Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka??

I am not surprised by this at all. I knew from the very beginning that this was going to get a second season at the very least. I mean, this show really took off. They basically hit a homerun because all the elements are just right.

Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka 2First we have this pleasant line-up of adorable characters. Then we have very detailed artwork and pretty darn good music. They basically did this right.

And the story? Yeah, you have a bunch of adorable loli’s and a weird rabbit, whom may or may not be Chino’s grandfather somehow, and that’ll keep you watching. You always end up wanting just a little bit more.

I think it is fun to watch. It’s hard to write about since I’m no good when it comes to your average slice of life shows, but I am definitely going to watch this.

Plot Summary: High school freshman Cocoa Hoto got lost and bumped into a coffee shop called “Rabbit House” while looking for a boarding house for the upcoming semester of her new school. Luckily, Rabbit House is the boarding house she’s looking for, and to return the favor Cocoa starts working at the coffee shop alongside quiet and cool Chino, strong and athletic Rize, plus Chiya and Syaro from Japanese-styled coffee shop Amausaan, as well as the shop mascot rabbit Tippy, who sometimes doesn’t quite act like a rabbit….

Yuru Yuri San☆Hai!

This is a typical example of how messed up the Japanese are. They make something with girls as the target audience, only to find out later that the majority of fans are male. Can you really be surprised by that?

Yuru Yuri San☆Hai!Look at the artwork; it’s about a group of girls and their roundabout school lives. They will play, mess around and do all sorts of ‘cute’ and girly stuff and it’s that sort of thing that attracts girls, but also a whole lot of guys.

As I’ve stated in many of my reviews; I don’t particularly like slice of life anime. It’d have to be pretty darn good for me to be excited about it. This simply isn’t one of them. I find that the story becomes dull sometimes.

I understand the first season. I can even understand the second season and some of the specials, but I did not expect a third after it turned out that the second season did not do as well as they had hoped.  If you know the Yuru Yuri series then go for it.

Plot Summary: The middle school days of Akari and co. resume normally as they enjoy their fun times together again.

Peeping Life TV

I absolutely hate that we have so many anime shorts this season. It’s ridiculous. Only one or two out of ten is actually watchable and the rest is nothing more than a complete waste of time and money. But this time they actually turned an anime short into a regular show, which is absolutely the worst.

Peeping Life TVThis is one of those non-watchable shows. I mean, the artwork is just so annoying and so bad that I couldn’t even finish the first episode. After fifteen minutes I just called it a day.

The story isn’t any better. It’s basically a story (is it?) about bashing other stories. Nobody is safe. Black Jack, characters from beloved children’s stories and even characters from American cartoons (or so I’ve been told) get used in order to desperate try to make you laugh.

I won’t watch this. It’s dreadful and not even that funny. Hell, I can count the amount of times I cracked a little smile during the first episode on one hand. I absolutely do not recommend this.

Plot Summary: Heroes from worlds of Tezuka Production and Tatsunoko Production “evolved” for their TV appearance.

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.

Ame-iro Cocoa: Rainy Color e Youkoso!

Another anime short. I really am saying that a lot this season. GameDemon is not amused. I simply do not understand why this got a second season. The first season got poor ratings in Japan, so why?

Ame-iro Cocoa Rainy Color e Youkoso!Where do I even start my rant about how much I hate the artwork because they’re all gay-looking male characters? Would it kill them to throw in a few female characters? They just throw in a few shota’s and that’s that.

I mean, it’s bad if a show only has 5 minutes per week. Doesn’t do much for a story. It’s worse if a show only has three minutes per week. That makes it almost impossible to come up with a decent story. So how much of a story could a show like this, which has only two minutes per week, possible have? Honestly…

I’m simply not into these cheap slide of life comedies. Hell, it’s not even funny. That nonsense with that door? Come on. You must really have a weak sense of humour if you laugh at that. I definitely won’t be watching this and I don’t see what I should recommend anyone otherwise.

Plot Summary: Life at the Rainy Color café can never be described as boring. The arrival of the Koga brothers from England—Noel, always brimming with curiosity, and Nicola, somewhat shy and conservative—ensures that their sibling, café manager Shion, is kept on his toes. There’s also another newcomer, cameraman/photographer Jun Arisawa, who holds a mysterious connection to café owner Koji Amami. Last but not least, there’s a special photograph that incites all kinds of heartfelt and comedic reactions from the Rainy Color crew!
