Marathon through several of the summer anime, all the while thinking about Otakon later this week. Watched through several anime, Aoi Hana, Needless, and Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.
Aoi Hana is definitely going to be something I will continue to watch. The pacing of the story is definitely slice of life. I have never read the manga, so as far as the first episode goes, it pushes the fact that Fumi is already starting to question her sexuality. This is a very realistic story, and something I enjoy.
Needless another clone of Gurren Lagann, down to the ridiculous attack phrases, art style, and Kamina look similarities. I really got tired of Gurren Lagann style and have no wish to see any more of this over the top style, so I dropped the anime after sitting with gritted teeth through two episodes.
After watching Cyborg She, I decided to recant my reasoning for watching Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. So I watched the first episode, and is intrigued at how they’re going to extend something I normally see in movies as a climax to something that is anime. Emo-adolescent girl realizes that her world is going to fall apart after an Earthquake rips through Odaiba, Tokyo.
Canaan – what a confusing first episode for the anime, artistic, but definitely visually inspiring. Still wondering if I should drop it or not.. who knows, but really cool gun action and scenes of the festival.
