Sudden alarm about YuYuYu
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Twitter killed animeblogging and delivered us this: Kurogane: “I’m sure all these Madoka similarities I’m seeing in #yuyuyu is just my own hyperactive imagination.” Mike (of Anime Diet): “At least this one was relatively competent. Looking at you #wixoss#yukiyuna may be...

Bloggers on 2014 Autumn
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The season opening summaries start to pop up. Jason Miao’s Thin Slicing feels like he’s tired of the gig. But it’s still there, like clockwork or J.P.’s end-of-year poop post. Peter S. stepped up his game. He posted a comprehensive and informative series of 6 sections (exh.1,...

The End of Barcode Kanojo
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The following announcement was posted at the official webpage (which is certain to disappear soon too, so there’s no need to link it) — English language version: [Important] Service Closing Announcement We would like to deeply thank you all for continuing to use Barcode Kanojo Regretably,...

Girl Friend BETA 01
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The Girlfriend (Kari) was on my season’s list, but not very high, and I would not get to it so soon if I did not feel rebelous about animeblogging authority. Results are somewhat unclear The 01 is far from hitting it out of the park. However, it was watcheable, with a few caveats. The biggest...

Nigorimasen resets
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  A couple of days ago Calaggie suffered a loss of blog contents. It happens from time to time, most notably on my blogroll Omo-no-mono and H.C.Staff went through resets. I used to rage about that heavily. It’s one thing to have someone steal your cookie at a WiFi, or even a password — it...

SDB on Twintails
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Looks like Ore Twintail ni Narimasu 01 was pretty good. And: This director also did OreImo, which I didn’t watch (Eeew!) but a lot of people liked. It was popular enough to get a sequel. Siscon is too much for me. I don’t usually like switch hitters, either, but I think I can tolerate this...

Omo on iM@S Movie
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Question: why are you complaining about that Million Live is being advertised in the Idolm@ster Movie ..? I suspect there’s a certain disappointment about the opportunity costs. ML is not popular, so every screen second Namco is using to cram its characters down our throats is a second lost to...

Nozaki-kun ends
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  A beneficiary of quick off-season watch on legal streaming, Nozaki-kun was an honest comedy that used the meta premise as an excuse for a character study. And it made me laugh uproarously quite a few times. Liked: Yes Rewatch: Yes, like SYD

Reverse Thieves on Barakamon
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Here we get a proper review, the kind that gets somewhat rare nowadays (certainly Jonathan didn’t indulge readers with one). Here’s just one graf: The most fascinating part of the series is probably the more realistic approach to the creative process. While there are certainly dramatic liberties...

Tappan on Barakamon
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  And so: The ending is sort of heartwarming, but not too heartwarming. That would leave room for a sequel if they get the money for one. I’m sort of conflicted about the sequel business. The track record of such sequels is mixed. For example, I think Honey and Clover received a good sequel (although...

Evirus on Aldnoah.Zero
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Karmaburn: Aldnoah.Zero was far and away the best show from Summer 2014. I know a lot of viewers disagree with this opinion, but I thoroughly enjoyed all of its episodes. I didn’t watch it myself, but going by other reflections, the above very much reminds me about a scene from coinseasonal Nozaki-kun,...

Nozaki-kun begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  This post comes a day after Tappan posts the ender, but of course I actually started a few days back. Already finished 7 episodes, even. In general, I’m not enthusiastic about “meta” genre, where the setting is the making of anime or manga. Creators of such work seem lazy, like social...

Joshiraku rewatch
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  For some reason I keep rewatching it raw. Of course, I use pirated raws for convenience’s sake, although I have the R2 DVDs. Anyhow, I understand perhaps 10%, so I would be hard pressed to point out the reason. Oh, wait. It was predicted in the end-bracket post. UPDATE: Don, too.

iM@S Cinderella Girls PV(2)
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The new PV is on YouTube (h/t Beveridge) and includes new footage (with spoilers). It is not officially numbered, but I consider it 2nd after the first one that was suddenly named a PV a month after its release. Shiburin, apparently, wears a certain necklace at all times, even with a tie! Its pendant...
