Dragon Ball Super

It’s back! Millions of fans all over the world must be foaming at the mouth right about now! I love the Dragon Ball series so much! I watched several episodes every week. I refused to be home late so that I wouldn’t miss a single episode. I’m feeling so nostalgic right now…

Dragon Ball SuperNobody would ever knock Dragon Ball for its artwork. It’s sublime. The attacks, the characters and the level of detail; it’s all so incredibly good. You could pick out any of the Saiyans out of a hundred character line-up within seconds. They are simply that iconic.

Dragon Ball Super continues the story after Kid Buu was defeated and before Videl got pregnant and gave birth to Pan. I am loving that! I also love the fact that we’re going to see more of that purple rabbit guy that we’ve seen in the latest movie. I don’t mind seeing him as the new bad guy.

I definitely recommend this. You’d be a fool not to watch this. I even have old Dragon Ball trading cards from when I was a kid in an old map. I am truly happy that Dragon Ball is back and I will be watching this with a huge, child-like smile on my face every week.

Plot Summary: After defeating Majin Buu, life is peaceful once again. Ordered by Chi-chi to earn money, Goku works even as he wants to train even more. Meanwhile, Goten, about to become a brother-in-law to Videl, sets out on a journey with Trunks to find her a present.

Rokka no Yuusha

Okay, okay… I think I’ve have a good enough grasp on this show to write a decent review. I hope. Quite interesting that fairly new studios manage to do such a good job when you compare their anime to some of the works from older, well-known studios.

Rokka no YuushaI am not going to say that this is better. The artwork looks pretty good and I am already quite fond of the characters and the level of detail, but I feel as though things are only going to get better if I keep watching it. Can it actually improve?

I also think that this is a story that I could follow from start to finish. It seems really interesting and I’m a sucker for “chose one” stories, even if there are seven of them. I think this will keep me entertained for quite a while.

I do recommend this. I seems interesting and I have high hopes for it. The story also has a good enough foundation for me to say that this could really turn out to be something amazing.

Plot Summary: When the Majin awoke from the depths of darkness, the deity of fate chose six heroes and bequeathed them with the power to save the world. Adlet, a boy who proclaims himself the strongest on Earth, was selected among the Rokka no Yūsha (Braves of the Six Flowers), and he goes to the rendezvous point — but seven have gathered there. The heroes suspect that someone among the seven is the enemy, and the initial suspicion falls on Adlet.

Durarara!!x2 Ten

And it’s back once again. The second part of season two. I don’t quite understand why season two has to be divided into three parts (part three will air next year), but I’m pretty sure it’s a profit-related issue. They probably squeeze more money out of it this way.

Durarara!!x2 TenNow, it goes without saying that the artwork is good. Durarara has been created by well-known studios ever since season one. It doesn’t surprise me that the artwork looks so good. The sales figures and the ratings pretty much say it for me.

I’ll be honest; I have not been following these series. I have seen season one and a few episodes of season two, but something about this just didn’t really stick with me. I kept getting distracted and my focus was never really there. I guess the story just never really had much of an impact on me.

I can recommend this to all supernatural fans. Do you like super powers and everything related to that genre? Go check it out. Be sure to watch the first season though.

Plot Summary: A half a year after the the war of the Yellow Scarves, Ikebukuro has begun to return to normal. High school is in session, Izaya is back to scheming, and Celty, the legendary headless rider, is still chased by the police as she rides through the town. But a few unusual things have slipped into the mix. Gradually, thanks to outside elements, Ikebukuro will be thrown back into chaos.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX

I’m not going to dance around it; I never really understood why this show got a second season. I certainly don’t understand why it has a third season. From what I read both the first and second season did pretty mediocre when it came to ratings and sales.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear GXI’m not going to completely destroy it. The artwork does look rather nice. The characters all look pretty good and the level of detail is alright. I would slap myself for being a liar if I said that it’s all bad.

In my case it’s the story that prevents me from watching. I honestly don’t like that singing nonsense in order to gain power. It’s ridiculous. I don’t want to watch a group of girls sing and fight cheap-looking enemies. Not my cup of tea.

I cannot recommend this. I just can’t. Both the previous seasons were rated “okay” and the sales were also “okay”. That’s just not good enough for me.

Plot Summary: After the frontier incident, everyone who knew the circumstances believed the Noise were gone and the pain they caused was at an end. But a new conflict approached unseen. In the Yokohama Harbor Oosan-bashi Pier, a new pattern is detected that is similar to the Noise. A combat group wielding mysterious technology stands in the way of Hibiki and the others. When she hears of this enemy of unprecedented strength, Tsubasa hurries back home from England. But the Symphogear users see no opening to counterattack are forced into a difficult fight. In this situation of extreme disparity, the battle for the song that will end the world begins.

Aoharu x Kikanjuu

This is going to be a tough one… I feel as though this is one of those shows that will interest me for the first few weeks before I get tired of it and gradually stop watching. I guess the first episode didn’t really “wow” me in the end.

Aoharu x KikanjuuI have very little complaints about the artwork though. I like the fact that we’ve got such a boyish heroine. It never occurred to me that Hotaru was a girl until it was mentioned by her friend. That was pretty cool.

But hey, it’s one of those shows about toy guns and about fanatic characters that like playing with them. The first episode was nice, but like I said; I feel that I’m going to lose interesting after a few episodes.

This will be something for you to check out. I don’t think it’s anything special but I certainly don’t dislike it. If they manage to keep things interesting then it’ll definitely be worth watching.

Plot Summary: Hotaru Tachibana is a girl disguised as a boy. Through strange circumstances she finds herself drawn into the world of survival games by a host, Masamune Matsuoka. The two form a team with ero-manga artist Tohru Yukimura and aim to be the be the best in Japan.
