Ok I posted something like this (a more lengthy written out post of my opinions) in my blog and my friends seemed to like it so I figured it'd be fun to try in a forum. Basically talk about Summer 2010 anime; what's your favorite? What one(s) were you disapointed with? What are you thinking of trying but not sure yet? Whatever, just keep it show specific, not about the overall season itself.

Shukufuku no Campanella: This is actually not normally my type of anime, I'm not usually into semi-girly, fantasy stuff, but it's actually really good so far. There isn't a whole lot of a plot as far as something the characters are trying to accomplish, but it does have a basis similar to that of Fairy Tail in that the characters are part of a guild going on various quests. Plus there's a slight love story which is really cute. Oh and if you're an art enthusiast I'd definately check this one out cuz the colors are vibrant and the character designs are amazing! The characters are really likeable too, there's not much to dislike about this one aside from the teeniest, slightest amount of ecchi-ish scenes. Safe to say I was very pleasantly surprised with this one.

Shiki: I was really looking foreward to this one cuz I'm really into murder mysteries, but after watching it and reading an extensive summary, I really didn't like it at all. I was dissapointed with this one to be honest, especially after I found out that it grows to involve vampires somehow (I think) I really strongly dislike vampires and will not watch/read anything involving them. Plus it was too much horror, too little mystery for me, I find horror lame and boring. Plus the colors were drab, the characters were annoying and the character designs were none too impressive either. If you're into horror and vampires/zombies/w/e they are I guess you might like it though.

Nurarihyon no Mago: Took me a few episodes to get into this one because of the lack of fight-scenes I was expecting, but I gotta admit its grown on me in the 4 episodes I've seen thus far. The animation is good, the characters are really cool and it has some real pottential to it. The only thing I would really change about it is I wish you saw Rikuo's demon form more often, cuz that makes the show about 100x cooler.

The Legend of the Legendary Heroes: Long story short, I thought this was gonna be more fantasy than anything else and I was really looking foreward to it...however the first episode wasn't particularly amazing, and the second episode turned me off completely because it turned into some major military-themed weirdness. It kinda reminded me of Chrome Shelled Regios but with a fantasy background instead of post-appocalyptic.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi: This also took me a few episodes to really get into, its not particularly exciting so much as it is addicting, its like pickle flavored potato chips, they're not terrible, but far from great...but for some reason you keep eating more. The 3rd episode got me pretty into it though because it gave me a huge liking for Taro and Otohime. Plus I like how while Taro is a flirt, he's not a lecher and he actually respects and values women, which is nice to see for a change. The characters are likeable and unique, the character designs are pretty unique too, while it takes place in a school it's original, and it doesn't really seem school-ish, and barely any of the characters are wearing school uniforms. It is in fact pretty enjoyable so far though.

Sengoku Basara Ni: Not much to say about this one, if you liked the first series (which I would highly reccomend, its a great watch) it's really much of the same, except with a less interesting antagonist than Oda Nobunaga. Its enjoyable so far though, but that's probably just because I really enjoyed watching the first series and the fact that I'm a big fan of feudal Japan and Samurai anime.

How about your thoughts?

So far i've watched Nurarihyon no Mago and Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi and im really enjoying them, i don't know if im going to watch any others though i watched one and a half episodes of Kuroshitsuji II , I guess its probably easier to understand if you watch the Prequel, i didn't, its kinda weird and confusing but intruiging none the less!

Im glad to see someone else besides me likes Shukufuku no Campanella here on CR. Indeed its setting and basis is like that of Fairy Tail and there really isnt a plot so you dont really know whats going to happen. And the pace that is going is fine with me. The love stories are great too. The art is what really hooked me though.

Amagami SS revolves around a boy named Junichi Tachibana, and his love experiences among 6 different girls. So each girl gets 4 episodes so this anime with definitely be 24episodes. After watching the story of the first girl, I was happy. It showed what romance is really like, it felt kinda like Bokura ga Ita, if you are into love-romance anime this is a must watch!

Highschool of the DEAD one of the most original anime I've ever seen, no I have not read the manga and don't plan to but I plan on watching this! The main characters name is Takashi Komuro and one random day at school he sees that there is a zombie at the gate of the school and the teachers are confused and troubled by this, the zombie bites one of the other teachers and the virus ends up spreading throughout the school. I'm usually not the type to watch these kinds of action, anime but there is a some side romance between a few of the surviving characters. Also there is some ecchi parts so yeah.

Mitsudomoe one of those "kiddie" anime, it kinda reminded me of Kodomo no Jikan but I never watched it but may reconsider after watching this. The plot is basically a new teacher named Yabe Satoshi is teaching the class with the 3 trouble Marui triplets. The story revolves around mostly comedy and some ecchi. I found that if you like stupid comedy then you should watch this or anything comedy at all.

Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~ sequel, boobs, fighting, yeah I don't remember exactly what happened in the first season but I just watch this to watch it no apparent reason, I guess for the ecchi, no other reason really.

Asobi ni Iku yo another ecchi/harem, like we don't have enough of these. Apparently everything is normal for Kio Kakuzu until he randomly meets this girl Eris that is alien from the planet Cathia. Random...

Kuroshitsuji II is by far my favorite this summer season right next to sengoku basara 2 and mitsudomoe, HOTD, and Seitokai yakuindomo. in the beginning of black butler i was pretty confused what was happening even though i already watched season 1, but by the 3rd episode i figured what was going on. This makes the series more interesting and big fans of the series are sure to be pleased.

i was into occult academy at the beginning but by episode 2 i got freaked out and decided to drop it Dx

and sengoku basara 2 is also another anime i look forward to each week, i just finished season one and yea i think season 2 is gonna be exactly the same as the first season just this time the evil dude is a massive giant with a little girly guy by his side, the game actually seems more fun and i hope this season i will actually see the green man who swings a hula hoop around Dx

Out of cureosity does Amagami SS have either ecchi or lots of drama in it? Or is it just pure cute romancy stuff? Cuz the posibillity of ecchi or annoying drama is what kind of made me not really want to watch it.

Shiki - I was going to watch it, considering how I am also a fan of horror / mystery. After seeing the character artstyle (which was terrible imo), as well as the summary, it falls into the oblivion of my dropped animes >.>

Seitokai Yakuindomo - The artstyle for girls are pretty good, guys so-so, but the content is so wrong and hilarious at the same time. It has less fanservice than I expected, but some of what the girls say are just plain dirty. Hikasa Yoko (seiyuu of Mio Akiyama from K-ON!) starring as the school council president, who says so much NSFW things just traumatized me.

Sekimatsu Occult Gakuin - Was stalling the series after watching the first episode, but when I decided to keep watching it, I found it as pretty good. I hate the guy's hairstyle though... but Maya's just plain awesome, so yeah. I wished there to be a bit more blood in the series though.

Okami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi - The artstyle's great, the fairy tale concept is decent, but I'm kinda skeptical about the plot. Would be better off if this series was a complete slice-of-life comedy. I'm pretty sure this series has fetish fuel for a lot of people - cute girl in large bunny-eared witch hat and cloak is one of the many examples.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi This romance/comedy anime is an unique anime due to how its stories revolve around famous stories that we all know....and then it puts their own twist on it. To me thats pretty cool. The characters are likable.....though if your looking for really really good comedy anime....this probabaly wont top your list....but it will sure be one to remember. The main female lead is quite an intriguing character and probably loved by all....while the main male lead is a person who is anti social to the extreme....except when it comes to his love for the main female lead.....all in all.....this is a pretty tacky romance/comedy. It surely is a must-watch for summer 2010. If I was to give this anime a number out of 10....it would be a SOLID 8. Pretty much a B+

Amagami SS First off let me just say.....I have never seen a PURE romance anime besides this ever. Because to me I thought they would not be very interesting. But Amagami SS has proved to me that Pure romance animes can be absolutely wonderful. The characters are awesome....just this whole anime is just fantastic. Morishima was the most unique female character I have ever seen in romance type animes. The anime is 24 episodes with 4 episodes given to each girl in a bunch of What If situations. This is a MUST WATCH to ANYONE who has any doubts about Pure Romance animes for any reason. This anime will definitely change your outlook forever. Everything about this anime is likable so I dont need to bother saying why its great. This anime right now gets a 10/10.

Mitsudomoe If I was to describe this show using other animes as a reference....it would that this anime is a combination of Kodomo No Jikan and Ichigo Mashimaro....and the combination WORKS GREAT! The comedy in this anime is very good and you will come to love all the characters in the show. The misunderstandings in this show are TREMENDOUS and only build up the comedy to great levels. To all comedy loving fans....and people who just like watching cute Loli's....this anime is perfect for you. I give this anime a 10/10 for its comedy.

Shukufuku no Campanella This is an anime that is a hit or miss with most people. This anime is a fantasy/romance anime....but the romance is more of a side story thing than the fantasy. The setting is similar to that of Fairy Tail due to their being Clans....and their being missions for Clans to do to earn a reward. This anime at the moment has no sort of plot....which makes it sort of refreshing to watch. This anime gives the vibes of watching a Slice of Life anime like....Hidamari Sketch or something. The type of vibe where you know nothing too interesting is going to happen...but you watch it anyway due to it making you feel kinda at ease. The visuals in this anime are fantastic. The reason its a hit or miss is due to how people on the Miss side would think its too boring....which is a logical complaint....however on the Hit side....its because its a very refreshing anime to watch....and there really isnt anything to HATE about it...besides not being as intense as what people normally watch. If there is ever such a thing as a fantasy anime with the feeling you get from a Slice of life anime....this would be it. If your able to watch all the episodes that are out right now...Im sure you will find something to love about it. However...no matter how much I like this show, I gotta give it a 6.5/10 due to how the masses wont like this probably.....and once again....this is probably going to be a hit or miss show

Seitokai Yakuindomo This is the cream of the crop of summer 2010. My personal favorite and Im sure many others. This anime is THE KING in ecchi humor. Seriously....there is no comedy anime that focuses on ecchi that can even be compared to this. And this even competes with Baka Test for the best comedy of the year. Seriously....everything about this show is just downright hilarious. No matter what genre of anime you like....you MUST watch this. Im giving this anime an 11/10. Yes an 11 because its just that good. This is a contender for best anime of 2010

Highschool of the Dead This here fellow anime fans....is an anime about zombies. People think this is Cliche...but it really isnt....seriously there have been practically no animes that specialize in zombies. Anyways this anime is just fantastic. The art is great, the story is great, but most of all what I liked about this show is.....the emotions of the people......they are all extremely true to what would happen if a zombie outbreak happened in real life. The way the students show who they really are in a dire situation....the most famous being the BFF girls. Anyway this action/horror anime is just destined to be great. You definitely need to check this out. People dislike the ecchi but....you really shouldnt bother disliking it for that. You will come to love this anime....and this is a contender for best anime of summer 2010. This anime gets a 10/10 so far

Occult Academy This is a very interesting anime. Definitely original. This show has very interesting characters that everyone should come to love. Maya and Bunmei make this show completely awesome The animation is quite nice...the story is great....there is absolutely zero things to hate about this anime. trying to save the world in 1999. This is an anime to really check out. Dont really know what to say for a review....its just very good...go watch it xD I give this anime a 10/10 for being just a wonderful anime to watch.

Asobi ni Ikuyo! I was surprised at this anime. I thought it woulda been a full out comedy...but it turns out to have a heavy action aspect to it. Alien girl comes to play on Earth....Earth wants to use/get rid of her. So much action and.....really not that much comedy. Its ecchi to which is nice. Its also a romance anime....so its bound to be good. The alien females are all likeable so far. This is kinda like To Love Ru You should probably check this out. I give this anime an 8/10

To HirakuNoShadow, I totally agree with you on your oppinions of Shiki and that rhe art/character designs were kind of crap

To superluccix thanks a lot , I think you actually just made me want to watch Amagami SS, just cuz I've been looking for a good, cute pure romance anime for a while now and I'm having trouble finding any without too much ecchi or without too much drama.

Adding to my opinion on Sengoku Basara Ni I definately am liking this a lot, however I think I'm liking the fiirst series more so far just because this one seems to elaborate more on Kenshin and the guy with the monkey more than the last series, I didn't like either of those characters at all. Plus the antagonist in this series seems kind of...meh, not really a big deal compared to Nobunaga. I dunno, tho, that could change maybe.

Well done. The opinions stated here are on point with my own so I don't feel I need to repeat something which was already said well.


Sekirei: Pure Engagement - This is the sequel to the first Sekirei anime series and I predict this one will also be twelve-episodes long which will cover the next 50 chapters or so of the manga. I've been an admirer of the manga for quite some time even before the anime was released so I'm glad to see a second season has debuted this summer. If you like ecchi anime or big breast fan service then you definitely will want to give this anime a try although I do recommend watching the first season. This anime has a nice clean visual style and the women are drawn beautifully so it should gain instant appeal to all you ecchi anime fans out there.

I've been waiting for Funimation to finally add this one. It was announced on July 2 as a simulcast, but as they have yet to start it, I am wondering if they announced it before negotiations were finalized.

They were also late in starting Sengoku Basara 2, however, so I have not given up hope.

Shiki - Okay, I'm with you on the vampire crap, but.. I actually like the manga and the anime is interesting to me so far. I like the lead, HATE the pink haired girl, and I like the eyes on the characters. Sometimes the art.. or drawning style is a little off and it annoys me, but for the most part... I like it.
High School of the Dead - No. *shakes head* I gave it a chance, I did. But, I can't get ever the major fan-service. It's not for me.
Occult Academy - I really like, 'cause it's funny and interesting.
Nurarihyon no Mago - I, really, like the manga.. so I was looking forward to this. Sort of disappointed. I would like it better if it followed the manga better and didn't do it's own thing. *shrugs*
The Legend of the Legendary Heroes - I was REALLY looking forward to this, but it turns out to be dramatic crap! *cries* Sure, they have powers.. but.. the drama.. ugh.

Shiki - The animation style turned me off initially but since I downloaded two episodes I watch them both and I will be giving this anime a chance to impressive me. The story set-up seems interesting so I hope this one is filled with some surprises as a suspense anime.
