I’ve been looking at the Winter season line up ever since it came out and I literally did not see anything that would please me. I mean, it never happened before, I would always find at least one title to get my attention. Not now, tho’.
So, because I didn’t want to leave things like this I just picked up some random series as they aired. Because why not? I was bored anyway. Did not read the plot or nasty stuff like that. I just, meh’d and watched them. And that was not such a bad idea.
1. Dagashi Kashi
Slice of life, comedy stuff? Colour me interested. Crazy chick wants to convince a guy to take over his family business and run his ancestors’ candy shop? I don’t see anything too bright in that, but it did decent in the comedy sector so I guess I’m just gonna keep watching it. It’s like 20 minutes a week. But man, WHAT’S WRONG WITH THEIR EYES? THEIR EYES MY EYES WHAT.
I was honestly expecting some Shimoneta stuff in the first 5 minutes, idk why. But I’m glad it didn’t turn out like that. Really.
2. Boku dake ga Inai Machi aka ERASED
Uuu, this one seems promising and I pray to all the gods in the world that it doesn’t fuck up. Looks like a mystery show and I recently realized I’m a sucker for these, no matter how bad they are. Well, let’s not exaggerate here, but still. I’m really intrigued by the plot and, I have to admit, that was one of the best first episodes I’ve seen in quite a while. So, this is definitely a keeper. Glad I picked it up.
3. Oshiete! Gyaruko-chan
Getting to the short episode ones. And I’m still trying to figure out what this is about. Nothing, I guess. I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be just a gag short, because it’s really not suited for anything else. Once again mentioning Shimoneta, if you liked the jokes in there, you would probably get a few laughs from this one too. However, the art style is kinda tacky and you can clearly see the low budget in there, but hey, pretty colours. Probably gonna keep watching it because it’s 7 minutes long. It’s shorter than smoking a cigarette, so I don’t feel like I’m wasting my time THAT much.
4. Sekkou Boys
Oh, look. Another short and…what the fuck did I watch? A crazy chick who’s going to manage a band of idol statues? I’m seriously questioning the existence of the universe right now. I’ve never watched a series focused on idols, let alone one about classic European statues of Roman/Greek gods. (I clearly did not do my homework with this one). I’ll just try to see how the comedy in this one goes, but I’m kinda worried about some people’s mental health. Original concept, tho’, gotta admit. I wanna watch one of their concert. Those dance moves, babe. I’m all about those dance moves.
And I just stopped after this because my mind was full of fuck. As usual, I will go along with the flock and maybe pick up the raved series, although I’m not sure if there is going to be such thing this season. I really really enjoyed Erased, so I’m glad I found something to actually like. I don’t mind having more time to discover older series. ^^
Anyway, if you have some recommendations for me, something that you enjoyed or something that hypes you this season, let me know. I wanna watch stuff. :3
