Rest of Summer 2011 Season – First Impressions

I decided to simply throw together the rest of my first impressions into one post since I’m already greatly behind on them.

So here are some shorter than usual impressions for the rest of the series I’m watching:

  • Blood-C – Even though Clamp’s character designs are nice, the plot feels somewhat weak since so far it has been a repeat of Saya attending school during the day and then hunting monsters at night. There is still time for it to develop into something more compelling, but at the moment it isn’t on the same level as Blood+. (Rating: Decent)
  • Mayo Chiki! – I initially didn’t think I would enjoy this series, but somehow its slapstick comedy mixed with some harem and ecchi aspects all blends together quite nicely. (Rating: Decent)
  • The Idolmaster – The flow of the story is not consistent enough. Each episode feels like a random snapshot of a day at their studio. It is also annoying that for the most part each girl follows a different standard anime character archetype, but I guess that’s to be expected from a dating sim adaptation. (Rating: Mediocre)

  • Yuru Yuri – Four middle school girls hang out in the former tea club room and essentially do whatever they want. It’s a good slice of life series that reminds me of a bunch of other ones which had 4 main characters as well. (Rating: Good)
  • Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi – The story is actually better than I expected. There’s some weird multiple world dimensional rift thing going on, but I don’t think 12 episodes is enough to fully develop it. (Rating: Decent)
  • Rou Kyuu Bu! – A basketball series about a team of elementary school girls. Ehh, I guess it shows them overcoming their flaws and working together as a team, which is always good. However, stuff like Airi being afraid of the basketball along with having a complex about her “tall” height is quite annoying. (Rating: Mediocre)
  • R-15 – Dropped after the 1st episode. I knew I shouldn’t have watched it. (Rating: Bad)
