The iDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls

Ah, it would seem that I forget about this one. I remember seeing the very first season and somehow liking it. It was okay and, although I did not see all of it before dropping it, I still think it was pretty amusing before I got bored with it.

The iDOLM@STER Cinderella GirlsThe artwork is still very nice. The characters all look cute and the level of detail is definitely not bad. It was always nice to look at and the characters always managed to find a way to keep me somewhat entertained.

The story is what made me stop watching the first season. It was about a group of girls trying to become idols. At one point it all got extremely predictable and obvious that I just stopped watching because I already knew that I was right about what was going to happen next. I hope that’s not the case with this one.

Can I recommend it? That’s a tough question. If the story is better than definitely yes. I always thought it was a pretty nice show at first. It’s pretty funny at times and it teaches a tiny bit about what it takes to become an idol without them throwing all kinds of girly crap in your face. So yeah, see for yourselves.

Plot Summary: There are many idols with long-established talent agency 346 Production. And now the company is starting a new program, the Cinderella Project!

Girls leading normal lives…

They are chosen to be aspiring idols and see another world for the first time in this Cinderella story. Can they all climb the stairs that lead to the palace?

The magic begins now…

Rolling Girls

This is going to be very hard on me. I did not like the first episode. I somewhat understood what was going on and what I could expect from this in the near future, but I simply wasn’t interested. Not even a little bit.

Rolling GirlsThe artwork is okay at best. The characters look pretty cute and the action scenes are pretty cool, but that’s all there is to it. There’s no magic. That Macha-whatever character looks really dull and uninspiring.

The story doesn’t speak to me at all. The story seems rather dull and childish. It is kind of hard to take serious and a lot of stuff doesn’t make any sense.

I cannot recommend something that I did not enjoy myself. I don’t even feel the need to watch the second episode.

Plot Summary: 10 years after the Great Tokyo War, each prefectures in Japan had split up into independent nations. Each nations are ruled by a prophet called “Mosa” and an army called “Mob” as they start to compete to take over other countries. Four “Mob” girls from the Saitama clan, Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, Chiaya are ordered by their “Mosa” to travel around Japan riding their motor cycles to mediate multiple battles between nations and clans as they emerge.

Shounen Hollywood: Holly Stage for 50

I honestly do not understand why this got another season. The ratings where so bad and I also read somewhere that the sales were very disappointing as well. How could this, based on those results, get another season? I do not understand.

Shounen Hollywood Holly Stage for 50The artwork is what pisses me off the most. It is incredibly girly. Basically, all men in that world look gay. They look gay, they sound gay, they often talk and act gay. It is an insult to all men, the obvious superior sex (facts don’t lie).

It’s a story about gay guys looking to get famous in the entertainment industry. That’s pretty much all I got from the first season and I’ll be damned to watch any more of this if I don’t have to.

I am sorry, but I cannot recommend this. Not even to girls. You might get strange ideas (like sticking a finger up our man’s behind during sexual intercourse). Some things just don’t work out.

Plot Summary: The anime will tell an original story set 15 years after the novel’s story.

It takes place at a fictional theater called Hollywood Tokyo in Harajuku, where members of the idol group “Shounen Hollywood” develop their talents with diligent work and studying.

Military!

Last season we were allowed to follow a rare anime short. It was rare because it was actually great fun to watch. The kind of anime short that made you wish it was a regular show. This might actually be like one of those rare anime shorts.

Military!The artwork was pretty good. I am not a big fan of chibi characters, but it wasn’t so bad. These characters are actually watchable. And the level of detail is pretty high for an anime short, so yeah… Very little complaints about the artwork.

What makes this anime short so rare is that it actually has a storyline. The episodes are so incredibly short, yet there’s a storyline that you can follow. It’s not even that bad either.

I do recommend this. It has girls, guns and a confused protagonist that needs those girls to protect him with those guns. It is funny and perhaps a little ecchi (but only a little). It’s worth spending three minutes a week on.

Plot Summary: The story takes place during a conflict between the Krakozhia Dukedom and the Grania Republic. In the midst of the fighting, a savior appears to the Krakozhia Dukedom, and it is a high school student named Yano Souhei. Two female soldiers, First Lieutenant Ruto and Second Lieutenant Haruka, appear in tanks to intrude on Souhei’s everyday life, followed by the enemy soldier Shachirofu, all of whom use firearms without hesitation at his house.

Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love!

Amazing. Only Japan could create something so gay that I just renders me speechless. The sad part is that I knew it was coming and still fired up the episode. Just that picture was enough to set off my mental alarm.

Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love!The artwork isn’t even that bad to be very honest. It really isn’t. The only good thing that’s worth mentioning about the artwork is that Wombat character. He looks pretty funny. The rest is just dreadful; male characters in mahou shoujo outfits… Kill them with fire.

The story, although pretty unique, is quite messed up. Some magical wombat turns a couple of high school boys into mahout shoujo’s in order to save the world from cheap-looking monsters? Can something like that even be considered funny?

I am so sorry, but I cannot see myself watching this week after week. This one episode was enough to give me a brain fart and I fear for my mental wellbeing if I watch any more of this stuff. So yeah, I cannot recommend this.

Plot Summary: This is the story of how five high school boys affiliated with the “Binan High School Earth Defense Club” aka the “Do Nothing Club” are charged by a weird pink wombat creature with protecting the world.
