First Impressions

Kamisama Dolls

The first episode didn't leave a big impact on me, but it had an interesting story, and after watching the second episode it feels that the story is moving along just fine. Two seemingly important characters are introduce, the detective and his daughter. One thing I really like was the opening song, it has a Spanish feel to it. Most likely I'll keep watching this anime, it has a pretty common story, but it still works for me.

Nekogami Yaoyorozu

I don't know too much about this anime, after just watching the first episode, but I'm going to keep watching it. The characters are interesting, the setting is different than what I'm use to watch, and they are well drawn.

Sacred Seven

After watching the above scene I realize that this anime has nothing new to offer. Of course she is so rich she can buy the school and improve it so she can be with the main character. Of course there are militarize maids that help in their missions.  Of course they meet before, when they were kids, but he just doesn't remember her. This anime only lasted two episodes before I dropped it.

Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi

This anime barely lasted the first episode before I dropped it. The main reason is the censorship they use. Sometimes it looks like when you take a picture and after you develop them you see this huge line going across it. Other times it looks like you took a picture directly at flash light.


The appeal of this types of shows is the fanservice, but this anime obscures it so much that there is no real fanservice. At one point the moans of one of the girls was just remove. Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls did a much better job at censoring. If some one wants to watch this they should wait for the uncensored version to come out.

This show is getting interesting and slightly more coherent.
 Apparently this show has something to do with basketball. All I know is that Hinata is my favorite character in this show.
Ikoku Meiro no Croisée
This is probably my favorite new show this season. One of the complains I have for this show is that the animation looks kinda weird sometimes. It feels like they put more attention at the background than the characters themselves.

For some reason it looks weird to me.
But looking at Yune I don't mind it at all.

Random stuff: The World God Only Knows II

This is a show I like the most and one of the few that I watch from beginning from end. And this is why:
Tenri Ayukawa and Diana

This picture got my hopes up, that I would see this character appear in the anime.

Mini manga reviews (14-10)

This mini reviews might contain spoilers.
14. Sekirei
I started reading this manga because of the drawings. The story is the standard male protagonist meets a whole bunch of the cute girls that have special powers, and they must find a human partner in order to fight against other cute girls. This story is very predictable, everything you expect from a harem is here. But the part that got me to stop reading the manga was the part where one of the characters that I thought was a guy turn to be a girl, or started to turn into a girl. It was so predictable that the first time that character was introduce, his/her name is Homura, I already knew that at some point in the story this character was going to reveal herself as a girl due to something the main male protagonist did or said. I don't read it anymore but the characters are still cute enough that I somethings see some of the chapters just to look at the characters. Even without reading the manga I kind of know what's happening in the manga by just looking at the drawings. I haven't seen the anime yet, because I don't want to see this Homura character reveal herself as a girl all over again.

Grim Reaper

13. Grim Reaper
This is another manga that I started reading because of the picture. The title and the image they use didn't seem to fit, and that's what got me interested. Unfortunately, this manga is five chapters long and it stops just when things start to get exiting. But, in the five chapters there are more opponents than most manga would have in 20 chapters. It stills feel incomplete, the author obviously planned a big story but I guess it was not that popular and had to be dropped.

Near Equal
12. Near Equal
If this manga had more chapters, only two chapters are out, it would be higher in my list. The story is about two characters, in different places, that are bored with their lives and due to some magic mirror their two rooms become connected. After meeting each other they are able to converse to one another. I don't think that there are going to be anymore chapters of this series, but I still enjoy these two chapters.

Mayo Chiki!
11. Mayo Chiki!
This manga is base on a light novel and I only seen three chapters of the manga. The story is about a butler who hides the fact that she is a girl because if someone finds out she is going to be fire from her position from taking care of her ojoo-sama. But, of course someone finds out, the male protagonist, and now Subaru Konoe, the butler, and Kanade Suzutsuke, the ojoo-sama, become close to Kinjirou Sakamachi, the male protagonist, in order to prevent him from exposing their secret.  I have yet to find a website that has the light novels so I'm just reading the manga. But, now that a anime version is coming out I'll just watch the anime and probably forget about the manga and light novel.

Kamikami Kaeshi
10. Kamikami Kaeshi
 This manga also has just two chapters out and there are seems that this story has been dropped. The story is about Mashiro, a girl who has spend her whole life locked away in a room protecting the gods that live inside her hair. After she gets out she finds out that the people she thought were there to protected might not be her friends. What I like the most are that the drawings are very rich, every page looks great. The adult transformation of Mashiro makes me want more of this manga.

The World God Only Knows

Elsea de Lute Irma
Keima Katsuragi
The World God Only Knows is the story of Keima, known as the capturing God. He is so famous that it caught the attention of the demon world. Keima unknowingly accepts a contract in which he must capture escaped spirits that hide within girls hearts. Which it can only be accomplish by making the girls fall in love and kiss Keima. He must team up with a 300 year old demon that looks very young for her age. Her name is Elsea and present her self to everyone as Keima illegitimate half sister. It would seem that Keima will have no trouble in capturing the hearts of girls since he is the famous capturing God. The problem is that he is the capturing God of 2D girls, that he captures in games. To make things worse, if he fails to fulfill the contract he and Elsea will loose their heads. So, Keima using the knowledge he acquire by playing all those dating Sim games must capture the hearts of real girls.

Ayumi Takahara
Shiori Shiomiya
I am a big fan of the manga and after hearing that this was going to be an anime I was very exited. And after viewing the first season I am very pleased with the result. The opening, closing, and the music they use are very well done. The main character, Keima, is like no other character I'd seen in a while. Unlike many male leads he knows the feeling of the girls he encounters. The secondary character is Elsea. She is not very smart but knows her limitations, and depends on Keima to come up with the plans to complete the captures. She is one of my favorite characters in the series. The girls that Keima must capture are: Ayumi Takahara, Mio Aoyama, Kanon Nakagawa, and Shiori Shiomiya. They all look very cute and different from one another. Ayumi's and Shiori's captures are my favorite ones this season. I can't wait until I see Tenri Ayukawa animated.
