Chu Feng: B.E.E

So there’s no actual God Eater episode this week, which makes me really sad, but at least they didn’t waste an actual episode on fillers. I was actually surprised by this one. I thought for sure that I would end up hating this. In the end I found this rather watchable.

Chu Feng B.E.EI mean, the artwork is nothing special. It looks alright, I suppose. The characters look nothing special but at least the mechs and the tech looks alright. Fact is; I have seen a whole lot worse than this. That’s for sure.

The story is questionable. It’s a really dark story from the looks of it and I definitely like the action. People are getting shot and crushed all over the place. I just find the story questionable since the first episode didn’t have a big impact. I just know there was a hostage situation going on but I have no idea why. It’s hard to know what’s going on right now.

This is fifteen minutes of action-filled sci-fi anime. I’m not going to say that it looks promising. It doesn’t. The artwork is alright and the story is, at this time at least, pretty questionable. You’ll just have judge this one for yourselves. I for one will be giving the second episode a try.

Plot Summary: In 2017, a group of genius scientists achieve a remarkable breakthrough in bioengineering. However, all the new technologies are put into military use, beginning a new round of arms race. Vanguards, as the most significant achievement of the modern bioengineering and the most advanced weapon, are widely utilized in the race. Although vanguards are exceptionally combat-effective, their life expectancy is shortened by the nanomachines they use. Usually, most vanguards will retire from the army after a number of years in service.

The heroine Liuli has also consumed too much of her lifespan after executing missions for a long time. With only 380 days left in her life, Liuli receives a new mission, to rescue a hostage being held in a civilian facility. It is without doubt a difficult mission for a vanguard like Liuli, who only knows how to kill and battle. However, Liuli obediently decides to accept the mission in the end.

During the mission, Liuli surprisingly finds that the man who holds the hostage was once a vanguard. The former vanguard Zhongrong Zhou cries and asks the government to hand over the son of Eden. As a vanguard, Liuli feels deep contempt against Zhou. To eliminate the scum of the vanguards, a battle between two vanguards begins…

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei Herz!

People are extremely ecstatic over this show. A lot of people don’t know that this was based on an erotic novel and think that it’s all innocent, when in actually it comes pretty close to porn. What you don’t know won’t harm you, I guess?

Fate kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei HerzThe artwork is alright I suppose. A lot of good studios have been working on these spin-off series. To me it just seems like it’s more fan service than anything else though. It’s not nearly as good as the regular Fate series.

I only really watched half of the first season to be honest. The story simply didn’t interest me. It was pretty funny at the start, but I soon got bored with it and I could tell that my image of the Fate series was getting worse.

Fate die-hards will watch this no matter what I say here. Perverts too. Unfortunately, I simply respect the Fate series far too much to watch this. It just doesn’t measure up.

Plot Summary: Based on the Fate/Kaleid Liner Prisma☆Illya 2wei! manga by Hiroshi Hiroyama, itself a spin-off of the Fate/stay night erotic visual novel by Type-Moon.

Venus Project: Climax

This is absolutely not for me. There’s too much singing and too much farfetched nonsense that I could never get in to.

Venus Project ClimaxI suppose the artwork is alright. I think? I mean, the characters look pretty nice, but the level of detail leaves a bit to be desired. And the music? Not very good.

This story simply doesn’t interest me. Girls start to sing and suddenly mechs materialize? Come on… It’s like slapping all Gundam and similar series in the face.

I will not be following this and I see no reason why I should recommend anyone otherwise.

Plot Summary: In a not too distant future, Japan’s data devices and video technology have been progressing to new heights, and people are abuzz about a new form of entertainment — Formula Venus. In Formula Venus or “F-V,” the chosen top idols battle in live performances with their willpower, skills, and all their experience gained.

Makura no Danshi

This was the absolute worst. I hate the person who came up with this, I hate the studios who worked on this, I hate the network(s) that aired this and I hate myself for actually watching four minutes of it. What a dreadful anime short.

Makura no DanshiI will admit that the artwork is good for an anime short. It’s surprisingly detailed, even though it’s this bad a show…

The problem is the story; there is none. All I saw was some gay teenager talking about tight butts and wanting a guy to sleep with him. Subtlety is dead I guess…

I cannot recommend this. If homosexuality was contagious, and let the record show that I think it is, then this is definitely one of the ways to catch it. My god…

Plot Summary: Featuring 12 “Makura no Danshi” (pillow boys), all full of distinctly individual personalities and each catering to viewers who like a certain “type.” The boys all live in the same town underneath a starry sky. Each of the “Makura no Danshi” will star his own weekly episode as they “sleep beside you and whisper.”

God Eater

Now this is what I call interesting! I have to admit that I’m having one or two problems with the artwork, but I think I can get passed that.

God EaterThe artwork itself looks good, but the characters look a bit strange. It’s like they went for 2.5D but stopped shortly after they left. It’s like 2.2D quality. I think I can get used to it, but I would’ve preferred if they had gone a different way with it.

The story really interests me. It’s not unique or amazing, but I feel as though the protagonist will be quite the little rebel when it comes to obeying orders. I like that.

I think it’s safe to recommend God Eater. I like what I saw and I will definitely be watching for the time being.

Plot Summary: In the year 2071, the Far East is ruled by angry gods. 20 years ago unknown life forms called “Oracle cells” begin their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth. Humanity both fears them and reveres them as “aragami.” They are immune to all weapons and the mankind’s numbers continue to dwindle. The last bastion of hope is the newly developed “God Arcs” weapons that utilize Oracle cells to fight back. The weapons wielders band together into an elite force dubbed “God Eaters.”

Prison School

A lot of people really waited for this one. I happen to know the manga. I read quite a few chapters of it before I got bored and stopped reading. This should basically be categorized as hentai. It’s the lowest possible class of anime; 99% fan service.

Prison SchoolThe artwork is alright. The characters all look quite interesting, which is why I started reading it in the first place, but I feel as though they kind of screwed up with the characters’ voices. They don’t sound like I had imagined them.

The story is just one big loop. A group of boys make a mistake and become imprisoned in their own school by a group of cocky girls and later that role gets reserved. There’s no end to it. That’s why I got bored with all that pointless fan service and I eventually stopped reading.

I personally don’t think this. It’s for that reason that I don’t recommend this. It’s a cheap show that focusses more on fan service than overall quality.

Plot Summary: There was a time when the Hachimitsu Private Academy was a revered and elite all-girls’ boarding school on the outskirts of Tokyo but a recent policy revision is allowing boys into the student body. On his first day, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he’s one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Completely overwhelmed by the thousands of girls on campus, the few boys find that their situation is less than ideal.

Danchigai

This is a very watchable anime short. It’s definitely worth spending three minutes a week on. In fact, some people might actually enjoy it.

DanchigaiThe artwork is good for an anime short. In fact, I think it’s worthy of a full-length show. I was solf as soon as I saw Uzuki and her little friend.

I don’t know how good the story will be since it’s just an anime short, but like I said; it’s worth it just to watch three minutes of it every week.

I do recommend this for when you are waiting for other episodes to finish downloading. I know I will be following this for the time being.

Plot Summary: Haruki is the only boy of five siblings. He and his level-headed older sister Mutsuki, his difficult younger sister Yayoi, and mischievous twin sisters Uzuki and Satsuki all live together in an apartment complex.

Kurayami Santa

No. this may have been good back in the day before colour television was invented, but now it’s just an eyesore.

Kurayami SantaThe artwork just doesn’t hold a candle to today’s standard. Some people might enjoy the nostalgic sight of it, but I simply cannot appreciate it.

I am told that the story is quite amusing. It’s an anime short, so I seriously have my doubts about it. Something that was “good” in the early eighties may not be so good today.

I simply cannot recommend this. Your average anime fan will probably not appreciate this. Maybe an older generation of anime fans…

Plot Summary: Set in 1960s Kyushu, the story centers around Santa, a familiar from Hell who is charged with maintaining the border between Hell and the human world. Santa’s mission has him crossing paths with many humans and supernatural creatures.
