Anime I have watched so far this year…

Truthfully, I have only started watching anime early this year so the amount of anime I watched is incomparable to all you anime fans out there. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank all you people that are actually reading my blog. It feels like I’m the kouhai here, but is actually writing about anime. However inexperienced I am, I hope that you people out there will tolerate me and continue to support me. (And my real life friends don’t know that I am writing a blog so I’m actually quite lonely here in the Net. So don’t bully me. Haha.)

Anyway, in case you don’t already know, my name is Daniel See and I opened this WordPress account only early this month. Since then I have reviewed some anime and done some crazy shit with my WordPress account. (Not really.) I have reviewed anime such as K Project, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, GTO, Bakemonogatari & Nisemonogatari. I also had short stint where I drew comparisons between Kuruko no Basuke and Slam Dunk. I also did a little contest between the best comedy anime I’ve watched so far (Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Seitokai Yakuindomo and Nisekoi).

So what have I finished?

ANIME (According to timeline)

Kuruko no Basuke (Season 1 & Season 2)

Kuroko_no_Basuke_color

Albeit having ridiculously super-powered moves and even more ridiculous plot twists, KnB never failed to provide us with spectacular action and a fast-paced plot that enthralled all anime fans, sports lovers and geeks alike. The anime was great and the openings and endings (especially the first OP of the second season, The Other Self by GRANRODEO) provided the perfect finishing to the anime series. Wonderful.

Sword Art Online Season 1

sao-sword-art-online-31982400-1920-1200

An average anime with an average plot. The only thing that got me watching it is the chemistry between the lovey-dovey couple, Kirito and Asuna. Then they had to drown it out with a harem. Huh. Though, I got to say the fight scenes were a little short of greatness (which is better than ‘good’) and the soundtrack was awesome (especially the openings by LiSA and Aoi Eiru). But honestly, I doubt it could get any better with the second season. I watched the first few episodes and feel like it’s seriously boring. With a capital and bolded ‘B’. I mean, you had to talk about nonsensical bullshit for 8 fucking minutes in the very first episode, didn’t you?

Bakemonogatari & Nisemonogatari

IMG_0597-0.JPG

Seriously, this is the most mind-blowing fuck that I have ever watched. The best, I should add. The chemistry between the oddballs characters and the pull-no-punches kind of presentation was definitely the biggest culture shock I’ve ever had. Not your typical anime, yes, but enjoyable. Very.

Durarara!

DurarDurarara

Another dysfunctional, oddball anime. Yup, I watched it. The unique kind of plot presentation and usage of flashbacks were definitely one-of-a-kind. Plus, the characters themselves seem to having so much fun that I couldn’t help it but join in as well. If there’s one word that I can use to describe this anime, it’s “FUN”. I love it.

Highschool of the Dead

Highschool-of-the-dead-

Not your typical harem-action anime. Yeah, right. It’s every bit the stereotypical zombie anime with stupid, groaning zombies and a dashing, heroic main male protagonist. With an anime twist. The guy is surrounded by the typical anime harem consisting of the childhood friend, the senpai-ass-kicker, the tsudere, the loli and the watermelons (You’ll know if you’ve watched this). Hehe. Unapologetic fan-service and a ridiculously programmed physics engine makes this anime one that you should leave your brains at the door when you watch it. Seriously, the boobs have brains of their own. I mean, they can fucking DODGE BULLETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No shit.

Nekomonogatari Kuro & Monogatari Second Season

Monogatari_Series-Second_Season

Well, Nekomonogatari was a little tad boring ’cause it just elaborated on what happened in Golden Week when Black Hanekawa appeared. No new characters were introduced and it was all talk as per usual, but somehow the jokes just didn’t go so well without the rest of the gang. Sigh~And as for Monogatari Second Season, it was a lot less interesting as the first season. Araragi has just established himself as the world’s biggest lolicon, siscon and hentai pervert in the universe and Senjougahara became friends with Hanekawa!!!!!!!!!!! ARGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yup, that’s serious things have become. Anyway, unlike it’s predecessors Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari, Monogatari Second Season is now more plot-based, which means there is less bullshit and more straight-to-the-point, which makes it less stand out, provided that the plot isn’t exactly the main star of the anime. But anyway, fans of Bakemonogatari and Nisemonogatari will watch this. For those who are new to this anime series, just watch the first season first. (Get it? First season first?? Hmm??)

Clannad & Clannad Afterstory

IMG_0625

Did you know that Clannad originated from a adult visual novel? Not sure what that meant but I’m pretty sure that the “adult” part must mean something, right? So, with the anime Clannad, they decided to please the adult fans and follows the story and elaborated on the characters’ (Read: Girls) backstories. Clannad was a good anime with good humour but weak plot provided that the producers probably only had the adults in mind, leaving the rest of us ‘kids’ to fuck ourselves with the plot. But the Clannad fanbase grew bigger. So they decided to make Clannad Afterstory as a continuation of the story and the BIGGEST CRYFEST IN ANIME. So, Clannad? Good but not memorable. Clannad Afterstory? You won’t forget the tears you cried for an anime. Not that I’ve cried watching this. Really. Honestly. Well, maybe tears welled in my eyes but they didn’t fall and I didn’t rub them away so…I guess that’s not crying, right? Right?

Great Teacher Onizuka

IMG_0619

Lol madness. A crazy teacher with a fetish for highschool girls teaches a class full of delinquents. Wait, haven’t I heard of this plot before somewhere? Yes, you did! Congratulations! You’ve found the mother of all crazy-teacher-teaches-a-crazy teacher, the ancestor of that genre. Although it may sound stereotypical but what the heck, apparently it wasn’t back then. The humour is just crazy and the characters added together are a ticking timebomb, however if you ask me, the humour wasn’t exactly very original (it all revolved around highschool kids or middle aged men, and there were better anime with and it all ran on the line between humour and plain awkwardness. The anime may be classic, but ain’t exactly the best comedy anime there is to offer.

Fate Stay/Night (I apologise to all Fate Stay/Night fans but I’m gonna pan it on my blog. Sorry. Don’t read this if you’re a huge fan)

Fate - Stay Night

I spent 5 months watching all 24 episodes of this anime, and the only thing that kept me going was Fate/Zero and self-perseverance. Honestly, even I did not know how on earth did I do it. It’s retarded, it’s stupid and the whole thing just sucks. The main character, Emiya Shirou is a whiner and crybaby that just gets in the way, the course of actions of the Masters in the series is just illogical and the plot is just plain stupid. Like, “We’re gonna increase your magical essence or something, so let’s kiss and hug each other on a bed.” Like what???? Seriously, you cannot expect me to believe people who’ve said they’ve watched this anime like, say 10 times before. I mean, I struggled through the first time, why on earth would I want to watch it the second time? The only saving grace was Saber but even she got involved in the mind-boggling madness. And I thought that she was supposed to snap Shirou out of it!!! Ugh!!!

Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

FMA-Brotherhood-full-metal-alchemist

I’ve watched Fullmetal Alchemist before as a kid, and one thing I must say is FMA:B is definitely superior compared to the original FMA, in terms of soundtrack, plot, character development and content maturity. And the ending is definitely much better than the original. Honestly, I won’t say much ’cause you’ve read this before somewhere on the line. So… Next!

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin (Nanana’s Buried Treasure)

Ryuunnana

Funny, intriguing and definitely one of the most underrated anime series of the year. And when I tell people about it, they look at me as if I’ve gone mad. Sigh, what a waste. I loved it. I loved the character development, the plot and the premise of the story. Although it might not be the most original, but in terms of presentation, it was quite good. Enjoyable, but the name’s too long. Not to mention, cheesy. Sigh~For the want of a name, the anime is lost…And the drawings were…terrific!!!!!!Awesome!!! I especially love the eyes!!!!!

No Game, No Life

no-game-no-life

Possibly the most overrated anime series of 2014. I had to spend the entire March, April and May, listening to people singing it’s praises all the way to December. Even now, I still hear people tell me how awesome No Game, No Life is. Well, it’s not as if it’s terrible or something, but it ain’t exactly Oscars fodder. Just saying. The color palette range is quite vast however this is not exactly the first anime to use different colors to illuminate it’s settings and background. The plot is quite interesting but it isn’t exactly the most original and intriguing not to mention the elaboration of the sub arcs suffer from over-complexity. The characters were good and quite funny but not exactly the funniest. It may be good, but it isn’t great. I, for one, won’t put it in my top 10 anime list. But I must say the anime opening, this game by Suzuki Konomi is splendid. Well, just saying.

The Legend of Korra Book 1 & Book 2

THE LEGEND OF KORRA

 

Officially, I hate the so-called “anime fans” when all they’ve watched is Avatar: The Last Airbender or Avatar: The Legend of Korra. Then, they’ll act all holey-foley, proclaiming to the world that they are anime fans. Seriously, I wouldn’t call Avatar a real anime. I mean, it’s not even Japanese, for goodness sake! Just because it’s art style resembles that of a Japanese anime, doesn’t exactly make it an anime, ok? On a side note, despite hating such people, I don’t hate the series. None of the characters are particularly very memorable but the humour was. Kinda. Well, who would forget the catchphrase :”The platypus-bear is pooping money!!!!!!” Not to mention that the action sequences were impressive. Despite it being genuinely American, it was kinda entertaining and deserves your attention. Though I would like to clarify: This is not a real Japanese anime!!!!!!!!!!

Attack on Titan

attack on titan

Yes, I’ve watched it but since I’ve watched it quite late into the year, I was kinda spoilt about many things like how badass Levi is and so on. (I’ll spare you the details to prevent you from being spoilt as well) All because I had to ask the stupid question: “Who’s Annie?” Maybe because of that, I didn’t exactly enjoyed the anime very much and at the end of the anime, I was left with heaps of corpses and no answer. I mean, it seems like the people from the Army Corps are unlimited or something ’cause no matter how many people die, the ranks don’t seem to decrease. Not only that, the closure is terrible and I can see no end to this anime. Really, how long is this going to take? And I heard from people reading the manga that Levi has died. Oops. How is Mikasa going to handle the situation alone? I think by the time this anime end, everyone excluding Eren is going to die. But one thing I must say, the animation was terrific. I mean, the action scenes where the cannon fodder…erm…I mean, humans fly around like medieval Spider-men and women were absolutely stunning. So is the blood splattering all over the place. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Guilty Crown

guilty_crown

Everything from the character development to the plot, is creepy. Totally hideous. I watched it for Inori, the pink-haired girl, the lead singer of Egoist. And she ****. ****. And to think I watched all 24 episodes of this **** to watch her ****. ****. Anyway, if you’re new to anime, watch this. Because you’ll probably just ignore all the hideous parts and watch it for the action and Shu-Inori romance. But for us anime fans, sorry, go fly kite.

Arppegio of Blue Steel (ARS Nova)

Arpeggio-of-Blue-Steel-Ars-Nova-

If all the ships in the world have Mental Models wouldn’t that be great? Like, the captain of the ships would be so happy. Just saying. The anime revolving around futuristic ships and submarines and a young man’s quest to save the world. As per usual. This anime is quite entertaining. The highlight of this anime is the great underwater action scenes. Despite the limited weapons variety (corrosive tornadoes and ultra gravitron cannon), the show manages to impress us with the fast-paced action sequences and strategic set-pieces. The characters themselves are all really entertaining, I mean, most of the characters are A.I of the ships in the show as such, they’re ships, not human beings. The underlying theme of the anime series revolves around the ships thus they easily stole the limelight from their human counterparts. The only thing I want to complain about is the rigid, 3D-based animation of the humans which makes them look plastic-ky. But what the heck, Takao’s booty looks fabulous whether it’s plastic or otherwise. Just saying.

K project

IMG_0608

The genre of this show is ‘shoujo’ but I think this is all ‘shonen’ to me. This show reminds me of a certain ‘Durarara!’ in terms of it’s dimension-jumping presentation of the plot and the wacko characters. The only thing that this anime lacks is a clear explanation to what on earth is actually happening. But heck, they do make up by giving us the ‘Shiro-Kuro’ chemistry, which is the chemistry between the two main characters. All in all, the anime is entertaining and you should watch this.

Slam Dunk

IMG_0599

It’s Slam Dunk. What do you expect from a legendary sports anime? ‘Nuf said.

Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

Gekkan_Shōjo_Nozaki-kun

Yup, it’s a comedy anime and I’ve reviewed it. Please read my review. I’m too tired to write it again.

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

Read here.

Seitokai Yakuindomo

Read here. Again.

Akame ga Kill

akame-ga-kill

Finally, we’ve reached the winter 2014 release. Phew~ Finally. Anyway, Akame ga Kill is a mediocre anime that tried to make it as big as possible. And well, it succeeded. Almost. The plot wasn’t exactly original but the presentation of the plot was definitely unorthodox. And the gamble paid off. I love the way the anime pits two different sides that are almost equally powerful and have them fight each other. Not to mention the fact that the enemy, the so-called opposing side were just about as, even more lovable than the good side. And the so-called antagonist, General Esdeath, hmhm, I love her. Seriously. Way more than I love Akame. Shit, I don’t even know why Tatsumi chose **** over **** when ***** is just the standard ****. Like what the hell. And they had to **** ******** and  *******. Why??????!!!!!!!!! Honestly, I kinda feel that the producers are trying to squeeze the most shock value out of the anime. I’m not going to condemn them for that but some might. In a nutshell, this anime is DEFINITELY NOT your average anime but I wouldn’t go so far to call it the best or second best or anything like that. But hey, it’s enjoyable. Go watch it. Don’t bother with all those people telling you that Akame ga Kill is just average or stereotypical or boring because it is definitely NOT any of the above.

Madan no Ou to Vanadis

mfbj1007_oreto01_cover

Now, THIS is your normal harem/ecchi/fantasy anime. The only thing that stands out is the animation of the boobs. Shiny and bouncy. And humougous. And everything else is dull and grey to make the boobs stand out more. Now, that’s normal.

Hanamonogatari

Hanamonogatari1

Hey, our favorite tomboy/pervert/homosexual girl in Hanamonogatari has returned! However, she’s lost her ecchi-ness. Now, she’s become a normal hormonal teenager with trust issues and hormonal issues. Now it’s just plain boring. Sigh~ please let Tsukimonogatari be more interesting…

Conclusion:

Anyway, this is it. The number of anime I’ve watched this year (not inclusive of long running anime, like Bleach, Naruto). Not much, I know but hey, what the heck, my job isn’t to watch anime. So whatever.

Anyway, feel free to comment on my post and let me know what you think or let me know what anime you would like reviewed. If you liked this post, please support by visiting my site at seeanimeondaniel.wordpress.com

Final Battle!! The fight for the throne of comedy anime!!

Finally, my comedy marathon has finally come to an end, and I want to end with a bang. So, I decided that I would do the review on Nisekoi last. Originally I was about to review the Nisekoi anime the first thing in conjunction with the 150th issue of the Nisekoi manga but then…I couldn’t finish the Nisekoi anime in time so, I’ll let it pass a week before I do it. So, well…Here I am! Nisekoi,here I come!!!

 

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0628.png

Nisekoi is one of the first manga I’ve started reading. Back then, it was still fresh and funny thus I had an absolute great first impression. I loved it, I read it during my tuition, I read it during school and I read it even though I definitely have more important stuff to do like exams and whatnots. And during that period of time, I was grinning idiotically all the time while reading the manga on my phone. I really enjoyed it. So it’s probably because of my past experience, that I’ve cranked up the level so high that the anime has become faultier than fault plates of the Earth in my eyes. So, I can’t say for real whether my review is as accurate as it should be…

Anyway, this anime is all about clíches. There’s the clíched romantic plot about how a boy during his childhood years made a promise with a certain girl. Then after 10 years, they met, not recognizing each other and not knowing that they met and made the above said promise when they were a child. And the story goes like Yadda yadda yadda yadda yadda. There you have it, the typical boy-meets-girl plot.

But the characters…are whoa!!! Normally, the main female character is a shy and sweet girl rite? “No!!! Screw that,” Nisekoi said. “I shall destroy all these stereotypes with my bare hands!!!” And thus, the main female character is born, Kirisaki Chitoge. And her nickname is “Gorilla”. Go figure.

Normally, you think that the male protagonist would be a handsome guy with bewitching eyes that would remind you of a certain sparkling-in-the-sun vampire but no! Nisekoi proclaimed to the world: “I hate the world as it is!!!!!!Die, you fucking bishonens!!!!DIIIIIIEEEEEE!!!!!” And thus, the male protagonist is born, Raku Ichijo. And his nickname is “Beansprout”. Oh, the girls are gonna be SO mad.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0668.jpg

Add the multiple oddball characters used to counter the stereotypes you see in shoujo manga and add ridiculous but fascinating setting and you have Nisekoi.

Odd but fun. It probably is the brainchild of someone who hated shoujo manga with a passion and decided to make a joke out of it just for fun. And the joke turned out to be surprisingly popular so they made it into an anime.

I love how the author purposely pits these different characters together and force them to fall in love. Even though the plot was seemingly scripted, the plot was not at all clanky and it was full of surprises. Not to mention that it was unapologetic in making the manga so anti-mainstream that it became fun.

However, that is the manga. As for the anime, it seemed like it lost quite many elements from the manga. Even though the plot was roughly the same, however, I can’t feel the same vibe coming from the anime. It wasn’t as naughty as it should be and due to deliberately scripted plot, the plot seemed so clíched that I could not continue watching it at times which wasn’t a problem in the manga.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0624-0.jpg

As opposed to the manga which was supposed to be anti-shoujo and anti-mainstream, the producer of the anime seems content with it being a…let’s see…another mainstream genre: Harem. Soon, the seemingly charming characters become shrieky, high school girls that blushed at the slightest bit of breeze.

Now, Nisekoi has become the standard entry of ‘pure harem anime’ where the plot revolves only around a group of clingy girl characters chasing a particular dense male lead for the stupidest reasons ever and nothing else. But…who ever said that’s a bad thing, right?

If I were a harem lover, Nisekoi will be a must-watch. I mean, what’s better than a pure harem anime which has a whole load of girl characters with different personalities with no plot whatsoever to distract you? Plus…THERE’S THE MOST ADORABLE GIRL CHARACTER IN THE WHOLE OF THE ANIME REALM, ONODERA KOSAKI!!!!!!!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!Raku Ichijo, I shall not let you get your dirty, filthy hands all over you!!!!!!!!!!!!GET OFFA HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0664.png

But if you’re a harem hater, well, you’ve have probably stopped somewhere in the third paragraph or something. So, there’s no doubt that anyone who hates harem anime won’t watch this because this IS a HAREM anime. So, it would be pointless telling anyone that this isn’t a harem anime so forget it. But anyone should read the manga since the manga didn’t quite start out as a harem manga but what the heck, no harem haters are here so who am I talking to?

And oh, on a side note, there may not be any form of plot to distract you from the onslaught of the harem comedy but don’t worry, there’s plenty of fan service to just that. Just don’t expect nud….hold on, I think there is nudity!!! Curses!!!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0667.png

As a conclusion, I would like to conclude that Nisekoi manga is a great manga. In my humble opinion, it is a splendid manga that succeeded in squeezing as much fun out of the stereotypes in the anime world today. As for the anime, I think it succeeded in creating a pure form of harem anime but failed in capturing and the translating the essence of the original work manga into an anime. But nonetheless, it’s an interesting harem anime. So, as per usual, watch this. It may surprise you.


And this concludes my comedy anime marathon. My favourite comedy anime is of course, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou with Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun coming in as a close second. Seitokai Yakuindomo came in as third.

But what are yours? What say you? Do you agree with me or not? I’ll be coming up with a little poll to know which comedy anime is the world’s favourite. So, do let me know which are yours? After all, America is a democratic country. I’m not an American but hey, who gives?

Anyway, feel free to comment on my post and let me know what you think or let me know what anime you would like reviewed. If you liked this post, please support by visiting my site at seeanimeondaniel.wordpress.com

Battle!!!Fight for comedy anime throne!!Extra-How to build a harem!!!

Harem anime is so common nowadays that I would’ve swear that the Japanese government is the one behind this anime phenomenon to counter the decreasing birth rate and thus, the declining economy. As much as you may hate them, along with fan service, they are ever present in modern day anime. Not to mention that, some of us anime watchers may like or even adore that stuff. Thus, after watching a considerable amount of harem anime and reading harem manga (and sometimes even hentai manga), I bring you tips from the anime realm on HOW TO BUILD A HAREM AND BE THE HAREM LORD!!!!

1) You must have a considerably good looks. But NOT TOO GOOD LOOKING! Good looking people can’t build a harem, they get a fan base! (refer to picture below) And trust me, you don’t want a fan base. They’re annoying, noisy and clingy. And girls that are clingy are like leeches, sucking blood off a guy’s dick. I mean, metaphorically of course. It’s not…anything you think it is…and…yeah…I’m don’t…Whatever.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0658.jpg

You can’t look too stupid/shabby/ugly/fat/short/chubby either. Or you’ll end up like this. (Refer to picture below)

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0656.jpg
Wait!! What’s he holding?? A girl’s hand!!! He does have a harem!!! Ah…logic…it makes perfect sense…

If you’re either too good-looking or ugly, by the way, then you must have at least inner beauty! Like be a gentleman…But…even if you don’t…(Refer to picture below)

The-World-God-Only-Knows-Wallpaper-HD-1

 

You can still own a harem…

But you absolutely must be…(Wait for it)…(WAIT FOR IT)…fickle-minded.Like bowing all the time. And let girls be like: “Don’t do that! Oh, it’s so embarrassing! But so sweet…” . Like this guy!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0655.png
2) You must be denser than dense. No, no, that’s not enough! You must be densest of the dense, and denser of the densest and denser than mercury and motha’fucking reinforced concrete and densest of the densest material on earth. And yes, denser than unobtanium, or whatever bloody metal they inject into Wolverine’s claws or something. And all you have to do is say, “Eh?” everytime a girl comes near you or does anything that turn you on and shrug it off. It’s tried-and-tested. Trust me, I know. Our master of “Eh?”s, Raku Ichijo, protagonist and harem lord of Nisekoi is here to teach you how!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0657.jpg

Eh??!!!!!


Like that, got it?

3) And the most important thing is…YOU MUST BE SURROUNDED BY GIRLS FIRST!!!!!! Don’t think girls will actually fall from the sky or something, you must take the first initiative! No matter in whatever you do, you must plan ahead. Always remember: In harem anime, the only reason to why a guy can get a harem as easy as drinking water without planning ahead is because the guy has a “God”, the author that’s always looking out for him. Unless you pray a lot, (though I sincerely doubt God will actually give you a harem) you must look out for yourself! You’re three years old? No problem! Make a lot of female friends at that age, and by the time you’re a teenager, you’ll be surrounded by tonnes of childhood (female) friends!! A harem is formed! Hurrah! (Refer to picture below)

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/aba/80197493/files/2014/12/img_0659.jpg

 

Already a teenager? No problem, go running around the school corridors a lot with a piece of bread in your mouth. That way, you can bang into tonnes of girls that will later be your girlfriends/harem member/lover. Though this guy does it all the time, but till now he’s still single…(Refer to below)

IMG_0633

Either that, or you can go to a former all-girls school or a school where the boys-to-girls ratio is about 1:500. That’s where the girls are all crazy and are sex addicts. Then after that, you’ll have 50% of the school’s population staring intently at your crotch. Like this guy over here. (Refer to picture below)

seitokai_yakuindomo

You’re already in your late 30s? No problem as well! All you need to do is to become bloody fuckin’ rich and famous but goes to the pub all the time. Then, you can marry all the women that are hitting out at you then you’ll have a real harem!!!

But honestly, that’s no fun. They’re too clingy.


Anyway, why am I writing about this? Because I’m going to review everybody’s favourite harem anime (God forbid anyone from calling this a romantic anime), Nisekoi! Keep your pants up everyone!!! Don’t let it fall just yet!!!

Feel free to comment on my post and let me know what you think or let me know what anime you would like reviewed. If you liked this post, please support by visiting my site at seeanimeondaniel.wordpress.com

And go get ’em, future harem lord! Be like Ash, go like “Gotta catch ’em all, Pokemon!!”

References: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun (not a harem anime), Accel world (Not quite a harem anime), The world only God knows (A true harem anime), Madan no Ou to Vanadis (A true harem anime with shiny and sparkling tits, pardon my French), Nisekoi (If this ain’t a harem, I don’t know what this is. On second thought, I wouldn’t wanna know what this is!!!), Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou (a harem anime involving only boys, just joking), Seitokai Yakuindomo (a harem anime involving girls who are psycho, sex addicts and have a fondness for sex toys) and Pokemon (a harem anime involving Pokemon).

Battle!! The fight for the throne of comedy anime!! Round three!

Fancy crazy girls? Fancy crude jokes about masturbation and porn? Then go to an all girls school! Well, at least, that’s what’s this anime’s premise and although I expected that the jokes would be kind of repititive, however suprisingly it wasn’t. In fact it managed to hold itself together and even managed to make me laugh. Unlike some comedy anime that were supposed to be funny, turned out to be plain erotic and edgy. However, in this Seitokai Yakuindomo’s case, it is the complete opposite. It’s supposed to plain erotic, but it turned out to be just plain funny. Plain, is it? Like how the ****** is plain white…No…It’s actually milky white…

(Retort: What the hell are you talking about??!!! This is an anime review!!!!)

Anyway, never eat while watching this anime ’cause you don’t know when the anime will throw a totally crude but hysterical joke that’ll leave you rolling on the floor. I don’t know about you but I had actually choke once watching this anime. Honestly, this anime really is unpredictable. At first, it can be all sweet and innocent, the very next second, you’d choke on your very own saliva, after an unexpected joke about porn or masturbation. And no, the guy is very innocent in this anime, THE GIRLS ARE THE PROBLEM!! And no, there is no stereotypical harem scene where the female characters push their boobs into the male protagonist’s face so don’t worry. Although there was a scene where a female character drops her face onto the male protagonist’s crotch but that was on purpose. Really.

Osai Academy is formerly a all-girls school but due to the declining birth rates in Japan, is converted into a co-ed school. The main character, Takatoshi Tsuda enters into Osai Academy where the boys-to-girls ratio was extreme (28:524), citing reasons like “it’s near to my house”. (Really, Tsuda? Well, I don’t fucking believe you!) Anyway, on the first day of school, he was forcibly recruited into the student council by the (female) president, citing reasons like “I need a male’s perspective of stuff since Osai Academy turned into a co-ed school” and he became the vice president of the student council. Normally, harem haters alike will have their sirens ringing already, however, don’t worry…

THIS AIN’T A NORMAL HAREM ANIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No harem, no edgy poses (sort of) and definitely no romantic relationships going on. Don’t worry. This anime’s female characters are not loose women! They don’t even loosen their bow ties when it gets unbearably hot though they do loosen the clothing that you can’t see on the outside, like underwear…

Anyway, the reason to why I put Seitokai Yakuindomo after Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun and Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou is simply because it has striking similarities with both GSNK and DKnN. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun has an abundance of interesting characters like the log, erm, I mean, Nozaki and Mami–koshiba. While Seitokai Yakuindomo does not lose out in terms of weird but fun characters. For example, there’s the perfectly perfect student council president who is great in all aspects like academics, sports even housework, and also (Wait for it) a history buff (refer to picture below).seitokai yakuindomo 1

Wait! There’s more. Like her mindset is still in puberty. And a pervert. Coming from me, it must be pretty hard. (refer to picture below)

That's not what I would reply. More than that, what on earth are you doing down there????!!!!!

The side characters are also quite interesting. It seems like all the girls in the school are aloof. Take the student council administrative teacher, Naruko Yokoshima for example. You would actually think that a teacher would actually be more self-behaved but…well, how do you put it? Well, I’d say she’s a form of tribute to GTO, maybe like a female version of Onizuka…But…well…Well, being a female version of Onizuka says quite a lot.

There’s also the stalker character…I mean, photographer character, Ranko Hata who wouldn’t hesitate to take a risk to be the first on the trail of hot news, albeit the “hot” news being a little…well…I’d say it’ll appeal more for boys rather than girls. But after watching the anime, I’m starting to feel that girls can be pretty perverse at times…

What's the scoop being in a females' bath???? I wanna read it!!

Despite having an abundance of interesting (and crazy) characters, it didn’t quite succeed (I wouldn’t call it fail…) in polishing the chemistry in between the characters. In fact, the chemistry is mostly between Tsuda and the girls. The girls rarely interact with each other and even if they do, it isn’t as interesting.

On the other hand, Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou and Seitokai Yakuindomo is similar in terms of format and premise. They both have don’t have a particular plot to follow so they are kind of free to jump all over the place as freely as they like. The setting of the time are unconditional and they do mini jokes and mini arcs just about as freely. However, despite the striking similarities, Seitokai Yakuindomo just wasn’t as good as Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou. The jokes were a little too fast and the viewers were not given quite as much time to digest the jokes, unlike DKnN.

Speaking of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou, I’d say Seitokai Yakuindomo is sort of an antithesis of Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou since DKnN was set in an all-boys school while SYD was set in a former all-girls school. So, you’d think the two are alike but you’re wrong! If you’d ask me, I’d say the two are completely different, like how boys and girls are different. They give off a totally weird vibe all together.

Anyhow, Seitokai Yakuindomo is quite an interesting anime. Honestly, it’s a good anime, but great? Well, I wouldn’t go so far to call it that…but if you insist…

I’ll strip off my underwear!!!

(Retort: Strip?!!!!)

Hmhm, don’t worry. I won’t take my clothes off…

(Retort: Huh?)

I’ll just take off my underwear under the skirt!

(Retort: ENOUGH WITH THE UNDERWEAR JOKES!!!!)
