Angel Beats! was fun.

This is kind of sexy.

I have an entire “review” like entry for Angel Beats!, but I always somehow end up not trusting whatever the hell I’m saying. Seems like I’m using such a roundabout way just to say that I like a series despite it’s failings. Or maybe my way of saying that you can still enjoy a series even if it sucks. Am I trying to say that Angel Beats! is a bad show? Not really, but I’ll admit there are a couple of points I wish they tweaked a bit so it was a little better. Even those weren’t much. The only things I’d probably change were little things most probably don’t care about, and I’m sure Maeda Jun and the director, Kishi Seiji, were arguing about the same details that the audience really doesn’t care about. (But I do.)

I watched Angel Beats! for various reasons.

Kamiya Hiroshi, again. Hanazawa Kana and her crazy good voice. PA Works also did CANAAN. Man, was that ever a sketchy reason to watch this show. TK dances. Yuri was more appealing to me than Suzumiya. Headbands. There was a fishing event too, to cap off the silly NPC banter. Oh, how RPG-like.

Data compiled for Angel Beats

Radiation measurements: 277 cM per min; 110,053 MADness/RAGE total, 42 HNG per episode
Radiation consistency: non-burst type, exceptional cohesion

-No anomalies or unique signatures present.
-Headbands and rock bands reported to have reduced moe particle emission.
-Certain episodes contain heavy. (Not a mistake, you’re reading correctly. And no, not the Heavy from TF2.)
-TK is awesome.

Amount of suckage: 35%

Suckage does not indicate a value of inverse quality. Series may have 100% suckage, but contain much win.

Please leave a goddamn comment. I’ll post my full retrace of the series if I notice people read our stuff. We’re lonely here. (Or at least, I am.)

Angel Beats! was fun.

2010 Spring Anime Season

I actually had a large post ready to be uploaded, but I realized I was just typing for the sake of getting some kind of article up that was supposed to sound professional.

After a single proofread, I deleted it.

Instead, here’s a series of short sentences that describe the current anime season from the narrow viewpoint of yours truly.

K-ON! Season 2 is Kyoto Animation giving us our weekly moe blob injections. Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou is the sequel to Seitokai no Ichizon. Working!! is for people who either like minimal story settings or have worked in the service industry. Kaichou wa Meido-sama is our seasonal JC Staff production with lovely watercolor/pastel background scenery porn. Angel Beats has the OP with a girl playing a piano. Heroman takes place in California. B Gata H Kei has Yukari Tamura. Ookiku Furikabutte is a baseball sports anime with a competent animation team. I don’t care about Major (another baseball series). Arakawa Under the Bridge is done by SHAFT. Mayoi Neko Overrun is love, since it has loli and zettai ryouiki. House of Five Leaves is a bakery and samurai talk boxes without any actual cooking. Kiss X Sis is for perverts. Senkou no Night Raid replaced Sora no Woto.

And I think Da Capo is happening again. (Yay!)
