Erica`s Autumn 2014 short anime list

Recommended Posts

After watching 1st episodes of most of the animes from this season I`ve decided to share my opinion about them. Stick with me for a while and maybe you will discover something new interesting for you.


I`ve decided to grade them from 1 to 10 based on how much fun they are. Fun factor is an essence of many things like: smooth animation, beautiful backgrounds, awesome music, likeable characters and their designs, overall story and ideas, humour, my own fetishes (twintails *-*) etc. In other words the higher the grade the more entertaining that anime was to me.


Let`s start!


1/10 - The lowest of the low, why did I ever bother with trying to watch this?


Tribe Cool Crew


2/10 - Awful tier, could have been worse, but only a little.


Ai Tenchi Muyo!

Orenchi no Furo Jijou


3/10 - Bad.


Magic Kaito 1412


4/10 - Weak and boring trier. Watch only if you really don`t have anything else to do.


Gundam: G no Reconguista

Hi☆sCoool! SeHa Girls


5/10 - Totally average


Garo: Honoo no Kokuin

World Trigger

Donten ni Warau


6/10 - Animes here show some promise, maybe they will get better later on.


Nanatsu no Taizai

Akatsuki no Yona

Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai

Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken

Denki-gai no Honya-san

Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji

Shingeki no Bahamut: Genesis



7/10 - Those look quite interesting.

Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Grisaia no Kajitsu

Gugure! Kokkuri-san

Madan no Ou to Vanadis

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso

Amagi Brilliant Park


8/10 - Good :D

Ore, Twintails ni Narimasu.

Hitsugi no Chaika: Avenging Battle

Log Horizon 2nd Season

Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu

Selector Spread WIXOSS

Sora no Method

Terra Formars

Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete


9/10 - You need to try this! Excellent.


Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de

Psycho-Pass 2

Trinity Seven


10/10 - Best of the best *GOD TRIER*


Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (TV)



As always there were few animes that I`ve decided to avoid at all cost in order to protect my poor mental health:


Ganbare! Lulu Lolo 2nd Season

Fuusen Inu Tinny

Aikatsu! 3rd season

Kaitou Joker

Yowamushi Pedal: Grande Road

Gundam Build Fighters Try

Sanzoku no Musume Ronja

Bonjour♪ Koiaji Pâtisserie


Watching some of them when you`re older than five puts you in a serious disadvantage and rest is simply something that I simply can`t stomach even with my high resistance to similar stuff.

In case anyone else is curious: the head of the production team for Cross Ange is Mitsuo Fukuda, who directed Gundam SEED. Considering how fucking shit Gundam SEED was, it's clear that everything he touches is predestined to end up in a shithole. I wrote a quick summary of episode 1's events on another forum which I'll copy-paste real quick:


[spoiler=ChexGuy's unorthodox Cross Ange ep 1 plot summary]Cold opening with your birdy motorcycle mech things flying and Nana Mizuki singing and HOLY SHIT DRAGONS. Some crazy angles going on here, fanservice lolololol. Also the birdy mech things transform into more humanoid forms that cover the otherwise exposed cockpit from their flying motorcycle mode.

Various technobabble is thrown around and clearly Nana Mizuki's character, Ange, is some sort of weirdo because she's goddamn singing in combat and breaks off from the group and proceeds to take down a giant dragon by herself. She climbs out of her cockpit to shoot it with a rifle WHILE HER MECH IS ALSO SHOOTING IT. WHAT. That still got me even though it was in the PV from earlier this year.


Nana Mizuki OP.


Cut to motorcycle space lacrosse (I can't make this shit up) where long-haired Ange is apparently some sort of star player and she has a stupidly long name like Angelise Ikaruga Ginkei Radiant Silvergun R-Type Darius DoDonPachi (note: I may have forgotten part of her name and substituted something that sounds similar in turn). She saves a falling team mate and that costs her the game blah blah blah who the hell cares, apparently she's leaving for some coming-of-age thing that won't let her play space lacrosse anymore. Her older brother is everyone you hated from Code Geass and her little sister is Dio's little sister from Buddy Complex except her wheelchair floats.


So basically in this world you've got some bullshit non-plot device called the Light of Mana that is apparently the evolution of humanity and people can use magic and shit to make shields and use telekinesis and whatever. People that cancel out the effects of this magic are called "Norma" and are shunned from society to an extreme, you see this when the princess talks down to a mother trying to shield her Norma baby from the authorities (spoiler: baby is taken away blah blah blah who cares).


So at night where the princess and her mother have some crazy nightwear with gratuitous cleavage (I think I forgot to mention all the buttshots in the opening) and the princess is like OH MAN OUR MAGICAL SOCIETY IS SO PERFECT AND EQUAL WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT IF WE COULD EXTERMINATE (exact word used) THOSE SCUM OF THE EARTH NORMA TYPE PEOPLE IT WOULD BE EVEN BETTER and the mother doesn't say anything she just smiles and says YO YOU'RE A WOMAN NOW HAVE MY TOTALL BITCHIN' RING THAT'S A FAMILY HEIRLOOM


Then the next day at the coming of age ceremony the princess steps into some chamber thing I dunno what the hell that thing does but she breaks it because SURPRISE SHE'S A NORMA WHOAAAAA SO SHOCKING. Her mother tries to ferry her away and is killed in the process oh noooooooo emotional breakdown. Oh yeah that teammate she saved earlier was like YOU LIED TO US YOU SUCK wow what a scumbag and the mother she talked down to earlier is in a dark room watching it all on TV with this crazy expression like HA YOU HAD IT COMING


No longer a princess because she's the scum of the earth or some shit the heroine is taken to Alcatraz or Azkaban or Nova Prospekt or something. They take all her stuff including her mother's bitchin' ring because apparently it hasn't sunk in that YOUR MOTHER IS DEAD AND IT'S THE FIRST EPISODE GET REKT. So you've got some glasses nurse that can use magical glowy hands but she's with some military chick who is also a Norma. So because our heroine is still in shock she's all I'M ROYALTY FUK OFF I'LL HOOK U IN THE GABBER m8 SWARE ON ME MUM and they're like LOL YOUR MUM'S DEAD WHY DON'T YOU USE YOUR MAGICAL GLOWY HANDS TO TAKE YOUR PRECIOUS RING BACK. Surprise, it doesn't work so Norma military chick literally kicks the shit out of heroine and proceeds to (completely necessary) cut open her clothes with her sword and bend her over a table while nurse lady uses magical glowy shit to restrain her.




Also butt shot behind cover and then one last completely necessary but slightly censored scene of former princess' undergarments being torn off. Then implied sodomy because "it's a medical procedure" also rape symbolism.


Then it cuts to the ED with some lesbian harem thing where three characters are naked in a bedroom for no reason SURPRISE ONE FINAL SHOT OF ANGE LYING DOWN WITH A BLOODY BLANKET AND TEARS STREAMING OUT OF HER BUG-EYED TERRIFIED EXPRESSION BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH RAPE SYMBOLISM then the rest of the ED and the episode preview.



I'd also like to point out the already mediocre animation quality combined with the fact that Nana Mizuki and Minori Chihara have voice roles (the former being the main character). Name the last show with Minori Chihara in it that wasn't by KyoAni that had good animation. owait you can't. This show is going to have shit production value and the only thing you'll watch it for is lesbian femdom almost-rape.


On the other hand, G-Reco is Yoshiyuki Tomino's first major Gundam project since he directed Turn A back in 1999. Everything he does has a relatively slow start but usually ends up being good (a notable exception being Brain Powerd which flat out makes zero fucking sense). Sunrise is clearly banking on that and Gundam Build Fighters TRY, which seems to have the most budget out of all three shows they're airing this season. G-Reco's animation style is noticeably old-school and probably requires less budget as a result.

Setting aside the obvious desire for maor F/SN, Log Horizon 2nd Season really appeals - been waiting for it since I finished watching the first season. The show is actually abit meh, but there was just this really creepy atmosphere for the first few episodes when people were being held hostage, hoping it can carry forward. Plus I like the idea of the "NPCs" becoming self-aware.

You`re right! I`m from a race of potatoes that only imitate humans so we can survive in this harsh world. :D Remember to eat your french fries with more hate from now on.

is everyone else gonna list their top anime of 2014?


I would say the new UBW series, but that is such a heavy bias I'll just ignore it as a option for now lol (plus it'll technically 2015 by the time I watch it).


Honestly? I enjoyed Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei the most out of what I've watched this year - pacing was mostly good and it kept in mind it was going to go beyond a single season. Just waiting for that next season. -_-
