Winter 2011 Anime Season – Concise First Impressions

Since I have only gotten around to doing a single First Impressions post, here are the rest of my first impressions put together in concise form.

The series I look forward to watching each week the most are listed first, and it goes down from there.

  • Amagami SS+ plus — First Impressions post can be found here. (Rating: Great)
  • Ano Natsu de Matteru — One of my favorites from this season. Even though the story has quite a few similarities to Onegai Teacher, I think it is easily the superior series. The first few episodes already demonstrate the complexity underlying this romantic comedy. (Rating: Great)
  • Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai! — Raising 3 kids as a single college student is not a simple feat. (Rating: Very Good)
  • Nisemonogatari — The sequel to Bakemonogatari. Koyomi certainly has a lot of female friends. (Rating: Great)

  • Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou — I didn’t think the daily lives of 3 high school boys would be so hilarious. (Rating: Great)
  • Mouretsu Pirates — I love the futuristic space travel setting. The technology shown in the series is impressive. (Rating: Very Good)
  • Rinne no Lagrange — The super energetic Madoka is what pulls this series forward. (Rating: Good)
  • Another — Just when I thought there wasn’t enough horror in it, gruesome deaths happen. (Rating: Good)

  • Senki Zesshou Symphogear — The concert scene in the first episode is very impressive. Other than that, I dislike Hibiki’s personality. (Rating: Good)
  • Area no Kishi — This series must have a record for how fast tragedy strikes the main character. A good adaptation of the soccer manga. (Rating: Good)
  • Recorder to Randoseru — If each episode wasn’t only 3 minutes long… (Rating: Good)
  • Brave 10 — The action scenes were pretty impressive. (Rating: Good)
  • Inu x Boku SS — I didn’t expect the supernatural to play such a large part in this series. (Rating: Good)
  • Aquarion Evol — I think I would appreciate this series more if I had seen the prequel.
  • New Prince of Tennis — Every time I see their special tennis moves, I can’t help but think of how absurd they are. (Rating: Decent)
  • Highschool DxD — Despite all the ecchi and nudity, the story is actually somewhat decent. (Rating: Decent)
  • Kill Me Baby — Eh, I don’t find the humor in this to be funny. (Rating: Mediocre)

    Wow, according to you everything is good except for Kill Me Baby, Prince of Tennis, and Highschool DxD (all three of which, uh, rightly deserved to be bad). How do you watch all this anime if all of them are good?!

    P.S. I was wondering who this figure haven person who followed me on twitter was; I never knew it was run by you, lol. Maybe I don’t follow this blog actively enough.

    Haha, yeah. I try to watch the new episodes right when they release so that I don’t fall behind. It only comes out to at most a few episodes a day.

    It’s okay, I haven’t been very active about blogging and following blogs either. >_<
