Wow, that was quite a lot of information thrown together in the first episode alone, explaining the history and how the Pandoras fight with their Limiter partners. Very convenient that it must be a female-male pairing too. I wonder if they gotta kiss like the girls in Simoun do. I would take this series more seriously if not for all the selective clothing damage and absolutely ridiculous final 2 minutes. We all know who’s gonna be her Limiter and that they’ll save the world once again; there’s no need to over-dramatize it now. Preview of the next episode also guarantees more clothing damage, pantsu, and probably tits. *yawn again*
Still, the music isn’t half-bad, and I miss hearing Noto Mamiko. The last role I remember of hers from a similar action-packed series is Amaha Masane from Witchblade, and that was just terrible. This quiet character type really does suit her better. *nods nods*
Can’t say I’m expecting much out of Freezing. Guess it’ll be the ecchi anime of this season?
Beelzebub episode 1 is quite similar to the Beelzebub OVA back in 2010, since both are an introduction to the series. While this episode is still considered normal, the scenes when Oga jumps into Alaindelon in the OVA seem to be a prelude to how out-of-this-world the series can be. Personally, seeing Oga jump into Alaindelon reminds me of all the insane stuff in Excel Saga, but it somehow feels annoying dumb here. So far, the fight is not super awesome, the comedy is not really funny, and the opening song irks me. Hopefully the plot gets better and there are more fights, less crying.
PS: I wonder how Miyukichi tolerates voicing Beelzebub.
Your incestuous, pantsu-shots anime of this season. To me, it’s just my Kitamura Eri voice supply. Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne—!! feels like Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai, except with a longer name, no moe, and characters that are oddly disproportionate with long limbs and body. Aka, this show is rather boring. Opening and ending songs are average, but I’m sure I can psych myself to like them just cuz of KitaEri.
So now, the questions are: Just what is the artificial sun and what is Lag Seeing? I wonder if the memory frames that didn’t open belong to Lag himself, or to the spirit amber that he holds. It would be pretty freaky if Lag is the descended form of the artificial sun.
Also, new OP and ED, neither of which is noteworthy. The ED animation is adorable though, like playing a game.
