Late Happy New Year! And first round of Winter 2014 anime thoughts!

Argh! Being a NEET absolutely made me as lazy as you possibly can think of how. But no matter, with the new year comes (some) new spirit!!! And what better way than to start off with a bunch of surprisingly good bunch of anime!

Buddy Complex

Who the hell designs a self-destruct sequence with 5-minutes timers?

Sigh. Another generic mecha anime complete with generic OP and generic ED. I guess the premise is kind of interesting, but really if I paid more attention clipping my fingernails and not read the subs, I guess it’s a bit telling.

PuPiPo!

Well, the show certainly needs impact for the next episode

Ehh, I guess it’s nice for a short. Actually, if this was full length, it probably would be dead boring, or it would’ve done an opening episode like Kotoura!. Which I may need to finish at one point… Either way, since it’s a short, no harm done so far, albeit a bit bland, if not heart warming in some small way.

Well, whatever hype it has wasn’t that big, but lots of bloggers seem to like it, so I came in with some trepidation. Should have believed in the afterhype, since it reminds me of Nichibros in some way. Which is always a good thing, in my book!

Best "WTF?!" face for the new year!

Too bad it’s only half length, but maybe that would make it somewhat better than Nichibros, since there’s a few from the latter that just falls flat for me. Or maybe there’s just not enough material? I should do research if I’m going to say those kinds of stuff…

Exactly.

Exactly.

And it has an amazeballs ED!!!

On first starting this, I don’t really have much expectations. But really the turning point for me is this guy’s VA:

Oh Zetsubou-sensei, I recognize almost everywhere you voice act!

Now it’s on. And my believe in his skill isn’t misplaced, at least for this anime.

I suppose this is not meant to be funny, but considering the VA...

But really, I should be fair and let the anime stand on its own. I guess it has an interesting premise, although I feel like this is – while not quite so – a bit overdone. The female MC isn’t that annoying, and it’s a nice change to have someone that doesn’t need saving much. The coming fights should be good based on the first fight at the start. But really, I just have this overall “fun” feeling the whole episode.

Not sorry at all for doing this

Overall, a great start, and not a drop to be sighted yet. I already have a few that I will drop with utmost prejudice, only for some reason I still want to torture myself watching it for a bit…
