2012 Winter Anime First Impressions Part Two
Are you ready for a pun? Yes, you are.
See that sunset? Yes, you do.
When does the sun set? In the evening.
What time is the evening? Very late.
So. What’s this enormously late post going to be about?
The title says it’s going to be about ‘2012 Winter Anime First Impressions Part Two’. OK, so what does that mean? It means that this post is going to be about my first impressions of the anime airing in the winter of 2012. And this is part two.
Whereas part one’s shows all sucked, part two’s shows… well, half of them suck. The other half are decent. And then there’s one awesome show. But it’d be too disjointed if I just hopped around from one anime to another in this post, without any main thread in between. So this post is going to be about anime, and first impressions, and 2012 Winter. But it’s also going to be about Anime Club. That’s right, Anime Club.
So now you know what this post is going to be about.
2012 Winter Anime Part Three
So, what did I learn from writing season previews?
Rule 1 of writing season previews: Don’t write season previews after everybody else does.
Rule 2 of writing season previews: Do not write season previews after the previous season has already ended.
Rule 3 of writing season previews: DO NOT write season previews after the season’s shows have already started.
Rule 4 of writing season previews: DO NOT WRITE SEASON PREVIEWS after all the season’s shows have already started.
Rule 5 of writing season previews: DO NOT WRITE SEASON PREVIEWS AFTER THE SEASON IS OVER!
Rule 6 of writing season previews: Do not talk about writing season previews»
Obligatory New Years Update
Alright, I’m still on vacation (if I were back home, I’d edit off this sentence, so you know that I’m still on vacation), but that doesn’t stop me from creating obligatory picture-less dull posts celebrating an arbitrary date that signifies it’s been a year since the last time this date came by, which was, surprisingly, exactly a year ago!
Read that post instead, it’s
longer more colourful!
Anyways, because this is an obligatory update, I guess I’ll have to update you guys on how the date has been ‘upped’ from 2011 to 2012! HAHAHAHAHA THAT WAS A JOKE
But seriously, updates:
1. Horizon post not going to come out until I come back from vacation, obviously, as the episode wasn’t released when I went away.
2. NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION: to go to Anime Club more. Seriously, going to Anime Club is like smoking anti-weed – you know it’s good for you, but you just don’t want to go. Wait, it’s good for me…?
3. …I can’t think of anything else.
4. Apocalypse coming in twelve months and twenty-something-odd days! Hurrah!
5. Fall 2011 Mid-season review still not up because I’m still on episode 4 of every show this season…
6. Logically, you wouldn’t expect the Winter 2012 preview to be up either… which is why it’s not up. UNLIKE THE YEAR WHICH IS UP HAHAHAHAHAHA
7. Happy New Years, everybody~!
Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! 12 [Completed]
Perhaps ‘Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!’ is too lengthy a designation for a show of such length. Perhaps, it is ‘tl;dw’ – ‘terribly lengthy; [a] disaster [to] write’, or ‘tiredly laborious; describe [it to me without] words’? Thankfully, I, the great master of simplicity, shortening, and pastries, have just the innovative solution you need to cure yourself from ‘the laziness [of] death wishes’!
Is ‘Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!’ a disaster to write? Write no more, for we shall relieve you of your upper limbs in some time [if] at all! In the rare occurrence that our timely services are insufficient, we have exercised our great mental capabilities to manufacture a shorter, more efficient, and unique acronym for ‘Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!’ Instead of numerous other ineffectual abbreviations such as ‘Majikoi’, ‘Denisai’, or ‘Mawakoshi’, simply write ‘cqX7’ in place of ‘Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!’ Instead of typing all thirty-two characters, you need only express four.
Was that not what you were looking for? Were you hoping I to describe cqX7 without words, for watching cqX7 was tiredly laborious? You must be a senile old fool to tire from such a terse expedition. Nevertheless, O-New values every single or married senile old fool that visits our senile, old, foolish site. Worry not, senile old fools! Behold! A picture suffices for more than nine hundred and eighty-two words:
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 8
For a REFRESHING change in POSTING STYLE, I shall separate this post into THREE HALVES – that is to say, this post will be ONE AND A HALF times longer than it usually is, as there are THREE HALVES in this post. Ha. Ha. Half.
Half 1: Have a Hassle
I just personally insulted an Onew (the singer-guy who is stealing every single search result for ‘O-New’) fan prawpr with speiling cannadan gramer and. I’m not actually sure how I did it, but I /think/ it went something like this:
[Onew fan follows me. She has two hundred tweets, fifty followers, and is following one thousand people.]
Onew fan: “Hello. I am a half-Japanese female who has recently immigrated to Britain, and am also a SHINee [Onew’s band name] fan. Would you please follow me back? I would appreciate the extra attention.”
Me: “are u a onew fan to”
Onew fan: “Yes, I am. I particularly enjoy his music. Are you also a fan of Korean pop music?”
Me: “no i hate all onew fans”
Onew fan: “Well, simply because you hate all Onew fans does not mean that you must be mean to all of them. You cannot say such vile words.”
Me: “im ‘murican kay i’ve fredom of speech. also i sugest u talk in propre english, if u keep talking like that ur english will becum relleh bad. juts for praktise you no cause u just come to britan rite”
Onew fan: “Do not tell me what I can or I cannot say! You are not my mother.”
Me: “well y r u folowing me anyway”
[Onew fan blocks me.]
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon 5
Look at how sad it is…
Then again, if you got stabbed in the head with a spear, you’d also be pretty sad.
