Ashita no Anime

Anime of Tomorrow

Anime of the Week (7/8 – 7/14)

Anime of the Week – Accel World
I think the last time I hated a character this much was Akira Amamiya in ef – a tale of melodies. Nomi is one of those well-designed villains who revel in subjugating other people; using them to boost themselves. I can’t wait to see how this is going to unfold.                                
July 9 Muv-Luv Total Eclipse Ep. 2 This mecha anime continues to be very lackluster. It’s not bad, but if things don’t pick up I might drop it.
Hyouka Ep. 11.5 Oreki’s laziness vs Chitanda’s energy is always a complimentary clash of world views. It’s good he’s not very stubborn.
July 10 Hyouka Ep. 12 I’m confused as to why Oreki’s oversight on the conclusion to the movie has just been dropped and the story is moving on.
Yuru Yuri 2 Ep. 1 Initial impression – moe of the same
Tari Tari Ep. 2 This was quite a hectic series of events, but I liked Konatsu’s determination. Other than that, what are the guys up to?
July 11 Sword Art Online Ep. 1 Initial impression – beautiful and straightforward
Kokoro Connect Ep. 1 Initial impression – naturally smart and funny
Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai Ep. 1 Initial impression – surprisingly not so bad
Dog Days 2 Ep. 1 Initial impression – more of the same with more characters
July 12 Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru! Ep. 1 Initial impression – less than ordinary (4/10)
July 14 Accel World Ep. 14 This series has finally introduced a really ominous villain who is already giving a much needed injection of conflict.
Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate Ep. 1 Initial impression – somewhat scattered, but interesting
Arcana Famiglia Ep. 2 As little as this episode contributed to moving the story along, it did a good job with its character building.
Eureka AO Ep. 13 I like where this is starting to go. The complete picture is taking shape as the links between the series are revealed.
