I decided to check this anime out cos the story sounded kind of interesting but it was mainly the art that captured my attention. The animation seemed very high quality and the character design of the girls kind of remind me of Shizuma from Strawberry Panic! It’s the really pointy noise and dainty looking faces. I seriously find Shizuma very hard to beat on the looks side. *SWOONS* hahahaha

My only complaint about this anime from watching it for a few minutes is their oversized BREASTS!!! *ROLL EYES* Seriously. *sigh* On the whole though, I do like the designs. The soundtrack that played in the opening was promising too. Finally for good measure, there are a tonne of seiyuu that will ring a bell!

  • Ami Koshimizu – Nina Wang from Mai Otome, Kanako from Marimite, Holo from Spice & Wolf
  • Aoi Yuuki – Alice from Croisee, Madoka from Puella Magi
  • Marina Inoue – Natsuru from Kampfer, Matsurika from Maria Holic,
  • Miyuki Sawashiro – Maria from Arakawa, Canaan from Canaan!!
  • Ai Shimizu – Tamao from Strawberry Panic!
  • Mai Nakahara – Nagisa from Strawberry Panic!
  • Minako Kotobuki – Mugi from K-ON!
Episode 1 was just seeing the class of students trying to attack their sensei. Looks interesting enough…and the fighting it kind of cool. I think that mysterious girl with the grey hair is Horizon? I’ll keep watching! ^_^

I’ve been meaning to summarise what is catching my eye in the coming season but spare time has been hard to find lately!! Luckily both Yuri no Boke and hashihime has both summarised what’s coming this season. I’ll simply highlight those that I will be checking out. I might not be entirely accurate on the plot summaries…just a warning…The following is broadly in the order of the most appealing first…

Hourou Musuko

Episode 1 on 13 January

Story: Shuicihi Nitori appears to be a shy and quiet preteen boy, when he transfers to a new school he quickly makes friends with the tomboyish Yoshino Takatsuki who sits next to him. It soon becomes apparent that both Shucihi and Yoshino are more than simply a sensitive boy and masculine girl, they both are transgendered. Together they decide to take the first steps toward becoming the people they want to be (taken from ANN).

Reasons for watching: There are a number of reasons to watch this one!! Firstly, the mangaka is the one from Aoi Hana, Takako Shimura!! There’s no yuri but the anime focuses on some transgender issues!? Sounds interesting!! Plus if you go to the website and check out their trailer, the art is soft and endearing with a very classical music OST. I love the use of strings!!  How can you NOT watch it!?!? Seiyuu wise, it’s also quite attractive with Aki Toyosaki (Yui from K-ON!), Nana Mizuki (Fate from Magical Girl Lyrical), Saeko Chiba (Natsuki from Mai-Hime), Yoshino Nanjou (Maria from Canaan), Yui Horie (need I say more!?) but they seem to all just play supportive roles. The main two characters are played by new voice actors, I think?

This is basically the typical horror zombie movie (I mean, anime) that is set at the highschool. Well it’s actually better than how that sums up..Surprisingly! I didn’t have much expectations on this which explains why I didn’t even mention watching it beforehand but so far I’m impressed! It’s scary (the gore and suspense of the zombies attacking) and for some reason I feel that the characters’ expression of fear is expressed quite vividly. When I was watching it, I found myself a little scared and could just imagine that I’d be pissing in my pants!!! hahhaha Oops! A bit crude! :P

Two episodes in, there are a handful of survivors in the high school:

  • Takashi – he’s in the middle picture behind the girl, Rei. He’s in love with Rei but as her boyfriend was bitten by a zombie, he had to kill him. After reconciling with Rei they both stick together to fight their way out of this mess. His weapon is a baseball bat.
  • Rei – part of the martial arts spear club, this girl can fight! She’s known Takashi as a kid. She’s voiced by Marina Inoue who was Natsuru in Kampfer!
  • Saeko – I call her the kick ass version of Sachiko!! hahahaha Don’t you reckon? She’s really strong at kendo so can definitely keep those bloody zombies at bay. She’s voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro who was Canaan!!! OMG! I only just realised!!!
  • Saya – not that likeable, she claims to be a genius – she’s quite smart but modesty, girl!!

There’s two more…but they’re not that important and I’m getting tired!! One is Kohta who is a chubby guy who is a bit pansy but turns out to be good with guns! He provides the much needed comic relief in this anime – which explains why I’ve screenshot him so many times!!! haha Last of all is Shizuka – the blonde school doctor who so happens to have very well endowed…assets…I guess she provides comic relief too but kind of annoying!!!

This one is worth watching!!

The story revolves around Natsuru Senou, a normal high school boy. One day he wakes up to find himself turned into a girl. A stuffed tiger “Harakiri Tora” comes to life and tells him to fight as a female psychic fighter “Kämpfer”. Having no idea about what’s going on, Natsuru is involved in the battles against other female Kämpfer (Wiki).

Yep! That’s basically the gist of the story! Everytime before he transforms his bracelet will glow so that it will give him some time to run and hide! haha Apparently his urge to “transform” is typically triggered by a urge to fight or by the presence of another Kampfer. Right at the start, we see Natsuru fighting a feisty red haired girl, Akane!! Not only is she pretty cool, but she’s voiced by Yui Horie!!! WooHOO!!!! hahaha

My first 5 minute impression of this?

  • I like the character designs! All the girls look quite likeable and they all remind me of a character in another anime!! haha Can you spot who they are!?! SURELY you can!! (except for one which is not from a yuri anime…it’s one of the few harem animes that I’ve watched -_-)

Kampfer Ep1aKampfer Ep1b

  • Despite the whole “guy turns girl idea” which I don’t usually like, it actually pans out ok here!! Maybe because Natsuru here seems like a nice guy BUT of course I prefer the Kampfer version of him!! :P Oh and I like how they got Marina Inoue, a female seiyuu, to voice the character!!! He’s ALMOST a girl!! hahahaha
  • Those stuffed animals are just a bit gross with their…WHAT?! INTESTINES hanging out!?! UGH!!! X_X
  • BEST of all, I caught a good handful of girly blushes in the anime!! Though most of them are not *doki doki* moments, the subtle blushes are kind of cute. hahahaha Not bad!! Not bad at all for a first episode!!

Kampfer Ep1c

YEP! I’m following this one!! ahaha ^____^
