Comments on current anime

As of the moment, I’m watching only a few shows at a time. Baccano!, myself; yourself, CLANNAD, and a number of others. So far, here are my thoughts on how a few are going so far:

Baccano! (completed)
The pacing is a little bit of a problem, yet it’s also one of the show’s stronger points as well. It keeps one drawn to the screen, yet because the viewer is expected to remember all the things that’ve happened, it can be hard at times to keep pace with the story and its many, many events. I also found that a lot of the characters were rather one-sided, or at least seemed to be because they weren’t really given much backstory or depth. All in all though, as I may have mentioned months and months ago, Baccano! is meant to be a fun, enjoyable watch, which it most definitely is.

myself; yourself
It was rather good at the beginning, though it’s beginning to taper off into crapiness. If I remember correctly, the show was set to have 13 episodes, and as its stands, there are far too many subplots to cover in the remaining 4 episodes. We’ve got that insane old woman killing cats, the troubled household of the twins, and that arsonist uncle. At this rate, we could have an anime that has unfinished subplots, or one that’s totally rushed. Either way, we would probably end up with a bad taste in our mounths.

Shakugan no Shana II
Thankfully, we’ve moved from Shana Days, to… a backstory on Margery. Not that I’m complaining, of course, but we’ve already reached the 1/3rds mark, and I’ve yet to see the actual story move.

Is still awesome even if there’s far too much Fuuko and not enough Kyou, Nagisa, and Tomoyo.

    Stopped watching Shana 2 after the second ep where nothing happened. Dislike that kind of show.

    Clannad, well let´s just say best show of the season sofar. But then again, it might be because of “family ties”…

    Myself;Yourself: I enjoy the music of the OP, now I just hope that we´ll see some actual musicplaying on the show as well.
    To bad some parts are to obvious.

    Koji, shocking as it sounds, yes. It’s just playing hide-and-seek or something while we’re blindfolded.

    manga, indeed, CLANNAD is the best show of the season, but that probably comes from Key and KyoAni fanboying (for me, at least). myself; yourself has an awesome OP and ED, alright, but the stuff in between is severely lacking. I do hope it picks up soon, though maybe even then it’d be too late.
