I’m not sure I can call 13 days a week.
Well, everything that’s going to air has aired in one form or another except for Spice and Wolf 2 (Wednesday) and Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 (Thursday), and technically, Modern Magic on Saturday. I have no intention of watching Spicy Wolf, and I’ve never really gotten along particularly well with the Noitamina offerings or Bones, so I really doubt I’ll pick that up either, but who knows. My Thursdays are wide open.
There’s a limited amount of time in the day, and since I’m one of the few, the proud, the people who don’t wait for subs, my schedule for watching stuff syncs up more or less with the actual broadcast schedule. Therefore, there’s only so much that I can deal with in a day, so here’s the quick list of all the shows over the past week (plus the ongoing
ones one I’m already following) along with a short blurb representing whatever the first thing that comes to mind when I think about the first episode with the side goal of hopefully infuriating as many people as possible. It’s often very much like shooting fish in a barrel with a bazooka. Comprehensive… it is not, but if you want more information, each one is linked to my post on it.
Anything that I am 100% certain I’m going to cover in the coming week gets a little crown, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stick with it past the next episode or two. Likewise, just because I’m not psyched about something doesn’t mean that I won’t pick it up after checking out a second episode. If you’ve got any input, flames, or desperate begging, go wild.
Bizarre as hell and blasts through at a breakneck pace, but a lot of fun.
The only way this could be more painfully generic if it came with a box of Toasted Os.
If not for the leaky vaginas, this really could be quite an enjoyable comedy. How often do you get to say that?
After two episodes, still floundering a bit to settle into its style and tone. Not really a great sign.
Yawn. Lesbians. And not the comedic aggressive type, not that this would be improved any by penises.
The censorship was easily the best part of the first episode, which was oddly satisfying in many ways.
The epitome of trying too hard. When has Imagin’s involvement ever made anything better?
While opium may be the choice of the masses, watching a bunch of girls on narcotics isn’t.
Given the staff cycling each episode, I’m hopeful that this will be overall better paced and less bizarre than the premier.
Like an illegal Russian bride, very pretty and totally incomprehensible, no wonder everybody seems so desperate to screw it.
C3H5N3O9, I choose you!
Not horrible, but pretty lacking in creativity. It wasn’t technically supposed to be the first episode though, so I’ll wait for that.
Three seasons in, I don’t think anybody’s confused about how they feel here.
Lesbians, sexual predators, and a really irritating whiny little killjoy. Eh. Maybe.
Disappointingly generic in a lot of ways, but still a pretty strong showing.
At this point, I’ve become one with my sarcasm.
I’m not committing yet, but right now my schedule is tentatively looking like:
Monday: GA Art Design Class
Seaday: Seagulls or Sea Story, and Juuden-chan (which airs late and may get regularly bumped to Thursdays anyway)
Friday: Bakemonogatari maybe
Saturday: Zetsubou Sensei and maybe Modern Magic or Canaan
Sunday: Tears to Tiara and probably Princess Lover!, maybe Kanamemo
Rather like last season, there’s quite the concentration on Wednesdays and the weekends for me. I’m glad there’s at least something on Monday and Friday this season.
