Ehh... that bad? I thought it was popular, but they said the same thing about Sword Art.

What have I watched recently...?

If you want to watch an anime that is my cup of tea, watch "NagiAsu"! It has everything I like in animes: beautiful music and songs, a great plot with supernatural elements and Kana Hanazawa as Manaka! ;)  I strongly recommend you to watch this anime! It has only one disadvantage: Ray singing both openings! I can't stand her Yayoi-like voice and I wish someone else could cover the songs!

Unless I'm completely stupid, aren't NagiAsu and ALull the exact same thing?

They are, actually. ^^"
I've been meaning to start that one because Nagi Yanagi sings an ending. What have you thought of it so far?


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!

Looking back way some, I finally got around to finishing Accel World. I enjoyed it and the fighting concept well, but the one flaw is that it left so many things hanging to the point you'll have to read the light novels. Ain't got no time for that so bring on season 2, already~.

Now to might as well do Log Horizon since people consistently gave praise for every time I've drawn up Accel World + Sword Art Online comparisons.
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

The world should be fans of Accel World instead of Sword Art in my opinion, but it was based on a light novel, which means most of the time they don't get an ending. Beh. Sakurasou at least got somewhere that looked like an ending.

Log Horizon... I've heard people don't like the second season, and I can kinda see why they wouldn't, but I enjoyed it a lot. They changed studios and the animation quality isn't as great, but at worst I would call it average. The first season, on the other hand, is phenomenal. It's a very refreshing take on what it means to be a hero, which is common in the writer's other novels. Some people might say the main character is overpowered, but... no. He is unbeatable at certain things, but he can't solo raid bosses because plot says so like other less well-written characters.

So I'm aware of Log Horizon's uncommon protagonist tropes. I do enjoy my nice subversions in anime, particularly when humor is deftly handled as was the case in Noragami -- endearing and ironic, though not obviously forced. This series looks to give the same in regards to both points. :3

I think season 1 of Log Horizon really stands out among the other "mmo-reality-mix" series because all the fighting is just a side plot and the focus instead lies on the social aspects: how to build a society in this world? What rules and laws should count and how to enforce them? How to deal with NPCs? How to deal with the difference of low level characters (which strangely enough are all children...) and max level characters? This makes Log Horizon season 1 one of my absolute favorite animes.

Season 2 switches the importance of fighting and the social aspects, and thus becomes "just-another-mmo-reality-mix-series". It's not bad by any means by itself, but it can't hold the candle to season 1, which it obviously is always compared to.

Btw: I'm really looking forward to Working!! season 3. Afaik it should start in the summer season.

Space Battleship Yamato 2199, the legendary, nearly-invincible Japanese battleship battles the Nazi-alike aliens in the galaxy again!

The Battle of the Rainbow Star Cluster was simply astonishing! Although Yamato suffers critical damage from Garmillas' fierce bombing, it managed to survive thanks to the Admiral Okita's wise move.



And look how Yamato torn the Zoelguut-class Dreadnought into pieces with its remaining firepower, after luring it into the ionize turbulence.

I decided I needed something quite dark...too much lighthearted anime for a while.
So I have recently started watching Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, or When the Cicadas cry.
(steam recently released ch.1 of the vn so that also reminded me of it)

I have to say it isn't like any anime I've ever watched before....

NEVER BEFORE WAS THE MOE EVER THE SAME AGAIN...GOD DAMN IT RENA

I am eager to figure out the mystery though, rarely do I find anime where you have to think so much. ^^;

if you want something not so light hearted you could take a look at Little Busters (has relatively many light hearted moments though), Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or Clannad (prepare tissues, especially if you also watch After Story)

I'm watching Hibike! Euphonium and Yo-kai Watch. I've been enjoying both.

Kousaka reminds me of Chihaya a bit in how they're both passionate and dedicated to music, although Kousaka plays the trumpet while Chihaya sings.

Yo-kai Watch I've been watching awhile since I was curious why Japanese kids were hooked and ended up getting hooked myself. It's interesting for a kid's anime, but no one is subbing it officially, and the fan subs stopped around episode 25, so I've had to watch it raw. I'm on episode 43 out of 67 currently, and there's a second season on the way too. The music is so catchy. It's supposed to be coming worldwide next year. By the way the male MC Keita share's Ai's VA.

The Premise is a boy named Keita finds a Yo-kai named Whisper who gives him a Yo-kai Watch that allows him to see Yo-kai. Yo-kai are behind various things that happen in daily life.

Also it's been awhile since I saw it, but I thought it was a short but interesting take on idol anime. Idol Defense Force Hummingbird, an idol OVA from the early 90s.
