Chou Jikuu Seiki Orguss

As I started to play SRW Z, I wanted to watch as many shows featuring in the game as possible. Notably, an online friend told me that the game’s plot revolved massively around Orguss’s plot, a 29 years old, 35 episodes show about time and dimension travel. That’s how I decided to watch it, and I finally finished it this week. It was a really great show, and one of the best time/dimension travel stories I’ve ever seen along Back To The Future, Sliders and Quantum Leap. This is the kind of show I want to show to my kids. Everything was just so awesome. I got teary eyed two times when watching the two last episodes.

 

Each other’s spoiler safety

Maybe I’m too nice. Maybe I’m trying to look nice. But when discussing anime, I often avoid spoilers, not for my own person, but for the others that could see the discussion. These days on IRC, I keep asking people to use spoilers tags, not for me, but for others who maybe do mind getting spoiled. IT’s not because a show is twenty years old that you should spoil it either.

“Yureru Hearto!! Ikemen designer Taiketsu!!” – “A wavering heart!The battle of the hot designers”
Since the Prism Stone and Dear Crown shops are right next to each other, President Asechi Kyouko decides to organize an event with the two designers Sho and RIVAL OTOKO Yun-Su to make some money. They will designs outfits respectively for Prizmmy and the Korean girls in the next show, plus 2 outfits that Aira will have to choose from. Continue reading

Hagure Yuusha no Esthetica: The show 2 esthetical 4 U

Replace the staff with a hammer and you get City Hunter.

Hagure Yuusha no Esthetica is one of those shows that some people would dismiss as crapon first sight, judging the book by it’s cover. Needless to say I was interested ever since I heard about it and started watching it. It was awesome. Akatsuki was awesome. Oosawa Akatsuki. One of the most badass lady-killer since Saeba Ryo. I’ve been loving every single minute of it. Another good point is the fact that the OP makes sense as soon as you watch episode 2. The show managed to introduce it’s characters, factions and devices pretty fast. The one thing I hate about it is that the show went for the “go read the LN” ending and that no one is translating the LN in English. I’ll never know what happens next.

Also, what’s with this bus? Except that it’s made for left-hand driving the bus really look like the public transport buses in Paris and the suburbs cities. It even has a real French ad on it for Ricoré. “Entre un ticket choc et un ticket chic, une pause stick?”  I wonder who the hell on the staff decided to do that, and how they heard about the slogan they used. Is it a reference to a slogan used dozens of years ago in an ad of the RATP, the biggest transport company here, about selling their tickets?

Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future – 06

“Memo Memo Kinshi wa Komaru no Desu!!”

Miya forbids Ayami from writing in her memo. Ayami then meets her own Korean rival/ally/best friend Cheong Eun. They go on a date together, and meet a black cat. Ayami is scared of it, as her memo says black cats bring misfortune while Cheong Eun isn’t scared of it. She thinks it’s cute, the hairband they saw at a shop earlier was cute too, she suggest Ayami combines them for the design she’s supposed to make.

Ayami makes a Black Cat design for the next show, where she’s the center. Everything goes well . She manage to get into the Prism Act tunnel thing but doesn’t manage to do a Prism Act.

After the show she decides to give her memo to Cheong Eun and start a new one.

When they were talking about the black cat, Ayami had an unusual grave voice,  that was hilarious. So yeah I finally restarted watching Pretty Rhythm. I’m planning to do quick summaries for the eps I missed and maybe some more detailed ones if I catch up.

Accelareted World

Accel World changes OP at episode 14 like many other shows. Thank God it did. I know we’re in 2012, and it’s harder and harder to make original things, but man. I barely ever skip Openings, but I skipped the first one all the time. The music is okay, though whoever composed it should leave the bass alone for a bit. The thing I have have a problem with is the animation sequence. The visuals are way too classical. The only scene missing is the girl in tears with her tears fading away. It feels like I’m rewatching every Opening of all the anime I’ve watched at the same time.

Now, my favorite part of the show is how at the end of every episode, the Ending starts playing before it’s actually over. Ever since watching Gundam Seed, I’ve been a huge fan of this. Another example I can think of are the Ys I OAVs. It makes every episode’s ending so much more impactful. Every show should do it.
