Winter 2016-What I’m Watching

Since we’re about halfway through this season, I wanted to list the four series I’ve decided to watch. I don’t usually try to keep up with currently airing shows, but there were some that I wanted to watch so this is what I ended up with.

1. Haikyu!! 3rd Season

I picked up the first two seasons of Haikyuu in order to prepare for this one, and I am certainly not disappointed. It is a bit harder to watch when there’s only one episode a week, which slightly disrupts the flow from episode to episode. Haikyuu does an excellent job making you eager for the next episode, and even though I know how the season will end, I still find myself on the edge of my seat during some seriously epic moves. Gah, sports anime always gets me.

2. Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ Maji Love Legend Star

79194

In short, the fourth season (how did it make four, you have to wonder) is pretty much the same as all the others. I’m not really sure why I keep watching it, after all, Ai isn’t going to be in this season that much. I just like laughing at how corny this show can get. The plotline of this season, which basically has every member of STARISH pair up with a member of HEAVENS to sing a song, get slightly repetitive over time. I’ll keep watching it because I want to see the animation for STARISH’s song.

3. Watashi ga Motete Dousunda (Kiss Him, Not Me)

81953

I’m a little upset because there were many arcs from the manga that weren’t shown in the anime, including the arrival of Mutsumi’s brother and everyone’s confession to Kae. Those  were my favorite parts and it’s unfortunate that they weren’t included. The most recent episode (The Fujosji Dispute) was pretty amusing, especially since I’ve had that argument with my friends before (She said Izaya X Shizuo, I said Shizuo X Izaya, we agreed to disagree).

4. Yuri!!! on Ice

My favorite show this season, and possibly of all time, is definitely Yuri!!! on Ice. It has everything I look for in an anime, including:

  • Sports (which is incredibly well animated)
  • Cute boys (the style is really pretty, Victor is my personal favorite)
  • Yaoi (LOADS of it)

It isn’t officially tagged shounen-ai or anything, but just seeing how Yuri and Victor act around each other, anyone would think they’re in love.

I’m the more hyped for the next episode of Yuri!!! on Ice than any of the other shows I’m watching. I’ve probably screamed more in the fifth episode than any other show. I already want there to be a second season, and I think there will be due to the amount of popularity the show has gotten. It’s not based off of anything, so I don’t believe that anyone really knows what’s going to happen other than the staff. Also, if you change the lyrics of the opening song from “We were born to make history” to “We were born to ship Victuri”, it fits in perfectly. AHHHHH I SHIP THEM SO HARD THAT’S A NEW OTP RIGHT THERE!!!

I like Victor a lot a lot…

That’s all for now. I’ll post once the season ends!

Day 16: Anime With The Best Animation

noragami

I focus on plot line more than animation quality, but Noragami has always caught my eye with beautiful backgrounds and quality.

The story is so sweet with the love triangle between Yato, Hiyori, and Yukine. The concept of gods fighting each other is really appealing too and makes for extremely interesting (and funny) situations. Noragami has made me cry, and I will definitely put Noragami Aragoto on my Anime To Watch list.
