Omo on Locodol
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  If anything, he’s even more positive than other bloggers: The result was for at least a couple weeks I had to really pick and choose what I watch on a Thursday – that’s often the last day I can watch anime freely (as weekend meant partying it up somewhere) and for all of my backlog, I have...

Steelbound on Hanayamata
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Is not enamoured: Did I miss a memo where it was decided that series involving cute girls doing cute things would redefine cute to mean annoying? I was so set to enjoy this series – Madhouse animation of a visually interesting topic combined with a fluffy, probably heart-warming story – because...

SDB on Locodol
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  While scanning quickly to add more boobies to the top rotation he finds: Locodol was a complete waste of time. Not for me; I got 56 grabs out of it. But I can’t imagine anyone watching it and wanting to finish it. “Locodol” is short for “Local Idol” and the idea is that...

Yama no Susume S2 is suspended at Crunchyroll
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The only information thus far (apparently mentioned in a Reddit AMA at unknown URL): lugiamania_CR 31 points 5 hours ago [On around July 18 — Author] The contract details are not quite finalized, but we wanted to clear the rights to at least get the first episode out so we wouldn’t have to...

Dog Days season 3 is coming
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  (h/t @vivio_t) It’s anybody’s guess if they want to get back on track after the filler season 2. I bet they won’t. It’s going to be more nonsense, like extensions of the original Hanaukyou Maid Tai, or what the heck, Zero no Tsukaima. In a funny coincidence, the 2015 Winter...

Steelbound on Studio Ghibli

  In which he demonstrates a superior knowledge of the subject (not sure about the merits of his recommendations, but). Even explains the origins of the “Goro Miyazaki is using computers to destroy anime” meme — it’s Ronia.

Ginban Kaleidoscope
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Due to various circumstances, I watched this on a TV and took no notes. So, here’s what I can remember from this modern fairy tale (if I may borrow the formula from Tappan). When I lampooned the summary of Ginban Kaleidoscope at ANN, I had no idea that I would watch it, let alone like it. But...

PuPiPo
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Although Pixy compared PuPiPo to Haibane Renmei, what he really meant is the progression of the escalation in the story. Watching it, I went like so: 01: A little girl can see ghosts, how cute 04: An adventure in the otherworld, nice 09: Future adults, this is getting interesting 13: Now they are...

Kancolle PV is awful
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Two news items from Kancolle hit recently: 1) anime is delayed into 2015, 2) PV is available. The video in particular took over the Twitter by storm as dozens of surfing montages were shared (static and animated). I managed to stick with the PV for about 2/3 before giving up, so I saw the surfing,...

Locodol 05
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Episode 5 of Locodol feels like a rather clumsy filler, but when I watched girls praying to the lesser-known god, I figured that it needs to be considered from the right angle. I remembered the Stellvia 09, the episode ahead of the Great Mission, where nothing much happened either. The episode’s...

Evirus on Barakamon
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I dropped a quick look at Evirus’ intro and decided that it’s just the anime for me before withdrawing quickly in fear of spoilers. That was a mistake, because having marathoned 5 episodes I went back to read the post and discovered that there’s going to be no ending. Also, there were...

Hashi-hime on Glasslip
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Calls it the season’s favourite: Glasslip – One of the best shows in years, in my opinion (but not in anyone else’s, lol). Riveting performance by newcomer Fukagawa Seria, supported by the dependably excellent Hayami Saori and Taneda Risa. Romance(s); magic; sharp and beautiful flow of...

The death of yosakoi, jazz, and anime
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I wanted to find out if naruko are going to become as popular as Les Paul guitars, but what I found was different. The cold data of Google spells the doom: Basically yosakoi peaked about the same time anime peaked, and was in decline ever since The peaks at June of each year must coincide with the...

Anime Viking on Daisuki
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  This is what happens when you extensively research propaganda and PR declarations by corporate suits and then take them on face value (in particular Shibata’a promises of not strong-arming Crunchy): In other words, Daisuki was meant as a complement to the already existing anime streaming websites....

Locodol begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Here goes the low-pressure watch of the season. I’ll just note one strange thing: the protagonist’s partner, Yukari, is presented as 1) a second edition Tsumugi Kotobuki (beautiful, rich, lesbian), and 2) astonishingly capable idol. On paper it’s a recipy for Mary Sue debacle, but...
