Voice acting at its finest.
People who haven’t watched Gintama are doing themselves a disservice.
I hate spoiling things for myself, but apparently the final boss theme for Tales of Xillia 2 is a variant of the opening theme. I haven’t even played the game yet and I just can’t get enough of it. August 19th can’t get here quick enough.
In case it slipped your radar, Volume 4 of Watamote came out two days ago. If you haven’t picked it up already, remember that there’s always extra room on the bookshelf for Watamote.
Chapter 63 of Watamote is out, and you can read it here! It’s another short one, but you can never go wrong with more content. Also, the bit on Let’s Plays made it entirely worth it.
Terror in Resonance (Zankyou no Terror) finally started, and with such a strong first episode, I feel that this is going to be one of the must watches for the summer season. With music produced by Yoko Kanno (of Cowboy Bebop fame) and directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (self explanatory), there really aren’t many ways this anime can go wrong. Also, Mappa is behind the animation, and I can’t think of anything they’ve produced that hasn’t been worth watching. If Terror in Resonance isn’t on your summer anime list yet, make sure you throw it on there; it might be one of the most worthwhile additions.
If you’re in a slump as to which anime you should watch next, I highly recommend Silver Spoon. It’s one of those anime that manages to not only put a smile on your face, but keep it on your face during the whole experience. This isn’t without reason either. At its core, Silver Spoon is simply a light hearted show that doesn’t really do anything unusual or out of its comfort zone. However, that’s not a bad thing by any means, as its comfort zone is seeping with enough joy and delight to keep you in a state of pure bliss long after the series has reached its end. The special thing about Silver Spoon is that its simpleness completely over rides the many complexities that other anime try to acquire. It is a unique show that possesses a straightforward style while still managing to contain a lot of substance. Whether you’re eager for something to watch or just looking for a change of pace, Silver Spoon will leave you feeling more than satisfied.
Happy WataMonday everybody! It’s been up several days now awhile, but in case you missed it, here’s Chapter 61 of Watamote! I was a bit disappointed that the chapter is only a whole eight pages long, but I guess sometimes you can’t have it all. Have a great day, and don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
I should post something related to Watamote after this while, but I’ve been playing Nier the last few days, and I just can’t get over how absolutely magnificent its soundtrack is. I’ve played a lot of games, and I mean a lot of games, but as far as soundtracks go, Nier easily leaves a majority of those in the dust.
Is there going to be a second season of watamote?
The anime barely sold over 1000 copies, meaning that, unfortunately, it was pretty unsuccessful. However, the manga is still moderately popular, and there is still an OVA being released as well. The chances are slim, but let’s keep our fingers crossed.
