Upotte!! First Impressions

Summery (from Black and Blue Socks): In a school where girls are either brainwashed to believe they’re guns or an androids built to be fighting machines, we learn that guns have sexual desires too.

If there’s one thing Xebec can always be counted on to bring me season in and season out, it’s either the boring or the ‘What the hell Xebec?” Here’s an anime (which an adapted from a manga) with an interesting concept. The girls all represent guns. Unfortunately, the coolness for me ends there.  The show went on to be pretty much about the character FNC thinking about sex, and everyone talking about sex– with all these double entendres involving guns. There’s some other things but for the most part. That. Is. It.

I’m sure there are people out there who absolutely love this, and think this is delightfully cute and funny, but man, to me, this was just dumb. I can’t see a hardcore gun person being anything but mortified unless it’s a gun fan that also loves horny high school girls.

If I wanted to watch a cute girls being cute girls, there’s better shows even airing this season in my opinion. Not watching.  And yes, I’m pissy because I think this could have been cool. I am big a fan of Gunslinger Girl, and I liked the segment where the girls were educating the viewer about one of the guns. This could have been something interesting and original, looking at explaining why these girls are guns, how they ended up this way, what it means for their day to day, etc. Instead, it’s just otaku pandering shit.

TMI Xebec, TMI

Seriously, I wonder what they’ll do with this whole show. There’s only so many different ways one can say things as, “I’d take off my safety for him,” (if you know what they mean viewers! *wink nudge wink*).

Fractale First Impressions

First off, I’ll just be blunt and say, this is a very strange first episode. I think this probably will be a strange show. I’m hoping I’ll enjoy it, I did enjoy the first episode, but it was indeed strange. The ending of the episode had me wondering if the whole thing had jumped the shark, and then wondering if a series could jump the shark in the first episode.

I love the opening, and how it's full of fractals.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica first impressions

I’ve been really excited about this. After all, Shinbo did already direct this, well, semi-obscure magical girl series that I guess has a few fans and I happen to be one of them. So when it was revealed that he’s doing it again, and this time with the whole SHAFT studio behind, I had my fingers crossed that it would be good. After all, I know he can make the genre work. So far, I’m very very pleased.

The type of moe that appears in my nightmares.
