It needs to be a very high up anime that is very popular front page anime (one of those that you know are front page kind before airing) with a very high budget, grade A voice actors all throughout, Grade A animation and that's about it.

 

From the looks of Shinsekai yori, it only faked it. The promo poster was done professoinaly with "those" type of realistic and soft clannad type of style and colors for the trailer and teaser. The info made it seem like it'd be very big and very ambitious. It was but just not done well. Next, it doens't have a high budget. It only faked it to seem so. It only has half the main characters being grade A so there is that. And an excellent ED. So while it fits half of the conditions, it doesn't fit 100% the conditions for a GC.

True true. But I guess I won't be expecting much out of it. If it does have a low budget, I can't really bet that it will perform much better in the later eps. Either way, I'm still going to watch it. Already exhausted all the old anime (well not all, but I'm too lazy to go marathon some others. kinda interested in Macross Frontier though, one of my fellow singer friends love the songs from there) and currently satisfying my hunger with new seasons. :) 

 

I like parenthesizes

Robotics Notes is picking up but their stereotypical Frau kid is so annoying. She acts like the most narcacistic who knows what. If you cancel out her voice on most parts she is actually very normal and pretty. She does not fit her voice. Her voice actor did a good job and whoever picked her for it. But the girl that represents her in the anime is too pretty and perfect even in her weird moments. Also, what is with the stereotypical yaoi and megane love!?? dafuq?

I used to over use parenthesis. 

 

Macross Fronteier was a good series with good plot and characters and music. If that series bombed, it would have GC'd (even though it came first)

 

The budget seems mediocre on this show.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
THEY WENT 500X on sexual relationships. Not romance found in anime. IT is a lot more sexual based than normal.

The relationships are also something very rarely seen in such an expectant anime such as this.

Shinsekai yori is one of the most watched and regarded shows this season with a high budget (mostly). 

The A-1 pictures firm that made this is famous for series such as:
  1. Kannagi: Shrine Maidens
  2. Black Butler
  3. Valkyria Chronicles
  4. Fairy Tail
  5. Working
  6. Black Butler 2
  7. Occult Academy
  8. Ano Hana (bwooop bwooop)
  9. Idolm@ster
  10. Space Brothers
  11. SAO
  12. Magic (2013)
  13. And will be producing the new next season of Oreimo

Half the main characters are voiced by Grade A voice actors.

So here we have one of those main watched series PULLing the weirdest stuff

It's plot executions and happenings were so erradic but now that I am on this episode, it explains that they are chugging through the series.

However what is even more mysterious is the sheer amount of
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
sexual relationships, emphasis on the sensual body parts, and homosexuality and sexuality itself in this episode that baffles me on how such an anime would have it. I don't have an opinion yet on what I care for it. It is just that I was so suprised that they would have this in the series.

Are we talking about gay or lesbian?

WATCH IT...

 

What were the good albums you wanted me to hear?

As expected of 5pb and Nitroplus. Nothing happened in Robotics Notes again except for the usual "one small nice thing" that we have. :/

Another week, another Bowei rant about From the New World. I do agree that they are cutting costs on animation left right and center. has actually started budget cutting measures too. The whole sexual relationships thing was alluded to in the info dump episode, and the episode following that one. 

 

Picked up Infinite Ryvius, only three episodes in and I'm needing to control myself so as to not to gush over how great it is. Well, great other than the chick with the weird clothes popping up everywhere and voicing everyone's inner demons.

So? Hahaha :)

 

The costs are so amazing to look at at how much they are cutting though.

 

Guy that made it went on to be a designer for Gundam Seed. Interesting, if reviews are favorable. I may give it a look.

Rewatching Ture Tears and I gotta say, They make it PAINFULLY obvious who the main heroines are going to be unlike some other series. For one, we have a decent song with a HQ opening of the threee heroines, as well as either a focus in the first episode or a VERY prevelant blush mark. I hate when its hard to tell what blush marks mean.

 

 

Just as he grabbed the tissue box, I was like...fap?

I think True Tears turned me off galge adaptations. That show was just so bland. Bland like distilled water.

It's just becoming tradition now!

 

Gundam Seed Destiny is getting the HD remaster treatment as well BTW. Though who didn't see that coming.

 Not something that can't be fixed by making the wings thicker :P will keep that in mind

That's why I think it's better to use those cloth-covered hair elastics, rather than other purely rubber ones. At least that's what I hope.
