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.
Sorry, looks like it’s been a bit too long since my last post. For all of you who have been waiting for the Blu-Ray release of Watamote, Rightstuf is currently taking pre-orders! Remember that it’s currently licensed by Sentai, so even though there’s an English dub, don’t expect too much out of it. It won’t actually be available until August 26th, but if you have the money, the price point isn’t too terrible.
Sorry for the few week hiatus. I have no internet at my new place yet and it’s getting pretty bothersome. However, until I do get internet, I’ll try to work harder around it. Celebrating WataMonday by myself just isn’t nearly as fun. Anyways, though it has yet to be translated (and might take a bit longer than usual), it seem that Tomoko gets yet another hair style. Not only that, but it appears her cousin Ki is making another appearance as well. I’m a bit unhappy about the translation delay, but I guess good things really do come to those who wait.
Happy WataMonday everybody! Sorry for missing last week and being late this week, there’s been a lot on my plate with a new job and moving into a new place. In case you missed it, Chapter 59 of Watamote came out a while ago, and you can read it here. Though Watamote is progressing at a steady rate, lately I’m glad to see that Tomoko still continues to tell everything almost exactly how it is, which is what I loved about this chapter in particular. It’s not enough to disregard the concept of popularity, but it’s a start. It might be wishful thinking, but it’s also the kind of substance that would fit in perfectly with a second season of the anime. I hope everyone has a great day, and don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
Happy WataMonday everybody! It also happens to be Cinco de Mayo, so let’s celebrate this one with an AMV. Even if you’re not a fan of Mindless Self Indulgence, I think you can still appreciate it’s use in this AMV, not to mention the time and effort that had to be put into it. Also, if you haven’t read it already, the 12th chapter of Tomomote is out as well, and you can read it here. Have a great Cinco de Mayo, and don’t forget to spread the Tomoko love!
This had to have been my favorite scene in the last episode of Haikyu!! I’m surprised that my favorite anime this season is a sports anime, but it’s so wonderful. It’s one of those shows that just makes you want to get up and get yourself right into the action, hopefully passing time for the next week’s episode while doing so. Even if you’re put off by sport’s anime, I highly recommend you give Haikyu!! a try.
