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!)

2010 Spring Anime Season

Ichiban Ushiro no Maou

This ended up being the one episode out of the new season that immediately satiated my need for a trainwreck series. Obviously I can’t tell whether or not it ends up as one since it’s only been one episode. But for me, it’s already in the Pizza Echelon: It’s still good even if it tastes bad.

The studio behind Ichiban Ushiro no Maou is Artland. And Sugisaki Ken’s voice actor from Seitokai no Ichizon is also the main character in IchiMaou. He already looks and acts like Ken, so might as well call this a SeiZon spin off written by Shiina Minatsu.

And this entry kicks off the first moe radiation data sheet. So pull out your Geiger counters, switch it to detect moe particles, and let’s collect some data.
