2012 Spring anime review

Before I become aware of it, the spring anime season has ended. None of the Winter 2012 anime that I watched were carried over, and only four spring anime listed here continued into the summer season. Of which, I'm only watching one of it.

As I mentioned before, I might not write about the new Summer anime season yet, as I have not yet decide what anime to watch yet.


Accel World (アクセル・ワールド)
I am already hating the main character's appearance (not shown), but things go downhill when they introduce his sister (also not shown) and battles that drag on forever. The decision to drop came when I heard that there would be a total of about 24 episodes.

Uchuu Kyodai (宇宙兄弟)
I felt that the pace was too slow. Unlike most of the other anime I had watched, this is primarily targeted for kids.

See link for details


Sankarea (さんかれあ)
 I wasn't expecting it to be only 12 episodes. The way the finale ended leaves me questioning on what would happen from there.

Acchi Kochi(あっちこっち)
Sadly, there isn't a thing I could remember about this anime. I actually considered dropping it, but there isn't a strong reason to do so.

Natsuiro Kiseki (夏色キセキ)
This has a storyline that I could actually follow and understand, though there's something peculiar about the character design. Too much green too.

As the title suggests, this takes place in one particular summer.

Haiyore! Nyaruko San (這いよれ!ニャル子さん)
I dropped this once before, and picked it up again later on. It's a slapstick comedy, but not really the kind I would enjoy watching. Characters can be somewhat irritating in my opinion.

Saki -Achiga-hen- episode of side A (咲-Saki-阿知賀編 episode of side-A)
Centered around Madoka's old friend of the earlier season, a group of girls formed a Majong club to be in the national championships.

The amount of mahjong matches shown varies a lot from very little in the beginning, to a lot at the later episodes. Character development-wise, I felt that not much was shown in there.

Continued into Summer season

This anime started a lot latter than the ones mentioned above. The stories are visibly divided into several arcs to solve mysteries where there are a lot of unknowns and have to analyze the situation to solve it. Almost like a detective case.
