What are you watching? (2015)

Recommended Posts

Since the old "What are you watching" thread seems to have disappeared, I'll start a new one...

 

 

My planned Spring slate:

Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid

Nisekoi:

Re-Kan!

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken [i Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying] 2

Punch Line!

and continuing Sailor Moon Crystal.

Some of those shows I listed are 'try an episode to see how I feel before committing' types (Re-Kan! and Punch Line!). The others are ones I know for sure I wil stick with all the way...it's gonna be a busy Spring for me, following (at least) 4-6 series (though Danna ga...'s episodes are only 3 minutes long, so it's easy to find time to watch that)...

Funny, I'm watching a few of the same ones. As for me, Naruto as always, Highschool DxD Born, Danna ga Nani wo Itteiro ka Wakaranai Ken, and Nagato Yuki-chan no shoushitsu. Pretty excited for them.

So far I'm watching/plan to watch:

 

Kuroko's Basketball 3

I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying 2

Comical Psychosomatic Medicine

Re-Kan!

Fate/Stay Night: UBW

Gunslinger Stratos

Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon?

Food Wars!

Plastic Memories

Mysterious Girlfriend X

 

I just finished up a few shows on CR from last season (I usually watch about 10-15 shows on there a season, but this last season I only watched 4) and I might add more to this list depending on what they add. I also have a lot of shows that I bought and a lot on my Funimation queue that I'll get around to at some point (I tell myself that every season, lol).

The faerie's viewing list this quarter include:

 

Sailor Moon Crystal (SMC)

Show By Rock!! (SBR)

The Heroic Legend of Arslan (ARS)

Ninja Slayer (NJS)

Wish Upon a Pleiades (PLE)

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-Chan (DYC)

 

Show By Rock!! is scheduled for 12 eps, no sure about the others.  I may pick up Plastic Memories (PMR) later on though.  Speaking of SBR, the first ep was adorable, but it's something that's catching a lot of viewers off guard.  Sad that some fans will write off a show with CG elements even today...

Shokugeki no Souma

Is it just me, or is Shougeki the product of someone misunderstanding the term "food porn"? :P

In the manga they explain that "shokugeki" is the term they use for the cooking battles in the school. The way it was explained, it sounds like shokugeki is not a normal word in Japanese.

I'm not referring to the word itself, using shougeki as an abbreviation of the show's title. Referring to the concept of the show itself

Ah.  Well the series DOES seem to have a lot of men and women spontaneously disrobing and climaxing when they taste something good.  If that were only true! All guys would have to do to get women to take their clothes off is serve them a tasty dinner! (a wistful look crosses my eyes) "If it were only true!" happy.png

 

I guess I see your point. laugh.png

Finished one show and dropped a couple, but did pick up Gintama (just now starting it, lol) and saw where Funi picked up The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, so I can watch it now.

Add Ore Monogatari to my list. that was a pleasant surprise of a show.

 

I've been reading the manga today. It has a surprisingly good story. The mangaka is apparently a woman so that might explain how the premise - while initially seeming weak - is turning out so good. "A different point of view" and all.

I've been introducing my roommate to Kill la Kill via the english dub on Toonami. I've also been meaning to start Ano Natsu de Matteru since I'm a big fan of Porter Robinson and that series apparently had a big impact on Worlds.

Currently watching Turn A Gundam. I got the DVD release from Right Stuf in early and I'm loving it. My first time seeing this series and very happy to finally get a physical release for it in North America. If you are interested in knowing what the DVD looks like, I did an unboxing video. Here it is.

Check out this release if you are into Gundam or into mecha. It's an awesome series.

"Danjon ni deai o motomeru no wa machigatteiru darouka."

(ダンジョンに出会いを求めるのは間違っているだろうか。)

 

This has morphed into my favorite series this season.

 

Spoiler (Highlight hidden text to the right): I must have replayed the battle where Bell-kun defeated the minotaur at least 10 times a week or so ago. ...And now he has the Argonaut skill? I'd want this guy in my party ALL the time! /Spoiler

Ah!  "Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches" has an anime?  I enjoyed the manga so I'll be following this one as well.

I'm enjoying it. 

 

One thing that stuck out in that show: the premise has the tough-kid main character able to activate his power by kissing someone.  In the process of testing things out, and later advancing the plot, there are some kisses between members of the same sex. I thought they did a pretty good job of keeping the kisses awkward without having all the characters react with horror or fear, as used to be the norm.

 

But that's an interesting trend -- having watched Free! and Cute High Earth Defense Club Love recently, it struck me that attitudes have evolved quite a bit on that front.

Just finished Death Note(sub). Sailor Moon Crystal will probably be showing the ending episode this weekend. Although, I am speculating they will stop at 24 on Hulu.

Watching one series right now.

 

Detective Conan/Case Closed

 

However, I am watching every episode starting at number 1 and trying to get caught up. We (my sister and I) started on Memorial Day Weekend and right now we are up to Episode 174. We are watching at least a few every night but some days we have gone though 20 episodes. Depends on our moods. It is also a good time to get caught up since the manga is on hold too with re-runs of episodes happening often enough.

A couple of shows that I didn't think I'd really get into, but have absolutely fell in love with are Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon? and Plastic Memories (gonna be a lot of feels on the last episode of the latter show). And a couple that have kind of disappointed me are Food Wars and Fate/Stay Night: UBW. I love the Food wars manga, but I'm just not getting into the show like I thought I would and FSN has been up and down for me. The one show that's been consistent is Kuroko's Basketball. I knew I'd love it and I still do 70+ episodes in.

Ain't that the truth. Dungeon was, by its title, something I would normally pass over. But I like the old-school RPGs, so it warranted a view from me, and it's been quite entertaining to watch! Plastic Memories... well... I know it's not going to end well, but there's this sliver of hope in the back of my mind, which the series sets up quite well. This is also what keeps me watching, despite how it loves to try to wreck my psyche.

 

And I'm watching way too many other things also-

-Uta no Prince-sama season 3

-Baby Steps

-Food Wars

-Comical Psychosomatic Medicine

-I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying

And more that I'm sure are also escaping me. I just let Crunchyroll keep updating the series I'm watching...

I'm going to watch GATE! because I read the manga, though the first episode confirmed my suspicion that it will be watered-down for public viewing. In the manga, the first chapter opened with Tokyo citizens getting bit in half by wyverns, and in the anime they always cut away before any such graphic scenes. Additionally, later in the manga there are captives stripped naked, raped, then beheaded and their heads tossed back at the defenders. I can't imagine that will make it to the anime either. "Thus, The JSDF Manga Was Censored Here".

 

Story summary: A civilization in a magical dimension, but only technologically equivalent to Imperial Rome somehow creates a trans-dimensional gate into Tokyo's Ginza district and invades. After rebuffing the invasion, Japan sends the JSDF through the gate to secure the other end. Start of story.
