Also, fantastic soundtrack, one of the best of the season.
This is as good a reason as any to watch a series.
I'll have to throw it on the ol' queue.
It took me til the beginning of March, but I now have more than one winter season series that I'm watching weekly that I actually enjoy. Began the season watching Rakugo and Blue Exorcist 2, but I had to drop the latter like a bad habit. Didn't really know what was going on, and I didn't really care. Maybe I'll pick it up and binge watch it in 15 years when I run out of good anime to watch.
To my fellow Evageeks; anyone else get Evangelion
vibes from the Rakugo 2
OP?? And not just because it's sung by Rei Ayanami, haha. Still show of the season, probably year.
Not that March Comes in Like a Lion
has been that bad of a show either. I watched the first eighteen episodes over a week or so, and it really got a hold of me; it really bums me out that I can only watch an episode of it a week now. The soundtrack is just awesome, and the cast is up there(to me at least) with a few of my other fav series, NGE
, Ping Pong
. It just seems that 22 episodes can't do this series justice. Episode 20 began with a dream sequence of one of it's tragic characters that was one of the finest scenes I've had the pleasure of watching in an anime.
When the spring season rolls around I'm going to be pretty sad that I can't watch any new eps. of these series. But I've got Sakura Quest
, SnK 2
and Eccentric Family 2
to watch, so I won't be that
I've also got caught up with Gundam: IBO
, which I've also really been enjoying. Mika's character design seems more enjoyable to me this season(am I crazy??) and the Mobile Armor story arc was pretty interesting. I sort of miss Kudelia, but after 45 episodes I've really come to dig all of the guys in Tekkadan and their whole kitschy looking out for one another schtick. And it's always interesting when we get an anime where people start dropping off left and right! Reminds me of ol Akame Ga Kill, haha.
I'm also rewatching Ergo Proxy
for the first time. I love the series, but this one may be the most confusing anime out there(or am I just an idiot?). I figured on the second go I'd get it a bit more, but no dice. Nonetheless, it's still a treat.
