Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan

Is it really just me or are there a lot more anime shorts this season than usual? My god. I’ve seen like half a dozen of them so far and there are still more to come. In fact, I think another one just got released. Why?

Onsen Yousei Hakone-chanI guess this could be considered as one of the watchable anime shorts. The artwork isn’t so bad that it’ll put you off. In fact, it’s actually quite nice for an anime short. That says something.

I’m not going to beat around the bush; there really isn’t much of a story. Not a lot you could do with just three minutes anyway. But hey, you might get a good laugh out of this.

Its three minutes per week. What have you got to lose? You fire it up and watch it and maybe you get a good laugh that makes those three minutes worthwhile. Who knows?

Plot Summary: Hakone is a hot spring spirit who descended to a spa resort on Earth. However, with her long slumber, she looks like a little girl on the outside.The high school boy Tōya stumbles across her at a hot spring and ends up joining Hakone in retrieving her original powers.

Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou

I can only describe this as a big slap in the face to all Attack on Titan fans. Attack on Titan was a stroke of pure genius. A brand new author decided to become a mangaka and struck gold with his first serialization if I am to believe the stories. But this… This is just bad.

Shingeki! Kyojin ChuugakkouI’m not even going to take the artwork seriously. They are just trying to profit as much as they can off of Attack on Titan. It was an international success and I’m sure the second season, which will air sometime next year, will be too, but to make something like this in order to squeeze out more profits… No.

I honestly don’t care about the story. It’s a cheap parody that’s not even written by the original authors or any of the authors that have worked on these series. I read the name somewhere and I’m pretty sure that he/she is a total unknown.

I simply do not have high hopes for this. I won’t even recommend it because I think it might smudge the view I currently have of Attack on Titan, which is something I want to avoid. They did it with shows like Naruto as well and I’m sure that this, much like that Naruto parody, will fail just as hard in the end.

Plot Summary: The parody re-imagines Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and other characters from the original manga as students and teachers at Titan Junior High School.

Haikyuu!! 2

I am not a big volleyball fan. That is why I dropped the first season half-way. There’s just not enough excitement in it. Volleyball, to me, is not even a sport. It’s something you do on the beach with girls to see their breasts bounce. Cheap thrills… That’s what it’s all about.

Haikyuu!! 2That being said, even I could not deny that the artwork’s definitely the real deal. The level of detail is good and the characters all look great. They really spared no expense. It looks terrific.

A lot of anime fans love this. I myself don’t because it’s about volleyball, but that’s my own personal opinion. I know for a fact that the story is pretty good even though it tends to get a little predictable sometimes.

I think I can safely recommend this one. So what if I don’t like volleyball? The artwork is great and the story isn’t bad either. Why wouldn’t I recommend it? People that are quite fond of the sports-genre will love this.

Plot Summary: After losing against Aoba Jousai, the whole Karasuno team feels at a loss. Especially Kageyama and Hinata, who seem to be the most devastated about the defeat. However, the team soon cheers up when a chance for them to go to Tokyo appears. During their training camp there, Karasuno will meet new formidable opponents.

This is one of the few shows that I will never understand. I just don’t understand it. I can’t fully appreciate the artwork and the story is something that escapes me every single time. I managed to watch the very first season but after that…

OwarimonogatariThe artwork is phenomenal. There is no doubt about the level of detail. It’s the real deal. However, I just can’t fully appreciate its style. I find it rather hard to watch and that results in me losing interest in it.

I’ve been told that these series all got a great story. However, the artwork kind of makes it harder for me to fully appreciate it. It escapes my understanding, I guess…

I simply cannot say that I don’t recommend it. I myself aren’t that interested in this, but a lot of others are. The sales, reviews and ratings are proof of that. I suggest you give this a fair try.

Plot Summary: During the month of October of his third year in high school, Koyomi Araragi is introduced to a transfer student named Ougi Oshino by his underclassman Kanbaru Suruga. Ougi tells Koyomi that she has something she wishes to consult with him. When she draws the map of Naoestu High School, she finds something peculiar. This discovery reveals a tale that wasn’t meant to be told, and this makes Koyomi’s high school life totally different. This is the story that brings to light “what” makes Koyomi Araragi. This is the story that reveals the “beginning” of everything.

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk

This doesn’t seem like anything new. The protagonist enrols in some school for characters with abilities and meets with a girl whose undergarments are exposed at the time. I cannot even begin to count the amount of shows that have started like that.

Gakusen Toshi AsteriskThe artwork looks good. Some might say that the characters look a bit dull and ‘standard’, sure, but I think the level of detail makes up for that. The weapons look nice and the uniforms don’t look like regular Japanese school uniforms. I like that.

It does look a bit promising. I personally enjoy watching ecchi anime because I’m a pervert at heart and I’m sure that there are a lot of others like me. I will be giving the second episode a good try to see where they’re going with this. I suggest you give it a try as well.

Plot Summary: Invertia was a meteor storm that caused an unprecedented disaster during the 20th century. Because of this disaster, numerous cities around the world were destroyed. However, within the meteor, an unknown element called mana was discovered. It allowed human technology to make rapid strides giving rise to a new species of super-powered humans, the Star Pulse Generation (Genestella). The Festas (Star Warrior Festivals) host battles between Genestella at a city of six academies called “Rikka,” also commonly known as “Asterisk.” Scholarship student Ayato Amagiri transferred into Seidōkan Academy in order to fulfill his own wish, swearing he too will fight in this city.
