It's been an entire year since I've last done a "What am I watching?" post and that's because I've been avoiding seasonal anime so I could catch up on my backlog a little bit better. This all changed with The Promised Neverland, though and, admittedly, having something to look forward to watching every week really did wonders for my mood as well, as trivial as that sounds, so I've decided to get back into the swing of seasonal anime! Woo!
You know, thinking about it now, I can't believe I'm actually writing about this anime, but hey, it's the eve of Halloween and that's my justification for doing it. Thank you, Halloween. Pupa is one of those anime that is just...unforgettable. I don't mean that in a matter of praise either.
The Kuroshitsuji movie is based off the Luxury Liner arc of the manga. I was quite excited to finally watch the movie, but, unfortunately, it wasn't what I expected at all. I'm assuming a part of my dissatisfaction with the movie comes from the fact that the Book of Atlantic arc isn't exactly a favourite of mine in the manga, but I also found a couple of things about the movie that really annoyed me, regardless of my preferences from the manga.
Imagine a world where humans and demi-humans co-exist. They go to work, they go to school... I have seen a lot of shows, that just don't go into detail about the characters. They introduce them and that's that. That's their personality, we're going to stick with that for 12 episodes with absolutely no development whatsoever. This is where Demi-chan is different.
This season, for me, will probably work like the last, where I explicitly said I wouldn't be watching any seasonal anime. Last season, it was mostly due to finishing university, graduating and getting ready to start working. For this season, my reasoning is just the mere fact I don't really have the time to keep up with seasonal anime. And regional differences.
The more I read the synopsis for this show, the more it blows my mind. What started off as a bit of meme eventually turned out to be quite a good comedy show and, well, I was definitely surprised. Although the synopsis sounds like three shows put together, it works. And although the show doesn't get the greatest of starts, I'm here to tell you why you should at least give it a chance.
It's that time of the season where I reflect on the shows I began watching this season! I thought Winter 2018 had gone quick, but Spring seems to have gone a lot quicker? Not only that, but I've actually managed to stay up-to-date with some series! (Makes a change, huh?)
Creativity is, of course, subjective. What makes something a masterpiece to someone, may be a weird artsy disaster for someone else. If a single collection of anime was to make this divide apparent - it's Genius Party.
I honestly didn't have many hopes for this show. Can you blame me when you see a synopsis like that? Despite that, however, Mahou Shoujo Ore is by far becoming one of my favourite shows from this season.
Personally, I like things that are short and sweet and things that simply make you smile to yourself and squeal with joy. Baja no Studio is all of this.
