Anime of Tomorrow

Anime of the Week (9/30 – 10/6)

Anime of the Week – Chuunibyou
This series touches on several themes that are important to me including role playing games, skepticism, young people growing up and girls who are into fantasy.                              
September 30 SAO Ep. 13 When we get comfortable we sometimes get complacent. But quite often it’s worth taking the risk to gain a greater reward.
Kokoro Connect Ep. 13 Again, the simple theme of just talking through your problems prevails. This ordeal ended rather capriciously, though.
Dog Days 2 Ep. 13 A peaceful ending to a story that got lost along the way. Not exactly amazing, but nothing to complain about, either.
Shin Sekai Yori Ep. 1 Initial impression – doesn’t waste any time getting into the story
October 1 Persona 4 Ep. 26 After seeing the true end, I’m calling this meld of anime and video game plot lines a philosophically satisfying success.
Total Eclipse Ep. 14 Even with humanity’s existence on the brink, politics are still costing soldiers their lives. How can we win like this?
October 3 Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun Ep. 1 Initial impression – another awkward romance I’m not in the mood for (5/10)
October 6 Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ep. 1 Initial impression – youthful silliness vs mature rationality
