Summer 2015 First Episode Impressions!

(Note: I haven't tried everything I want to try since i'll always be behind on Funimation stuff)

Listed in order of how much I enjoyed them

Confirmed Favorites

Gakkou Gurashi
Non Non Biyori: Repeat

Potential Favorites

Rokka - Braves of the Six Flowers -
Charlotte
GATE
Himouto! Umaru-chan

Indeterminate

Snow White with the Red Hair*
Aoharu x Machinegun
Prison School
Overlord
Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace
Classroom Crisis
Gangsta
Actually, I Am

NOPE

Shimoneta: A Boring World where the Concept of Dirty Jokes Doesn't Exist
Monster Girls

Notes

1. I've also tried out two shorts, but I rank those differently. I greatly enjoyed both Miss Monochrome and Wakaba Girl, but since they're shorts, I treat them differently than full length shows. They'd probably be in confirmed favorites though.

2. I'm saving the third season of Wagnaria until i rewatch the first two. I loved both of those seasons though, so I don't see why I wouldn't love this one as well. Something similar can be said for Gatchaman Crowds: Insight.

3. I tried to give Monster Girls a try, but I couldn't even make it 3 minutes. No, just.... no....

4. I'm so conflicted on Snow White's first episode that I need to give it it's own note. On paper it sounds like something I would love. In actuality, there were certain aspects of the first episode I took issue with. However, the scenes shown in the ending make me think that I will love this after all. It's indeterminate in every sense of the word. However, OMG THE MUSIC. I may have to watch this show just for the music, if nothing else. Simply amazing. There were times when I was distracted from what was going on because I was just listening to the music in the background lol

Look man, if I don't directly recommend something to you, I would strongly advise not to look at my list. It might unconsciously influence you to watch something you really shouldn't

Wait... You liked Gakkou Gurashi? Lmao I still haven't watched it yet. At this point I'm very confused about what to expect from it

LOL

If you're referring to Monster Girls, rest assured, I would have tried that anyway just based on the hype around it. It's actually the same reason I tried Nisekoi, but I wound up thinking that was actually pretty good That's just me though - you know how picky I am about these sorts of things XD

As for Gakkou Gurashi.... hmm.... well, you know our tastes are quite different. It may have been unduly hasty of me to put it in confirmed favorites - as I don't know much about the show. As it stands, it's my favorite of the season though. Without doubt, question, pause, qualms, or hesitation. (just based on first episode impressions, of course).

Yeah, you know I'm just teasing you

Also: watch Gangsta. It doesn't look like much, but you should definitely at least try that first episode

The talk about it has made me eager to try Gangsta as well. That, Snow White, Laplace, and possibly Overlord. But, as always, I'm forced to suffer through weeks of delay on those. Such a shame, as those are usually the shows I wish I could be apart of the discussion on lol.

I know that to you the jury is still out on Gakkou Gurashi, but the first episode has my recommendation. Not just to you, but to everyone honestly. I'm aware moe isn't always everyone's thing, but it's worth a try every once and a while, no?

Again, speaking to everyone here.

MY love STORY!!

Not Aired

F/k Prisma Illya 2wei! Herz!


I now have a definite number 1 and 2 after seeing their second episodes, Gangsta and Rokka. They are still insanely relatively close, but Gangsta just gave me just a bit more of what appeals to my personal taste, the silent BAMF holding in the trump card that he is a better. Also having introduced Nina who I expected to find annoying was actually quite adorable as a sharp contrast in this dark, violent, and mature world of theirs. Also looking forward to learning more about Nico and Worick's past and how their paths crossed. Rokka was still stella, and just with that little bit, in love with Fremy and want to learn more about their mysteries.

Everything in the 7 to 14 range is a bit hard to rank since I do enjoy that bunch a whole lot, they either make me laugh like crazy., i.e my new pick ups: Himouto, Dirty Jokes, or a charming watch (still waiting for a few of their episodes to air), or they are just darn interesting. I am just very pleased to see myself liking Charlotte more and more, especially with its whole X-men vibe, they even a recruiting going on, and targeting to find new "mutants" LOL.

Leading the comedy pack is Prison School by far, its intensity had me on the floor laughing, I feel bad for their pain but the hilarity is worth it.

Since I half-assed watching School Live, and missed the first time run through of being surprised (multitasking ruined the amount of attention I paid to it), but the end leaves me to see that it might be really great at some point, so I will leave it on hold until I hear something spectacular about its ep 2 or 3. World trigger also on hold as I rather marathon this later and not have Saturday so clustered.

Baby Steps and Arslan keep getting better and better, that makes me happy. God Eater finally aired, really enjoyed this first episode, has that "Must kill all" vibe (AoT, Seraph, yada yada yada) which even though it might be tacky , it is still a guilty pleasure I enjoy immensely. Plus the animation/art is pretty damn fantastic and so is the ED. Ufotable = "Money in the Bank".

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime seems to have the power couple of the season, starting to really enjoy their whole independent dynamic, more so Snow White's. They can both function separately (unlike most shoujo couples; I like the genre but their couples fall flat a lot), meaning as this progresses, together they would even function on a higher level without one belittling the other in terms of the show presentation of their characteristics. Zen does have the notion to be "better" for her, but not in an egotistical way so that is refreshing. Plus having a smart Shoujo female lead is pretty damn charming and welcomed (she still did 90% of her escaping so that counts), although this whole "kill for red hair" thing might get stale fast if its repeated often.

NNBR is immensely chill, and it keeps romanticizing the country life gloriously (even tho in reality when I vist, I realize I hate it haha). the cast is too adorable not to like during their ruler duel, and this whole prequel within a prequel is actually working to my favor of the SoL genre, I like. It is a great Monday finisher, and keeps you relaxed, as if to help you start the week of the impending busy life. Still waiting for more baby Renge.

Hmm Overlord, I hope for something better in the next episode, ep2 really dragged but Albedo is still rather fantastic. While Monster Musume really rose up from last week in terms of comedy, and better girls, shame on me for not liking Smith sooner.
