Overreactions Week 6 Winter 2016

Mini Anime Reviews

 

  My lists of shows I am watching has really transformed throughout the season–just as it usually does. Half way through the season I am usually pretty set, which I think I finally am now. I have dropped what I’m gonna drop, and I have scoured the poles to see if any shows I didn’t start at the beginning of the season are worth my time. After seeing what Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash as well as KONOSUBA – God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World have been doing in the polls, I have decided to give them a shot. So far I have really been impressed with what I’ve seen. Both have a similar setting (probably the most popular setting there is right now) but go in entirely different directions, and both do what they are trying to do fairly well.

 

  We’ve now burned through half the season for most the shows so I feel I can say this is a fairly average season. So far one has stood head and shoulders above all other shows, but there quite a substantial amount of legitimately good, not great, shows this season. So far on MAL 36% of the shows are rated 7+, 13% are rated 8+, and only 2% are rated a 9+ (in other words only a single show!)

 

We can only work with what we got, and we’re all prisoners of the moment here so let’s overreact!

Overreactions Week 2 Winter 2016

Overreactions

 

   The Winter 2016 Anime season has hit the ground running setting the tone for what looks to a another promising year! There’s something for everyone this season. Whether you’re into magical high schools, wild fantasy worlds, or epic time travel mysteries!

   OK… I might be way too positive/optimistic seeing that it’s only two weeks into the Anime year, and I might be full of it when I say that the year looks promising but hey! I’m only human right!? While there are a couple really promising original and anti-trope shows this season, most of what we have is what is to be expected. Shows built around Fanservice and the same old anime routines…

Whether it’s Matt playing a concert, Joe studying to be a doctor, or Kari at a friends birthday party everyone has something that’s keeping them from being able to make it to Tai’s game–with the exception of Mimi who says she’ll fly over from America to watch, and Sora who wants to try to make it to both Matt’s concert and Tai’s game. While everyone is following through on their plans mysterious electronic interferences begin occurring.  The one common variable to these mass electronic malfunctions is a Kuwagamon flying overhead!

Fall 2015 Midway Season Review

What I am watching Halfway Review

One Punch Man

right hand of anime one punch man half way review

The hype surrounding this show was the real deal! Thankfully Madhouse delivered! One Punch man revolves around Saitama who is just a hero for fun. Saitama, with his friend Genos, fight monsters that show up in City Z, and thanks to the “extreme” training regimen that drove him bald Saitama is absurdly powerful. Now when I say absurdly powerful I mean it. Everyone he fights he kills in one punch– causing him to grow bored.

Coming into this I was wondering how a show that has an MC that beats everyone in a single punch could produce awesome fight scenes. When the first villain, Vaccine Man, was beaten within the first minute of his introduction I thought, “So this is really how this is going to be huh?” Continue reading “Fall 2015 Midway Season Review”
