2011 Fall Anime Second Thoughts

Phew! Here it is, finally, completely complete and edited and everything! Except for the images, which haven’t been modified in any way except for some resizing. So here it is, over seven thousand and five hundred words later, my twenty-eleven fall, anime, SECOND THOUGHTS! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH *party music*

Please, don’t read this all at once. Symptoms of reading this all at once include boredom, ennui, disinterest, fatigue, indifference, apathy, lethargy, dullness, monotony, tiresomeness, and death.

Well, well, well. Turns out I couldn’t finish this in time. I’ll write the Chihayafuru, Fate/Zero, and concluding segments tomorrow.

Don’t bother reading through this mess. At the moment, it’s over 6000 words long, and, well, completely unedited – that’s right, even I haven’t read through this mess of a post. So don’t bother, and I’m not even trying to use reverse psychology on you. I’ll finish editing this tomorrow. Then, I’ll start to spam it on every single blob in the history of ever and wait did I just say blob

well here’s a blob

But at least I made a not-very-pun-thing in the title of this post! Get it? I had First Impressions, and now I have Second Thoughts! Still debating what to call the third post in this series (the Third Coming?), cause fuck if I’m going to write 11 Half Season Reviews after being 2 months late on every single show.

Except for Horizon…»

2011 Fall Anime First Impressions

This is what I expected when I came into the season.


Mirai Nikki [Completed]

[Announcement: New tag, Oneshots. Original Video Animation doesn’t really tell you anything cause really, other than length and some other things, for us oversees Canadians, we can’t overwatch overheard television shows anyways, so it being an OVerAnimation doesn’t change anything. Oneshots are for oneshots. However, my Completed Animanga List will still follow whatever MAL decides to do with its shows :V]


Pew pew pew machine gun

Amano Yukiteru has a diary on his cellphone, and he records everything that happens in his pitiful life in there.

He’s also extremely proficient at darts, managing to hit the bullseye from three centimetres away.

One day, this giant weird blocky digimon like creature, Deus Ex, tells him that he has a Future Diary, and his diary starts writing (on its own) events that will happen in his future, up to 90 days in the future.

However, if he loses his cellphone, he loses his future – and thus, not only will people not hire him for jobs, but he’ll also die as a side-effect. Oh woe to our unemployment rates.

What’s the point of having both a microphone and a loudspeaker?

Someone decides to take the students in the school has hostages, cause she wants to kill Yukiteru, as it is revealed that it is all Deus Ex’s game, and whoever diary holder is the last one standing will become God or something.

Gasai Yuno also makes her appearance as a main character in this anime, and another possessor of a Future Diary, that reveals everything about Yukiteru’s life. Probably the foremost archetype of the yandere form, this makes it must-watch just because she’s here.

However, the whole OVA is nine minutes long – including a three minute long credit roll, with artists in 3D design participating in the 6-minute long project, that was actually delayed from September to now (it was just released, so I’m typing this on the day of release :D ). It’s like the Kaminomi OVA, completely useless if not to attract attention.

But wait!

The Kaminomi OVA was released /to/ attract attention to its airing schedules in Fall. Which means Mirai Nikki in Winter…?

In reality, (s)he’s actually a reverse-trap

That’s good news, but TBH this sucked.
