My First Ever Post

And it will be a midseason anime review!!
ok, i know that i am really late to the game with this but bear with me please while i try to sort out the good and the poo from this season's anime.

We shall begin with the GOOD

From left to right: Fuko,Nagisa,Kyou

CLANNAD (obligatory bishoujo game adaptation of the season)
I really like Clannad not because i am a Kyoani fanboy( which i am) or a sucker for Key's games(again guilty) but because the story is really nicely laid out(i dont see any pacing problems so far unlike AIR), the pacing is good and well the voice acting is above par. So, give it a try, im sure you will like it. If you wont do it for me, do it for Nagisa-chan pleaseeeee.

From left to right: Kirino, Saya, Tamaki, MiyaMiya, Satori.

Bamboo Blade (girls with swords are pure win anime of the season)
Kendo girls, what more do i need to say?? That is of course if you discount the fact that the main characters are some of the funniest i have seen so far. Tamaki is pure awesomeness with her kendo skills, Kirino is the free spirit of the cast, Saya is as random as canonball, Miya Miya is pure yandereness, haven't seen much of Satori yet but am sure she will compliment the cast perfectly and oh did i mention, the kendo club teacher is voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi who also voiced Kamina in Gurren Lagann.

From left to right: Minami Chiaki, Kana,and Haruka.

Minami-ke (slice of life anime of the season)
Three sisters of the Minami family living under one roof without parental supervision makes a perfect recipe for some yuri loving!!(just kidding) This anime mainly focuses around the antics of the Minami sisters and how they go about their daily lives.(no robots or witches or whatever of that sort) The Minami sisters are bolstered by a great supporting cast which includes Ono Daisuke as the voice of the ever weird but just slightly cool Hosaka sempai who has a crush on the eldest of the Minami sisters.(did i mention that he hugs fishes. errr creepy.....)

From left to right:Sasahara, Ohno, Kucchi, Saki, Madarame, Kousaka, Ogiue, Tanaka(whiteheadband), and Kugayama

Genshiken 2 (otakuism anime of the season)
Well, the name pretty much says it all doesn't it. This is another slice of life anime but it is the life of otakus instead of the usual fare of extremely moe girls. If you need me to explain this to you, you shouldn't be watching anime any more and just go do something else!!!
