[Fall 2009 Anime] Initial Impressions [part 2]

Inuyasha: The Final Act
Impressions: It seems like a fresh version of every season before it. This may just because it's been about 3 years since I last saw an episode of Inuyasha. The music is still amazing, and the characters don't seem as... over the top as before :) The episode was not as confusing as other reviewers have made it out to be, but for someone who has never seen an episode or has only seen a season or two probably would be confused.
Gonna Continue Watching: Yes

Sora no Otoshimono
Impressions: Say hello to the anime that is meant to fill that DearZ and Chobits void in your little otaku heart, 'cause this is it. Introducing ANGELROIDS 0__0
Gonna Continue Watching: as much as I want to say no, I'm still too interested to put this one to the side

Kimi ni Todoke
sorry.... it's actually Kimi ni Todoke xD
Impressions: I.Love.This.Anime. I'm a sucker for romance type anime, and this one is defiantly that. I was excited for this the minute I heard it got green-lit. My excitment was inflamed thanks to Shojo Beat releasing volume 1 of the manga soon before I found out about the anime.
Gonna Continue Watching: yesssssss yes yesss


[Fall 2009 Anime] Initial Impressions [part 1]

Fighting Librarians: The Book of Bantorra
Impressions: The first episode doesn't reveal much other than that humans are dived into different groups. Some are called Meats, and these aren't considered human. Others (the ones in the picture) are called Armed Librarians. Their job is to protect the books (when you die, your soul solidifies into a stone book) that represent the life story of people. There was a pretty cool action sequence, and some comedy thrown in as well. The opening music is by Ali Project, so that alone is WIN.
Gonna Continue Watching: YES O' COURSE

Impressions: For once a CLAMP anime does not look like every other one before it. Kobato takes the magical girl concept (kind of....) and makes it new. I loved the entire episode. I laughed, I cried and I even cringed! The best part was the song she sang (6min into the second part of the episode). It didn't look like some random lip flap like most characters who sing in anime get. :3
Gonna Continue Watching: HAI!

Miracle Train
Impressions: A train full of kawaii boys who want to help troubled ladies!? WEll.... I'm a sucker for the cute faces but the animation was just ok. And the anime is based on the train lines in Japan.... what was I suppose to expect?
Gonna Continue Watching: Maybe

Impressions: To begin a season with a hotsprings episode was really a turn off, but I loved the first season so I decided to finish the episode. It ended with the cute couple running off to some anime event... but how could they possible not get found out!? There was a random geisher created of course xD
Gonna Continue Watching: DUH. It's otaku anime

[Mini-reviews] 10/7/09 [Anime #2]

Episode(s) Watched: #22-25
Quick Star Rating: 4.9/5
Quick Opinion: T^T BWAAAAA! I promised I wouldn't cry, but I can't help it. This show was so beautiful (but annoying at the same time). I'm gonna miss hearing how much Teito misses his best buddy.

Plan to Continue Watching: If there is a second season ever made, I'm defiantly watching!

Episode(s) Watched: #1-6
Quick Star Rating: -HUH!?/5
Quick Opinion: I normally like ero-guro type anime (such as Chaos;HEAD and Kurozuka), but when yuri is added along with some guy who is a half girl... then my brain just wants to explode. I'm still shocked that I even watched the whole thing >.>
Plan to Continue Watching: Probably not. (that is, if there's another season or some lost episode)

Episode(s) Watched: it's a movie
Quick Star Rating: 5/5
Quick Opinion: I loved both Appleseed movies, so I was looking forward to watching this movie. My high hopes were rewarded with a very nice mech type anime movie that had humans turning into robots before my eyes (but not the metallic kind you may be thinking of. I'm talkin' about the kind in GITS). I came really close to crying at the end of this movie....
Plan to Continue Watching: a sequel would be neat

Dead Leaves
Dead Leaves
Episode(s) Watched: it's a movie
Quick Star Rating: 0__o/5
Quick Opinion: WHAT DID I JUST WATCH WITHOUT BLINKING!? I was so en groused in this disgusting display of animation that looked like FLCL. But at the end of the movie, I never wanted to see it again.... The baby did remind me of Renesme from the Twilight series, but the Dead Leaves child died in a matter of minuets. xD
Plan to Continue Watching: NEVER

Episode(s) Watched: seasons 1&2
Quick Star Rating: 3/5
Quick Opinion: Awwwww, they never got together T^T I read the manga before watching the anime. Most of the series followed the manga, but some stuff I was looking forward to was MISSING. *dun dun dunnnnnn*
Plan to Continue Watching: I doubt there's ever be more, but I have been wrong. YES

Kujubiki Unbalance

Quick Star Rating: 2/5
Quick Opinion: The only reason I decided to watch this because I finished Genshiken. BOY, I'm dumb. This series is so much like a lot of anime.... but the kujibiki lottery twist is pretty nice.
Plan to Continue Watching: either when I'm in the mood or am dead bored

There are some others that I watched at random (such as xxHolic) but I'm too lazy to quick review those.

The rest are Fall 2009 anime, and I've decided to do initial impression reviews for those in a different post :3
