Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R

This was the absolute worst. I’m not a big fan of Mahou Shoujo anime to begin with, but this was actually worse than usual.

Nurse Witch Komugi-chan RThe artwork isn’t even worse mentioning. The level of detail is very disappointing and I couldn’t really bring myself to stay focused.

Story? What story? It’s a horrible monstrosity. They say it’s a parody and that it’s supposedly funny, yet I didn’t even laugh once. It was not interesting, not funny and I don’t think I’ll even bother watching the second episode.

Keep moving. This really isn’t worth watching. I’m not just saying that. Watching the first episode was a total waste of my time.

Plot Summary: Komugi Yoshida is a somewhat clumsy second-year middle-school student whose strong point is her spiritedness. She performs as an idol like Kokona Saionji (her classmate and close friend) and Tsukasa Kisaragi (an idol who dresses in male clothing). However, unlike Kokona whose popularity is skyrocketing and Tsukasa with her charisma in male attire, Komugi’s only gigs are low-end ones like those at the local shopping district. Still, Komugi has her “dream” as she lives her dual lives as a idol and a middle school girl. One day, a mysterious injured creature named Usa-P appears before Komugi and asks if she wants to be a Legendary Girl who can use magical powers. She reluctantly becomes Magical Nurse and fights waves of masked figures. Meanwhile, a Magical Maid and a Magical Sister also show up.

Garo: Guren no Tsuki

I’m not so sure which one is better; this one or the other version that aired last year. I’m guessing the problem with this one is that it’s essentially the same; use your magic armour to fight horrors with the goal of defeating the big boss at the end.

Garo Guren no TsukiI’ll admit that I like the characters so far. I think they’re a little bit better than the characters from last year’s version. I was never really fond of that playboy knight and that woman. These characters are easier on the eye.

Story-wise it’s a bit of a risk. It really is too much of the same thing. The Golden Armour comes back once again and will be used to defeat all evil.

I honestly don’t know if this will work out or not. The first two episodes didn’t really impress me as nothing special has happen thus far. It’s too much of the same thing at the moment. Time will tell if that’ll change, but go ahead and give the first episode a try.

Plot Summary: Heian-kyou, capital and the center of elegant, aristocratic culture, is heavily guarded by a spiritual force field — or so it seems. In reality, onmyouji (court magi who create the spiritual force field) can only defend the palace located in the northern part of the city; in downtown, monsters known as “horror” that feast upon human souls roam after sunset. There are, however, a group of heroes protecting commoners from “horrors” in darkness.

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.

Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan

This does not look promising at all. The first episode was very disappointing and pretty hard to watch at times. The characters have strange personalities and the story makes no sense whatsoever right now. What a weird start…

Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no KyoukanThe artwork is alright. I’m not going to say that it’s great or extremely detailed. It’s not. It barely passes in my book. The characters look rather dull and the weapons, from what I’ve seen so far, don’t really look all that amazing.

And this story… Boy… What a mess. We have a so-called traitor that’s supposed to be the instructor for three annoying students. Why let a traitor teach? Why even start him off as a traitor and not tell us more about it? Why even bother starting the episode off in a way that just confuses the hell out of people?

I honestly see nothing special about this show. It doesn’t look all that interesting and I don’t think that I will be following this for that much longer. I’ll probably drop it after the second episode. I suggest you look at something else.

Plot Summary: Humanity was driven off the land by the threat of magical armored insects and now live in aerial floating cities. Its defenses lie in wizards who fight the insects with magic in mid-air. Kanata Age is a young man who lives on the floating wizard academy city of “Misutogan.” He was once celebrated as the “Black Master Swordsman,” the elite ace of the S128 special team. However, he is now despised as the “traitor of the special team.” One day, he is assigned as the instructor of E601, a team that has suffered 10 consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls — Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel — with one or two peculiar quirks.

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.
