Fall 2013 Anime Preview

It’s autumn, so this means a whole new season of anime to check out.

Of course, this 2013 anime lineup has A LOT of shows. An avid viewer of anime needs to weed out the good from the bad, just like they would for any TV sitcom out there.

I have checked out the first episodes of random anime series for this fall, and below are my various thoughts with a guideline of my opinions.

Of course, you have to take these ratings with a grain of salt. I put a lot of emphasis toward first-episode impressions. With so many shows in any given anime season, having the viewer hooked enough to keep watching a series is important. After all, if one anime show will not get your attention, another one is bound to catch your interest.
Rating Key
1 = Just terrible. An anime with this rating makes me question humanity, and I feel sorry for all the money wasted toward animating this piece of garbage.

2 = Lackluster. An anime with this rating misses the mark on many levels. It is better than trash tier, but the anime is still crappy in some fashion.

3 = Average. Lots of anime fall into the “OK” category by default, but some do not excel enough to stand out from the crowd.

4 = Great. An anime that strives for “oomph” is always a treat because it went the extra mile to be more than ordinary.

5 = Outstanding. Every season, there is always that “must see” anime or two that one should never miss out on for the viewing experience of a lifetime.

One of those “twisted” anime stories. Very intriguing. I want to see what happens next.

Initial Impression of First Episode: 4/5

Am I doing this right—???! //Rambles idk e ue;

It’s been about a year since I posted anything here, ahahahahah–//SHOT

I’m still really uncertain about what I’m supposed to type here, but… e w e Nhan-san the man once said something like, “Just be yourself and type!” or something along those lines… Or maybe he didn’t… Uaaaah…

I’m not gonna try to catch you (whoever may be reading this, uah…) up on my life– ‘cos that would take way too long and I would probably get bored, haha.
I actually get bored really easily. My friends in Psychology told me that multi-tasking eats away at your short-term memory. Suddenly my entire life makes sense–//gulp

.w. Hopefully I’ll be able to think of better things to post here than pointless rambles, haha. Like voice acting!!!

I’ve recently gotten back into voice acting, aaaah! I’m open for scouting– I’ll leave you with my demo reel! 😀 I probably won’t get any work from here, lol, but I tried to make the demo short and entertaining so as to hold your attention span!
Welp. Hopefully I’ll remember to start posting here more often!!! e u e I’m surprised I wasn’t removed from the site, ahahah–//shot

What a ☆ Part 29

Please subscribe to Imoristar’s YouTube channel. She is such a !

In your dreams, there is a place where your hearts now lies
It is more fragile than your waking life you have held
You can abandon it, yet it’s always there
Now, please go
It’s time to sleep in peace

My pulsing rage, living inside me, defiles wishes that I harbor
Before my mind fades away, deep in my heart, I remember

In this beautiful and yet very cruel world, which we live in
We keep asking ourselves alone, “Why was I the one who survived?”
And truly what is it that we want to protect the most?
With our strength and weakness, we fight
Reason and logic held together fade away

P.S. “Attack on Titan” is awesome. GO WATCH THE ANIME RIGHT NOW!

Anime Recommendation: Zero no Tsukaima

From Zero to Hero?
I just finished the first season of “Zero no Tsukaima” (The Familiar of Zero), and I really enjoyed it.

Synopsis: Louise is a magician at the Tristein Academy, dubbed with the nickname “Zero Louise” due to her inability to effectively use her magic properly, resulting in zero successes. An upcoming test at her academy requires her to summon a familiar, a servant and partner to support her as a magician. Despite desiring a familiar that would be superior to her constantly mocking classmates, Louise ends up summoning Hiraga Saito, your average Japanese boy. Even with Louise and Saito both unwilling to accept each other, they have no choice. Louise cannot attempt another summoning and Saito cannot return to Japan, and so their life together begins. Based on the novel by Noboru Yamaguchi.

I was actually looking for a romantic, shoujo anime to watch, and then I came across “Zero no Tsukaima” on a random list on a forum. It turns out this anime was basically a harem instead of a romantic shoujo, but I still liked it regardless. I found the characters really fun, and I am going to give this anime extra props for actually having an Asian male who hooks up with a non-Asian girl(s) (take that, society).

So yeah, this “shounen” anime is one I will consider watching further (it has three more seasons). I just found Louise and Saito so sweet together as a pair.

Japanese Te Form Song

So I am trying to get into doing YouTube stuff (finally).

For this particular video, I had to relearn a lot of things, and I had to overcome all kinds of bouts with social anxiety and whatnot. I hope it turned out all right. ^^;

み, に and び go to んで
い, ち and り go to small っ and て
き to いて
ぎ to いで
