Giant Killing - 07
  In my experience, you can really divide sports series into three categories. The first is the typical shounen, and usually the most boring: a band of underdog kids trains hard and wins in an over the top fashion against all odds. Then there’s the realistic type, like what Ookiku Furikabutte...

Summer Season Preview
  Okay, a few statistics first: this season has 18 tv-series. In comparison, the previous season had 31 of them while the past winter-season had 17. Out of these 18, there are five sequels. Nine (!) shows are going to focus a lot on moe and fanservice. Yeah it’s going to be another dry and meagre...

  Interesting to see that as the team keeps winning more, we get to see more and more of their family members. This episode showed a ton more parents and siblings who came by to support the lead characters. It’s an excellent way to flesh them out, and I’m glad that with such a large cast...

  Team building. I like how this series uses the quiet moments in between the matches in order to do this, rather than scheduling in a random episodic adventure somewhere. A lot of stuff happened in this episode, and it immediately started with the message that the opposing team that the lead characters...

April Summary
  Before this season started, I called it the “season of opportunities”, and it turned out to be exactly that. There is a ton of potential, there are a lot of series about adults and only a very tiny percentage is the usual crap we get at the start of each season. Provided that all of the show grab...

  And so the first match that did not have Mihashi at the centre has ended, and even though it’s mostly been used as building and warming up, it still was a fun and interesting game to start off the second season with. Mihashi works surprisingly well as a side-character (which I guess is a trait...

Impressions: Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei , Giant Killing, Ookiku Furikabutte
 Well, I’m back after my exam-month break, ready to tackle some new anime series.  After waiting a bit for first impressions to start popping in, I ended up picking three series to try out at this relatively early point in the season.  Ookiku Furikabutte, of course, I was going to follow anyways...

Big Windup!/Ookiku Furikabutte – The Only Way to Watch Baseball
 So with the second season of Ookiku Furikabutte – or Big Windup! – finally here I decided to write my review for season 1. I really fucking loved it. It’s an extremely well done sports series that avoids the problem that almost all shows of this genre run into but it’s also an...

Review: ONE OUTS – Nobody wins, but I! (ワンナウツ)
  The main protagonist, and also the best character in this anime. The end of an era beckons, as the long-reigning ‘Anime of the Year 2008’ title holder Wolf and Spice has finally been deposed from its throne. After nearly two years, the wolf girl has finally been swatted away out from the baseball...

Giant Killing - 04
  The first real match of the show, and the creators have really shown that they know how to write one. It’s not the kind of match that stands out in terms of technical excellence, like with Ookiku Furikabutte. Instead, they’re all focused on getting the best out of the characters. While...

  It’s interesting how the past two episodes have subverted a plot device that often caused the baseball series with mediocre matches to write themselves into a corner: why not let the big hitter walk? It’s the result of trying to make the storytelling too shounen, and have everything end...

My collection of short anime reviews

Review: Cross Game (クロスゲーム)
  Is this guy the main male protagonist of this anime? I’ve chosen Cross Game as the next anime to be reviewed in this blog over the final season of Nodame Cantabile, mainly because I want to wait until its 12th episode was aired and released. A 2009 anime, naturally this anime will compete with ‘Anime...

  Another excellent episode, three episodes in and Giant Killing still is able to consistently entertain with its excellent chemistry. I love how, instead of trying to play as nice as possible, the coach seeks conflict. Now that Murakoshi isn’t allowed to take the lead anymore, the hierarchies...

Angel Beats - 03
  Let’s play a little thought experiment: suppose that instead of what she is now, Yurippe instead had brown hair, was a former construction-worker, had a brother who was a fired salary man, this series took place on Mars instead of a high school, and an ultra-powerful talking robot with a ditzy...

Ookiku Furikabutte - 28
  And so it has begun: the next one of the gruelingly long baseball matches of this series. However, that’s exactly the reason why they stand out: the creators skip hardly any of the pitches. Even the unimportant innings are fully animated. It really makes the matches much more unpredictable than...
