seitokai yakuindomo review

Genres:  comedy, slice of life, school

Themes: dirty jokes, harem, student council

Objectionable content: significant – mature themes including dirty and perverted jokes and miscommunications.

Takatoshi is a new student in the recently gender integrated school in the area his family moved too. On his first day he gets suckered and coerced into joining the student council so there can be a guy on it to vouch for all the new guys that go to the school. Little does he realize that they three girls on the student council are very off.

One girl is a short loli genius. Another is a rich airhead and the student council president is perfect, except that all of them are complete perverts.

Basically take any kind of bad miscommunication and joke, turn it into a sexual joke and then make all the girls ay it.

It honestly is a breath of fresh air so to speak as so many anime have the men making sexual harassment jokes, do it’s a little odd that the girls do. Especially since there’s a lot of the jokes.the anime is basically just comedy and school for what happens to the four members of the student council but having such an alternated storyline is refreshing as it gives it a different view. And honestly the jokes the girls do are so bad that I myself would end up being similar to takatoshi in that he tries to block their jokes at all times!

haiyore nyaruko san reveiw

Genres:  comedy, romance, sci-fi

Themes:  aliens, parody

Objectionable content:  very significant – extreme amounts of both violence, blood and sexual innuendo/ecchi.

Cthulu has entered anime! Okay not cthulu itself but the cthulu mythos from lovecraft’s novels at least have.

Basically the old gods of the cthulu mythos in lovecrafts novels are actually aliens, some good, some bad. The good ones seem to work for the cthulu corporation to keep peace in the universe, so when some bad aliens come to earth with is the entertainment capital of the universe to steal its doujinshi and capture humans for their slave trade. The nyarlotepian nyarko comes in to save them, them being a boy named mahiro yasaka. Little does he know that the only reason she saved him really is she likes him and that by liking him his life is about to be turned inside out!

Honestly, this anime has a lot of excess. Excess violence and excess ecchi. The entire thing is basically storied around nyarko trying to get into mahiro’s pants, and many points that they pull do not make sense. The only thing it has for it, is decent comedy, and very descriptive fight scenes, not many of them either. Simply put I did not think much of it.

New anime spotlight

Simply put instead of a full anime I’ve watched the first episodes of a few of the new anime coming out presently. Most only have one or two episodes out so the storyline still has room to grow for most so I shall not be judging them with a number but with just my thought on them from seeing the first episode.

Btoom!!

Genres: action, psychological, sci-fi

Themes: unknown( as in we don’t know yet)

Objectionable content:  intense violence and gore.

Okay so from the first look it seems that in the world there is an online game called btoom, in it people fight with sonar and bombs, that’s it. Sakamoto ryota is a college reject who lives with his mom and is the best player of btoom in japan who one day wakes up on a island with a pouch of bombs exactly like those in the game and then is attacked by another person who he ends up killing, violently.

Is it just me or does this sound like a combination of halo and bomber man? Honestly I’m not expecting too much from this anime personally as the plot thus far seems kind of dry to what it could be, and the action looks to be the only thing that’s good as the character interaction is very little.

 

Busou shinki

Genres: action, comedy, sci-fi, slice of life

Themes: living dolls, mecha

Objectionable content: light violence (so far)

Okay I seriously thought that the character in this were cheap knock off of infinite stratos when I first saw them honesty.

Basically in the world there are 15 cm, dolls called shinki who have personalities all their own who serve only their one master. These shinki can dawn armour to fight each other fpr multiple reasons.

The anime itself seems to be mostly following the high schools freshman rihito’s three shinki more than him in the anime and show the mischief and fun they get into. It is very comedic and does do a good job of explaining things when the action or story gets a little slow.

 

Girls und panzer

Genres: action, school, tanks, war

Themes:?

Objectionable content:  potential violence?

This anime ought to be paid for by the mmo world of tanks!

In a world where the art of combatting tanks is considered an art akin to flower arrangement there are schools that have it in their curriculum. Miho is a girl who has transferred schools to get away from her bad memories of this but as she transfers in they bring it back to this school and coerce her into it again.

We don’t see too much action in the first episode except for a foreshadow event at the start of the episode but this first episode does do a good job of setting up some background and character relations. I think this anime has the potential to be good or bad, though I must admit the animating for the tanks look s like they stole the sprites from world of tanks a bit as the tanks are all done.

 

oniai

Genres: comedy, romance, school

Themes: forbidden love, harem,

Objectionable content:  slight( well this is comedic incest)

Okay so why is it I’m getting a vibe similar to kisssxsis here? Oh wait that’s because they both have a major plot point of forbidden love to a sibling!!

Okay so Akito Himenokōji lives at his school dorms and his twin sister whom he has not seen for six years akiko has come to the same school and is going to be staying at the same dorms as him. Only thing is she’s a pervert who is intent on getting together with her brother, and the lengths and miscommunications between them are ridiculous indeed.

Honestly this one has a lot of potential as it’s a harem anime were akiko is fighting or her brothers love with three other girls but honestly it still just ends up being a forbidden love story, so if that’s your thing then here ya go

 

 

So that’s all I’ll be commenting on for now, but please do comment on what you think these anime shall become or whatever your thoughts on them may be!

 

Amaenaideyo!! + Amaenaideyo!! Katsu!!

Genres:  comedy, romance, supernatural

Themes: ecchi, fan service, harem

Objectionable content:  moderate – light violence and ecchi themes, partial nudity

Now I don’t know that much bout Buddhism but I do know that it tries to make people able to control their own desires and not have they run rampant. Knowing this I’m surprised Buddhist communities did not rage against this anime.

At the Saienji Buddhist temple that the main character ikkou’s grandmother runs all of the nuns and monks have the ability to exorcize spirits and angry ghosts. Ikkou being the only man there is surrounded with girls who all have brilliant skill in exorcism while he has none with one exception, when he gets aroused (usually by seeing one of them disrobed) he gains untold power, and then soon afterword’s becomes consumed by lust in what the nuns call his perverted rebound.

The story itself is about him and all the nuns trying to learn to control their own and his power but really half of the storyline is just there to provide fan service and harem ecchi to the viewer. The real storyline does not even really begin until a good two third through the first season and even in the second season when it is in full sing it looks like some parts were not thought out very well.
