22 Mar 2013


Before entering the fall season last year, this anime going on top in my waiting list. Why? With great visualization and quite different, its action on PV, also an article says that each side of the anime is made by 'the best' are several reasons. Then how did it go? I think slightly disappointing. Yet each person has a different point of view.

Type : TV Series
Status : Finished Airing (13 episodes)
Aired : Oct - Dec 2012
Genre : Action, Supernatural
Producers : GoHands

Summary of the story is quite interesting and different background than existing. Beginning of the story is told from a child of unknown origin living in the middle battle of the Seven Kings were also for unknown reason. Isana Yashiro, life as a student of High School Ashinaka suddenly regarded as a Killer by member King of the Red Colour just because a video. Then short story, his life was not quiet because chased by all members of Red Colour and he was rescued by Neko, being look as a ladies and Yatogami Kuroh, a member of 'Colourless King'. His cases cause conflict with King of Blue Colour (the government) until it is known what the true identity of Isana Yashiro.

Hope this anime scene filled with 'full action' as it is supported by its amazing visual effects make people who watching this would be amazed to see it. But the reality is very unfortunate, like a beautiful fruit skin but the content is not as good as the skin. Its action scenes are very poor, even of its scenes look forced directly to at the end of 'fighting' though some scenes are fairly detailed. In terms of its visual character, look there element of fanservices from its character that made with a super cool design. (Animation / 7.0)

Even so, the story in this anime is so powerful to make audiences curious because since the early, too many mysterious things and as time running its stories was revealed. The continuation of the story in each episodes unpredictable makes this anime get points on this section. (Story / 9.0)

From characteristics side, personality of characters in this series doesn't look so prominent, not consistent and seems ordinary. Perhaps because of its visual is intended for fanservices. (Characteristic / 6.0)

Articles that say about this anime are made by 'the best people' in their field isn't just a rumor. Images drawing, visual effects until his voice was really great. Theme song of the series is also suitable, don't say much about this. (Sound / 9.0)

If only its mystery stories supported by the 'power' as good, this anime might be the best in fall season of last year. However, for you who loved the anime with stories, pictures and a awesome visual effects without or don't consider about action scene at all, this series worth to be watched. (Overall / 7.75)

A little news, there sequel announced for this series. Let's see later

Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince 2 Minutes PV Streamed today

Pretty soon anime winter will 'fall' in a few weeks and anime invasion on large amounts will 'spring' after that. After seeing the anime chart that will appear in this spring, to be sure you have a list of what anime are you guys going on to watch, right? As well as to me. There are some series that makes me very interested and one of them is this mecha genre series. Today its PV impressions for 2 minutes and look from it, this series looks promising in my view and exactly hope not make disappointed.

Then summary of the story of this anime is that the human beings has expanded its frontier into space in search of resources. Advances in study of genetic engineer allow humans to adapt with the new frontier and the rise of 'special' humans who have evolved their genetics, like protagonist, Izuru. He signed up at the academy called Gurantseere with a mission to protect humanity form a mysterious invasion known as Urugaru with Mecha.

Viewed from PV, for people with no knowledge of mecha anime might look this similar to a series that is already very famous in the world, GUNDAM. But with the casts of young in this anime might make the story is quite different, where the core of the story GUNDAM most powerful in politics. But in the anime PV is seen that this series not very strong in that and I think still on 'shounen' category. What do you think? Or we'll see after airing later. The most I waited series this spring is a new original series of mecha from Sunrise, Kakumeiki Valvrave.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai

Recently, most anime providing about fanservice, moe, comedy by inserts ecchi or anything that’s not focused on the power of stories. It makes much people not too interested to follows anime in each season, but it’s not at all. Even so, there some anime that conveys the story in a different way, so it’s still interesting to watch.

Title : Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai
Status : Finished Airing (12 episodes)
Aired : Oct - Dec 2012
Genre : Comedy, Romance, School, Drama
Producers : Kyoto Animation

This series focused on Romance with something surprisingly. Some fact in real life that is not known by many people appointed in this anime. Is it “Chuunibyou”. In Japanese, Chuunibyou is Middle School 2nd Year Syndrome, which people have that act like a know-it-all adult and look down on real ones or believe they have a special powers unlike others. In short, this series tells about a boy (Yuuta Togashi) who want to stop ‘Chuunibyou’ in his life when grade to Senior High School. But when he begin to do it, he meet with a girl (Rikka Takanashi) who was suffering Chuunibyou and it makes a lot of trouble for him to throw that syndrome. As time goes Rikka becomes more attached to Yuuta, who despite finding her delusions irritationg and embarassing, accepts her. And then Yuuta want ‘help’ her when he joins on Rikka’s summer vacation. Yuuta want help Rikka for quit from her delusions about search ‘Ethereal Horizon’ which she believes will lead her to her father. Death of her father made him fall into these delusions and finally when Yuuta agrees to help Rikka, they becomes romantically interested. (Story / 8.0)
Kyoto animation make this ‘school of life’ background looks good and a consistent aesthetic each character’s personality can be read from his or her appearance, their body languague act as people who have supernatural powers. There another surprise from animation in this series, is animation! ‘Action scene’ illusions as well as when Rikka release her Jaoshingan!! That’s remember me with Black Rock Shooter which have different scene about real life and action scene, even that scene in this series looks very well if compared with other ‘real action’ series. (Animation / 9.0)
Different voices in different personality heard very well played by Rikka and Yuuta seiyuu. Be advised they're seiyuu of those who experienced but it depends on you how much you like their's voices. But in my opinion all of chara sounds in this series are well played so does the sound effect. (Sound / 8.5)
Personality of who have Chuunibyou is so fun, innocent, and overconfident! Altough never see people with this syndrome in real life but characteristic showing in this series about it enough powerful, responses other people from environment also good for Rikka's attitude everyday. (Characteristic / 8.5)
Romance comedy combined with moe oriented and some fanservice in anime nowadays has become common thing.  But by lifting a few facts about life makes me interested in watching this series because not only presenting 'moe or fanservice thing' but audience also got new knowledge that is rarely known. And in my opinion if you hope slice of life in this series, Drama perhaps more appropriate provided in Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai (Overall / 8.0)
