Other Stuff I Watched In Autumn So Far – Part I

Rosario + Vampire CAPU2

What can I say? This feels like just another episode from the previous season, with introduction of a new permanent character among other things. Kokoa, Moka's half sister nicely fills in the tsundere spot that Tsukune's harem is lacking. The routine remains the same, with True Ancestor Moka popping up near the end to kick ass, though we're treated to a slightly different transformation sequence this time around. To be honest, the only real good thing about this sequel would be the OP and ED theme by Nana Mizuki which have been looping on my playlist ever since the single was released.

Kuroshitsuji

I've been suffering withdrawal symptoms due to the lack of FABULOUS and have banked on Black Butler to ease the pain. The result? Like a maiden who got swept off her feet, Sebastian's demeanor and those soul piercing devilish red eyes had me swooning all over. Again, this is supposedly shounen, though it feels more like a black comedy of sorts, as it switches from serious to plain hilarious at a drop of a hat, with some minor supernatural elements thrown in for good measure. But really, I'm just in it for the FABULOUS.

ToraDora!

Believe it or not, I was quite the delinquent in school, so I can somehow relate to this show. However, I did not come into contact with feisty girls who would verbally and physically abuse me, which is unfortunate, since I would have turned out to be a better person today, but I digress. Taiga is really just your cookie-cutter Tsundere, who's also a clumsy person to boot, though she resorts to violence to overcome it. As such, ToraDora! doesn't exactly break the mould at this point, but being a masochist at heart, I would gladly put up with that kind of torture just to see how the series fares later on.

    Exactly. Plus, in the broadcast ED they are dancing, which helps. They should just do that for 20 minutes

  4. Whoa massive taiga :mrgreen:

    I’m actually pretty interested in how this show (toradora) is gonna turn out, given all the ‘controversy’ surrounding it :cool:
    Jason’s last blog post..Fumo~ Fumofumofumo~ FUMO!!

  5. I’m so excited for Kuroshitsuji and Toradora XD
    I’ve read the Toradora manga, and I think things pan out quite nicely so far in it! I actually really start to like Taiga haha.
    Kuroshitsuji, yup I’m just swooning XD

  6. You do not want to mess with Taiga. Also when are you gonna do a review of To Aru Majutsu no Index?

  7. ” Like a maiden who got swept off her feet,”
    ugghh… thanks shin, thanks for the horrible image…

    “Believe it or not, I was quite the delinquent in school,”
    from delinquent to sexually perverted shota/loli/yaoi/other… is it too late to go back being a delinquent?

    “since I would have turned out to be a better person today”
    shotas and lolis of the world would be much safer without your perversion around… damn you educational systhem, why cant you recruit more Tsundere girls!!!!

    “being a masochist at heart, I would gladly put up with that kind of torture just to see how the series fares later on”
    you could always go back to watch code geass R1 and R2 nonstop…

  8. Shin, join me in my “Rosario+Vampire Capu2 is GOOD” campaign. :neutral:

  9. ToraDora! won me over with Ryuuji’s killer stare, but a loli tsundere is fine too!

    I haven’t watched Rosario + Vampire CAPU2, so no comment…, I think I will give the first episode a try even thought I did finished the first season…Same goes for Kuroshitsuji…>_>

    53RG10′s last blog post..CLANNAD ~After Story~ – GAR for Yuusuke

  10. Ahh ToraDora :cool: The novels on it are pretty good :]
    EDIT: Didn’t know they made an anime of it :shock: I guess I’m back to watching anime for abit.

  11. TORA TORA TORA!!!!

    Too bad there aren’t any subs for Kuroshitsuji yet. :oops:

    >>Believe it or not, I was quite the delinquent in school,

    No offense but you sure look the part of a delinquent. :cool:
    Setsuna-san’s last blog post..Toradora 01

  12. Wow, this looks like a very good animes……. :neutral:

    Vampires, Butler, and Yankis, I think I gone and died and went to heaven :cry:

    Hahahaha!!!! God, I love being a anime and manga otaku!

  13. I was looking forward to the ToraDora! anime…until I read the manga and the novel. I was disappointed.

    And since anime is always worse than the source material, I don’t think I’ll be checking it out.

    Johnson Huang’s last blog post..Urd & World of Elegance – The Arrival

  14. I just hope they don’t add even more violence – people who skimmed the novels are already calling Taiga a Louise 2. Upping the physical violence in the anime will spell doom for the show. :P

    Johnson Huang: The appeal of the manga and the novels is that the situation isn’t a typical ‘guy falls for tsundere’ scenario. In fact, it’s more a ‘guy ends up taking responsibility for the feeding and general management of tsundere in order to get tsundere to help him hook up with her best friend’.

  15. I’m hoping you watch GA-REI -zero- and Mouryou no Hako …. no one’s planning on watching them except me /sigh

    blissmo’s last blog post..GAREI-ZERO- 01: let’s watch some kick-ass fight scenes together?

  16. ToraDora’s already in my watch list. Thumbs up for tsundere-asskicking-loli-bitch. But i can’t bring myself to watch Capu2 after the fiasco that the first season was. Frankly, i liked the manga better. At least then we had GARRRRRR Tsukune.

    Aoshi’s last blog post..RAGE 9000

  17. The OP and ED songs for Rosario to Vampire are stuck on my head… Though I’m still not convinced to watch the show… Kuroshitsuji pwns everything at the first week of this fall season. That’s all I have to say.

    kanzeon’s last blog post..Kannagi: 01 – Is this anime about showbiz?

  18. “Believe it or not, I was quite the delinquent in school”

    I won’t. :mrgreen:
    TheBigN’s last blog post..Not anime, except maybe in the Japanese sense

  19. I should really not have enjoyed ToraDora, but it was cute. Probably it will devolve into a steaming heap of anime lovecom clichΓ©s, but I’ll watch for a while.

    otou-san’s last blog post..Final pimpage

  20. I still have not gotten to watching some actual new fall anime but I’m really looking forward to watching Kuroshitsuji now.Also you seriously never had girls like that in your school!? My schools full of them! :lol:

    Mini’s last blog post..Hurray for junjo Romantica 2!

  21. ToraDora is hilarious. I’m also looking forward to Kuroshitsuji but I’m still waiting for the subs… ^^

  22. tsun-tsun tsundere lol yeah Toradora is the epic-est!

  23. @Calawain

    Hehe, I want to believe this will end up half decent… Okay, who am I kidding?

    @Cokematic

    I know. The only females that hit me were the teachers. :cry:

    @Panther

    Blame Code Geass for introducing this unhealthy addiction.

    @Omisyth

    Indeed. :wink:

    @Jason

    You didn’t hear it from me, but I think there’s just to much hype surrounding this; It looks like could win but there’s just something lacking about it. We’ll see.

    @YukiKumo

    Really now. I want to like ToraDora! so that sure sounds reassuring. NEEDS MORE BLACK BUTLER SUBS!

    @Anime Loving Republican

    YES YOUR MAJESTY!

    @EvilDevil

    That’s right, if I was abused by cute girl and showed my place as nothing more than her mongrel slave, I would have become a useful addition to society today. Alas, I ended up being a menace that preys on little children and needs to be placed behind bars. :oops:

    @Hynavian

    Well, the songs are good, so I guess that’s a start? :razz:

    @53RG10

    No rush, there’s plenty of good stuff this season! :mrgreen:

    @JustVisting

    slowpoke.mkv :razz:

    @Setsuna

    THE WORLD NEEDS MORE FABULOUSHITSUJI! You’re right, I do. You know, being brought up in Lower Klang has that effect on people.

    @Johnson Huang

    The very reason why I abstained from them; Anime adaptations more likely than not can never compare and I like delving into the unknown hoping for a surprise, be it good or bad.

    @Haesslich

    You mean she isn’t already? Heck, I think she’s even more prone to violence than Louise; She tried to murder Ryuji! :razz:

    @blissmo

    There, there, I intend on trying them out. :kiss:

    @Aoshi

    As a fan of the manga, you should have some faith in Gonzo!

    @kanzeon

    Sadly I have nothing else to convince you with. :swt: NEEDS MORE FABULOUSHITSUJI!

    @BigN

    Thanks? :lol: I was however, a peeping tom too if you’d like to know.

    @otou

    There’s potential in it for sure, but yeah, it could end up being just another show of its genre.

    @Mini

    I guess there were some, but none of them were hot loli tsunderes. :sad:

    @Arachnicus

    Aren’t we all? :grin:

    @Kairu

    I was right when I said everyone loves this then. :lol:

  24. >>Thanks? :lol: I was however, a peeping tom too if you’d like to know.

    OH YOU. So were you peeping at a primary school? :grin:
    Setsuna-san’s last blog post..Spice and Wolf II Announced.

  25. Kuroshitsuji Good show…. Rosario anime which has potential to be good and finnaly Tora its BEST… (in my opinion)

  26. shin: No, she’s not. Especially not in the source material. She only tried to kill him the once in the novel and manga, and almost never hits him. She yells at him and makes demands, but he can make her back off… or she decides not to push things too much, since they have a mutual understanding, and a grudging like on her side, since he doesn’t demand she act like a good little girl. She can be herself around him, which means a lot. That, and she sure as hell isn’t screwed of him, which means a lot for him. Oh, and the fact their best friends are the people they’re trying to hook up with doesn’t hurt either, since that means all four of them get to hang around together with the objects of their respective crushes.

  27. “Believe it or not, I was quite the delinquent in school”

    Reading this makes me LOL. You’ll know if you dig Ryuuji’s insides. For me, I’d say I wish I had his housekeeping skills. :smile:

  28. @Setsuna

    Yes, my childhood was filled with wonderful moments like those, but it didn’t prevent me from being what I am today. :sad:

    @Ryvious

    Let’s hope so. :wink:

    @Haesslich

    Oh, I like that implied build up of sexual tension between the two. Here’s to hoping they one day blow and start engaging in wild beastly fornication. :twisted:

    @Shiro

    Ah ha, I guess that’s where our similarities end, I personally want his pet parrot too; It looks like it’s cumming every minute with that expression. :grin:

  29. Ahaha Shin-san nice Pic :D Index :kiss:

    High school was then, BUT this is now, I guess… yes, and I’d like to see a mugshot of you when you’re locked up… :razz:

    I see you replaced your emptiness of fabulousness with the awesome butler… this will be amusing for a long while…

    Needs some Rie moaning like it was in Mnemosyne… :twisted:

  32. What anime is your little gif icon from?
