Macross Delta

Another Macross serie… Why am I not surprised at all by this? The Macross series have never been my cup of tea and they never will be since they cannot change the fundament part of the series; heroines singing during fights.

Macross DeltaI am okay with the artwork. It all looks pretty interesting and it shows a lot of promise. I have been told that a respectable studio has put a lot of work in Macross Delta. Haven’t really done my homework on that one.

Story-wise it’s a total no-go for me. I don’t like the idea of girls singing in order to defeat enemies. Just like those Symphogear series (I don’t even remember the full name because I was so uninterested); singing heroines and fighting mechs just don’t go together for me. It’s impossible to take serious.

I for one am not at all a fan. Go ahead if you are a Macross fan, but go check out the Gundam series if you prefer real mecha-genre anime.

Plot Summary: Macross Delta is set in the year 2067, 8 years after the events of the latest Macross TV series, Macross Frontier. The story focuses on Walküre, a team of talented idols and Valkyrie pilots and the Delta Squadron, a team of experienced Valkyrie pilots as they battle against the Var Syndrome, a mysterious entity that’s consuming the galaxy. But both must battle the mysterious Aerial Knights, a group of Valkyrie pilots from the Kingdom of Wind.

Brave Beats

Oh my god… There was something like this not too long ago where the characters were dancing all over the place. It was so annoying and hard to watch that I couldn’t even finish the first episode. The same thing happened here.

Brave BeatsThe artwork is just annoying. It’s so childish and the characters are so standard and cliché that it makes my eyes a little irritated. And the animation scenes as they start dancing or that little robot alien? My god…

The story is ridiculous and it doesn’t seem interesting at all. I mean come on… An alien robot lands on earth and all of a sudden a kid becomes capable of transforming into a dancing god? Riiiiiiight…

I won’t watch this and I see no reason why anyone else should. No. No. No.

Plot Summary: Hibiki Kazaguruma, a sixth grader, meets an amusing little robot named Bureikin while coming home from school one day. Bureikin, a dancer from an alternate-dimension dance world, challenged the dance king for the throne and lost. He has been deprived of Dance Stones (the stones of dance power) and sent to the human world. To restore his power, Bureikin must collect all the Dance Stones scattered around Earth.

High School Star Musical

If anime could kill then this could’ve been lethal stuff. My god… It took every ounce of willpower to see it through to the end. At one point I started becoming afraid of the idea that one character might just end up violating the other all of a sudden.

High School Star MusicalThe artwork is just… wow. I know that FUNimation has worked on some pretty bad anime, but this? It’s almost like Chaos Dragen or Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai all over again. If you want to improve this show then give the student some instruments that turn into weapons and set up a battle royal.

I am simply not a huge music fan. Very few shows about music I liked. Those that I liked were more about characters playing certain instruments. Watching a bunch of boys sing every week just isn’t my thing.

I just cannot recommend it. It doesn’t look interesting at all. The artwork needs a lot of work and the story simply doesn’t speak to me. Not one bit.

Plot Summary: Yuuta Hoshiya enters Ayana Academy, a school focusing on show business activities, specifically music. The academy has a group of the three students with the highest grades in the musical department, and they are known as the Kao Kai (Cherry Blossom Flower Association). This organization stands at the top of the pecking order within the academy. The shortcut to entering the musical department is to enter the Star Frame class, which is directly taught by the members, and to be recognized by them. Unfortunately, due to their own problems, students Tōru, Kaito, Shō, Shū, and Yūta are all struggling to even remain candidates for the musical department. By a stroke of luck, however, the five are spotted by Kao Kai member Ōtori, and they pique his interest.

Miss Monochrome: The Animation 3

I will never understand these series. I thought the first season was absolutely dreadful, I thought the second season was just as dreadful as the first and now I think that the third season will be just as dreadful as the first two seasons. No idea why this because so successful.

Miss Monochrome The Animation 3The artwork is surprisingly good for an anime short. I mean, sometimes you’ll see these hideous scenes that make you want to cry, but overall it’s pretty acceptable.

I personally just don’t like music anime. It would have to be pretty darn good for me to become a fan.

I simply cannot recommend any of these series. I hate it. I think it’s an absolute waste of time to watch it.

Plot Summary: In order to be more in the eyes of the public, Miss Monochrome begins working to become a top-selling idol. Spacey Miss Monochrome once again runs around the idol show biz world, being tossed around by others.

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.
