Mr Raindrop by Amplified

Spring 2011

as per usual, will be blogging each new Spring series as i watch them. all biased opinions ahead, so don't flame me for what i feel.

all biased opinions are up!

Minami (CV Hikasa Youko) takes over as Hodokubo High School's baseball club manager when her best friend, Yuuki (CV Hanazawa Kana), is in hospital for a long term stay due to weak health. while looking for a book that can teach her about managing a club, she accidentally bought Peter Drucker's book, "Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices", on business management instead. not intending to waste the money spent, she starts to manage the club using the book with surprisingly good results.

the usual "high school trying to get into Koshien" story, but with the focus being more on business strategies than the baseball itself. not that there isn't, just not enough. as it is now, we're actually at the end of its 2-weeks-10-episodes run. after being postponed to April 25 from its initial March 14 start date due to the Japan quake, much of the hype, at least for me, has died off. but since it's such a short run, there's no reason not to watch it either. how often do you find an anime series that completes in less than 2 weeks anyway?

30-sai no Hoken Taiiku
Hayao (CV Shimone Hiro), a 30 year old salaryman, is visited by love god Daigorou (CV Okiayu Ryotaro), who is trying all means to help him get rid of his virginity. unknown to Hayao, his love interest Natsu (CV Nazuka Kaori), also have two love goddesses Pi-chan and Ku-chan (CV Kitamura Eri) helping her.

while it isn't as hilarious as Azazel-san, it does have its funny moments, like Daigorou's constant "butt" offering and the censoring of certain words being voiced over by Tachiki Fumihiko. any longer than 15 minutes per episode, i would have grown bored of Hayao being constantly rejected by Natsu.

sequel to the sci-fi historical gag comedy set in an alternative Edo-era conquered by aliens called Amanto, Gintoki (CV Sugita Tomokazu) AKA Gin-san/Gin-chan, Shinpachi (CV Sakaguchi Daisuke) and Kagura (CV Kugimiya Rie) continues to work odd jobs in the Yorozuya to pay their monthly rental.

i'm not technically done with my Gintama marathon, but thought i'd better get this review over and done with. probably the first time and only time, most of my Gintama episodes are watched while doing something else in the background, reading online scans, general web surfing. and you can only do it while watching Gintama, because it is the only anime you can give half your attention, and yet still get all the jokes. plus, i like the various parodies of other anime/manga.

and Elizabeth.

everyone should like Elizabeth.
