Autumn 2009 TV Anime Part II (平成二十一年秋期放送開始ノ新作テレビアニメ其ノ弐)


Even though Nyankoi suffers a bit from a slow setup episode, the following installment proves that it has the right stuff to be an amusing–and somewhat heartwarming–series. While the setup isn’t unique, the gimmick is. Though, for talking cats they could stand to aim a bit higher. The animation is nice so far, and I enjoy the character interaction. If it can keep up the quality, it may end up being a nice little series.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu Purezza

The sequels really make it difficult to say much about them, especially when what they deliver is more or less the same as what came before. Which is good, mind you. Much like Natsu No Arashi and Sunred, Haruka delivers more of what it did well in its first season; a romanticized, fantastic, hearts and rainbows love story between a normal dude and his adorable otaku girlfriend. And this season seems to be piling on the fanservice (of the エロい variety) a bit more, which makes it all the more sweeter.

Anime like this is basically my comfort food, so I can’t say anything bad about it.

Seitokai no Ichizon

In theory I should like this show,  but in practice it’s an utter failure. While I do think the characters and their outfits are extremely cute, they’re rendered through Studio Deen’s bland colour work and limited-in-a-bad-way animation. (SHAFT shows are limited-in-a-good-way.) It also doesn’t help when the best part of the show is the part where they’re talking about how lame they are, and the rest is filled with not very clever or well delivered references to anime that’ll be old in a year. It shoots for the heights reached by the first season of Hayate to Gotoku and Pani Poni Dash! but falls flat on its face. I’ve seen two episodes, and if its third doesn’t move me, it’s getting the axe.

However, if there are doujin, I will fap to them.
