Weekly Watch!! Winter Anime 2019 – #2
We are now on the 2nd week, and I think I am enjoying this weekly watching. I had dropped some animes last week, and I think I will drop more if some of the animes continues to be a disappointment.
This is going to be interesting.
Anyway, let’s start.
3D Kanojo Real Girl
The episode was cute. Alot of developments on all the ships in the anime. Most of their it felt natural and real. I didn’t expect Ito would crossdress, of course he is going to be a “hottie”. The beauty contest was meh. I was expecting it to be more challenging or visually appealing, but it wasn’t. I do like Igarashi’s speech, it was nice and unique. Seeing the main character so proud of his gf, it was so cute.
I think I’ll continue watching this weekly.
Bang Dream S2
This was a nice episode. It started sad as the band, Popipa, was told off by the Roselia’s frontman the harsh truth in sponsoring a show. This made the Popipa members think about the reality of everything, and be able to move forward and make it as a goal of the group, no matter how hard it was. We also got to know more of the new character even though I didn’t ask for it. Lol.
It seemed Roselia got scouted by a producer, though the said one looked really shady. She was pushy on producing Roselia to stardom, and of course, the group decline. Her presence definitely would spark some tension in the later episodes.
Doukyonin wa Hiza, Tokidoki, Atama no Ue
In this cat anime, we got see the typical doing of a cat, which happens to be them sleeping on the laptop. I can’t really say for sure that all cats do this, but most of the cats I know does this so yeah. I find this quite cute, but also a hassle to the owner of the cat. The naming part of the episode was nice. In some ways, naming your pet is indeed important as they became part of your family.
I wasn’t able to comment much on the cat POV thing from last episode cuz I didn’t mind it much. But in this episode, I find that POV quite intriguing. The POV of the cat definitely changed the original narrative of that episode. Knowing its thought made the series more entertaining.
Anyway, I guess I will continue watching this one.
Go-toubun no Hanayome
Ooohohohoh Miki shined in this episode. We got to know her a bit more, with her liking warlords and have vast knowledge in Japanese History. We also know how each sister seemed to be good at one subject, which made the series alot more interesting. I am looking forward to how Futarou applies this information and teach the quintuplets.
Meiji Tokyo Renka
I really liked this episode. We got to know more about the main girl, personality-wise. We also got to see her interact more to the first 2 guys in her harem. At first, I find the painter guy boring, but it seems there is more onto him that I realize. The docto’s hair is also warming up to me.
I am quite happy we got to know more about the main girls’s situation. It seems she’ll be staying in the Meiji era for a month, and for the mean time, she’ll use her “talent” to solve some interesting problems. This is going to be interesting. Can’t wait for the next episode.
Girly Air Force
Huh. Interesting, but a bit cliche.
I had seen quite alot of animes like this, but I still hope this anime would be better. Rather than showing more about the girl and plane, this new episode focus more on developing the main guy and girl’s relationship. I appreciate that they gave us some insight to to their personalities but I wished they would dive more on the main plot and the problems surrounding the girl.
Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari
Now, this is a better episode compared to the 1st one. We got to see the continuation of the first episode cliffhanger, Naofumi buying a slave. He was quite harsh to her, Raphtalia, but he shown care to her afterwards. Raphtalia had a tragic past and with his guidance, she starts to change for the better. I can’t wait to see more of this anime.
Yakusoku no Neverland
Damn. DAMN. This is getting really interesting. I was kinda curious as to how the story would flow since the first episode, and so far, it had been really great. The intensity and horror of the setting is felt in every corner of the episode, I love it. Though, I do want to point out that there’s too many clues all over the episode that it sometimes spoils the impact of the upcoming horror. Still, everything is still great and I can’t wait for the next episode.
PS: I didn’t expect one of the main guys, Norman, to confess. Whether he likes Emma romantically or on a different light, his feelings definitely added more depth to his actions.
Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!
Okay. I’m on the border with this. I really do wanna like this but the borderline pedo nature of the main character is pushing me to not like this one. Compared to the Uzamaid, its jokes didn’t hit me and I’m disappointed with it. Though, yeah, I am happy that “mom” appeared for a split osecond, still, it would be nice if this series was a bit funnier.
I also do want to point out that it seemed having a side character who wants to be the cutest in the room is a staple trope in this borderline pedo animes. I don’t know if I like it or not, but at least this character in this anime was less annoying than the one in Uzamaid. I’ll need to see another episode of this anime to determine if I should continue with it or not.
Grimms Notes The Animation
Sigh, this was disappointing.
It’s negative points are clearer than ever. There were alot of dumping of info about the characters and the world they currently in, and its not sitting well with me. It’s roots as a game adaptation is also showing which is the main negative point of the series. The character seemed dumber that they should be and its disappointing. I do like that they featured Don Quixote’s tale, but its other factors is affecting my viewing. Especially, now that they “introduced” the antagonist in the most boring way. I might not continue watching this. I don’t think its worth it anymore.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai (2019)
Oh boii, that was a strong episode. It actually made me go speechless, in a good way. I mean, the first 3 episode were great as an arc, but I do admit the first episode was really weak. Especially as an intro to the Boogiepop world. Now, damn. This arc is going to be LIT. We have a new antagonist and a new problem to get on to. What’s really good about it too is the fact that my fav VA is voicing the current antagonist. YAS. Anyway, this episode was really good. It was a good introduction to the new arc. We also got to see new characters, and know bit by bit what’s the looming problem in this current arc, at the same time, not spoiling much. It made me excited to watch the next episode and I can’t wait for it. DAMN.
Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai
UUgggghhhh I so love this anime. It had been adapted well. Even though its been few years since I read these panels in the manga, this anime reminded me how fun these mini-story arcs of the series. The narrator never fails to amaze me with its convincing voice and the VA’s of the main characters performed well. The confession arc is one of my favorite and the adaptation didn’t disappoint. So happy.
Though, I do find the intro part annoying, cuz its on repeat. I hope they won’t do this on every episode. Well, that is just me.
Oh boii. I really don’t know what to say. Well, it adapted the manga well, and I’m still not a fan. I thought I might “re-like” this series but nah, I know my best girl would not win.
Btw, I might not watch this more weekly as I have no mood for it. I don’t want to spoil my enjoyment every week too.
Okay, it seemed I had seen the episode a bit early. With it now officially broadcast, I did see some changes. There was an additional footage after the credits, which is not really that important but it might be in the future. The changes were minor and it didn’t affect much my impression of the series.
I will still continue to watch this series as it got my attention.
Oooohohohoh, that is all for now.
You guys might have noticed I didn’t post my thoughts about some animes, well, that’s because I haven’t got a chance to watch them. Still, I’ll find time to watch them as long as I want to.
Anyway, that’s it for now.
See you next week.
