i think it was executed fairly well. ^_^

    Im really loving Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata, I feel like every otaku should watch this lol. I love how they stuck a visualization of what it would be like if you were viewing an Otaku's life in an anime. I like all the references to other animations and novels I saw in his room. I really enjoy this anime. Katoooooooooooooo!! Shes so amazingggg! o.o.

    OH and one more thing... look at this if you guys noticed this before... (Left is Grisaia Michiru)(Right is Eriri from Saenai)
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    If you noticed in the animes, they look almost alike just drawn differently lol, and they both have a tsundere attitude, Michiru has more than Eriri tho
