Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)

Hadigirl minus
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  I ran through all 10 available episodes, and a thought occured to me: why bother with all the somewhat slightly animated manga thing? Just scan manga, and have the cast read it aloud, voila. Alas, it’s not so simple. Manga has speech balloons, which this quasi-animated manga thing does not. It...

Evirus on Chaika
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  In a season’s summary: Thankfully, Chaika succeeds wonderfully in its execution. The fights are consistently good, and the characters endearing enough to draw the viewer’s sympathy. One standout in particular, Fredrica, can attribute her character’s draw almost entirely to the way...

Kawai-sou ends
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  And so, marathoned in 3 days, it ends so quickly: a series that I seriously meant to suspend in the beginning. Notes that I penciled at ep.1 dripped with scorn, like in “so, it’s a story of yet another fine young man thinking with his penis”. Suffering of poor Shiratori left me too...

GochiUsa ends
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  It was all right, but overdone at times. Perhaps even way overdone, and at many times. I had to resort to fast-forward. On the upside, nobody was as annoying as characters of Ichigo Mashimaro, and so I managed to finish the series. And then of course Rize is #1. Although, personally, I liked Aoyama-sensei...

Avatar on Kawai-sou
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Andy engages into pointed critique: Kawai Complex: A fun main romance plot buried under a steaming pile of cliched secondary characters. By the time I had gotten to the end of this, for the meager payoff on offer, I’d slogged through episode after episode of masochist jokes, virgin jokes, slut...

Bokura wa Minna Kawai-sou begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  The first thing about Kawai-sou that I noticed was how astonishingly beautiful it was. The second thing I noticed was how Ritsu didn’t look like a woman. The third thing I noticed was a suspicious isomorphy between its supporting characters and that of Mahoraba. We have the same crazy novelist,...

Date A Live cast
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Went to ANN to check who voiced “Princess” (CV: Marina Inoue), and suddenly found that they cast Kotono Mitsuishi. UPDATE: Sadly, I had to explain this. Obi-Wan is saying: “Now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. A long time.”

Hadigirl begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Hadigirl opened to non-subscribers at Crunchyroll, so I took a sample. The first thing about it: it’s not an anime. Instead, it’s a slightly-animated manga with Aya Hirano’s voice. Seiyuu are sure cheap nowadays. Overall it’s horrible, but it’s so adorably bad that I cannot...

Sailor Moon Crystal 01
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Impact of Sailor Moon Crystal awoke The Pink Sylphide after more than a year of hiatus and Chris’ post made to give it a try. It seems like a straight-up reboot, and reboot of Kanon was awesome, so But when I saw the puss-in-boots logo, I felt dread. The no-good has-been studio is handling the...

Kanon at Google
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Apparently, an official port exists, but Google refuses to sell it in America. What really makes this eggregious is that Visual Arts do not appear to have a zero-tolerance xenophobic stance like Minori. I bought Kanon from U.S. iTunes, so there’s no veto problem or rights problem. It’s...

One-week Friends begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  This series sets a record at Ani-nouto by beginning and suspending in 1 minute 30 seconds. The story is simple. Isshyuukan Friends anime is by far the blogging leader this season. I even thought about putting together a zero-ep “bloggers on series” post. But the bloggage is so insanely...

GochiUsa begins
Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  Belive it or not, Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? came very close to being dropped after ep.3. It was much too overdone and saccharine. However, the series gradually righted itself. Sure, things continued to be somewhat simplified, such as when Cocoa was playing with a wire puzze: the outcome was seen...

  Someone asked Evirus if he missed anything noteworthy in several years away from anime. The answer was: I wish I could point to some amazing bit of anime that you missed over the past few years, but nothing really stands out. Oh, there is a lot of material that’s very good and plenty of stuff...

Ani-Nouto (アニ・ノート)
  A mega con report at our mega P’s blog caught my attention with this (among other things): I tried to engage with as many other tables as I could and what I understood was that the table beside us became the DD table. DD stands for “daredemo daisuki” which essentially means “love...
