All Good Things Must Come to an End

That is to say, my semestral break.

It’s been fun, even if it hasn’t been meaningful in the slightest. I played a bit of Ar Tonelico, finished Fallout 3 and (will finish) Red Alert 3, and hell, I even started writing a bit of my own novel. And of course, anime. So I get to the actual point of the post. Now.

And now I come to an impasse – which shows to drop, which shows to continue. “Why not just keep watching them all?” one may say. Unfortunately, there are two particular circumstances that force me to drop stuff: One, school’s starting tomorrow and I need to cut down on stuff, and Two, I don’t want to waste my time watching shit*.

*shit, in this case, refers to “stuff I would prefer other things over.”

And so, the list, and a succinct sentence or two detailing its shittiness*:

*shittiness, in this case, refers to “reason(s) why I do not want to watch the show.”

Quartet
Mediocrity at its finest. Unfortunately, shitty raws dissuade me from further watching this.

Hyakko
Of the two episodes subbed I’ve actually seen (haven’t watched ep03), the humor isn’t really all that funny anymore, even by just the second episode. Animation kinda somehow turns me off too.

Casshern SINS
Too much emo, gives off an aura of pretentiousness, all they talk about is eating Casshern, or dying. I’m sick of it all.

Kurogane no Linebarrel
I thought this show had some promise, but I guess I was just expecting too much (something better than the level of “gut-wrenching shit”) but the barren wasteland of an animation studio we can hide under the name GONZO is, well… GONZO. You know.

This list will be followed of course, by a list of the stuff I will watch, and the stuff that’s on hold. Lengthier explanations for the former.

Fall 2008 Impressions

So it’s been about 2, 3 weeks since the fall season’s officially started. A lot of people have claimed this to be a season filled with awesomeness, me included, and many of the shows do not disappoint, and another few have surpassed what low expectations I had of them. In this post, because I’m really bad with the follow-through, I’ll just do a one-shot impressions post covering CHAOS;HeAD, Toaru Majutsu no Index, ToraDora, CLANNAD ~after story~, Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka, and pretty much almost all of the bigger shows of the season. Actual impressions after the jump.
