Anime spring Season 2015

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 15, 2015, 2:14 PM
It's that time of the year again where I write which anime series I want to follow this season! : D

Right now the 2nd episodes of most series are already there or are appearing right now, so I already got a better idea of most of the series. As for what I'm watching right now...

Spring season:
- Owari no Seraph
- Kekkai Sensen
- Arslan Senki
- Danmato (Dungein ni Deai wo motomeru no wa machigatteiru darou ka?)
- Hibike! Euphonium
- Hokago no Pleiades 
- Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku
- Ore Monogatari!!
- Plastic Memories
- Punchline

Winter leftovers:
None! There aren't any series from last season that I was watching that also continued D: Therefore let's add another list, called...

Possible drops:
- Punchline
- Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku
- Hokago no Pleiades

I might drop Punchline because of the over the top fanservice in the form of 398492834 pantyshots, and the current lack of an interesting plot. It's a bit of a waste tho since the art and animation are really really good and interesting! And the Fruit something girl has an adoraaaaable design!! So either I get used to the pantyshots/they slow down on 'em and a nice plot appears, I'll probs drop it. As for Mikagura, I gave it a try after reading a review about it praising the main character. And I gotta admit that she's very likeable, and in the 2nd episode they also managed to explore the other characters some more and they surprised me with some nice animation scenes. But the plot feels kinda boring right now and I'm not sure if just the characters and the usually pretty low animation quality can make up for that. Besides, I'm watching a loooooot of shows and the others are simply more interesting for me to use my time for. Lastly, Hokago no Pleiades, I've seen the short anime it was based on and I liked it, but so far the anime is mehhh. The 3d animation feels very out of place and the characters don't seem interesting at all. I'm hoping for an interesting plot and some nice char development or else I'll probably drop it D:

Now, as for the series I'm following! There's many so I won't talk too much about all of them, I'll just highlight the ones that grabbed my interest the most. Starting with.. Owari no seraph! After the trailer I was SOLD! Dangg I love the artstyle, char designs, settings and pretty animation! <33 The first episode was also very good and it got me hyped for the rest! Secondnd Episode however let me down a bit (I thought that he got away a lil too easy with making a friend and joining the slayer club), but the animation level stayed high so I'm hoping it'll go well 8) If so, then it may just become one of my favorites this season! Next, an anime that didn't make a huge impression on me at first, but then surprised me in the next episode by being as good/better than the first and also making me realise I was already hooked to it. I'm talking about Kekkai Sensen! At first I thought the main character was another boring "your average brown haired guy with no special qualities", but luckely his eyes soon set him apart. Also! His character, clothing style and the cute monkey already make him a lot more interesting, so that actually got fixed pretty quick! As for the other characters, I thought all of them were interesting and luckely they used the second episode to explore them some further, and only added a new (and very interesting looking!!) character in the last few minutes. The animation is also very nice and the setting and plot have my interest, so yeah I'm pretty darn hyped! :D 
Further Plastic Memories greatly picked my interest in episode one with an interesting coloring style, good humor and some smooth animations and mostly.. my god how sad this episode was! ;___; I cried like a baby and that's quite an accomplishment for a first episode!! This also got me really hyped for the second episode, but instead they chose to work on the plot instead of following the "retrieve the android" frame. Although plot progress is good, this episode was kinda boring to me and they ended it with a "shocking fact" that anyone could have seen coming from miles away. So right now I'm hoping that I'll turn this into a good plot with some more moving stories!!
And now for some short reviews...
Arslan Senki: From the author of FullMetal Alchemist so count me in!! Also he was adorable in the first ep aaahh <33
Hibike! Euphonium: I don't even mind 'cute girls doing nothing the anime by Kyoto animation' anymore because I could stare at it's gorgeous animation forever <3 Also it's a nice 'breather' to have an anime that's more of a slice of life, rather than action and drama packed.
Danmato: I might never get over the fact how f*cking huge Hestia's boobs are even though she has the face and body of a 12 year old. It's too bad cause I looooveee the rest of her design but she's walking fanservice D: Despite that, the animation quality and characters still got me hooked for now. It's like.. I wanna laugh at the ridiculous fanservice but at the same time I try to ignore it and just enjoy the anime?? Myeah
Ore Monogatari!!: RINKO IS SO ADORABLE I WANT HER AS MY FRIEND AND MY GIRLFRIEND AND AS MY CHILD- also I cannot resist a lovestory about a friendly giant guy and an adorable small angel.

Well that's all for now! If you watch any of these anime or want to discuss something about them with me, feel free to comment! : DD Also please note that these are just my opinions about the anime and you should feel free to think something else if you disagree! Lastly... if I don't forget I'll try to update this journal once the season has ended and tell you guys which anime I kept/dropped and my final judgement : D
