[Anime] Halfway Through Winter 2016/2017

Intro

I haven’t done anything in a while so let’s talk about the anime I’m watching this season. I’m watching five anime this month:

  1. Gabriel DropOut
  2. Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon
  3. Seiren
  4. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen
  5. Demi-chan wa Kataritai

I’m also watching Amagami SS+ Plus which aired several years ago. I’ll talk about that in the Seiren segment.winter16-17-banner-copy

Anime

Gabriel DropOut

Mainly picked this up because of all the threads had Satania on it. Turns out to be fairly decent and Satania being the best girl. Most of the characters are very cute and expressive but the story doesn’t really go anywhere. Usually not really bad in some cases but in the case of Gabriel DropOut it feels kind of empty knowing that the episode amounted to nothing much. Not bad.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon

A lot of people were criticizing this before it aired because it didn’t look like a standard KyoAni produced anime. I for one was not one of those people. The art is more faithful to the manga (better in my opinion) and just because it’s produced by KyoAni doesn’t mean you should expect the same thing everytime. The anime started off pretty slow but after episode 2-3 it became very endearing and a pleasure to watch. My only gripe with the anime it that the opening theme is by fhana and fhana is shit.

Seiren

Lots of high hopes for this before it aired. “Second coming of Amagami they said”. Things seems optimistic  and everyone seemed to enjoy the ol’ omnibus format that Amagami SS had. Then episodes 3 and 4 happened and it all went down hill from there. Atleast things are somewhat picking up in 5 and 6. So after watching Seiren and realizing the atmosphere is nothing like Amagami SS I decided to finish watching Amagami SS+ Plus and boy was it great (Tsukasa best girl).

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen

My most anticipated anime for winter 2016/2017 since it was announced some time in after season 1. Nothing much to say since I did write a review on season. You can just read that to get the gist of it. In short, I like it. Season 1 Review here.

Demi-chan wa Kataritai

Very relaxing and cute in a way. Great characters that aren’t cookie cutter generic rubbish you often see in mediocre harems. It’s more of a slice of life than a harem though it has some minor romantic themes.

Ranking -So Far-

  1. Shouwa Genroku Rkugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen
  2. Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon
  3. Demi-chan wa Kataritai
  4. Gabriel DropOut
  5. Seiren
