MU's opinion on the Fall 2012 anime season

MU's opinion on the Fall 2012 anime season
28 Dec 2012 01:16:42

I'm back with my thoughts of the previous anime season. I didn't review the previous season because I dont think I really watched anything from it. Here are my thoughts on the Fall anime season.

Busou Shinki


Bonus picture!

My surprise favorite of the season. Based on the Busou Shinki toy line (which are suposed to be 1/1 replicas of the characters featured in the games/ anime) it's essentially a harem anime, but the show's theme is what saves it from becoming just another pure fanservice show. Episodes typically revolve around the Shinkis doing something to please their "master" such as delivering his lunch or buying him a Christmas present, which always turn into a wacky adventure. If you are a Shinki owner this is a must watch, but anyone else should still find it enjoyable.


Girls und Panzer


Out of the three moe military shows I've seen (Strike Witches, Upotte and this) Girls und Panzer is the weakest. The characters in particular are rather bland compared to the others, however this shows highlight is the military aspect compared to the other shows witch were more about the moe. The tank battles are the reason to watch the show they are really fun and often completely over the top. The shows story is fairly weak and is only there to string together the battles. Give it a shot if you want to see some cool tank battles, otherwise skip it.


JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (episodes 1-9)


I've decided to split this review into two as these first 9 episodes cover the first story ark (Phantom Blood) and episode 10 and onwards starts the second part (Battle Tendency) the story arks in jojo are distinct enough to be considered their own series.

As mentiond before the first 9 episodes are Phantom Blood. Which is often considered the worst part of the series. Watching this reminded me of how weak it really was, with strange pacing and special attacks that apear out of nowhere. The anime does smooth out a lot of the flaws In particular the infamously inconstant art is given a nice modern makeover that feels true to the original. Despite it's flaws it's still a fun manly and most importantly ridiculous shonen anime. It's a must watch for those Interested in the JoJo series as it features some of the most memorable quotes, moments, characters (Speedwagon and Zeppeli) and the backstory for the later and greater parts of the series.


JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (episode 10 and onwards)


Episode 10 starts the second part of the series Battle Tendency (which is often considered to be one of the best parts) It fallows the same pattern as the first by updating the art and cutting the filler, but is a lot better (probably due to the stronger source material) In addition it's visually much more interesting with even more vibrant colors then the first part. (just watch the intro!) I can't wait for more, especially how amazing part's 3 and 4 will be!

The best most fabulous intro i've seen in a while!



Litchi DE Hikari Club


Based on a horror manga with strong yaoi overtones this is a 3 minute comedy anime! If you've read and enjoyed the original you probably wont like this and if you havent if will be pretty confusing. So I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, you are much better off reading the original manga, which I also wouldn't really recommend.


Robotics;Notes


The third in 5pb.'s "Science Adventure series" (the others are Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate) It's a moe slice of life show following a group of students as they attempt to build a giant robot. It's fairly similar to Steins;Gate but with a lighter tone and has a lot of references to it as well. The characters while following the same archetypes as SG are all fairly distinct and enjoyable. It's worth a look if you enjoyed the previous in the serse or just like sci-fi of slice of life shows in general.


Teekyuu


Another 3 minute thing, however it takes a different approach then most. Instead of having a singe gag per episode, this anime attempts to cram almost an entire 25 minute episodes worth of content into a sigle episode giving the show a frantic pace. This makes the show almost incomprehensible with subtitles. Not recommended.
