Anime winter 2016 to-watch

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 17, 2016, 5:20 AM
Hey everyone!  ~

It seems I skipped the Fall season of 2015 oops :00 So I'll start with a quick list of the anime I watched & finished and then go onwards to what I'll (most likely) be watching this season! I always like making these journals so yep, here I go again *p*

:star: Fall 2015 :star:

I started the following series:
- Comet Lucifer
- Haikyuu!! 2
- K: Return of Kings
- Noragami Aragoto
- One Punch Man
- Shomin Sample 
- Owari no Seraph: Nagoya kessen-hen
- Sakurako-san no ashimoto ni wa shitai ga umatteiru 
- Subete ga F ni naru : The perfect insider
- Young Black Jack

I finished + score
- Comet Lucifer 6.5/10
- Haikyuu!! 2 (still going on, but atm it's a 10/10 cause I love Haikyuu holy ffkkk)
- K: Return of Kings 7.5/10
- Noragami Aragoto 8/10
- One Punch Man 9/10
- Shomin Sample 6.5/10
- Owari no Seraph 7/10
- Sakurako-san 8/10

I dropped
- Subete ga F ni naru
- Young Black Jack

I dropped these series because F ni naru had suuuchhh boring and uninteresting characters, the series wasn't interesting enough for me and the pace was too slow. As for Black Jack, I wanted to learn how a story from Osamu Tezuka would be, but.. I feel like this adaption didn't knew what it wanted to be? I was hoping for a medical story cause I love learning stuff, but it was also a war series and with fanservice and some black marker shit and??? Idk what it wanted to be but I stopped watching and completely forgot about this anime. Overall this whole season wasn't too good actually. The best anime was by far One Punch Man with it's outstanding animation, interesting plot and good characters. I also had lots of fun watching the also beautifully animated Noragami and Haikyuu, and Sakurako-san was actually pretty good too. I'd say Sakurako-san no ashimoto ni wa shitai ga umatteiru was the biggest surprise for me this season. It wasn't outstanding but every episode was sooo tense and the mysteries were very interesting. The series used a lot of knowledge about the human body and many other thins to solve it. It feels like a more mature series so if that sounds good to you, go and watch it!

Now, onwards to the winter B)

:star: Winter 2016 :star:

So far I've seen the first episode of
- Active Raid (but stopped halfway the ep haha uhhh)
- Ajin (movie part 1)
- Akagami no Shirayukihime 2
- Boku dake ga inai machi
- Bubuki Buranki
- Dagashi Kashi
- Dimension W
- Hai to gensou no Grimgar
- Haruchika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun suru
- Koukaku no Pandora (stopped halfway the ep)
- Luck & Logic
- Musaigen no Phantom world
- Shoujo-tachi wa kouya wo mezasu
- Shouwa genroku rakugo shinjuu
- And the Fall leftover, Haikyuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

I'm wanna continue following + reason
- Ajin
So far so good! Suuuper interesting plot that makes for a really intense story, my goodness I was pinned to my chair while watching. I probably even forgot to breath. It was so gooddd *___* The 3D was only slightly annoying, it looked pretty good 99% of the time //praise the lords// I'm very curious as to what's going to happen! I can only hope the poor main char won't become a Kaneki 2, aka suffering :'3c
- Akagami no Shirayukihime 2
I've seen the first season and enjoyed it so naturally I'll watch the second B) The first ep made me both squeel from "aahhh so cute!!" and "graaahh why so shoujo??" haha. Sometimes the shoujo just hurts :0
- Boku Dake ga inai machi
If you are not yet following this anime then drop WHATEVER it is you're holding, run to a nearby computer or grab a phone/ipad, go to your anime-watching site, and sit down and WATCH AN AMAZING ANIME BEING BORN. Cause hooooooly fuck, this anime, also called ERASED in English, did everything right in it's first episode that could go right, then continued to be amazing in the 2nd ep. So far there are only 2 eps and I'll be counting the hours until the next episode! I won't spoil too much but it's basically about an unsuccesful mangaka who has a weird ability. Before something bad is going to happen he gets send about 5 minutes back in time. He then has to find out what's wrong so he can stop a disaster from happening, or at least make sure it ends not as worse as it should have. But one day something really, REALLY terrible happens to him. His ability kicks in and he gets send back.. to 18 years ago. 
This anime has very smooth and solid animation, a nice style, good characters, good plot and the people behind it absolutely truly know how to make a great anime. I'm no expert at alll about cinematics but I feel like this anime is done so great! The way they show everything and go from scene to scene and what not is done very solid, besides the music that knows how to create a certain mood on just the right time. So sit down and watch, by the end you've finished the first ep you'll know you don't regret this B) 
- Dimension W
Feels like Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy.. even though I've never actually seen any of those haha. The animation and story telling is pretty solid, the setting is interesting, the plot SOUNDS interesting, and the characters so far are diverse and great! I looovee the little robot girl, I hope she'll become badass *p* 
- Hai to gensou no Grimgar
A bunch of kids that have to survive in the world of Grimgar where they've been dropped without any memory of where they were before that. Well rather, not any memory at allll. Their team sucks so hard they can't even kill 1 goblin, so they don't have much food either. I think this anime will follow how they grow stronger togheter and learn how to survive, probably including some shady plot that learns us why they were dropped in this computer game-like world. There's a bit of weird fanservice and some characters annoy me.. but the bg's are beaaauuutttifull, the animation is great and it's good entertainment, so I'll stick around ~
- And of course, Haikyuu haha

May watch, may drop depending on the first few episodes
- Bubuki Buranki
The 3D here is actually a bit more annoying than Ajin and I'm not too sure yet about the setting and everything. It's sooo much it's confusing me;; But I feel like I'll most probably stick around with this anime.
- Dagashi Kashi
The purple haired girl is, like, 50% of the plot as she talks about 50% of each episode and seems to try to appeal to every fetish there is (loli, megane, bishoujo, drunk..? etc). The style is interesting tho and the other girl is a lot cuter and more normal. The main character, a guy named Kokonatsu (aka Coconuts) is boring and average tho. But the setting is a candy shop outside of a city and I really dig that. I think there's a pretty big change I'll stick around but not too sure.
- Haruchika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun suru
This anime is about two childhood friends, Chika (girl) and Haruta (boy) who are in the same wind music club, looking for new members, solving puzzles during the episode, while both having a crush on their teacher... uuhh.. so.. what even is this anime? A love story? A mystery anime? About the music club? I don't know and the anime doesn't know either! But the style is pretty adorably and Chika is drawn super pretty!! I'm also interested in music anime in hopes to learn more about instruments so I'll stick around for that. The puzzles were also actually pretty good but it's kinda annoying how they're 95% solved bu Haruta who's a pretentious genius boy or something :| Also looks a ton like Mika from Owari no Seraph B')
- Musaigen no Phantom world
I love Kyoani oh GOODDDD do I love Kyoani..'s animation. Musaigen no Phantom World is just as beautifully animated as any other Kyoani series, including beautifull backgrounds and colorfull worlds but.. they also beautifully animated.. Mai's boobs? Like all the time? This anime is filleddd to the brim with fanservice so weird that it grosses me out. The plot also isn't spectacular at all so.. plotwise I'm out and the fanservice also makes me run away. But then I'm lured in back again due to the animation :'3c //help// Unless the fanservice gets really stuped/gross or the plot really sucks, I'll stick around.
- Shouwa genroku rakugo shinjuu
The first episode was actually really sweet and heart-warming!! A real josei anime ahh ;v; The main char is so likeable I'm really rooting for this guy!! And I can feel the drama coming haha. If it stays good and heartwarming, without TOO much (useless) drama, then count me in! But since I haven't seen too many josei anime (just 1 actually haha) I wasn't yet sure if this is something for me. Time to find out!

Already dropped;
- Active Raid
Too much info, too many characters, not interesting enough & I already have enough stuff t wath B')
- Koukaku no Pandora
Just meeehhhh
- Shoujo-tachi whatever the fuck the name is
When you're annoyed with the way everyone's hair is drawn you alreayd know it's gonna be a tough time. Then the moment you realise all characters are just as boring as the plot, you're out.
- Luck & Logic
Confusing plot, the main guy looks weird due to the style, fights are in 3D (I mean go hard of go home, pick 3D or 2D!!!) and I can feel a boring harem coming. Neehhhh

And that's it for this season! \O/ Please ignore any typing errors as I wrote a lot :'3cc And feel free to drop a comment with your opinions and/or what you're gonna watch! Lastly, if I manage to remember haha, I'll write my final opinions and what I finished for this season when Spring 2016 starts! :star:
