Archive for the ‘Mike ‘n’ Sams Summer Anime Funstravaganza’ Category

Gantz is the first anime I ever felt compelled to score as a 1. Devoid of anything that could be considered ‘good’ in any way, shape or form, the first half was an exercise in pushing my willingness to sit through shittiness to its extremes. A horrible, horrible experience and glad was I that MAL split it into two separate entries, allowing me justification to skip out on the second half.

Cyberteam in Akihabara drove me to watch the second half of Gantz instead of it.

And to think I gave processr the joy of Kaiji

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH

So while I got the pleasure of watching Golden Boy (English dub, to comply with processr’s request), processr had the joy of purveying a rather pleasant nautical transport a.k.a School Days. Which he dropped after 3 episodes the unsporting bastard.

Gotta study!

So he gave me Gantz; I gave him Deadman Wonderland. There must be some latent hatred for each other or something, I swear.

Fortunately, MAL divides Gantz into two separate series, and as processr only tasked me to watch Gantz and not Gantz: Second Stage I only have to watch half of it! Score!

Btw, trigger warning. That a review of Gantz would even require a trigger warning should tell you everything you need to know, but it really doesn’t.

I was similarly rather unimpressed

In our last installment, I gave processr Lupin III and he in turn gave me Spice and Wolf. We both rolled a 3 – a show we hadn’t seen but think might be enjoyable – and it makes me wonder just how well he knows me and my taste. My rationale was simple; I had watched Mine Fujiko and The Castle of Cagliostro and enjoyed them, so I figured going back to the roots might be fun! But his rationale for Spice and Wolf? I can only make intelligent guesses about it, but if he was picking based on what he knows about my tastes then he has them pegged down pretty well.

Horo is just wonderful, you guys

So after having given processr the oh-so enviable task of sitting through OreImo, he responded with tasking me to watch ChäoS;HEAd (hereafter Chaos;Head because seriously). Now, I absolutely loved Steins;Gate, and the company that made the original visual novel for that had also developed Chaos;Head at an earlier date. The anime adaption for Chaos;Head similarly predates Stein;Gate’s, and both are apparently set in the same universe. So how was the spiritual predecessor to one of the best things I watched in 2011?

This week’s pick for processr is just after the short(ish(not really)) review. Rules, if you want a reminder, are back in the first post!

So me and processr are like bros irl, going to the same uni and anime society and all that, so we decided to do this thing over the summer where we make each other to watch a range of series and just generally force our tastes on/fuck with each other.

How this is going to work is that each week we randomly generate a number between 1 and 5, and pick a series for the other to watch based on that number. In the same post we also give a short review of what we were made to watch the week before. And of course there are a bunch of restrictions and stuff that should be established, so to start this cavalcade of excitement: rules!
