Summer 08 Impressions PART III


Third three~

Hidamari Sketch x365: I’m actually liking this one. My problem with the first series was its pace, and I could only really enjoy it while in the right mood. I suspect it’s the same with this one, since it’s just more of same, but I just know when I should watch it now. The first episode is an unrelentless attack of fluid animation for about 15 minutes, then in the last half it goes back to business as usual. If you liked the first series, you’ll like this one.

Also, for some reason I totally forgot Yuuko Gotou was in this…!

Koihime†Musou: I generally steer clear of shows that involve badass fighting women, but since all the boob shows this season are of that ilk, I decided to submit and give some of them a try. One of these shows is Koihime†Musou.

I was pretty surprised by how much I liked this one. I usually like the pure, soft-spoken maiden types of girls, but the badass women in Musou don’t seem all that annoying, even if I’m not totally moe~ for them. The animation is solid, the writing is solid and the boobage solid, so I don’t see any reason not to continue unless it goes bad.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: This show is just so adorable. Studio Barcelona has won me over again, but this time with the cutest otaku girlfriend ever, and not mischievous lolis. Haruka, the title character, is just so hot and is the sole reason why I am watching this. It’s not like she’s the only good part, though– the production values are great and the show has a great opening and ending.

The only off putting thing is Mamiko’s acting, but that’s only because I’m used to her playing a spineless shota…

    Yeah, Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu seems to be really good… I’m liking it a lot.

    Just stay away from Sekirei…that show….guh. I find it actually hilarious purely from making a game out of how many overdone anime cliches I can find in 5 minutes of the show starting…it’s good if you’re with friends and you need something to laugh at how cheesy it is.

    Haven’t watched Hidamari Sketch yet though…

    <_< I didn’t even know Kugimiya Rie was in Hidamari until I looked it up by accident…

    ;; I was so afraid nobody was going to sub hidamari S2 I actually did the first ep and released it! Thankfully, two groups picked up after, anyway.

    Lol, I do. Hidamari 2 was O.o

    There was actually the words “orz” in it

    Need to start Koihime and Himitsu… sigh

    btw my friend showed me one of the pics of the male character in Koihime “Diao Zhan” (The beautiful woman in the plot to kill Dong Zho), apparently in the game he looks like a genie and he is Wakamoto.

    I’m really enjoying Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu as well. Haruka is just so adorable! High production values and a nice touch of fan service make this a winner all around. I hope it stays this good.

    I read it, but that was a week ago so I had forgotten since then…my bad.

    Currently starting to watch Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu…
    I think I’ll forever skip the intro with the “that’s not how Photoshop layers work at all noobs”
