Knights of Sidonia begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Thanks for effective (if deceptive) advocacy by Mauser, I picked Sidonia no Kishi for a watch on Netflix (dubbed, of course). I have to admit, grudgingly, that it’s not half bad. Grudgingly, because the qustion of Sidonia is the question of 3D: it’s 100% 3D, like the Hollywood flicks. Sadly,...

BRR (Badass Raw Reader) Evolution
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I had “大阪万博”, conventionally known as “Osaka World Fair”, for about three years, unread. Then, I picked it up a few days ago, and surprise! I can read it well enough to enjoy it {for the curious, it’s a compendum of tributes by famous manga artists, and they are...

Danna-san wo Nanka Wakaranai
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  As mentioned previously, I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying — on easy streaming at Crunchyroll — ended the only title that we followed in-season, despite the 3-minute format. It was surprisingly gentle despite the otaku humour – a delicate balance that Denki-gai didn’t...

The 2015 Summer’s Invastion of Shorties
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  A cursory look at RandomC season preview (h/t Chizumatic) reveals an unusually great number of short-format series.[1] Seems like the new fad, and I’m not a fan. It’s not like they have to be bad. The PuPiPo was amazing, for example. The TeeKyuu stands alone. AIURA was an animation tour...

Asami Takano
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  UPDATE: More informed people identified this as a case of name collision in the ANN database. The other case I was trying to remember could be the same as well. So, I was perusing seiyuu profiles, when Wait, I’m not Hashi-hime and this is not my schtick. However, someone observed on Twitter that...

Calaggie on Momono-san
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Back when "Mahoraba Notebook" page was still updated — obviously before "Anime Notebook" existed — Momo-chan received a special mention, like so: By all rights, Megumi Momono is not my kind of girl. She is a drunk, free-roller with no compass. I don’t fall for the...

A public service message from Sensei-chan
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Some parts of the Denki-gai manga are outstanding, like ch.44. Some are so-so, even poor (anime creators had a good sense to maneuver around some of them, in particular Tai). The ch.44 is in v.8, which I just ordered at Amazon.co.jp. It would never occur to me to do, if I did not read the scanlations....

CKS on Euphonium
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Gushes (emphasis mine): Sound! Euphonium: This has become the smash hit of the season for me and a strong contender for one of my shows of the year. It continues to be great in many ways; its collection of characters, its excellent directing, how willing it is to tell the story with small things and...

Nova on Cinderella Girls 01-13
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I didn’t think he’d stay with it to the end, but have a look at that: The show’s biggest issues revolved around the character cast. The New Generations girls were the only ones given a proper introduction, which would have been okay if they’d actually been the lead trio as I expected....

Bloggers on Shirobako
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Ani-nouto was remiss in its core mission recently: observing what everyone else is blogging, especially about the anime Author himself is not watching. Perhaps we’re burning out. Still, it’s hard not to notice that Shirobako is gunning for the anime of the season, if critical acclaim is...

Denki-Gai, a visual retrospective
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Let’s just put it out of the way by stating that indeed, when the creators tried to ramp up the perversion factor, the anime got awful. There’s nothing wrong with poking fun at society’s rigid mores, but you cannot be clumsy and crude doing it if you want a good result. Here’s...

Not a podcast again
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I find a mildly intriguing podcast once in a while, and I wonder: how do people find time to listen to them? Must be commuting. Unfortunately, I work from my bedroom! And in this particular case, I know everything I need to know about that movie from the manga, so nope.

M. LaMoe on the death of literature
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  According to post at Anime Diet, “light novels are the culprit that killed the Japanese traditional literature or “pure literature” as they call it” (he agrees with the statements of Owlguildy to that effect). Personally, I think Murakami killed literature better, but sure. At least...
