Anime Fall Season

Well, this season I watched even more than the last season (11 animes in total, on top of regular stuff) , and believe me, it was a workout, but totally worth it. Looking back on it now, last season I wrote way too much so I’m gonna cut this down a lot. As for rating the individual series, I figured out a better scale as well, based on how much I looked forwards to watching them each week. 1 being “Man, I can’t wait,” 2’s being nothing special, and 3 as “Ugh, Do I really have to watch this?,” or something along those lines. You get it.

Arakawa Under the Bridge Season 2
I almost gave this a two, just because it always took forever to get subbed, and I kind of forgot about it.  However, every episode I said to myself ‘This is the best episode ever,” especially the last two, which were epically hilarious.

Nino in a bikini was a plus too.
I picked this up a few episodes in, and while it is pretty much a Shojo (girly) anime, I liked it.  It had some cute moments, and was pretty funny overall.  It even had a trap character which I was strangely attracted to on several occasions. Totally not gay though.

This was one of my favorites last season, and it just wrapped up a couple days ago.  The last few episodes were such an emotional ride, with lots of suspense, an awesome story, and a huge cast of interesting characters. You can read more about it in my last season's wrap up.

Soredemo Machi Wa Mawateiru
This is the second one I picked up late, and I’m so glad I did.  First off, the main character was voiced by my favorite seiyuu, Chiaka Omigawa, who also voiced Mitsuba from last season’s Seitokai, also known as “Dat Voice.”  On top of that, there were maids, lots of cute characters, with a great sense of humor.  Definitely my pick for favorite.
Lesbians not included
Amagami SS
I picked this up after I dropped it last season, and I have to say I enjoyed it.  Many of the girls had better arcs than I would have expected.  Sex hair is still my favorite though.

This bored me a bit at first, but after they got past the introduction and got into the real story, I really liked it. I guess a plot based anime with no action or fan service is fine too. Looking forwards to the second half.

Ika Musume
This one was always fun and cute- a nice change from a lot of stressful action anime with lots of yelling and stuff. Plus, almost every episode being a beach episode was cool too.
Ika and Index?  Twins?
Index Season 2
All I can say is that this wasn’t as good as the first season. I probably will watch the second half, just so I can see some Accelerator action if they ever progress beyond chasing around scantily clad large breasted women.

Ore no Imotou ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
I think this would be better called “My Older Brother Can’t be this Understanding” or “My Little Sister can’t be this much of a Bitch.” I have to give them a bit and say that Kirini definitely was cute, but she was just as annoying. It had some good moments, but in the end it was more moĆ© junk.

Panty and Stocking
I’ve always been a Gainex fan, but I felt let down with this. The humor was vulgar and overly sexual, and even grossed me out a couple times. The animation was horrible, and only turned good for a second while they turned into stripper-angels. I actually liked the Chuck and Garterbelt episodes more than the regular ones. The only saving grace was the last two episodes where the geeky boy turned into a stud, and the slut angel suddenly turned pure, creating some diversity.
I actually liked the music, one of the better elements, as well the fan art that popped up everywhere, both of which helped a bit, but not enough to save it.

Star Driver
I felt like every episode of this was the same thing. The same transformation and fight scene, with a slightly different lead-up and if you were lucky, different characters. And what characters they were, with their stupidly colorful and often revealing outfits. I dropped it after I saw that I would have more than 12 episodes. I might watch the last one though, just to see what happens. I don’t think I’ll miss anything.

And there we go!  As far as all of 2010 went, there was some good anime, then there was some bad anime.  While I didn't start following what was coming out until the summer, I picked some of my favorites.

Summer was my first season here on the blog, and I only really watched two- Working! and Arakawa Season one.  Both of these were great, and I don't really know if I could pick just one.  For the Fall, many of you already know my favorite, Seitokai Yakuindomo.  Finally, this season would have to be Soredemo Machi wa Mawateiru.  Lots of long names in there, but as for my pick for my favorite anime of the year, it has a slightly shorter name, and that name would be Shiki. 

And now it's time for 2011 and all if its anime.  I'll be here to keep trollin' and provide all your anime needs, so stick around.  Remember these are only my opinions, so don't hate me!
