Well, guys! The fall season has ended and we are kicking off Winter season! The new shows are starting up! It's time to be introduced to some new stuff and I'm excited! So as always make sure you're caught up so you don't get spoiled and get right to it!
January 3rd, Tuesday:
Nobunaga No Shinobi:
Chou Shounen Tanteidan Neo:
I know you were probably hoping for something better. The show has some funny facial expressions but it isn't very funny at least not so far. It's supposed to be a comedy but it doesn't quite hit the mark. Don't get me wrong it tries but its sense of humor is very... cringy to me I guess? That and the plot is basically Sherlock Holmes or Tin Tin or something, but Japanese. It's about a genius detective guy with a boy who idolizes him plus some girl he's friends with. It's not off to a good start but then again how many jokes do I expect from your first episode being about killing a bug? Oh well...

Akiba's Trip The Animation:
January, 5th, Thursday:
Masamune-kun no Revenge:
January 6th, Friday:
It has an interesting newer concept! It's a mix of magic, military, and action. The one flaw is the title character. She is completely evil and pretty hard to root for in any way. On the other hand, we have the other brunette girl! She is voiced by one of my favorite female voice actors and she is the opposite so yay! I look forward to seeing where this goes and this is definitely one of the Winter anime's we should give some attention too! The animation is interesting looking, and the plot moves at a good pace! When people start going after this crazy little girl, I bet we'll get more action scenes and I look forward to that as well! Also, that one guy with the glasses at the beginning and end has really weird hair! Not important but...I noticed it.
The best part was I was able to watch 2 episodes! As I already said love all the characters. The girl who sung on stage in the second episode was really nice! The blond dude being gay surprised me a lot as well, and I can't wait to see even more characters! Everyone that's been introduced has certainly been great so far!
Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu:
I figured I would watch even though we already have Long Riders for that! I don't regret it, it's a little on the blander side but it is cute! I love the two girl's we are focused on so far they are an interesting duo, albeit a formula that's kind of common. The other girl seems pretty cool as well! I don't get how you can forget to ride a bike, I don't know anyone that has had that happen to them, and I never do whenever I haven't in awhile. Pretty cute and nice pilot, though!
Schoolgirl Strikers: Animation Channel:
Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen:
I just remembered how much I hate Yukio, though. He was always a huge turd no change there. Too bad he's too useful and important to the story, we'll never get rid of him haha. I love Rin, though he's my favorite character in this show and still is! Everyone is not taking Rin being the son of satan as well, to be expected. I'm excited to see how that develops as we go and excited to get introduced to the new character's we will be seeing!
I'm excited to get a dub again the most! I watched this series and dub so it just isn't right especially without Sam as Mephisto! Looking forward to next time for sure!
January 7th, Saturday:
How the main character apologizes was also pretty funny I laughed at that bit and how the gag went on for a bit! I'm excited to see the stuff these characters do and the supernatural elements in this show! I hope we get a bit more adventure to make things interesting but right now I'm satisfied with this and enjoy it! I look forward to learning more about this world and it's characters but this show probably won't be for everyone. The cutesy nature might turn a few of you away!
Time Bokan 24:
Why do all the yaoi couples have such big age gaps? It doesn't make any sense and isn't appealing. The story seems somewhat appealing but this has been done like 50 times over. I can name like 3 different anime with an almost identical or very similar premise. I know ideas can often be similar since there are only so many ideas out there but come on! This one seems to take what was good from those stories and water it down into some dull formula. My opinion on it is still meh until future notice. It isn't bad at least not yet but it is...dull and sort of formula.
3-gatsu no Lion:
Demi-chan wa Kataritai:
I love the world and I love how monsters work in. The characters are the best! I love them all so far and the succubus was really well thought out. A succubus that doesn't want be flirtatious is a fun concept! It will be fun to see her more! We became more familiar with Hikari and Kyouko this time around and they are cute as well of course! I feel like I'm getting to know new friends when watching out which is a feeling I love to get from shows like this! Awesome pilot and I like this so far! I'm looking forward to more!
Sengoku Choujuu Giga:
Chain Chronicle: Haecceitas no Hikari:
I like this interesting way of telling the story and getting to know their characters when their down instead of at their best makes the whole thing more interesting to watch. I have no one I hate so far! Everyone is written well and has their own distinct personality and I like it! This is a good show so far, it might be one of the higher quality one's this Winter season! I'm looking forward to seeing more!
First the most important arc, the Yang arc. Yang got battle advice from her Dad and it is true Yang uses her semblance a lot. I like how he teases her but she takes it so well. I should strive to be more like that! No matter what just water off a duck do your own thing! The fight was really cool, it's great to have Yang back! That and some information about Raven is coming up! We are going to see her again very soon, possibly with Yang!
Then, of course, we had Weiss who used her semblance successfully for the first time! We as a fandom are very proud of her of course. I want to smack Whitley he's like the world's most obnoxious little brother. Klien, of course, is going to help Weiss but we all knew that he is the one that should be Weiss's Dad he understands her personal needs better than her Dad ever could! AU where Klien adopts Weiss guys, MAKE IT HAPPEN.
We get back to Blake and the person attacking her is someone she knows and turns out she's really cool! She's a freaking Chameleon Faunus! I never would have come up with something like that and it's just as cool as it sounds! Blake also cares way more about Sun or is more showing that she cares now! I like that!
Meanwhile with Ruby things aren't looking good. Her Uncle could very well die especially with all the infighting going on. Ren and Nora are hiding something huge and the tension is getting worse and worse because of it. I hope things will be OK but with that last part? Everything looks not good. Not good at all.
I loved this and look forward to more! I always want more RWBY whenever I can get it and this just made me even more hyped!
January 8th, Sunday:
Tales of Zestiria the X (2017):
Ao Oni The Animation:
Overall I kinda liked this show! The morbid humor is a bit much for me but it was still a solid 6/10! It was fine and I did get some enjoyment out of it despite how incredibly odd and out there it was. I hope we get an actual horror Ao Oni thing soon, though. I would like that more!
