Check-out Station: Farewell Fall 2010 season! (I stayed a bit too long.)

January 24, 2011 5 comments

Fall 2010 of the anime season was the first (and probably only) season of material I tried to follow almost completely as it aired.  Some may call it ambitious, I call it a f*cking chore (sorry, I watched Zero Punctuation before writing this so I may be a little “snarky” i.e. a bitch!).  But regardless I had a lot of fun, watched plenty of quality anime, and some horrid ones as well.  And normally I do goodbye post for every series I complete.  And normally I’d have time to do that.  But, and let me count, ….. ELEVEN anime means nearly eleven posts (obviously several are still ongoing) and I just don’t have the time.  Not to mention the then ongoing series that completed at or near the end of the season.  So I decided to roll everything up into one fat, American mega post and give a mini-Check-out for each and every one of these series.  Here we go!

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week: December 5th (Big and Black; Long and Hard)

December 5, 2010 1 comment

And by that title I mean it has been a long and hard week of watching anime.  Lots of crying (from the characters in shows, not me), and panting, and beating, and farewells.  Everything I watched and read seemed to be really intense and trying its best, with very few failures.  The only real failure of mine was not watching OreImo.   I just couldn’t do it.  As much as I enjoy the supporting (and in this case I mean that quite literally) characters, Kirino sucks most any enthusiasm I have for the show right out of me.  I just can’t seem to bring myself to sit down and deal with her.  With that out of the way, time to move to the week in Japanese illustrated NERD.

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week: November 29th (There’s no limit on Pervy)

Last week of November and everything this FALL season seems to be in fine form.  We pretty much know what shows are about and what shows we like; and what characters we gravitate towards and which one manage to churn the bile in our stomachs (Kirino I’m looking at you).  And for now, I couldn’t be happier with what I’m getting.  Despite my following way too many series at once, I still managed to get some manga reading done too.  So let’s see what made the cut.

DonKangolJones’ Images of the Week

Another successful week of absorbing the drippings on Japan’s animated culture, another week of joy.  And I think one thing is truly clear.  Panty and Stocking rule the day (I mean week)! Read more…

Check-in Station: Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt eps 1-5 (the complete opposite of a starter anime)

Yes, it's a boogie...  I think.

I had high hopes for this little action comedy series from the moment I saw the art.  It’s a feeling I rarely get from anything.  The only doubts I had were whether this series could live up to its pedigree.   With certain studios, you get a level of expectation that comes only from familiarity and a strong appreciation of the company’s most successful and popular works.   KyoAni will always have Air, Kanon, Clannad and Haruhi to hang their hats on.   BONES has a stellar pedigree when it comes to mecha and a reputation for quality animation and story telling.  Madhouse has a reputation for having arguably the best animation in the business and a long list of classics. Any series that comes out under the flag of those studios will be categorized, stereotyped, prejudiced and judged in some form through the prism of those series that came before. Read more…
